Del Mar, Calif.
– Thirty horses tried to clear the $100,000 Grand Prix of Del Mar course on Saturday night, only two were able to do it. Designer Leopoldo Palacios lined up a set of obstacles with enough variety that one little misstep turned otherwise fnatastic rides into efforts of 4 faults or more.

Nineteen from the field of thirty had tried to jump those obstacles before Lane Clarke &  Charlotte Gadbois’ Semira de Saulieu finished with no faults and under the time allowed. Six horses later bow-tie clad Karl Cook & Signe Ostby’s Jonkheer Z did the same, setting up a one-on-one jump-off between two top-five finishers from Friday night’s $25,000 Surfside Grand Prix.

Showing the form that got them there, Clarke & Semira de Salieu were through the jump-off course nearly perfectly in 39.440s. Cook was paying attention however, and matched the effort whiel managing to shave two tenths of a second off the time and earn the win.

Earlier Saturday night, Rich Fellers won the inaugural $10,00 Speed Derby class held prior to the Grand Prix of Del Mar with Colgan Cruise.
