- Category :
On Saturday at Los Alamitos, the featured race is the $200,000 Great Lady M Stakes. The Grade 2 event will be held at six and a half furlongs and has attracted a field of seven fillies and mares.
Fantastic Style has been installed as the heavy favorite at odds of 7-5 on the morning line for trainer Bob Baffert. A four-year-old daughter of Harlan’s Holiday, she was purchased for $525,000 as a two-year-old and has been on the board in all seven starts. She is trying to earn the sixth victory of her career and will be making only her second start since winning this race in 2015. She won the Las Flores Stakes (G3) in her first start off of an eight-month layoff. Rafael Bejarano will be aboard from post two.
Lost Bus going for third straight victory
Second choice at morning line odds of 7-2 is Lost Bus for trainer Gary Sherlock. Bred in California, the four-year-old daughter of Bring the Heat has won four of her twelve starts and is undefeated from two starts this year. She is trying to earn the second graded stakes victory of her career and is stepping back up after winning an allowance race in March. Fernando Perez will be aboard from post three.
Ben's Duchess looks to turn tables on Fantastic Style
Also in the field at morning line odds of 4-1 is Ben’s Duchess for trainer John Sadler. A four-year-old daughter of Munnings, the chestnut filly has been on the board in ten of her twelve starts and is a four-time winner. She is coming out of a runner-up effort behind Fantastic Style in the Las Flores Stakes (G3) and is scheduled to break from post position five under jockey Joe Talamo.
