Del Mar: Three claims in 4th


A trio of 3-year-olds, including race winner Gutshot Straight, were claimed for $20,000 in Friday's fourth race.

Gutshot Straight ($4.40) fought for the early lead and pulled clear to win by 2 1-4 lengths under jockey Martin Pedroza, his second consecutive winner of the day. Gutshot Straight was claimed in a four-way shake by trainer Sal Gonzalez, who won two races on Thursday.

Runner-up Polly's Dancer was claimed in a four-way shake by Mark Glatt. Blingboy, who finished fifth, was claimed by Jeff Metz.

Gutshot Straight had won a $20,000 claiming race for maidens in May and a $16,000 claimer in July, both at Hollywood Park. In Friday's race, he ran six furlongs in 1:10.14.
