TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 7:05 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

8 U R My Candy Girl – Sliding down in maiden claiming class to the bottom; ran well enough in last to beat these slowpokes.

7 Disco Lemonade – Doug O’Neill barn has been hot of late, but mostly with Mario Gutierrez; this filly has Martin Pedroza up.

Long Shot – 6 Rich in Tradition

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Claiming $10,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Four Better – Peter Miller continues to dish out winners; eat another winner off his plate with this big drop down horse.

7 Rossi Reserve – Claimed by Javier Sierra after some good races for Vann Belvoir; well see how other person’s training works out.

Long Shot – 4 Wrinkle Room

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Tuckers Point – Has had 13 chances but never faced a field this slow; blinkers off for this Cody Autrey cull.

5 Stayo – Ran poorly in SoCal debut; not without excuses, poor start and checked mid-race, other than that it was no problem.

Long Shot – 6 One Mint Julep

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $62,000, Allowance, 4-year-olds and up

6 Barocci – Gets class relief from the grade 2 American Handicap; repeat race would absolutely crush these.

5 Old Time Hockey – Has had some gaps in his resume of late; he may have slowed a step thus this much easier task.

Long Shot – 2 Temple’s Door

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, Purse $52,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

8 Tom’s Tribute – Broke a step slow but ran OK the rest of the way; figures to improve with experience.

1 Blue Tone – Ran way too well to lose in last to Say Ow; like the cut back in distance from route to elongated sprint.

Long Shot – 5 Okaad

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

2 Strickly Class – John Sadler doesn’t win with a whole lot of FTS; this guy won for fun, but got taken by Craig Dollase.

3 Langfurs Lightning – Has been well bet in four starts since David Hofmans took over the training; should break thru soon.

Long Shot – 10 Currahee

Race 7 – 1 1/4 miles (turf, rail at 20 feet), $70,000 Lucie Manet, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Midnight Music – Tom Proctor ships in this good looking Euro mare; like the rider switch to Julien Leparoux, expect better.

2 Caelis – Gave a good account of herself as a long shot in the Santa Barbara; class relief from that grade 2 company.

Long Shot – 1 Miss Pippa

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Beautiful Spirit – Mario Gutierrez has been riding hot of late; note how patient he is and saves some horse for the end.

9 Scary Fast – Not seen in 15 months off a pop and stop debut; returns for a bottom level price tag, but from a live barn.

Long Shot – 4 Royal Weekend

Best Bet – 8 U R My Candy Girl (race 1)

Hollywood Park Thursday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/4/$32.40; Long Shots, 9/3/$34.60; Best Bet, 1/1/$2.80
