Undefeated 2YO Filly Fancied For US Del Mar Gr1 Debutante
OBS Spring Sale sale topper Executiveprivilege (First Samurai-Refugee, by Unaccounted For) is a popular choice to win this weekend's Gr1 Debutante Stakes for juveniles at Del Mar. Winner of each of her three starts, including the Listed Landaluce Stakes and the Gr3 Sorrento Stakes, victory for the Bob Baffert-trained 2YO filly would give her trainer seven victories in the race. Sold for US$650,000 at the Ocala Breeders Spring Sale of 2YOS, Executiveprivilege is from the third crop for First Samurai (Giant's Causeway-Freddie Frisson, by Dixieland Band) and is his ninth stakes winner. She meets a tough field that also includes unbeaten winner Mechaya (City Zip-Sago, by Valid Expectations).
