Hollywood for Friday 25 November 2011


Good looking card today with all the races rated average clarity or better and with many fields of quality and interest.


race 1    average clarity

4  March Mary   1st or 2nd last 5 one turn sprints......last 2 wins are with today's jockey aboard

2  Micailsasheartlite   last at SA was decent and this filly appears to like the Hollywood syn. the best and races with 4 lbs less today

6  Magicallytown   owns good speed in this spot and has a shot to get clear and loose.....good history when on or close to the front end of things


race 2    average clarity

7  Mark Of A Warrior   likes today's 6 1/2 furlong distance......handles the Hol AW just fine......Hollendorfer's stock all seem to be firing.....good rider/trainer combo

1  Looking For Candy   big improved effort in last back in the Bainum barn.....repeat of his last makes him a major factor in this spot

5  Clear To Canada   3 consecutive bad trips (way wide in last) since arriving from Emd......just claimed by Miller and he wheels this gelding back in 2 weeks which seems like a sign he is feeling good

6  Galleta Monstruo   2 straight bad races in a row and now drops way down in claiming.....fragile for sure but might be able to still compete down here at 10K


race 3    average clarity

2  Qatar's Pearl   bet hard in both races in IRE and ran pretty well......sure like the way this colt is training for S Callaghan....rather sure he is ready for his 1st start in the good old U S of A

9  Late Night Sky   impressive 1st on the grass in last from the 11 5/8ths drill since......look for this gelding to try and clear from the outside draw once again

10  Chickie Charms   good down the hill turf sprint in last......continues to train like he is feeling quite good.....will need a clever ride from a difficult post especially at the turf distance of 1 mile

7  Solid South   last sure looks like a needed 1st start to tighten up and be at full throttle in 2nd lifetime start....expecting much more today


race 4    slightly above average clarity

7  Genius   brilliant pedigree......$825K purchase.....1st timer is training sharply.......Baffert is stellar with 1st timers.....and this sure appears to be a decent spot for a 1ster

8  The Director   1st time running for Baffert......appears to greatly appreciate the HOL AW displaying some impressive morning drills.....ran a big effort two races back way back in Jan of 2010 running 2nd to First Dude

4  Doubledown On Ten   lone race way back in the dead of winter was a better than par effort on the SA dirt.......Sadler's work regiment for this colt has ready to roll written all over it

1  Fiarano   caught one tough MSW heat in lone lifetime race in March......can compete if ready but the work pattern is a bit sketchy....might need this.....but then again might not


race 5    average clarity

7  More Than Love   took advantage of a soft pace at Bel to break his maiden in her other lifetime start she had just the opposite scenario.....had to close from off of it with little pace and did for an impressive late running 1 1/2 beaten lengths 4th......not much speed in here outside of our 2nd pick and I think neither jock will be overly aggressive early

6  Assateague   Kee invader looks to be on or near the lead here with what appears to have  a good chance of being a very reasonable pace up front

1  Island Paradise   GB invader showed life on the AW in both lifetime starts overseas and sure is bred to appreciate the sod and a route of ground

3  Starship Flare   lost about 10 lengths total checking 6 different times 1st (albeit at a much lower level) on the grass at Crc and still showed some life/run at the wire...very sharp recent 5/8ths drill at Crc


race 6    average clarity

7  Aldadino   improving running terrific since his last seemingly out of nowhere......believe we will see significantly more horse today

5  Full Kris S.   solid debut in a lower level maiden claimer so smartly steps into a MSW affair......sure like the fact that Rosario sticks with the horse

4  Lethal Intent   useful MSW debut....continues to train fairly well and sure is bred to be a good sprinter....trainer is off to a good start to the new meeting

6  Baraja De Oro     up the track in lone start way back in Jan......gelded since then.....that may have done the trick because the works sure are greatly has tossed some nice runners


race 7    average clarity

2  Jairzihno    good post.... good rider..... good trainer.......good trainer/rider combo.....bred to run all day.....and the recent works are better and that is somewhat subtle

7  Hiatus   love the way this gelding finished his races at 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 miles.......and seems best with 6 to 8 weeks between races and the trainer shows patience and gives it to him

8  Utopian   recent figs fit well but I am a bit leery of the colt getting the 1 1/4 especially off of one average drill in the last 4 weeks since his last race....but considering Shirreffs trains this runner I might be all wet in my thinking

1  Erbeia   should get the distance but might be a better horse on the AW/dirt.....but.....last 2 turf runs this gelding sat off of soft paces giving him little chance to put in a good stretch run...deserves one more chance on the turf


race 8    above average clarity

6  Teddy's Promise   monster run/fig on the dirt at SA in last......handles the Hollywood surface just fine....a ton if repeats last

4  Include Me Out   Ellis trains the top pick and this filly who sure is on the improve with every start.....and we sure get a jock upgrade for today

3  Evita's Sister   consistent late running Sadler sprinter will need her best ever and/or our top 2 picks to falter badly to win this affair

7  High Resolve   long layoff and something to prove on the AW but 1st time Puype  and might be speed of the speed


race 9    slightly above average clarity

2  Summer Soiree   looks loose in this spot and she sure is solid alone on the front end at 1 1/16 or less on any surface.....Crc jock is a good one and knows this filly well

8  Never Retreat    best on firm turf and gets it.....3 for 3 with today's jock aboard......very talented Chi town based trainer in control....well proven shipper

1  Unbridled Humor   will look to chase our top pick (way better history staying off the lead) and challenge her soon after the 1/2 mile mark

6  All Star Heart   loved this filly in her last start and she improved once again......needs the trend to continue and a great ride by Blanc who seemingly needs to beat 3 stellar out of town riders


race 10    slightly above average clarity

4  Creston Cutie   horrendous trip in maiden debut last.....smooth things out with the same or close amount of energy and the owners will be off to the circle of joy

2  Moneytizzy   solid move forward in 2nd lifetime start and 2 good 3F drills since....expecting even more this afternoon

13 Virginia Way    or    14 Zohrah       or both if they draw into the race from the AE list

1  Fiesty Friend   debut was decent and has the right to move forward

7  Satin Bouquet  wide trip in latest somewhat hides an improved effort and now we get Sadler using his top gun in Rosario

12  Stupendus Princess   26 to 1 in mc debut suggests this filly wasn't all that cranked up for her maiden debut....expecting more today
