Thursday’s seventh race from Los Alamitos Race Course is an optional claiming event for 3-year-olds and up dashing six furlongs on the main track (Post Time - 6:58 p.m. ET).
#4 I AM THE DANGER (6-1) has improved since Doug O’Neill claimed him Aug. 23. He exits a place finish vs. starter allowance foes and the show finisher was a next out winner. He gets in light with apprentice Heriberto Figueroa and projects a stalking trip.

#9 Paddock Pick (4-1) turns back in distance and might sit the right outside stalking trip. He is 1-for-12 with seven minor awards.
#8 Storminside (12-1) adds blinkers for position ROI 90+ day layoff trainer Tim Yakteen. He owns running style versatility.
#10 Sir Samson (12-1) fired exacta shots in all four local starts and Art Sherman shows a +ROI with his turf-to-dirt runners.
#4 to win
