Horse racing, Los Alamitos

Los Alamitos thoroughbred picks for Friday, July 4

FIRST RACE: 1. Roper, 2. Notorious, 3. Colorado String. LONG SHOT: McSwiss.
ROPER (3-1) had some trouble in his debut at Santa Anita, breaking in and being steadied before eventually finishing fourth. The 2-year-old was vanned off but comes back here and jockey Fernando Perez sees fit to ride again for trainer Vann Belvoir. Inside posts might do well on this new layout.

FIFTH RACE: 1. Starlet O’Hara (best bet), 2. Ultimate Holiday, 3. Midnight Candy. LONG SHOT: Shh She’s Ours.
Trainer Bob Baffert is usually out to win first time when he starts a 2-year-old, no matter where it is. STARLET O’HARA (3-1), a filly, cost $100,000 at auction and the trainer is looking a quick return and not waiting for Del Mar, which will offer higher maiden special purses. Baffert puts the barn’s main rider, Martin Garcia, up.
