Sunday's 6th race (3:35pm PT) from Betfair Hollywood Park is an Optional Claiming affair for 3-year-olds and up traveling seven panels on Cushion Track.
#1 Nextdoorneighbor (5-2) is a disappointing 1-for-17 but Baffert claimed him out of his last for $32k and leading rider Bejarano chose him over morning line favorite Sequoia Warrior (also Baffert). The 5-year-old gelding shows signs of life in a local route June 3 and he enjoys extended sprints. He removes the hood and projects a ground saving tactical trip. Strong 6f bullet for this July 9.
