Date: 11/15/2020

The feature race on the fourth Sunday of Del Mar's Bing Crosby Season was the $100,000 Cary Grant Stakes (G3) for Golden State Series eligible California bred or sired older horses sprinting 7 furlongs on the main track. It was cooler than Saturday, with cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid 60's at the seaside oval. After 3 scratches, Galilean was sent off as the 11-10 favorite in the field of 7 off his win in the California Flag Handicap after finishing 5th in the Del Mar Mile Handicap (G2). In to challenge him included 9-4 second choice Take the One O One, 4th in the Awesome Again (G1), and 9-2 third choice El Tigre Terrible, 5th in the Eddie D (G2) after winning the Real Good Deal Stakes.

Into the stretch Bettor Trip Nick tired allowing Take the One O One to inherit the front through 3/4 in 1:09.56, but Loud Mouth was sent 4 wide for room by jockey Abel Cedillo and then rallied to win by 3/4 length in 1:22.34.

He got some real questionable rides, several of them, but I knew this horse could run. We went the seven today and worked out and he ran huge. This horse has a big heart and when he gets to the lead or gets close, he runs. And he's got a really nice way of moving. He's a runner and this is a hell of a win."

When he made his move (on the turn), I moved with him. Then I went by him in the straight and went after the leader (Take the One O One). My horse had it and we got him."
