Hollywood Park, Horse racing

Updated Hollywood Park picks for Saturday, Nov. 30

The track announced late Friday, that Saturday’s stakes races would remain on the turf and the others would be off the turf so handicap accordingly.


FIRST RACE: 1. Warren’s Tyler S., 2. Designer, 3. Tribe. LONG SHOT: Congregationalist.


SECOND RACE: 1. Royal Banker, 2. Global View, 3. Pablo Del Monte. LONG SHOT: Aotearoa.


THIRD RACE: 1. Money Cannon, 2. Derringer, 3. Too Fast to Pass. LONG SHOT: Kafister.

Pure and simple here as when trainer Adam Kitchingman has a live one he goes to jockey Edwin Maldonado. The duo is 10-for-20 in its last 20 races at Hollywood Park the last two years. Kitchingman claimed MONEY CANNON out of a winning race at this level and he returns to face straight 3-year-olds after facing older at Turf Paradise last time. DERRINGER comes out of a key race where three horses have come back to win.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Love In The Desert, 2. Clenor, 3. Savings Account. LONG SHOT: Full Ransom.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Scamalot, 2. This Cat’s Awesome, 3. Lucky Jack. LONG SHOT: Lucky J Lane.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Shoer Hugh, 2. Soul Candy, 3. Brown Boss. LONG SHOT: Apollo Ten.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Oh Billy Billy, 2. Pray Hard, 3. Toosmartbyhalf. LONG SHOT: Prince of Paris.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. D’Obession, 2. He’s a Dance Star, 3. Insideondoutside. LONG SHOT: Brokered.


NINTH RACE: 1. Majestic Moment, 2. Gilligan, 3. Cook Inlet. LONG SHOT: Russel’s Run.

Trainer Victor Garcia is 6-for-10 (60%) first off the claim and he has enough confidence here with this $8,000 purchase MAJESTIC MOMENT to move him up one level. This 4-year-old gelding broke his maiden over this surface last year against tougher plus there is a good work showing since the claim.


TENTH RACE: 1. Magic Daddy (best bet), 2. Mary Helen’s Storm, 3. America Rising. LONG SHOT: Copote’s Royalty.

Trainer Bob Baffert might be giving one away here as MAGIC DADDY, a 3-year-old colt, has shown speed against straight maidens but he drops him all the way down to the bottom in a $20,000 maiden claimer. Look for a wire-to-wire effort here at short odds under jockey Martin Garcia.
