The Grade III, $200,000 Los Alamitos Derby and the $150,000 Forbidden Apple are part of a special cross country Pick 4 being offered Saturday.

Two races from Los Alamitos and a pair from Belmont Park will comprise the 50-cent minimum wager, which is being labeled “New York-Los Alamitos Pick 4.''

Besides the Forbidden Apple, which is scheduled for one mile on the Widener turf course and attracted 11 runners – including a main track only entrant – the other race from Belmont is a six-furlong contest for 2-year-old maidens bred in New York.

The Forbidden Apple, which is the eighth on the New York Racing Association program, has an approximate post time of 2:18 p.m. PDT while the ninth race for maidens is scheduled to be run at 2:50 p.m. PDT.

In addition to the Los Alamitos Derby, which is headed by Easy Goer Stakes winner West Coast, the other local part of the exotic wager is an optional claimer for older horses at one mile.

Both of the Los Alamitos races have eight entrants and will go as races 6-7. The sixth is scheduled for 4:28 p.m. PDT while approximate post time for the Derby is 4:58 p.m. PDT.

      Great idea! Just like the short lived Hollywood Park/Los Al 405 double. Sure to pay under $50.

      • Paul Cassidy

        Yeah, small payoffs suck; but it’s still enough to pay for your wife and an order of fries on the way home.

          Good one!

        • GBL

          Only if you can hit it. All you need to do to get back $50 is to put $10 to win on 4/1 at any track. Why bother to go through all this trouble?

    • Joe Strummer

      He’s something else all right. Should be in line for a key role in the Trump administration.

    Los al is a complete failure for daytime thouroughbred racing,, they had a thousand in attendance yesterday. It would be better for sport in calif, just to take a break until del mar. Running at night at los al would be better if you marketed that for a few years. And i think martin panza is the reason ny racing has improved

    Wait, isn’t the Belmont meet over before Saturday? Wait again, hasn’t Los Al Thoroughbred Meet already ended also? Wow, maybe we can past post this bet, cool!
