HORSE RACING

TODAY AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 7:05 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Claiming $20,000, 4-year-olds and up

Semi Lost – Mullins is never afraid to drop down to win, just don’t try claiming from him in those spots; dead late closer tactics.

Olympic Miler – We’ll see in race one how the early speed will hold up on Friday night; goes as fast and as far as he can.

Long Shot – Celtic Sword

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

Peace Accord – Won’t need much imagination to see a $10 Mullins daily double; claimed from Sadler, three good works since.

Steamy Story – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to claiming; Chavez has ridden few horses, but he’s always tough.

Long Shot – Oakland Avenue

Race 3 – 1 mile (turf) $100,000 Flawlessly, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Ashley’s Kitty – Was overmatched in the Hollywood Oaks, should find these much more accomodating; closing fast from left field.

Passified – Logical chalk runs fast enough to win, but needs to have things his own way; speedy sort will need a softer pace.

Long Shot – Spenditallbaby

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $46,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

Cherokee Tear – Baffert uncoupled entry looking awful tough in here; pulling five pounds with Talamo is like stealing money.

Wineshine – Other Baffert loses the services of Talamo to the favorite; off the turf, ran much better in Cushion track debut.

Long Shot – Awesome Shine

Race 5 – 1 mile (turf), $1 Million Cash Call Mile, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Precious Kitten – Frankel has a talented uncoupled entry in play, this is the longer price of the pair; saves all the ground.

Price Tag – Ran a huge race in the Gamely trying to catch lone speed stablemate Citronnade; one of the best in the division.

Long Shot – Lady of Venice

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $49,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

Sixcess – Gets big time class relief from the Barretts to face a first level allowance; from the white hot Ellis barn too.

Dr. Sinatra – Exiting a career best, which still wasn’t good enough to win; bugboy Talamo figures to sit and make one run.

Long Shot – El Banco

Race 7 – 7 furlongs, $150,000 A Gleam Handicap, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Pussycat Doll – Grade 1 mare is facing a field at a much lower level; this elongated sprint distance appears to be her best.

Somethinaboutlaura – Hard knocking mare has won more than $800k the hard way with 14 career wins; she rarely runs a bad one.

Long Shot – Theverythoughtof U

Race 8 – 6 furlongs (turf), Purse $31,000, 4-year-olds and up

Bills Paid – Dead late closer has run well recently, but needs the help of others to win; off the turf angle for Cushion track.

Midwesterner – Been away 9-months but like that Espinoza chose to ride this comebacker; tactical speed to sit a nice trip.

Long Shot – Smudgeledo

Race 9 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

Tejano Forever – Been away 20-months, but is facing a full field devoid of talent; work pattern suggest he’s doing OK.

Dr. Oliver – The less starts at this bottom level the better, thus one start is a positive; Espinoza stays for the finale.

Long Shot – Rocky Joe

Best Bet – Pussycat Doll (race 7)

Hollywood Thursday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 15/4/$22.60; Long Shots, 7/2/$13.60; Best Bet, 1/1/$5.40

Hollywood Totals – 915/213/$1,405.60; Long Shots, 444/62/$664.80; Best Bets, 54/24/$102.80
