Seven Juvenile Fillies Set for the $200,000 Sorrento Stakes

Category : News - Wed 06/08/2014 - 12:16 EDT

Two-year-old fillies will take center stage at Del Mar on Wednesday in their featured race, the 46th running of the $200,000 Sorrento Stakes. The Grade 2 event will be contested at six and a half furlongs over the synthetic main track and has drawn a field of seven.

The 2-1 morning line favorite is the globe-trotting Sunset Glow. Trained by Wesley Ward, the two-year-old daughter of Exchange Rate will be making her fourth career start and has competed at four different racetracks including an international trip to Royal Ascot. While in Great Britain, the gray filly was second in the Albany Stakes (G3). Victor Espinoza will remain aboard and the pair will break from post two.

Caval trying stakes company for first time

Breaking from the outside post is Caval, tabbed at 5-2 on the morning line. The two-year-old filly is from the first crop from freshman stallion Blame, winner of the Breeders’ Cup Classic. A $150,000 purchase as a yearling, the bay filly won her debut at Santa Anita by five and a half lengths  in June for Jerry Hollendorfer and will have Elvis Trujillo back in the irons.

La Grange trying for back to back stakes wins

Also in the field is La Grange, a daughter of Horse of the Year Curlin who is 4-1 on the morning line. Trained by Keith Desormeaux and ridden by his brother Kent Desormeaux, the bay filly broke her maiden against stakes company in the Cinderella Stakes at Los Alamitos in her second career start. She was the runner-up in her debut over synthetics at Arlington Park. Purchased for only $17,000 as a yearling, she has earned $67,200 to date.
