               Legacy Ranch’s Wicked Affair shined once again in morning gate works for 2-year-olds on Tuesday at Los Alamitos, as the daughter of One Sweet Jess was one of three to share the bullet drill of :12.10 at 220 yards.  Dennis Jensen and Randy Young’s Budbreak and Steve McIntyre and Marin Jones’ Cole Man 47 were the two from among the 37 juveniles to also work in :12.10 on Tuesday.

Trained by Terry Knight, the homebred filly Wicked Affair has now excelled in both mornings that she’s worked at Los Alamitos. Out of the mare Burr Cold, a two-time allowance winner here, Wicked Affair also had the bullet work when posting a :12.3 clocking on March 13.

“We’re excited about her,” Knight said. “She’s shown some talent and has been a real professional so far. She’s been that way from day one and has picked up things very quickly. Jockey Jesus Rios Ayala has been on her in the works. We’re really high on her.”

Wicked Affair is from the family of Tender Flyer, a stakes winner of $68,000, who is the dam of 2010 champion 2-year-old filly Flying Fig. The latter earned $806,920 in her racing career while finishing second in the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity, Ed Burke Million Futurity, and Golden State Million Futurity. Tender Flyer also produced stakes winners Visual Man and California Eagle plus Platki, the fastest qualifier to the Ed Burke Million Futurity last year.

            “Wicked Affair is doing things like Platki did last year,” Knight said. “They’re both big striders who cover a lot of ground with not a lot of effort. Those kind of horses separate themselves from the pack. We still have to get through a lot of hurdles with her, she still has to do it in the evening. She’s in the Kindergarten Futurity trials. We put her in the Kindergarten because she’s an early foal, but she was ready and is also a very smart filly.”

            The Monty Arrossa-trained duo of Budbreak and Stevieb Flashofcash both looked sharp once again with Budbreak finishing ahead of his workmate :12.10 to :12.20. Purchased for $22,000, Budbreak is a gelding by FDD Dynasty and out of Paint Your Beau, a finalist in the Remington Park Oklahoma Bred Futurity.  Budbreak is from the family of Ruidoso Futurity winner Okey Dokey Fantasy ($576,521), Fast Debonair ($455,658) and 2004 Los Alamitos Maiden Stakes winner Royal Medallion.   

            Trained by Paul Jones, the Utah-bred Cole Man 47 is a gelding by Stel Corona and out of GM Silver Dreams, a well-traveled mare that competed at six different tracks during a 10-race career. She won races at both SunRay Park and Zia Park during her 3-year-old year in 2008. Cole Man 47 is a full-brother to Miz Good Friday, a winner in her Ruidoso Futurity trial and third place finisher in her PCQHRA Breeders Futurity trial in 2014.  

            Owned by Five Livestock Company LLC, Stevieb Flashofcash was the only juvenile to run in :12.2 on Tuesday morning. The gelding by First Moonflash and out of Lds Good Goin Gracie is a half-brother to LDS Dash For Dylan, a Grade 1 winner of $417,432 in his career.
