HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

 

No. 1 Saint Cindy is a claim back by Jack Carava, he lost this girl for 8k but claimed her right back for 10k, No. 5 My Aunt Fanny drops trying to cash and No. 6 Lucy Got Lucky has never been off the board at this 1 1/16 distance with two wins two seconds and a third. 1-5-6


Race 2

 

 

You need a dart board for this race, No. 3 Miles Rules is a first time starter whose dam has dropped two winners from two starters, No. 4 Teddy’s Promise is bedded down in a top barn and has some win early breeding, No. 7 Faisca showed big early speed in her first start and with that one under her belt she could hold better today. 3-4-7


Race 3

 

 

No. 1 Fairway Road came just short in her only try on this 6 furlong turf course she finds a field loaded with early speed and if able to find clear sailing she could run them down at what will be a nice price. 1


Race 4

 

 

No. 2 Moon De French had his race and now the hot combo of Baffert/Garcia go for the gold in the Grade 2 A Gleam Handicap. No. 3 Emma Darling has a win at this distance and is back in town and reunited with jocky Rosario, No. 4 Free Flying Soul looks to be the one to beat but will be overbet and is 0-3 at 7 furlongs. 2-3-4


Race 5

 

 

No. 6 Intuitive Nature has been right there in all three of his turf starts and is due to break through, No. 8 Loro looks live off the layoff for a very sharp trainer who can bring them back smoking. 6-8


Race 6

 

 

In what looks to be another crap shoot the best look to be No. 2 Bullfighter off of that good 4 furlong work on July 10 and the drop in class, No. 3 Beauteous Maximus who also takes a big drop in class and No. 5 Sky Searcher who gets his first start off the Leandro Mora claim, (Doug O’Neill’s assistant trainer, Doug is on suspension). 2-3-5


Race 7

 

 

No. 1 Always In Style looks like a good price play, this 5yo Mare has the rail, a great turf jockey in Brice Blanc and she gets her second start off the layoff, all systems look to be on go. She will need to run down No. 6 My Maloof Rocker who will be the controlling speed in this 1 1/16 turf route. 1-6

Race 9

 

 

They could only get five to enter the Grade 2 Swaps how sad is that, No. 1 Alphies Bet has been in steady training and should get a great run at the speed and he has a win over the course, No. 3 Sidney’s Candy is back in action after getting crushed in the Kentucky Derby, he will be out trying to take them back to back, No. 5 Twirling Candy has won both of his starts but gets the acid test today. 1-3-5


Race 10

 

 

No. 7 Decarchy Fever looks to be coming around for the low profile Sam Semkin who pops with one now and then, No. 9 Stormy Ambition and No. 11 Southern Victory look to be the speed. 7-9-11

Race 4

 

 

No. 5 Seemed Sweet may sit off the hot pace and take one shot as will No. 8 I Can Yodel Too. 5-8
