Race #4 Picks: 4-7-3-1

Race #5 Picks: 1-7-8-3

In this $20,000 claiming race at 6 furlongs, #1 King of Hollywood (7-2) had been running way over his head in stakes races, and then tried the turf.  Four back he won a first level allowance race with a 78 speed figure. He is not facing a strong field today, and we think he will be able to handle this group.  #7 Ridiculous (8-5) has been running with $30,000 claimers at Monmouth and is now moving back down to a level where he has had some success. Trainer Susan Crowell is sending out her first trainee of the meet, but has only won 4% of her starts this year. #6 Bourbon Over Ice (5-2) was competitive with $12,500 claimers and is now moving up a couple levels. Will need to improve to win. #3 Money Song (12-1) moving back to dirt from turf and has run some decent races this year.

Race #6 Picks: 3-4-7-1
