The 33-1 longshot and pacesetter THE GREAT ONE led the way in the G2 Los Alamitos Futurity. THE GREAT ONE set fractions of :23.01 and :47.15. The colt threatened to take the race wire to wire, but SPIELBERG used the entire stretch to power to the win under Flavien Prat coming away with the victory by a nose. RED FLAG was the favorite of the day, but was never in contention. PETRUCHIO finishes third, rallying from last to get 3 ½ lengths behind THE GREAT ONE.
The was the seventh Los Alamitos Futurity in a row for Bob Baffert and his 13th victory overall. This was the second futurity for jockey Flavien Prat. The two-year-old is by UNION RAGS and was a $1 million yearling purchase.
