Del Mar: Sherlock doubles


Gary Sherlock doubled for the afternoon and Deluxe Bus won his fifth consecutive race in Friday's fourth race.

Ridden by Alonso Quinonez, Deluxe Bus ($5.40) rallied in the final furlong to catch pacesetter Free Time by a neck in the six-furlong race for $28,000 to $32,000 claimers. Deluxe Bus has now won claiming races at values of $30,000 (for maidens), and against winners for $25,000, $35,000, $25,000 and now $32,000.

Deluxe Bus ran six furlongs in 1:10.65.

Sherlock swept the first two legs of the double, having won the third race with Checkmark, in a maiden race over 1 1-16 miles on turf.

Tart N Smart, who finished last in the field of five, was claimed in a four-way shake for $32,000 by Ted H. West.

The field was reduced by one starter when Run Candy Run, a 5-1 shot, unseated jockey Chantal Sutherland in the warmup. Neither horse nor rider were hurt.
