Del Mar: Late scratch in 5th


Random Luck, a 9-1 shot, was a late scratch from Wednesday's fifth race for maiden claimers. The scratch was announced as the field was being loaded, and there was virtually no delay to allow bettors to cancel tickets on Random Luck and reinvest in the race.

What a Shill ($12.60) rallied from off the pace to win the maiden claimer over 5 1-2 furlongs in 1:04.98 by 2 1-4 lengths over Warren's Lady, the 8-5 second choice. Lorenbray, the 3-2 favorite, finished seventh, never threaten the leaders. There were three claims for Lorenbray, who will be trained by Mike Mitchell.
