Accelerate Wins Los Alamitos Derby at Los Alamitos

Los Alamitos Race Course in Cypress, California was the scene of the $200,000 Grade 2 Los Alamitos Derby Stakes on Saturday, September 24 - a 1 1/8 mile dirt test for three year olds. Heavy 4-5 favorite, Hronis Racing's Accelerate had to wait out a lengthy inquiry but was eventually declared winner in his graded stakes debut - by a head over a very game, 3-1 second choice Semper Fortis. 5-2 second betting choice Blackjackcat finished third in the field in the field of eight, while Mishegas, Curlin Road, Sugar Buzz, Chris and Dave, and Arizona Moon completed the order of finish.
