Hollywood Starlet Betting Tips – Executiveprivilege Wraps Up 2012 In Style

Posted by Marco Sussman on 12/6/2012 5:42:17 PM

Sports betting players know that the Grade-1 Hollywood Starlet is usually the final race of the annual program for talented two-year-old fillies, and the stage is set at Hollywood Park for a horse that came up short at the Breeders Cup to avenge that loss with a victory in this main event.

What: Horse Betting
When: Saturday, December 8th, post time TBA
Where: Hollywood Park, Inglewood, CA
Pick: Executiveprivilege

Blonde Fog is the first of two Bob Baffert entries in this race, and this will be his first career start in a stakes race. Still, a lot of horse betting fans have high hopes for Blonde Fog, and we all know that Baffert can train a horse. He has won this race twice, in 1998 and 2001, and his horses will always get a look, no matter what age or gender they are.

On the other hand, Executiveprivilege is Baffert’s other horse in this race and she may be the favorite with five wins in six starts, and she finished second to Beholder in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies event in November. Rafael Bejarano has been in the saddle for all six starts and he won this race in 2007 and 2009, so he knows how to get around Hollywood Park.

Midnight Ballet has made three career starts and won in her first trip to Hollywood Park, taking the non-graded Sharp Cat race on November 11th. This will be a big step up in competition for this two-year-old filly, and this will be a very good test for Midnight Ballet ahead of her three-year-old campaign, which is when most horses of either gender make their money.

Miss Empire has been busy in her two-year-old campaign, making eight starts and winning twice, in the non-graded Cinderella at Hollywood Park in June, and then again in the Pike Place Dancer event in October. She is coming off a disappointing ninth-place run at Hollywood Park in the Grade-3 Miesque Stakes, but she did finish third in the Grade-1 Chandelier Stakes at Santa Anita in September, which is run at 1 1/16 miles and that is the distance of this race. Miss Empire is the first of two horses for trainer Peter Miller in the Hollywood Starlet.

Pure Fun has started once in a graded-stakes race, finishing seventh in the Grade-3 Jessamine at Keeneland, so this will be a barometer of how much this thoroughbred has improved, if at all. Victor Lebron has been in the saddle for three of four races with Pure Fun and two just won an allowance race at Churchill Downs, so they’ll look to take the next step in their development on Saturday.

Renee’s Titan finished second to Midnight Ballet in the Sharp Cat race, and she won her first start in a maiden race at Hollywood Park back in June. In her first start in a Grade-1 event, Renee’s Titan came in sixth in the Del Mar Debutante in September, so this is another chance to figure out if she is worth a look in her three-year-old campaign.

Rhodium is the second of two Peter Miller horses and she was also a starter in the Sharp Cat, coming in fourth. It took her four races to break her maiden, and this was her second straight race with Garrett Gomez, so Miller could be looking to bring him back into the fold for Saturday. It is only natural that horses tend to be more comfortable with jockeys that they spend the most time with, so Miller would be wise to see if Gomez is available at Hollywood Park.

Finally, Scarlet Empire finished third in the Sharp Cat after coming in second to Executiveprivilege at the Chandelier, and this is a solid pick to make as she has never finished lower than third in five starts after breaking her maiden at Del Mar. Scarlet Empire has finished third in each of her two starts at Hollywood Park, but the third time could be a charm for this horse.

How It Will Play Out

This is going to be a fun race to watch as at least half the field has a chance to end up in the winner’s circle. But Baffert will claim his third win in the Hollywood Starle through Executiveprivilege, who will show that the second-place run in the Breeders Cup wasn’t a fluke and she’ll be a threat as a three-year-old in 2013. Go with Executiveprivilege in your online betting picks.
