Melatonin successfully returns from severe illness


DEL MAR, Calif. – Melatonin was purchased privately after a maiden win in February 2014 and didn’t return to the races until last Saturday, when he scored a 30-1 surprise in an allowance race at Del Mar. It was a long road back for him, not just in terms of the 18-month layoff but what he had to overcome just to get back to the races.
