Thursday’s 7th race from Los Alamitos Race Course (12-07-17) is an Optional Claiming event for 3-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the main track. 

#4 Image of Joplin (4-1) earned a strong number in a sharp prominent throughout victory in his first start after the Bill Spawr re-claim Oct 27. The sharp gelding has a nose for the wire and could easily make it three straight at a speed friendly distance. 

#2 Sheer Flattery (5-2) was competitive in all four dirt routes tries and missed by a nose vs. this kind at Del Mar Nov 12. He gets pace to chase in the paper race and could easily get the job done under Mike Smith.  

#8 Lucky J Lane (9-2) owns a couple of local wins and Steve Knapp shows a +ROI turf/dirt. 

#6 Donworth (4-1) is a first time gelding and Peter Miller excels first after the claim. He has back class, sports a six furlong bullet for this, and might wake up under Rafael Bejarano.
