Bad starts prevented Flying Fig from winning two seven-figure futurities at Los Alamitos earlier this year.\r\nThe filly&rsquo;s last chance for glory in such a race arrives in Friday&rsquo;s Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity, the track&rsquo;s richest race, and one that trainer Dennis Ekins thinks she can win &ndash; with a better start.\r\n&ldquo;She&rsquo;s run just brilliantly on the end,&rdquo; he said Wednesday morning. &ldquo;She&rsquo;s got to get away clean. If she can do that, she can be very competitive.&rdquo;\r\nFlying Fig is the only horse to qualify for all three seven-figure futurities at Los Alamitos this year. She was second, by a half-length, in the $1,064,000 Ed Burke Million Futurity in June after veering out at the start. She was bumped at the start of the $1,230,000 Golden State Million Futurity last month and lost by three-quarters of a length.\r\n&ldquo;If you&rsquo;re not clean away from the gate, it doesn&rsquo;t matter,&rdquo; Ekins said. &ldquo;You can overcome a lot but not enough to win a race.&rdquo;\r\nConsidering the way she has finished in major races, Ekins thinks Flying Fig can win the Los Alamitos Two Million with a good start.\r\n&ldquo;We&rsquo;re hoping to be even with them 50 yards away from there,&rdquo; he said.\r\nOwned by Pete Parrella&rsquo;s Legacy Ranch, Flying Fig rebounded from the Golden State Million loss to win a time trial for the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity on Nov. 20, finishing 400 yards in 19.46 seconds, the sixth-fastest qualifying time.\r\n&ldquo;In order to come back in these futurities, you have to have a good horse and you have to stay together pretty good,&rdquo; Ekins said. &ldquo;She seems to be doing awfully well. We&rsquo;ve had her on the track several times, and I think she&rsquo;s coming up to it good.&rdquo;\r\nThe 10 finalists include fastest qualifier More Than You Know, who was fourth in the Ed Burke Million Futurity in June; One Sweet Jess, who won the Golden State Million; and Hot Hitter, the winner of the Governor&rsquo;s Cup Futurity in July who was third in the Golden State Million. One Sweet Jess and Hot Hitter have the respect of Ekins.\r\n&ldquo;These colts that have come back are awfully nice horses,&rdquo; he said.
