Socially Significant, a daughter of Corona Cartel and a full sister to 2014 champion aged mare Significant Heart owned by the partnership of Hubbard, Benson, and Stowe, posted the fastest 220-yard gate work at Los Alamitos on April 20, as the Oklahoma-bred filly covered the :12.20.

Socially Significant was bred by Bobby Cox and is trained by Jose Flores. The filly is out of Jess Significant, a daughter of champion Mr Jess Perry who won the 2008 Rainbow Futurity (G1) and was a finalist in that season's All American Futurity (G1), both at Ruidoso Downs.

Socially Significant is eligible to compete in the Grade 1 Ed Burke Million, Golden State Million, and Los Alamitos Two-Million futurities. She’s also eligible to race in the trials to the 2020 Los Alamitos Oaks.

Here are some of the other notables that worked on April 20:

  • Mia Cartel (:12.3) California-bred filly by Fast Prize Cartel out of Eyesontheprice, an unraced daughter of First Rate Choice, who is from the family of the blue-hen mare Harems Choice. The latter produced All American Futurity winner Royal Quick Dash and Grade 1 winning champion First Sovereign plus many more. First Rate Choice earned $98,220 in her career and was a overnight handicap winner at Los Alamitos. She also finished third in the 2003 La Primera Del Año Derby.
