Halljoy is at her best with more distance


DEL MAR, Calif. – Halljoy won the very first race she ran in this country right here on the Del Mar turf, going a flat mile last summer, but that was practically a sprint for her. Though winless in three starts since, she has performed admirably against better stock at longer distances, and that’s one reason why she’s going to travel 1 3/8 miles in the featured seventh race Thursday.
