Del Mar: Mitchell nears mark


Diamond Journey's win in Thursday's sixth race moved trainer Mike Mitchell within one win of tying active Hall of Famer Ron McAnally on the all-time list for trainer victories at Del Mar, 436-435.

Mitchell finished first and second with Diamond Journey ($3.40) and Carrie Rose, who set the pace. They were separated by a half-length at the wire. Mitchell has one more starter on Thursday, So Tough (5-2 mornine-line favorite) in eighth race.
