Mandella waxes Poetic after debut score


DEL MAR, Calif. – Trainer Richard Mandella came to Del Mar with a promising group of 2-year-old fillies and got his first win with them on Sunday, when Poetic tallied in her debut going 5 1/2 furlongs, a performance that likely will put her in the Grade 1, $300,000 Del Mar Debutante on Sept. 2, Mandella said.
