On Saturday at Los Alamitos, the track will host the $100,000 King Glorious Stakes. Restricted to California-bred two-year-olds, the one mile contest has drawn a full field of ten colts and geldings with one additional entered as also-eligible.
Found Money tops the field as the morning line favorite at odds of 7-2 for trainer Doug O’Neill. A chestnut son of Square Eddie bred and owned by Reddam Racing, he has been on the board in four of his six starts and is a two-time winner. After winning his first two starts, including the Santa Anita Juvenile Stakes, he is trying to regain his winning form and was last seen finishing fourth in the Delta Jackpot Stakes (G3). Mario Gutierrez will be aboard and they will break from post nine.
Tough it Out making stakes debut
Second choice at morning line odds of 4-1 is Tough it Out for trainer Phil D’Amato. A gray son of Grazen, the homebred colt will be making his stakes debut and broke his maiden against state-bred competition last time out at Del Mar. His prior two efforts were not noteworthy. Santiago Gonzalez will be in the irons and they are scheduled to break from post position seven as he goes for his second consecutive victory.
Record Highs trying to improve off recent form
Also in the field at morning line odds of 5-1 is Record Highs for trainer Carla Gaines. A chestnut son of Heatseeker (IRE) bred and owned by Harris Farms, he has one win from four starts and will be trying to earn his first black type victory. He broke his maiden in his second career start and has been off the board in both subsequent tries against winners. Rafael Bejarano will be aboard from post position three.
