Edited press release
Thirty-one 2-year-olds posted official workouts at Los Alamitos on Saturday, topped by four juveniles owned and bred by all-time leading breeder Ed Allred.
The first set of 2-year-olds to work featured a yet-to-be-named colt by Walk Thru Fire out of the multiple stakes winner Moonlight Corona, and a Stel Corona filly named Fiesty. Trained by James Glenn Jr. for Allred, the pair looked sharp in their first works, with the colt covering the 220 yards from the inside post in :12.30, the fastest work of the day. Fiesty covered the trip in :12.50 from the outside.
The unraced colt is a full brother to 2013 Golden State Juvenile Invitational Stakes runner-up Stroller, while Fiesty is a full sister to 2015 champion aged mare Quirky and 2016 Governor's Cup Futurity (RG2) finalist A Bit Quirky.
The second set to work on Saturday also featured a pair of 2-year-olds owned and bred by Allred. The Stel Corona gelding Charter Flight worked 220 yards in :12.5 from the inside post, while New Hot Look worked evenly from the outside post in :12.5. A gelding by Walk Thru Fire, New Hot Look is a full brother to 2016 Golden State Million Futurity fifth-place finisher Renewed and four-time stakes winner New Look, whose victories include the 2012 El Primero Del Ano Derby. Charter Flight is out of the mare Jetsetter and from the family of Jetsetting Girl, the dam of major stakes runners Gulfstream Five, Bridlewood and Girl Secret.
Another 2-year-old from the family of Jetsetting Girl is Wild Wonder, a colt trained by Charles Treece who delivered a nice-looking :12.5 drill from the outside post. Sired by Stel Corona, Wild Wonder is out of California Wildfire, whose granddam is the notable blue-hen mare Jetsetting Girl. California Wildfire has developed into a solid producer and her progeny include Chicanery, a winner of more than $128,000 and a qualifier to the Los Alamitos Super Derby, Golden State Derby, Golden State Million Futurity and Governor’s Cup Futurity and Derby. Wild Wonder is owned by a partnership that includes Cindy Davidson, Linda Cannon, et al.
