TODAY AT LOS ALAMITOS by Richard Eng

Post Time 2 p.m.

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

3 Life On Riviera – FTS from top baby barn in Peter Miller; key vote comes from Rafael Bejarano riding.

2 Every May – Typical green debut, slow early, fast late; he outran his 23/1 odds but still has plenty of room to improve.

Long Shot – 1 Star Actor

Race 2 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $12,000, Claiming $6,250, 3-year-olds and up

10 Valdirone – Sliding down the claiming ladder to this career low class; need not be much to beat this group.

2 Fly High – Been away 9-months since graduating at Santa Anita; watch the tote board for additional clues.

Long Shot – 1 Monastic

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

5 Full Dancer – Speedy sort exits the turf at Del Mar for this; class drop will help plus he’s 6-of-8 wins on dirt.

2 Celebrity Status – Even though the race condition is the same, he faced tougher at Del Mar; will be interesting to watch.

Long Shot – 1 Song to You

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $42,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

3 Sandy?s Song ? Beaten favorite will takes the blinkers off tonight; Cody Autrey left this maiden behind from the Del Mar meet.

5 Satin Cinnamon ? Ran well for a price tag in debut; was a green debut, slow early, fast late.

Long Shot ? 7 Natalie?s Wonder

Race 5 – 1 1/16th miles, $75,000 Las Madrinas, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 My Happy Face ? Has come a long way since her grade 1 days back east; still she has ability and could regain a semblance of past form.

4 Irish Prescence ? Like the parking lot post in Los Alamitos sprints; should be able to stalk the early speed and challenge late.

Long Shot ? 3 Legacy

Race 6 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Takeit Tothe Limit ? Speedball has folded up in the final yards of last two tries; will not face an easier test than this the rest of the year.

9 Deer Decarchy ? Always root for the team of Iggy Puglisi and Paul Aguirre; they try hard every time they team up.

Long Shot ? 8 Royal Stack

Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds and up

7 W. Giles ? Draw a line thru last where he crumbled in the final yards; his race two back, if repeated, would beat these.

4 Tribal Smoke ? Would be more confident if Jeff Mullins were still training; has plenty of back class to upset this group.

Long Shot ? 10 Red Man Run

Race 8 – 1 mile, Purse $17,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

9 Magic Number ? Drayden Van Dyke has a chance for the title, but he needs a big day today; this one is raised off the claim by Brian Koriner.

10 Miss Kit Kat ? Taking a huge class drop to face this motley crew; underrated rider Tiago Pereira can get them to run.

2 Acategoryfivestorm ? Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; should show more gumption in this soft spot.
