There’s a $522,957 pick six carryover at Hollywood Park tonight, and I think I’ll take a stab at it despite the fact the eighth race is one of the worst of the meeting. I mean, it’s got to be one of the worst of the year.
3rd — Surprises Welcomed and Royal Fortune
4th — Principle Secret, Yankee Visionary and Saint Paul
5th — Pacific Halo
6th — Nene, Stand Tall and Forest Phantom
7th — Position A and Sagaponack
8th — Kay S
That’s a $72 ticket. I wouldn’t spend that much on a card like this except for the fact there’s such a huge carryover. I think my two singles have solid chances. Pacific Halo in the fifth has good tactical speed from the rail and gets the services of Tyler Baze, one of the top speed riders in the game. He may not win, but he figures to be right there, and that’s about all you can hope for. I think Kay S is the best of a very weak lot in the nightcap. He ran fourth in his debut at Turf Paradise on April 28, gets the services of Victor Espinoza and figures to take a step forward with a race under his belt.
Good luck tonight!!
