Favored Quick Enough, claimed for $32,000 at Del Mar July 25, declared a quick dividend on his new owners' imvestment with a hard-earned victory in Thursday's feature at five furlongs on the grass.

 

With David Flores in the saddle, Quick Enough, sent to the gate at 5-2, wore down pacesetting Winter Camp in the final sixteenth to win by three-quarters of a length in :55.46 for the distance. Winter Camp was a neck in front of Square Deal at the wire.

The day proved disastrous for talented young jockey Joe Talamo who suffered a fractured left wrist after he was unseated during the running of the third race  when his mount, Rockstar Ben, fell after sustaining a broken  right foreleg in midstretch of the race at one-mile on the grass.

 

X-rays at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla confirmed Talamo's injury which will sideline him until the Oak Tree-at-Santa Anita meeting beginning September 29.  Entering Thursday's card, Talamo had won ten races to be tied with Rafael Bejarano for third place in the Del Mar standings.

 

Unfortunately, Rockstar Ben's injury was catastrophic, necessitating the three-year-old gelding's euthanization.
