Updated: August 06, 2020

In what appears to be a wide-open edition of the Grade II, $150,000 Sorrento Stakes at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, seven fillies will face starter Jay Slender Friday, August 7 for a six-furlong tussle that will reward the one home first with a nice payday, a chunk of black type and a leg up toward the meet's top prize for 2-year-old distaff runners -- the $250,000, Grade I Del Mar Debutante on Sunday, September 6.

The 52nd running of the race features a trio of local juveniles who all scored their maiden victories last out; a trio of out-of-town runners who also scored their maiden victories last out, and a first-time starter who drew a big price at a 2-year-olds in training sale and has been working steadily toward her debut.
