3 One More Roll – Trainer Charlie Treece has won a lot of races at Los Alamitos; most are of the cheaper kind, but this one fits.

2 Dr. Vincentstein – Facing winners for the first time after a gutsy graduation; has shown good early speed to be well placed.

Long Shot – 8 Manila customer

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $17,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds and up

2 Fonz – Did everything but win last time in a dead game effort; like that Rafael Bejarano remains loyal to the cause.

Race 4 – 5 furlongs, Purse $14,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

11 Anillo – Strong contender if he can draw in off the also eligible list; speed to lead and also takes a big class drop.

Race 6 – 1 mile, Purse $30,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 2-year-olds

3 Guy Code – Goncalino Almeida took the blinkers off and he exploded with a big win; stretching out should only help hi early speed.

Long Shot – 6 Dynamite Ride

Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $46,000, Optional claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Mahlo Princess – She won at this level five races ago, and at a higher level four races back; has good tactical speed.

3 Acceptance – After two straight wins, he is clearly a talented colt; the question now is sustaining his run around 2-turns.
