Hollywood for Saturday 12 June 2010


Handicappers Corner

Recommended pick 4 part wheel

7th race     1,3,4,5,6 with 1,4,5,6,10 with 7 with 2, 11   50 plays


race 1    average clarity

7  Fire Break  this may be the softest spot this 5 year old gelding has ever seem....appreciates the distance and the Hol grass course

4  Y'vett's Pride  the key to this horse appears to be firm turf and we know it never rains in California......positive rider switch since his last grass race

1  Devil On The Roof   two good efforts since the Cerin barn snatched....only needs to move forward a little to content for the top prize


race 2    average clarity

1,1a  ENTRY   believe both of Baffert's horses are meant and ready

6  Lone Justice   long layoff but working exceptionally well for his new trainer.....only lifetime sprint was his MSW debut and he broke slow and ran wide and only got beat by 5

4  Rauschenberg   2 solid lifetime races run 1/2 year apart.....gets to run back in 4 weeks this time so we may see this gelding at his best

2  Idyllic   absolutely nowhere to be found in his debut but is training up a storm....Miller is much more dangerous with 2nd time starters especially 3 year olds or older


race 3    slightly below average clarity

1,1a  ENTRY   both 1 and 1a look as if they fit in this spot

3  Glendive   strong late kick in his 1 mile grass races.......earned a solid fig in last and had to close into a soft pace....fits solidly if can handle the extra furlong

4  Hard Way Ten  top jock should be able to capture a nice chase position with this so far (3 lifetime starts) consistent filly


race 4    average clarity

5  Free Flying Soul   5 year old mare looks better than ever now that she has learned to rate Smith more options with her

2  Alpha Kitten  consistent closer has been impressive in all 5 lifetime sprints....very strong in late stretch

1  Sweet August Moon   last looks like the turf tightener to firm up and be all set in her 2nd run after the layoff...good history 2nd runs after breaks in the action


race 5    average clarity

4  Sea Rascal    repeat his  last will make him tough here....chased a solid pace and went on by late....drops a small notch back to where they claimed him...solid reassuring 5/8 drill since

6  Self Insured   very consistent efforts when placed in one turn races....just claimed and drops a notch...also fits solidly if he runs his race

2  Hiho Geronimo   improving horse also just claimed and the new barn retains red hot Martin Garcia who knows this claimer well

7  Rummysecret War  always seems to fire when he he placed in a claiming affair....he's up for sale today


race 6    slightly below average clarity

3  L'enchanteresse   hidden improvement in his latest when he pressed the pace on a dull the 1/2 furlong less...been a little flat late at 7F

9  Indiara   finally is going to run at the level where her fairly consistent figures fit........listed purchase price was only 25K so it's a bit surprising she hasn't run at this level before

7  Very Vintage   improving with every start.....extra 1/2 F may help her good closing style 

1  Diva Gone Wild   it's taken 10 weeks to get this claimed maiden back in a race but Mike Smith has won his last 2 of 3 mounts for Spawr...that hints at her being ready and maybe improved


race 7    average clarity

1  Champ Pegasus   should be able to sit in a good position up close to the lead in a race seemingly set for front runners

4  Yodelen Dan   sharp recent drill and a switch to Bejarano strongly hint a rebound for this gelding who likes today's 1 1/4 mile distance

6  Rumba Along   barn has got this horse on the improve and the 5 year old appears to appreciate the mini-marathon distance


race 8    average clarity

5  Money Lover   impressed with his last where he was pressed setting a strong route pace and only got beat by 1 length...turn back to a sprint and a big 4F bullet...should be prominent thru-out

6  Angi's Wild Cat   solid win to break her MSW at GG....both 2nd and 3rd in her winning race came back to win their next out....trainer is a win machine

2  Downhill Diva   better and better with every start and few reasons not to believe the learning trend won't continue

4  Missdealornodeal   solid layoff win to break her MSW and way better works since.....Gaines has a superior history repeating with horses that just broke their maiden


race 9    above average clarity

7  Rail Trip   what a beautiful way of going especially with top gun on his back.... should get a nice relaxed position behind the leader(s)

1  Aitcho  should be able to get a nice ground saving mid pack position and make his move from there

6  Sangaree   back to the red hot team of Baffert/M Garcia...this horse just keeps becoming a more formidable animal one small step at a in the morning 

4  Spurrier   works are powerful and the Baffert charge runs at his best fresh off of's scenario


race 10    average clarity

2  Western Mood   1st timer for Hollendorfer is training like he is something special....most impressive he has worked 5F today's distance 3 straight times..has built a solid foundation to go along with some bullet speed drills

11 Lana's Smile   exits a fast heat and ran 2nd despite not the best of journey's....jock selects horse over the GG invader he was also named to ride

6  American Wildcat   solid paced duel and almost won his MSW debut at GG...barn thinks enough of the effort to ship on down to the big time circuit  

9  Doughnut Boy  exits a fast heat run in his MSW debut....checked hard on the run-up or may have competed for the top prize

7  Swiss Tart   massive improvement in 2nd lifetime start...needs the trend to continue
