DEL MAR, Calif. -- U'narack rallied on the outside beat Ambitious Brew by a half-length Friday in the $200,000 Real Good Deal Stakes at Del Mar.

U'narack, the 3-year-old gelding trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, was stuck behind horses on the final turn, and jockey Julien Leparoux guided him to the outside for a homestretch charge.

Leparoux passed a pair of Hall of Fame riders -- Gary Stevens aboard Raised a Secret and Mike Smith aboard Ambitious Brew -- to give U'narack his third victory in five lifetime starts.

"We had a perfect trip and he quickened very well at the finish," Leparoux said.

U'narack covered seven furlongs on the main track in 1:22.23 and paid $12.60, $6.80 and $4.80. A California-bred son of Unusual Heat, U'narack earned $110,000 for the victory, pushing his total to $194,080.

Ambitious Brew returned $9.40 and $5.20, and Raised a Secret paid $3.80 to show.

Tiz a Minister, the favorite in the eight-horse field, finished fifth.
