HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

No. 4 Mia Lady was bet like the winner last out, she led all the way but had to settle for second. No. 5 Patriot C H looks like a live item for Carla Gaines, her dam Lucky C. H. ( A.P.Indy) has dropped 3 winners from 3 starters including a stakes winner. No. 2 Tribal Syn is better than her first two starts and will wake up today with Joe Talamo getting the leg up. 2-4-5

Race 2

No. 1 Raise the Hoof has burned some cash in his first two starts and now drops into this maiden claimer and gets Maldo gunning from the bell, after him just watch the board in this 2yo 4½ furlong sprint or hit the all button. 1 (all)

Race 3

The bug boy Irving Orozco gets on No. 1 Too Fast to Pass, who drops in class for this 6 furlong turf sprint, we see a big effort. No. 3 Maquina could offer betting value, he has not run since last year at Woodbine when he won a 40k claimer, he hit the board in all five of his lifetime starts as a 2yo with 2 wins and 3 seconds. No. 6 Laugh At Life ran a good one on this course last out for 50k and now is in for this 40k claiming tag. 1-3-6

Race 4

No. 3 Smart N Dreamy had a horrible trip in her first start and can only go better this time around. No. 6 Top Knot comes off a little layoff and drops in with maiden claimers. 3-6

Race 5

No. 2 Bella Viaggia did little wrong in his 3yo campaign with 3 wins and a second at 3 different tracks, she starts her 4yo season off today with Mike Smith riding. This is probably a prep for bigger things but she is a must use. Jockey Bejarano gets back on No. 4 Quizzical and the last 5 times he rode this filly he won 3 of them. Gary Stevens rides No. 5 Belle de Lune for his buddy Tom Proctor and the one time he ride this filly he got the win going down the hill at 11/1. 2-4-5

Exacta box 4-8 and win 8

Race 7

No. 2 Boat Trip will find the perfect pace to make his last run in this his second off the layoff, his last work her was super, bet him to cash! 2

Race 8

In this 8k claimer for fillies and mares going 1-1/16, No. 5 Katy’s Kitty gets her price tag hacked in half and will try and take them wire-to-wire but she will need to deal with the other speedy dropper No. 8 Hidden Passion who just won here at this distance for a 16k price tag. Things could set up for No. 1 Bonita Star who will sit and pounce down the lane. 1-5-8
