Wickedly Perfect Wins Sorrento Stakes

Rafael Bejarano, Del Mar's leading rider two summers who missed most of the 2009 season when he was injured on opening-day a year ago, booted in his fourth winner of the afternoon Friday aboard Wickedly Perfect  in the featured $150,000 Sorrento Stakes for two-year-old fillies.

 

Wickedly Perfect, sent postward at 5-1 in a field of seven fillies, forged to the front in the upper stretch and then continued on gamely to win by a length over 3-1 A Z Warrior, with 3-1 Izshelegal third, a head behind the runner-up. Previously unbeaten Final Mesa, the 9-5 favorite, faded to sixth.

 

Wickedly Perfect, a daughter of Congrats owned by STD Racing Stable et al and trained by Doug O'Neill, accomplished the 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:17.18 returned $13.80, $4.80 and $3.20 after her second win in as many races. The winner's share of the purse was $90,000.

 

A Z Warrior paid $5.40 and $3.80, while Izshelegal returned $3 to show. Alienation was scratched from the original field.

 

Bejarano's quartet of winners moved him to within five victories of leading rider Joel Rosario, 21-16. Rosario's lone winner on the program came in the opener aboard Tropic Storm via the disqualification of original first-place horse Amazombie.

 

With no perfect tickets in Friday's Pick Six, there will be a carryover of  $130,980 for Saturday's card which features unbeaten champion Zenyatta in the headlined Grade I $300,000 Clement L. Hirsch Stakes. Post time for the first of ten races is 2 p.m.
