     Professor G at Los Alamitos takes a look at the seven juveniles with gate works since their last start prior to Sunday’s Ed Burke Million trials. Each runner’s description also includes a link to the video workout described below. All videos of gate works are available here:


Race  4- Ed Burke Million Trial                                                

#5 Halley – May 23  :13.0 at 220 yards – Solo


She scurried out of the gate and was moving on a straight path while racing under a big hold. She continued to move nicely while her rider had a good grab of the reins. She continued to move past the wire while still under wraps. The Apollitical Jess filly scored a nose win in her debut here on April 19.

#7 Leggolas - May 16 :12.10 – Solo


 Had a light bobble out of the gate but displaying a short, quick stride early on. He began to stretch his legs out during the second half of the drill and showed a powerful stride past the wire, while moving with a solid gallop out after the finish line. He was fourth in his debut on May 2.

Race 6 - Ed Burke Million Trial                                      

#7 Jess Lyndes Reason - May 19 :18.10 - Solo                            


A half-length winner in her racing debut, the Good Reason SAfilly returned with this sharp gate workout at 350 yards on May 19. She left the gate sharply but appeared to hesitate just a touch after few strides into the work. She floated to the inside, but then really found her stride and finished strongly while continuing with a good gallop out past the wire.

Race 8 - Ed Burke Million Trial                                     

#7 Diva On Fire - May 23 :12.50 - Solo                               


Finished third to Valantini in her debut on April 24. She posted a solid work here, leaving the gate in quick fashion. She moved with her head high for the first 50 yards of her drill before looking a lot smoother from there while working under a hold. She continued to work under wraps the rest of the way and had an easy gallop out after the wire.

Race 9 - Ed Burke Million Trial                                      

#5 FGJess Paintin Thru - May 23 :12.50 - Solo                         


Was leaning on her right side before the start of the work. She left the gate in good form and was under a strong hold early on. She shifted in slightly to the inside. The PYCPaint Your Wagon filly continued to race under a good hold through the finish line and past the wire. She won her debut by a nose over Thin Lizzey, who was entered in a race this past Friday night.

Race 11 - Ed Burke Million Trial                          

#6 Dynastik - May 23 :12.10 - Inside Horse                                 


Outworked North Of Yuma on May 23 12.10 to 12.50 when making her return to the track after running eighth in a maiden event on May 23. Dynastik hopped out of the gate and it took him a few strides to really get going. Was asked several times from there and he responded with a good burst while crossing the wire 3/4 lengths ahead of rival. He continued with a good gallop out while posting the second fastest of 11 drills on May 23.

Race 12 - Ed Burke Million Trial                                    

#2 Opt Out - May 16 :12.10 - Solo                                         


Posted the fastest of 23 drills on May 16 when covering the distance in 12.10. Trainer Jose Flores has said that Opt Out does not like to be told where to stand while in the starting gate and the video shows just that, as the Favorite Cartel colt is acting up a bit before the start. He hops out of the gate and starts to drift in right away. He’ll continue to float to the inside but will level out for about 100 yards before moving to the inside once again, this time just before the finish line. He continued to show good energy past the wire while never being asked by his rider.
