Shining Energy, the upset winner of the grade II San Clemente Stakes on July 30, heads a field of 3-year-old fillies in Saturday's 49th edition of the grade I, $300,000 Del Mar Oaks at 1 1/8 miles on the Jimmy Durante turf course.Trainer Julio Canani said of Shining Energy Thursday morning, "She's doing very, very good. She worked well and I think she'll run good."Aside from the 10 in the body of the race, there is one also-eligible, who could get into the race in the event of a scratch.
Lining up to test her, among others, will be Louvain, the San Clemente favorite who finished fourth, beaten only two lengths; Singhalese, who was impressive in an allowance/optional claiming race the day after the San Clemente; and Three Degrees, who won Hollywood Park's grade II Honeymoon Breeders' Cup Handicap June 5 prior to finishing fifth in the grade I American Oaks on July 3, also at Hollywood.All will carry 122 pounds.The field for the Del Mar Oaks:
