LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. (AP) Unforgettable U cruised to a 9 1/2-length victory in the $50,250 feature on opening day of the winter meet Thursday at Los Alamitos.
Ridden by Edwin Maldonado, Unforgettable U ran six furlongs in 1:08.67 and paid $4.60, $2.60 and $2.40 as the 13-10 second choice.
Finest City returned 42.60 and $2.40 as the 6-5 favorite. Windy Forecast was another 1 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $3.80 to show.
