Horse Racing: Today at Los Alamitos, December 6

Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 mile, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, 2-year-olds

2 Litigation Road – Woke up with a good try in last, first for a price tag; Leandro Mora takes the blinkers off today.

5 Empire Cat – Any horse with Rafael Bejarano up gets a second look from me; he has a way of squeezing something extra with each mount.

Long Shot – 9 Desert Express

Race 2 – 5 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Claiming $8,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

7 Faith Proff – Big wins back to back and was claimed both times; is dropped in for $8K tonight, as big a red flag as you’ll find.

5 Miss American Pie – Speeddy sort has ground out three wins lifetime; was in a little too tough last time at Del Mar.

Long Shot – 3 Smil’n From Above

Race 3 – 6 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds

7 Echo Zulu – Claimed by underrated trainer Adam Kitchingman; won sharp in last, is well spotted to repeat that effort.

1 Sir Barclay – Reunited with Rafael Bejarano; last time he won was four races back with Bejarano up.

Long Shot – 6 Sudden Rumor

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

1 Arctic Code – Big favorite in one of the uglier races on the card; last time he ran at Los Al was in the E.B. Johnston stakes.

3 Feed the Fire – Has a little pop early but has been nearly eased late; suspect a group this poor could be a no passing zone race.

Long Shot – 5 Kalihi Sun

Race 5 – 1 mile, Purse $14,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

1 Second City – Claimed by Robertino Diodoro out of a solid second; he has a strong resume for improving off the claim.

3 Dysprosium – Taking a huge class drop to face much easier; need not be much under Tyler Baze to compete with these.

Long Shot – 9 Tama County

Race 6 – 1 mile, Purse $42,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

7 Live for Now – Has some early speed so I could see Tyler Baze sending hard early; did everything but win last time out.

1 Fascinating – Bob Baffert has an uncoupled entry so caveat emptor; this filly had no excuse last time, a perfect trip placing.

Long Shot – 3 Lady Bugatti

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles, $200,000 Bayakoa, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Yahilwa – Rail post will allow her to save all the ground; was a sharp winner of the Treasure Chest at Delta Downs in last.

3 Tiz Midnight – Can excuse the effort in a tough Breeders’ Cup Distaff field; she may try and butt heads with Yahilwas early on.

Long Shot – 2 Legacy

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $46,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Kafister – Won well off the claim by David Bernstein; is protected tonight, but has the back class to run another good one.

8 Hadfunlastnight – Did everything but win last time as a beaten favorite; makes his Los Alamitos debut in here.

Long Shot – 5 Door’s Open

Race 9 – 1 mile, Purse $17,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

9 Beach Fever – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; only horse to actually finish first in a race.

5 Badwater – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; need not be much to compete.

Long Shot – 6 Salt of the Earth

Best Bet – 1 Second City (race 5)

Los Alamitos Friday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 15/3/$14.60; Long Shots, 7/1/$28.60; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Los Alamitos Totals – 31/8/$42.60; Long Shots, 15/2/$45.80; Best Bets, 2/0/$0
