Congratulations to the winners of the $100,000 Cary Grant Stakes on Sunday, November 19, 2017 at Del Mar

Stephanie and Kosta Hronis.

Hronis Racing’s Edwards Goin Left and jockey Tyler Baze held off Solid Wager (Victor Espinoza) to win the $100,000 Cary Grant Stakes, Sunday, November 19, 2017 at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. Congratulations to the winners!

Edwards Going Left, the 2-1 betting choice, spoiled Solid Wager’s bid for a third consecutive victory in the $100,000 Cary Grant Stakes Sunday, holding on gamely in the final sixteenth to win the seven-furlong sprint by a half-length.

It was Edwards Going Left’s his sixth victory in nine lifetime races as the three-year-old gelding accomplished the distance in 1:22.98. Solid Wager turned in a game performance under Victor Espinoza, rallying from last place in the ten-horse field to narrowly miss a successful defense of his two-time title.

Third was California Diamond, three and one-half lengths behind stablemate Solid Wager from the barn of trainer Peter Miller, with Smokey Image a nose away in fourth.

Edwards Going Left, a son of Midnight Lute owned by Hronis Racing and trained by John Sadler, returned $6.60, $4 and $3 while earning first money of $57,000 to boost his bankroll to $231,390. He was claimed out of his career debut for $50,000 Feb. 9 of this year at Santa Anita.

Solid Wager, sent postward at 9-2, paid $5 and $3.60, while California Diamond returned $4 to show.
