TODAY AT OAK TREE AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $15,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds

2 Manofgold – Has won two of his last three starts; appears in peak form to run another good race.

5 Cat Brando – Logical chalk just broke his maiden; part of Doug O’Neill uncoupled entry so caveat emptor.

Long Shot – 1 Milty Way

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

4 Gifted Student – Logical chalk ran well in return off a 15-month hiatus; his fastest race came at Hollywood.

2 Gotham Junior – Vote of Rafael Bejarano on this FTS for Eoin Harty is enough for me; watch the tote board for clues.

Long Shot – 5 Five a Day

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $17,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 Torrey Cliffs – Clever win in last on the class drop; wins off the claim by Jeff Bonde, may have regained his stride.

1a Malusita – Claimed by Sal Gonzalez from Doug O’Neill at Del Mar; been away 2 months, owns 4 wins in Inglewood.

Long Shot – 6 Sweetsouthernqueen

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $13,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Cynical Wager – First start for new trainer Eric Kruljac; he wins 25 percent first time out, last race was good enough.

5 Wild Hombre – Logical chalk ran second best in a well-bet debut; figures to take all the money again with Joel Rosario.

Long Shot – 6 Big Bad Boo

Race 5 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $40,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

6 Call Me Honcho – Like the turn back in distance to a mile; is 4-for-4 in the money over Inglewood green.

5 Lucky Rave – Been away 5 months but showed talent before the hiatus; key question will be his fitness level.

Long Shot – 7 Price

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $11,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Fair Chase – Third start off a 5-month hiatus; tactical speed to sit a perfect trip, will be grinding late.

11 No Saint But Sweet – Must overcome a parking lot post, but has no early speed anyway; will sit in arrears for one brush.

Long Shot – 5 Warren’s Too Cool

Race 7 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $38,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies, 2-year-olds

5 Teddy’s Promise – After a sharp debut, ran like a turkey in last; favored both times, let’s see who shows tonight.

4 Bathing Beauty – FTS from the ultra-hot Cliff Sise barn; he’s 3-for-3 at the meet and hires P Val for debut.

Long Shot – 1 Distant Glow

Race 8 – 1 mile (turf), $100,000 Harold C Ramser Handicap, Fillies, 3-year-olds

5 Go Forth North – Never had a chance in the grade 1 Yellow Ribbon; big rider switch to David Flores, nice upset chance.

3 Antares World – Consistent sort shows equal talent on sod or synthetics; best if she has a target to aim at.

Long Shot – 8 Warren’s Jitterbug

Race 9 – 7 furlongs, Purse $12,000, 3-year-olds and up

9 Bad Boy – Was an easier-than-looked winner in last; dropped in class by Julio Canani, leap of faith he can repeat the race.

5 Bandeira Union – Ran 2 good races at Del Mar off the claim by Doug O’Neill; entered in an easy spot for return.

Long Shot – 8 Mind the Minister

Best Bet – 9 Bad Boy (race 9)

Oak Tree Saturday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/2/$106.20; Long Shots, 8/0/$0; Best Bet, 1/1/$3.00

Oak Tree Totals – 202/56/$453.20; Long Shots, 97/12/$92.00; Best Bets, 12/4/$13.60
