Governor's Cup Futurity Trials Night

Hola amigos,

It is the start of the racing week at Los Alamitos with a friday card that features six trials to the Governor's Cup Futurity. Fifty-three two-year olds bred in California will race in six trials to earn a spot as one of the ten fastest qualifiers that will return for the final. The entire card looks competitive and that should provide for a fun night of handicapping and placing some wagers on what looks to be a night for good payouts. The trials go as the last six races on the card which covers the pick six (small carryover tonight) and the late pick four. Let's get to the plays.

Race 1:  1-7-3
#1 Truly Censored, almost got up for the win last out. Rail no problem. The one to deny.
#7 Royal Regard, Goes for new barn, nice 12.2 drill since last seen, drops out of futurity.
#3 Bingo, well-bred colt has two decent efforts against good fields. Can improve.

Race 2:  2-3-4
#2 Price the Vice, closed ground late in last race. Slightly longer distance will help.
#3 Bolt Lightly, big drop here after a troubled debut. Decent works before debut. Only making second start.
#4 Snowlicious, small drop and extra distance will benefit to her T-Bred breeding for late kick.

Race 3:  6-4-7
#6 Better Then Ever, recovered to run a good third after slow start. Gets R. Aceves to ride.
#4 Awise Secret, First time starter shows nice 12.1 work for barn that does not work them fast. Good sire.
#7 Saving Shirley, drops from much tougher competition for Jones. Outside post might help her break good.

Race 4:  6-4-2
#6 Madam Prez, powerful win last out. Nice bullet 21.2 drill since last seen. Can only improve more.
#4 Splendiferous Diva, nice win, resume mirrors #6.  Barn knows how to keep them sharp. Tough to ignore.
#2 I Go Out Walkin, has good gate speed can steal race is she breaks good and avoids trouble.

Race 5:  4-1-9
#4 Chick On First, Filly has royal breeding and is looking for break out effort. I have a feeling.
#1 Don Loncho, good win last out to get up after stumbling. Needs alert break. Dangerous.
#9 Swindler, Ed Allred homebred ran good against tougher last out. Can get a jump on the field.

Race 6:  5-9-7
#5 Dawn of a New Day, good debut (3rd). Makes 2nd start. Trainer knows how to get them ready to peak.
#6 Just Might Go, nice win when last seen but slow work since then. Ability is there. Good gate speed.
#7 Got No Secrets, put it all together in big win last out but had little competition in that field.

Race 7:  6-3-7
#6 Wears the Pants, big win last out when NOT asked. Filly has much left in tank. Look for big effort.
#3 Remembering Spence, good win in stakes last out. Needs gate speed against this field. Talented.
#7 Secretly Hot, good time in win last out. Rider was asking late to keep going. Can improve in tough field.

Race 8:  8-1-6
#8 Henoshersecret, class of field. Did not show fight late last out when beaten head, but easier field here.
#1 Living Your Dreams, good win last out. Bred to like this longer distance. Visscher homebred.
#6 Shifty, responded with good second with class drop. Small layoff, good drill, can upset this field.

Race 9:  3-1-5
#3 Our Secret Queen, breakout maiden win last out. Good final time. Build on effort to win.
#1 Whittier High, has always broken on top in three lifetime starts. Threat to steal from rail.
#5 Clever Me, has talent but needs gate speed. Decent time when third last out. Is improving.

My Plays:

$1 Early Pick Four (Races 1-4)($16):  1,2,3,7 / 2,3 / 4,6 / 6

$2 Pick Six (Races 4-9)($16):  6 / 4 / 5,9 / 3,6 / 8 / 1,3

$1 Late Pick Four (Races 6-9)($32):  5,7,8,9 / 6 / 1,3,6,8 / 1,3

Good Luck!
I watch horses run around.
