Hollywood for Saturday 11 June 2011

[private]

 

See Belmont Stakes in Free Selections Area

 

 

race 1    slightly above average clarity

7  Circle The Moon   2 solid races under his belt.....owns good early speed.......sharp recent bullet drill.....good rider/trainer combo

3  Lord Vronsky   bad trip in last hides a solid forward move......just claimed by Hendricks and worked a very quick 4F bullet drill for his new connections....feels good for step up in class

1  He's So Stylish   been away for 4 months (flashed solid ability on the conventional SA dirt) and shows up with a new trainer.....would have rated higher but he broke poorly in both lifetime starts and today must cope with the difficult 1 hole at 6 1/2

 

race 2    average clarity

4  Italian Rules   six year old has been on quite the roll since the blinkers were added 8 races ago...3 of last 4 races clearly makes him the one to overcome here

5  Wall Street Wonder   long layoff but back in the Baffert barn and training like a happy healthy horse....fits as well as any in here if he is ready for his best......owns solid early speed and may capture the front end

3  Korban   disliked the SA dirt and is showing it with 2 straight solid races on the AW......good chance to get a nice stalking position his last 2 races

 

 

race 3    slightly above average clarity

3  Killer Graces   impressive debut and now Hollendorfer takes over......great works for his new trainer.....good shot to graduate today

5  Silent Sue   decent debut for this early speed type followed by an improved 2nd out.....another small forward move and she has a shot to take this

1  Willa B Awesome   won her debut start on opening day and has trained very nicely since not missing a beat in the morning.....appears to sitting on a good improved race 

7  Chloe W   1st timer has a tall task to beat proven runners but she is training like she has some gas......last drill is very impressive....dangerous

 

race 4    slightly above average clarity

1  Acclamation    a monster on the Hollywood turf course and relatively fresh this being only his 4th race after a 7 month break in the action.....love the fact this speed horse rated beautifully in his last to crush the field

6  Bourbon Bay   bombed last two trips out of town.....works suggest this quality marathon runner is happy to be home

5  Haimish Hy   will need his best ever or our top two picks to falter...otherwise running for a piece only

 

race 5    average clarity

6  Getting Lucky   exits a fast heat with a bad trip....hidden somewhat....P Val will be out to make amends

7  A Toast To You    training like a runner and bred to be a nice sprinter....Sadler 1ster looks ready to roll

8  Big Bad Barry   Hollendorfer charge also looks ready for debut run....hasn't missed a beat in the morning

3  Exoxtic Slew   1ster has 2 very strong works at today's 5F distance to his credit....should be ready as well

 

race 6    average clarity

3  Simply Carina   looks loose on the lead once again and if she makes a logically improvement 2nd out after the layoff she will be mighty tough to catch

4  Antidote   history says she will fire a good race 2nd out after a layoff like she did last winter

5  Dynamize   expensive horse has disappointed so far but sure is bred beautifully to like the turf...1st turf today

8  Tiz Gianni   last was the sprint turf gimme to be full throttle today at a turf route

 

race 7    average clarity

1  Coil   bad trip in last and still won in impressive time....great drills should have him ready to cope with his first ever route race

2  Runflatout   capable of brilliant route speed but more importantly learned to rate off of the pace in last

3  Akkadian   nice grass runner is training on the Hol sythentic as if a switch to the AW won't be a problem

 

race 8    average clairty

2  Averoo   solid efforts/figs in last 2 at the same 40K/50K level...doubt little has changed in form

4  Yodelen Dan   always seems to fire and especially appreciates the 1 1/16 distance and Hollywood

3  Porfido   running at the lowest racing level ever....needs a rebound and the recent works suggest we will see one

8  Pleasure To Ride   long layoff but training up to snuff....fits if fully conditioned for today

 

race 9    slightly below average clarity

1  Pleasing Sunrise   has tailed off since showed tons of promise early in career...switch back to AW might awaken a lot

10  Zenidekka   early speed type is on the improve and will most likely try to clear get over and save some ground...fits if he does

7  You Can Dream   mare has been on a roll meeting the challange of stepping up in competiiton

6  Ave Atalanta   56 to 1 shocker off of little morning work last December....much more impressive work now....needs and may show much more today off of the layoff

 

race 10    slightly above average clarity

9  Cambina   very impressive young grass runner and very impressive turf works with the dogs up....ready for another strong effort

3  Star Billing   nice move forward in 2nd lifetime race...believe the trend can continue....should sit in a nice ground saving stalking position

4  Whisper Lousie   consistent GB invader fired a nice effort in 1st run in the good old U S of A....trainer is kind of cold but the horse is awfully consistent

1  Sarah's Secret   3 for 3 sprinting (one on the turf) in 3 lifetime races.....tall task 1st at a route in a Grade 2 Stakes...but....top trainer and training great

 

race 11    slightly above average clarity

8  Filly Power   popped a strong pace and fig 2 races back.....love the 3F bullet speed works for this abbreviated 5F sprint

5  Cactus House   laid up but drops a ton and has an impressive series of works at 5 or 6 day intervals...ready the Mitchell way

6  Elana Mar   1st timer is working likely she is set for her debut into the race wars

1  Dynahere

2  She Can Roar

7  Chi Waa Waa Lady
