Only one Hollywood Park maiden sprint today on the synthetic, which is the third race, and it’s difficult to separate any of these horses. The Jay Em Ess Stable entry looks good in this maiden special weight, but it’s 8-to-5 on the morning line.
Also, five of the eight runners lining up are first-time starters and these older debuters are much more difficult to judge than straight 2-year-olds or 3-year-olds.
However, on Memorial Day, Hollywood is running a 10-race card and both the third and final races are for main track maiden sprinters. The 10th looks really interesting, as 14 runners are entered. The group includes layoff horses from Mitchell and Koriner, as well as a recently raced Baffert horse and a Sise debuter.
It should be a good one.
