HOLLYWOOD PARK

 

CALL ME HONCHO: Barry Abrams homebred by his top sire Unusual Heat was trying the grass for the first time and was somehow let go at almost 20-1, he made a big late move and just did fail to pick up the place. This guy can turf and will be a very good play next time out going long on the grass.

CAN’T TOPPER: Mike Mitchell comebacker was sent off at 70¢ on the dollar and won by more than 10 lengths as Mike put one over here as there were no claims, look for this girl to show up in one of those starter allowance claim proof races and score a repeat win.

RAPPORT: It seems like layoff horses are the name of the game as this girl was last seen running up the track at Saratoga last August. She showed up here in the Bob Baffert barn and Baffert must have figured out what her problem was as she won like a good thing.

MISTER JAZZ: Broke inward and dueled between horses but got shuffled back into the turn, he had to swing out into the stretch and ran on in game fashion to pick up the place and was almost six lengths clear of the third place finisher. $$$$$

GLENDIVE: Was in from Turf Paradise and look to have a big shot in this flat mile on the grass but she got squeezed back at the start and was dead last on this speed favoring course, she made up a ton of ground and came on strong for the show dough.

DYNAMIC RANGE: I just love it when trainer Mike Mitchell claims these 1½ horses as he did when he put up 40k for this guy. He must have a good spot in mind so when he shows up take notice especially if he is going in a marathon on the green.

SHEEZA BEAST: Just another horse off a long layoff that ran big time and this girl was almost 6-1 but gamely prevailed in this 11/16 maiden claimer as she battled tooth and nail the entire distance getting up with a late surge in what was a super effort.

IF YOU KNEW SUSIE: Filly has really come to life since stretching out in distance and proved she can handle the grass with this win, she could move up and repeat on the green.

BELLA PALOOZA: 2yo filly first time starter was just hammered at the widows going off at 80¢ on the dollar and she won like it, keep an eye on her.

GATORS AT FONZS/CHK CHK BOOM: Ran second and third behind Bella Palooza and these two girls could come back and make a nice exacta out of a race that could end up to be a key race.

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

HIGHWAY BANDIT: Was making his move down on the rail as he eked through a tight spot while being checked, he had to check again while shifting out for some clear sailing, once clear he just shot into another gear and stormed by the front runner and won going away in an eye catching move. $$$$$

CATA MIA: 2yo first time starter got bet early but then was very fractious at the gate and unseated his rider and ran off, and very seldom do you see them hold up a race, wait to catch the horse bring her back, put her back in the gate and just watch her spring from the gate and go wire-to-wire, well that is just what happened.

THE TOUR DIRECTOR: Was squeezed between horses at the start and had to drop back to last, he circled five wide when making his run and somehow ran them all down on the wire in what was a top effort for a 20k maiden claimer, look for this guy to find a good spot going long on the grass for underrated trainer William Delia. $$$$$

EAST FROM WEST: Looked perfectly spotted in this 5 furlong turf sprint but he hopped at the start losing at least four lengths on the field, he made huge late run and just did lose by a half length.
