Big Book (Mr. Big) earned first black type placing in the Torrey Pines Stakes

By Millie Ball

George Krikorian's homebred filly Big Book finished second to Grade 1 winner Stellar Wind in Sunday's feature at Del Mar, the 38th running of the Grade 3 Torrey Pines Stakes. Big Book entered the race undefeated in three starts and exited with her first black type placing. 

Trainer Tim Yakteen was very pleased with her effort, "She came out of the race in excellent shape.  She will get a little breather during the Los Alamitos meeting and be ready for Santa Anita."
