HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1 

Trainer Walther Solis sends out first time starter No. 1 Get Even Girl with Edwin Maldonado in the irons. She is out of the dam Excessive Girl (In Excess) and this dam has dropped 5 winners from 6 starters including a stakes winner. Maldo will be gunning from the bell. No. 4 Western Showdown has a real nice work and looks ready to roll first out of the box. 1-4

Race 2

No. 1 Laugh At Life gets his second try off the Sadler claim and second sprinting on the grass, he will go much better at this level. No. 2 One Firm Cat will be making a late run. 1-2

2nd 1-2

Race 3

No. 5 Brooklyn Rose gets the double jump in class in her first start off the Julio Canani claim and Bejarno is back to ride. No. 2 Cee’s the Year gets back on the main and will be the one to fear late. 2-5

Race 4

No. 8 Willetta will find this odd 7½ furlong distance just perfect for her. She looks to have found her stride and today looks like graduation day for this 4yo filly. We will single in the players pick five. 8

Race 5

No. 2 Warren’s Flasher is looking for her third straight win and second straight on the grass. No. 5 Warren’s Veneda could key a Warren Warren exita. This filly is lightly raced and her one turf race was a good one. No. 7 Akiss Forarose has been facing much tougher. She finally gets a needed drop and Gomez gets the call. If her will has not been ruined she wins. 2-5-7

Race 7

No. 1 Llandudno won like a good thing at 15/1 first out of the box for Sadler when going down the hill at Santa Anita and now will try this six furlong turf course. No. 6 Malibu Honey is the stablemate of Llandudno and has the best last 4 furlong work for this on the 10th. 1-6

Q 1-6 and win and place 6

Race 8

The day ends at Hollywood Park the way it started with 2yo maiden fillies so it would be a good idea to have a cocktail and an early dinner, if not see who the early betting goes in this race. On paper if your not with the backside in crowd No. 6 Yodelmesomemagic had a good race here on April 25th and was well bet that day and has come back to work good and the same can be said for No. 7 Harlington’s Rose and No. 8 Patty Wack. There are several live first time starters in here starting with No. 3 Tribalista and the Swiss Yodeler No. 10 Miss Swiss Rose. It is wide open so watch the betting. 3-6-7-8-10

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 3 Decoy will be odds on in here as he is a dropper with early speed and Baze. No. 4 Reno Reba has a shot to upset off the layoff. No. 6 Soft Shoulders exits the same race as the Decoy and is a must use.

Tri box 3-4-6

Race 2

No. 3 Lady Fifty Two looks ready to run at first asking for Hollendorfer as does No. 6 No Better Terms for Sherman and this one’s dam Easy Action has dropped 4 winners from 4 starters. 3-6

Race 3

We get one bad group of 4k claimers going a mile. No. 2 Sedona Ridge drops and gets the main man. 2

Race 5

No. 2 Golden Mexico shipped in from Santa Anita and took them wire-to-wire on this turf course last time out. He will be trying to do the same today. No. 5 Outdoorsman Gene will be making his usual late run and can get there at this lower level. No. 7 Farmer Giles loves this course hitting the board in 19 of his 20 starts with 9 wins. 2-5-7

Race 6

No. 4 Southfield Fog is the speed in here with Baze getting back on. No. 5 Gambling Miss will try and run her down. 4-5
