Hollywood for Sunday 12 May 2013


Just 6 days till the Preakness and for those still interested in our special full card Preakness day publication please sign up as early as possible as logistically speaking it helps us out some.

Best of luck this afternoon with this so so card.


race 1    slightly above average clarity

1  Pure Blush   nice forward move 2nd time under the guidance of Peter Miller.......ran well turf to AW in N Cal........and maybe most importantly just worked a solid 6F just 4 days ago indicating this filly is feeling good

3  Rolanda   much needed drop in maiden claiming in last and won like a good thing.......will need a little more here most likely but the last should be a positive learning experience and winning is contagious in most sports including thoroughbred racing

4  Warren's Lorie S.   not much figure wise but looks like lone speed with a stout rider speed rider aboard in Maldonado


race 2    average clarity

3  Sheaparoux   easily best ever was this fillies lone sprint race which was run 4 races back in her MSW debut.......race was quite a bit better than par for today's slightly lower level

5  Swimmin Insunshine    not much in last 2 endeavors........what we want (like our top choice) is her maiden debut in this case 3 races back.....the race was a very impressive run disguised by a trip from you know where

2  Lucky Student    flashed substantial early gas in latest and rightfully tired.......shot to be loose here and with a jock aboard who knows how to get the most out of a horse on the front end of things


race 3     average clarity

 4  Lanida   definitely the one to beat if she overcomes her good race bad race good race pattern because if she doesn't the bad race is next

1  Distant Image    3rd race since Sadler took over the training duties......and this is the 1st race his new runner has returned off of relatively short rest.....and she has responded well to relatively short rest in the past

6  Lemon Hero   overdo drop for this filly who is consistent but has been running versus a little too tough........lifetime best was with Bejarano aboard and he is back up today


race 4    slightly below average clarity

8  Ten Tequilas   7 1/2 furlongs seems like a good fit and it often isn't for so improved drills since his last......believe he is sitting on his best ever this afternoon

1  Unusual Flash   good mc debut and Ron Ellis so much better with 2nd time starters.......that'll do

2  Chico Suerta   best efforts have been the 3 races where this Sadler runner ran at the same level or dropped.....drops today

6  Southern Heart

Long-shot possibilities:   5  Warren's Cliff S.   1st time gelding today and never trained better........trainer is having his best year in many a moon


race 5    average clarity

6  Four Better    just claimed by the red hot Hollendorfer and he must have the trump card for this filly because she is training since the claim like a vastly improved individual

5  Light Of Life   need her effort 2 races back.....and we might get it has she recently worked the best drill she has shown in quite some time........and the trainer has woken up of late

3  Love Tale   another who needs a rebound to her race 2 back.......dangerous here if she does rebound as she has never raced as low as today

10  Romantic Wish


race 6    average clarity

2  Patriotic Lion   inside speed has been good this week and this four year old has as much as anyone in the field........and....... he sure has responded well to the blinkers on in his last 2 races

4  Just Irish   solid wake up in last and it is disguised by a bad trip........Espinoza ought to be out to make amends.........extended 1 turn distance of 7 1/2F seems like a good fit

6  Caveman Keno   decent 2nd lifetime start in last and it was his 1st on the Hol AW.......claimed by Mulhall and her runners have preformed better than her record for the young meet would indicate

7  Spectacularjourney


race 7    slightly above average clarity

1  Lime Rickey   by far the most credentials in the race when it comes to running in marathon affairs.......and it sure is a plus to have Bejarano as your rider when he can make the 115 lb assigned weight

5  Dhaamer   somewhat disappointing return to the race wars in layoff last.......deserves another shot.......a ton here if he is up to his "A game"

2  Diamondsdiplomat   not impossible to wire if they don't send the only other speed horse in the race who is the 3 horse


race 8    slightly below average clarity

1  Slycy    well placed to win.......or.........claim me please.......very stout 1st time in the Puype barn runner if he is still in relatively good health

7  Don Perico   similar to our top pick.......dangerous speed horse on the 50% drop down in claiming........or claim me please......tough call

4  Gallent Gent   yet another dropping in this race........this drop doesn't bother me as much as it is off of an 11 month layoff........2 for 2 at the distance

3  Afleet Cowboy

Long-shot possibilities:  5  Jeffrey's Groove   likes the distance.....back in short rest......trainer loves to score at a price and seems overdo......and the horse has run well numerous times as a long-shot


race 9    slightly above average clarity

5  Tizmetizyou   better than par in her last turf effort 2 races back.......and 3 solid positives for today........better grass rider than who was up in the race 2 back.......cut back to a sprint looks like a good thing......and seemingly training the best she ever has

7  Camryn Kate   horse seemingly has run into shape and once her trainer Neil  French gets his runners in good form he does a nice job of keeping them there.....last fits......more would be icing on the cake

9  Burns Turn   just claimed by Sadler who historically is dynamite 1st out after the claim......and he puts Gomez up which makes for a major turf rider upgrade over Stein

8  Blake's Magic

4  Kanotwait

3  Harlan's Trick
