Multiple graded stakes winner Intercontinental, ridden by Jerry Bailey, took the early lead and held off a late challenge by Amorama in Saturday's $180,000 Palomar Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. IIT) for fillies and mares at Del Mar. In the co-featured El Cajon, Bob Baffert tied the record for stakes victories.
