Horse Racing


By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 - 1 mile (turf), Purse $44,000, Claiming $50,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Startjumpin Marnie - She hasn't run this cheap in quite some time; tiny edge by saving ground throughout.

3 Farley Star - The two favorites met on Jan. 7 at SA and were a head apart; could be that close again here.

Long Shot - 2 Bab At The Bowster

Race 2 - 6 furlongs, Purse $30,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, 3-year-olds and up

4 Private Bounty - Among many taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; exits a key race.

8 Meadow Road - Has underachieved by not passing horses in the deep stretch; exits a quick bullet workout.

Long Shot - 6 Screaming Destiny

Race 3 - 6 furlongs, Purse $26,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

8 Queen Mariles - Mike Mitchell off the claim is a very good thing; he has an uncoupled entry so caveat emptor.

4 Cato Major - Been second four straight races off the claim by Jack Carava; dead-late closer will need some pace.

Long Shot - 6 Desert Flight

Race 4 - 1 1/16th miles (turf), Purse $52,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 3-year-olds

1 Cloud Man - Suspect he has the most upside of any in the field; saves ground under Corey Nakatani.

2 Great Warrior - Tepid chalk in a wide-open affair; beat my choice last time mainly with a better trip.

Long Shot - 7 Boxeur des Rues

Race 5 - 7 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Point Mugu - Like the turn back in distance for this elongated sprint; adding blinkers on and drops in class.

8 Our Senior Moments - Tepid chalk is among the few who ran well in last; flattered when Every Ego won next out.

Long Shot - 9 Princethefifth

Race 6 - 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $35,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Dime - Rough trip in last and could rebound at a square price; more than capable of upsetting these.

7 Requisition - Logical chalk in another wide-open affair; cashed a paycheck in each of his last four starts.

Long Shot - 4 Big Burly Boy

Race 7 - 1 mile (turf), Purse $50,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

9 Roxanne O - Has lost twice at 4/1 odds, now you can get her at 10/1; too early to give up on her yet.

5 Artuya - Bob Baffert has an uncoupled entry trying turf for the first time; this gal is the shorter odds.

Long Shot - 7 Sea Song's Grace

Race 8 - 6 furlongs, $100,000 Los Angeles Handicap, 3-year-olds and up

1 Amazombie - Does not get the respect for running some fabulous sprint wins; suspect will leave to protect his post.

7 Cost of Freedom - Speedball tactics from a parking lot post for the chalk; 8-YO has always loved Hollywood Park.

Long Shot - 6 Supreme Summit

Race 9 - 1 1/8th miles (turf), $250,000 Gamely, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Eclair de Lune - Ran a much-better-than-looked race in last at Keeneland; big value play at 12/1 odds.

2 Cozi Rosie - Tepid chalk in an evenly-matched field; the winner will likely have the best trip of all.

Long Shot - 3 Turning Top

Race 10 - 7 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

10 Expensive Pens - The less races the better at this bottom class level; he has a chance still to improve.

7 Clocker Moment - He's had 11 chances, but he is fast enough to win; hope you spread if live in the pick 6.

Long Shot - 8 Eyesablazin

Best Bet - 1 Eclair de Lune (race 9)

Hollywood Park Sunday - Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/4/$22.20; Long Shots, 9/3/$26.80; Best Bet, 1/1/$3.00

Hollywood Park Totals - 408/108/$755.80; Long Shots, 196/34/$314.80; Best Bets, 23/8/$33.40

SIMULCAST PICK OF THE DAY - 11 Tizway (5/1) in race 10 at Belmont Park. For scoring purposes, we'll make a hypothetical $2 win, place and show bet, $6 total. On Sunday, Ruthenia was scratched at Monmouth Park. Stats - 87/53/$403.30
