Vessels Maturity Trials

Los Alamitos Race Course
Tonight's card at Los Alamitos Race Course features two trials, races 8 & 9, where eighteen runners will sprint 400-yards in search of being one of the ten fastest qualifiers that will return in the GI $167,900 Vessels Maturity final on July 7.

In addition to Grade I honors, the winner of the Vessels Maturity will also earn a berth to the presigious GI $750,000 Champion of Champions. The Champion Of Champions is one of the premier races for older quarter horses and the winner is usually in the mix for AQHA championship honors. This year's edition of the Champion of Champions will be run on December 14.

Tonight's Best Bets:

Race 2 - #3 I Me Mine (3-1 odds). This filly was off slow in her debut and finished fifth in a field of six. Today she returns with that outing under he belt and picks up the services of Ramon Sanchez. She had posted a 12.3 bullet work before her troubled debut and I have a feeling she will run a much improved effort today.

Race 8 - #3 Fols Jesse (7-2 odds). We last seen Fols Jesse losing the Katella Handicap by a head back in March and today he shows up to this trial with a nice 18.1 workout. His main weapon is his gate speed and I like that he is drawn to the outside of his two main rivals. He is a consistent horse and I think this will be his opportunity to put up a big performance.


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

My Plays:

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

Race 6 - $1 Pick Four:  1,2,5,6 / 2,3,4,5 / 3 / 1,6,7 = $48

Let's get it!

I watch horses run around.
