HORSE RACING

TODAY AT OAK TREE AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 7:05 p.m.

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

1 Warren’s Rose – None of these really wants to go 2 turns; someone has to win so might as well be Joel Rosario.

3 Long Legged Lovely – Tepid chalk has finished in the money in 4-of-6 tries; unfortunately most are at this level.

Long Shot – 6 Warrens Matchmaker

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $13,000, Claiming $10,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Spanish Ice – Logical chalk off a winning race at Fairplex; drops further in class for trainer Craig Dollase.

6 Stroppy – Even run first off the claim by Blake Heap; chance to be overlooked for low-percentage barn.

Long Shot – 4 Church Avenue

Race 3 – 1 1/4 miles (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $44,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

3 Where’s The Remote – Gave a grade-A try in a grade 1 stakes last time; really on the improve on grass for Mike Mitchell.

1 Worth Repeating – Ran a better-than-looked race in the Hirsch; finished behind the favorite, Where’s The Remote.

Long Shot – 4 Romp

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $12,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 Misinjennuous – Taking a huge red-flag class drop for Doug O’Neill; claimed for $25K not too long ago.

5 Mystery Bird – Another sliding down the claiming ladder; takes the blinkers off this sinking ship.

Long Shot – 6 Warrens Highroller

Race 5 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $38,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

7 Zohrah – Talk about a big rider switch to Rafael Bejarano; turns back in distance, improving with each start.

2 Elegant – Twice beaten chalk in turf sprints at Santa Anita; been away 7 months, only question is her fitness.

Long Shot – 4 Hot Affair

Race 6 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, Cal-breds, 2-year-olds

1 Call Me Later – This is a race you can throw a blanket over the field; tiny edge to hot riding Joel Rosario.

7 Swiss G’s – Speedball keeps the right rider in P Val; clearly will play catch me if you can.

Long Shot – 2 Love Five Plus Two

Race 7 – 1 1/8th miles (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $40,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

2 Dynamic Range – Mike Mitchell on the drop is a dangerous angle; looking for a win after aiming sky high.

4 California Soldier – Logical chalk has been a find off the claim by John Sadler; may have reached his Peter Principle.

Long Shot – 5 Juniper Pass

Race 8 – 7 furlongs, Purse $13,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Kim’s Leading Man – Like the turn back in distance from route to elongated sprint; best stride will come late.

2 Criminal Intention – Hardest race on the card is in the finale; Jeff Mullins has an uncoupled entry, caveat emptor.

Long Shot – 3 Coffee Gossip

Best Bet – 3 Where’s The Remote (race 3)

Oak Tree Sunday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/5/$38.00; Long Shots, 9/1/$13.20; Best Bet, 1/1/$3.20
