URANGA OFF TO A FAST START TO NEW MEET

                Trainer Jesus Uranga is off to a flying start two weeks into the new racing season at Los Alamitos. Uranga will begin the week as the meet’s overall leading trainer with four wins and three seconds from his first nine starters. Uranga was at the top of his game right away, as each of his first six starters either won or ran second.      

          The trainer will have several opportunities to add to his excellent record on Friday night, as he saddles the hard knocking runner Cioppino Pasadino as well as the returning Sensorrey in the second race. He’ll also saddle Glitter Gulch in the fourth and Peter Alan in the fifth. Uranga finished the 2020 racing season as the top trainer in the mixed breed standings with 14 wins and fifth in the Thoroughbred standings with 15 wins.                                           

          In the evening’s Quarter Horse races, Check My Cartel returns to action in the seventh race after a three-month layoff. The son of Favorite Cartel won the Sophomore Claiming Stakes on California Breeders Champions Night last year. The card will also see seven sprinters led by Bad Likker facing off in an $13,200 allowance event.
