Del Mar McAnally's Favorite Track

Hall of Fame trainer Ron McAnally can be found, as usual, up on the balcony or down in his office or the stalls of Barn I in the Del Mar stable area.

“I’ve been coming here since 1948,” McAnally, who celebrated his 81st birthday on July 11, said earlier this week. “It’s my favorite track.”

McAnally has been good for Del Mar and vice versa. He entered the 2013 meeting second on the track’s all-time list for stakes victories with 75 to Bob Baffert’s 102 and was only passed by Mike Mitchell last season for the top spot for overall victories. Mitchell has 454 wins to McAnally’s 438.

McAnally , who has 12 horses here, hopes to add to the totals, especially in the stakes category. He has Suggestive Boy, winner of the Wickerr Stakes and  fifth in the 2012 TVG Pacific Classic,  in training  for a possible start late in the meet and the good fillies  Charm The Maker and Sugarinthemorning also being prepped here.
