Wednesday's 7th race (4:09pm PT) from Betfair Hollywood Park is the Grade 2 Swaps Stakes for 3-year-olds traveling nine furlongs on Cushion Track.
#7 Called To Serve (5-1) improved smartly in his last pair (gelded). He followed up a sharp Santa Anita graduation run with a 1/2 length local win in the entry level ranks and might be this good for Eurton. Gomez hops aboard the outside tactical threat.
#6 Nonios (3-1) sat the right tactical trip in the local prep for this (G3 Affirmed). He is 3-for-4 lifetime and should continue to develop for Hollendorfer.
#2 Blueskiesnrainbows (4-1) might get brave if able to shake loose early in a race that came up light on pace. The Baffert runner gave I'll Have Another and Creative Cause a scare as the controlling speed under today's pilot Talamo in the SA Derby. He dons the hood and captured his lone local outing last December.
#5 Liaison (5-2) and #1 Rousing Sermon (4-1) both had productive juvenile seasons but have gone a combined 0-for-9 this year. The former has more tactical speed and is probably a bigger threat but won't offer much value.
$15 to win #7
$10 Quinella 6-7
$5 Quinella 2-7
