OUTSTANDING CARD SET FOR CALIFORNIA BREEDERS CHAMPIONS
One of the most prestigious Quarter Horse racing nights of the year is on tap as the 18th running of California Breeders Champions Night will offer a full evening of stakes races on Saturday, July 29.
The racing action will be headed by the running of the Governorís Cup Futurity, which annually features some of the top 2-year-olds on the grounds, plus the running of the Governorís Cup Derby. The 2016 Governorís Cup Futurity featured eventual Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity winner Worth Doing and eventual Governorís Cup winner AJS Anna Smoke, a multiple futurity finalist.
To go along with Governorís Cup Series, a full card of stakes will be contested as part of Champions Night. California Breeders Champions Night, which will once again serve as a showcase event for the finest California-bred runners in training. Featuring combined purses of nearly $1,000,000, the event is the product of joint cooperation between the Pacific Coast Quarter Horse Racing Association and track management at Los Alamitos Race Course.
The Spencer L. Childers California Breeders Championship Handicap is the main event for 3-year-old and upward and will feature a purse of $100,000. Heza Dasha Fire, the 2015 AQHA World Champion, is expected to lead the Spencer Childers field. The 2016 running went to Flay, the first 3-year-old to win the Spencer Childers since Be A Bono in 2004. While the fields to the Governorís Cup Futurity and Governorís Cup Derby were set during trial races on the weekend of July 8 and 9, horses are nominated to various of the stakes divisions that will be featured on Champions Night.
