Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity

The prestigious Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity is the crowning race for freshman in California.

The Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity (G1), a race that has grown in leaps and bounds since its inaugural running in 1995, when it was known as the Los Alamitos Million Futurity, is annually one of the richest Quarter Horse races in the nation. The race has traditionally offered a $2 million dollar purse since 2006. The purse for the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity includes $400,000 in added money.

This historic guaranteed growth of the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity is just one piece in a powerful threesome of 2-year-old races at the Orange County oval in California. In addition to the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity, Los Alamitos plays host to the $1 million Golden State Million Futurity and the $1 million Ed Burke Million Futurity. The three races are open to all 2-year-olds.

The $100,000-added Golden State Million is run in the fall at a distance of 400 yards, the same distance as the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity. The $250,000-added Ed Burke Million is run in June over a distance of 350 yards.

With this historic lineup of million dollar races, Los Alamitos Race Course is the only track in California of any race breed to annually offer three $1 million races. The Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity, the Golden State Million and the Ed Burke Million also comprise the $1 million Los Alamitos Bonanza. The Los Alamitos Bonanza offers a $1 million bonus to be shared by the owner and nominator of any horse that can sweep the three races. Unlike any other bonus programs, the Los Alamitos Bonanza pays out its $1 million award in one lump sum, as opposed to yearly installment payments spread over 20 to 25 years.
