Higher Fire, who was an unlucky loser when a troubled third in the Kindergarten Futurity in her stakes debut on May 14, made no mistakes Saturday night and won the $1.145-million Ed Burke Memorial Futurity at Los Alamitos. A 2-year-old Walk Thru Fire filly trained by Jaime Gomez and ridden by J.R. Ramirez, Higher Fire, who went off at 6-1, gave owner-breeders Denny Boer and James Streelman, who race as Dutch Masters III, their first win in the Grade I Burke. The victory was worth $464,100.

Qualifying for the $1,313,700 Los Alamitos Million may have been more difficult for Meteoric than winning California's richest race of 2002 will be for the Idaho-bred. Running over a sloppy track that produced slower times after a downpour earlier in the evening, the 2-year-old gelding earned his way into the field of 10 with a facile victory in the ninth and final trial Nov. 29.

Poly Gyve One Corona will be trainer Elena Andrade's first Grade I contender when the Corona Czech gelding enters the starting gate for the $325,000 Kindergarten Futurity on Saturday night at Los Alamitos. Andrade, the wife of Oscar Andrade, a former jockey who was paralyzed from the waist down after being involved in a spill at the track on Sept. 27, 2001, probably will be nervous.

If trainer Jaime Gomez is right about Secret Card, the rest of the field in the $385,600 Kindergarten Futurity tonight at Los Alamitos is in serious trouble. "I think she'll run even better [in the Futurity]," Gomez said of the 2-year-old filly, who was the fastest qualifier for what so far is the richest race of the meet. Owned by the Dutch Masters III partnership of Denny Boer and Dr. James Streelman, Secret Card won her Futurity trial heat by 1 1/4 lengths and covered the 300 yards in 15.

To say the least, jockey Laffit Pincay had gone a long time between victories in the Cinema Handicap. Not since scoring with Bad 'N Big in 1977 had the world's winningest rider won the Grade III Cinema until he got the money Sunday at Hollywood Park with 4-1 fourth choice Sligo Bay.

For all of his success, Paul Jones is missing one thing from his resume. The nation's leading quarter horse trainer, Jones has yet to win a Kindergarten Futurity, the first Grade I of the year for 2-year-olds and a fixture on the schedule at Los Alamitos. Jones, 38, will try to change that tonight when he sends out fastest qualifier Looking For Chicks and longshots La Jolla Ca and Sassy Corona in the $350,000 race, the first leg of the Los Alamitos Bonanza.

Polling 62 of the 87 votes, Tailor Fit has been named world champion quarter horse for 2001, becoming the eighth multiple winner of the award and only the third horse to win the title in non-consecutive years. Tailor Fit was voted world champion in 1999, then won only two of five starts in 2000 as the undefeated A Ransom won the title. A Ransom finished second in the 2001 polling with 21 votes. Four horses--Hawkinson, Pivotal Decision, Stoli and Tres Seis--received one vote apiece.

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."
