DEL MAR, California — Lil Bit O'Fun rallied from far back to win the $95,500 Wickerr Stakes by 2 1/2 lengths at Del Mar on Wednesday.

Ridden by Aaron Gryder, Lil Bit O'Fun ran a mile on the turf in 1:32.35 and paid $43.60, $17.20 and $8.40.

Rangi returned $19.40 and $9.20 at 19-1 odds, while Bright Thought was another nose back in third and paid $5.80 to show.
