The original eight-horse field for Saturday's $400,000 Ramona Handicap (gr. IT) at Del Mar has been reduced to seven with the scratch of Juddmonte Farm's Spanish Fern. The Bobby Frankel trainee was a surprise entrant when entries were taken on Thursday.

IIIT), and she will once again face Miss of Wales, the third-place finisher in the Palomar.
