Charlie and Chris, the nice Unusual Heat colt I've been following since the beginning of the year, will be the likely favorite in the 6th race at Hollywood Park today. Tyler Baze has the mount for trainer Howard Zucker in the maiden claiming race for California-breds three and up.
In his last race, a 6-1/2 furlong overnight stakes at Hollywood Park on Apr. 25, Charlie and Chris pressed the pace before tiring to finish 7th. Previously, he ran two seconds and a third at Santa Anita, and in his last race Charlie and Chris appeared to rate well for Baze. If he reproduces that style, he may just take this one!
