The top of the market was up, the middle market increased, and now the bottom end of the Keeneland September sale is showing signs of intense strength.
With Sorrento (gr. III) winner Inspiring sidelined, nine 2-year-old fillies led by dual stakes winner Souvenir Gift will go postward Saturday for the $250,000 Del Mar Debutante (gr. I) at seven furlongs on the main track.
Undefeated Souvenir Gift, who has two stakes victories among her three wins, heads a field of eight 2-year-old fillies in Saturday's $150,000 Sorrento Stakes (gr. III) at 6 1/2 furlongs on Del Mar's main track.
Souvenir Gift rallied in the stretch under Mike Smith to remain undefeated with a 1 1/4-length triumph in the $106,800 Landaluce Stakes (gr. III) at Hollywood Park.
