Hollywood for Saturday 28 May 2011


Once again a decent looking card. Let's hope it isn't as chalky as last night.


race 1    average clarity

5  Gab Power   consistent turf runner and the reliable Rosario up....also a reassuring recent drill that suggests little has changed form wise

2  Dontmesroundwitjim   both 1 mile grass races since O'Neill claimed fit fine in today's spot

4  Diplo   gelding has rounded into good form running into shape at Tup....ships into a good spot that seemingly fits this Az invader

6  Red Scare   only grass race (albeit a turf sprint) fits OK fig wise awfully well for 1st ever at a route


race 2    average clarity

2  Lit De Bet   competitive sort faced quite a bit better in last...takes only a small drop in claiming price but a significant drop in competition

3  Afleet Sara   laid up 2 1/2 years and didn't face much running at a small time circuit but she is training as if she surely can be a major factor at this low claiming level for F & M's

4  Park Time Luck   tough claiming barn takes a logical drop to help cut the losses on this filly that hasn't panned out too well

5  No Ka Oi   needed last.....decent work since....should show more today


race 3    average clarity

6  Britt's Brother   all 3 lifetime races run on the main track are better then they appear in print......bred to greatly appreciate the sod

1, 1a  Entry   both 1/2's of the entry look formidable here

2  Kingpin    strong move forward in last with the blinkers added both pace and final time wise....small but very capable barn

3  American Blend   mom has tossed 5 grass winners and 3 Stakes winners in 6 as if Gaines means business in this 1sters MSW debut


race 4    average clarity

8  Joe Carl   exits a fast heat in last and now drops a notch.......4 for 8 in the win column on the Hollywood synthetic....very good history when Rosario rides

7  Lease Of Life   horrid trip in last and still almost won...smartly steps up a notch

5  Straightomidnight   placed over head in last has gimme written all over it....drop and go today

4  Mr. Saturdaynight   has won 2 of the last 3 since the blinkers were awfully well and proven on the Hollywood AW surface


race 5    average clarity

6  Jaredella   fell off some in latest but her previous 2 efforts are quite strong....bred to appreciate running a route of ground

8  Working At Night   very strong route race 2 awfully well on the Hollywood synthetic so I doubt handling it will be a problem

9  Izshelegal   finally placed in a MSW race after 6 straight races versus quality winners.....handicapper to trainer: "let your horse gain some confidence and beat a field badly"...I'd make a heck of a trainer if I only knew how to take care of horses

5  Heidi Maria   clunker in last.....previous 3 are solid efforts/figs


race 6    average clarity

2  Mayor Marv   seemingly a great spot for speed and here it is....Baffert/Garcia/lone speed sure seems like a deadly combination

3  Galleta Monstruo   1 for 1 at the somewhat speciality sprint distance of 7 furlongs and 3 for 8 on the AW

6  Nikki'sgoldsteed   hidden move forward in a bit slowly and ran wide versus much stronger...that adjusted for trouble fits fine here


race 7    slightly above average clarity

6  American Lady   powerful MSW debut win and the filly that ran 2nd to her came back to crush the field totally in hand...continues to work like a very nice animal

3  Alaska Miss   appears to love the Hollywood synthetic.....set a very significant pace in breaking her maiden in latest......hasn't missed a beat since.....shot to wire again

7  Rumor   another very nice individual in this talented field......both races on conventional dirt are quite a bit better then par....1st ever on synthetic dirt

8  Miss Reditore   late runner is a little short figure wise but might benefit from a very lively pace up front


race 8     slightly above average clarity

4  The Usual Q. T.   great spot for this quality mid pack grass cutter who dominates at distance of 1 mile distance....5 wins - 1 2nd - 1 3rd in 7 starts

7  Sidney's Candy   can wire the field if he can find the form he possessed last Summer when he broke the Del Mar course record....ran a 50 on The Racing Digest's Top Turf Today figs which is very rare

2  Liberian Freighter   5 for 9 on the grass at Hollywood.....rather sure they will attempt to chase the brilliant early speed of Sidney's Candy and try and ponce in the stretch drive

8  Leroy's Dynameaux   6 pounds off and a very positive rider switch....late runner hoping for a nasty pace up front


race 9   average clarity

9  Sir Ed   nice debut win in a maiden claimer......was placed to win that day and why not only a 10K purchase...kind of rare for Baffert...again well placed to win....debut effort fits and any move forward and he will be especially tough 

12  Veecu   very wide trip in layoff run last hides him somewhat....solid drills since....rather sure sitting a good race

4  Fortunate Appeal   laid off runner sure liked Fpx.....has something to prove on the AW

6  Bold Type   if this one presses I believe he will flatten out versus ample other speed...take back and it should enhance his chances

10  Big Bad Boo   decent late running ability but hangs

3  River's Chapel   not much staying power but P Val will give it his best shot to wire the field
