Hollywood Park, Horse racing

Hollywood Park picks for Sunday, November 17

FIRST RACE: 1. Two Term Leader, 2. Tahoe Flash, 3. Kafister. LONG SHOT: He’s Not Bluffin.

Just a hunch here. Jockey Vandyke is making his first career start here on TWO TERM LEADER for trainer Tom Proctor and Glen Hill Farm. My thought is this horse is going to to be gunned to the lead for a wire-to-wire win. We’ll see.


SECOND RACE: 1. As Good as Gold, 2. Tama County, 3. Blue Collar Boy. LONG SHOT: Bobby Flay.


THIRD RACE: 1. Ciao Bella Luna, 2. Qiaona, 3. Curvy Cat. LONG SHOT: Sister Kate.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Super Reagan, 2. Unusual Fleet, 3. Ron’s Boy. LONG SHOT: This Cat’s Awesome.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Northern Iowa, 2. Holy Candy, 3. Curly Top. LONG SHOT: Admission.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Yana, 2. Mia Luccia, 3. Reflective Glory. LONG SHOT: Casey’s Clem.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Somethings Unusual (best bet), 2. Uncle Dick, 3. Rangi. LONG SHOT: Empty Headed.

Jockey Joe Talamo could have ridden a couple of horses in here, but decides to stick with this 5-year-old SOMETHINGS UNUSUAL. The gelding finished second down the hill at Santa Anita and now stretches out. He has won 2-of-3 tries on this turf course and once at today’s distance. He could be rounding back into form for trainer Don Warren.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Betty Bing Bing, 2. Global Hottie, 3. Our Glitter Ball. LONG SHOT: Euroclydon.


NINTH RACE: 1. Live the Forth, 2. Splemdiferious Moon, 3. Warren’s Judy. LONG SHOT: Totaly Blonde.
