Abel Tasman Wins Starlet Stakes at Los Alamitos Race Course

Los Alamitos Race Course in Los Alamitos, California was the scene of the $300,000 G1 Starlet Stakes on Saturday, December 10 - a 1 1/16 mile dirt test for two year old fillies. Clearsky Farms' homebred Abel Tasman continued to impress, this time posting the upset one length victory in the field of nine at 12-1 odds. 4-5 favorite American Gal faded at the end but held on for second while longshot Mopotism checked in a quality third. Tapped was fourth followed by Del Mar Debutante winner - 9-2 third betting pick Union Strike, Sandy's Surprise, 4-1 second choice Berned, Fact of Life, and Go On Mary to complete the order of finish.
