For all of the victories Paul Jones has had at Los Alamitos, there is at least one race that has escaped the quarter horse track's dominant trainer. Jones has yet to win the Ed Burke Million Futurity, a Grade 1 stakes for 2-year-olds at 350 yards that will be run for the 55th time tonight. In the past, the Burke has also been called the Pomona Futurity and the PCQHRA Futurity. The Burke, which will be worth $1.145 million this year, is the first leg of the Los Alamitos Bonanza.

Following his victories in the second division of the Oceanside Stakes and La Jolla Handicap, the 3-year-old Verglas colt lagged early, then accelerated nicely when asked by jockey Corey Nakatani and went on to beat Toasted, a 6-1 shot, by a neck.
