Thursday's 7th race (5:00pm PT) from Los Alamitos is the $100k Bertrando for CA-bred or sired 3-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the main track.
#3 Rousing Sermon (4-1)
might fall into the garden spot trip behind a few speed horses. Hollendorfer excels turf-to-dirt and new pilot Pedroza has had some stakes success with this barn in the past (Blueskiesnrainbows).

#9 Storm Fighter (5-2) stalked and faded in the productive G2 Californian at 9f. He is 2-for-2 at a flat mile and beat my top in the April 26 Tiznow. Look out if he shakes loose early.
#7 Tribal Jewel
(8-1) is also conditioned by Hollendorfer. He exits a clear place finish vs. $75k claimers at Santa Anita. He is 2-for-2 at this distance on dirt and can move up 2nd off the shelf.
#5 Full Dancer (10-1) brings strong CD and OP form to the table for new trainer Truman. The early-pressing type loves this trip and figures in the thick of things throughout under Mike Smith.
#6 Rock Me Baby
(6-1) is worth a gander at a decent price. He almost has to move forward after a much needed Santa Anita sprint and he's a pretty consistent performer if you draw a line through his two graded tries.
