The $40,000-added Bank of America Los Alamitos Championship Challenge (G3) originally scheduled to run August 8 has been postponed one week, and will now be run on Friday, August 14, at the Orange County racetrack. 

Entries will be taken on Tuesday, August 11. 

The race, one of four regional races in the Bank of America Championship division within the Bank of America Racing Challenge program that carries a grade, also carries a berth to the Bank of America Challenge Championship (G1), set to be held October 24 at The Downs at Albuquerque. 

The postponement occurred through great cooperation between AQHA, Los Alamitos management and horsemen, and is due to a conflict brought about by a newly-implemented rule that was put in place to increase the transparency of the safety and welfare of equine athletes.
