In HRT we bring the latest information about horse racing. Here are our HRT Highlights #38 that will look at racing across the US starting with the Grade three Bob Hope from Del Mar Racetrack, California.

2022 Bob Hope Stakes

Havnameltdown went off as a 4 to 5 favorite with Juan Hernandez and romped home by one and a quarter lengths to give Bob Baffert his 12th victory in the event. Stablemate Newgate finished 2nd and Practical Move was 3rd.

The victory moved Havnameltdown to 30/1 in the Jazzsports Kentucky Derby Future Book with just under 6 months to go.  Cave Rock also from the Baffert barn is the current 12/1 favorite even though Churchill Downs is prohibiting all Baffert-trained horses from participating in the Run for the Roses.

Breeders Cup Champion Forte, trained by Todd Pletcher, is the second choice in the wagering at 15/1.  2 point three million dollar purchase Arabian Knight sits at 20/1 despite only having a maiden win on his resume. Rounding out the top five is Loggins at 35/1 for the Brad Cox barn.
