Del Mar: Three claims in third


There were three claims in Saturday's third race, including race winner Rule the Storm.

Rule the Storm won the one-mile turf race for $35,000 to $40,000 claimers over Apt to Be Amazing, and was claimed for $40,000 by trainer Leonard Espinoza. Third-place finisher Prytania was claimed by John Sadler. Dextera, who finished sixth in the field of seven, was claimed in a two-way shake by Bob Hess, Jr.

Rule the Storm, 5, has won nine of 24 starts and five of her last eight races in starts at Hollywood Park, Golden Gate Fields and Del Mar. She was claimed for $40,000 by trainer Mike Mitchell on June 24. Saturday's race was her first start for him.
