LOS ALAMITOS TB
We start this very soft card off with a $20k maiden race for fillies and mares. No. 4 Bijoux gets her first taste of dirt as she gets off the grass, drops in class and turns back to a sprint as Sadler pulls all the punches trying to get the maiden breaker. No. 5 Appealing Lady looks the main danger. 4-5
No. 2 Ossetra went wire-to-wire at first asking for Baffert and will be very tough in here. No. 4 Frac Candy has gotten real good since the voided claim and will be the main danger to Ossetra. 2+4
No. 3 Skye Diamonds ran good in her one and only start at Santa Anita and now gets the bug boy David Lopez in the irons. No. 5 Casino Fever also ran good in her one start and she will keep Skye Diamonds honest on the front end, these two could go wire-to-wire together. 3-5
No. 1 Cowtownmary won in his only start here when breaking his maiden, he will appreciate the drop in class. No. 2 Swiss Chesse will try and run Mary down. 1-2
2yo maidens travel a flat mile and Bob Baffert has the wagons circled in this race as he sends out three of the 7 runners starting with No. 2 Let’s Meet in Rio who had a tough trip last out. No. 6 Coach Q who gets off the grass and back with maidens and No. 7 Uninvited who gets Bafferts go to rider Martin Garcia.
No. 2 Anda took action in his one and only start but broke slow and did not rally, look for better today. No. 4 Upbeat Tempo has had his chances but finds a field he can beat and did run good in his one try at this level last out and he has good connections. 2-4
No. 1 Runningwiththelute loves this track as both of her wins came here along with three seconds from her five starts on this course. No. 5 Privileged One is on a win every other race pattern and this is her win race. 1-5
THE $100K SOVIET PROBLEM
2yo fillies go a flat mile, No. 5 Patriotic Diamond has run all good races in her four starts including a nice win last out, Mike Smith gets the call today. No. 7 Just Google Me has run here two times and won both starts. 5-7
$30k 2yo maiden claimers go 5-1/2 furlongs, No. 4 Small Town Shuffle is the one to beat, his speed will play well with this crew. No. 7 Five Star Jack also has good early speed and they look one two. 4-7
No. 4 Andale drops trying to score and finds very little to beat. No. 5 Silver Bounce Back gets his second start here and second at the distance off a good try last out. 4-5
No. 1 Autumn Blitz has run four times and all at different tracks, he gets his first start on the synthetic. No. 2 Huya exits a key race from Emerald Downs. No. 4 He’s a Tiger won here at odds on in his one start.
No. 1 Kluszewski drops in class, gets off the grass and back to a sprint, it all adds up to a trip to the winners circle. No. 7 Fabber lost by a nostril at this level last out. 1-7
Exacta box 1-7 and win and place 1
No. 3 Steve Bilko looks to be closing in on the maiden breaker, he gets Gonzo today. No. 6 Seeking a Mystery drops in this his second start as he looks for his level. No. 7 Our Maserati is the only first timer in the race and he beds down in a top barn. 3-6-7
THE $75K GOLD RUSH STAKES FOR 2YO
No. 1 Allaboutaction won by 9 lengths when going off at .70 cents on the dollar in his first start here, he will be short again and the one to beat. It would be fitting if No. 4 Gold Rush Dancer won the Gold Rush and he has a big shot. 1-4
No. 1 Arigato is trained by the superhot Jonathan Wong who is winning at a 46% rate and has hit the board with 11 of his 13 starters here. No. 3 Okie Blackbird ran right behind Arigato last time out. 1-3
No. 3 Patsy G and Me just missed by a dwindling neck here in her last start, she has a big last work for this. No. 7 Marynetta is a win machine owning 9 wins here at the Gate. 3-7
No. 5 Glamsquad has hit the board in all five of her starts here, she gets Baze today. No. 6 Lakia beat the Glamsquad last time out. No. 8 Seaward Cottage is in from Del Mar and gets her first start off the Tim McCanna claim. 5-6-8
No. 6 Stone Hot just missed by a nostril here last out and now gets Baze sticking around to ride this cheap claimer for John Martin. No. 10 Kimnjet is trained by Wong. 6-10
