HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

No. 1 Big Wags is in top form and is wheeled back in just eleven days off the win. No. 2 Blake is 2-for-2 here at Hollywood. 1-2

Race 2

This is one bad 25k claimer for 3yo and up which have never won two races. No. 1 Corsa Di Cavalli was last seen running in the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity almost 2 years ago. No. 5 Old Man Lake is out of the hot Adam Kitchingman barn and he has hit with 9 of his 20 starters at the meet. 1-5

Race 3

No. 1 Miss Pippa looks best again but she has finished second in her last three races and lost at .40 cents on the dollar last time out but the filly that ran 3rd some five lengths behind her came back and won next out. 1

Race 4

Trainer Walther Solis and jockey Jose Valdivia hook up again with a 2yo first time starter in No. 4 Sweet Lips Pooh, we think she is the one. 4

Win and place 10

Race 6

Exacta box 2-3-6

Race 7

Baffert sends out No. 2 Gifting off the maiden breaker. He will try and turn the tables on No. 3 Corlett Drive who exits our HTW list, as Corlett beat Gifting who was .60 cents on the dollar one race back. 2-3

Race 8

No. 5 Maddog Maddie has had her chances but ran her best race at this level last time out. No. 6 Beautiful Spirit ran a nice even race first out of the box and only needs to improve a little to beat these. No. 8 Classic Journey gets off the grass and drops in class and will show all of her speed today. No. 9 My Best Ten is a first time starter out of the dam Mine Inning who has dropped 6 winners from 6 starters. Trainer John Sadler who wins at around .35% with his first time maiden claimers sends out No. 14 Midnight Lady with the bug boy Irving Orozco in the irons and this kid can ride. 5-6-8-9-14

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

We start our 7 race card with a 32k 2yo maiden claimer and doubt if any of these are worth 32k. No. 1 Echo Zulu showed good speed in his first start and may clear and be gone today. 1
