Hollywood for Saturday 13 Nov 2010


Finally something positive for the Southern California racing scene.  Great news to hear that Santa Anita is implementing a 25% purse increase over last year for their Winter Meeting. Pretty exciting news. More barns and a new racing surface should make for some lucrative wagering opportunities.


race 1    average clarity

3  Miss Seamless   last sprint race run on the AW  3 back would make her the one to beat in this spot

2  Yasuda   consistent these kind 1st after the claim from a high % 1st out after a claim outfit like we have here 

5  Movie Duty   looks loose on the lead here and lookout if we get last night's speed bias


race 2    average clarity

8  Stroppy   solid fig in last for this consistent sort that seemingly gets plenty of heat up front to aid her mid pace style

5  Mary Strong   last 2 efforts are par like for the level and I think we will see another

6  Misinjennuous   both lifetime scores have occurred in route races but all her sprint races fit fine in this spot

1  Really Elegant   probably needed last.....good recent drill last week also hints that we will see more horse today


race 3    average clarity

3   Temp   sure hope Talamo went straight home last and got his rest because he is on top in the 1st 3 races today......Baffert big bucks 1st timer is training like all systems go

4  Victory With Honor   lookout if ready fresh today....both starts last Winter are solid.....had about 8 lengths of trouble in his 2nd out and only got beat by less then 4 lengths

2  Indian Jones  laid up colt is training sharply for a reliable trainer in Walsh...big rider switch...horrid trip in last from low low % rider


race 4    slightly above average clarity

3  Miguel's Mascot   gets limited starts but the drills say his health is intact....can sit up close to pace in a race that should favor front runners

6  Alley Hondro   won despite a bad trip in lone grass ever on the AW in last bodes well for an even better grass effort today

1  Sammartino   plus's: gets 1 post......has some speed in a race without a lot of it....gets good grass speed rider.....consistent......negative:  hanger

4  Valley Cat   keeps steeping up and horse right now


race 5    average clarity

8  Basic Strategy   basic strategy: blinkers back on....P Val back on.....only 5 think they want the lead?.....wire to wire attempt here

1  Mi Marino   sharp recent drill and cuts back 1/2 furlong....believe we see a reboud to his race 2 back which fits here

5  Marcoman   another with a sharp recent drill and it was at today's distance.....should be motoring late with a decent late running jockey aboard

3  Pure Distinction   1st timer is training as if dangerous in his lifetime debut


race 6    average clarity

1  Blue Jay Attack   plenty of heat up front can sets things up nicely from this strong late running sprint grass fig ever on T T Today was lone race at today's 5F distance

7  El Scorpio   owns brilliant early speed but also appears as if he can rate

6  Sea Of Pleasure   also has ability to cut out big fractions...needs to avoid a  duel

2  Smokey Lonesome   long layoff but training like he might be ready to roll from far back


race 7    average clarity

6  Schuylkill Punch   solid debut in a Maiden 50K affair pressing then stalking a decent pace a bit that Mulhall yanks him out of claiming....expecting an even fitter animal today

1  Switzers The Man   2 solid 2nd's in 2 lifetime races....Flores has been getting the job done of late 

10  Arousal   strong MSW debut run 4 weeks ago and 3 nice reassuring works since....well bred animal in the right hands

4  Coil   exits a strange pace-less 24 flat for the quarter MSW debut trainer takes over...tough to gage debut but trains like a good thing 


race 8    slightly below average clarity

3  Unusual Suspect   as much early speed in this Graded marathon as I've seen in a long time so I'm turning to this late running horse coming off a strong fig effort on the AW.....runs all day on the turf or main track

5  Where's The Remote   sure likes the sod.....can lay off of the pace which seems like a good thing here....handled 1 1/4 miles but can he get the extra 1/4 ? 

2  Treat Gently   filly is sharp and has run well on firm turf so California sod seems like a good fit

8  Big Shot Syd   dangerous sort steps way up off a most impressive press of a strong pace easy win....almost beat Oil Man last year when he was a good animal


race 9    average clarity

6  Teenage Dancer   all 4 S Cal AW races fit well versus this group...Gaines has been hot

11  Stormy Linda   another whose races (all 4 of them) fit fine in this spot.....Cavara just claimed and he is rather dangerous 1st time off of the claim

5  Nikki's Curfew   solid return to the race wars in last......repeat of that run fits so any move forward and he will be especially tough

9  Indiara   horse has health issues and responds best with 2 or 3 months between races and gets it

12  Forest Beauty   very dangerous small barn ran 2nd with John aboard last night with a mc 1ster
