Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $16,000, Maiden claiming $32,000, 2-year-olds

7 All Slews Star – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; tactical speed stretching out.

3 Call Me Later – 5-of-7 in the money finishes; he’s had a lot of chances, too many for a very short-priced animal.

Long Shot – 5 Diamond Touch

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

5 Rents Paid – Dead-late closer has found a very soft spot; suspect a bevy of claim slips will be put in on this guy.

1 Master Chef – Been away 6 months, but returns with Garrett Gomez up; big class drop points to an obvious candidate.

Long Shot – 3 Five a Day

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

2 Poison Kiss – We’ll find out if her sharp debut win was legit or not; overpowered the field in the stretch run.

5 Meter Me Gone – Big class drop points out this obvious contender; leading rider Joel Rosario sits for one brush.

Long Shot – 1 Brazzle Dazzle

Race 4 – 6 furlongs (turf), Purse $38,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

7 Candace Gold – Speedball figures to try and bottom out this field; adding blinkers on for even more early speed.

2 Catchy Tune – Has closed fast in her 2 races, but sits too far back; Paco Gonzalez tries blinkers on for this try.

Long Shot – 1 Bitt a Heat

Race 5 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $43,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 2-year-olds

3 Mr Artistic M D – Kathy Walsh rarely wins with FTS; her babies improve with experience, expect the same here.

4 Gibson Home Run – Speedball will run with a target on his back; simple tactics of go as fast and as far as he can.

Long Shot – 6 Ominous Thomas

Race 6 – 7 furlongs, Purse $26,000, Claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds and up

7 Bestdressed – Dead-late closer will be finishing fastest of all; big class drop provides important class relief.

5 Cape Truth – Back class and high early speed make him ultra dangerous; Garrett Gomez saves something for the finish.

Long Shot – 3 Booyah

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles (turf), Purse $44,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Talktoomuch – Showed big improvement first off the claim by Mike Mitchell; saves ground and could upset in here.

5 Westwood Pride – Class relief from the grade 1 Matriarch for this allowance condition; chalk will be a very short price.

Long Shot – 4 Bran Jammas

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

10 Bad Boy – All he does is win regardless of the trainer; the question if he repeats his race to win his fifth straight.

11 Dee Dee’s Legacy – Parking lot post, but an ideal spot to clock the favorite; Joe Talamo will try to race ride David Flores.

Long Shot – 1 Majestic Diamond

Best Bet – 5 Rents Paid (race 2)

Hollywood Park Sunday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/5/$26.00; Long Shots, 9/1/$9.80; Best Bet, 1/1/$4.60

Hollywood Park Totals – 416/122/$685.60; Long Shots, 211/34/$335.80; Best Bets, 25/13/$45.00

SIMULCAST PICK OF THE DAY – 2 Come On Lenard (4/1) in race 5 at Fair Grounds. For scoring purposes, we’ll make a hypothetical $2 win, place and show bet, $6 total. On Sunday, Artie’s Chapter ran second at the Aqueduct paying $4.40 to place and $2.40 to show. Stats – 204/145/$1,119.30
