Rail Trip wins $200,000 San Diego Handicap (Grade II)

Rail Trip, who hadn’t won a race in two years, stalked leader John Scott and fought his way to a half-length victory in the $200,000 San Diego Handicap (Grade II) at Del Mar on July 28. The 7-year-old gelding, ridden by Jose Valdivia Jr., completed 1 1/16 miles on the Polytrack in 1:43.14. John Scott — the race favorite — held on for second, while Kettle Corn finished third. Owned by Jay Em Ess Stable and trained by Ron Ellis, Rail Trip has now established himself as a contender for the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic (Grade I) on Aug. 26. Photo/Kelley Carlson
