Preview: Some trainers have been struggling during the first two weeks of the meet and they will either get hot or continue to have problems. You make up your mind. The trainers struggling are Bobby Wayne Grayson 0-for-10, Mike Harrington 0-12, Doug O’Neill 1-12 and Peter Eurton 1-14.
Race 3: #1 Tooluckysupermoon (2-1)
This mare showed speed at Del Mar and finished fourth. Trainer Jorge Periban drops her a level and she has a third over the track in the past. Jockey Martin Pedroza keeps the mount. She is also coming out of race where the first two starters have won next time out.
Race 7: #2 Red Apple (10-1)
Throw out that last race against winners. This filly had trouble and just did no running. Trainer Juan Lopez puts apprentice E.Orozco on board and I look for this 2-year-old to show speed from the gate.
Race 8: #6 Runbrorun (2-1)
Jockey Iggy Puglisi and trainer Paul Aguirre team up here and they are 24% together at Los Alamitos the last two years and for whatever reason it seems to happen a lot in the last race of the day. Aguirre is 23% with horses on their third race off the layoff.
