With special Veterans Day racing on Monday, Hollywood Park won’t return to racing until Friday afternoon and it’s probably a good idea.
In case you haven’t noticed, the fields at the final Hollywood Park fall meet has been less than sensational. Many days the feature race can’t be run late on the card due to a lack of entries and track officials want to put the largest fields in the Pick Six (and rightly so).
Heck, the biggest fields are usually those $20,000 maiden claimers run as the last race on the card so it be part of the super high five bet (sorry never have bet that one. I have a hard enough time picking first place.)
So Wednesday and Thursday enjoy betting Aqueduct and Churchill Downs as Hollywood Park sticks to its four-day week.
