The Cornfatther is leaving Florida after an unlucky 3rd yesterday. He can’t wait for Christmas, not for the presents, but so his home track Santa Anita will come back. For now, Los Al will do.
Race 8: 5 Furlongs. F.Alw 8000s
Pony of the Day #7 Aiming Straight (6/1) – Los Alamitos is a unique track and horses seem to either love it or hate it. The Cornfather always looks for runners who have shown an affinity for the track when he’s picking winners. This race is a home game for Aiming Straight. He races at Los Al at Night and has the highest speed figures over the surface in this field. He draws a nice outside post today and the Cornfather hopes bettors will lean towards the classier shippers from Del Mar in here. If the Cornfather gets 6/1 on this colt in his 2nd start off a layoff, he’ll make another trip to the ATM before they break the gates open.
