Debutante, Futurity Noms Close June 4

Nominations close this Friday for Del Mar's two premier stakes for 2-year-olds -- the Grade I Darley Debutante for fillies and the Grade I Del Mar Futurity for all juveniles. The championship events will be renewed this season on Saturday, September 4 (Debutante) and Wednesday, September 8 (Futurity).


The nomination fee for each race is $250 with no sustaining payments required. Both are run at seven furlongs and both carry guaranteed purses of $250,000.

Nomination forms for the juvenile features can be downloaded on line at the Del Mar website -- www.delmarracing.com -- followed by clicking on the "Horsemen" section. The forms can be filled out and faxed back to the Del Mar racing office (858) 794-1049, or nominations can be e-mailed directly to Del Mar at nominations@dmtc.com


Last year Southern Equine Stable's Mi Sueno won the Debutante, while Pegram, Watson and Weitman's Lookin At Lucky took the Futurity. Mi Sueno was injured shortly thereafter and retired, but Lookin At Lucky went on to be named 2-year-old champion.


Del Mar's 37-day season opens on Wednesday, July 21 and run until September 8. With the exception of Labor Day Monday, racing will be conducted on a Wednesday through Sunday basis.
