Sadler, who won last year's Sorrento for the first time with Tasha's Miracle, also entered Evita Argentina in the 6 1/2-furlong event. The field features the first three finishers in Hollywood Park's Landaluce June 28.
Emmy Darling, a Florida-bred chestnut daughter of Graeme Hall ridden by David Flores, made a strong bid along the inside in the six-furlong Landaluce to post a two-length victory over Glitter City. The latter edged even-money favorite Cosmic Queen by a neck for the runner-up spot.
In her debut June 15 for owners Ike and Dawn Thrash, Emmy Darling ran second, two lengths behind Glitter City in a five-furlong maiden special weight race.
A Florida-bred by City Place filly trained by Jeff Mullins, Murray Smith's Glitter City has the maiden win over Emmy Darling and two seconds in her three-race career.
Trained by Christopher Paasch, Cosmic Queen, a daughter of Stormy Atlantic , was made the heavy choice in the Landaluce after a front-running 2 1/2-length tally in her debut at Hollywood Park May 15.
Trifecta King, a 3 3/4-length winner of the May 25 Cinderella at 5 1/2 lengths in her last start, returns to action for trainer Doug O'Neill. Trifecta King is a Kentucky-bred daughter of Peace Rules.
Amina, Dash Dot Dash and Evita Argentina head into the Sorrento off maiden victories at Hollywood.
