HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 5 furlongs, Purse $41,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Cayanna – Rafael Bejarano burned a ton of bettor’s money on Saturday; he could get the Angel Cordero, Jr. NY treatment soon.

Deo’s Secret – Ran the best speed figure of the lot in last; still it’s hard to accept short odds from a low percentage barn.

Long Shot – Chk Chk Boom

Race 2 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $44,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

All Due Respect – Showed class in chasing Blind Luck and Tanda; Mike Smith gave a Hall of Fame ride on Drosselmeyer to win the Belmont.

Our Road Scholar – A. C. Avila barn is cooling off a few degrees; still there is enough in the gas tank to make a mark in here.

Long Shot – Broken Silence

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $29,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds

Mr. Saturdaynight – Ran like a short horse in last off a 3-month hiatus; class drop and race should tighten him up.

Strikingly Sinful – Lost precious ground at the start in last; reunited with Victor Espinoza who knows his quirks very well.

Long Shot – Coo Cachoo

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles (turf), Purse $42,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Blue Tambourine – Nearly wired the field last out in a good try; draws inside to save ground and could be lone early speed.

Good Vibration – Well bet in both career starts despite minor awards; tries turf and route for first time under Rafael Bejarano.

Long Shot – First Settler

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, Purse $46,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

Bestdressed – Ran too good to lose in the Tiznow for Cal-breds; tries open company again while in top form.

New Bay – Dangerous off the claim by top trainer Mike Mitchell; the tote board will be singing if live under Rafael Bejarano.

Long Shot – Charm N Chuck

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

Fly Boy – Sharp win last time, like him despite Rafael Bejarano getting off; shown steady improvement for trainer Doug O’Neill.

Sammy’s a Runnin’ – Was raising a ruckus in last when ran out of ground; parking lot post to clock the early speed.

Long Shot – Detroit Donnie

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $53,000, Allowance, 4-year-olds and up

Riviera Cocktail – Liked his win last time and he may finally be getting it; has had the potential to be a good one.

Meteore – Rafael Bejarano leaves Riviera Cocktail to ride for Richard Mandella; first off the bench in 6 months.

Long Shot – Great Siege

Race 8 – 1 1/16th miles, $150,000 Hollywood Oaks, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Switch – Best time to upset a champion is either off the shelf or exiting a taxing win; in receipt of 10 pounds today.

Blind Luck – How she won the KY Oaks remains an optical illusion; she lives dangerous but keeps getting the job done.

Long Shot – Antares World

Race 9 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $15,600, Maiden claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

The Full Lavino – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; Rafael Bejarano for the money shot.

Scrutinizing Kat – Ran a winning race for this bottom barrel class in last; if he improves one step, he can upset here.

Long Shot – Our Juke Box Hero

Best Bet – All Due Respect (race 2)

Hollywood Park Saturday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 21/5/$30.20; Long Shots, 10/0/$0; Best Bet, 1/1/$5.00
