     The red hot team of owner Ed Allred, trainer Scott Willoughby and jockey Carlos Huerta added another stakes victory following Well And Done’s convincing score in the $15,000 Scott Lewis Handicap on Friday at Los Alamitos.

Racing from post number four as the 3-2 favorite, Well And Good trailed stablemate China Wall early on before taking total control of the 550-yard contest midway through the race. The Separatist gelding opened up a sizeable lead from there, eventually crossing the wire 1 ½ lengths ahead of Barbra B Handicap runner-up Jess Bring It in a hand time of :27.10. Well And Good improved his record to three wins in 14 starts. He’s finished in the money in 10 of those outings. His earnings are now $89,659. Well And Good also proved to be productive at any distance. He was second in the Cypress Handicap earlier this year at 350 yards and fourth in last year’s Governor’s Cup Derby at 400 yards. He ran third in the 350-yeard Governor’s Cup Futurity in 2013.

Allred, Willoughby, and Huerta have also enjoyed nice success in a variety of stakes races. The trio teamed up to win the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity at 400 yards with He Looks Hot last year and also won the Paul Ford Handicap at 500 yards with Sweet TR. Huerta has been an all-around success in  stakes races in the past few months, as he also piloted Allred’s Quirky to wins in the Grade 1 Southern California Derby and Grade 2 Charger Bar Handicap.

Double Bar S Ranch’s Jess Bring It earned $3,375 for running second and was followed by Allred’s China Wall, who finished third. Forgotten Dynasty, Hugos Private Jet, Snowdalicious, and Phone Tag completed the field.
