LOS ALAMITOS TO RUN INAUGURAL FRED SCANE MEMORIAL STAKES ON JUNE 19

        Los Alamitos Race Course will honor the memory of the late Fred Scane, a highly-respected Quarter Horse owner, breeder, and stallion manager, with the running of a brand new stakes race for 2-year-old fillies to be run here on Saturday, June 19.

        To be named the Fred Scane Memorial Handicap, the race will have a $25,000 purse and will be contested at 350 yards. The race will be held on the same weekend as the Ed Burke Million Futurity.

        A leading breeder and owner of some of the biggest names in the sport, Scane passed away at the age of 82 on February 26, 2020. Involved in Quarter Horse racing for over 40 years, he owned Scane Ranch in Chino, where leading stallion Merridoc stood, and later a ranch in Murrieta, where he boarded Quarter Horses for many leading operations. Scane was Ed Allred’s stallion manager and a member of the Pacific Coast Quarter Horse Racing Association board of directors.

       Scane was the breeder of three of Merridoc's finest offspring in AQHA champions Solvency, Apprehend, and Griswold.  In recent years, Scane campaigned stakes winners  Separate Lives and Fighting City Hall.  As stallion manager for Ed Allred’s Rolling A Ranch, Fred Scane worked with some of the most prominent stallions in California. He managed Walk Thru Fire, Separatist, TR Dasher, Snowbound, Stel Corona, and the champion sire Kiddy Up. He was also an ever-present figure at most of the major Quarter Horse sale auctions. 

            “I leaned on Fred for advice on breeding and racing,” Allred said. “He was nationally known and had so many great contacts in the industry to build stallion syndications.”  

            Nominations for the Fred Scane Memorial will close on Thursday, June 10. For more info, please call the Los Alamitos Racing Office at 714-820-2788.
