If the rail makes any difference in a two-horse race, well, Mike Smith drew the rail for Sunday's “Battle of the Exes” match race at Del Mar.  But he also drew the horse installed as the 3-5 favorite.

Joker Face is winless in four races, but he was only beaten a neck in his last start for trainer Peter Eurton.  Sutherland will get the mount on Parable, trained by Garla Gaines and winless from eight maiden starts.  The horses were chosen by the Del Mar racing secretary based on comparable ability, and the mounts were assigned through a blind draw.
