Horse Racing: Today at Hollywood Park, Nov. 24


Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 - 6 furlongs, Purse $18,000, Claiming $10,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Dunmore East - Rafael Bejarano is winning at 30 percent, unheard of at a major meet; he puts horses in the right place.

4 Macias - Sliding down the claiming ladder to face much easier; second start off a 6-month hiatus.

Long Shot - 2 Da Ruler

Race 2 - 6 furlongs, Purse $24,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Julio’s Gold - Reclaimed by trainer Dan Hendricks, one of the best angles in racing; speed to lead from the inside.

7 Addendum - Draw a line thru last, a miserable try on turf; she’s a much better runner on synthetics, her preferred surface.

Long Shot - 6 No Tricks for Jack

Race 3 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $56,000, Allowance, Fillies, 3-year-olds

5 Need You Now - Mike Mitchell charge has good experience in turf routes in graded stakes; strictly the one to beat.

2 Judy In Disguise - Has only run at 1 mile twice despite a lengthy grass resume; can sit close to the pace if allowed.

Long Shot - 3 Include the Aussie

Race 4 - 6 furlongs, Purse $45,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

7 Snuggley Bear - Woke up with a nice second last time under Joel Rosario; showed enough for Rafael Bejarano to take over.

2 Indianapolis - Bob Baffert has an uncoupled entry so caveat emptor; this one has already worked a million times up to now.

Long Shot - 5 Test Ride

Race 5 - 6 furlongs, Purse $18,000, Claiming $10,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

5 Swiss Bliss - Claimed by Jack Carava and spotted nicely to win; his entry could run 1-2 against this motley crew.

1 Gabbiano - Jack Carava has an uncoupled entry in here so caveat emptor; sliding down the claiming ladder to low rung.

Long Shot - 7 Magic Number

Race 6 - 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $45,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

6 My Secret Affair - Has run two different kind of races, not sure which one we’ll see today; experience does matter too.

7 Arkenstone - Typical green debut, slow early, fast late; figures to move forward in second start for Dan Hendricks.

Long Shot - 3 Kozani

Race 7 - 7 1/2 furlongs, $100,000 On Trust Handicap, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

6 Rousing Sermon - Did everything but win last time chasing Majestic City; like the parking lot post and the cut back too.

4 Cyclometer - Sprinter stretching out could provide the speed of the speed; key part will come in the final furlong.

Long Shot - 3 Compari

Race 8 - 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $48,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 Warren’s Rosebud - Interesting rider switch to Rafael Bejarano; has no speed going long, now cutting back in distance.

7 Hidethegoodstuff - Tepid chalk must overcome a parking lot post in a turf sprint; the early elbow helps the inside posts.

Long Shot - 6 Luxuriance

Race 9 - 6 furlongs, Purse $18,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Amanda - Top choice by process of elimination; sometimes at this bottom level a horse just inherits the lead.

4 Sugar High Kaylin - In a race this slow, you need to look at the FTS; this one is from a live barn in Doug O’Neill.

Long Shot - 11 Winninginfashion

Best Bet - 6 Rousing Sermon (race 7)

Hollywood Park Saturday - Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/4/$25.40; Long Shots, 9/1/$9.60; Best Bet, 1/1/$7.40

Hollywood Park Totals - 183/49/$277.80; Long Shots, 88/14/$142.00; Best Bets, 11/5/$23.60

SIMULCAST PLAY OF THE DAY - #7 Speightshill (5/2) in race 5 at Fair Grounds. For scoring purposes, we’ll make a hypothetical $2 win, place and show bet, $6 total.
