Hollywood Park, Horse racing

Hollywood Park opinions for Thursday, Dec. 5

Race 6: #11 California Jade

This 2-year-old gelding drops into a maiden claimer for the first time and trainer Bob Hess Jr. is 30% (3-for-10) with that move. Corey Nakatani takes over to ride and should show speed from the gate.


Race 8: #9 Rambling House

This looks like a tough $30,000 maiden claimer for 2-year-olds and we’ll try to get a price with this first-timer by Bertrando. Trainer Dean Pederson has won 27% of his first starts and 40% with debuting maiden claimers. He has teamed up with jockey Martin Pedroza before and Pedroza likes to send them from the gate.
