     Los Alamitos Race Course had a record combined handle for a single night in its Pick Fours after a sum of $329,787 was wagered in its early and late Pick Fours on Sunday.

 

The early Pick Four on Sunday night handled $190,650, which is the second highest figure ever at the Orange County oval, only behind the record $192,292 set April 10, 2016. The late Pick Four on Sunday night then handled $139,137, which is this particular exotic’s second highest figure only to the $141,711 wagered on Sunday, May 3, 2015. The combined total of the two Pick Fours shattered the previous track record of $319,959 bet in the Pick Fours on Kindergarten trials night on Sunday, May 4, 2015. The Los Alamitos racing weekend on January 6-8 also featured a combined total of $815,244 wagered in the six Pick Fours offered over the three nights of racing. The figure is also an all-time record at the Orange County oval.

 

The new single night record set on Sunday was highlighted by the running of the Grade 1, $100,000 Charger Bar Handicap for fillies and mares, which was the eighth and final race on the card and the closing leg of the late Pick Four. The Charger Bar featured an outstanding field of 10 mares headed by reigning champion aged mare Quirky, as she attempted to become the first three-time winner of the Charger Bar. John and Cina Sperry’s Jess Good Reason was the upset winner of the Charger Bar at 10-1 odds. Jess Good Reason was picking up her third graded stakes win of her career.

 

Los Alamitos offers two Pick Fours each racing night. The early Pick Fours consist of races one through four. The late Pick Fours consist of the final four races on the card.
