HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

No. 3 On Golden Pawn is a first time starter for Marty Jones who sports some very good 6 furlong works for this. No. 6 Shamefully Sinful exits our HTW list and gets an extra half a furlong to make her late run today. 3-6

Race 2

No. 3 Tribal Custom has two wins in five starts and both came here. No. 1 Myntz Connection and No. 6 Miss Robyn both get drops in class and both will be very dangerous. 1-3-6

Double

1st 3-6

2nd 1-3-6

Race 3

No. 2 Dynamize gets off the grass and gets the huge drop from a straight maiden to this 20k maiden claimer. No. 5 Ancient Stone could get very brave at this level if able to clear in the early going. No. 8 Triple Feature looks live at first asking in what is a very soft field of maiden claimers. 2-5-8

Race 4

No. 3 Daylight Storm comes off a long long layoff and drops to the bottom for trainer Ted West who puts jockey Chris Russell in the irons, he was one tough horse when last seen. No. 4 Cragmont is in good form and the one to beat. No. 6 Traweek gets a little drop in class and Maldo rides, he was on for this one’s win one race back. No. 10 Half Dome Dude continues his descent down the ladder. 3-4-6-10

Race 5

No. 1 Wilkinson’s last win came here on the grass last May. No. 2 Lucayan is a classy looking French import for Neil Dryadle. No. 5 Dubai You X Y Z had his prep and is ready for his best. 1-2-5

Race 6

There is plenty of early speed in here and that could set things up for the two Italian closers No. 6 Sharp Bella and No. 7 Italian Baba and for good measure we will toss in No. 8 Gelila. 6-7-8

Race 7

Trainer Mike Puype re-claimed No. 3 Muchos Besos for 10k and shoots him to the moon in this 40k claimer, what does he think he has? No. 7 Hawkedon’s work here on April 28th says let me run big time. 3-7

Exacta box 3-7 and win and place 7**

Race 8

Straight Bred straight maidens go a mile on the grass. No. 6 Something Unusual ran good in his first try going long at this mile turf distance at Santa Anita and was coming on late finishing third. No. 7 Red Globe looks set off a real nice work pattern for Drysdale. 6-7

Pick four

6th 6-7-8

7th 7

8th 6-7
