Burgart’s morning line for the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity will also be announced during the show.

The Champion of Champions will be headed by Dunn Ranch’s two-time defending winner Apollitical Pence and Downtime Enterprises Inc., Dean Frey, and Billy Smith’s reigning world champion Danjer.  Full brothers Powerful Favorite and Bomb Cyclone, both owned by Rosenthal Ranch, and 2021 champion 3-year-old Empressum are among the other top contenders in the Champion of Champions.
