Superfecta Sunday at Hollywood, episode 3

We venture to Hollywood Park for a thrilling route on this Superfecta Sunday.

Betfair Hollywood Park Race 8 {Affirmed~G3~1 1/16 mile~3 year old~Stakes}
A great group of eight will jog over to the gate in this graded stakes race.  Five in here were nominated to the Triple Crown, but all galloped off the trail for various reasons.  The entire field is composed of talented horses.  There is enough speed in here to set up for those coming from off the pace, but if controlled the forwardly placed might have an edge.  It is difficult to gauge.  Let's try to fashion a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#8 Manando (M. Garcia / Baffert) should be the speedy favorite with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three fine peaking workouts.  He holds the highest speed number at this distance and it 100% in the money at it in three attempts.  Will be the one to beat.

#1 Broadway Empire (V. Espinoza / Diodoro) should challenge with a sneaky pressing attack.  He holds the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two stout workouts.  This fella has not been off the board in two career starts.  He is our Bronze Horseshoe runner.
$2 SHOW.

#5 Den's Legacy (Gomez / Baffert) will take advantage of a fierce pace with the third highest speed number at the distance.  He is coming off a longer route which earned him an o.k. speed number coupled with four superb workouts.  This guy will be firing fresh after a brief layoff.

#7 Dice Flavor (Smith / Gallagher) is coming off a failed effort in the UAE Derby in Dubai.  He holds the third highest speed number over synthetic and has put in four furious workouts.  This lad appears ready after a short layoff.  Expect him to track the pace and jump into the fray in the stretch.

10 CENTSuperfecta box ($2.40)

#8 Manando  +  #1 Broadway Empire  +  #5 Den's Legacy  +  #7 Dice Flavor.
