Del Mar: Asmussen, Cash, that is, wins


Trainer Cash Asmussen recorded his first win at Del Mar in Friday's first race when Majestic Vintage ($3.60) rallied from third to catch Towser in the final strides of a six-furlong race for $16,000 claimers.

Majestic Vintage, a 3-year-old gelding, is part of a small team of horses that Asmussen brought from Texas this summer. Majestic Vintage, Asmussen's third starter, had previously raced at Will Rogers Downs, Fair Meadows Tulsa and Lone Star Park this year.

There are not many Del Mar runners with racing experience at Will Rogers Downs and Fair Meadows Tulsa, but that did not stop bettors from knocking Majestic Vintage down for Friday's first race.
