       A full field of 10 Quarter Horses racing in the Grade 1 Los Alamitos Winter Championship sparked a record pool in the late Pick Four of $145,587 on Sunday night at Los Alamitos Race Course. The figure eclipsed the previous record high of $141,711 on the night of the trials to the Kindergarten Futurity on May 3, 2015

 

The early Pick Four also enjoyed a nice pool of $155,280 on Sunday night. The combined handled for the two Pick Four pools of $300,865 was the fourth highest single night figure ever at the Orange County track. That record was set earlier this year when a combined $329,787 was bet in the Pick Fours on the night o the Charger Bar Handicap on Sunday, January 8. That figure included the second highest ever early Pick 4 pool of $190,650 and now the third highest late Pick Four pool ever of $139,137.

 

The featured event in Sunday’s record late Pick Four was the $150,900 Winter Championship, which was won by Bill Hoburg’s BH Lisas Boy (photo) over AQHA champion 3-year-old gelding Zoomin For Spuds. BH Lisas Boy earned a berth to the 2017 Champion of Champions with his Winter Championship win.  

 

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.
