Generous Portion Attracts Baker's Dozen

Del Mar logo

Streaking Perfect Curls and Desperate Measures lead a group of 13 Cal-bred filly 2-year-olds in Wednesday's $100,000, 6-furlong Generous Portion Stakes.

 

Perfect Curls is a perfect three or three in her most recent starts at Golden Gate Fields, Pleasanton and Santa Rosa for trainer Clifford DeLima. In the filly's first start, she was second.

 

Desperate Measures, claimed by trainer Bill Spawr out of a winning effort at Del Mar July 29, won a starter allowance at the seashore in her first race for her new connections. With two straight wins at Del Mar, she appears to love the surface here and seems ready for her stakes debut.


Swiss Wild Cat, one of two runners from the Mike Harrington barn, is back with Cal-breds after trying open company following her victory in the C.T.B.A. Stakes, in which she beat stablemate Hi Ho Yodeler. Hi Ho Yodeler is back for another try.

 

Here's the lineup from the rail, with weights and riders: Lucky Sis, 118, Johnny Gihua; Swiss Wildcat, 123, Christian Santiago Reyes; Miles Rules, 120 Jose Verenzuela; Desperate Measures, 118, Martin Garcia; Yellow Slicker, 118, Martin Pedroza; Rockin Heather, 120 Kerwin John; Faisca, 120, Joel Rosario; Tiz Blushing, 120, David Flores; Vonn Nez, 118, Mike Smith; Clubhouse Rules, 118, Victor Espinoza; Perfect Curls, 122, Rafael Bejarano; Hi Ho Yodeler, 120, Patrick Valenzuela, and Trick Skate, 120, Alex Bisono.
