HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 5 -- #7 Magic Launch - Had been running very good in her straight maiden races. Was dropped in for this 40K tag and crushed them while never being asked. Maybe trainer Gaines was playing a little poker but it didn’t work. She got claimed for 40K.

Race 5 -- #8 Ale's Pride - Was exiting a highly rated maiden special race on the pro ride and trying the grass for the first time. Ran well, finishing fourth but may prefer the main. If switched back, dig deep and take a big shot. $$$$$

Race 5 -- #9 Golden Rocketship - Had not been seen since last July at Hollywood Park. She took all the money today and blitzed these by more than five lengths while being under a hard hold late. This one will move up and beat winners in next start.

Race 5 -- #12 Dine At Nine - Was last seen at Del Mar in August 2008, but came out running in this 6½ furlong downhill turf sprint. She could not hold off the winner, but was a bang-up second at 15-1.

Race 9 -- #5 J P Jammer - Stalked the early speed from the rail, but lacked room when trying to make a run through into the stretch. He took back, shifted out for room and surged between horses. Was flying late and picked up the place money in a super game effort.

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 1 -- #4 Pretorian Falls - Late running filly was just a tad late in her last start on the grass going a flat mile. Always gives her best and could pop next out for her new connections.
