           With track management at Los Alamitos Race Course always looking for ways to improve on its unmatched tradition of a great stakes schedule for fillies and mares, the Los Alamitos Quarter Horse Racing Association announced on Monday that the 2021 Los Alamitos Oaks will have a projected $500,000 purse, which would likely make it the richest race in the nation for 3-year-old fillies. This announcement follows the very positive response from the Quarter Horse racing industry to the introduction of the 2020 Los Alamitos Oaks.

The $500,000 projected purse for 2021 would be a 25% increase from the projected $400,000 purse to this year’s inaugural Los Alamitos Oaks set to be held on Saturday, March 28, 2020. The 2021 Los Alamitos Oaks will feature a $350,000 guaranteed purse and $125,000 in added money. The 400-yard race is for 3-year-old Quarter Horse fillies (Foals of 2018).

The cost to nominate to the 2021 Los Alamitos Oaks will remain the same from 2020, but it’s important to note that this running will feature a different payment schedule. The original nomination of $500 will now be due on February 15, 2020 with subsequent $500 payments due on April 15, July 1, September 1 and November 1, 2020. There will be a $1,000 trial entry fee, which also remains unchanged from last year. Trials will be held in early March of 2021 at Los Alamitos Race Course.

            “The 2021 Los Alamitos Oaks continues on my commitment to filly and mare racing at Los Alamitos Race Course,” said Ed Allred, the owner and CEO of Los Alamitos Race Course. “The Los Alamitos stakes schedule for fillies and mares is also highlighted by the Grade 1, $100,000 Charger Bar, Grade 1, $125,000 Mildred Vessels plus the Grade 3 Las Damas Handicap and Grade 3 Miss Princess Handicap.”

            As with all futurities and derbies sponsored by Los Alamitos Race Course, the Los Alamitos Oaks has NO administrative and advertising fees. One-hundred percent of the fees are added to the purse of the race.

The Orange County track is also home to the Denim N Diamonds Handicap, La Pacifica Handicap, Ivan Ashment Handicap, California Breeders Freshman Fillies Stakes, Restricted Grade 3 California Breeders Matron Stakes, California Breeders Debutante Stakes and frequent overnight handicaps and allowance and claiming races.

Since 1989, 18 AQHA champion 3-year-old fillies won at least one race at Los Alamitos during their championship campaigns. Parsons Family Limited Partnership’s A Political Lady, the winner of the La Primera Del Ano Derby, was named the 2018 AQHA champion 3-year-old filly on the strength of her multiples winning campaign at Los Alamitos. Scott Bryant’s Flash And Roll, the 2018 champion 2-year-old filly, won the 2019 Los Alamitos Super Derby and is a leading contender for this year’s divisional title for fillies.  The last three sophomore fillies to win the title of AQHA World Champion (See Me Do It in 1989, Dashing Folly in 1987 and Blues Girl Too in 2007) all won at least one major stakes race at Los Alamitos during their championship season.
