Hollywood: Acclamation out of Sunday Sunset


Acclamation has been withdrawn from Sunday's $100,000 Sunset Handicap at Hollywood Park and is expected to start in the $300,000 Eddie Read Stakes at Del Mar next Saturday.

The scratch was submitted on Saturday morning, leaving the Grade 3 Sunset Handicap with a field of eight. Acclamation would have been a heavy favorite in the Sunset, in search of his third consecutive graded stakes win on turf at the Hollywood Park meeting, which ends on Sunday.

Without Acclamation, Celtic New Year, second to Acclamation in the Charles Whittingham Handicap last month, is the 2-1 favorite on the morning-line.
