Hollywood Park Picks 7/2/07


Race 1: Queen Holly- by the fast horse Yankee Victor, this filly boasts two good works coming into this race and gets the super apprentice Talamo aboard.

Race 2: So Long Sonoma-this filly is a seconditis canidate but has been facing much much better then the others in here.

Race 3: Skipaslew- Sort of sad to see this old class horse in an 8k claimer, but he's taking a huge drop in class for one of the best claiming trainers in the game in Carava. Should win this race.

Race 4: Visayas- there is a ton of speed in this contest and this horse looks to have a big pace advantage. Also has a super 46 and 4 last work on the 24th, seems to signal a horse in good form.

Race 5: Power shift- this horse was wide the whole way in his last race and tired, but if you toss out that performance, he's won 3 of his last 5 with the losses both 2nd place finishes, I expect him to win.

Race 6: Hottest-this filly comes from the Sherman barn and has been working up to this race over at fairplex. Check out the june second drill 6f in 1:13 flat, thats a smoke'en time over there. Will probrably get bet down but should still get a good chunk of that 5-1 morning line.

Race 7: Desire to Excel- the 12-1 morning line on this filly is a joke. She's finished close to 3 nice fillies in her last 3 starts-Sindy with an S, Boca Grande, and Cotton Blossom, all of whom with be odds on in this race. Should get the pace to run at.

Race 8: Reflex-how about this first time starter by Songandaprayer, trainer stats aren't great, but with Pedroza in the irons and a 15-1 morning line, I'll take a shot.
