HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

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

Magic Lantern – She has synthetic surface experience in England; showed some ability in two U.S. turf tries.

D’Elegance – Tepid chalk is strictly a leap of faith on Bob Baffert and Martin Garcia; has not show much talent.

Long Shot – Tiz Misty

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $41,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Honey Bunch – Joel Rosario exits a John Sadler to ride for David Hofmans; beaten chalk is capable of better.

Zohrah – Ran evenly in debut for Michael Pender; key for me was Rafael Bejarano rode, must have shown a.m. talent.

Long Shot – East Lake Shore

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $29,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Malibu Artiste – Logical chalk takes a subtle notch drop in class; has really improved since claimed by Mark Glatt.

My Aunt Franny – Transfers from turf to synthetics tonight; she closed fast facing cheaper stock at Golden Gate.

Long Shot – Forever My Love

Race 4 – 6 furlongs (turf), Purse $29,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

Hasty Trend – Has proven he does not need the lead to succeed; can sit off Living Word and grind it out late.

Brenthurst – Was overmatched in a first level allowance in last; like that he is spotted back with friends today.

Long Shot – Living Word

Race 5 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $43,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

Scofield Barracks – Dead late closer might sit a hair closer today under Joel Rosario; bad habit of tardy starts.

The Bat Signal – Sure to be overbet off a sharp second in last; second start off an 8-month hiatus.

Long Shot – Mensa Heat

Race 6 – 6 furlongs (turf), Purse $34,000, Claiming $40,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Jaws n’ Paws – Exits a pretty salty group in last; runs first time for a price tag, very comfortable spot.

Shesoprovocative – Suspect speedball tactics from the favorite tonight; drop in class for a price tag tonight.

Long Shot – Pay for Play

Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $43,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 3-year-olds

Domonation – Still eligible for first level allowance condition despite stakes starts; should be closing like a banshee.

Gray Zulu – Speedball from the rail has shown steady improvement; no subtle tactics for David Flores.

Long Shot – Thomas Baines

Race 8 – 1 1/16th miles (turf), $100,000 Will Rogers, 3-year-olds

Macias – Equally adept over turf or synthetics; has natural speed, but can sit just off the pace if asked.

Bogie – Dead late closer has woke up big time on grass; Alex Solis returns from Kentucky to ride for Paddy Gallagher.

Long Shot – Leroy’s Dynameaux

Race 9 – 6 furlongs, Purse $15,600, Maiden claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Blue Tango – Big rider switch to Joel Rosario for the money shot; tactical speed to sit a nice trip.

Kahlua Mist – Brice Blanc likes to take hold and make one run; was well bet in last when ran evenly.

Long Shot – Loaded Gun

Best Bet – Domonation (race 7)

Hollywood Park Saturday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/6/$46.80; Long Shots, 9/0/$0; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
