HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1:20 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $36,000, Claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds

Change Your Mask – Mike Mitchell off the claim is constant in SoCal; owner Bob Bone selects many live ones, expect improvement.

M Biarritz – Doug O’Neill has an uncoupled entry, necessary to make the race go; outside posts are stinky at this distance.

Long Shot – Outlaw Jones

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $26,000, Maiden claiming $62,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Four Paws – Like the big class drop from MSW to maiden claiming versus the favorite; her races two and three back are good.

Texas Dolly – Morning line chalk was claimed by Rafael Becerra last time out; small, but important, class rise for this.

Long Shot – Quite Beautiful

Race 3 – 1 1/4 miles, Purse $57,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 4-year-olds and up

Mostacolli Mort – His Cushion track win last time was a real crusher; not sure if he’s even facing a tougher group today.

Fire Wood – He has been stuck at this same class level now for two years; he’s consistent, 12 seconds in 28 lifetime starts.

Long Shot – Capitano

Race 4 – 4 1/2 furlongs, Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 2-year-olds

Streamin Heat – Wesley Ward did not win as many baby drag races in Arcadia as we’re accustomed too; this filly will be quick.

Comic Club – Slight favorite has shown plenty of speed in a.m. drills; Joe Talamo has been struggling to maintain his business.

Long Shot – Mountain Guide

Race 5 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $41,000, Claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds

Professnl Courtesy – Was bothered badly in the stretch last time in a key juncture of the race; his lone turf race stunk.

Doneitagain – Mitchell claimed this horse at Gulfstream, makes his SoCal debut today; this is a very evenly matched group.

Long Shot – Tracton’s Golden

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Smooch – Note she’s taking a big class drop from open claiming to non-winners of two races lifetime; will be a very short price.

No Name Just Game – Second best to Ann’s Plan last time who won again on Wednesday; will be grinding forward in the stretch.

Long Shot – Proud Garrison

Race 7 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $54,000, Optional claiming $62,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Starry Pursuit – Can sit a perfect ground saving trip, especially if Ingrid the Gambler leads; her race two back was good.

Ingrid the Gambler – Speedball fell apart last time in the much tougher Las Cienegas; gets class relief here, the one to catch.

Long Shot – Dancing Sky

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

Poet of Cloth – In Joel Rosario we trust; there is no early speed in the field, so expect him to sit a bit closer today.

Bertie Boy – Tepid chalk has been in the money his four starts, that’s better than most in here; will be grinding late.

Long Shot – Most Decorated

Best Bet – Four Paws (race 2)

Hollywood Wednesday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 16/6/$41.40; Long Shots, 8/0/$0; Best Bet, 1/1/$5.80

Hollywood Totals – 100/32/$229.60; Long Shots, 51/3/$32.20; Best Bets, 6/3/$13.00
