Del Mar’s Bing Crosby Season continues on Saturday, December 2 and I have included Hollywood Derby 2023 picks below. The Grade 1 event for 3-year-olds has a $300,000 purse and the nine entrants will be traveling 1 1/8 miles on the turf course. It is the 7th race on Dec. 2.

Hollywood Derby 2023 Picks & Final Time Ratings

Six of the nine entrants in this race exit the Grade 2 Twilight Derby including winner Seal Team, runner-up Silver Knott, and show finisher Webslinger. The other three entrants are shippers including morning line favorite Program Trading, one of two runners from the powerful turf barn of Chad Brown. Check out my top three contenders below and watch my video at the bottom of this post for extensive analysis of the Hollywood Derby.

Webslinger landed in the trifecta in 9 of 11 starts. Program Trading beat him by a head in the Grade 1 Saratoga Derby, and this one finished fast to miss by a half-length in the Twilight Derby (G2) last time. Mark Casse’s consistent gelding can make a run in the lane. If you are considering playing a horse out of the Twilight Derby, this might be your guy.
