Saturday's 6th race (3:04pm PT) from Betfair Hollywood Park is the Grade II Bayakoa Handicap for fillies and mares traveling a mile and a sixteenth on Cushion Track. 

#6 Charm the Maker (3-1) has dropped all five turf/dirt start this year with back-to-back stakes placings. She owns two wins and a 2nd from as many synthetic outings including a tally in the $100k Sharp Cat at this course/distance. Garrett Gomez (3 wins Fri.) rides her well and the versatile daughter of Empire Maker appears poised to visit the winners' circle at a hint of a price.

#3 Lady of Fifty (5-1) earned a strong number in a minor stakes win at Santa Anita Nov 1 and she handles all-weather footing (3 wins) as well. Pace player might have to deal with #5 Changethechannel (Tyler Baze) in the early going.   

#8 Inglorious (5-2) makes her first start in more than five months and finally gets away from classy turf specialist Marketing Mix. She clearly does her best work on synthetic (5-for-6) and will try to get involved late under Mike Smith.

The Plays:

$24 to win #6

$10 Quinella 3-6

$3 Trifecta Key 6/3-8 ($6)

Nice effort by Lady of Fifty. She rated kindly and kicked away in the lane.
Probably a good reason for her to be taken back.
Way for the sweetie girl Lady Of Fifty to kick ass. Ran differently than I thought she would though--fighting at the beginning.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
I really like Class Included.
3 Lady Of Fifty, I trust in her connections' faith in her that she's coming into this race doing great, 8 Inglorious--she should still be able to beat the rest, 7 Class Included--if she handles the surface switch, she's faster than most here.
Good betting race. Contenders before scratches are: #7, 5, 3, 6. Paring down the field on paper it comes down to the #3 Lady of Fifty and the #7 Class Included. I do not like the #8 Inglorious who will probably be favored. Both the #3 and #7 have speed and good connections. But the #7 is the classier horse dropping out of G1 company. Bet #7 Class Included to win (5/1). Exactas #7/all. Doubles in and out...all/7...7/all. Good luck!!!
Marteen will outride Gogo in this one. Hollendorfer will have her fit and ready. But, that will be the exacta #3/#6 ...........Lady of Fifty over Charm the Maker.
