Halo Dolly Carries Top Weight in Yellow Ribbon

Halo Dolly, who joined elite Del Mar company when she won the Solana Beach Handicap for the third straight year August 18, will try to make it two wins in a row in the Grade II $150,000 Yellow Ribbon Handicap when she carries highweight of 123 pounds versus nine older fillies and mares in the seaside track’s Labor Day Monday holiday feature.

Leading rider Rafael Bejarano again has the call from trainer Jerry Hollendorfer on Halo Dolly who joined such memorable stars as Native Diver, Flawlessly, Track Gal and Zenyatta as horses winning the same stakes three years in a row when she won the Solana Beach ‘Cap.

A year ago, she captured the Yellow Ribbon by 1 ¼ lengths over City to City while carrying 120 pounds. The California-bred daughter of Popular is a winner of 16 of 32 starts and $861,736 in a successful career.

Opposing Halo Dolly Monday will be My Gi Gi, Garrett Gomez; Quiet Oasis, Mario Gutierrez; Closing Range, Corey Nakatani; In the Stars, Gary Stevens; Egg Drop, Martin Garcia; Customer Base, Edwin Maldonado; A Jealous Woman, Patrick Valenzuela; Royal Empress, Julien Leparoux, and Appealing, Alonso Quinonez.

Del Mar will present a stakes triple-header Monday. In addition to the Yellow Ribbon Handicap, carded as the ninth race on an 11-race program beginning at 2 p.m., the track will offer the $150,000 I’m Smokin Stakes for California-bred two-year-olds at six furlongs and the $100,000 Oak Tree Juvenile Fillies Turf at a mile on the infield grass course.

The I’m Smokin Stakes will be the fifth race, while the Oak Tree Juvenile Fillies Turf will occupy the sixth race slot.

The 37-day 2013 Del Mar racing season will end Wednesday, featuring its traditional closing-day event, the Grade I $300,000 Del Mar Futurity for the best two-year-olds in the West.
