Winter Derby Night

Hola Amigos,

We have a great night of racing ahead of us tonight here at Los Alamitos highlighted by the running of the $200,000 Grade I Winter Derby for 3-Year Olds going 400 yards. The late pick 4 looks attractive with some good fields so we are going to focus on that sequence tonight. Let's get to it.

Race 6: This maiden field of thoroughbreds looks wide open so we are going to press the ALL button and try to catch a price.

Race 7: I really do not see anyone beating #2 Tres of Linda coming off strong showings versus much tougher and classier fields. She has always shown ability and has not been off the board in her four lifetime starts. Single.

Race 8: The Grade I Winter Derby. We loved #10 Deniro last time out and he won with speed to spare to give us a nice 14/1 price. He is the fastest qualifier and is the deserving morning line favorite off of that effort. He draws the outside post once again and should fire right back. This time we are also going to use #7 Flying Rose who was making her first start in almost 6 months last time out and ran a good third. She is lightly raced and has shown a powerful closing kick down the lane and with a good break she could pull off an upset at 15/1 on the morning line.

Race 9: Two deep to close out our play. Top pick will be #2 Wave Over Phoebe who is coming off a win at a shorter distance while pulling away at the end while running against a 17-Mile per hour head wind. The added distance should not be a problem for this 3 year old daughter of Wave Carver. We will also use #4 Real and Spectacular who was much the best in a strong win two races back with this rider (Rodrigo Aceves) in a good final time. Dangerous.

$28 Ticket: All/2/7,10/2,4
