Hollywood for Friday night 15 July 2011



Just a reminder we will not be covering the Fairplex meeting this year except for a few select days and even that is only a possibility. There was little interest last year and the break should do this aging brain of mine some good.


We will be putting up a longshot in this spot on days that we have a price shot in a race where he did not qualify as one of our 2, 3, or 4 given selections. Yesterday our 41 to 1 longshot ran 3rd and paid $11.60 to show.

Longshot not listed is in race 4, number 8 Casino Royalty: checked about 4 early in last and then showed some life.....impressive 6F work since.


race 1    average clarity

3  Deluxe Bus   this filly is 2 for 2 in the win column for Mitchell who has had a tremendous meet at Hollywood where he has not been afraid to drop and lose a horse with the sweet purse money being offered...only true closer in the field a big plus

4  Lime Rock Revenge   lead type only drops and just worked a sharp 5/8ths.....might be speed of the speed but at what cost?


race 2    average clarity

4  Pool Of Fire   just fired a solid 5F at Pln in a race that should fit fine versus these if he can duplicate the effort on the Hollywood synthetic

6  Outrageous Belle   Hofmans isn't the best mc 1st start trainer but the drills here suggest he might upset the apple cart....and mon's been a solid producer of precocious runners

7  Warren's Morgan   1ster hasn't missed a beat in the morning and the drills keep getting sharper and sharper.......maybe peaking at the right time

8  Toluca   1ster is training like she has good early speed and also is bred to be quick early


race 3    slightly above average clarity

5  Mandated Bliss   nasty post in last and still ran a nice 2nd at 6F on the turf....much better draw jock and a good dependable trainer

2 Aqua Fever   nice move on 2nd turn in last and tired in late stretch...back to 1 turn sure looks like a smart move

6  Klassy Saint   needs to avoid flattening out late at 6F....believe he can last if P Val takes back a little reserving something for the last 1/2 furlong


race 4    average clarity

4  Disturbing Gal   1st start was a gimme.....2nd start was a hidden go...... broke about 7 slow and only got beat by 6 lengths....solid bullet gate work is reassuring of a better start tonight in 3rd lifetime race

1  Girls Lacrosse   debut at 115 to 1 was a bad trip solid run....fell off a little in last....can rebound to debut run

6  Birthday Tune   2 straight OK efforts....needs a couple of lengths of improvement to be par for the given level.....maybe blinkers off can be the catalyst to get there

2  Bayona   race lacks speed and this one seems as likely as anyone to snatch the lead here.....and that might make him brave


race 5    average clarity

3  West Ruler   talented horse tossed a clunker in last....but the works suggest a rebound in form is going to occur

1  Gracias Mil   crushed 9 foes on the dirt by 11 in a good purse MSW in CHI in lone race last well and is out of an Irish broodmare so the turf may be a fit

7  Coolofthevening   bad trip missed by 2 1/2.......good trip won.....bad trip (sat too far of a lack of pace up front) missed again by 2 1/ recent drill....good trip has a decent shot at top prize

8  English Royal   good horse on the turf or AW but a difficult low % post at 6F on the turf....but.......a good sprint turf jock and owns tactical speed


race 6    average clarity

7  Valley Fog   impressive debut especially the finish....high % conditioner 2nd time out of the box...bred to handle the 7F

5  Thunder's Heat   on the improve and now takes a logical drop out of MSW racing....cold trainer could use a win

3  Tapfortexas   nice move forward in latest....trend needs to continue

1  Windy Pack   last might have been the learning lesson and it maybe full throttle today for a high % trainer with limited starters in 2011


race 7    slightly above average clarity

2  Downhill Diva    2 sprints after the layoff and 2 strong works since and now on to a route where this filly performs her best.....trainer is solid 3rd out after a layoff and sprint-sprint-route....should sit pretty on or near the lead

1  Awesomemundo   pace up front set things up nicely for this closer but she sure looked good late with a hand ride finish past the wire

5  Wild Rose   impressive 1st run in the U S of A in which this filly was blocked or she might have won....somewhat concerned she has only one listed work since that race


race 8    average clarity

3  Truckin   last looks like the gimme for today's full throttle go.....shipper had only 1 drill before the "gimme" and now has 5 drills leading up to today's race

9  Preferred Mandate   off six weeks but training as if that is a good thing....also has a nice history when drawing outside posts like today

6  Marcy's Woods   dangerous speed here and only 5 1/2 furlongs to stay.....average rider's best shot is usually with a speed horse on the AW

8  Polly's Dancer   decent return to the races after being away for 7+ months.......very positive rider change hints strongly that a forward move is forthcoming

1  My Secret Life   long hiatus from the track but drops in claiming and Koriner can be dangerous off of long layoffs

5  Brass Plate    deep deep closer hoping for a battle royal up front
