Oak Tree meet ends on Sunday Oct. 31 and the regular Hollywood Park meets starts on Wednesday, Nov. 3


NEVERSAIDIWASSWEET: Ellis Park invader for trainer Kristin Mulhall was brought here strictly to run on the grass and beat a good group of 2yo fillies wire-to-wire; this girl looks to have some talent on the grass, look for the move up and another score.

AMERICAS DREAMING: Received a goofy ride by jockey Rosario as he had this filly in good striking position right up with the pace and then at the ¾ pole just dropped her back to last and then came on again just missing the show by a head. We will give this one another shot.

LICHTENSTEIN: Baffert trainee was last seen running at Santa Anita in March; he was bet like a good thing and just did fail to run down the lone speed losing the head bob on the line. This one will be a good single next time out. $$$$$

NEREID: First time starter out of the John Shirreffs barn – you know the trainer of the mighty Zenyatta, got bumped hard at the start and had to take back to dead last, at the half mile point in this 6½ furlong sprint for 2yo fillies she launched a Zenyatta-type move and just stormed home to be a clear second behind the highly regarded winner Zazu. This girl is a must follow up the ladder as the distances get longer. $$$$$

TIZ ARGENT: Was exiting our HTW list and we used him as a single in the late pick four, it looked like it was over for him at the start as he had to be steadied hard after the start and was dead last. He came wide into the stretch, angled out again in the drive and somehow just shot home to get up at the wire in what was a super effort. We will keep this up-and-comer on our list.

MRS. CARD: First time starter out of the low profile Sam Semkin barn (Sam can pop with a long shot), broke slow but settled nicely. She made a big wide run to get to the front in the lane but could not hold off the fast closing winner but was a clear second in what was a very good effort for this 32k maiden claimer. We will take a shot with her next time out.

JOB BOSS: Hard trying gelding for underrated trainer Thomas Bell had all the worst of it in this 25k 11/16 route as he was stuck down on the inside chasing a lone speeder but somehow kept going and just did miss by a nostril on the line.

STUNNING ALLY: Julio Canani comebacker was last seen winning here at odds on back in November of ’09, she was well meant and well bet as she came back running and held off the hard trying HTW alert horse U Turn Me Crazy by a head. This filly can flat out run, and we will be all over her next time out. $$$$$

BATHING BEAUTY: Looked like a beauty out on the track but just had no shot at the runaway even money winner but she ran her race and was a nice second despite trouble. This girl will be a real good single next time out. $$$$$
