Trainer Jim Cassidy hasn't had much luck beating Super Freaky, losing to her three times with Passified, but he's hopeful Saturday will bring a different result in the $150,000 San Clemente Handicap (gr. IIT) for 3-year-old fillies at one mile on the turf at Del Mar.
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.
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.
