Monty Arrossa, one of the top Los Alamitos-based trainers, enjoyed a big Saturday night at Remington Park when he saddled Aint She Tempting to victory in the Grade 2, $383,725 Oklahoma Futurity at 18-1 odds.

Arrossa trains this young filly for Levings Racing of Edmond, Okla. A native of Jerome, Idaho, he ranked third in the country in number of wins in 2018 and was ninth last year. In 2019, he started 334 horses, won 63 times, finished second 66 times and third 53 more times. His horses earned $1,109,943.

On Saturday night, Aint She Tempting earned $153,490 for first after winning only $1,946 in her first start in the trials on March 7. Her total bankroll after two starts is $155,436. She was purchased at the Heritage Place Sale 2019 yearling sale in Oklahoma City for $21,500.

"She just does everything right," said Arrossa. "She beat the gate open tonight; shot out of there like a rocket. (Jockey) James Flores gets a lot of credit for that. He did a great job. She is paid up to the Heritage Place Futurity and that's what we are aiming at."

A 2-year-old daughter of champion sire Tempting Dash, out of the Corona Cartel mare Preslee The First, Aint She Tempting was bred in Utah by McColee Land & Livestock. She stopped the timer in :15.191 at 300 yards over a fast surface for a speed index of 97.

The trainer has enjoyed some major victories at Los Alamitos over the years. He saddled Zoomin For Spuds to win the 2016 Champion of Champions and the 2019 Los Alamitos Winter Championship. He also trained Katies Easy Moves to victory in last year’s Vessels Maturity.
