BETFAIR HOLLYWOOD PARK Race #2
Thursday 06/13 01:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (SPORTS REPORT) (4-1) - Recent maiden winner did so by rallying into a soft pace going 6 furlongs May 18th for a $28K tag. Lightly raced, he has room for upside and is nicely spotted by trainer Pete Miller in his first facing winners. 3-year-old has more early speed than most in this field full of "no speed" types.
2nd pick: #3 (Our Boy Benjamin) (5-2) - Logical contender, he's finished close up in his last pair and last out rallied to finish 3rd of 10, beaten just over a length May 23rd. Claimed thant day for $16K by Bob Troeger, he brings him back three weeks later at the purchase price and with Bejarano aloft.
3rd pick: #6 (Jay's Firetruck) (3-1) - Much improved of late, gelding has finished second in two straight here at this level and last out finished in front of "Benjamin." Race was his first off a two month freshening and he's a threat at a short price.
4th pick: #2 (Sanibel Sid) (3-1) - He has no early speed at all, and although he had a good pace set up May 23rd he could not get past either "Benjamin" or "Jay" during the stretch run. A minor award may be his ceiling.
