Race 1

There is a ton of early speed in this 1 1/16 route, No. 4 Cape
Diver looks to have the ability to rate right off the hot early pace, she has
won two of five at this distance and both were here at Hollywood. 4

Race 2

No. 1 Starstruck Kristen gets her second start off the layoff,
she finds a field with a lot of early speed and the extra half a furlong this
time can only help, she has a lot of longshot potential. No. 7 Kentucky Outing
loves to run second with 10 place finishes from 15 lifetime starts including six
of seven at this 6 furlong distance. 1-7

Race 3

No. 1 Adebayor gets back on the grass where he ran a good third
one race back, his trainer pops at around 35% dirt to turf. No. 3 Who’s Your
Widady is a first time starter who just may be live on the grass being sired by
War Chant. No. 7 Dixie Passion has the speed to take these wire-to-wire and he
just did miss on this course by a head in his last start. No. 4 Dohnster will be
part of the early pace and No. 8 Escaping The Storm is a live comebacker for
trainer Hess. 1-7 with 3-4-8

Race 4

No. 4 Voodoo’s Vision has good tracking speed and she gets a
double jump in class by the sneaky Canani after losing by a head in her last
start, she also gets a jock change to Pedroza who is one of Julio’s go-to
riders, she looks like a real good play. 4

Race 6

This race call for the all button and we will use that button
when playing the pick three, our main contenders look like No. 1 Miss Heather
Lee who comes from a win early sire Trippi who has four winners from four
starters including two stakes winners. No. 2 Holloween Candy is sired by the
great Argentina horse Candy Ride, she shows a very good 5 furlong work on June
27. No. 3 Back Nine Doc also has win early breeding and trainer Doug O’Neill
has had a lot of success with his 2yo at this meet. 1-2-3

Race 7

No. 3 Savu out of the Drysdale barn looks to be an up and comer,
he also sends out No. 7 Gretsky who comes off a nice win. No. 8 Cleisthenes is a
very live import for trainer Sadler. No. 6 Fort Sumter is a lightly raced 3yo
gelding who will like the longer distance.


Race 8

Speed rules these 2yo maiden claiming races at 5½ furlongs but
there is a big lack of it in this race. No. 4 Fair Kisses showed some early foot
in her first start but will need to move forward, No. 11 Mireya Diaz looks like
she may have more speed than she has shown and jockey Stra will gun her out of
the gate. The one that looks like she may motor today is No. 7 Deceptively who
had a ton of trouble in her first start as she hopped at the start and was far
back, she was well bet in that race and did make up ground late, look for her to
pop the gate today and not stop. 7 with 4-11
