Horse racing, Los Alamitos

Los Alamitos thoroughbred picks for Friday, July 11

FIRST RACE: 1. Aerial Artist, 2. Time to Go Robo, 3. Electrolyte. LONG SHOT: Run Geocas Run.


SECOND RACE: 1. Night Badger, 2. Valentine Boy, 3. Valdirone. LONG SHOT: Bob Consultation.


THIRD RACE: 1. Saint Lemone (best bet), 2. Afleet Echo, 3. Ten in Excess. LONG SHOT: Todai Sing.

Northern California-based trainer John Martin claimed SAINT LEMONE, a 3-year-old filly, when she was pulled up and vanned off at Golden Gate Fields. She had a decent work the other day and Martin is 25% first off the claim.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Freaky Floyd, 2. Keegers, 3. Naomi’s Gift. LONG SHOT: Yahootee.


FIFTH RACE: 1. It’s Aine, 2. Puttybadshark, 3. Missy Marini. LONG SHOT: Tricky Liz.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Omar Little, 2. Midnight Mayhem, 3. Baby Blake. LONG SHOT: Tribal Desert.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Tacit Approval, 2. Gelila, 3. Sheza Eyeopener. LONG SHOT: Always an Angel.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Raja’s Rose, 2. Cocabella Myst, 3. Indian Proof. LONG SHOT: Copper Ore.

This filly has a race over the track and is moving up in class for trainer Mike Harrington, who has been struggling this year. However, apprentice jockey Drayden Van Dyke, who won five times the first week at Los Alamitos, takes the mount and it could make all the difference.
