          Owned by David Hinkins, the Favorite Cartel colt Price Fixer won the first 300-yard race of the season for 2-year-olds at Los Alamitos, leaving the gate in good form before taking off powerfully to score a 1 ½ length victory in his racing debut here on Saturday night.


       Purchased for $85,000 at the Los Alamitos Equine Sale, Price Fixer came into the race following a pair of strong gate drills, including a :12.30 work at 220-yards that was the 4th fastest of 34 works on March 26. He was ridden to victory on Saturday by Rodrigo Aceves.

          “We really loved him when we saw him at the sale,” trainer Adan Farias said. “Mr. Hinkins said ‘let’s try and get this horse.’ It’s the best thing we could have done because he can really run. In his first workout he did :12.4 easy. Then the last time, he went 12.3 easily as well. We still don’t know how fast he can really be.”

          Bred by Ed Allred, Price Fixer is out of the Chickafirst, who has now produced 11 winners from 15 starters. A finalist to the PCQHRA Breeders Derby in her racing career, Chickafirst is the mother of stakes winners Light Footed, who won the Evergreen Derby Challenge, and Freakish, winner of the James Smith Memorial Handicap. Chickafirst has also produced La Sierran, who at one time had the 100-yard track record at Los Alamitos, and For Pee Jay, who was second in the Corona Chick Handicap here.               

          Price Fixer’s granddam is the outstanding mare Chickasis, the mother of multiple stakes winners Hot Hitter and Hard Hitting. Other stakes winners from this family include Lassen County, Streak Hitter and Freaking.

          Allred won the night’s other race 2-year-olds, this one with the Fast Prize Cartel filly named Corona Rose. Owned in partnership with Tom Seibly, Corona Rose won the 220-yard race by ¾ lengths over Secret Success in a time of :12.197. The EG High Desert Farms-bred filly was making her second career start after posting a runner-up effort to Imm Born To Fly on March 19. Corona Rose’s dam, Remember To Dash, ran in the Ed Burke Million Futurity and Golden State Million Futurity in 2017. The First Down Dash mare is out of the AQHA Dam of Distinction Remember Me Rose, who is the mother of Grade 1 winners Powerful Favorite, Bomb Cyclone, Runforyourlife, and Cyber Monday.

          Henry Reynoso Lopez piloted Corona Rose for trainer James Glenn, Jr.
