Del Mar: Four claims in 9th


There were four claims in Wednesday's ninth race, with third-place finisher Deputiformer the best-placed horses among the ones that changed barns for $16,000.

Deputiformer, who finished behind Gilligan ($9.80) and Whirling Thunder, was claimed by Jeff Mullins.

Indy Ride, who finished sixth, was claimed by Mark Glatt in a six-way shake; Racketeer, who was seventh, was claimed by Jack Carava; and ninth-place finisher Courtside Action was claimed in a two-way shake by William E. Morey.

Race winner Gilligan won for the third consecutive race, having won a $16,000 claimer on June 17 and a $12,500 claimer on July 10.
