HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 7 1/2 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Pink Polkadots – Claimed by Mike Mitchell and spotted nicely to graduate; need not be much in this group.

Sunny Peace – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; will be chugging late.

Long Shot – Princess Patty B

Race 2 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $24,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 2-year-olds

Scorewithcater – Claimed off a sharp maiden win by Doug O’Neill; closing style in a race packed with speed.

Beau Gris – Logical chalk has a least two speedballs to contend with inside of him; Bejarano takes over.

Long Shot – Aquicksting

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds and up

Exceeding – Huge class drop for a barn that is hot this meet; Bill Spawr has already won out on this horse.

Reality Now – Should be the primary speed; been away 9-months, but gets the great Rafael Bejarano to ride.

Long Shot – Swiss Ski

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $38,000, Allowance, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Pride – Todd Pletcher SoCal division appears loaded for bear; tactical speed to sit a perfect trip.

Candilejas – Will enjoy the class relief off two grade 1 stakes; like the turn back in distance too.

Long Shot – Malusita

Race 5 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $36,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Magic Roberta – Class relief from two stakes for this MSW; the rail in turf sprints is a decided advantage.

Fastongrass – Sharp run last time in a much improved effort; similar race will put her right there again.

Long Shot – Exotic Design

Race 6 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $9,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

Silver Vista – Rail skimming ride for Chantal Sutherland; adds blinkers on, tactical speed to protect his post.

Twin Turbo – May be overbet as stretching out around 2-turns is a big deal; also he has not one drop of speed.

Long Shot – Bodacat

Race 7 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $48,000, Optional claiming $100,000, 3-year-olds and up

Hewitts – Speedball from the turf rail could be awful tough to catch; aided by the turf rail out 15 feet today.

Delta Storm – Did not have the best of trips last time in the Turf Express; can sit a perfect stalking trip.

Long Shot – Racketeer

Race 8 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $13,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Dixieland Pop – The pick 6 has little chance of carrying over again; big class drop from MSW to maiden claiming.

Clever Caitlyn- Did a classic pop and stuff last time; her key race was two back when second in a stalking trip.

Long Shot – Paddlin Mud

Best Bet – Exceeding (race 3)

Hollywood Sunday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 16/3/$23.60; Long Shots, 8/4/$61.20; Best Bet, 1/1/$4.00

Hollywood Totals – 490/128/$860.60; Long Shots, 248/29/$304.00; Best Bets, 28/13/$48.20
