Morning Snow returns at Los Alamitos


Morning Snow, a two-time Grade 1 futurity winner last year, makes her 3-year-old debut in the second of three 400-yard trials to the Grade 1 Golden State Derby on Friday night at Los Alamitos.

Morning Snow, a winner of 5 of 7 starts, is making her first start since finishing second in her Los Alamitos Million trial Nov. 29 at Los Alamitos.

Trainer Donna McArthur campaigned Morning Snow to wins in the Grade 1, $361,000 Kindergarten and the Grade 1, $436,000 Ed Burke Futurity at Los Alamitos last summer. Those two wins provided the bulk of her $356,352 in earnings.

Racing against Morning Snow is Grade 2 Las Primera Del Ano Derby winner Ipomea.
