Rail Trip will attempt to defend his title in todays Grade I Hollywood Gold Cup at Hollywood Park. His trainer Ron Ellis thinks he is bringing a fresher, stronger, more mature horse to the Gold Cup this year. Compari and Tres Borrachos will likely show the way early in this race. Compari has never racedin graded company beyond a mile and did win the G2 Arcadia Handicap on the grass in April. Craig Dollase will send out Awesome Gem, a hard-trying 7-year-old gelding who always knocks on the door in Grade 1s but never can quite finish first. The Bob Baffert-trained Richards Kid will is one of the favorites in the field of seven and won last summers $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar. Cigar Man and Tap it Light round out the field.
