HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1:20 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Humidity – Faltered as the favorite in last, can make amends facing a terrible field; will be along in time.

Dreams Afleet – Vladmir Cerin filly ran evenly in debut; she can be taken to improve in second start.

Long Shot – Golden Volponi

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $51,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Millestan – Seems like this race was carded to help somebody, most likely Neil Drysdale; Bejarano gets the call.

Little Boss Chick – Stretches out for the first time since her career debut; suspect will showcase early speed.

Long Shot – Tizsweetdreams

Race 3 – 7 furlongs, Purse $24,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, 3-year-olds and up

Elusive Chief – Logical chalk has run two decent races in his career; can stalk the pace nicely from the wide out.

Ascari – Been away since last July at Del Mar; taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming.

Long Shot – Geauxforthedeaux

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $33,000, Claiming $32,000, 4-year-olds and up

Gallardo – Was left with too much to do last time, now Koriner drops him another notch; key is Bejarano remains loyal.

Gold Trim – Hard fought win in last and there should be something left in the tank; will be grinding hard in the lane.

Long Shot – A Gallant Discover

Race 5 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $51,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

Colgan’s Chip – Liked his 2-turn MSW win and now tries turf for the first time; suspect he is up to the challenge.

Put It in Writing – Just missed last time in a sharp try; note that he lost his rider, Tyler Baze, to Colgan’s Chip.

Long Shot – Maui Mark

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

Crash Landing – Was going well late in his career debut for Marty Jones; slight improvement can get his photo taken.

Ribald – Another debut horse who was running well in the late stages; exits a bullet workout signaling current form.

Long Shot – Deal Me Out

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $53,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

Sassou – Faltered in last facing tougher after a sharp win two races ago; Dupuis switches to Bejarano for the money shot.

Marcus Brutus – Unknown factor as Irish import is making his U.S. debut; his experience overseas will help him here.

Long Shot – Belafonte

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

Lethal Heat – She chased Million Dollar Run in the Railbird to no avail; suspect that race was flukey, should improve.

Tasha’s Miracle – Game second in the Railbird chasing Million Dollar Run who just freaked; has faced some classy foes.

Long Shot – Million Dollar Run

Race 9 – 6 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Claiming $20,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Lucky Mama – Frank Monteleone has been one of the best lately winning off the claim; don’t overlook her from the rail.

Stormy Taters – Ran miserably in last facing $50k company; key for me is Bejarano stays loyal despite that last disaster.

Long Shot – Rail Dancer

Best Bet – Gallardo (race 4)

Hollywood Saturday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 22/2/$33.40; Long Shots, 11/2/$15.80; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
