Del Mar: Head to Head wager set for Saturday's San Diego Cap


A $2 head-to-head wager between the speedy Kevlar Kid and the closer Golden Itiz is set for Saturday's $200,000 San Diego Handicap at Del Mar.

The bet features a 10 percent takeout and is simply a bet on which of the runners will have the best finish.

Kevlar Kid and Golden Itiz are both 4-1, the joint third choices in the betting behind Aggie Engineer (3-1) and Spurrier (7-2) in the race over 1 1-16 miles.

Del Mar is offering the head-to-head wager on the feature race each Saturday during the meeting. Last week, Acclamation won the Eddie Read Stakes and was part of the head-to-head wager with Caracortado, who finished third. Acclamation paid $8.40 to win in the conventional pool and paid $4.80 in the head-to-head pool. The head-to-head bet handled $31,413 last week.
