Egg Drop wins Yellow Ribbon Handicap

DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) - Egg Drop defeated Appealing by a head to win the $150,000 Yellow Ribbon Handicap on Monday at Del Mar.

Ridden by Brice Blanc, Egg Drop ran 1 1/16 miles on the turf course in 1:40.50 and paid $8, $4.80 and $3.80.

Appealing returned $26 and $13 at odds of 34-1, while My Gi Gi was another 1 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $5.20 to show. Defending champion Halo Dolly was fourth.

There was a stewards' inquiry because of an incident in deep stretch where Garrett Gomez on My Gi Gi took up while moving between Egg Drop and Appealing. However, after a video review the stewards ruled that the incident occurred at a point in the race where it did not affect the order of finish.

The victory, worth $90,000, increased Egg Drop's career earnings to $254,020, with four wins in 10 starts.

In the $150,000 I'm Smokin Stakes for 2-year-olds, Jedi Mind Trick overhauled Gangnam Guy in the final strides to win by a neck.

Ridden by Victor Espinoza, Jedi Mind Trick ran six furlongs on the synthetic surface in 1:09.76 and paid $12.20 to win. He earned $85,500 for his third win in four career races.

Ashleyluvssugar was third. Aotearoa, the 4-5 favorite, was fourth.

In the $100,000 Oak Tree Juvenile Fillies Turf Stakes, Ireland-bred Clenor rallied from last to win by 3 1/4 lengths under Rafael Bejarano.

Clenor ran a mile on the turf in 1:34.64 and paid $3.80 to win as the 4-5 favorite. She earned $60,000 for her second win in five career races.

Nesso was second and Pleasant Miss third.
