Del Mar: Rosario leaves it late


Jockey Joel Rosario won the fourth race on the heavily favored Tripped the Light but left it to the last chance before reaching the front in the one-mile race for $10,000 claimers. Tripped the Light won by a head.

Tripped the Light ($3.40) was last with three-eighths of a mile remaining and rallied wide through the stretch to catch an unlucky Really Elegant, a 10-1 shot in the field of nine. Veillit' finished third.

Tripped the Light was trained for Wednesday's race by Jeff Mullins, who claimed the 6-year-old mare for $16,000 at Hollywood Park in April. She later finsihed third in claiming races worth $22,500 and $20,000.

Tripped the Light was claimed on Wednesday in an 11-way shake by Hector Palma. Veillit' was claimed by trainer Vann Belvoir.
