Liberian Freighter Hangs On in Brubaker

California-bred Liberian Freighter held on tenaciously in the final strides to withstand the desperate, late challenge of even-money favored Hey Elvis and win the featured $93,650 Harry F. Brubaker Stakes by a nose Wednesday at Del Mar.

 

Jockey Martin Garcia sent Liberian Freighter to the front shortly after the start of the mile and one-sixteenth event over the infield grass course. The five-year-old son of Bertrando rated kindly on the lead and then had enough left to win in a photo finish.

 

Quindici Man was third, with Massone fourth in the field of six runners. Sky Cape and One Track Mind were scratched.

 

Liberian Freighter, trained by Hall of Famer Neil Drysdale, ran the distance in 1:41.03 and returned $11.40, $4.80 and $3.80 after his seventh victory in 21 starts for owners Shawn Dugan, the estate of Edward Nahem and Charles Winner. First money of $61,320 increased Liberian Freighter's career earnings to $481,740.

 

Hey Elvis, who was piloted by Rafael Bejarano, paid $3.20 and $2.60, while Quindici Man returned $3.80 to show.

 

Keyed by the $95 upset by Too Pink in the sixth, there were no perfect tickets in Wednesday's Pick Six. Thus, there will be a carryover of $127,414 to launch Thursday's Pick Six.

 

Wednesday's crowd totaled 11,424.
