Oak Tree @ Hollywood for Thurs. 28 Oct 2010


Most likely will be doing selections for the Breeders Cup for both days in the form of audio emails for each day from Top Turf Today which has the ability to send audios. I will discuss each race and give info on each animal I think has a shot. It will cost about $40 for both days and will have a spot to pay the piper on this website. Please shoot me an email asap to let me know if you are interested. Obviously the number of interested folks will be the key to doing it or not. Good early response and a good long range weather forecast makes it likely I will do selections. I will decide by Friday morning at the latest.


race 1    average clarity

4  Roulette It Roll   exits 2 solid lifetime races at GG and seemingly ships into a weak looking local contingent

5  Michailasheartlite   2 of 5 lifetime starts are good the other 3 aren't......switch to top jock hints we may see a repeat of those 2 good efforts that fit fine here

1  Jenny Jenny Emily   has 3 other speed horses to put away but maybe the speed of the speed


race 2    slightly below average clarity

4  Cash Michael   needed last (placed over head for a tune-up) and has probably been pointed for has thrown 3 Stakes winners out of her other 3 starters

1A  Just Imagine   owns some good early route speed and now adds the blinks to help focus and possible get away from the field

6  Prince Bandini   both of his lifetime starts weren't bad...only needs to show a little more to be in the hunt here


race 3    average clarity

1 Recipient   trained sharply ( especially for this level) at Keeneland before shipping....a good sign of strong intent 1st out at her new track....Proctor has had a solid 2010 at multiple tracks solid route grass run at AP...pedigree says AW is a fit

4  Go Tena Go   difficult to compete 1st out going long and this filly did albeit on the turf.....bred to handle the AW as well

5  Lemon Drop Ridge   most experience running multiple turn races.....freshened up some....might help move this filly forward


race 4    average clarity

4  Tamerin   race lacks speed.....good shot to wire if this mare with physical problems has one more good run left in her

 6  Ashee   just missed both races with Talamo aboard.....seemingly faces somewhat easier today

3  Entabeni   hinting at turning the corner and rebounding in form...last time Sadler moved this filly up in class she ran well....8 Apr 10


race 5   average clarity

5   Square Deal   exits 2 straight solid grass sprints.....last two races on the main (albeit conventional dirt at Crc) were 6 lengths barn and a sharp horse 

1  Spaniard   all 4 races run in 2010 fit well at today's level......only time today's jock rode he won by 3...Baffert is starting to get hot again

4  Earnednevergiven   6 year gelding  has gotten surprisingly sharp on the main track surfaces of late.....can get a nice mid pack position behind what looks like a very lively pace...maybe too lively


race 6    average clarity  

6  Pay For Play   last trip: broke slow, checked a little, and ran wide...actually was more impressive than the fave and winner Movie Duty .....mmmmmm.....and why the drop on money making machine Movie Duty....solid work since last is reassuring

1  Pretty Kenzie   consistent sort may get one of the 1st cracks at the fave turning for home

3  Movie Duty   suspicious drop down but sure seems aided by the fact she looks loose...still can fire if she is declining in form

5  Yasuda   race 2 back a win at this level was also a very solid number


race 7    average clarity

3  A Plus Topper   race lacks speed and yesterday's 20 ft out position on the grass course appeared speed favoring as the early speed flew and still held extremely well considering the suicidal pace

4  Blue Jat Attack  last was decent and race 2 back was stellar....closer would have been top pick if it wasn't for the lack of speed and a possible speed biased sprint turf course

2  Danzig Tribal   last route to sprint was a strong race.....that's the scenario here

1  He's A Dance Star   very impressive win in solid Fpx time in his MSW debut.....barn is good 1st time on the grass


race 8    above average clarity

9  Take A Hard Look   laid of MSW drop down is training like a much superior animal...Baffert has a barn full of young horses and this baby has only 3 starts in 14 months so why not drop 

1,1a   Entry   the 1a maybe a declining horse maybe but all 3 lifetime races are big figs bad trip affairs.....clean trip and he has a shot....the 1 horse also has some ability...not a bad toss in

6  Roaring Rick   new improved barn and training like a much improved animal...long layoff but sure looks ready

8  Warrens Extrabonus   same scenario as above...also showed substantial early pace in his long ago last

4  Big Bad Boo   consistent sort could use his race 4 back
