Saturday: Grade I $500,000 Los Alamitos Futurity

The Grade I $500,000 Los Alamitos Futurity highlights the closing weekend of the ignaugural winter thoroughbred meet at Los Al. Although the field is only a compact group of five, it attracted the buzz horse of the moment: Dortmund.

Other than traffic trouble or a major stumble, it's tough to imagine Dortmund getting beat. He looks like a future superstar.

Today's Best Bet
Race 5
#5 Baccelo
Morning Line Odds: 4-1
I like that he's making his second start off the layoff and is switching back to a dirt surface. He's been training locally over this Los Al surface and there seems to be enough speed in this race to set up his off-the-pace kick.

Full-card Selections:

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

Sunday is closing day of the thoroughbred meet at Los Alamitos and then the circuit moves to Santa Anita Park for their opening day on December 26.

The year-round 2013-2014 Los Alamitos Quarter Horse evening meet also concludes on Sunday and then a new 2014-2015 Quarter Horse meet begins on December 26 with a first post of 7pm.

I watch horses run around.
