Hollywood for Saturday 19 June 2010


Handicappers Corner

You know I love Cal racing but I sure miss the beauty of Arlington Park. It is one gorgeous facility even when it's pouring rain sideways! 7 out of 9 top choice winners doesn't hurt any either!


Recommended pick 3 part wheels start in race 7

2,4,6,7 with 1,6,8 with 2,9,10,11

2,4,6,7 with 6 with 3,4,5,7,8 

68 bets total





race 1   average clarity

4  Victorian Dancer   one year ant 2 weeks off but smartly cuts claiming price in up to snuff to be ready fresh

3  Big Wig   won the last 3 of 4 and the grass....believe there is another good race in him but I am slightly concerned about his history of flattening out past 1 mile

5  Concerto's Thunder   the ultimate hanger in the stretch fits well fig wise but Rosario better be all over him late to get his nose in front


race 2    average clarity

7  Skypirate   smartly steps up after a solid mdn25K debut...wasn't all that cranked up for the race so it seems logical to expect more today

1  Girlwithegoldhoof   on the improve with every start....very tough if the trend continues with a 7 week break since her last

4  Melon Up   maiden debut fits...last race doesn't...good drills suggest she'll rebound to her debut effort


race 3    average clarity

2  Royal F J  this gelding is as good as a maiden can be without graduating...seems to be an overdo move to try the blinkers on this talented grass horse who win today or I doubt I'll place him on top again no what how powerfully he runs

1  A Moment In Time   impressive AW debut run and then tossed a clunker......1st grass today....sired by a hot new grass sire.....jockey is riding well for the trainer this meet

3  Bodark   exits a very key maiden grass race in his MSW debut and he only got beat by 5.....barn is better with 2nd timers


race 4    average clarity

2  So Hottie   just claimed by a very high % 1st after the claim trainer......bullet drill and back to the same level.......can be very tough here if the new outfit improves her

6  Jinx   Sadler seems to be letting this mare run into shape so expecting more 3rd out after the layoff

3  Hostile Reaction   hard trying sort needs to keep from flattening out late...winless apprentice seems to be finally improving some


race 5    average clarity

6  Merrymeonemoretime    improved with every start on the AW....laid up for 2 months but the very solid work tab suggests this filly has come back better than ever....decent turf pedigree

1  Ms Cecile   1ster has a nice tightly spaced work tab and the pedigree to run on the lawn....Sadler has won a 1/4 of his last 16 debuting turf runners...pretty impressive and significant

7  Platinum Mine   solid debut on the grass and few reasons not to believe she will move forward

9  Wooden Star   another 1st timer that looks ready to roll and that has solid breeding to handle the sod....does have to overcome the outer-most post which is not a good place to be with a 1st timer usually


race 6    average clarity

8  Meili   aggressively placed to recent drills...can repeat under the tutelage of a more than capable small barn

5  Victory Dash   very consistent sort....high degree of probability she will fire her best 2nd out after the layoff

6  Dish The Dirt  most of career figs fit turf or AW.....she is slipping some but facing easier can only help

4  Sugar Spike   28 to 1 3rd (in a 7 horse field) off of the long layoff hints that this filly benefited from that race and will move in the right direction today


race 7    average clarity

6  Entabeni   great chance to get over in a nice stalking of mid pack position.....filly has moved forward with every grass more and a good trip and she wins this

7  Bran Jammas   two straight solid figs produced by this Cal bred...her good stretch run in last suggests she can fire a 3rd straight strong effort

4  El Nadia  ironically at AP yesterday I sat with one of the owners of this horse who is one of the brighter nicer guys you'll find around the Chicago racing scene....he is a local Chicago racetrack legend....his horse isn't too shabby either...needs to break that hanging tendency

2  My Maloof Rocker   hard trying sort only needs to move forward a length or two...2nd out after the claim....she may


race 8    slightly above average clarity

6  Alphie's Bet   1 1/2 versus older on the grass was either a ridiculous placement for this quality colt orjust a little endurance work....I believe he was as good as any 3 year in California outside of Lookin At Lucky

1  Skipshot  only 2 route races fit well at today's Grade 3 level....nice sprint prep for today bodes well for his chances at be fit and ready

8  Ranger Heartley   looks loose and............he.......may...........go........all........the..........way...hey it's almost football season!

2  Golden Itiz   big 11 length win but had a slow pace and was we find out what Ellis has


race 9    slightly below average clarity

2  Courtside Action   not quite sure this one is the surest to win but he sure looks the most likely to hit the board somewhere...very few negatives

11  Fortunate Appeal

9  Revitalization

10  Ministerfrommiami

3  Honour Family
