Los Alamitos Race Course conducted the Champions Pick Four wager on December 10-12 featuring four of the biggest races of the year. The Champions Pick Four was decided over a three-day span and consisted of the $1,509,324 Los Alamitos Million Futurity on December 10, the $500,000 Champion of Champions on December 11 and the $164,000 Marathon National and $130,000 Southern California Derby on December 12.

Wagering on the Champions Pick Four closed prior to the running of the Los Alamitos Million on Friday, December 10. There were 61 winning tickets in a pool of $48,482. The Champions Pick Four paid out on Sunday, following the Southern California Derby. Ocean Runaway and Prankster CF were the favorites in the Los Alamitos Million and Marathon National, respectively, while Hawkish was the second choice at 2-1 in the Southern California Derby. The spoiler, however, was Cash For Kas, who won the Champion of Champions at 21-1 odds.
