       Ed Allred and Tom Seibly’s Stel Easy is steadily developing into one of the top older horses on the grounds at Los Alamitos Race Course. Stel Easy, winner of the Jens List Memorial Stakes for 3-year-olds last year, enjoyed another good moment during this, his 4-year-old campaign, as he outdueled multiple stake winner Rite Regal to win the $15,000 Be A Bono Handicap here on Saturday night.

Ridden by Carlos Huerta for trainer Scott Willoughby, Stel Easy led the 350-yard race from start to finish and crossed the wire a half-length ahead of Urschel 3-D ranch LLC’s Rite Regal. Stel Easy, a gelding by Stel Corona, covered the distance in :17.583 while scoring his seventh in 14 career starts. Stel Easy, bred by Dr. Steve Burns DVM, has been solid in 2017. He began the year with an allowance victory on May 20 and then posted a solid second place finish in a trial to the Vessels Maturity on June 11. He finished out of the money in the Grade 1 Vessels Maturity final, but then ran a game third when taking on millionaires He Looks Hot and Heza Dasha Fire in the Spencer Childers California Breeders Championship Handicap on July 30. Four weeks later in the Be A Bono, Stel Easy returned with another top performance, as he led right from the start on the way to earning $8,250 for finishing in first place. Stel Easy improved his career earnings to $78,294 with the win.

Rite Regal, winner of the California Breeders Sprint Stakes on July 30, earned $3,375 for his runner-up effort. The Favorite Cartel gelding won three stakes races here last year, the El Primero Del  Ano Derby, Golden State Derby, and Z. Wayne Griffin Directors Trial. He’s now earned $386,467 in 19 career starts. He’s finished in the top two in 15 of those outings. Martha Wells’ Chicks Fayvorite finished third and was followed across the wire by Michael Amburn’s Freakin Runaway and Jesus D. Padilla’s El Remalcable.
