HOLLYWOOD PARK

Race 5 -- #6 Universal Peace/#8 No Stadium - Both horses are exiting the same race, a race won by Hidden Blessing wire-to-wire, Universal Peace finished second beaten a neck despite trouble and No Stadium was a half length behind Peace. Would love for them to both show up in the same race, it will be a very good exacta box.

Race 7 -- #4 Red Sun - Was coming off a layoff and going to the grass, he got bet like the race had already been run and he ran to the money with a very easy win for trainer Carla Gaines who looks to have a real good grass sprinter, he will love the 6 furlong Hollywood course. $$$$$

Race 8 -- #4 Led Advantage - Broke slow and to the inside, she got in tight on the first turn and was dead last. She than advanced on the rail leaving the backstretch, came out for room but was steadied behind horses when checking off heels, she kept coming and finished third by a neck in what was a big time effort for a 32k maiden claimer. $$$$$

GOLDEN GATE

Race 5 -- #6 Gamblers Rule - Broke slow and stumbled to be dead last, she made a wide run into the stretch and just came flying to be second beaten by a dwindling half a length.

Race 6 -- #7 Go Baroque - First time starter was crowded and took up right out of the chute and was far back to the turn, he than had to circle five wide and was coming on late. This one is a must play next time out so dig deep and go to the window and hopefully will see him before Christmas. $$$$$
