Del Mar: Noses separate first three


Golden Mexico ($13.20) held off Megastar by a nose to win Saturday's first race, an optional claimer over 1 1-16 miles on turf. Worth Repeating was only a nose behind Megastar at the wire.

Golden Mexico was timed in 1:41.13, and recorded his first win since an allowance race at Keeneland in April 2009. This was Golden Mexico's first start since a sixth-place finish in an allowance race at Monmouth Park on June 6.
