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.
With the Breeders’ Cup rapidly approaching at Santa Anita November 1 and 2, some of the future lines look too good to pass. This is particularly true with a wide-open Breeders’ Cup Classic field that seems to have oddsmakers perplexed.
With the 2019 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe looming Oct.7 at Longchamp, the entire racing world will be transfixed on Enable as the superstar filly will attempt yet another historic feat.
