HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

Just another five horse field to start the day at good ole Holly Park, No. 1 Lemon Hero just won a race on this 6 furlong turf course and finds another field loaded with early speed to set up his late run and since Bejarano did not get a mount for the Belmont he stays in town and tries to stay on top of the jockey leader board, No. 2 Ostourah won at first asking when winning a 6 furlong turf sprint for trainer Chad Brown last year at Belmont when sent off at the 2-1 chalk, she lands in the barn of Bob Baffert and looks like the one to beat. 1-2

Race 2

No. 6 All About Avery could be the speed in here and if she can clear early she will be gone, No. 7 Frannie’sspirittoo gets her second try at this 20k maiden claiming level and she will fall into a good stalking position. 6-7

Race 3

No. 5 Meringue Pie is the speed in here and will try and take them wire-to-wire, No. 1 Greeley Awesome won going a mile on the grass at Santa Anita and will be the one to fear the most late. 1-5

Race 4

No. 2 Ridingwiththedevil exits our HTW list off back-to-back solid seconds this 7 furlongs could be the answer to getting her to the winners circle, No. 3 Burns Turn gets off the grass in this her second start off the John Sadler claim. 2-3

Race 5

We get a full field of 10k claimers and this looks like a good race to sink our teeth into, No. 1 Kuro has the hot riding Tyler Baze riding and he just missed for 8k here on May 26th going 5-1/2 furlongs, he gets an extra half furlong today and that should get him home on top, No. 2 Position A comes back to town after running with better at Turf Paradise, he likes this track and if this 7yo still has some run he will be very dangerous with Maldo getting the ride. No. 5 Cragmont is the stablemate of Kuro a nd gets his first start off of back-to-back claims, three races back they ran one two. 1-2-5

Exacta box 1-2-5 and win and place 1

Race 7

Lots and lots of early speed in this 25k 6 furlong sprint, they will be out winging it and if the speed duel gets real heated No. 3 Dress Code could come and run them all down late at a price, No. 9 Teasing Berie can also close late and he will be a big price, he won in his only start here last April when coming from the clouds at 15-1. 3-9

Race 8

THE 70K REDONDO BEACH GOING 1 MILE ON THE GRASS
