Q-Racing Journal

Leonardo and Javier Olmos’ The Streakin Clean comes off a solid second in the $100,000 Charger Bar Handicap (G2) against distaffers to take on males in the $25,000 Cypress Handicap over 350 yards on Friday night at Los Alamitos.

The Streakin Clean (Streakin La Jolla-Theslatesclean by Corona Cocktail) was second by one-half length in the 400-yard Charger Bar after fighting for the lead for most of the race.

Trained by Jaime Gomez, The Streakin Clean showed her quickness two starts ago when she won the 100-yard, $16,000 Hawkish Overnight Handicap in a track record :06.40 for the rarely run distance.

The Streakin Clean started her winter stakes campaign back in November in the $25,000 Las Damas Handicap (G3) for fillies and mares. She finished third, one-half length behind the highly regarded Significant Heart and just missed grabbing second place.

Trainer Paul Jones saddles three of the eight horses in the Cypress Handicap: Henoshersecret, Deepintheheartoftexas and Foose Is Loose.

Abigail Kawananakoa’s Henosehersecret (No Secrets Here-Shenosehercorona by Corona Cartel) is Grade 1 tested and comes off a close second in an allowance race. He was the fastest qualifier to the 2013, $205,900 El Primero Del Ano Derby (G2) and came back to finish a game second by a nose in the finals.

Wayne Shizuru’s Deepintheheartoftexas (Corona Cartel-Rousing Encore by First Down Dash) steps up to the stakes ranks after finishing on the board in each of his four 2014 starts, all allowance races. He raced to two close wins from those four starts.

Owned and bred by Jones and Thompson Racing Inc., Foose Is Loose (Foose-Shescheckinumout by Check Him Out) was second behind Moonist in the $189,238 Governor’s Cup Derby (RG3) for Cal-breds back in July. In his most recent race on December 7, he held on for second in a 330-yard, $12,000 allowance race at Los Alamitos.
