HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 7:05 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

8 Preferred Mandate – Taking a small, but significant, class drop; showed a liking to synthetics in last.

2 Aeromon – Been away 10 months since Del Mar; likely faced much tougher then than he does this afternoon.

Long Shot – 7 Party Ruler

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $52,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Alienation – Talk about class relief, exits 3 graded stakes for this; fitness is her only question mark.

2 Going for a Spin – She is a grinder, but a good one at that; from the maestro Jerry Hollendorfer barn.

Long Shot – 3 Candy’s Pleasure

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $17,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Casa O – Looked like a test drive in last, now returns with Rafael Bejarano up; expect a better effort.

2 Just Heat – Tepid chalk in a very wide-open affair; his last 3 races are all fast enough to beat these.

Long Shot – 5 Luv Dragon

Race 4 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $50,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

1 Nofty – One of the few with experience that shows anything; like his speed from the rail 20 feet out.

2 Madeoftherightstuf – Looking at the FTS because the others appear too slow; the barn likes to bet too.

Long Shot – 6 Royal Heat

Race 5 – 7 1/2 furlongs, Purse $52,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

6 Galleta Monstruo – Has 4 career wins, now tries allowance condition; much better horse over synthetics.

5 Domonation – Many close-but-no-cigar finishes; reunited with Joel Rosario to try and get over the hump.

Long Shot – 4 Eye On Jacob

Race 6 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $20,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 Hot Ticket – Sliding down the claiming ladder to this career-low class; tactical speed to stalk the pace.

1 Wild Cat Lore – Stretching out around 2 turns for the first time; saves ground and grinds late.

Long Shot – 6 Lake Believe

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $60,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Blue Chagall – Runs better covered up and didn’t get that at Golden Gate; reunited again with Garrett Gomez.

4 Ferneley – Spent a miserable winter in Dubai running like crap; he should relish today’s class relief.

Long Shot – 2 Smokey Lonesome

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Blind Magic – Did everything but win last time in a solid effort; was 3 lengths clear of third in last.

3 Creston Cowboy – Adding blinkers on for graduation day; Joel Rosario may get a solid early pace to chase.

Long Shot – 10 What a Goldmine

Best Bet – 5 Alienation (race 2)
