The $100,000 Desi Arnaz Stakes is the featured event Sunday, November 15 at Del Mar as a field of seven juvenile fillies will contest the seven furlong event over the main track.
Bob Baffert will saddle 2/1 morning line favorite Pretty N Cool after her Grade 2 victory October 18 in the Matron Stakes at Belmont Park. The precocious daughter of Scat Daddy has won 3 of 4 career starts including a victory in the Grade 2 Sorrento Stakes. In her only loss, Pretty N Cool finished second in the Grade 1 Del Mar Debutante in September. The battle-tested filly could be much lower than her morning line price in what amounts to a significant drop in class. Martin Garcia will ride while breaking from post 7.
Lucky Follie tries stakes foes again
Lucky Follie (5/2) appears the main danger to the favorite after a third-place effort in the Surfer Girl Stakes last out. The Richard Mandella trainee was making just her second career start in the Surfer Girl following a maiden victory September 6 at Del Mar, and could improve with experience. Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens will be in the irons breaking from post 3.
“Other” half of Baffert entry worth a look
Baffert will also send out Treasuring (4/1), who broke her maiden last-out at Los Alamitos following a pair of third-place efforts at Del Mar over the summer. Treasuring, another well-bred filly, also figures to improve with racing experience. Victor Espinoza will be aboard, breaking from post 6.
