OAK TREE at HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

Race 2

 

No. 1 Irrefutable hasn’t been seen since breaking his maiden at 6/5 first time out of the box for trainer Baffert back in December of 09’, that 6 furlong work on the 15th signals his readiness.

Race 6

 

No. 2 Tiz A Bud Girl has a sharp 6 furlong work since her last race on the grass and the switch to the main will put her right there. No. 5 Secret Oath exits the same race as Tiz and she will also go better with the move back to the main. 2-5


Race 7

 

Could back to back Tiz horses win well it is possible as No. 1 Tiz West had his prep at Fairplex and looks to be sitting on a big race, No. 2 Meteore is the stablemate of Tiz West and takes a big drop in class. No. 7 Wing Forward has a win and a second from two starts on this flat mile turf course and may have some price value. 1-2-7 ( turf only). No. 6 Aggie Engineer will be the main one if this comes off the grass.

We will take our shot with two lightly raced fillies in the final leg of the late pick four, No. 4 Suitable Attire a 4yo filly with just three lifetime starts, she now gets a big rider upgrade to P Val. No. 5 Bar Rock Omama looks like the long shot special as this 3yo filly was last seen running up the track last year at Fairplex, she looks very sneaky for Mullins. 4-5
