LOS ALAMITOS TB

SANTA ANITA

AT EASE: We will see this maiden running at Santa Anita on the grass since Los Al does not have a grass course. He was best in here but was bumped and steadied hard, forced out nearing the first turn and had to make a four-wide run. Managed to get to the front but was run down by the 7/5 chalk. He will make no mistakes at Santa Anita next time out going long on the grass. $$$$$

JOURNEY ON: Another you will see at Santa Anita on the grass. This filly looked to have a big shot in this mile turf race at almost 7/1 but when she looked to be launching a winning move had to wait off heels in midstretch and that cost her dearly. She did get up for the show dough in what was a nice try.

JUSTIN SQUARED/ARABIAN LEOPARD: Baffert sent two runners to post in this 2yo straight maiden race, Justin at 60-cents-on-the-dollar, Leopard at 3/1. Justin went wire to wire winning by five lengths while under a long tight hold by Pedroza. Leopard was bumped and jostled between horses at the start, which cost him. Both will be very tough right back.

TEXAS RYANO: Was squeezed at the start but settled nicely while down on the inside. He came out leaving the second turn to make his run and cruised on home to an easy win. This one is looking very good for Carla Gaines and seems on his way to stakes or handicap company next time out.

UNTOUCHABLE U: First time starter for trainer Eddie Truman took some action in this 6.5 furlong race. He tracked the leaders while outside on the bend and came three wide into the stretch. Was steadied when crowded behind the winner approaching midstretch, but still held good to finish a game third. He will be a good single next time out. $$$
