Thursday's Best Bet: Coil Me Home ready to strike back at Los Alamitos

September 18, 2019 07:15pm

Thursday’s ninth 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 - 7:58 p.m. ET).

#6 COIL ME HOME (5-2) landed the rail in three of his last five starts, and he finally gets a break at the post draw. His last win was at this course-distance under Thursday's rider Flavien Prat in a CA-bred optional claiming affair late last year. Both of his career wins were at six panels. 

#7 Coliseum (9-5) makes his much anticipated return for Bob Baffert. He was excellent in his seven panel debut at Del Mar last fall, but lost as the heavy favorite in back-to-back stakes races over the winter. This is his first start in more than seven months, and he needs to shake off his gate problems. He will probably show speed under his winning pilot Joe Talamo. 

#8 Threefiveindia (4-1) is a first time gelding making his first start in more than eight months. Phil D'Amato is sending out live runners at the current stand, and Martin Garcia is riding well at Los Al. 

#4 Grinning Tiger (15-1) won a local state bred optional claimer June 30 under Thursday's rider Heriberto Figueroa. I like his stalking speed.
