Los Alamitos 7 | 8:00 pm ET G2 Great Lady M for 3&up F&M going 6.5f

AMARANTH was a winner of the BetAmerica Oaks at Pleasanton last out with a wire-to-wire victory and while the waters get deeper here, she can score her third straight race. She could be the speed of the field, drew well in post five and at 8-1 is worth a bet. SAGEBRUSH QUEEN has won two of her last three with the only loss coming in a race around two turns. She has some tactical speed, but will be doing her best running late. TRES BELLE has won two straight, both a Churchill Downs, but drew inside here and that may not be the place to be. The Bob Baffert-trained filly is a must use in any pick 4 wager. HEIR KITTY and DOINGHARDTIMEAGAIN are a couple of back class fillies and on their best day would win this race with east. HEIR KITTY drops out of four straight graded stake races including a win in the Grade 1 La Brea in December. DOINGHARDTIMEAGAIN won the Grade 2 Hollywood Oaks in June 2013 and is making her second start off a 10 month layoff.
