La Jolla 1-2 Likely For Del Mar Derby

La Jolla Handicap winner Old Time Hockey and runner-up My Best Brother came out of the race in good order and will be given every consideration to run next in the $300,000 Grade II Del Mar Derby on Sunday, September 2.

The Derby, final in the three-race turf stakes series for 3-year-olds, is expected to also feature Bob Baffert-trained Midnight Crooner, winner of a division of the opening day Oceanside Stakes but given a break for the La Jolla.

“He (Old Time Hockey) is fine and we’re just sitting around enjoying a Sunday morning,” trainer Tom Proctor said. Proctor is a second-generation trainer for the Glen Hill Farm of owner Leonard Lavin and several members of the Proctor and Lavin families were gathered around an umbrella-shaded table near Barn X in the stable area.

In saddling Banned to win the Del Mar Derby for Glen Hill last year, Proctor matched the feat of his father Willard in 1973 when he won the Derby with Right Honorable for the farm.

Julio Canani, trainer of My Best Brother, said the colt came out of the La Jolla fine. My Best Brother led for virtually every step of the 1 1/16 miles except the last when Old Time Hockey was the winner by a nose. “It happens sometimes,” Canani said.
