HOLLWOOD PARK

Race 1

No. 2 All set gets a big break in the weights as the hustling bug boy Reyes Santiago rides, the price will be short but you can single in the early pick four. 2

Race 2

No. 4 Blackbriar has had his chances but wont find an easier group of straight maiden going 1 1/16 on the grass than these, we will single him also in the early pick four and make a few Q’s and tri’s using No. 3 Raymanjjohnsonjr who gets a major rider switch as Joel Rosario gets aboard for trainer Van Berg who is looking for his first win at the meet. No. 6 Saint Chocolate ran behind Blackbriar last time out but shows a nice 5 furlong work that signals he is ready for a big race. No. 7 What A Chestnut could be live at first asking for trainer Baffert. 4 with 3-6-7

Key Play

$4 Q 4 with 3-6-7 for $12

$1 tri 4 with 3-6-7 with 3-6-7 for $6

$1 tri 3-6-7 with 4 with 3-6-7 for $6

Race 3

No. 2 Village Lady makes a quick return to the races as she comes back in just five days and G Gomez takes over, No. 3 Sand Bridled shocked them last time out winning at 103/1, I like to come right back with these kind of horses as they have a habit of running another good race. No. 4 Lil Legal Linda will like this odd 7 1/2 furlong distance. 2-3-4

Race 4

No. 4 Sheskey gets blinkers on for this 5 1/2 furlong 32k 2 yo maiden claimer and she finds a very weak group, No. 3 Wait’N Sea is a Doug O’Neil first time starter and all of his 2 yo have been running great the entire meet. 3-4

Key Play

$1 pick four

1st 2

2nd 4

3rd 2-3-4

4th 3-4 for $6

Race 5

No. 3 Pistol Pete Afleet looks like a great place bet if you are betting with a rebate shop as he has eight seconds from twenty lifetime starts including three straight at the meet. No. 4 Funny Me has some longshot potential and has a win at the distance. 3-4

Key Play

$2 Q 3 with all for$12

$1 tri 4 with 3 with all for $5

Race 6

No. 3 Global Inspiration showed improved speed and stick last time out and may be set for graduation. No. 5 Juicy Lucy is overdue for the win, this race could end up with the Baze cousins first and second. 3-5

Race 7

No. 1 Dreamalong exits our HTW list, she gets post position #1 once again but last time Solis just took back and made a five wide run down the lane for the win, look for that same move today. No. 3 Royal Fortune has big speed and will have to be caught. No.6 Win Allison Win is in top for and will get a good stalking trip. 1-3-6

Key Play

$2 exacta box 1-3-6 for $12

$10 win and place 1 for $20

Race 8

Just could not get to the bottom of this 40k 2 yo statebred maiden claimer the best look to be No. 5 Caught On Radar, No. 6 Phabulous Phil and No. 8 Awesome Swiss. 5-6-8
