HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

No. 3 Malibu Knight won in his only start here and Bejarano rode him that day he is back on today. No. 5 Dress Code looks to get back in form as he has run some good races over this course and is one for one at this 6 furlong turf distance here at Hollywood. No. 7 Great Friends Rule will show all of his speed today. 3-5-7

Race 2

Trainer Graham Motion brings in No. 1 Lemon de Oro from Keeneland where she has been working light out. No. 2 Sergeant O’Rourke blasted them at 7/5 first out of the box going 6 furlongs on the Santa Anita dirt and now gets a big boast in class and will the grass. No. 6 For Emma won by ten in her first start and now gets a big boost in class first off the O’Neill claim. 1-2-6

Race 3

In the straight maiden race going 6 furlongs on the grass we will use two girls exiting the same race No. 6 One Time Only who showed good speed going down the hill at Santa Anita and No. 8 Tres Osos who showed good speed but had to steady hard at the hill and was eased late, look for her to come back running for Richard Mandella. 6-8

Exacta box 6-8 and win and place 8

Race 4

We will take a shot and single No. 4 King Maya who just blew them away at ten cents on the dollar in his last start, he is spotted perfectly and has run good here at Hollywood. 4

Race 5

No. 3 Topper’s Ghost has done little wrong in his three lifetime starts with two wins and a third. No. 7 Kill Shot also has done little wrong and comes off a win at .20 cents on the dollar. 3-7

Race 6

Jockey Bejarano who rode No. 5 Public Policy last time out losing by a nostril on the bob ops for No. 6 Pray Hard who he also rode last time to a second place finish. Public Policy doesn’t lose anything as he gets Mike Smith. 5-6

Race 7

No. 3 Anabaa Premium may have been best in his last race but for trouble. No. 4 Runaway Wildcat gets Maldo back in the irons and the one time he rode this 5yo gelding he got the win. No. 5 Cast a Doubt could pop at a price. 3-4-5

Double 

6th 5-6

7th 3-4-5

Race 8

In this very wide open 1-1/16 turf route we will go with No. 2 Power Foot who will be right there late and No. 5 American Act the speed who will be out winging it on the front end with Mike Smith. 2-5

Race 9

No. 11 Ice Cream Truck looks to have found a real soft crew of 20k maiden claimers as does No. 13 Warren’s T. Baze who gets off the grass and drops into a maiden claimer for the first time and Bejarano stays to ride. 11-13

Pick four

6th 5-6

7th 3-4-5

8th 2-5

9th 11-13

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 1 Blue Blizzard drops trying to cash, it’s her or pass. 1

Race 2

No. 1 Ancient Artifact will go much better in this spot. No. 2 Billie’s Bling is in top form and won the last time she raced here at the gate back in August. 1-2

Race 3

No. 3 Runfasterelse is looking for her third straight win but comes of the layoff of 7 months, her works say yes. No. 4 The Only Key gets her first start of the claim and win. No. 7 Life Is a Stone will be playing catch me if you can with Baze at the controls. 3-4-7

Race 4

No. 3 God Of War is back to the spot of his last win, No. 5 Pump N UP looks ready for his best in this his third off the layoff. 3-5

Race 5

We get 2yo maiden fillies going a mile on the grass and this one is up for grabs, we will take a little shot with No. 9 Skyblueandblack who is in from Santa Anita. She never got untracked against much stronger in her first start and may find these to her liking. 9

Race 6

No. 6 Time Jumper was sent off at 7/5 in his first start but had to settle for second. No. 11 Top of the World exits the same race in which he was sent off at only 6/1 but wheeled at the start and lost the rider, we look for him to rebound with a clean break for a top barn. 6-11

Race 7

Lots of early zip in this race so we will go with No. 5 Andallthatitmeans who is in from Hastings Park and has been running longer, he will sit and pounce down the lane. No. 6 Exit Stage Left is a live first time starter who is ready to roll. 5-6

Race 8

No. 5 Two Blue Hens ships in from Del Mar for trainer Tom Proctor, we will single. 5

Race 9

If No. 11 Running Water can run back to his September 27th race he will crush these. 11

Double 

8th 5

9th 11
