Hollywood for Saturday 17 July 2010


Handicappers Corner   one more day of Hollywood Sunday and then it is on to beautiful Del Mar


race 1    average clarity

6  Lucy Got Lucky   just claimed by Morey who is dynamite 1st out after the claim....consistent horse should get a nice chasing trip behind a suspect leader 

1  Saint Cindy   wide trip in last or would have had a shot...claimed back by Carava and he puts J Garcia back aboard who has ridden this filly well

2  Acute Velocity   consistent sort drops back to a more suitable level 2nd out after the claim


race 2    slightly above average clarity

4  Teddy's Promise   best set of works for a Hofmans 1ster in quite some time especially considering she is a 2 year old state bred

7  Faisca  barn is much tougher with 2nd time starters...this filly trains like a runner and I think she will show it today

3  Miles Rules   decently bred and the Sise has been sending out mamy his 1st timers ready the last few months

8  Love At The Bay


race 3    slightly below average clarity

5  Wenden   blinkers on for this already fast speedster....won her 1st 3 lifetime races then caught a couple of monsters in her next 2 races....faces much easier today

1  Fairway Road   Dollase barn has really woken up...lone lifetime grass race fits fine in this spot

6  Great Atlantic   laid up late runner is training as if she is ready to roll in her return to the race wars


race 4    slightly above average clarity

2  Moon The French   last looks like a prep race (off for 2/3 of a year) for today's Grade 2 affair... Baffert has been winning local big races by the handfuls lately

4  Free Flying Soul   nice consistent sort would have been my top pick if this race was less than 7 furlongs......needs to overcome her tendency to flatten at 7F or longer

5  Make For Magic   sharp drill says good chance at a rebound...should be closing fats late


race 5    average clarity

1  Sammartino   solid first on the grass in last racing a bit too wide...blinkers on (nice 3/8 drill 4 days ago) to help focus and hopefully be closer to the rail and pace today

8  Loro   broke very bad....rushed.....and ran a little wide and of course tired......has had 7 weeks off to learn the game with the capable guidance of J Shirreffs...1st on the sod but bred decently for it

6  Intuitive Nature   on the improve with every start...closer seems to have enough early pace to fire into

4  Gallatin's Run


race 6    above average clarity

2  Bullfighter    works say all set for the winners circle with this Baffert lai up dropper.....whole career handles these fig and pace wise

6  Sognatore   significant drop and a very big rider switch

3  Beauteous Maximus  closer gets some pace to make his late run

5  Sky Searcher


race 7    slightly above average clarity

6  My Maloof Rocker   looks loose on the lead in this spot and best of all is a very rateable animal

2  Operetta Italiano   no shot in last with a very wide trip...good chance to get a chasing position behind our top pick

3  Entabeni   figs on the lawn fit fine but...needs to keep from flattening out past 1 mile


race 8    average clarity

7  Partywithlarryz   solid move forward in latest which was the 1st run for his new trainer.....Carava and Rosario have been stellar together the last couple of months

5  Gentle Romeo  drifted out or could have won his last at a higher level.....has his physical troubles but may have one more good race left in him...I doubt many more

1  High Standards  last is decent and his run 2 back is solid....may be able to get a good chase postion behind a suspect leader

10  Gold Star Status


race 9    average clarity

1  Sydney's Candy   yet to prove himself with a significant pace in any race but he sure has run big when allowed to coast along early....2nd pick is capable decent pace

4  Skipshot   send or sit off of the heavy favorite....either way does have a shot at the upset

2  Alphie's Bet   wins this with his big late run if 1 and 4 hhok up


race 10   slightly below average clarity

 9  Stormy Ambition   decent chance to be loose on the lead with a good speed rider aboard.....postive rider switvh

11  Southern Victory   drop down has a decent chance to get a good chase poeition...G Mandella is having a nice Hollywood meeting

4  Philly Star   earned a par like fig with a very wide trip at a route in his last...might be closing late at a big price

10  Jesse's Soul

8  Ned Page
