Hollywood: Thursday scratches


The Hollywood Park autumn meeting opens with an eight-race program this evening at 7:05 p.m., Pacific, but it feels more like a summer evening than the first week of November.

As of 3 p.m., the temperature at tiny Hawthorne airport near the track, which caters to private plans, was 98 degrees. It will be the 70s for the evening, and the weather will be much cooler over the weekend.

The Thursday program has three scratches. In the third race, a $10,000 claimer over 6 1-2 furlongs, Kanan Dume will not start.

In the fifth race, a starter allowance over six furlongs, D'oro Dancer and Marcy's Woods are withdrawn.
