Leading trainer Paul Jones will send out the 2002 world champion, Whosleavingwho, and Meteoric in the Grade 1, $100,000 Go Man Go Handicap on Saturday night at Los Alamitos.

Whosleavingwho and Meteoric each prepared for their fall stakes campaigns with 350-yard allowance victories at Los Alamitos. On July 29, Whosleavingwho won a nose decision in 17.41 seconds, and on Aug. 15 Meteoric scored a half-length victory in 17.60 seconds after being bumped at the start.

"Both horses came out of their races really well," Jones said. "Whosleavingwho looks as good as he ever has."

In 2003, Whosleavingwho raced to Grade 1 wins in the Los Alamitos Winter Championship, Spencer Childers Championship, and the Go Man Go. His allowance win was his first start since finishing in fourth place in the Champion of Champions on Dec. 13.

Meteoric's allowance win was his first start since being second by a nose in the Los Alamitos Winter Championship on Feb. 28. As a juvenile in 2002, he was second in the Los Alamitos Million and third in the All American Futurity.

AB What a Runner, winner of the 2002 All American Futurity, comes into the Go Man Go with three Grade 1 wins at Los Alamitos in the past year, the Los Alamitos Derby, the Mildred Vessels Invitational, and the Charger Bar Handicap.

Brimmerton earned an invitation to the Champion of Champions on Dec. 11 with his All American Derby win on Sunday. He also won the Grade 1 Rainbow Derby.

Joining Brimmerton will be Ruidoso Futurity winner All About Ease and Jess Satin, who finished in sixth place in the $2 million All American Futurity. They are eligible to the Golden State Million and the Los Alamitos Million.

Joiner will continue his New Mexico operation at Sunland Park this winter.

Trainer John Bassett, winner of two All American Futurities in the past six runnings, is moving his entire stable to Los Alamitos this week to compete on a year-round schedule. One of the horses Bassett is shipping is Have a Coronary, seventh-place finisher in the All American Futurity.

Have a Coronary will be pointed to the Golden State Million and the Los Alamitos Million.
