The Hollywood Futurity could hardly be converted into the Del Mar/Hollywood Futurity, because Del Mar already has its own Futurity, but there doesnt seem to be a racing maxim that prevents a track from being awash in futurities, as long as the names dont confuse the public. If Del Mar adopts the Hollywood Futurity, as it might like to, Del Mar will figure out the niceties. Just one caveat: Dont trust Santa Anita with the name game. Since Santa Anita dropped the Oak Tree Racing Association as a tenant in 2010, it has unilaterally added four decades of Oak Tree history to its own, and last year, when Santa Anita began renaming Oak Tree races, it seemed to run out of good names early on.
