Del Mar: Hess claims Siete Machos


Siete Machos, the winner of Sunday's seventh race for $40,000 claimers, was claimed by Bob Hess, Jr., on behalf of Roddy Valente.

Siete Machos, who raced for trainer Walther Solis on Sunday, ran a mile in 1:34.99, drawing off through the stretch under jockey Christian Santiago Reyes to win by 4 1-4 lengths over Keen Bidder. Siete Machos ($7) was favored, and won for the third time in his 14-race career.
