Hollywood for Monday 30 May 2011

"We must be prepared to make herioc sacrifices for the cause of peace that we make ungrudgingly for the cause of war. There is no task that is more important or closer to my heart."

Decent card to finish off a very nice weekend of racing.

 

[private]                                      

 

race 1    average clarity

1  Startjumpin Marnie   consistent mare has a solid chance to sit in a good chase position.......back to Rosario who is 2 for 2 on this gal

3  Farley Star   7 year old mare rightfully steps up to 50K claiming after two straight wins at the 40K tag.....morning preparation continues solid....maybe even improved somewhat

 

race 2    average clarity

2  Quintons Destiny   hidden ability here with this gelding who had bad trips in both career starts last Fall....full of run in both efforts......long layoff but training sharply for 1st run in maiden claiming

6  Screaming Destiny   overdo drop out of MSW for this colt who owns some early gas....strong recent bullet 5/8ths drill.....trainer could use a winner

8  Meadow Road   another dropping out of MSW racing who owns fig/efforts that fine just fine here

4  Private Bounty   yet another MSW dropper whose race 2 back would be tough to beat....been away 1/2 a year but training up to snuff to be ready for his return to the race wars.....very difficult to split my given 4 selections as they all possess solid potential to be formidable in this spot

 

race 3    average clarity

4  Cato Major   loves the Hollywood synthetic and it really showed with a strong move forward in her last....smartly steps up for a barn who isn't afraid to lose a horse

8  Queen Mariles   very dangerous sort when she clears early and she seemingly has the best early speed and the right connections in Mitchell and P Val to get the task accomplished

5  Frequent Fame   takes a logical significant drop in claiming price......has 4 wins in 9 starts on the Hol Cushion track....she is 1 for 12 on other surfaces 

3  Hot Citizen   drops to cut the losses of what so far has panned out to be a bad re-claim by Truman......2 for 4 on the AW with both of those wins coming at today's 6F distance.

 

race 4    average clarity

3  Nahem   trainer is red hot and this gelding made a strong forward move in his latest......seemingly gets a good position near the front end of things in a race lacking speed

7  Boxeur Des Rues   nice sprint grass tune-up in last.......last route grass race which was run last Fall is very strong

4  Cat In The Forest   1st ever at a route but bred to handle long distances...looks loose in this spot and has a rider in T C Baze that is solid with route speed types

 

race 5    slightly below average clarity

4  Cut N' Deal   4 solid races in a row for this maiden claimer.....proven at the somewhat speciality sprint distance of 7F

8  Our Senior Moments   on the improve with every start.....4thcareer run can be the charm if the trend continues

2  Chi Cha Cha   good maiden debut sprint followed a bad race running long....back to a sprint and a positive rider change

6  Point Mugu    really like when good trainers make maneuvers that are out of the norm.....back in 8 days for Drysdale fits being out of the norm....also....blinkers on is a successful stat for Neil

 

race 6    average clarity

4  Big Burly Boy   2 better then they appear on paper lifetime starts  run last Summer for this 4 year old.....long layoff but training as if all systems are go for his return to the races 

5  Tales Of Tigger   impressively won an eye to eye duel in her lone lifetime start.......and the work since suggest he will move forward

2  Marcy's Woods   owns solid early speed and used it in a near miss layoff run in last.....can chase and that may come in handy here as there is plenty of speed in this affair

7  Requisition   believe if this youngster presses the issue early he will fade in the stretch......take back off of it and he can be closing on many tiring early speed horses

 

race 7    average clarity

5  Artuga   exits a very stout MSW race where being beaten by 7 lengths was still a good effort.......training forwardly...1st at a route and 1st on the grass but beautifully bred to handle running long on the green stuff

7  Sea Song's Grace   acted up badly at the gate in MSW debut so toss that effort out.....training very aggressively for 2nd lifetime start......another with stellar route grass pedigree

9  Roxanne O    wide trip in last and also needed the race......good conditioning since.....should move forward for stout connections

8  Candy's Girl   two U S of A turf sprints aren't too bad......will need to move forward a little 1st at a route

 

race 8    average clarity

1  Amazombie   2 consecutive powerful races for this fabulous Cal-bred who is starting to look like a top B C Sprint canidate...Smith knows this gelding well....2 for 2 at 6F.....2 for 2 at Hol

6  Supreme Summit   whenever Bejarano rides this animal he seems to fire his best which is quite good....Bejarano is up today.....seemingly has never trained any better

7  Cost Of Freedom   very hard to argue with 9 of 15 wins at the distance....and 4 of 5 at the distance at Hol....yikes

 

race 9    average clarity

7  Malibu Pier   good speed in a race that seemingly will favor front runners somewhat...in good form and the recent drills suggest little has changed

6  Restless Soul   improved in last 1st time under the auspicious of N Drysdale.....never trained better.....expect the same or better today

3  Turning Top   seemingly a way better grass horse at Hollywood then Santa Anita....good shot to see more today

2  Cozi Rosie   consistent late runner maybe compromised by what looks like reasonable pace up front...but it wouldn't be the 1st time that a predictable pace scenario turns out to be all wet

 

race 10    average clarity

1  Call For Justice   on the upswing at Tup and now shows up at Hollywood with a hot trainer in Puype......training as if the Hollywood synthetic has turned him into an improved animal even more

7  Clocker Moment   late runner is consistent and should come flying once again when others will be gasping competing at the extended sprint distance of 7F

3  Quietly Waiting   good move forward in last 1st back on the Hol surface.....should be in the hunt from the get go

10  Expensive Pens   decent debut and went off at 18 to1 so might have needed the race somewhat....good chance to show more today in 2nd lifetime start

8  Eyesablazin   small slice of the gimmick pie only

2  Temptation   small slice of the gimmick pie only
