HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

No. 1 Troubletimesthree won on this track at this distance when he broke his maiden, he would get a good setup today from his cozy post and Rosario will give him a nice patient ride, No. 3 Benezit gets back on the main and Bejarano rides, he is the one to beat. 1-3

Race 2

No. 1 Hard Bill is one tough customer, he has eight wins and two seconds from 10 starts, he knows where the finish line is and will be tough once again. 1

Race 3

Speed rules these 2yo maiden 4½ furlong sprints and No. 3 Swiss Love fits the bill, she showed high speed going 2 furlongs at Santa Anita and just may not stop today, No. 7 Southern Fireball had her race and will be tracking Swill Love from start to finish. 3-7

Race 4

No. 1 Ann’s Plan just loves this track with three wins and a second from four starts, she finds a soft group of girls and will continue her streak. No. 8 Puddlin Mud has some longshot potential as she will be flying late. 1-8

No. 1 Lady Bradbury was scratched over the weekend and looks to have found the right spot for the maiden breaker, No. 2 Court Ballado looks to be on the improve for trainer Art Sherman. 1-2

Race 6

No. 1 Tavern drops one class and his trainer clicks at around .27% with this move, No. 7 More Than Class is back in just six days for trainer Jeff Mullins who is also back in six days after his little suspension, he has this guy ready to fire. No. 9 Delaware Doe will be right there once again. 1-7-9

Race 7

No. 2 Wynning Ride looks like something good to eat, she was last seen running in the Hollywood Starlight last December against some very good fillies, she looks like gold against these. No. 1 Andalacia looks to be the biggest danger as she ships in from Ireland for trainer Paddy Gallagher, this girl looks to have some class about her. No. 7 Lady Lumberjack was scratched over the weekend for this spot as she wanted no part of Witty or Carlsbad in the Railbird. 2***with 1-7
