      Here’s my opinion of the top 10 Quarter Horse juveniles that have already raced at Los Alamitos this season. There are three newcomers to the list led by a new number one in the rankings in M & G Farms’ Golden Boi, who posted the meet’s fastest 220-yard time of :12.081. He outdueled Ed Allred’s promising runner Need A Favor on Friday night.

          Ricardo Ramirez’s Chizum enters the list at number three after winning at 300 yards by two lengths on Friday night, while Allred’s More Than Chance gets the number 10 spot following his surprising victory at 220 yards on Saturday. The top 10 will surely chance significantly next week with the trials to the first futurity of the year, the Grade 2 Robert Adair Kindergarten, slated for Sunday, April 25. 

1. Golden Boi – Favorite Cartel colt trailed early before flying late to win against a very good foe in Need A Favor. He did so in a time that bettered the previous fastest clocking of the meet at 220 yards by 4/100ths of a second. He’s built like a horse that will love distances 350 and up.

2. Griffindore – The racing experience promises to be of huge benefit for this colt by Corona Cartel. He hasn’t had a chance to unleash his undeniable talents during morning gate drills and he drifted in when his debut by daylight on April 9. When he puts it all together, it could be magical for Griffindore.

3. Chizum – He was acquired for $150,000 at the Ruidoso Yearling Sale and by the looks of his debut, the son of Tempting Dash is worth every penny of that purchase price. He made no mistakes in his 300-yard debut, as won by two lengths last Friday night.

4. Valente One – Son of Corona Cartel was impressive when debuting with a half-length victory three weeks ago and he should be well-rested for his next start.

5. Majority Interest – Filly by Seperate Interest had a strong win in her debut and is out of Remember Me Rose, who is one of the nation’s top mares. She’s the dam of local Grade 1 stakes winnrs Powerful Favorite and Runforyourlife plus of Ruidoso Futurity winner Cyber Monday.

6. La Blue Amore – The Kiddy Up filly looked like a seasoned pro when she won her debut in gate to wire fashion by 1 ¼ lengths. She was one of the first juvenile winners of the meet and will be well rested for her return start.

7. New And Better – By freshman sire Fly Thru The Fire, he overcame trouble to win racing debut. He’s a half-brother to Grade 2 derby winner New Look and Grade 1 finalist Renewed.

8. Good Reason To Run – Filly by AQHA champion stallion Good Reason SA, who won the Champion of Champions here. Her time was a sharp 12.159 when winning by a neck over 4-5 favorite New York Teller MRL on Friday night.

9. Unavailable – Was bumped at the start but held off Woman Secrets in debut, who returned to win at 300 yards. Unavailable is solid top 10 and perhaps Woman Secrets should also be high on this list.

10. More Than Chance – His winning time of :12.107 is second only to Golden Boi season. He’s also the fastest juvenile by Fly Thru The Fire that we’ve had so far this meet. Out of Elans Last, More Than Chance is half-brother to Grade 1 Ed Burke Million Futurity winner Chance To Excel. 

Others to watch: Quarrelsome, Docs Fast Lane, Lukka, Mookkie, Need A Favor, New York Teller MRL, Women Secrets, Set For It, Powerhouse, FG Jess Seis, Watch Out, Dasha Good Reason, Southern Best, Hitters Count, and Nevada Charles.
