Horse racing, Los Alamitos

Los Alamitos fall early opinions for Friday, Sept. 5

Del Mar is over and Los Alamitos is back for a few weeks before Santa Anita returns. Will try to do full cards on Los Al when I can and will definitely give opinions every day.

Race 3: #3 Papa Kade (8-1)

This son of Papa Clem ran into the very fast Wake Up Nick in his career debut and also got off to a slow start. Been away since then and drops into a maiden claimer here for trainer Doug O’Neill and jockey Felipe Martinez.

==

Race 6: #3 Regally Soul (9-2)

This Buzz horse won for us at 21-1 at the earlier Los Alamitos meet so we know he likes the track. He just missed last time out at Del Mar and just keeps improving. Jockey Fernando Perez reunites for trainer Walther Solis.

Trainer John Sadler gets jockey Corey Nakatani to ride DADDY D T (8-1), a son of Scat Daddy, in his first try on the grass. Offspring of Scat Daddy do well on the grass and going two turns. On top of that Sadler and Nakatani are a 46% combination the last two years at Del Mar.

==

SEVENTH RACE: 1. Cougar Country, 2. All Indians, 3. Fame and Power. LONG SHOT: Smuggler Union.

==

EIGHTH RACE: 1. Holiday Camp, 2. Skyway, 3. Henry’s Holiday. LONG SHOT: Iron Fist.

Trainer Bob Baffert owns the Del Mar Futurity and we’re going with HOLIDAY CAMP (9-2), a son of Street Boss, who cost $700,000 at auction. This colt comes out of a loss to the undefeated Wake Up Nick. He has been working steadily during the meet and has a bullet in his last effort. He also comes out of a key race.

==

NINTH RACE: 1. Aguacita, 2. Stormy Adieu, 3. Flat Footed Mama. LONG SHOT: Definitely Not.

==

10TH RACE: 1. Love In The Desert, 2. Pillow, 3. Vanlose Stairway. LONG SHOT: Taste Like Candy.
