Del Mar: Lordgivemealift wins, gets claimed


Lordgivemealift finished second in a $12,500 claimer on Saturday and won an $8,000 claimer on Thursday.

In Thursday's fourth race, Lordgivemalift ($4.80) never faced a serious threat and drew off to win by 6 1-2 lengths over Don Elias M. Lordgivemealift, a 5-year-old gelding, ran 5 1-2 furlongs in 1:02.96, not far off Sidney's Candy's 2009 track record of 1:02.71. The track has played fast on Thursday.

Not surprisingly, Lordgivemealift was popular with the claiming crowd. There were six claims submitted for Lordgivemealift, who will now be trained by Peter Miller.

Three other horses were claimed - sixth-place finisher Warring Heart and seventh-place finisher Forest Prince, both by Chuck Treece; and ninth-place finisher Sky Thrill by Vann Belvoir.
