Hollywood for Saturday 10 December 2011


 Average card at best today. Good luck to all!

race 1    slightly above average clarity

3  Indiara   filly sure seems to have learned how to make things easier on her herself as she has smoothed out the kinks of late with Quinonez aboard.....trainer is sizzling hot

1  Perfect Finish   solid forward move in last 1st after the Belvoir puts Bejarano up who he has had success with the last 4 or 5 months

5  Dish The Dirt   consistent late closer especially kicks it in late in 6 1/2 and 7 furlong affairs

6  She's Very Rare   V Garcia takes a logical drop (still higher from where he claimed her) with this mare who is 4 for 4 at the distance.....yikes


race 2    average clarity

2  Sean S   small but capable outfit take over the training duties and they take a logical drop with this filly who is training rather seems well meant for his new connections

1  Lady Lohr   laid up over a year but smartly drops for his new conditioner who is quite dangerous when he takes over the training duties of a given horse....and.....fresh speed is dangerous speed and this one appears to have the most early gas in this spot

6  Lily Amore   seemingly does her best running at Hollywood so most likely this her last shot to run it's AW for quite awhile......bit short on figs but is a competitive sort and drops a little

9  Lakes And flowers   faced way tougher in last and had to duel and attempt to last for 7F in decent pace on a somewhat dull inside.....race was a hidden move forward......fits just fine if manages another move in the right direction


race 3    slightly below average clarity

6  Cardiff Agent   training awfully well as if the rest did him a lot of good.....very competitive sort when right

3  Daylight Storm   laid up 1 1/4 years but very dangerous at this drop down level if he is ready to roll fresh....somewhat sketchy work pattern.......seems about 50/50 that he is ready

5  Slam Slew   has fired lifetime best on the Hollywood synthetic....trainer is red hot....rider is not...seems like a fair trade off


race 4    slightly below average clarity

6  Smoking G   decent debut on the AW way back in as if 100% ready to roll in his comeback race......1st on the green stuff but good turf sprint pedigree

7  American Art   useful debut 5 weeks ago......jockey upgrade today......1st on the sod but bred decent enough for it....trainer is better with 2nd time starters

5  Bling Cha Bling   not exactly headed in the right direction but switches to the grass and switches to Rosario......shot to wake up.....tons of ability if he does

9  J Man    lone grass race appears to be his best of 4 lifetime starts and the conditioner is stout 2nd time on the lawn which is today's scenario


race 5    average clarity

2  Obsess   exits a fast heat where this gelding got caught wide pressing a strong pace and still managed to stick around for 2nd......prior race was also very solid......and likes the AW at Hol

3  Stone Hot   much better sprint endeavors in 2011 than appear in print.......Berrios/Jones make for a very dangerous combo with price shots especially

6  Clear   bad trip in 2nd lifetime race somewhat hides a small move forward.....back in short rest 2nd out after a layoff is usually a good thing for Sadler runners

9  Sun's Out   just fired his best grass race ever and I believe this gelding prefers the main track.....if so it is logical this 3 year old might fire his best ever today on the Hol AW


race 6    average clarity

3  Kim's Leading Lady   has been facing quite a bit better......believe he has held his form....does tend to hang some so Talamo best stay busy on him if he is in the hunt for the win at the wire

4  Joe Carl   very hard to argue with 5 wins and 1 2nd and 2 3rd's in in 9 starts on the Hollywood synthetic and 7 for 19 in the win column at today's distance

2  Joyful Success   just claimed by Hollendorfer and his new runner is sure training sharply......1st at a route but good breeding to handle the distance of ground....should be prominent from the get go

7  Guiding Hand    off 8 weeks but working up to snuff and handles the 1 1/16 rather well and the AW....after a great SA meeting the now cold jock could use a win


race 7    average clarity

2  Where's Henry   big somewhat hidden move forward in last.....wide near decent tune-up work....and Bonde horses are all firing of late

5  Brannaman   don't think we saw the real Brannaman in MSW debut last.......trained  like a good one prior to debut...may have needed to get his feet wet

9  Out Of Bounds   decent debut....good work tab since.....more likely this afternoon

3  Time To Doubledown   hot rider/trainer combo the last couple of mounts....1st timer looks ready off of a solid prolonged work regiment


race 8    average clarity

6  Holladay Road   powerful race/effort/fig in last and ample rest to be able to repeat it......if he does it will take a bad trip to keep him out of the winners circle

3  Gab Power  likes ample time between starts and his conditioner shows patience and gives it to her....Rosario has a good history with this late runner...should be flying late once again

10  Reach A Decision   invader is 1st time Sadler and is sharp in the a.m........owns tactical speed and will need to use it with an outside post in which to start from

12  Romeo Royale   has fired par like efforts for today's level all 4 races at 1 1/6 or less since the blinkers were removed.....and now is training better than ever....also has tactical speed which is a good thing having the far outside post


race 9    slightly above average clarity

2  Charm The Lake   on the improve with every start......very impressive wide trip win in last......never worked better

1  Weemissfrankie    stout races in all 4 lifetime starts......trainer/rider have been quite the combo for the last 4 or 5 months

6  Self Preservation   much better horse than appears in print......this baby has had her fair share of trouble in her U S of A races


race 10    slightly below average clarity

4  Cloud Top    Talk about getting the most out of limited starters (4 for 10 winners and 8 for 10 in the money in 2011)......trainer usually has his stock ready fresh including 1st timers.....drills are strong for a trainer that doesn't really push them that hard in the a.m.

10  Rass Stone   another 1st timer with decent drills and a seemingly soft group of foes who haven't exactly shocked the tele-timer so far

3  Swiss Game   on the rebound this Fall and just popped lifetime best with the positive rider change to Rosario....solid if manages another move forward

2  Idontrollonshabbos   train decently before mc debut and ran OK......good drill since and now seemingly faces weaker on the drop in mc price......another who fits if makes a forward move

9  Fear The Beard   nothing special number wise but at least he should be closing well late coming off a route endeavor

7  Jay's Firetruck   bet some in mc debut last but had little chance to perform as he sat too far back in a sprint totally void of any pace....thus he could only manage to close down a couple of lengths in the stretch

Longshot Possibilities:   12 Skip Tony    training rather soft prior to a so so run in his m c debut quite a bit better now......trainer is usually better with 2nd time maiden claimers
