Stakes for Juveniles Top Los Alamitos Winter Meet

Four stakes for 2-year-olds—including a pair of graded races—highlight the upcoming winter Thoroughbred meet at Los Alamitos Race Course.

The six-day season is scheduled to begin Dec. 8 and continue through Dec. 17. Racing will be conducted on a Friday-Sunday basis (Dec. 8-10 and 15-17) both weeks. Post time will be 12:30 p.m. local time.

The $300,000-guaranteed Starlet Stakes (G2) for 2-year-old fillies will be renewed for the 10th time at Los Alamitos Dec. 9, one week before the Dec. 16 $200,000-guaranteed Los Alamitos Futurity (G2), which was captured by eventual Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner Practical Move  in 2022.

Won a year ago by Faiza , the Starlet—like the Futurity—will be contested at 1 1/16 miles.

The other two stakes for juveniles will be run at one mile. The $100,000 Soviet Problem Stakes—for fillies—will be offered Dec. 10 while the $100,000 King Glorious Stakes will be run Dec. 17. Both are for 2-year-olds bred or sired in California.

Completing the stakes schedule is the $100,000 Bayakoa Stakes (G3) for fillies and mares 3 years old and up at 1 1/16 miles. The Bayakoa will be contested Dec. 15.
