Nominations will close Friday (June 14) for Del Mar's two premier stakes for 2-year-olds – the Grade I Del Mar Debutante for fillies and the Grade I Del Mar Futurity for all juveniles. The championship events will be renewed this summer on Saturday, August 3, (Debutante) and Labor Day Monday, September 2 (Futurity).
The nomination fee for each race is $300 with no additional or sustaining payments required. Both races are contested at seven furlongs and carry $300,000 purses.
