Mi Sueno rolls by 6 1/2 in Sorrento


DEL MAR, Calif. - Mi Sueno, second in two high-class maiden races at Hollywood Park earlier this summer, erased those disappointments with an easy win in Friday's $150,000 Sorrento Stakes at Del Mar.

Ridden by Michael Baze, Mi Sueno ($18.60) won by 6 1/2 lengths over 3-5 favorite Necessary Evil, rallying from the back of the field. Well Deserved, who set an early pace of 22.19 and 45.07 seconds, faded in the final furlong but held third in the field of eight 2-year-old fillies.

Mi Sueno was timed in 1:16.40.

"She worked phenomenally the last two times," Baze said. "The race worked out perfectly. I was just waiting. You need to be quiet and real patient with her. She gets real fussy."

Owned by Southern Equine Racing and trained by Eric Guillot, Mi Sueno was purchased as a weanling at Keeneland for $1.7 million in November 2007. She earned $90,000 for the win in the Grade 3 Sorrento.

Guillot said after the race that he is considering the Grade 1 Darley Debutante going seven furlongs at Del Mar for Mi Sueno's next start, on Sept. 5. His long-range goal is the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies at Santa Anita in November.
