Furlong Friday in Hollywood

We look toward a pleasant Furlong Friday near the Hollywood hills.

Betfair Hollywood Park Race 6 {7 1/2 furlongs~3 year old Up~CA~Allowance}
A talented group of eight will go to the gate in this California Bred Allowance feature.  There are a few forwardly placed types in here that may get the lead by default.  The vast majority relish a more tracking / closing style of running.  It should make for a very interesting race for this closely matched group.

#3 Apollo Ten (M. Garcia / Machowsky) might have a slight edge with the highest (tie) last out speed number, a three race progression, and two robust workouts.  He has run well at this distance maintaining an 80% in the money record in five starts.  A versatile running style lends to his credibility.
$2 SHOW.

#8 Raised a Secret (Bejarano / Glatt) will challenge with the second highest last out speed number and two very sharp workouts.  He could set up nicely with a urgent pressing attack.  This guy favors the Hollywood Park track holding the second highest speed number over it.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#4 Sizzlin' Joe (Talamo / M. Jones) should contend with the third highest (tie) last out speed number at a route and four superb peaking workouts.  He should track the leaders and run fluidly in the stretch.

#5 Warren's Wild Thing (Orozco / Baltas) could be in the hunt sharing the highest last out speed number and putting in five superior peaking workouts.  Should a solid pace develop, watch this guy launch a strong closing kick.

10 CENT Superfecta

#3 Apollo Ten, #8 Raised a Secret / #3, #8 / #4 Sizzlin' Joe, #5 Warrens Wild Thing / #4, #5.
