Wow … there is a winter in Southern California after all. We have rain today at Hollywood Park, witnessed by the fact we had two scratches in the first race Wednesday, leaving us with a three-horse field.
Here are a few horses to check out:
4th — Ann’s Plan and Joe Talamo will be tough here. Turks Rebecca also figures, and Red Lollipop is the long-shot play.
5th — Cool Haleigh looks strong with Joel Rosario aboard, and Carmel Coffee also looks live in this spot. Held Fast will set the pace and could go gate to wire in a race taken off the turf because of the rain.
6th — Delaware Doe switches to Garrett Gomez after finishing third at Golden Gate. Trigranaut is the long-shot play.
7th — Double Dip could give Gomez back-to-back wins, and Street Match also figures to fire in this allowance event.
8th — This race is also off the turf and I think three horses have good shots here — Our Man Luke, Lahcotah and Hog’s Hollow.
Good luck today!
