Opening Night Kicks Off With Running Of Holiday Handicap On Saturday

LOS ALAMITOS, CAóDECEMBER 20, 2020óJim Nebekerís Utah Futurity winner No Hesitation and Grade 1 Ed Burke Million Futurity finalist Strange Fellow will give trainer Jose Flores a strong 1-2 punch when they go to the starting gate for the running of the $20,000 Holiday Handicap on the first night of the new meet on Saturday at Lo Alamitos.

First post for the 8-race program is 6 p.m. (PST).

With only three local starts under his belt, No Hesitation has impressed. After shining at Wyoming Downs, the Favorite Cartel gelding was great in his trial victory to the PCQHRA Breeders Futurity. He could not keep up with the outstanding Monopolist when fifth in the PCQHR Breeders final before returning with a solid third place finish in his trial to the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity. He has been solid throughout and is the second choice on the morning line at 3-1.

The 2-1 morning line favorite is Rick Sumnerís Candy Blood, who arrived at Los Alamitos for his local debut after running fourth in the $200,000 All American Juvenile Consolation. The son of Apolitical Blood won his All American Futurity trial two races back. Roving Kind, Rox Win, Flight Queen, Proud Movin Renegade and Sassies Blues Girl will complete the field.
