Horse Racing, Hollywood Park, May 6

Today at Hollywood Park

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $37,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

4 Confucious Junior – Mixed results in last 3 starts over Arcadia sod; his better running has come over synthetics.

6 Panther’s Claw – Mike Pender has an uncoupled entry, so eyeball Magic Beam; dead late closer will fly late.

Long Shot – 5 Magic Beam

Race 2 – 4 1/2 furlongs, Purse $52,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

8 Papa G. T. – Tough parking lot post for this abbreviated sprint; respect the connections of Doug O’Neill and Joel Rosario.

2 Confederate Recon – Ran well in debut for a $100K price tag; obviously, you don’t see many claims for horses at $100K.

Long Shot – 4 No Rachmones

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $33,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 J P Jammer – Third start off the claim by Dan Hendricks; returns to synthetics after two even turf routes.

5 Coluda – This is for forgiving handicappers only; his race two back is fast enough to beat these.

Long Shot -4 E Z Led

Race 4 – 7 furlongs, Purse $37,000, Starter allowance $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 My Diane – Ran evenly in the slop last time; returns to synthetics where her one race was a solid second.

2 Ricspretentiousgal – Daylight maiden claiming graduate; facing winners for the first time for Kentucky Derby winning trainer Doug O’Neill.

Long Shot – 7 Dustin’s Magic

Race 5 – 6 furlongs, Purse $30,000, Claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

7 Bertran Hill – Last time he ran for this $20K price tag, he won; tactical speed to sit a decent trip.

5 Hunch – This is a red flag drop if you ever saw one; if Hunch is even 80 percent of his old self, he can still win.

Long Shot – 2 Position A

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $54,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 Melissa Rose – Must be nice for John Sadler to replace a Kentucky Derby winning jockey with Joel Rosario.

6 Chukchi Sunrise – Speedball figures to set the early pace; class drop can only help her chances of holding on.

Long Shot – 4 Trapper’s Bounty

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $54,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 3-year-olds

6 Midnight Crooner – Was thrown to the wolves last out in the Blue Grass; this is the kind of spot to rebuild confidence.

5 Risky Reward – Claimed by John Sadler and broke his MSW in a turf route; 3-YO may have an interest upside to him.

Long Shot – 3 Shaun Washington

Race 8 – 5 furlongs, $70,000 Time to Leave, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Izzy Rules – Ran fast and hard versus males last time at Oaklawn; returns home and facing her own gender, both plusses.

1 Teddy’s Promise – Been away 3-months with a brief freshening; will save all the ground and come grinding late.

Long Shot – 6 Rumor

Race 9 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $52,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

12 Sassy and Single – Looks best in here but has to overcome a tough parking lot post; Rafael Bejarano has his work cut out.

5 Unbridled Ambition – Tepid chalk in a wide open affair; beaten favorite in both career starts, both turf sprints.

Long Shot – 3 Zanbo

Best Bet – 6 Midnight Crooner (race 7)

Betfair Hollywood Park Saturday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 21/5/$54.60; Long Shots, 10/1/$15.60; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Betfair Hollywood Park Totals – 122/24/$187.20; Long Shots, 60/11/$110.60; Best Bets, 7/1/$3.40
