Los Alamitos (plus a few others) opinions for Saturday, July 4

Race 1: #6 Surfside Tiara (5-2)

Interesting jockey dynamic here as Martin Garcia rides No. 1 for trainer Bob Baffert, yet he doesn’t ride Baffert’s horse in this race. Instead, he jumps on this first-timer for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer (28% with firsters). The sire Scat Daddy is 27% with firsters.


Race 9: #6 Lady Dash (12-1)

This filly broke her maiden over this track last year and should be plenty fit for trainer Rafael DeLeon while running in a route race last time. Hoping she is a horse for the course.



Race 8: #7 Postulation (10-1)

Trainer Dermot Weld sends this 3-year-old over from Ireland for Juddmonte Farms. Weld brings his own jockey in PJ Smullen.


Race 10: #10 Outstanding (6-1)

Sticking with another European as trainer Aiden O’Brien sends this daughter of Galileo over from Ireland. She has won two straight and jockey C O’Donoghue knows her from her last victory.



Race 4: #9 Live in Joy (4-1)

Trainer Efren Loza Jr. is doing his usual good job and winning at a high percentage. He is 35% with horses off a 46-90-day layoff and red-hot apprentice Tyler Gaffalione has the ride here.
