On Saturday at Del Mar, the featured race is the inaugural running of the $75,000 Let It Ride Stakes. Scheduled to be run at one mile on the turf, the race has attracted a field of nine three-year-olds.

Headlining the international field at odds of 7-2 is the California-bred, Awesome Return. Trained by Mike Puype, the sophomore son of Decarchy has won three of his eight starts, all of which came against restricted state-bred competition. He was last seen finishing third against open optional claiming company at Del Mar in July. Mike Smith will be aboard for the first time and they are scheduled to break from post position six.

Cabral trying to rebound after poor United States debut

Cabral has been installed as the second choice at 4-1 on the morning line for trainer Leonard Powell. A bay son of Henrythenavigator, he was ninth and last in his United States debut last time out in the Hill Prince (G3) at Belmont Park and will get Lasix for the first time. Prior to that, he had been on the board in six of his seven starts in France. Corey Nakatani has picked up the mount and they will break from post position seven.

Maibaby (IRE) ready to take on the boys in first local start

Also in the field at 5-1 on the morning line is Maibaby (IRE), a filly who will be taking on male rivals for her stateside debut. Making her first start for trainer Neil Drysdale, the dark bay daughter of Hurricane Run (IRE) has two wins from six starts to her credit. She has been training steadily at Santa Anita and will get the services of Kieren Fallon, a top European jockey who recently moved his tack to California, in the irons from post eight.
