           The seventh race on April 17 has turned out to be most productive event for 2-year-olds so far this season.

Jet Wings One, La Jaconde and PYC Powerglide finished first, second and fourth, respectively, in the race and all three swiftly returned last Sunday night to win their trials to the Grade II Robert Adair Kindergarten Futurity. In the process, all three qualified to the $279,200 Kindergarten final with Balgo Racing’s La Jaconde posting the fastest qualifying time.

Ricardo Ramirez’s Kingman Born was the third-place finisher in that April 17 maiden event and like his other rivals on that night he has also returned with a winning score. The colt by Favorite Cartel and out of the Raise A Secret mare Kingman Kin won the sixth race here on Saturday night. Ridden by Carlos Huerta for trainer Paul Jones, Kingman Born (photo) finished a neck ahead of Adrian Oliva’s Coopers Best Card while covering the distance in :15.845, the fastest time in the three maiden races for 2-year-olds contested on the night. Ed Allred bred Kingman Born, who was purchased for $55,000 at the Los Alamitos Equine Sale.

“He ran a decent third in his first time out and coming into this race he had a little bit of experience over the group,” Jones said. “He ran a nice race and getting a little bit better each time. Too bad he wasn’t in the Kindergarten trials. He’s in the Ed Burke Futurity trials (on June 7).”

Junior’s Quarter Horses, Inc’s Favorite Doc earned his maiden diploma in his second outing as well, as he posted a neck victory over From Above in the eighth race on Saturday. Piloted by Eduardo Nicasio for trainer Chris O’Dell, the colt by Favorite Cartel  covered the distance in :15.866.

“He’s all legs,” O’Dell said. “He’s like an 8-feet tall basketball player. I think he’s going to keep getting better as the year goes on. I’m excited to see him as he continues to mature and develop.”

Another Allred-bred runner, Favorite Doc is a half-brother to 2019 AQHA World Champion He Looks Hot and Grade I winner Once Over. Favorite Doc is out of the stakes winning mare Look Her Over. He will also make his next start in the Ed Burke trials.

Oscar Peinado won his 10th race aboard a 2-year-old this season when Coronado Red was moved up from second to first place after a disqualification in the seventh race on Saturday. Coronado Red started at Remington Park earlier this year before debuting at Los Alamitos. Mike Robbins saddled the filly by Coronado Cartel. Reliance Ranches LLC. is the owner and breeder of Coronado Red. Like Kingman Born and Favorite Doc, Coronado Red will make her next outing in the Ed Burke trials. She covered the distance in :16.101.
