Racing! Looking forward to today’s Los Alamitos Derby

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we get to a weekend where Delaware and Indiana have the big races.

My two favorite races during all the Los Alamitos thoroughbred seasons are the Los Alamitos Futurity in December and the Los Alamitos Derby in July.

The Futurity is all about the future and the Triple Crown run. The past five winners have been McKinzie, Mastery, Mor Spirit, Dortmund and Shared Belief, who won at Hollywood Park. They were all something special or in McKinzie’s case, still hoping to be special.

The Derby, which is being run today at Los Alamitos, is generally for late developing 3-year-olds that missed the Triple Crown races. Past winners include West Coast, Accelerate and Shared Belief. In the latest NTRA poll for top horse, Accelerate is second and West Coast is third, both behind Justify.

It’s difficult to say if greatness will emerge from Saturday’s $150,000 race, which will be the eighth at about 4:30 p.m. The favorite is Ax Man, who was high in trainer Bob Baffert’s barn but a lackluster performance in the San Vicente derailed any Triple Crown run. He ran great in the Sir Barton Stakes at Pimlico winning by 6 ¾ lengths. He was third in his last race, the Matt Winn Stakes at Belmont. Drayden Van Dyke will be in the saddle.

The second favorite is Blended Citizen for trainer Doug O’Neill. Blended Citizen was first up if there was a late scratch in the Kentucky Derby, but it ended up all he got for his trip to Churchill Downs was frequent flier miles. His big wins came in the Jeff Ruby at Turfway and the Peter Pan at Belmont. His last race was a disappointing ninth in the Belmont Stakes. Kyle Frey is the jockey.

The 1 1/8-mile race has only five entrants and Los Alamitos has decided not to have show betting. The other three horses are Draft Pick (3-1), Once On Whiskey (6-1) and King Cause (15-1).

Los Alamitos thoroughbred review

The feature on Friday was a $40,000 maiden special weight, won by Chickatini. The filly led the entire mile, winning by 1 ¼ lengths. What’s interesting is that jockey Evin Roman lost his whip near the wire. In the first race he also lost his whip, but he finished third in that race. Roman won three races on Friday.

Chickatini paid $9.00, $3.40 and $2.40. Convince was second and She Fox was third. It was Chickatini’s seventh lifetime race.

Los Alamitos thoroughbred preview

We’ve told you about the big race, the Los Alamitos Derby above. As for the rest of the card, there are nine races starting at 1 p.m. Seven of the nine races are claimers, but the field sizes are pretty decent, except for the feature. Six of the races are for fillies and mares.

Here are the field sizes, in order: 6, 9, 8, 10, 6, 10, 10, 5, 10.

Sunday will be the final day of the meeting with mandatory payouts on all the rollover bets.

Jose Contreras LRC pick of the day

EIGHTH RACE: No.1 Draft Pick (3-1)

He looked strong powering home in the Grade 3 Affirmed while notching his second consecutive win. He’s been steadily improving and comes into this race with nothing but route races under his belt. He has enough tactical speed to stay in good position and the inside draw should allow him to save all the ground. The key to the race is that I think King Cause will pressure Ax Man and if that happens I think it sets up perfectly for Draft Pick to mow them down the long stretch.

Friday’s result: Nazareth ran a nice stalking trip but when she was about a furlong from the finish, rider Evin Roman lost his whip. She was still able to get third.

Jose Contreras is an excellent handicapper and well known on social media and familiar to racing fans watching on TVG. You can follow him on twitter at @losponies or check him out at his website.

Ed Burgart’s LA play of the day

FOURTH RACE: No. 6 Jess Curlin (3-1)

This lightly-raced gelding gets a major jockey upgrade from Cesar Franco to Eduardo Nicasio after rallying for second as the heavy favorite in last trial outing vs. Ed Burke Million qualifier Paddy Riley. He draws next to heavily-favored Striver, who seems vulnerable while making her sixth start this year and fourth trip postward in seven weeks.

FROM THE DISTANCE sped to the early lead, set the pace a bit off the rail and held on gamely under urging. TWISTED ROAD close up stalking the pace three deep, drifted out some into the stretch and just held second. LION COMMAND hesitated to be away behind the field, moved up inside leaving the backstretch, came out on the turn and four wide into the stretch and just missed the place. BELOVED HOLIDAY chased a bit off the rail, split horses into the stretch and lacked the needed late kick. DERBY FACTOR settled off the rail then outside a rival into the turn, came four wide into the stretch and improved position. HARPER'S GEM hopped some at the start, stalked outside then three deep on the turn and into the stretch and lacked a rally. REBEL ON THE RUN stalked the pace between horses on the backstretch and turn, drifted to the inside in the stretch and weakened. RUFF HOUSE angled in and saved ground stalking the pace throughout and weakened in the drive. ONE TRUE KING chased a bit off the rail then inside leaving the turn, came out a bit in the stretch and also weakened.
