Kindergarten Futurity Night!

Hola Amigos,


Welcome to a Sunday evening of racing at Los Alamitos. The nine-race card feature is The Grade II Kindergarten Futurity with a purse of $268,000 for the two-year olds going as the last race on the card. The field is composed of two geldings, one colt and seven fillies in what should be a great betting race. It is a great card all around but i will focus on the late pick four because of the great prices we should get on the last leg. Lets get to it.

Race 6: This is a maiden claiming race for $16,000 for the two year olds. Three deep for me with #3 Overage who comes from a good win-early sire and has recent drill that fits with these. Also throwing in #5 My Lady Especial who comes from the hot barn of Juan Aleman. The good breeding is there and the 12.4 drill in latest shows some talent is there. Will not leave out the deserving favorite #6 Zesty who has two races under her belt against much tougher and now takes a drop in class. With the late scratch of #6, I will use the only other runner with experience #2 Trial of Faith who also is making a drop in class.

Race 7: My single in the sequence comes here by the way of #5 Red Hot Babydoll. This filly ran a good second in her debut when bet down to 2-1 off some solid works. Trainer Jaime Gomez wins at a 30% clip with second time starters. Big improvement expected in her second race.

Race 8: This is a good allowance field and i will go three deep. The impressive maiden-breaking effort of #2 A Mere Dynasty last out makes him a definite must use. He was hand ridden while pulling away late and now gets more distance to work which should be a benefit for him. Also using #5 Biringo who has shown big improvement in his last two starts and now goes with first time lasix into this race. He did beat a couple of these runners two starts back already. Closing my play will be #7 Sexy Perry who has had some troubled trips in her last few and now gets an outisde post while landing new rider Rodrigo Aceves.

Race 9: The Grade II Kindergarten Futurity closes the night. I will use three runners in this race. #4 Tres Racer who has done nothing wrong and is undefeated in two starts. She has talent, great gate speed and has broken on top in her two starts and still has potential to improve. Watch out. Also using #5 Revv Me Up who ran a huge race last out when improving dramatically in her second start. If this filly improves again like that and gets a better break, she could destroy this field with good late kick. Closing my play will be #9 Blackberry Czech who in two starts has one win and one second (beaten a nose by Tres Racer). This filly posted the fastest qualifying time last out when she broke straight and ran big.

I just added a "Followers" tab on the right of the blog underneath the twitter widget. Give me a follow on there if you enjoy my picks and analysis. Good Luck!
