Horse racing, Los Alamitos

Los Alamitos Race Course for Thursday, Dec. 15

Preview: Not the best of cards with three maiden claiming events but that’s what you get this time of the year with no grass racing. New jockey alert: Luis Contreras, who once upon a time rode in Southern California, is back from Woodbine, where he finished second in the riding standings to Patrick Husbands. Don’t know if he’s staying for the winter or on a busman’s holiday. The bombs have been flying the first week of the meet so we will see what happens this week.

Race 1: #4 Holidayincambodia (6-1)
I know friend Terry Turrell had this horse down last week before he was scratched (the horse not Terry). This filly won at this distance over the track in September and gets similar conditions here.

Race 5: #10 Love Winning (20-1)
We’ve all seen the bombs going off in the first week of the meet so why not take a shot here? This filly is going two turns for the first time and is coming out of a key race that has produced three next out winners. Trainer Vann Belvoir puts blinkers on today.

Race 7: #6 Where Y’at Joe Joe (6-1)
Trainer Dean Pederson is 25% first off the claim and 23% with horses second off the layoff. There is a good work showing after the claim and Jamie Theriot keeps the mount.
