HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 12:30 p.m.

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

Stormin Story – Steep drop in class for this Mike Mitchell trainee; his race two back is fast enough to crush these.

Quaker Run – This pick is handicapping the trainer, Adam Kitchingman, as much as anything; on the 2-turn stretch out.

Long Shot – Call Transfer

Race 2 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

Must Be Joking – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; should grind it out.

James Prior – Leap of faith that Rafael Bejarano wouldn’t ride a mule in here; from the good Vladimir Cerin barn.

Long Shot – Lucky No. Thirteen

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $14,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Proud Garrison – Jeff Mullins has already won thrice with her; he’s ready to lose her and win another race.

Thunder and Ice – Ran a winning race for this class in last; notice she was more than 5-lengths clear of third.

Long Shot – Scout About

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $50,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

Men’s Magazine – Was given a test drive in his U.S. debut; should improve in second start off a 2-year hiatus.

Porto Santo – Could benefit from the race shape if Men’s Magazine and Liberian Freighter get in a speed duel.

Long Shot – Band of Thunder

Race 5 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $18,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Stately Appeal – No barn is hotter right now than Cliff Sise; she ran better than looked last time out.

Seven Steps – The question begs why Bejarano legs up on a horse like this; leap of faith that she’ll run.

Long Shot – Kylie’s Way

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Drama Cat – Typical career debut, slow start, fast finish into stride; switch to Bejarano for the money shot.

Sister Lucy – Tepid chalk has been bet; taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming.

Long Shot – Wild Apart

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail 20 feet), Purse $43,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds

Christmas Ship – She’s been frustrating for Jerry Hollendorfer because she has ability; gets a good trip.

Contentious – Underachiever comes west where she’ll like the firm ground; still believe she has a high ceiling.

Long Shot – Kayd Kodaun

Race 8 – 7 furlongs, Purse $8,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds

Yes He’s a Pistol – He is overdue for a good trip and race shape; like that Joe Talamo had options and sticks.

For the House – He’s won twice in a row and keeps sliding down the claiming ladder; Jack Van Berg to win.

Long Shot – Axiom

Best Bet – Stormin Story (race 1)

Hollywood Sunday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 19/4/$34.80; Long Shots, 10/3/$21.60; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Hollywood Totals – 410/108/$737.20; Long Shots, 210/21/$199.60; Best Bets, 23/11/$40.00
