Sharp Samurai Wins Del Mar Derby at Del Mar Race Track

The $250,000 G2 Del Mar Derby took place Sunday, September 3 at Del Mar racetrack in Del Mar, California - a 1 1/8-mile turf test for horses three years old. Mark Glatt-trained 2-1 race favorite Sharp Samurai continued to impress, beating a pretty good field for his third straight stakes score - this time by just a half-length. Graded Stakes winner 3-1 Big Score finished second in the field of 10 with multiple stakes winner Bowies Hero, who was also sent off at 3-1 getting in for third, another half-length back. Colonist closed well to finish fourth and was followed by Fashion Business, Ritzy A. P., Double Touch, Monster Man, Marckie's Water, and Harbour Master, to complete the order of finish. Sorry Erik scratched.
