DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) Moulin de Mougin rallied to win the $250,000 John C. Mabee Stakes for older fillies and mares by a half-length at Del Mar on Sunday.

Ridden by Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith on his 49th birthday, Moulin de Mougin ran 1 1/8 miles on the turf in 1:47.96 and paid $18.40, $7.20 and $4.20 at 8-1 odds.
