HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

Trainer Adam Kitchingman wheels back 2yo No. 1 Ninnavee in just eight days after showing good early speed in her first start. Trainer Walther Solis who has already won one of these 2yo races sends out first time starter No. 2 Patty Wack who looks like a runner. He also sends out No. 6 Time for Angie with Valdivia on and he rode Solis’ other 2yo winner. 1-2-6

Race 2

No. 1 Affrettando drops into a claimer and gets the rail and Maldo, he will sit and make a late run at the fading speed. No. 4 Sanibel Sid could wake up in this spot at a price with the move to the synthetic surface. 1-4

Double

1st 1-2-6

2nd 1-4

Race 3

No. 2 Toomanytomatoes is 2-for-2 on this turf course and gets her first start off the Hollendorfer claim. No. 1 Thermal Nermal is the speed on the trail showing her tail around the course. 1-2

Race 4

There is a ton of early speed in here and that will set things up for No. 5 Mangita who exits our HTW list and No. 6 Grand Corredora, both will be making late runs at the tiring front runners. 5-6

Race 5

No. 6 Turn On the Pumps looks set for his best second off the layoff and his one win came on this turf course. No. 2 Waitwaitdonttellme has a real good work since his maiden breaker going a mile on the Santa Anita turf course. 2-6

Double

Pick 3

3rd 1-2

4th 5-6

5th 2-6

Race 6

No. 7 Fiscal Cliff could pull the upset in here at a big price. No. 10 Itsalwayssomething ran good in his first start and gets a good post for this to stay out of trouble and make his late run. 7-10

Race 7

No. 5 Chief Havoc exploded down the lane to win by more than seven lengths last time out. He has been highly regarded by his connections and has a huge work here on April 27th. No. 8 Kid Dreams has been stabled here for a long time and all of his works have come on this track. 5-8

Race 8

Baffert sends out first time starter No. 1 Quality Plan who is loaded with bullets and his dam Gypsy Hollow has dropped 3 winners from 3 starters and two were stakes winners. Mr. B also sends out No. 6 Okaad who may like this longer distance and the switch to a synthetic surface. No. 10 Say Ow is very unlucky to still be a maiden, he is in top form and is due for some luck to go his way. 1-6-10

Double

7th 5-8

8th 1-6-10

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 1 Silk Indian is in from Santa Anita and gets Baze, the big drop is very troubling and he will be odds on so we will try and beat. No. 2 Sam Jam is in good form and owns a win at this 6 furlong distance, he will be making a late run. 1-2

Race 2

No. 4 Giannonatti drops trying to cash and has a bullet work for this. No. 6 Lucky to Stay Home gets back to a sprint and will get a perfect sitting trip. 4-6

Race 3

No. 5 Los Bambinos was bet like a good thing in his one and only start but broke slow and lost his shot, he has a very good work since and Carr gets his shot. No. 7 Northern Smoke is the one to beat off the layoff. 5-7

Race 4

No. 6 Tusher Mtn Man gets back to a sprint and that could be the answer with Hernandez taking over. 6

Pick four

1st 1-2

2nd 4-6

3rd 5-7

4th 6

Race 5

No. 1 Havanna Jack has been bet in all six of his starts and has been looking for a grass race and gets one today. No. 5 Tricky Shane exits our HTW list off a big win last time out when changing his style and coming from the back, Baze sticks. No. 11 Dry Gulcher is a must use if he draws in. 1-5-11

Race 6

No. 2 Hard Hearted Lady has been right there in her last two starts. No. 6 Stormy Sierra drops into a good spot. No. 7 Darncat ran right behind the Hard Hearted Lady last time out and looks to turn the tables with Baze taking over. 2-6-7

Exacta box 2-6-7

Race 7

The last four times No. 1 Farmer Giles has run he finished 2nd by a head, 2nd by a neck, 2nd by ¾ and 2nd by a half a length, he is sitting on a bullet work for this as he tries to find the finish line. No. 2 Reinvent gets his main jockey back and the drop puts him right there. 1-2

Double

6th 2-6-7

7th 1-2

Race 8

No. 1 Katie’s Song showed a new dimension in her last start when taking back and closing late, she will need that style in this race. No. 4 Sea of Desire looks very tough in this spot in her second try here at the gate. 1-4
