$56,000 Claiming Futurity Trials and $6,746 Pick Six Carryover

Hola Amigos,

It is a good Sunday Card of racing at Los Alamitos with what should be a great betting card with solid fields. The evening is highlighted by trials for the Claiming Futurity, races 7 and 8, where seventeen entrants will race for final ten spots in the $56,000 final. Today's card also features a $6,746 pick six carryover which is worth taking a shot at. Good pools expected in the pick fours today with full fields and an early post of 5:40 pm. Do not get shut out.

Race 1: This is a bottom level of thoroughbred maidens going four and one half furlongs and i will go two deep with #3 Toughy (top pick) who comes back to los alamitos after a even effort at turf paradise. He ran a good effort in his effort here locally two starts ago when making up ground in sealed wet track (speed favoring). Today he adds the blinkers and can show more speed against this field. Also using #6 Emerald Assests who is making his second start at los al and comes first off the claim for Jim Hanson. He is set to improve from his layoff and his third place finish last out.

Race 2: Two deep for me in this race with #3 Tac Dirty To Me (top pick) who was very fractious at the gate last out and getting bumped in a troubled trip. A good break is all he needs to win this race. Cannot leave out #4 Time after Time who broke through the gate last out in her fourth place effort. She broke on top but breaking through the gate cost her a better effort. Watch for a good run this time.

Race 3: This is a good solid field of straight maidens. I will go three deep in this field. Using #4 Hot Little Secret who has the breeding and two good efforts. A slight improvement and trouble-free break might be all this runner needs to win. #5 Just Might Go (top pick) is the stable mate of #4 and has a good second and third place in two starts. I like the talent, but not sold with the way she weakened last out when breaking on top. Also throwing in #6 Better Then Ever who comes from turf paradise off some good efforts and now joins a barn that wins at 22% with new acquisitions. Trainer-jockey combo hitting at a healthy 30%. Dangerous.

Race 4: This race concludes the early pick four and starts the pick six. I will single in this leg with #9 Exactly Like You. This filly has some good past class that should beat this field. She got nosed out for the win last out after a troubled trip where she was fractious and she lugged in and bumped out the gate. She is making her third start off a layoff and should be primed to crush.

Race 5: You could go many different ways in this field and i will use three runners. I will use the two Cody Joiner (always spots his horses great) #1 Timefor Seperatecash (big drop in class and clipped heels last out) and #5 Eck Hardy (top pick, first time for a claiming tag and has good efforts). Cannot leave out the deserving favorite #6 A Mere Lady who has much gate speed and can steal the race at the start from this outside post.

Race 6: Dr. Ed Allred has two homebreds in this field with different trainers and the inside and outside posts and both are the morning line favorites (#1 & #6). I will single #1 Buy Buy who drops from a tough futurity trial and has faced the talented The Cartel Straw in her last two starts. Much easier field today and any improvement forward should take this filly to the winner circle.

Race 7: Two deep for me in this race. Using #2 Iba Dream Away who is owned and trained by Paul Jones and is by champion Ocean Runaway. The breeding is nice and the educated debut effort gives her some experience. She did have some decent works leading up to her debut last out. My top pick will be #8 Cool Sunshine Miss who was bet down heavily last out after showing some spark in her work outs before her debut. She got slightly bumped out the gate and did not have real comfortable trip. The outside post can benefit her and she might pull the upset at a big price for very low profile connections.

Race 8: I will use two runners in this second trial for the Claiming Futurity. #3 Check the Dasher (top pick) had a good debut effort when third in a race where she veered in and out throughout the race when finishing third. I think she will improve in bunches and her gate speed might have her in front at the break. I have to use #7 Bullet in The Gun who gave it a good try in his debut two start ago when finishing a good fourth. He had a rough trip last out in a futurity trial and gets a class relief for his third start.

Race 9: The closing race of the night seems like a two horse race for me with #3 Shifty (top pick) who drops in class and has good works and good numbers in his two efforts and #5 Lets Shake On It who also takes a class drop from much tougher competition and her numbers make her a top contender.

$1 Early Pick Four Race One ($12): 3,6 / 3,4 / 4,5,6 / 9

$2 Pick Six Race Four ($48): 9 / 1,5,6 / 1 / 2,8 / 3,7 / 3,5

$1 Late Pick Four ($8): 1 / 2,8 / 3,7 / 3,5

Good Luck!
I watch horses run around.
