Luazur captures Del Mar Handicap

September 06, 1993|By Los Angeles Times

DEL MAR, Calif. -- Luazur, a French-bred gray colt, won by a nose yesterday over Kotashaan in the $250,000 Del Mar Handicap, handing another 2-5 favorite an unexpected defeat in an important stake at this seaside track.

In the $1 million Pacific Classic two weeks ago, Bertrando was a front-running winner at Best Pal's expense.

Both Bertrando and Luazur are trained by Bobby Frankel, who 12 years ago took a $50,000 claiming horse and won his first Del Mar Handicap for Edmund Gann, the Rancho Santa Fe businessman who also owns Luazur.
