TRJ—The Racing Journal wishes everyone a joyous, safe, and win-filled New Year. Now, get out to the racetrack and make some money!

Tonight is opening night of the 2011 Los Alamitos Race Course meet. The 61st racing season gets underway with a 10-race program kicking off the 2011 Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred meeting. Tonight’s opening night feature has 10 Quarter Horses running in the $20,000 Holiday Handicap for 3-year-olds at 350 yards.
