Las Damas Handicap (GIII)

Fillies and Mares highlight the Sunday card at Los Alamitos Race Course in the running of the Las Damas Handicap. This Grade III event (Race 9) will have a talented field of ten that will sprint 400 yards down the stretch. Separate Thoughts is the deserving 5-to-2 favorite on Ed Burgart's morning line, she will break from post position number 4.

Another mare that will take some play is Getit Together who comes out of a fast allowance win back in September. She has had trouble at the gate in past efforts but if she behaves and breaks good from the rail post, the others might be running for second.

Trainer Paul Jones has two contenders in the race but i think the one to keep an eye on is Check N Fetch. Her last race is a throw out and her win two starts back was a sharp one. This mare has a good late kick and should have no problem with the distance. She is only making her fourth start for the champion trainer and he knows how to get them ready for the big ones. Watch out.

I will once again miss out on the early part of the card but will be just in time for second half. Keep an eye out on my twitter feed @LosPonies for some selections on the earlier part of the card in case i get to tune in a little early.

Next weekend is another big week at Los Alamitos  where the last remaining berths to the Champion of Champions will be decided with the running of the Z Wayne Griffin trials. In addition, the trials to the richest annual race in California, The Two Million Futurity, will also take place next weekend. Get ready for some outstanding racing and I will see you back here for that. Let's take a look at tonight's late pick four.

Race 6:  6-3-4
Race 7:  1-2-3
Race 8:  6-2-4
Race 9:  1-4-9

My Play:

Race 6:  $1 Late Pick Four ($24):  1,3,4,6 / 1 / 2,6 / 1,4,9

Good Luck!

I watch horses run around.
