DEL MAR, Calif. (AP)
Gary Stevens led 10-1 long-shot No Silent to a gate-to-wire victory Thursday in the $85,000 feature, the 50-year-old Hall of Fame jockey's sixth win in three days at Del Mar.
Stevens, continuing a comeback that began in January, took the 4-year-old No Silent straight to the lead in the six-horse he held off Chiloquin by 1 1/4 lengths, covering 6-1/2 furlongs in 1:15.82.
No Silent paid $23.80 for his fourth career win and increased his lifetime earnings to $220,970.
Mobilized finished third. Heavy favorite Castaway was fifth.
No Silent is trained by Gary Mandella, whose father, Richard Mandella, saddled a winner for Stevens on Wednesday in the Del Mar feature.
