LATE SHUFFLING LEAVES DEL MAR HANDICAP WITH STRONG HAND

Hall of Fame trainer Neil Drysdale scratched Topic, the 3-1 morning line second choice for Friday's CTT & TOC Handicap, to run her against males – among them stablemate and 7-2 morning line favorite Fire With Fire – in Saturday's Grade II $250,000 Del Mar Handicap.

Trainer Dan Hendricks, who entered Irish Surf in both the Handicap and Sunday's $1 million TVG Pacific Classic, will scratch from the Handicap to run in the Classic. That created an opening for Ice Cream Truck, the lone also eligible in the Handicap (and also entered in the Classic) that trainer A.C. Avila said he was "80 percent certain" to fill.
