TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $54,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

5 U S Citizen – Just missed by a nose in last returning from a 9-month hiatus; double tough if he moves forward one step.

3 Sacred Ovation – Joe Steiner has lost sleep after his last two races on this guy; can’t lose races any closer than that.

Long Shot – 1 Fast N Furius Cat

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

3 Zuzu’s Petals – Could be a Joe Steiner daily double, surely a rarity, at least in SoCal; will be grinding late.

4 Lets Get Frisky – Draw a line thru the bad turf race and her resume looks fine; main man Rafael Bejarano up.

Long Shot – 2 Wallula Bluffs

Race 3 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 10 feet), $70,000 Tsunami Slew, 3-year-olds

5 Rosengold – Has won 3 straight for Julio Canani; given a brief break, tough to beat if ready to continue his roll.

6 Gabriel Charles – He won his only turf start, in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf; main question is stretching out in distance.

Long Shot – 3 Pure Loyalty

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $52,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

1 Ambitious Brew – Typical green debut, slow early, fast late; figures to get way overbet, but can save every bit of ground.

8 Gentlemen Pete – Leap of faith that Rafael Bejarano can carve out a trip from a parking lot post; blinkers off for this.

Long Shot – 6 Trial Spin

Race 5 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $17,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Captain Beau – Dead late closer got up in the final stride last time; note he won for $14K, now drops down to $8K.

10 Arcodoro – Tepid chalk in the hardest race on the card; race 5 should be, in the pick 5 and the pick 6.

Long Shot – 5 Simply Sharp

Race 6 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $52,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 Tayrona – When a small barn gets a top rider, that tells you something; Rafael Bejarano replacing Garrett Gomez.

9 Gianthalf – FTS from Richard Mandella is the ML chalk; has been working bullets, we’ll see how it translate in the daytime.

Long Shot – 5 Rosies Ready

Race 7 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $29,000, Claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

8 Ghost N Your Heart – Always root for Iggy Puglisi when he has a live mount; his main man has been trainer Paul Aguirre.

10 J and S Express – Claimed by Bill Spawr and raised up in class; huge trainer upgrade, improvement is expected.

Long Shot – 7 Queen of the Hill

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $54,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, Fillies and Mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Promiscuoussuances – Lone speed is one of the best bets in horse racing; Edwin Maldonado will send and not look back.

8 Tribal Peace – Was not ready for prime time in last; should improve a lot in second start off a 10-month hiatus.

Long Shot – 4 Secret Genius

Race 9 – 6 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

6 Devious Chic – Beaten favorite gets a rider switch to Mario Gutierrez; suspect he’s a lot faster than he showed in last.

9 Goodtobewild – After 3 straight seconds to start his career, is he a nibbler or will he break thru facing slowpokes.

Long Shot – 3 Maddog Maddie

Best Bet – 5 Promiscuoussuances (race 8)

Hollywood Park Saturday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/7/$60.00; Long Shots, 9/2/$13.20; Best Bet, 1/1/$3.60
