Del Mar: Mitchell claims winner


Trainer Mike Mitchell claimed Kalk Bay ($13.80) from Friday's fifth race, after the 3-year-old filly rallied wide to win a maiden claimer over six furlongs.

Kalk Bay was claimed for $30,000. She finished 1 1-4 lengths in front of So Tempted, with Mama Janka third in the field of eight. Stary Light, the 7-5 favorite, was never a threat and finished fourth. Kalk Bay made her third start on Friday, having finished fourth and sixth in her first two races.

Kalk Bay was the last leg of a $1 pick three that paid $596 and covered the first three legs of Friday's pick six, which has turned out to be a tricky sequence so far. Akeela ($31.40) and Anniversary Girl ($11.80) won the first two legs.
