Horse Racing: Today at Hollywood Park, May 24

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

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

5 Raise the Hoof – Beaten favorite in career debut; Rafael Bejarano remains loyal, key change may be blinkers on.

4 Randino – FTS from the Peter Miller barn; he’s firing on all cylinders, hires Garrett Gomez to ride.

Long Shot – 3 Go First

Race 2 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $26,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Cassandra Lynne – Big class drop offers an upset chance at a square price; suspect will sit a trip and rally late.

4 Scat Patty – Logical chalk has the speed to lead wire to wire; these are her friends at this class level.

Long Shot – 6 Suances Luck

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $30,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

2 Jet Warrior – FTS from the Jerry Hollendorfer-Rafael Bejarano combo; watch the tote board for additional clues.

5 Saint Leo – Draw a live thru a lousy turf sprint and his resume looks OK; has speed to lead or follow close up.

Long Shot – 4 Single Launch

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $52,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Thisonesforricky – Marty Jone is off to a slow start this meet; I suspect that will change soon as he’s stabled here.

6 Lake Maracaibo – Parking lot post is not bad in such a tiny field; Mike Smith is the main man for Bill Spawr.

Long Shot – 3 Smooth Talker

Race 5 – 1 1/2 miles (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $54,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

8 Ain – Today’s distance is the same as the marathon Belmont Stakes; a galloper’s race, you need a long winded sort.

7 Niagara Falls – His last three starts have been at, or near, this marathon distance; takes a mile just to get warmed up.

Long Shot – 3 Shadow Runner

Race 6 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $35,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

9 R S Walton – Finally broke thru with a maiden win for a $40K price tag; that race got him eligible for this condition.

10 Solid South – Had a tough trip in last, which cost Joe Steiner the mount; Garrett Gomez takes over tonight.

Long Shot – 4 Bio Pro

Race 7 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $57,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 Egg Drop – Highly regarded filly tries turf for the first time; ran flat as a pancake in the Santa Lucia.

1 Creditcardroulette – Like the rail posts in these Inglewood turf sprints; Garrett Gomez will sit for one run.

Long Shot – 6 Conkate

Race 8 – 7 1/2 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Aqua Fever – Jeff Mullins barn is off to a fabulous start this meet; like the subtle cut back in distance today.

9 Big Note – Mike Mitchell is shoving this horse down our throats; could win by many lengths, or not make the course.

Long Shot – 10 Blake

Best Bet – 3 Egg Drop (race 7)

Hollywood Park Thursday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 15/3/$16.60; Long Shots, 8/1/$20.20; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
