Fairplex: Excess Summer romps


POMONA, Calif. - Excess Summer ($2.60) affirmed his status as the top-ranked California-bred 3-year-old at Fairplex Park, where he trounced seven rivals by five lengths in the $100,000 Pomona Derby and carried Julie Krone to a win in her first mount at the Los Angeles County Fair.

The win was the fifth in eight starts for Excess Summer, who has earned $234,921 in seven starts since trainer Jeff Mullins claimed him from Mike Machowsky for $40,000.
