Like Hollywood Left? You’re Right!

Backing eight year olds is generally not our style until we’re back into a corner--or the rail. But every time you seem to wind up Hollywood Left (7-2) he shows up, usually right on time.

A four time winner at Gulfstream, he’s won eight turf sprints in his short career and runs earns top figures with alarming consistency.

Owning speed and pole position, there’s no good reason to think who won’t run his race yet again in his third start following a layup, a worthy 31 percent profitable occurrence for Jason Servis, who taps the aggressive Jose Lezcano.

Taking Hollywood Left to win at 5-2 or greater and keying him first and second in exactas with the Kirk Zaidie (dah) trained Sir Edgar (4-1) and Ashtonofun (8-1) who should be set for best in his third off the layoff.

Music to My Stash

Last time Musical Rain (8-1) was seen she was rallying too late in The Very One at 11 furlongs. Normally, we’re not a fan of stretching out late runners but this looks like the perfect spot and she comes up to the Orchid the right way.

While the pace figures to be slow, it also figures to be contested, Dale Romans’ filly has some tactical gas and should work out a pocket trip behind the contested pace. The odds should be fair.

Taking Musical Rain to win at 4-1 or greater and keying her first and second in trifectas with Queen Martha (10-1), Endless Expanse (7-2) and Tarrip (4-1).

Running Totals: (830) 264-171-114 Total Dollar Return: $1,849.10 [win selections only] {Saturday results not included}

Hilda’s One Hot Filly

Today’s Gulfstream feature, the Grade 2 Inside Information, highlights some very talented older sprinting fillies and mares going 7 furlongs. The problem for us is, hard as I might, it’s extremely difficult getting passed Hilda’s Passion (9-5).

She’s blossomed at 4 and her recent score in the G3 Herecomesthebride at 6.5 furlongs was absolutely first rate. Her pace and final figures are dominant on the Equiform scale and what’s worse is that she appears loose on the lead on the mini-stretchout. We just can’t go passed her.

Taking Hilda’s Passion to win, no price restrictions, and keying her in exotic multiples with Milwaukee Appeal (6-1), Ms Vanessa (6-1) and Beautician (4-1).
