Post Time Noon

Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $31,000, Claiming $32,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Havens Lake – Good effort last time for a $50k price tag, now dropping to $32k; switching from turf to Cushion tonight.

Princess Susan M – Another strong candidate switching from turf to Cushion track; like the turn back in distance too.

Long Shot – Beau Chant

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

Syndicator – Appears to be developing seconditis, but to his credit he is improving with each start; will be along in time.

Wayne Manor – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; his race two back for a tag was good.

Long Shot – Tizsong

Race 3 – 6 furlongs (turf), Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Solar Miss – All the logical contenders drew the parking lot posts; slender choice because Bejarano can make a difference.

Private Quarters – Drew the worst post of all; Brian Koriner babies typically improve a lot in their second career start.

Long Shot – Precious Union

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $51,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

Street Lights – Should be ready to fire his best in third start off a 11-month sabbatical; great try in last losing effort.

Usurp – Monster MSW win for Ron Ellis; he switches to the main man, Rafael Bejarano, but figures to get way overbet today.

Long Shot – Winsome Charm

Race 5 – 1 1/4 miles (turf), $300,000 Charlie Whittingham Memorial Handicap, 3-year-olds and up

Champs Elysess – Was forced to move early last time due to a dawdling pace; Bejarano will take back and make one big run.

Monzante – Appeared overmatched last time in the Mervyn LeRoy; tries turf marathon where Mike Mitchell has a magical touch.

Long Shot – Artiste Royal

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds

Yankee Station – Very good debut considering trainer John Shirreffs doesn’t wind them too tight; expect improvement today.

Ace High Hand – Beaten favorite ran well last time off a 11-month sabbatical; figures to improve a step putting him right there.

Long Shot – Victor’s Cry

Race 7 – 1 1/8th miles (turf), $175,000 Honeymoon Handicap, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Missit – Won her U.S. debut and I doubt if Ben Cecil had her really cranked up; her upside potential has yet to be reached.

Sweeter Still – She has shown a ton of guts in dogfights in her last four starts; tactical speed to sit a perfect trip.

Long Shot – Bel Air Sizzle

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $31,000, Claiming $32,000, 4-year-olds and up

Spot the Diplomat – Sliding down the claiming ladder for Carla Gaines; her barn has cooled after a monstrous Santa Anita meet.

Gray Black N White – Fought gamely in a rapidly paced turf sprint last time; returns to Cushion track where he’s done well.

Long Shot – Hit and Hope

Race 9 – 1 mile (turf), $75,000 Redondo Beach, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Wake Up Maggie – There is so much speed in here, the race shape favors a closer; Joe Talamo is as patient as they come.

Passified – Dead game effort to lose a photo off a 7-month hiatus; she has proven she does not need the lead to succeed.

Long Shot – Lemon Chiffon

Race 10 – 7 1/2 furlongs, $100,000 Ack Ack Handicap, 3-year-olds and up

Bold Chieftain – I’ve always liked this horse, and have cashed a few times on him; Russell Baze can sit a stalking trip.

Tropic Storm – Speedy win last time with a promise of more on the stretch out; his form improved a lot over synthetics.

Long Shot – Dixie Meister

Race 11 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $14,000, Claiming $10,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Excessive Tale – Failed first time off the claim for Frank Monteleone; taken to win maybe second time off the claim.

Spy Aly – Steve Knapp likes to win on the drop and this mare is really dropping in class, like an anchor; flash early speed.

Long Shot – Bold Cleo

Best Bet – Champs Elysess (race 5)

Hollywood Thursday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 15/3/$12.80; Long Shots, 7/2/$16.80; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Hollywood Totals – 518/136/$877.20; Long Shots, 263/23/$240.20; Best Bets, 30/16/$68.40
