Hollywood for Wednesday 1 December 2010

[private]

Why on earth did Hollywood run 10 races on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If they ran 8 on Friday and 9 on both Saturday and Sunday that would be enough for one more horse a race this 5 day race week. Not only that, it must be pure hell in the Racing Office hustling horses into races. Please wise up and keep race-cards to a maximum of 9 races at least until the numbers on the back-side increase someday in the future.

 

Small fields but top pick is only the morning line favorite in 2 of the 8 races.

 

 

race 1    average clarity

1  Marquet Rebel   wide trip in last hides a solid awakening....likes 4 or 5 weeks between races and gets it...steps up...might be feeling really good

3  Milty Way   eaten alive in last setting a suicidal pace on a dull rail...might get away....back to Rosario who won on this gelding 2 races back

 

race  2    average clarity

3  Canthavehim   major jockey upgrade....solid fig in last and likely to move forward 2nd out after the layoff and with the aforementioned rider change

4  Summers At Delmar   very consistent animal on the AW.....seems best at 6 and 6 1/2 F...Canani is uncanni (y) at "streaking" with a mid or low priced claimer

5  Really Uptown   one horse barn has their "pet" ready to roll fresh once again if past history is worth a hoot

 

race 3    slightly above average clarity

2  Expensive Art   best efforts are fresh and this horse has been away since July......apprentice will try to get loose and lonely on the front end and never look back with a fresh legged horse

6  Madeline Ruby   consistent sort and a hot barn.....often a deadly combination....can get a nice chase position sitting in 2nd or 3rd and try and ponce in the stretch position chase 

5  Startjumpin Marnie   very consistent mare has been freshened up with a prolonged work series and drops to lowest level ever

 

race 4    average clarity

3  Finish Rich In Nyc   by far the best run of this 3 year olds career was her lone race on the Hol AW......very strong run versus these that would make her extremely tough if she can repeat it

1  Classy Eva   trainer is doing as well as he has done in a long time.....filly is proven fresh and she sure is training like a fresh endeavor will once again bring out her best

2  Margie Blackjack  some gaps in this 1sters training aren't what you want to see but then again she does show some strong drills

 

race 5    average clarity

3  Broken Dreams  micro sized field should help this late runner avoid traffic troubles making her late move....ran 2nd to a quality next out winner in Reba Is Tops

1  Softly Singing   tossed a clunker in last....race 2 back fits and the strong recent drills suggest she will rebound to that effort or better

 

race 6    average clarity

2  Look To The Sky   never missed the board in 5 Hol AW races....Miller is better in sprint races then route races so turn back to a sprint maybe a good thing

6  Popular Date   3 for 4 in the win column on the Hollywood synthetic....small drop should aid in getting back to the win end of things

5  Rev Her Up   competitive sort seemingly runs her best with Bejarano on her back...does need to prove she can win higher then the 8K bottom level...but then again this only a mini step above that

 

race 7    average clarity

5  Jana Gail  filly sure appears to be on the upswing and the same can be said for her trainer as well...doubt step up is a problem

4  Siberian Heart   horrid turf sprint trip in last worked out to be a solid adjusted for trouble fig in this spot...proven two turns on the AW so I doubt a route of ground will be a hindrance

1  Bellini Bliss    laid up disappointing Gaines charge has had enough time off to right the ship.......needs a rebound

 

race 8    slightly above average clarity

2  Brutally Handsome   both lifetime races are impressive for today's level of racing...Puype is quietly having a very nice meeting 

1  Ona Warpath   decent mc claiming debut with decent final time and solid pace....good fit for 5F 2nd career race

7  Gifted Student   just missed getting to the circle of joy the only two times Pedroza rode....he is aboard today

3  Free Lane  decent looking work series for this 1ster...bred for speed and a 5F race

5  Make It A Cougar   15 months off since lone lifetime race but the barn is waking up and the gelding is training up to snuff
