Vanity Invitational Handicap Betting – The Field Is Wide Open At This Prestigious Race

Some of the best older distaffers on the West Coast will aim for the biggest portion of the $250,000 purse in the Grade 1 Vanity Invitational Handicap Saturday at Hollywood Park and people betting horses online have some serious online casino options to consider.

Over the years it has been run at distances from a mile to a mile and a quarter and this year the race will be run at 9 furlongs.

Through decades of fine racing, this fixture has been won by names like Silver Spoon, Gamely, Princess Rooney, Bayakoa, Azeri and for the last three years, the great Zenyatta.

Last year Zenyatta had everything against her as St. Trinians got first run on her but Zenyatta reeled her in posting a 103 Beyer.

This year St. Trinians is coming to the race much better. Last season she was coming off an extended layoff yet still ran huge. Now she comes to the race after a solid prep over the strip as she finished first in the Milady Handicap going away last month.

She has been expertly managed by Mike Mitchell and figures to be a handful right back.

American Story tried to steal the aforementioned Milady but it was her first graded effort and she was just not up to the task. Got to expect her to be out winging once again.

Win, lose or draw it will be a big day for Jerry Hollendorfer, who not only turns 65 on Saturday, but saddles over $2.6 million earner Blind Luck.

Fresh from a popular win in a Grade 2 at Churchill, Luck was flattered when the horse that beat her in March flattered her by cashing last Saturday in a Grade 3 at Delaware.

The concern about Blind Luck is she has limited speed and things have to break just right.

Miss Match will be trying to prove her 45-1 win in her Anita finale was no fluke. She threw in a clinker in her next at Oaklawn and will need a rebound race.

She’s Cheeky gave sports betting online backers a great thrill in the Milady at 74-1 but had nothing left when the real racing began.

Switch has never been out of the exacta at Hollypark. She has tactical speed and could sit in the 2-hole early behind American Story.

Look for the race to unfold this way. American Story will cut out the pace with Switch and She’s Cheeky in pursuit. The splits figures to be in the :48 and change and 1:12 and big change area.

Miss Match, Blind Luck and St. Trinians will be saving round and trying to keep an eye on the other rival.

At the top of the lane American Story will start to feel the heat and start to wilt.

The trailers will start to make their moves as Switch inherits the lead into the final furlong. In the end, the way she pushed the pace early will take its toll and Blind Luck will give Hollendorfer the best birthday present he could ever imagine.

Key Blind Luck on top with Switch and use St. Trinians as a saver.

Good luck.
