Del Mar: Three claims in second


Three fillies and mares, but not runaway race winner Malusita, were claimed in Thursday's second race, run over 1 1-16 miles for $18,000 to $20,000 claimers.

Vikkilee, who finsihed fourth, was claimed for $20,000 in a four-way shake by Caesar Dominguez. Granite Girl, who finished fifth, beaten 18 1-2 lengths, was claimed by William E. Morey. Dave's Revenge, who had a history of breaking poorly but was with the field in this race, was claimed by Julio Canani. She finished sixth, beaten 20 3-4 lengths.

Malusita ($9.60) led throughout and won by 5 1-4 lengths in 1:36.32. The 5-year-old mare won a $25,000 claimer on the main track at Hollywood Park on May 15 but was last of eight in a similar race on turf on June 9. She has won 8 of 40 starts.
