Friday's 8th race (4:07pm PT) from Betfair Hollywood Park is a $30,000 Maiden Claiming event for 2-year-old fillies dashing six furlongs on Cushion Track.
#8 Strange Luck (4-1) took some action (5-1) in her 5.5f Santa Anita bow but never got seriously involved (winner romped) over that speed conducive oval. The above average $97k purchase trained here during the month of August, Garcia strings along, and she could be much better than her debut suggests. She sports a solid Santa Anita worktab for this engagement and I am looking for an improved effort at a hint of a price.

#12 Katy's Star (3-1) landed the rail in both starts and flashed improved early foot last time. Today's outer draw could make all the difference and she looms a pace factor at the very least.
#9 Sassy Brunette (5-1) drops out of a MSW event, attracts Talamo, and Art Sherman shows a profit with second time starters.
#10 Deft Touch (5-1) drew the intimidating rail in her downhill turf sprint bow across town. O'Neill excels with this type of dropper.
$15 to win #8
$7 Quinella 8-12
$2 Exacta 8-12/9-10 ($8)
