Ridden by Joe Talamo, Halo Dolly ran 1-1/16 miles on the turf in 1 minute, 40.52 seconds and returned $13.60 on a $2 win bet. City to City, the 2011 winner of the race when it was called the Palomar Handicap, came up just short as the 5-2 favorite. Vivo Per Lei was another nose back in third.

Jerry Hollendorfer trained the top two finishers. Talamo earned his 11th stakes win of the meet, one shy of the Del Mar record of 12, shared by four riders.

The victory, worth $150,000, increased Halo Dolly's career earnings to $623,396, with 13 wins in 22 starts.
