today at Hollywood park

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 7 1/2 furlongs, Purse $26,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Night Dance – Mike Mitchell is tough to beat on the drop; interesting he hires Garrett Gomez to ride.

2 Briteness – Switching from turf to synthetics; last race was best in a while with Rafael Bejarano up.

Long Shot – 3 Swingaway

Race 2 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Claiming $8,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

6 Warren’s Morgan – The last two races for this $8K class are good; suspect he finally has found his friends.

2 Princelada – Third start off a 4-month hiatus; the ultra class drop can only help, now or go to Phoenix.

Long Shot – 4 Michailasheartlite

Race 3 – 1 1/8th miles (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $52,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

9 Indygo F M A – Just missed in last in a game effort; parking lot post, but long run to the first turn for this.

3 Scooter Bird – Dead late closer doesn’t get cranking until 6 furlongs; has some extra ground to work with tonight.

Long Shot – 8 Dance Team

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $27,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Brannaman – Lone Bob Baffert entrant in today; this cull may be able to win on memory alone.

4 Tuckers Point – Another taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; need not be much to win.

Long Shot – 5 Captain Corrigan

Race 5 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $40,000, Claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

4 Luckarack – Has not won, or raced, on turf in quite some time; key is he’s won twice on the stuff.

1 Et Tu Walker – Sharp win last out in return to turf; like the rail post in grass sprints in Inglewood.

Long Shot – 2 Canonize

Race 6 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $57,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

6 American Blend – Did not handle the grass in last as expected; his race two back, if repeated, would beat these.

4 Rousing Sermon – Was flattered when Half Strike won next time out; finally got a confidence booster into him.

Long Shot – 1 Congenial

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $54,000, Allowance, Fillies, 3-year-olds

4 Sweet Red Cat – Closed too little too late in last; gets class relief and Garrett Gomez remains loyal to the cause.

2 Macha – Has a grinder style that gets her close but no cigar; Jerry Hollendorfer tries blinkers on tonight.

Long Shot – 6 Somethingabouther

Race 8 – 4 1/2 furlongs, Purse $52,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 2-year-olds

6 California Chrome – Just one race experience can be a major factor among babies; was well bet in career debut.

3 Better Bet – Mike Harrington babies typically run well at their home base; second start should show improvement.

Long Shot – 9 Charisma Code

Best Bet – 4 Sweet Red Cat (race 7)
