HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 1

No. 4 Quickly Gone may be long gone if able to clear early, No. 6 Debating Society and No. 7 Bubbley Blonde will try and run Gone down in the stretch. 4-6-7

Race 2

Wow you just can’t find a weaker group of 32k maiden claimers in Southern California than these. No. 1 Zohan has had his chances but this will be his easiest assignment to date. A first time starter makes sense and we will use the Howard Zucker trainee No. 2 Price.

1-2

Key Play

$2 double

1st 4-6-7

2nd 1-2 for $12

Race 3

Talk about bad, this race is a joke for Southern California racing as these 8k claimers belong at Turf Paradise and that could be to steep for them. No. 3 Warrens Flyin High will be the speed and just may not stop today if he makes the lead. No. 7 Streets Of Heaven ran behind Flyin High last time out and could close and get a piece today. 3-7

Race 4

No. 3 Stash says they will have to catch her to win. 3

Race 5

We have two HTW entered in this race and as we said in my HTW column we would love to see these two who ran together last time out come back in the same race and here we are with No. 6 Universal Peace and No. 8 No Stadium. Peace will try and run down No Stadium and they just could hit the wire together. 6-8

Key Play

$20 Q 6-8 for $20

No. 10 Smooth And Savvy is in town from Golden Gate for top Northern California trainer Steven Miyadi and he looks to have him spotted for the win. 10
