Trainer Bob Baffert's brilliant 2-year-old filly Point Ashley likely will be an odds-on favorite in Saturday's $250,000 Oak Leaf Breeders' Cup Stakes (gr. I) at 1 1/16 miles.
Jockey Victor Espinoza set a Del Mar record with seven victories Monday when favored Point Ashley proved a handy winner in the $250,000 Del Mar Debutante (gr. I).
Undefeated stakes winners Untouched Talent and Pinata headline a field of nine 2-year-old fillies in Monday's $250,000 Del Mar Debutante (gr. I) at 7 furlongs on the main track.
Favored Untouched Talent inched away from the pack leaving the turn and rolled to a three-length victory in the $150,000 Sorrento for 2-year-old fillies at Del Mar Saturday.
The seven 2-year-old fillies entered for Saturday's $150,000 Sorrento Stakes (gr. I) are short on experience, but the winner will take a big jump toward the Del Mar Debutante (gr. I) on Sept. 4.
