About the Race and Track

The $100,000 Bertrando Stakes kicks off a new era in racing in Southern California Thursday and online sports betting site players should truly enjoy the action at Los Alamitos this year. This summer meet will be short and sweet but racing will return in the winter for 3 weeks of photo finishes.

Ten older horse have entered the mile Bertrando for California-breds and there is a little for every appetite.

As far as the track is concerned, you will not want to be hung wide post-position wise in route races since there is a quick run to the first turn.

Fair Grounds previously had the longest homestretch in the states but Los Alamitos now has a 1,380 foot stretch, over 30 feet longer than Fair Grounds. The surface is soft and should prove kind to the horses. And, as usual, look for speed to be very big on a day-to-day basis.

A Longshot With Some Value: Spirit Rules

Spirit Rules is proven fresh, has trained like the proverbial Swiss clock and should be rolling hard from the get go. He just may get brave.

The Pick: Storm Fighter

Spirit Rules just matched his career best 93 Beyer Speed Figure beating optional claimers. He has the speed to flee the fence and should be forwardly placed from the sound of the bell.

Soi Phet was Grade 1 placed last year so the credentials are there. He was fully extended last time to beat starter rivals by a nose.

Rousing Sermon won a $100,000 stakes last year and he had a valid excuse last time as he was making his turf debut.

Leaving New York has the edge of training at Los Alamitos but he has not raced since 2012. He has some semblance of speed, but there are others with designs on the lead.

Full Dancer has won 11 of 25 starts in his career and he has worked at Santa Anita since shipping from Churchill Downs. He is a bit on the cheap side as he was claimed for just $5,000 in March.

Rock Me Baby needed his last badly and should appreciate the added real estate today while Tribal Jewel was over 4 lengths clear last time in a $75,000 claimer but he should sit a nice stalk and pounce type of a trip.

Tiz a Minister just posted a bullet work locally last Sunday but he is speed challenged. He can be his own worst enemy since he dawdles out of the gate.

Storm Fighter pressed and faded last time but the race was key. The third horse in last returned to win the Gold Cup at Santa Anita last weekend.

Better Bet was rank and forced to steady last time but the marooned post could compromise him.

Storm Fighter gets the nod. He has natural speed but doesn’t need the lead to win and he appears to be coming to the race at the top of his game.
