HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 7:05 p.m.

Race 1 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, 2-year-olds

Albacore Bob – Ran second in a Turf Paradise stakes, which shows enough promise to beat these; Pearson is a good trainer.

It’s in the Fridge – FTS from the crafty Peter Miller barn; these babies work down at San Luis Rey Downs and ship up ready.

Long Shot – Seven Lucky J’s

Race 2 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $51,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Bea’s Cee – Just graduated last time in a significant effort; a lot of these are commoners stuck in this NW1X condition.

America’s Friend – She’s a pathetic win prospect at 1-for-30 lifetime; but she fills out a lot of exactas and trifectas.

Long Shot – My Maloof Rocker

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

Easter Born – Like the fact he is stretching out around 2-turns off a fast paced sprint; figures to be forwardly placed.

Bob Benoit – Weak favorite in a terrible looking first leg of the pick 6; decent carryover tonight of more than $87k.

Long Shot – Sir Dynamite

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $11,000, Claiming $8,000, 4-year-olds and up

Corvinus – Was closing well last time in a much improved effort; could be overlooked again with bugboy Arambula aboard.

Preachintothechoir – Turns back in distance after a solid 2-turn try; second start off the claim by Gary Stute.

Long Shot – Dark Past

Race 5 – 1 1/16th miles, $75,000 Ferdinand Handicap, 3-year-olds and up

Tissy Fit – As difficult a race as there is in the pick 6, every horse has a shot to win it; lean to the white hot Sadler barn.

Dilemma – Switches back to synthetic surface after some good turf races; tactical speed to sit a perfect trip for the Mig.

Long Shot – Lang Field

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

Burnt – Bobby Frankel cull is knocking at the door; surprised no one has claimed her because she has very good pedigree.

Dreams Afleet – Ran fast enough to beat these last time out; if she improves a step she’ll be awful tough to handle.

Long Shot – If Not for You

Race 7 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $54,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

Within Reason – Speedball should be able to clear the field early; Brian Koriner barn has really heated up of late.

Worchester – Turns back in distance off a 2-turn route; Bobby Frankel horse appears best suited as a late closing sprinter.

Long Shot – T’aint War Sir

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

Athenry – The Jorge Periban barn has heated up in the late stages of the Inglewood meet; moves inside from a parking lot post.

Khun Dan – Had no shot last time in a quick paced sprint; should improve in a tepid paced 2-turn route full of slowpokes.

Long Shot – Maj. Trouble

Best Bet – Burnt (race 6)

Hollywood Wednesday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 15/4/$43.00; Long Shots, 8/1/$12.20; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Hollywood Totals – 829/194/$1,282.40; Long Shots, 421/40/$409.00; Best Bets, 49/20/$85.60
