Champion of Champions finalist Well And Good returns in Sunday's 550-yard Barbra B Handicap at Los Alamitos.

Ed Allred's Well And Good, a homebred 5-year-old son of champion Separatist, is one of eight aged runners entered in Sunday's 550-yard, $20,000 Barbra B Handicap at Los Alamitos.

Well And Good will be dropping in class off of his eighth-place finish in the 440-yard, $600,000 Champion of Champions (G1) at Los Alamitos on December 12. The gelding is coming off of a 4-year-old season in which he ran second in both the 400-yard Vessels Maturity (G1) and 400-yard Spencer Childers Calfiornia Breeders' Championship (RG1).

Well And Good drew post 8 and will be ridden by Gary Boag for trainer Scott Willoughby. The gelding's seven opponents include recent stakes winners Front And Center and He Is The Risingstar. The 125-pound high weight, Front And Center is a 5-year-old Walk Thru Fire gelding trained by Mark Skeen for owners Ronald Skeen and Fawna Knight. Front And Center brings in a four-race win streak that includes the December 19 First Down Dash Handicap.

Front And Center drew post 6 and will be ridden by Tony Guymon.

He Is The Risingstar is a 4-year-old Mr Jess Perry gelding racing for Fulton Quien Sabe Ranches from the barn of Paul Jones. He Is The Risingstar will be making his first start since December 11, when he won the 550-yard Paul Ford Handicap.
