HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

No. 4 Warren’s Joe T. has been knocking on the door with the bug boy Nicolas riding and now they really want the win as Bejarano gets the call. No. 5 Gallant Charm looks perfectly spotted off the maiden breaker. 4-5

Race 2

We get 2yo straight maidens going 6 furlongs and as usual Baffert sends out two good looking first time starters with No. 1 Chitu and No. 7 The Admiral a Giants Causeway who may want longer. The speedy third time starter No. 5 Melatonin gets a major rider upgrade that will make him very tough to beat. No. 8 Relative Time ran a big third in his first start when going down the hill against the very good Global View.

1-5-7-8

Double

1st 4-5

2nd 1-5-7-8

Race 3

The one win that jockey Aaron Gryder got this meet was on No. 1 Blues and Silvers and it came on this 6 furlong turf course. No. 2 Llandudno ran right behind Silver and now Nakatani gets the call. No. 3 Winding Way ran big going down the hill in the Grade 3 S K Maddy and will be a main player. 1-2-3

Race 4

Bejarano got on No. 1 Warren’s Judy last time at this level and got the win and now catches another field loaded with early speed. No. 3 Cassandra Lynne comes off the layoff and drops from 40k to this 8k claimer, if she has three legs she wins. 1-3

Race 5

We get 2yo maidens going 1-1/16 on the grass. No. 4 Number Five ran a real nice race in his first start going down the hill and now gets the stretchout by Mandella and that November 25th 7 furlong work says he is on go. 4

Win and place 4

Race 6

THE GRADE 1 HOLLYWOOD STARLET

No. 6 Arethusa blasted home winning the Sharp Cat by more than eight lengths at this same distance. We don’t know how good No. 7 Streaming is but we will find out as he was bet to .50 cents on the dollar in his first start and won for fun. Kenny McPeek brings in the classy No. 8 Rosalind who was a bang up 3rd in the BC Juvenile filly. 6-7-8

Race 7

We probably need to play a double from Roselind in the 6th to No. 2 Kathleen Rose in this race as she has run very good in all three of her turf starts. 2

Race 8

THE GRADE 2 BAYAKOA

No. 2 Warren’s Veneda has won both of her starts here. No. 3 Fiftyshadesofhay has been facing much better and won in her only start on this course, she is the one to beat. No. 7 Curvy Cat was a fast closing second behind Warren last time out. 2-3-7

Race 9

Now we get 20k maiden claimers going 7 furlongs. No. 4 Artic Warrior drops into a maiden claimer in this his second start and has a big work here on the 1st. No. 1 Perfect Magic Man ran an ok 3rd going this distance in his last start. 1-4

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 8 Farmer Giles is an old pro who loves this turf course, he is super tough at this level and the one to beat albeit at a short price. No. 10 Funi Act will be the main danger. 8-10

Race 2

No. 2 Crawford the Crook looks to be sitting on the win at his level. No. 3 Just Like Uptown is the stranger danger. 2-3

Race 3

THE 75K GOLD RUSH

No. 2 Rockford comes off the maiden breaker going this mile distance, he has been well bet in both of his starts. No. 4 Argyle Cut also comes off the maiden breaker at mile on the grass and he was a ½ length behind the Rockford files one race back. No. 6 Exit Stage Left won at first asking at even money despite trouble. 2-4-6

Race 4

No. 2 Terrys Tom Cat ran good in his first route try on the grass and now moves back to the synthetic but that last work says he is on edge. The usual high percentage trainer Lloyd Mason is still looking for his first win at the meet and he sends out No. 5 Blackford and the good thing is that Juan Hernandez gets the call, he will like this mile distance. No. 6 Three Strike Rule lost by a nostril when beating Tom Cat last time out. 2-5-6

Exacta box 2-5-6

Race 5

2yo 20k maiden claimer go a mile on the grass. It’s interesting that Baze gets on No. 6 Charlie Thomas first off the Dan Markle claim, he moves up in class and tries the grass for the first time. No. 8 Being There lost his last start at Hollywood as the 7/5 chalk when running for a 40k claiming price, he will be hard to beat with the move back to the grass. 6-8

Race 6

No. 2 Royal Stormer has a good work since his last start. No. 6 Worldly Lad drops trying to cash. No. 10 Far Out will try and run them down at the wire and that last work says yes. 2-6-10

Race 8

No. 7 Very Elusive gets his first start off the Morey claim and the big win on this turf course, he becomes claimproof in this starter allowance race. No. 3 Unusual Talent is the main danger. 3-7

Exacta box 3-7 and win and place 7

Race 9

No. 1 Bud Matic gets his second start at this level and has some long shot potential. No. 6 Squawk One lost by a dwindling head in his first start at this level, he is the one to beat. 1-6
