Superfecta Sunday at Hollywood, Episode 2

After a thrilling Kentucky Derby yesterday, we take in a sprint stakes across the country in lovely California.

Betfair Hollywood Park Race 3 {Time to Leave~5 furlongs~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Stakes}
A small group of seven gals will saunter onto the track for this feature stakes race.  There is plenty of speed in here.  Only two like to come from off the pace and could have an enjoyable ride if things get too fast and furious.  It does not appear to be too easy of a 10 CENT Superfecta box to cobble together, but try we must.

#3 Teddy's Promise (V. Espinoza / Ellis) appears to have a solid edge with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four healthy, peaking workouts.  She should be forwardly placed and has done well over the Hollywood cushion track.

#7 Hidinginplainsight (Talamo / Puype) will challenge with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four superb workouts that include two bullets.  She has the tactical speed to feel out the pace and then run through it.  She is our Bronze Horseshoe runner today.
$2 SHOW.

#6 Magical Bard (Bejarano / Palma) should be in contention with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two robust peaking workouts.  She should be forwardly placed looking to set a comfortable tempo.

#5 Journaliste [ARG] (Leparoux / Sadler) is coming off a layoff looking to make another improvement in her third North American start; she ran well in her native Argentina.  This gal likes to come off the pace and hopefully will have enough ground to do so in this short sprint.  She has had a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a two race progression, and has put in three super speedy works prepping for this race.  She could surprise.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#3 Teddy's Promise  +  #7 Hidinginplainsight  +  #6 Magical Bard  +  #5 Journaliste [ARG].
