HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

Trainer Cody Autrey is due for some luck and he sends out the Lone Star comebacker No. 2 It Doesn’t Add Up off a good work pattern and Nakatani going 6 furlongs on the grass. No. 5 Kilat is the one to beat off his three turf sprints and his dominating win on this course last time out. 2-5*

Race 2

No. 5 Corner Office is in top form and will try and go long first off the claim. No. 3 Beer Meister will be the one they will all need to fear late with the hot riding Tyler Baze. 3-5

Race 3

We get fillies and mares going 6 furlongs on the grass in this starter allowance race and none have won on the grass and only one of them ran on the grass with no luck, this one is a crap shoot. No. 1 Willetta won very easy in her last start on the main here and her closing style may play well today. 1

Race 4

The drop in class will help the chances of No. 4 Yacht Harbor in this very soft group of 30k maiden claimers and the same can be said for No. 5 Colossians who was well bet in his one and only start. No. 7 Wise Boss woke up in his last start when dropped to this level showing good early speed when running second. 4-5-7

Exacta box 4-5-7

Race 5

Gary Stevens gets on No. 1 So She Dances who drops off the win as they try and strike while the iron is hot. No. 4 Joyce and Me just got beat by a neck last time out by So She Dances.

Exacta box 1-4-8

Race 6

No. 1 You Know I Know gets off the grass and has a big last work for this on the cushion surface. No. 8 Keyboard Courage ran a better then looked 4th here in his last start. No. 9 Sumerian is the price play. 

1-8-9

Stevens rides No. 1 Two Blue Hens for his good buddy Tom Proctor as this filly goes long on the grass. Tyler Baze gets back on No. 3 Princes of Pearl who he just missed with one race back by a nostril 1-3

Race 8

No. 1 Clubhouse Ride has finished second in his last five starts including back-to-back second to Game on Dude, the question is, what did those races take out of him? No. 5 Liaison is back in top form and loves this track. No. 3 Kettle Corn also likes this track as he has hit the board in all seven of his starts here including a good second behind Liaison last time out. 1-3-5

Race 9

No. 5 Lucky Cotton exits our HTW list and is a $$$$$ play today in this 6 furlong turf sprint. We will single in the late pick four and make an exacta box with the two horses exiting the same race No. 8 Tribal Dude and No. 9 Dreamingofatticus. 5-8-9
