When Jaime Gomez was growing up in Tala Jalisco, Mexico, the best part of his day was when the school bell rang and he could race home, meet his father, Bauvilio, and go to the ranch where Bauvilio trained quarter horses. "School let out at 2 and by 3 I had my hands on a horse and I was next to my dad," Jaime says. "It was the part of the day I dreamed about."

It was a week of mixed emotions for trainer Jaime Gomez. He did well enough, placing two horses among the top five finishers in the $150,000 Governor's Cup Futurity Saturday, a 350-yard race that showcased some of the top 2-year-olds in the West. But he was disappointed when one of his 7-5 favorites, Las Alamitos, threw a shoe as it left the starting gate and finished fifth. The previous night, he watched as his former understudy, Jose Flores, saddled the winner in the $128,000 Vessels Maturity.

The gang problem has baffled social scientists and police for years as they've wondered whether there's a solution.

Trainer Jaime Gomez finished 1-2 in the $325,900 Kindergarten Futurity for the second year in a row Saturday night when Vachetta, the 5-2 second choice, defeated Check This Runner and seven others at Los Alamitos. Owned by Beltran Ranch LLC and ridden by Alejandro Luna, who was earning his first win in the Grade I, Vachetta, a 2-year-old Corona Cartel filly, is now unbeaten in three starts. She broke extremely fast and was never seriously menaced while completing the 300 yards in 15.26 seconds.

Before Saturday night's $385,600 Kindergarten Futurity at Los Alamitos, trainer Jaime Gomez said he thought Secret Card--a 2-year-old Raise A Secret filly--would run even better than she had two weeks earlier when she was the fastest qualifier for the Grade I event. Breaking well from the outside post in the field of 10, Secret Card--part of a three-horse entry that was the even-money favorite--proved her trainer right as she easily defeated 9-1 shot Copper Buff by 1 1/2 lengths.

The Patriots (19-4-3), ranked No. 1 in the region by The Times, advance to the semifinals for the first time in school history. The game was marred by five second-half yellow cards, two major injuries, a tardy referee and consequent 35-minute delay, and the ejection of John Ortega of Birmingham for a second yellow card in the 76th minute.
