The Del Mar Futurity is the West Coast unveiling of the future stars of the sport. It was first run in 1948 and now carries a purse of $300,000.

It has recently been run over Del Mar’s synthetic main track but with the track converting back to conventional dirt in 2015, the race will become an even more serious showcase of two-year-olds with Triple Crown potential.
