Thursday at Hollywood Park

We begin one of the most exciting horse racing weekends of the year with a look at a splendid long sprint at Betfair Hollywood Park.  With Kentucky Derby 139 only a few days away the excitement builds.

Betfair Hollywood Park Race 7 {7 1/2 furlongs~3 year old Up~Optional Claiming}
A really tight field of eight will go to the gate in this feature race.  The race comes up a little light on speed which may benefit those that like to be forwardly placed.  All of the racers in this event can be considered equally capable of pulling off the victory.

#8 Keyboard Courage (T. Baze / P. Miller) might have a slight edge with the highest last out speed number at a mile route, a two race progression, and three superb workouts.  This guy has a versatile running style that will benefit him well in this one.  He could be forwardly placed ready to roll.
$2 SHOW.

#4 Bluegrass Reward (Delgado / Glatt) will challenge with the third highest last out speed number at a route and three fine workouts.  He could lead this field through modest fractions and say Adios in the stretch.  This guy has gone this distance seven times for an 86% in the money record.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#3 Mucho Besos (Maldonado / Puype) should contend with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two robust workouts.  As a tracker, he has already notched a win at this unique distance in one start.

#5 Real Conundrum (Talamo / Hendricks) should be in the mix with the fourth highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four strong peaking workouts.  This guy will fly going into the stretch as he moves up in distance from his last out.
