HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 7:05 p.m.

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

Warren’s Yodeler – Speed seems to do better on Cushion Track on Friday nights; Flores will send and blinkers have been added.

Lord in Command – FTS from the Eric Guillot barn; most of those with experience don’t look like much, so this guy has a shot.

Long Shot – Ringmaster

Race 2 – 7 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Dumaani’s Gold – Good try last time, and she is capable of doing better; Michael Baze and Doug O’Neill are a hot combo.

Topaz Moon – Beaten favorite didn’t run a lick in her 2-turn debut; switch to Joel Rosario, she’s a better price tonight.

Long Shot – Tiz Ballado

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $53,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

Mr. Chairman – Many of these faced off last time in a contentious heat; Rafael Bejarano saves all the ground to the stretch.

Guts – His two turf races in Inglewood are a big improvement over his Santa Anita tries; part of a cavalry charge for home.

Long Shot – Dr Zaentz

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $51,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Lighten Up Rule – Good try last time against a tougher group than tonight; Jeff Mullins charge should improve with these.

Too Phar – Tepid chalk has cashed some checks, without winning, for Bill Spawr; she has tactical speed to sit a perfect trip.

Long Shot – Unusual Jane

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, Purse $11,000, Claiming $8,000, 4-year-olds and up

Cactus Lighting – Sleepy choice based on better than looked races two and three back; should be grinding fast in the lane.

King Palm – Suspicious that Bejarano stays loyal despite a horrendous performance last time; Cerin adding the blinkers on.

Long Shot – Bewitching Bartok

Race 6 – 1 1/8th miles (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $50,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

Cambridge Blue – Nobody rides the rail in turf races like Corey Nakatani; nerves of steel, he’ll bulldoze his way through.

Catastaire – Disappointing result last time in a race he should have been good enough; like the switch to Joel Rosario.

Long Shot – Dollar Mountain

Race 7 – 6 1/2 furlongs, $62,000 King Glorius, 4-year-olds and up

El Manuel – Was too far back early in last, too much to do late; is part owned by Jim Rome, he’ll talk racing on his show today.

Sailors Sunset – Logical chalk has an achilles heel; each time he runs a triple digit Beyer, he bounces to the moon next time.

Long Shot – Cesc

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Warren’s R Ready – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; should be taking over late.

Improvising Gal – Miserable race last time as a beaten favorite; her two races before that are fast enough to upset these.

Long Shot – Tizzalating

Best Bet – Warren’s R Ready (race 8)

Hollywood Thursday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 16/4/$24.20; Long Shots, 8/1/$7.00; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Hollywood Totals – 605/153/$1,016.80; Long Shots, 306/29/$294.20; Best Bets, 35/18/$76.40
