Trials to GI $232,650 Los Alamitos Winter Derby

A total of 42 runners will sprint 400 yards in six trials (last six races on the card) in search of being one of the top ten fastest qualifiers to the GI $232,650 Winter Derby final.

Without a doubt the most high-profile runner in these trials is The August Heat who finish second in last year's $2Million Futurity by a nose. He will go in tonight's fifth race.

Another runner that i am looking forward to seeing in action is Without Fault who is 2-for-2 in her career. In her last allowance triumph, she won despite breaking through the gate prior to the start of the race. The daughter of TR Dasher has much room for upside and shows a 12.0 workout leading up to this race. She will break from post #2 in race number seven.

There is plenty of room for improvement for all of these newly turned 3-year-olds and I would not be surprised to see a few upsets on tonight's card. Let's get to it.

Race 1:  7-6-2
Race 2:  6-1-5
Race 3:  5-6-1
Race 4:  7-4-1
Race 5:  6-5-7
Race 6:  1-6-2
Race 7:  2-5-6
Race 8:  2-7-1
Race 9:  1-2-5

My Plays:

Race 1 - $1 Early Pick Four ($24):  7 / 1,6 / 5,6 / 1,2,4,5,6,7

Race 6 - $1 Late Pick Four ($28):  1 / 2 / All / 1,2,4,5

Good Luck!
I watch horses run around.
