Hollywood for Thursday 10 May 2012


TAKE NOTE:  With the success of our full card Ky Derby Day selections as the catalyst there is a good chance The Racing Digest will be offering full card selections for Belmont on Belmont Stakes day, June 9. 

Average looking Thursday card.

Friday's appears to be a very good race card.


race 1    slightly about average clarity

4  Yankee Dan   2 wins and 2 2nd's the 4 times this gelding found the front end....and he sure looks loose here.........good spot for the slumping Rosario to get his 2nd score at the meet and jump start his mojo

5  Adam N Ryan   late runner will be hoping the 3 horse puts the heat on the 4 so he can plod along and possibly got up and pass some tired horses

3  Warren's Marshall   1 for 1 on the lead for only lifetime win.....doubt leads here so he will need to chase with success which would be a lifetime first


race 2    slightly above average clarity

Warren's Hopeful   most of career fits well here versus this lackluster group......does tend to hang but every hanger eventually finds a level/competition where she will run on by the last horse

5  Musical Grace   appears to have the best early gas in the field......and that is important for this lead type only.......route fit should help this mare's chances of getting the extended sprint distance

3  Roulette It Roll   last wasn't encouraging but maybe that race was a work-out as this filly is back in 6 days......hmmmmm........will need a major rebound and/or our top 2 choices to falter to find the circle of joy here


race 3    average clarity

2  Love And Faith   race 2 back fits well.......her 1st ever on Lasix and it was with an apprentice up who wasn't exactly on fire....caught slop in last and didn't do much but did move forward pace wise.....drops out of MSW racing and this time has a proven apprentice aboard

6  Cee's The Year   on the improve with almost every start.......takes the ever dangerous drop out of MSW racing.......but had to make 2nd choice as Ron Ellis has not won MSW to maiden claiming in at least his last 17 attempts

5  Wildakceleration   toss out last in slop......races at GG fit well but the 5 2nd's in 7 lifetime starts seems alarming as far as her understanding what winning is all about.....still.......dangerous contender

4  Demonsterous   low % trainer but not with horse's 2nd time under his the 2 6F works he has got out of this filly to help her endurance at a ever was lone race on the Hollywood synthetic.....very likely to move forward quite a bit today


race 4    slightly below average clarity

8  Jim's Decision   seems to fire best with 4 or more weeks between races and finally gets it.........Cerin has won 6 of the last dozen and one half starts with the blinkers off......they are off today and he has been on a roll the last 6 weeks or so 

3  Confer   decent win off of the layoff in last......will need more today though.....just worked a solid 5F drill last week and surely can move forward 2nd out after the layoff....highly likely to get a ground saving trip

7  Minister D'oro   good move forward in latest his 2nd out after the layoff.......Miller is often better 3rd out after layoffs........drops to win and he's decent in that trainer category too

2  Warren's King   decent finisher in this group but must overcome a strong tendency to hang in the stretch....P Val is looking for his 1st comeback (again) win



race 5    slightly below average clarity

7  Lovestealer   been in waiting for this condition for quite some sure look good hitting the track every week since 2 March.....should be muscled up and ready to roll....owns some tactical speed which should come in handy from the 7 post

8  Gittel   sure seems to like route racing.....failed in only turf effort but it looks like it was a grass sprint gimme.....deserves another shot......trainer has been calling all the right shot of late...good chance to be on or near the lead in reasonable pace

1  Island Paradise   Gomez/Gallagher have been a hot team the last 2 months.....done little wrong in 3 lifetime races.......2 in GB and 1 in the USA....impressive 4 consecutive solid 6F works......rather sure doing very well

9  Mia Isabel      scratched Saturday for this race......only lifetime turf route is very strong for a 2 year old in August....needs a clever ride from Krigger from a difficult post


race 6    average clarity

9  D'princess    impressive works for his new trainer Canani.....drops a notch.....something Canani isn't afraid to do.......has a decent shot to get the front end here

3  Valeria    dropped in last and the owners got their best check so far in 7 starts......drops a notch again to get a larger one and maybe a trip to the winners circle.......Shirreffs seems to been in win mode

7  Vaadka   big awakening in 2nd lifetime start....must feel good for Zucker to step this runner up 10K off of 7 weeks off.......only mount of the day for Smith is usually a good thing

4  Propero   showed little in MSW debut but Mitchell is stellar dropping out of MSW's and 2nd time lifetime race......dangerous


race 7    slightly about average clarity

1  Rock And Glory    what was it that made this filly run so big in last?........the slop?........the blinkers off?........not sure.....but I do know that if she repeats her last she will be difficult to overcome....wire to wire 

3  Heidi Maria   owns some very significant efforts/figs at a route on the main track at SA and Dmr.....has a little more to prove at Hollywood

4  Jinny Jump Up   last sure looks like a needed run off of a long hiatus from the track........full go today is likely......ran 2 solid races on the Arlington Park AW in the summer of 2010


race 8    average clarity

5  Marlenadalena   Robbins isn't much usually with 1st time starters but the works here are far too strong to ignore especially for a filly State-bred....turf pedigree is decent

6  Angel's Moon   fell off some in last were soft prior to to race...and now the drills our markedly better.....think we will see lifetime best today

7  Unusual Darling   so so work tab for this Mullins 1ster but he sure has been on fire the 1st time a horse runs on the turf including 1st time starters

10  Sea Of Red   like the pedigree and the drills for this filly making her MSW debut.....I don't like the post especially for a horse with no live racing experience

1  Luckyvic   handles the grass fairly well but tends to flatten out late.....will need very best to have a shot

8  Attigirl Meadow    Puype 1st timer's works aren't very stout but seems to be best of what's left and gets Gomez
