            Dan Moon’s homebred filly Jet Wings One won her career debut when outdueling her rivals by a ¾ lengths in the seventh race on Friday night at Los Alamitos.

            The Idaho-bred filly broke nicely from post number four and moved ahead of the quick starting PYC Powerglide at the halfway mark before holding off Balgo Racing Team’s La Jaconde to win the 300-yard dash in a time of :15.590. Ridden by Jose Nicasio for trainer Monty Arrossa, Jet Wings One came into this race after posting the fastest of 36 works on March 31 when she covered the 220 yards in :12.30. 

Jet Wings One is out of the Hadtobenuts mare Wayward Wings, who earned $22,456 in her career while qualifying to the 2011 Wild West Futurity at Los Alamitos. Campaigned by Dan Moon, Wayward Wings won the $33,000 Hawthorne Futurity at Sandy Downs and was third in the Idaho Cup Derby at Les Bois Park. EC Jet One won eight of 10 career starts highlighted by his victory in the 2016 $2.4 million All American Derby. He also won the $200,000 Hialeah Derby and the $204,000 South Florida Derby.   


        Jet Wings One is eligible to the Robert Adair Kindergarten Futurity trials and the Golden State Million Futurity trials. As for the runner-up La Joconde, the Favorite Cartel filly was ridden by Oscar Peinado for trainer Jaime Gomez.


            A total of $2,310,716 was wagered on the eight-race program at Los Alamitos on Friday night, the highest figure ever for the live race card at the Orange County track. The figure is also the third highest all-sources handle at Los Alamitos, only behind the AQHA Racing Challenge Night programs in 2003 and 2007, a pair of cards that each featured 13-live races plus additional out of state simulcast races. The all-sources handle for the AQHA MBNA America Racing Challenge Championships on November 1, 2003 was $2,379,112 of which $1,989,071 was wagered on the 13-live races. The all-sources handle for the AQHA Bank of America Racing Challenge Championships on November 3, 2007 was $2,375,988 of which $2,074,753 was wagered on the 13-live races. Those are the only single nights with higher handles at Los Alamitos than Friday’s eight-race program.  



The early Pick Four pool on Friday was $308,469, the second highest pool in the popular bet’s history at Los Alamitos. It also marked the second time that the pool has gone over $300,000. The all-time record of $335,918 was set a week ago on Saturday, April 11.



            Trainer James Glenn Jr. had two impressive winners on Friday as Ed Allred’s Strong Willed overcame a slow start to move from fifth place to break her maiden against a group of $8,000 maiden claimers in the sixth race. Glenn Jr. added another win after the sophomore filly Up And Up scored easily in the eighth. Owned by Butte Crest Ranch and Rod Lowe, Up And Up was making only her second career starts. She’s a full sister to Charger Bar Handicap winner Kiddy Up Cowgirl and Hot Little Kiddy.
