Hollywood for Sunday 15 May 2011


Pick 6 carry-over for today. (Only 4 of 6 winners on a Saturday is extremely rare.) Difficult pick 6 sequnce once again today.


A date to remember. So many of you have asked when I will give bonus selections at Arlington again. Well I am doing a race show once again for a fund raiser at  AP on Friday June 17th. I will post my picks along with those for Hollywood that day. Last year I got quite lucky and had (I believe) 9 of 11 top pick winners. Check the archives for June of last year to see how I fared.


race 1    below average clarity

1  Dave's Revenge   sure like that Bejarano sticks around to ride this mare who acted up very badly at the gate in last and then was greatly compromised by a bad trip

2  Rainbow's Luck   Miller hasn't been afraid to drop to score lately so I imagine this mare is still in relatively decent health/form

4  Church Avenue   Carava is dangerous 1st out after a claim and sprint to route and we have a very positive rider switch


race 2    average clarity

7  Fire Glow   exits a very heat  in last which was run at GG.....the horse he ran 2nd to came back to win stepping up in claiming price....very high win % for GG trainer

4  Eternally Fast   over a year off but drops from the sky and owns good early speed....1 for 1 at Hollywood and it was a lifetime best effort

8  Flashmans Papers   history points to this horse appreciating short rest and that's what we have today

5  Ribald   another who should respond to short rest based apon his past running lines


race 3    slightly below average clarity

5  Bench Points   undefeated in 4 lifetime sprints and is the lone closer in the race....seems like the perfect spot

2  Flightofalifetime   exits an easy paced wire job where I imagine he exerted himself little which leads me to think he feels really good for support this

4  Ain't No Other   hard to argue with 5 straight sprint wins in a row on 3 different surfaces


race 4    average clarity

3  Lucky Timing   last hides her ability....checked back early and then chased sizzling fractions versus a solid key 8 weeks but conditioning up to snuff.....good grass pedigree

1  Pleasing Sunrise   solid layoff run and good works since for the red hot Mike Puype.....should be turf tightened up and ready to move forward 2nd out on the sod

6  Miss Georgie Girl     decent layoff run on the grass in latest.....Walsh is usually even better 2nd out after the layoff...not too shabby 2nd out on the grass either 


race 5    average clarity

10  Winter Blossom   horrendous trip in maiden debut last.....very positive rider switch......needs to break better from the outer-most post which she failed to do in her debut

4  Running Isabelle   good speed here and a solid speed rider aboard......dangerous front running threat

8  Silver Luna   very consistent animal especially for a Knapp runner...can get a nice chase/stalking position

5  Pet Me Pet Me   OK mc debut and surely has the potential to move forward with that race under her belt


race 6    slightly below average clarity

6  Red Alert Day   whole career is par like or better for today's level...can get a good mid pack position for top gun Rosario

1  Kris Silver   right post....right distance.....right jock.....and a small but significant drop in claiming level

5  Very Fair   needs race run 3 races ago and the recent works hint that we may see the strong effort this afternoon

7  Gothic Samurai    good layoff run in last and can build on that effort today


race 7    average clarity

2  High Test    1st timer has strong tightly spaced 5 and 6 furlong drills....seemingly wound up and ready to roll for a hot trainer

1  Indian Knight   owns the ability to set solid pace....has tired in 1st 2 lifetime races but caught a couple of monster fields......sizzling drills lately

7  Clinton   solid debut chasing strong fractions......trainer is better with 2nd timers....Bill can make Hillary proud....maybe Monica too

5  Forward Appeal   race 2 back was a solid 2nd considering this colt broke very poorly and then rushed up


race 8    average clarity

5  Details R. Sketchy   Palma is hot and so are the works for this just claimed set of preparatory works from Palma in many a moon...might own the trump card for this gelding

7  Sea Rascal   trainer has been a little cold but this gelding loves Hollywood and is 2 for 4 at the distance

2  Italian Rules   would have been top choice if this race was on conventional dirt......very sharp but needs to prove self some on the (1 for 7) Hol synthetic 

6  Off The Wall   sharpest drills yet for this horse who only needs a small forward move to compete for all the marbles


race 9    above average clarity

6  Huntsville   brilliant works for this 1st timer......sure looks like he might be a good one

5  Mr. Cappuccino   broke 4 slow and raced a little wide in MSW debut....better trip can put him in the circle of joy

4  Pedlers Way   good work series for this Harrington 1ster....especially like the 100:1 H drilled on the last day of April

3  No Team Spirit   new better trainer and new better rider.......should move forward today

2  Uncommon Sense   so so debut but surely has the right to  move forward
