Hollywood Park for Fright night 22 April 2011

Decent looking card tonight. Yesterday was a little dead inside and I leaned that way a little for tonight's selections. How about the nice ride by Joy Scott in the 8th race yesterday. Saved my fanny.



race 1    slightly below average clarity

1  Money included   all 4 route races on the main track including 1 at Hollywood fit.....John is riding the best of his career and winning at a recent 25% clip for Knapp....gelding can finish when others in here will be gasping for air

2  Star Navigator   Pat Valenzuela has a good chance to be loose and lonely on the front end and we all know how dangerous that can be


race 2    average clarity

4  Dangerous Angel   12 to 1 in a 6 horse field has gimme in MSW affair written all over it....drop into Mdn50K and go today with a solid winning move forward anticipated

3  Not So Notty   decent debut run at GG and has trained sharply since......barn hasn't been firing whatsoever the last 4 or 5 months but I imagine they will turn things around soon...maybe today

2  My Joycie   vanned off in last start but training extremely well since and it is on the Cushion Track at Hollywood


race 3    average clarity

1  American Story   2 for 2 on the AW (albeit the AW at Dmr) and her other 2 races are solid as well.....controlling speed team of Baffert/Martin

4  Gumption   last 2 route races are much better then they look on paper.....and you have to like 3 wins and 1 2nd in 5 lifetime races on the Hollywood AW


race 4    slightly above average clarity

3  Just Heat    nice awakening in last with a win....smartly steps up a notch off of that win and a good series of works since.....feeling good

6  Easy On The Eye   hellooooo route racing....resurrected career since he switched to running a route of ground...3 straight route wins and his last was the strongest....deservedly steps up and gets 3 less lbs....has handled the Hollywood AW just fine in the past

2  Seven Secrets   might be feeling really good because this 8 year old is back in short rest which is something he hasn't be able to do in quite some time


race 5    average clarity

9  Russian River   consistent sort is taking a somewhat suspicious drop but the works suggest she is healthy enough and will tough to beat if she is

2  Roman Charity   very consistent hard trying sort needs to overcome her tendency to hang...maybe blinkers off once again can help

5  Seachi   claimed for 62.5K last Jan and here we are running fro 25K....ouch.....might be now or never 

1  Stunningly   long hiatus from the track but the red hot Puype won a with similar horse yesterday....whole career fits fine fig wise


race 6    average clarity

6  Extra Fifty   very nice wake up at a route on the sod in last......and now we get 5 lbs off and a better grass rider...blinkers on and training change looks like a good thing

1  Causeithertz   on the right end of the learning curse and the trainer has been very reliable the past 6 months or so...we also get a jock upgrade

2  Forward Appeal   very solid 2nd on the dirt considering he had a very bad trip....good turf pedigree and Hendricks is good 1st time on the sod

3  Valuation   competitive in all 3 lifetime starts all of which were on the turf....weight off and Blanc has been handling the turf nicely...cold trainer or would have rated higher


race 7    average clarity

6  Samba School   likes the Hollywood synthetic....likes the distance....and she should get a very nice stalking position which is something that she responds to

3  Bar Rock Omama   improving sort handled Hollywood's synthetic surface well.....likes some time between races and gets it

4  Love Theway Youare   this filly was our top pick in her last race at just short of 8 to 1 in a five horse affair and won...still like her but she faces quite a bit tougher then what she saw in her last...does get a possible positive switch to Rosario (but it does seem strange to can a jock who just won with her)


race 8    average clarity

5  Me Salty   only race on the main track with blinkers off is strong...powerful bullet drill ....rather sure sitting on a lifetime best 

6  Blind Magic   race lacks speed and this colt appears to have the most.......a good speed rider aboard in Pedroza

8  Tuba Man   laid up since 1 Sept but his conditioning up to snuff....likes the Hollywood synthetic.....Bejarano knows this gelding well

1  Kessabtsi   turn back to a sprint should help staying power...seems best if he doesn't challenge the 6 horse or any other speed too early

4  Wheels Of Justice   rules say I have to give 5 hosres in the last he is
