A strong collection of stakes runners will get together in the Grade III, $35,000 Kaweah Bar Handicap at 350 yards on Saturday at Los Alamitos. Seven top older horses will be in action with four of them boasting a stakes victory at Los Alamitos either this year or in 2019. First post for the nine-race program is 6 p.m.

            The field will be headed by Ruth Barbour, Colton O’Dell and Wendy O’Dell’s Tac Me Up, the winner of the Cypress Handicap on January 17 and most recently the third-place finisher in the Mr Jet Moore Handicap on March 21. He was also second in the Grade II, $169,000 Southern California Derby last year. Eduardo Nicasio will ride for AQHAchampion trainer Chris ODell.

            Ed Allred’s Chocolatito won the Dillingham Handicap last year and was a top performer in many derbies here last year. He was fourth in the Southern California Derby when making a big late run after leaving the gate in ninth place. He was second by a nose in the PCQHRABreeders Derby and fifth in the Grade IIGolden State Derby. To be ridden by Vinnie Bednar for trainer Scott Willoughby, Chocolatito will start from post number one.

            John and Carol Cooper’s Alamode (photo) was the star on the night of the Mr Jet Moore. The Kiddy Up gelding broke out but was just too strong outfinishing the sizzling Rite Quick in that 350-yard dash. Alberto Rosiles’s Rite Quick is the track record holder at 110-yards and has proven to be dominant at that distance. He’s been quite good at 350 yards as well, earning place money in the Mr Jet Moore, being the runner-up to Tac Me Up in the Cypress and finishing second in Super Sound Charge at 300 yards. Cartel Rocks, Chicks Fayvorite and My Favorite Cartel will complete the field. Saturday’s card will also feature a pair of events for 2-year-old Quarter Horses.
