Pretty N Cool Rallies To Take C.E.R.F. Stakes At Del Mar

Pretty N Cool returned to the races with a victory in the C.E.R.F. Stakes July 20

Talented Pretty N Cool, who began her career last summer at Del Mar where she won the Sorrento Stakes and then was runner-up to ultimate juvenile filly champion Songbird in the Del Mar Debutante, rallied powerfully in the stretch to win Wednesday’s featured $ 77,600 C.E.R.F. Stakes.

With Hall of Famer Mike Smith in the saddle, Pretty N Cool split horses entering the stretch to engage front-running 6-5 favored Shh She’s Ours, quickly disposed of that rival and cruised to the wire one and one-half lengths in front in 1:09.07 for the six furlongs.

Enchanting Lady, the winner’s stablemate from the barn of trainer Bob Baffert, closed stoutly to be runner-up, a half-length in front of the tiring Shh She’s Ours, with Dr. Fager’s Gal fourth in field of fillies and mares. Withdrawn was Everqueen.

Pretty N Cool, a daughter of Scat Daddy owned by Pegram, Watson and Weitman who was competing for the first time since last January 2, went postward as third choice and paid $ 8, $ 4.40 and $ 2.60. The victory was her fourth in eight starts and first money of $ 46,560 increased her earnings to $ 432,560.

Enchanting Lady was off at 2-1 and overcame a slow start to be a hard-charging second, returning $ 3.40 and $ 2.40. Shh She’s Ours, who set a fast pace before tiring in the stretch, paid $ 2.10 to show.
