Del Mar: Canani could have big day


Trainer Julio Canani won Saturday's second race with Clue Me In, who fought back in the final sixteenth to pass Charlie and Chris near the wire of a $10,500 to $12,500 claimer over 5 1-2 furlongs.

Clue Me In ($7), ridden by Martin Pedroza, rallied three-wide on the turn to reach contention, but was passed in early stretch by Charlie and Chris, ridden by Tyler Baze, who rallied four-wide. But it was Clue Me In who closed best to win by a nose in 1:16.69.

Mr. Saturdaynight, who finished fourth, was claimed in a six-way shake by Robertino Diodoro for $12,500.

Clue Me In ($7) may not be Canani's final winner on Saturday. In the fourth race, Canani starts Stoneside, a 7-2 chance on the morning-line, in a $35,000 claimer over a mile on turf. In the fifth race, Canani starts 3-1 morning-line favorite Holladay Road in an optional claimer over a mile.
