Saturday’s 9th race from Los Alamitos Race Course (12-16-17) is the $100,000 King Glorious Stakes for CA-bred or sired 2-year-olds traveling one mile on the main track. 

#4 Lucky Romano (6-1) is a first time gelding exiting an even 3rd in the Golden State Juvenile and today’s rider Tyler Baze got to know him that day. His new trainer Mark Glatt put a couple of five furlong works into him and he figures to stalk lively splits.  

#2 Intimidate (4-1) gamely defeated Lucky Romano at Golden Gate Oct 22 and lost all chance following a troubled start in the Golden Nugget Stakes last time. Mike Smith hops aboard and he might try to relax early in his first start around two turns. 

#7 Campaigner (6-1) was an okay 4th in the common Golden State Juvenile and is the only entrant with local experience (2nd at LRC Sept 23). An outside stalking trip is projected. 

#6 Bookies Luck (8-5) just lasted in the Golden State Juvenile and he meets other speed in his first route start. The pace player won’t offer much wagering value. 

The Plays:

#4 to win
