Yesterday’s results

At Hollywood we lost by a head in race one, we hit our key bet play in race two hitting the Q and trifecta. In the third we ran one two but lost our dime super. We ran first and second in race four but lost race five six and seven. We ran first and third in the last race. At the Gate we ran one two in race one, won race two. We lost the third and got nosed in the fourth. We ran first and second in race five. The start of our key play late pick three got off with a bang as No. 2 Carissa won and paid $68.80 but we couldn’t connect with the other two races.

Hollywood Park

Race 1

No. 6 Working Man Blues looked good winning his first here on the West Cost after shipping in from Gulfstream Park, trainer Mitchell looks to have him primed for another big effort on the grass.

Key Play

$20 win and place No. 6 for $40

Race 2

In here No. 2 Madeo looks like a short price winner but we will play a key Q using him with recent maiden breaker No. 1 Exuma who earned a big number in that race and the Turf Paradise shipper No. 5 Bingham who has won two straight.

Key Play

$20 key Q 2 with 1-5 for $40

Race 3

This looks like a cold two horse race and we will use both in the early pick three, No. 4 Lemonette and No. 7 Ransom Captive. 4-7

Key Play

$10 pick three

Race 1: 6

Race 2: 2

Race 3: 4-7 for $20

Race 4

Both No. 13 Caddymaster and No. 14 Quiet Period have a look at a price in this very difficult race. 13-14

Race 5

No. 6 Indian Way hopped in a slow start that cost her the race last time out. No. 9 Vixana looks to have some big time talent and will be hard to beat as her trainer is hitting at a .44% clip with layoff horses. We will make this race a key play. 6-9

Key Play

$2 key tri 6-9 with 6-9 with 1-7-8for $12

$2 key tri 6-9 with 1-7-8 with 6-9 for $12

Race 2

Race 4

Key Play

$1 pick four

Race 1: 3-4-5

Race 2: 2

Race 3: 4-5-6

Race 4: 1-3-7 for $27

Race 5

No. 3 Bells Fool an 8yo gelding is a win machine that has won 7 of 21 lifetime starts. He comes back off a long layoff but his speed make him very dangerous in this $12,500 claimer. The entry of No. 1 Bradford and 1a No Reverse will be the main danger. 1-3

Race 6: 1-7-8-10

Race 7: 1-7-9

Race 8

The Santa Anita shipper No. 8 Marzelline looks very tough in this 1 1/16 turf route, we will single her in the late pick four. 8

Key Play

$1 pick four

Race 6: 1-7-8-10

Race 7: 1-7-9
