BETFAIR HOLLYWOOD PARK Race #1
Friday 11/22 12:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (HOLD EVERYTHING) (9-5) - One of two enterd by Bob baffert and this colt comes off a second-place finish at this level and distance at Santa Anita on Oct. 31. Training nicely since, blinkers go on and $140K son of "Corinthian" can take this if he handles the "poly" surface.
2nd pick: #1 (Candy Boy) (8-5) - Improving colt ran second last out at Santa Anita and defeated "Hold Everything" in the process. He's worked fast since and has already proven that he can handle a synthetic surface in a pair of competitive races at Del Mar.
3rd pick: #5 (Rock Hard City) (12-1) - Longshot flashed some eary speed before tiring badly when debuting in a Santa Anita sprint on Nov. 3. Son of "Rock Hard Ten" stretches out in distance and is moved to a synthetic by trainer Doug O'Neill.
4th pick: #2 (Hoppertunity) (3-1) - The second of the Baffert pair, $300K colt by "Any Given Saturday" has been in steady training here since late August. Dangerous if ready.
