Los Alamitos Race Course

LRC 4 (Bertrando Stakes, CA-bred, 8f) #4 Scary Fast Smile (2-1) all the way, #1 Desmond Doss (2-1) getting first run, or #2 Brandothebartender (8-5) rallying for the win. Those are the three most likely outcomes. The key here is whether Scary Fast Smile can go two turns. He exits back-to-back dirt sprint romps and might not look back, but he is bred to sprint and his trainer struggles first route. Brandothebartender reconnects with his winning rider Rispoli and might make the last run, but I am going with Desmond Doss. The latter will probably sit in second and might be able to reel in Scary Fast Smile if that one fails to see out the added ground. Wagers: #1 to win, Exacta 1/2-4, Exacta 2-4/1
