Old Time Hockey an interesting price player in American Flag

Friday's 7th race (5:00pm PT) from Los Alamitos Race Course is the $75k American Flag for 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track.

#1 Old Time Hockey (8-1) had his form darkened after a fading 10th in the G2 Elkhorn at 12f last time. Before that, he won a $75k turf stakes route at Tampa Bay, easily beat three rivals in an off the turf event at this distance, and just missed in the Sunshine Millions Turf at the Gulf. The Proctor trainee runs well fresh and Van Dyke shows a profit with this outfit.

#3 War Academy (5-2) smartly won as a new gelding in a 7f affair at Santa Anita June 15. The Baffert trainee has always been highly regarded and he captured his last start at this distance.  

#5 Magic Mark (2-1) won 4 of 5 dirt races around two turns at Santa Anita and his victory on June 19 earned a strong rating. He is on the upswing but might have been aided by the speed friendly SA surface. 

#2 Handsome Mike (4-1) is not big on winning (3-for-27 overall; 1 for last 17) but drops out of the graded ranks and should be competitive vs. this kind.

#6 Sky Kingdom (5-1) is a graded winner making his first start in 11+ months for Baffert. He finished 2nd in the G3 Cougar II at Del Mar last summer and is probably prepping for that event on July 25.     

The Plays:

$16 to win #1

$1 Trifecta 1 with 2, 3, 5, 6 with 2, 3, 5, 6 ($12)

$1 Trifecta 2, 3, 5, 6 with 1 with 2, 3,5, 6 ($12)

Given, you cannot out-filth me, amino. Know your audience. I used to be an imbecile about the Plate, too. Try reading. I know, evilmente will follow. I am cringing already. Hi, icy. I'm rarely this right,ha,ha. Hope you enjoyed!
6 had won at longer distance. Think he won before at this distance at a decent pace. Good off a layoff. Speed to sit off of, but I thought two would duel and burn out, but something may be wrong w/War Academy.
LOGIC all you ever present is K-RAP!
At least I answer when my logic is questioned.
drivel smply means NONSENSE nothing more...Look it up
It was her trashy joke, I think… right Mary?
Mary Z. · 6 Sky Kingdom... This is the complete statement of the person you trashed amino998, and I do now question your logic, or lack of. How did you get so much out of so little. Please back of your trashing.
t_v, mary almost swallowed your copious drivel :) At least I answer when my logic is questioned.
ALWAYS after the fact with this one ^
I hope you killed it Tmal i mean Tamin ,sorry i am all screwed up. Nice hit Amino
Yeah, thanks. I bet that race just right :)
Thank you Mary! Nobody knows California horses like you. I caught all the exotics mucho times. Thanks again.
odd were nice on the dutch leaving out the shortest priced one
6 2 5 1 at the wire
no the master of that lives in Mexico
6 Sky Kingdom.
Fascinating t_v, but doesn’t answer the questions. Or was that statement just more of your copious drivel?
Contenders: #2, 3, 4, 5. Bad race, bad track, no value. Choice to the #3 War Academy (5/2) the speed wire to wire. Good luck!!!
horrdi betting race... I would not have chosen it. Need widespread betting distribution to make any money. Fields of 8 or more.
Four {or five} contenders listed and none will be 3-1 or more??? Or are there a lesser number of REAL contenders?
