Thursday at Hollywood Park, we had four HTW; of the four we had three winners and a late scratch.

SANTA ANITA

Race 3 - #9 Tevez the Tiger - Highly regarded 2yo maiden shipped in from Keeneland for trainer Eoin Harty. Tevez would have beaten most 2yo maidens on the grounds, but had the misfortune of facing the talented Position A. He ran his heart out losing the bob. This one will be a single in next start. $$$

Race 7 - #5 Medjool
and #6 Icemancometh - Was being dropped by trainer Mike Mitchell into this $62,500 1-mile turf route. He showed his class and drew away once challenged into the stretch. With money hard to find there have not been a whole lot of claims at the meet. One of John Sadler’s main clients Gary and Cecil Barber put up the $62,500 for this gelding. Look for Sadler to place this guy in the perfect spot so he can get a quick return on two of his favorite clients’ investment. $$$$$
