Temecula Creek.

Hollywood: Murray Hcp G2 $150K

Haimish Hy...Looks like there is some speed to set this one up.
Falcon Rock...Another that might be heard from late.
Restless Soul...Showed speed last time and might again today - but could instead stalk and get first jump.

Wager: $5 WP on Haimish Hy.
...$2 exacta box top two.
...$1 tri key Haimish Hy over next three.

If we are interested in both halves of an entry -- in event of a scratch -- it is noted that way [in other words, both halves are named]. If only one-half of the entry is named, then we prefer that half and will move to our next pick listed [rather than the other half of the entry] in event of a scratch.
