New Year's Eve at Los Alamitos

After last night's opening night cut short, we have a full 10 race card scheduled for tonight. Special first post is set for 5pm for Saturdays starting with tonight. The early pick 4 consists of field sizes of 10,7,7,and 8 horse fields. Let's get to our pick 4 play for tonight:

Race 1: We are going two deep to start with #1 dropping in class to the bottom and hailing from strong connections and owner of los al Dr. Ed Allred. Also using #8 who I loved last time out off the layoff with a strong drill. He had some trouble out the gate last time and now switches to a more agressive rider out the gate and should improve second off the layoff. (1,8)

Race 2: #5 seems like the lone speed in this thoroughbred event and should control the pace. However, I also like #3 which is dropping and shows a bullet work since his last race and is making his second start at los alamitos. (3,5)

Race 3: I feel this is the most wide open of the pick four races and I am going 4 deep to cover my ticket. #1 comes off a stong win at longer distance and gets the inside draw. #3 is the deserving favorite off the strong runner up effort last time out. Were also throwing in #5 which come off two back to back wins which looked sharp. Confident class hike by strong connections. Closing out this race is #6 which made a stong closing kick to win last time out by a nose despite lugging in. (1,3,5,6)

Race 4: Finishing out our pick four with a duet. #1 comes second off a layoff and this slightly longer distance should fit this 3yo daughter of first down dash much better than her last shorter trip. We are also going to throw in #6 who closed with a rush last out after breaking slow to finish second beaten a neck. With a sharp break and an improve effort second off the layoff puts this gelding in the mix. (1,6)

Ticket recap ($32): 1,8/3,5/1,3,5,6/1,6
