Filly Faces Nine Geldings in Vandy's Flash Handicap

Racing fans pack the saddling paddock at Los Alamitos
A full-field of ten runners will sprint 400 yards in the running of the Vandy's Flash Handicap at Los Alamitos Race Course. The lone filly in the field, Feature Malinche, will break from post postion number 8 and is listed as the 5-to-2 morning line favorite.

In her most recent start, Feature Malinche earned a win in the G3 La Pacifica Handicap (restricted to fillies) while two starts back she missed winning the G2 La Primera Del Año Derby by a nose (also restricted to fillies).

Even though those last two races in Feature Malinche's career were restricted to fillies, she has faced, and defeated, plenty of males in her thirteen-race career.

In comparison to Thoroughbred racing, it is more common for fillies to race and win against males in Quarter Horse racing. The Vandy's Flash Handicap will go as race 9 tonight. Some of the top contenders include Mane Event (closed fast after a slow break to miss by a head in his last start), and High School Secrets (has three wins at this 400-yard distance and is a perfect 3-for-3 with Cesar De Alba riding).


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

My Plays:

Race 1 - $1 Pick Four:  1 / 3 / 1,3,4,5,6 / 1,4,5,8 = $20

Race 6 - $1 Pick Four:  2 / 3,4 / 4,5,7 / 1,3,6,7,8 = $30

Let's get lucky!

I watch horses run around.
