Del Mar: Brookie Girls wins, gets claimed


Brookie Girl took a drop in class after a two-month layoff and had not trouble winning Friday's first race for $16,000 claimers, or attracting attention from rival horsemen. The 5-year-old mare was claimed by Mark Glatt.

Brookie Gril waited behind pacesetter Moonshine Alice to the top of the stretch and snuck through along the rail before pulling clear to win by 4 1-2 lengths over Hit the Brix, finishing six furlongs in 1:11.14. Runner-up Hit the Brix was claimed by Alfredo Marquez.

Brookie Girl has won 4 of 9 starts in a two-year career for David and Holly Wilson and trainer Vladimir Cerin.
