today at Hollywood park

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

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

1 Ninnavee – Speed and the rail in this abbreviated sprint; Joe Talamo has a simple strategy today.

6 Time for Angie – FTS from Walther Solis who runs a solid baby barn; watch the tote board for clues.

Long Shot – 4 Tom Kha

Race 2 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $26,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Bipartisan – I like it when a horse wins while running a slower Beyer speed figure; may run the faster race two back.

1 Affrettando – Dead late closer will be coming, but in time?; also switching from turf to synthetics.

Long Shot – 4 Sanibel Sid

Race 3 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $40,000, Claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Thermal Nermal – Class relief after chasing tougher in an allowance; lone speed and the rail, the best bet in horse racing.

2 Toomanytomatoes – Claimed by the maestro Jerry Hollendorfer off a nice win; moves up one notch in class.

Long Shot – 5 Secret Cove

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $21,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Hidden Passion – Speed is always a danger, especially in a cheaper class; class relief can only help too.

6 Grand Corredora – Dead late closer will need a quick pace; sometimes a race falls apart and you keep passing horses.

Long Shot – 2 Sassy Brunette

Race 5 – 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $54,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

8 Russel’s Run – More speed and with the turf rail out 10 feet, that’s another edge; goes as fast and as far as he can.

9 Bench Light – Tepid chalk figures to sit mid-pack and try to corral the speed late; one stride late on sod in last.

Long Shot – 3 Collation

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

10 Itsalwayssomething – Flew thru the lane in debut and just missed; will win this with one step of improvement.

3 Surf N Ski – Big rider switch to Joe Talamo for the money shot; Talamo won 3 races on Thursday’s card.

Long Shot – 8 Single Launch

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $54,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 3-year-olds

5 Chief Havoc – MSW win was pretty emphatic; bred by Giant’s Causeway out of an A.P. Indy mare to run all day long.

4 Manando – Lost to his stablemate War Academy last time out; if he’s loose on the lead today, look out.

Long Shot – 8 Kid Dreams

Race 8 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $52,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

9 Airfoil – Showed solid improvement in his second career start; he has the pedigree to be a real good one with maturity.

1 Quality Plan – FTS from Bob Baffert has been working fast, what else; watch the tote board for additional clues.

Long Shot – 7 Tenkiller Kid

Best Bet – 1 Thermal Nermal (race 3)

Hollywood Park Thursday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 16/3/$19.60; Long Shots, 7/1/$6.00; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
