Del Mar: Rosario leaves it late on Gab Power


Leading jockey Joel Rosario won Thursday's first race on Gab Power, but it was not one of his more elegant rides.

Sent off at 4-5, Gab Power was last of four on the turn of a starter allowance for 2-year-olds over 5-1 2 furlongs. Rosario was forced to wait behind the leaders for room, eventually finding space on the outside in early stretch. He quickly caught Runaway Wildcat and a fading Success Again to win by three-quarters of a length in 1:04.60.

Gab Power is trained by Peter Eurton.

Rosario began T'hursday's program with 10 wins at the meeting, three more than Rafael Bejarano.
