HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1:20 p.m.

Race 1 – 7 1/2 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Starter allowance $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Chanel My Belle – Beaten chalk in her debut on Cushion track; if she rebounds to her race two back, she’ll win this.

Chestnut Chips – Fine debut win albeit facing a much softer group than she sees today; will sit in arrears and rally late.

Long Shot – Cheese Face

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $18,000, Maiden claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds and up

Awesome Graf – Beaten chalk taking a small, but significant, class drop today; suspect Pedroza will be more patient.

Eagle Ridge – Dead late closer is another taking a class drop to face easier; flattered upon exiting a key race.

Long Shot – Silver Wind

Race 3 – 6 furlongs, Purse $51,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

Grinding It Out – He figures to get slightly overlooked in a tough heat; tactical speed to lead or follow close up.

Haraldo – Chilean import was very impressive winning his U.S. debut; has winning ways finishing first in 7-of-10 starts.

Long Shot – Cape Town King

Race 4 – 1 1/8th miles (turf), Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Aussie Bird – Dead late closer should offer plenty of value in a wide open race; chased a top filly two races ago.

Tee Off – Tepid chalk still hasn’t proven much after her U.S. debut; she’ll be favored but is facing a stern task.

Long Shot – Polo Lounge

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, Purse $49,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

Hewitts – Has not done much wrong in two very good races; he stretches out a bit and is facing winners for the first time.

Temecula Creek – Dead late closer chased a lone speed winner in Black Seventeen; should see a bit more pace to chase.

Long Shot – Gotthatfeeling

Race 6 – 7 furlongs, Purse $31,000, Claiming $32,000, 4-year-olds and up

Fighting City Hall – Like the turn back in distance from 2-turn routes to this elongated sprint; will be closing strongly.

Sunday Nap – Speedball will need to avoid a speed duel to do well; love the way horses are running out of the Koriner barn.

Long Shot – Indian Weaver

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf), $300,000 Shoemaker Breeders’ Cup Mile, 3-year-olds and up

Kip Deville – Slight edge in a very difficult stakes; he could not be any gamer than in his last two stakes triumphs.

The Tin Man – 9-YO returning off an 8-month sabbatical; hard to believe that he has gotten better and better with age.

Long Shot – Becrux

Race 8 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $46,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

I’m All Out – Talamo has the ability to relax his mounts and get them to run on late; this guy only needs a path late.

Instant Action – Logical chalk did everything but win in a monster debut effort; only fear is he’ll bounce off that race.

Long Shot – Latin Rhythms

Race 9 – 1 1/8th miles (turf), $300,000 Gamely Breeders’ Cup, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Price Tag – It remains to be seen how good she really is; her win last time was the easiest one-length win you’ll ever see.

Citronnade – Part of the Frankel uncoupled entry that figures to dominate this race; she could be lone speed, dangerous.

Long Shot – Three Degrees

Race 10 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds

Town Thief – Continues sliding down the claiming ladder to this career low level; tactical speed to sit a perfect trip.

Dixie Banker – Dead late closer is another dropping way down in class; Mandella is adding blinkers on for this try.

Long Shot – Papago Road

Best Bet – Price Tag (race 9)

Hollywood Sunday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/6/$36.00; Long Shots, 8/1/$7.80; Best Bet, 1/1/$3.40

Hollywood Totals – 432/104/$672.20; Long Shots, 212/28/$314.60; Best Bets, 25/12/$47.80
