The Del Mar racetrack crowned its fifth Miss Cougar Del Mar on July 26: Debra Olson from Eureka, Calif.

Olson was chosen by a panel of judges from five finalists and 12 total nominees. She presented the trophy to Joe Talamo — the winner of the Cougar II Handicap (bottom)  — in the Winner’s Circle. Judges included Marlo Jordan from MissCougarLife.com; Mighty 1090 and U-T TV personality Scott Kaplan; and Billy Koch, general manager of Little Red Feather Racing.

The Miss Cougar Del Mar contest is named for the Cougar II Handicap – Del Mar’s longest stakes race.

Women at least 35 years of age were encouraged to submit their best cougar photo with a one-sentence explanation as to why they should be crowned Miss Cougar Del Mar 2013; third parties were also allowed to nominate their cougar friends.

Online voting determined the five finalists, and a panel of local celebrity judges selected the winner.
