  1. 2nd-Del Mar, $70,500, Msw, 7-31, 2yo, f, 5f, :58.67, ft, 3/4 length. GRACE ADLER (f, 2, Curlin–Our Khrysty {GSW, $313,260}, by Newfoundland), sent off the 2-5 choice for this unveiling, broke outward for the six hole, but rallied into contention before settling into fourth as Sugar Sugar (Twirling Candy) led through a :22.80 half. Asked for more by Flavien Prat and giving it passing the quarter pole, the chestnut was the widest of three with Valentina Ghada (Practical Joke) and Sugar Sugar turning for home, ground to the front in the final sixteenth and got the best of Valentina Ghada by 3/4 o

  3. Champion and 'TDN Rising Star' Essential Quality (c, 3, Tapit–Delightful Quality, by Elusive Quality) covered all the ground and outbattled a game Keepmeinmind (Laoban) for a narrow victory in Saturday's GII Jim Dandy S. at Saratoga. Masqueparade (Upstart) was third. The 2-5 favorite, drawn widest of all in post five, was four wide and kept in the clear down the backstretch in fourth. The last out GI Belmont S. hero began to dial it up while four wide on the far turn and made his bid for the lead parked out even further at the top of the stretch. Keepmeinmind, meanwhile, saved all the ground

  7. Lexitonian (h, 5, Speightstown–Riviera Romper, by Tapit), beaten just a nose in last summer's GI Bing Crosby S. at Del Mar, lit up Saturday's GI Alfred G. Vanderbilt H. at 34-1. Drawn on the fence, he was hustled to the front by Jose Lezcano. The chestnut was pressed through an opening quarter of :22.04 and appeared to be in deep water as Special Reserve (Midshipman) loomed large at the top of the stretch and hit the front. Lexitonian never quit, however, and battled back gamely to turn that one back and win by a neck. The classy 8-year-old Whitmore (Pleasantly Perfect) was third. Scratched
