Head-to-Head: Acclamation vs. Caracortado

The first head-to-head bet in Del Mar history, a newly-installed regular Saturday feature-race offering during the meeting, is Acclamation vs. Caracortado in the Eddie Read.


“It’s pretty cool to be a part of the first one,” said Mike Machowsky, trainer of Caracortado. “I’ll be interested to see what they come up with for the odds.”


Asked to assume the role of track oddsmaker Russ Hudak for the sake of conjecture, Machowsky went with Caracortado at 9-5 and Acclamation at 5-2. The head-to-head horses drew adjacent post positions. Acclamation will break from the No. 6 spot under Joel Rosario, Caracortado the No. 7 under Joe Talamo.


Machowsky said that if all went well for Caracortado in the Read, “I might run him back in the Pacific Classic.”
