Edited press release
Based on her first qualifying drill, Better Google Me could be trending on all search engines, as the One Famous Eagle filly posted the fastest of 25 drills during a busy morning of 2-year-old works Saturday at Los Alamitos.
Owned by Veronica Gail Worth and trained by Paul Jones, Better Google Me covered the 220 yards in :12.2 while working from the outside post in company with Abigail Kawananakoa’s Still Friends.
Bred in California by Vessels Stallion Farm, Better Google Me is out of the Mr Jess Perry mare Better Be On Me. Better Google Me is a half-sister to multiple Grade 1 stakes winner Separate Bet.
The promising filly Still Friends posted a nice work as well, as she was one of three 2-year-olds with a :12.3 clocking. Still Friends is by Foose out of the stakes winning mare Forgive Him. One of the top young broodmares in the sport, Forgive Him is the dam of Forget It, a three-time derby winner in 2015. Forget It, a full brother to Still Friends, won the Grade 1 Southern California Derby, El Primero Del Ano Derby, and Governor’s Cup Derby last year.
The other two workouts that matched Still Friends' time were posted by a pair of juveniles trained by James Glenn Jr. for owner Ed Allred. Flying Right, a filly by Stel Corona and out of Jetsetter, posted her :12.3 while working to the inside of Still Trying, a colt by Kiddy Up and out of Down Not Out, who had the other :12.3 clocking on Saturday.
The morning of 2-year-old works was a busy one, as a total of 25 2-year-olds recorded their first workouts. Jones, the reigning AQHA champion trainer, worked six other runners in addition to Better Google Me and Still Trying.
Jones' group featured the Oregon-bred First Down Dash colt Fly First Dash, whose mother is the great producer Shirleys Strawfly. Fly First Dash is a half-brother to 2006 AQHA champion 3-year-old gelding Strawkins and Grade 1 winner BF Farm Boss.
Trainer Jose Moreno worked the Walk Thru Fire colt He Too Looks Hot, a $105,000 buy at the 2015 Los Alamitos Equine Sale. Out of the outstanding mare Look Her Over, He Too Looks Hot worked 220 yards in :12.5. He’s a full brother to 2014 Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity winner He Looks Hot and stakes winner Once Over.
The Guillermo Morales-trained Shes Pourin was one of the standouts to work on Tuesday morning. Bred by Bobby Cox, the Dominyun filly worked 220 yards in :12.60. She’s a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Favorite Cartel and to the talented runners Henoshersecret, Hes Regal, and Shescheckinumout.
Two-year-old gate works continue at Los Alamitos on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Videos are available online at http://www.losalamitos.com/Workouts.aspx.
