Hollywood Park, Horse racing

Hollywood Park picks for Friday, November 8

FIRST RACE: 1. Autumn View, 2. Air of Royalty, 3. Teacher Teacher. LONG SHOT: Swiss Heart.


SECOND RACE: 1. Dunmore East, 2. Private Bounty, 3. Guidopanzini. LONG SHOT: Toss the Dice.


THIRD RACE: 1. Joyce and Me, 2. Toomanytomatoes, 3. There Is No Limit. LONG SHOT: Always a Chance.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Charisma Code, 2. Johns Journey, 3. Oneandonlyloveman. LONG SHOT: Prince of Paris.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Sultry Season, 2. Only Josie Knows, 3. Joeandbetty’sbaby. LONG SHOT: Sallyana.

Our Eyes: It looks like trainer Mike Pender has been pointing for the beginning of this final meet in Inglewood as he has five horses entered the first two days. This 3-year-old filly was claimed out of a runner-up effort at Santa Anita and moved up in class. Pender is 23 percent first off the claim and this filly has her only synthetic win over this surface.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Brown Boss, 2. Christopher Street, 3. Volkonsky. LONG SHOT: China Prince.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Oliver’s Tale, 2. Imperial Fortune, 3. Justa Runner. LONG SHOT: Wild Media.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Sushi Empire (best bet), 2. Costamar, 3. Kazam. LONG SHOT: Lethal Story.

Trainer Eoin Harty gets this 2-year-old filly SUSHI EMPIRE to stretch out around two turns after two sprint efforts, one down the hill at Santa Anita. This daughter of Empire Maker should relish the extra distance in a very tough maiden grass race. Jockey Corey Nakatani, who riding the turf as well as anyone in Southern California, retains the mount.

Thursday’s top choice winners: 2 (Eddies Curl $3.60, fourth race; Miss Well Molded $5.20, seventh)

Thursday’s second choice winners: 1 (Katey Pie $6.80, eighth)

Thursday’s third choice winners: 1 (Cyclometer $5.60, second)

Thursday’s long shot winners: 2 (Full Consent $9.40, first; Graeme Crackerjack $10.80, sixth)
