GI Southern California Derby & $54,345 Pick Six Carryover

The final day of the meet at Los Alamitos Race Course is upon us. The GI Southern California Derby will close out the card with 3-year-olds going 400 yards. The fastest qualifier and deserving favorite #4 Check My Thoughts will be the one to deny in the last Grade I event of the year here at Los Alamitos.

Today also marks the last of the daylight cards with a first post set for 2pm pacific.

While racing is set to resume next weekend, there is a mandatory payout in the pick six because of the end of the 2011-2012 calendar meet. That means that the $54,345 that are sitting in the carryover pot plus all the of the new money that gets bet in will be paid out. Take a shot!

While I always share photos and videos of Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing, many people have never experienced the sights and sounds of Quarter Horses breaking from the gate. Thoroughbreds tend to take a few strides out of the gate to settle into pace while Quarter Horses are speed specialists. Here is a video I shot yesterday at Los Alamitos. Enjoy!

Race 1:  7-9-10
Race 2:  3-8-2
