California Stakes Saturday

It is June already.  We take a look at a highly competitive race in the Golden State.

Betfair Hollywood Park Race 8 {Californian~G2~1 1/8 mile~3 year old Up~Stakes}
A tremendous crew of seven will battle in this grade two route.  There is enough speed and forwardly placed runners to keep the pace smooth.  Most in here have hit the triple digit speed number with the others very close.  No question this one will be a very good race.

#7 Blueskiesnrainbows (Bejarano / Hollendorfer) looks to improve with a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a two race progression, and three solid workouts.  He has won two races over the Hollywood cushion track in four races.  Expect him to be motoring on the front end.
$2 WIN / $3 SHOW.

#5 Liaison (M. Garcia / Baffert) should be the deserved favorite with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three sturdy workouts.  He is 100% in the money over the Hollywood cushion.  This guy has a versatile running style to fit the pace.
$2 PLACE / $2 SHOW.

#3 Kettle Corn (Espinoza / Sadler) should challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and three hearty workouts.  This guy comes into the race with a 100% in the money record in seven races over the Hollywood cushion.  He poses a genuine threat with his tracker/closer running style.
$2 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#1 Clubhouse Ride (Gomez / Lewis) will contend with the third highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and three superb workouts.  He should be tracking the pace.  This guy should be ready after a brief freshening.

10 CENT Superfecta

#7 Blueskiesnrainbows, #5 Liaison / #7, #5 / #3 Kettle Corn, #1 Cluhouse Ride / #3, #1.
