HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

No. 1 Turbo Call gets a huge rider upgrade to the red hot Rosario, he will have to flee the rail and get to No. 4 Tahoe Kid late. 1-4

Race 2

There was a big storm in Vegas on Wednesday and this race has the looks of a storm as No. 4 Storm Seige drops back to his best surface after showing good speed in a 50k turf sprint, he will have to hold off No. 6 Stormy Racer. 4-6

Key Play

$2 double

1st 1-4

2nd 4-6 for $8

Race 3

Any of the five listed to run has a shot but we will go with the Paulo Lobo invader No. 1 Portuga who ships in from Kentucky, the price will be right. No. 1

Race 4

No. 1 Real Lift is off our October HTW list; she gets her first start off the Jeff Mullins claim and looks ready for a top effort on the mover up in class. No. 3 Catch Cando will have to be caught if she beats No. 5 Twodollarstowin for the lead she could be gone, if they hook up then it will be a perfect setup for Real Lift. 1-3-5

Race 5

2yo fillies scheduled to run a flat mile on the grass but this race may be put on the main with the bad weather. If it stays on the grass we will side with No. 2 Haka who exits our HTW list and looks set for the maiden breaker, if goes to the main and Haka is scratched we will side with No. 1 Rare Sparkle and No. 11 Where’s Scarlet.

Race 6

No. 4 Boule d’OR exits our HTW list, trainer Jeff Mullins drops this 7yo off a very nice win here on November, is he playing poker or does he want to dump, it could be both but if this guy has all fours he beats this bunch. No. 3 Outrageous Limit ran behind the top pick in his last and will be right there again today. 3-4*

Key Play

$10 Q 3-4 for $10

$20 win 4 for $20

Race 7

I really hope this stays on the grass as No. 5 Cavanal who exits our HTW list looks spotted perfectly for win #2, if switched to the main and his trainer Neil Drysdale opts to leave him in just dig deep and bet. No. 5

Race 8

No. 6 Crazy Tricia is yet another today that exits our HTW list and we could have a big day if all our HTW pop, Tricia will take some beating with this crew, we will single in the late pick three. No. 6

Key Play

$10 pick three

6th 3-4

7th 5

8th 6 for $20

No. 5 Blues Reason looks very live off the layoff at 6/1 he will have to beat No. 1 Forestry’s Fire and No. 4 Mikes Trippin. 1-4-5

Race 2

No. 1 Vindictive Cat looks like a short priced winner with Alvarado in the irons if this stays on the grass. No. 6 Glacier Peak ran behind the cat last time as did the speed No. 4 Coco M. 1-4-6
