HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

No. 2 Through My Eyes is a first time starter with the hot combo of jockey Tyler Baze and trainer Jeff Mullins. No. 5 Winninrulz drops into a maiden claimer and looks best of the ones that have run. 2-5

Race 2

It will either be play on No. 5 Black Witch, a Bob Baffert first time starter for owner Mercedes Stables, or hit the all button. 5

Race 3

No. 1 Byrama won here at this 6 furlong turf distance back in June and now comes back sporting a solid work on the 24th and she will get a good setup with all the front speed. 1

Race 4

We have jockey musical chairs in this race as Bejarano jumps ship or walked the plank on No. 1 Game On Dude and now will ride No. 2 Richard’s Kid and the Dude will get Mike Smith as these two pro’s battle it out again. 1-2

Race 5

No. 1 Scorpion Time had a bad trip in his last start and will go better today. No. 4 Slammer Time just missed by a head here on the 10th at this mile turf distance. No. 8 Mr. Make Believe was a close third in the same race. 1-4-8

Exacta box 3-8-10

Race 7

No. 1 Troy Story gets Bejarano and a turn back to six furlongs. No. 6 Valley of Kings has been working like a runner at the Gate since arriving from New Orleans. No. 7 In a Wine Tizzy will rate today. 1-6-7

Race 8

This is like a stakes race and a very hard one to find the winner. Baffert sends out two in No. 1 Jaycito and the very speedy No. 2 Blueskiesnrainbows. No. 3 Golden Itiz has a very nice 6 furlong work for this on the 25th as does No. 7 Java Man. 1-2-3-7

Race 9

Tom Proctor has a good one two punch in here with No. 2 Creditcardroulette and No. 4 Purim’s Dancer both look to have a big shot. No. 10 Pogonip exits our HTW list off a good maiden breaker on the grass in her first turf try. 2-4-10

Race 10

We really need to go deep in here using No. 1 Northern Glow who exits a big key race, No. 4 Warren’s Cole with live long shot jockey Eliska Kubinova, No. 10 Rockin Cherokee a Hastings invader with good speed, No. 13 Mind the Master who drops into this lowest level of maiden claimers and No. 14 Midnight Raven. 1-4-10-13-14

.10 cent super box 1-4-10-13-14 ($12.00)

Race 2

No. 2 Soldiers Point has the hot combo of Mason and Beato. No. 4 Cardiffbythesea is the stablemate of Soldiers Point. No. 5 Quick Enough will be the one to beat. 2-4-5

Double

1st 1-5

2nd 2-4-5

Race 3

No. 1 Ciao Bella Luna won her first two starts like a good thing and has worked great since. No. 6 French Alps has also won her first two. 1-6

Race 4

No. 1 Mr. Sierra will be out winging it from the rail. No. 4 Top Hawker will be right with him as these two could circle the field. 1-4

Race 5

No. 8 Classical Hy looks to have found a home here at this level of racing and is perfectly spotted off the win. 8

Race 6

No. 1 Olympic Golddigger will fall into a good stalking positing. No. 3 Redmond Ridge will test his speed on the grass. No. 8 Mr. Reaburn will like the grass and the trip and may be a good price. No. 9 Exultant will be out winging it with Redmond. 1-3-8-9

Race 9

No. 6 Lincoln Launch reversed his style last time out and went back to back. No. 7 Midnight Con lost his shot at the start in his first try here and with a clean break today will be right there. 6-7
