Thursday Opening Day Hollywood Park Recap – April 21
No wire job winners on Cushion Track or turf with stalkers getting stronger as the day wore on.
Rafael Bejarano booted home a pair and Walther Solis saddled two winners on opening day.
On the ticket front I tabbed one Primary (Margarita Shot) winner and three Secondary (Willa B Awesome, Earnednevergiven, Ain’t No Other) winners.

Below are links to my April 22nd free selections…enjoy!
7th race from Hollywood Park – Horse Racing Nation
Friday night’s pick six from Hollywood Park includes five synthetic events and one turf route. American Story (3rd race) is 2-for-2 on synthetic and should make his presence felt throughout in the opening leg. Causeithertz is slowly improving for Humberto Ascanio and the well bred colt should sit a nice trip behind the speed under Bejarano in the grassy 6th.
Degree of Difficulty: Moderate. On a scale of 1 to 10, the Friday pick six from Santa Anita Park rates a 5.
Possible Singles: American Story (3rd race), Causeithertz (6th race)
