Hollywood Park: Parade of longshots yields $111,858 pick-six carryover for Thursday card


INGLEWOOD, Calif. – A string of longshot winners Sunday, and a loss by a heavy favorite, has led to a pick-six carryover of $111,858 for Thursday’s eight-race program at Betfair Hollywood Park.

Thursday’s program begins at 1 p.m. The pick-six races are the third through eighth, with the first leg of the pick six due off at approximately 2 p.m. Pacific.

Sunday, three consecutive winners in the fifth through seventh races paid $18, $18.40, and $44.60 before 4-5 Mile High Magic finished second to Don Tito ($14.80) in the eighth race.

Thursday, there are not a lot of horses for bettors to analyze. The pick-six races have fields of seven, eight, three consecutive fields of seven, and nine horses in the last race.

In the fourth race, Et Tu Walker, scratched from Sunday’s sixth race, will start as the favorite in a maiden claimer over six furlongs.

Trainer John Sadler, who had three winners Sunday, has runners in the fifth and sixth races.

In the fifth race, an allowance race over a mile on turf, he starts Antidote, who was third in a similar race June 17. In the sixth race, Sadler runs Majestic Moment, who will need to improve from a fifth on June 15 to beat two horses trained by Paddy Gallagher – Anabaa Premium and Money Talker – in a maiden race over 1 1/16 miles.

The last race is for 2-year-old maidens over six furlongs. Trainer Neil Drysdale has two first-time starters – Dr. Spin, by Bernstein, and Shining Copper, by Aragorn. Trainers Peter Miller and Kory Owens, who have strong records with first-time starters, will be represented by Londinium and Anytime.

these were not longshots - just really poor morning lines...that seems to be the case a lot lately, all over the country- it's ok, though, because some of us like and profit from very poor m/l handicappers...

I might be mistaken, but I think Jon White is the Morning Line Odds Maker for Hollywood Park. You are right though, morning lines are not what they used to be?
