Los Alamitos Race Course has extended the deadlines for the original payments for 2016’s Grade 1 Golden State Million and Los Alamitos Two Million futurities. The deadlines have been extended 30 days, to December 1 and December 15, respectively.

The nomination extension was announced in a letter sent by Los Alamitos owner Ed Allred to horsemen, nominators and media outlets.

“Because of certain irregularities still being investigated in our recent futurity and derby trials, we are taking this action to clear the air so that nominators will have confidence that our races will be fair and provide equal opportunity,” Allred wrote.

“Horsemen should be aware that beginning in 2015, there will be zero tolerance of Clenbuterol at Los Alamitos, enforced by hair testing in all participants in major stakes races and spot checking on a daily basis of our racing programs,” he continued. “Blood testing will not stop Clenbuterol abuse.”
