Bench Points (pictured in the winner's circle) rallied from off the pace to score by nearly three lengths as the 2-to-1 co-favorite under jockey Rafael Bejarano in the $100,000 The Graduation at Del Mar on Wednesday.

The California-bred two-year-old son of Benchmark improved to a perfect two-for-two in his career for trainer Tim Yakteen and could be pointed towards the $250,000 Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity on closing day against open company.

A trio of boys completed the superfecta, with Joy Boy finishing second, Blingboy coming in third, and Offlee Wild Boys running fourth.
