HAPPY THANKSGIVING

HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1 (early post today)

The feature goes in the first race today the 100k Hollywood Prevue stakes. We have five runners listed to run. Four 2yo colts, all out of the Bob Baffert barn and one filly out of the Peter Miller barn. This should be illegal! Baffert has two in  here for sure that he is pointing to the Kentucky Derby; No. 3 Z Big Apple who exits our HTW list and No. 5 Super Ninety Nine who was entered in the BC sprint but was a late scratch opting for this easier spot. 3-5

Race 2

No. 2 Hanserella is wheeled back in just five days. No. 5 Madelineispickin sports a solid 6  furlong work for this her fist start. No. 8 Missdang Sally woke up in her first try at this 40k maiden claiming level in her last start. 2-5**-8

Race 3

No. 2 Scooter Bird was sent off at .40 cents on the dollar in her one and only start at Del Mar but she hopped at the start and lost her chance. Sadler gave her time off and she will be the one to beat. No. 4 Fiftyshadesofhay  ran second behind the freakish winner last time out and will be the main concern. 2-4

Race 4

No. 1 Tasty Treat likes this 6 furlong turf course and will rebound off her last start as she usually does. No. 5 Catienus Gold will be right on the pace with Tasty. 1-5

Race 5

No. 4 Idontrollonshabbos looks set for his best with the drop to the level of his last win. No. 4 Mr. Why Why lost by a neck at Santa Anita at this level in his last start and now gets an extra furlong. No. 5 The Bien’s Gift also likes this track and looks set in this his second off the layoff. 3-4-5

Exacta box 3-4-5

Race 6

No. 3 Byrony has been facing much tougher and now is dropped into this much easier spot to regain her confidence. No. 5 Hard To Resist’s last win came here at this same turf distance. No. 6 Plaza De Indias ran good here six days ago finishing second behind a real good prospect. 3-5-6

Tri box 3-5-6

Race 7

Richard Baltas scored big with a first time starter over the weekend and he sends out No. 2 Melanistic who is very live at a price in this spot as she comes off the grass. No. 4 Church Avenue is the speed and will be playing catch me if you can. 2-4

Race 8

In the next to last leg of the huge pick six carryover on Thanksgiving day you will need to go at least four deep in here as I will be using No. 4 Smoken Legacy, No. 5 Shadow Runner, No. 7 You Know I Know and No. 8 A Toast to You, all have the right running style to win this. 4-5-7-8

Race 9

In the last leg of the pick six you will need to go at least 5 deep using No. 5 Sacred Ovation, No. 7 Flew Flicker both of whom will be part of the early pace. No. 9 Primed and ready, first time starter who is very live, No. 10 Mentalize who you may single on one ticket and No. 11 Warrior James who gets Bejarano in his first start with maiden claimers. 5-7-9 and 10-11 are the two best if using just two.

6th 3-5

GOLDEN GATE
