No. 1, Happy Celyna, is in from Hollywood and shows up here in the Steve Sherman barn for super owner Bob Bone with Russle the mussel in the irons. No. 4, Ole Cheryl, takes a big drop for Hollendorfer off a very long layoff. She is an 8yo mare who was a win machine in her younger days. 1-4
No. 2, Awesome Feat, just missed last time out in a troubled trip, she exits the same race as No. 3, Star Protocol, and No. 5, Geribeca. Let’s make a tri and exacta box and make a flat bet on Feat. 2-3-5
$4 exacta box 2-3-5 for $24
$1 tri box 2-3-5 for $6
$15 win on No. 2 for $15
No. 2, Honor Your Wager, comes off a big win, a race where the third place finisher came back and won, he looks primed and ready for another score. 2
$30 win on No. 2 for $30
No. 4, Silic’s Kid, was last seen running against the likes of TwoStepSalsa back in January; he looks mighty dangerous in here. No. 7, High Solids, has been right there several times and may have found his friends. No. 9, Fortunate Child, is a first time starter out of the Miyadi barn with good works, he looks ready to roll. No. 10, Royal Robert, ran some good races last year but was a big time hanger, he may do better in here and looks like part of the trifecta. 4-7-9-10
$1 tri box 4-7-9-10 for $24
This is a very ugly race. No. 5, We Love L.A., ran her best race when winning on this course last year, she could wake up today. No. 2, Look Who’s Cooking, looks well placed off the maiden breaker. No. 4, Icing, also looks placed correctly off her last score. 2-4-5
No. 3, Sonic Comic, was last seen in March running a big race against Warrens Scooter who came back to score again. He now shows up here, something must have went awry. No. 6, Ilikeitalot, comes off a huge score and two horses in back of him that day have already come back to win, he is the one to beat. 3-6
