Straight Fire earns start in Del Mar Futurity


DEL MAR, Calif. – Straight Fire crushed maidens on Saturday, underscoring the quality of the fastest 2-year-old race of the year in the country, which came when he finished second to Chasing Aces here on July 17. Chasing Aces is sitting out the Best Pal Stakes on Saturday to await the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity on Sept. 5, and that’s where Straight Fire is headed, too.
