$1 Players Pick Five @ Betfair Hollywood Park - Cost of Play $24
Will take a stab at the pick 5 today, looks like it could be a chalk day with many heavy favorites and small fields so i will play this wager for $1 instead of the 50cent minimum. good luck!
Race 1: (2,3) 2-Halfapondarosa - 3- Kiss My Swiss
#2 Halfapondarosa returns to the synthetics after a poor turf start. She appears to be the most accomplished runner on todays surface and distance. Also posting some of the highest speed figures in the field. ML ODDS: 2-1
#3 Kiss My Swiss's prior starts have all been turf races and she hasn't performed well. But all of her wins were earned at BHP on the main track, she is the horse for course play and has the early speed to make the lead. ML ODDS: 6-1
Race 2: (3,7) 3-You'llalwaysbemine - 7-Living Our Dream
#3 You'llalwaysbemine looks like a stand out based on the class drop but it does look suscpicious and makes her somewhat vulnerable. ML ODDS: 5/2
#7 Living Our Dream on outside post looks like she will get a favorable trip stalking the speed and could finish the job late. ML ODDS: 3-1
Race 3: (3) 3-Miner's Daughter
#3 Miner's Daughter gets a second chance in this maiden special weight event vs others who have had their chances and flopped as favorites, oh, she also is trained by hot trainer Bob Baffert.
Race 4: (3,5,6) 3-Mikey T - 5-Fable Heaven - 6-War Face
#3 Mikey T gets his first try on the lawn and looks like the strongest of the first timers.
ML ODDS: 5/2
#5 Fable Heaven has finished fourth all three starts but benefits from two prior grass starts and has the highest figures of the bunch
ML ODDS: 4-1
#6 War Face had a bad trip last start and broke slowly will get a price for the second try on the turf.
ML ODDS: 8-1
Race 5: (2,3) 2 - Mayakoba Mesa - 3 - Sparkling Style
#3 Sparkling Style is coming off a dominating win at todays distance in a minor stakes with a BSF of 88 she will be a heavy favorite.
ML ODDS: 2-1
#2 Mayakoba Mesa is in good form for 2012 posting two back to back wins and has won over the main track at hollywood and could take down the heavy favorite.
ML ODDS: 3-1
