HORSE RACING

TODAY AT OAK TREE AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 7:05 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $13,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

7 Princess Beau K – Ugly race to start a Friday night card; ran flat in last, but has prior races that are better.

3 Pegastorm – Like the turn back in distance from route to sprint; figures to find her best stride late.

Long Shot – 8 Meadow Lake Queen

Race 2 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $14,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

8 Dave’s Ruler – Second last out at Fairplex should have him legged up for this; parking lot post not a problem.

5 Gobbler’s Knob – His one race for a price tag is more than competitive with these; another who will run late.

Long Shot – 3 Kim’s Leading Man

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $26,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 No Stadium – No one gets away with an easy lead when P Val’s around; stalks the favorite and grinds it out late.

1 Morganouska – Logical speed taking a big class rise facing winners for the first time; ground saving trip throughout.

Long Shot – 5 Uncle Greg

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $38,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Move On Gypsy – Trouble trip in last cost her the verdict; she has some hang in her, but deserves a clear trip.

7 Tiz Smoke Tiz Fire – Has dueled with Move On Gypsy more than once; the two, so far, have been inseparable.

Long Shot – 6 Jax El

Race 5 – 6 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

10 Unionize – P Val can overcome the parking lot post by leaving fast; big class drop can only help his chances.

2 Scored – Has been working bullets for this reduced role; has run prior races fast enough to upset these.

Long Shot – 7 Via Verde

Race 6 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $12,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

8 De Car Guy – First start off the claim by Jack Carava; closer has battled toe-to-toe with many of these before.

4 Within Reason – A Mike Mitchell cull in a race like this really stands out; need not be much to beat these.

Long Shot – 3 Tribal Teen

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $44,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

2 Medici Code – Been away exactly 1 year; he’s not big on winning, but has faced foes far superior to these today.

6 Ryehill Dreamer – Long layoff, 20 months, and in a new barn; Julio Canani can get them ready, question is fitness.

Long Shot – 3 Dixie Commander

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies, 3-year-olds

4 Pretty Kinzie – Tiny edge due to her love of the Hollywood surface; tactical speed to sit a perfect trip.

3 Warren’s Swap Fox – Sharp win in last at Fairplex should have him tight today; like the slide down in class.

Long Shot – 10 Park Time Luck

Best Bet – 6 No Stadium (race 3)

Oak Tree Thursday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 14/5/$30.40; Long Shots, 7/2/$16.60; Best Bet, 1/1/$2.80
