Racing at Hollywood Park with Marc Doche: Three Drunks in Diver

Returning to his home track of the lakes and flowers off a third-place effort in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (Grade I) at Churchill Downs a month ago, Tres Borrachos is the 5-to-2 morning line favorite and 119-lb. high weight against six other older males in today’s $100,000 Native Diver Handicap (Grade III) going a mile and an eighth on Hollywood Park’s main track.
 
The son of Ecton Park qualified for the Breeders’ Cup by breaking a long losing streak while winning the San Diego Handicap (Grade II) this summer at Del Mar and the result in Kentucky was a culmination of the six-year-old gelding’s form reversal in 2011 since moving to the barn of Marty Jones. Of his four career wins, three have come in Inglewood, including the Swaps Stakes (Grade II) as a three-year-old in 2008.
