HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

None of these girls have won at this distance and the likely chalk No. 1 Harmony Creator hasn’t been seen since Oct. 17 at Santa Anita when just getting beat by a head, she was claimed that day and now resurfaces on the drop; we will pass.

Race 2

Statebred maidens going 1 1/16 on the grass and Carla Gaines brings back No. 2 Intermission who looks set for a big run. No. 2

Key Play

$10 win and place 2 for $20

$4 Q 2 with 3-5 for $8

Race 3

No. 4 Hiya Silver gets stretched out for start #3 with his sire being Silver Charm he should love this 1 1/16 distance. No. 2 Aitcho ran right with Hiya last time out and these two could finish one two. 2-4

Race 4

2yo fillies running for a claiming price of 25k, No. 5 Bright Abyss could not handle 50k claimers in her last start so the drop looks to be the right way to go and her speed should play well with these. No. 6 Thelma Rose looks perfectly spotted off her maiden breaker and she will get a good set up for her late run. 5-6

Key Play

$2 double

3rd 2-4

4th 5-6 for $8

Race 5

If No. 6 Smokey Lonesome can handle the green he will be right there. No.8 Kelly Leak faced much tougher in his last two starts and even won the GR2 Pest Pal but got DQ, he is the one to beat at what will be a very short price. 6-8

Race 6

As we move along with this very ugly card we now have to deal with statebred straight maidens, No. 3 Just Charmed ran a good one in his one and only, if able to move forward he has a big shot with these. No. 5 Raise the River was well thought of as a 2yo but went on the shelf last October of ‘07 and now shows his face in this spot as a gelding, if ready he wins. No. 6 Drake Lake is a first time starter out of the hot Sadler barn and gets the services of the leading man Bejarano. 3-5-6

Key Play

$4 exacta box 3-5-6 for $24

$1 tri box 3-5-6 for $6

Race 7

Keep an eye on race two of the card and see how the 1-2-5 run as they are out of the Gooch’s Dream race and Gooch’s Dream is the No. 2 horses in this race, if they run well this guy has a big shot at winning this race. No.2

Race 8

No. 6 Virginia Pearl was very live in her first start, if she gets some pace to run at she will be tough down the lane. No. 7 Suarez is the speed but may be hooked early by No. 10 Voodoo’s Vision who drops and also has speed. 6-7-10

Key Play

$4 exacta box 6-7-10 for $24

$1 tri box 6-7-10 for $6

Race 2

No. 1 Just Get’er Done won for fun on this course and at this distance at .90 cents on the dollar in her last start, she gets a move up and looks tough right back.

No. 4 Pretorian Falls is even money on the morning line but looks to have a lack of win spirit as she has finished second the last four times all as the chalk we will try and beat her with No. 2 Quan’s Girl a lightly raced fillies who gets off the grass, she will be making a big late move. No.2
