Horse Racing: Today at Los Alamitos, December 4

Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $14,000, Claiming $8,000, Fillies and mares 3-year-olds and up

5 Adriatic Skye – To see Rafael Bejarano riding at Los Alamitos is a bit strange; while most top jocks passed on Fairplex, many ride here.

2 Full of Spice – Sliding down the claiming ladder to this bottom rung; has speed to sit a trip just off the early leaders.

Long Shot – 8 Shared Image

Race 2 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

8 L X Sunrise – With 6-of-9 seconds, her resume looks giant facing many slowpokes; ran races in Arcadia fast enough to beat these.

2 Cindys Secret – In a race this poor, often times the early lead is the best spot to be; can be a no passing zone affair.

Long Shot – 4 A B C Me Awesome

Race 3 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $42,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 2-year-olds

5 Kluszewski – Among my favorite names for a racehorse; Ted Klu was one of Cincinnati’s best sluggers many generations ago.

7 Sam Slick – Ran willingly in debut right here at Los Al; was 30/1 that day and outran thst, will be a much shorter price tonight.

Long Shot – 8 Matty’s Tribal

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Claiming $16,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Warren’s Wesley – Returned from a year layoff with a career best effort; if he just repeats that, he’ll have a puncher’s chance.

9 Hidden Zensation – Won’t see Kent Desormeaux much this meet, so Fernandeo Perez must do; he’s a good rider and this is a live horse.

Long Shot – 5 Znelle

Race 5 – 1 mile, Purse $21,000, Starter allowance $16,000, 3-year-olds and up

8 Street Serenade – If speed is holding than you need to use this guy; simple tactics of send for Tiago Pereira.

6 Persuasive Paul – Sat a dream trip in last to edge out to victory; has won twice on dirt so the transfer should work today.

Long Shot – 7 The Mad Hungarian

Race 6 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $42,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

1 Callback – Did a classic pop and stop in career debut; faced much tougher in that race at Santa Anita, second time Bob Baffert.

6 Ben’s Duchess – One of many dangerous looking FTS; this one from the John Sadler barn has been opening eyes of some clockers.

Long Shot – 7 Glory

Race 7 – 1 mile, Purse $46,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Toledo Eddie – His best races going long have come on turf; he has won 6-of-10 on dirt so it is a surface he excels over.

6 Wrightwood – Dead late closer will see a lot of early speed in here; a rapid pace could set him up for a flourishing finish.

Long Shot – 10 Got Even

Race 8 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds

1 Victoria Falls – Typical green debut, very slow early but quick late; job will be easier if he just breaks with the field.

5 Go On Darling – FTS from the Bob Baffert barn; I like his MSW better than the maiden claimers, but this is a slowpoke field.

Long Shot – 6 Powerful Girl

Best Bet – 1 Victoria Falls (race 8)

Del Mar Sunday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 17/8/$50.00; Long Shots, 9/1/$20.80; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Del Mar Final Totals – 246/63/$407.40; Long Shots, 125/20/$202.60; Best Bets, 15/2/$10.80
