LOS ALAMITOS FEATURES A GREAT TRADITION OF CHAMPION 3-YEAR-OLD FILLIES

Since 1989, 18 AQHA champion 3-year-old fillies won at least one races at Los Alamitos during their championship campaigns. Most recently in 2018, Parsons Family Limited Partnership’s A Political Lady, the winner of the La Primera Del Ano Derby, was named the AQHA champion 3-year-old filly on the strength of her multiples winning campaign at Los Alamitos. The last three sophomore fillies to win the title of AQHA World Champion (See Me Do It in 1989, Dashing Folly in 1987 and Blues Girl Too in 2007) all won at least one major stakes race at Los Alamitos during their championship season.
