Horse Racing/No claiming price


Hollywood Park June 20th Race 6

Race is carded as Open $40k, not Optional Clm.

Two entries show no claiming price in the form, Maquina and Romeo Royale. Any ideas?

Actually, this is an easy question.  You didn't say where you got the information above, but the track program shows that Maquina is an overnight scratch and Romeo Royale has been entered not to be claimed under CHRB Rule 1634.  That rule applies to horses returning from a layoff and it's mentioned at the bottom of the page in the program.

Good luck!

I can answer questions about handicapping and betting horse races. I can answer questions about speed figures and morning workouts of race horses on the southern California workout circuit (Santa Anita, Hollywood Park, and Del Mar racetracks).


I started as a casual race fan in 1978, became a serious fan in the 1980's, worked as a pari-mutuel clerk in the mid-1980's, was a serious bettor (earning hundreds of thousands of dollars in the late 1980's and early 1990's), sold shares in race horse syndicates in 1992-93 as a part of the Team Valor stable, was the customer service director for the Handicapper's Report publication from 1993-1997, became the owner and publisher of Handicapper's Report from 1997-2001, continue to work as a writer and consultant to Handicapper's Report to this day.
