Hollywood for Saturday 26 May 2012


Remember:  A special 13 race Belmont race card on June 9th is being offered for only $25.95. That breaks down to less than $2 per race.


Average but interesting card today.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

6  Nonsense   last sure looks like a gimme in last (4 weeks off....slightly over his head..... low % jock up) to come back in short rest (good history with short rest) fit and ready with a better jock and go go go

1  Colousoftheglen    appreciates the Hollywood AW......Gutierrez knows this horse has consistency in 2012.......seems best off of it and that looks like a good position in this affair

2  Hammurabi   blinkers on strongly suggests Carava and company want the front end here.....wire to wire attempt likely with a good speed rider up


race 2    average clarity

2  Tates Humor   Harty is not the best of 1st start conditioners but the works and the good post are too hard to ignore here

3  Amarish   decent drills for this Bonde 1ster who will most likely show plenty of early gas if of course he breaks well

4  Cinco De Mario    3 straight gate works say this 1st timer is meant and ready.......and talk about  3 guys on top of the world in Reddam. O'Neill, and Gutierrez

1  Manewal   consistently showing works that are decent....and like our 3rd choice finished his work regiment with 3 straight gate drills


race 3    average clarity

1  Anna You're Up   won lone lifetime grass race by over 2L despite being wide.....also.....owns 3 wins and a 2nd in 5 starts since the blinkers were added

5  Mia Isabel    has faced better in last 2 races.......sure like the 9 lbs off with the switch to the apprentice E Flores.......should fit versus these

3  Warren's Venedalucy   just claimed by Deleon and he got this filly to work a monster 4F bullet drill.......might have the trump card for this youngster......we shall see


race 4    average clarity

4  Street Rocket   both lifetime races at Hol stand out and they are both a little hidden by semi-bad trips....and then there is that ever dangerous drop out of MSW racing

5  Midnight Con   on the improve and now gets to run at Hol where he fired his lifetime best in his only race on it's synthetic surface

10  Warrior's Ridge   not the stoutest of trainers with 1sters but this 1st time starter is showing strong drills.......both in endurance and speed

1  Just Tripping   bad trip in last (with 1st time blinkers) hides an effort that fits at today's level of racing.......and Hess is off to a good start at the Hol meeting


race 5    below average clarity

4  Buffalo Billy   yet to see his overseas ability......3rd USA start......seems like now or never for his trainer to get the same effort out of him as he showed in Ireland.......excellent turf jock up

9  The Unusual One    the 1 and the 9 will both be going after the lead.......9 can chase but he tends to hang when he does...........hmmmm

1  Reach A Decision    very expensive claim for for the likes of A Marquez......good post for successful apprentice to get a jump on the field.....obvious wire to wire attempt

11  Kingpin Ryno    good grass horse.....good trainer.....decent jockey......but bad post.....would be top pick if he had post 1, 2, or 3


race 6    slightly above average clarity

2  Industry Leader   best 2 lifetime races ( by far) are the 2 times this late running colt ran at today's 7F distance.....and very sharp in the a.m. of late....should be flying late

4  John Scott   last was par like.......and it was off a 2 1/2 year layoff.....and 2nd career start (in 2009) was a big move logically we can expect more today

7  Sequoia Warrior   2 nice races since America's best trainer, Bob Baffert took over the training duties.....seemingly won with something left in the tank in last......shot for lifetime best today

6 Cyclometer   done little wrong in 4 lifetime starts........1st ever on the AW is a question mark


race 7    average clarity

5  Tiz A Daisy   poor start in MSW debut last and then showed that she is a runner from there.....and M Jones is much more dangerous with 2nd time starters

7  Dancingtothestars   exits a key race albeit way back in Dec of 2010.......rather sure this laid up runner is meant and ready......4 straight 6F works for the likes of Doug O'Neill to finish off her work regiment suggests he has this filly very fit

4  This Means War   bet hard and ran well.......and works are decent since.....would have rated higher if it wasn't for the fact this filly was very pointed to be ready for the special day for Cal-breds on 28 April...still very very dangerous.....maybe just a little over-bet

1  Sea John's Spirit   dueled on a dull rail in last and tired like most would.....strong hidden effort......rail sure looked good last night

Long-shot Possibilities:   10  Tiz Final   trainer stepped up seemingly out of nowhere in last and she knew what she was doing.....way better final time and lookout here with another step up........also a bullet 3F drill.....can be prominent from the get go at a price


race 8    average clarity

1  Compari   4 for 7 at the distance on the turf.....good post.....good rider......good trainer......and a much improved recent work....should get a nice ground saving trip

3  Calimonco   best ever 2 back.......bad trip in last on "gd" turf at GG...toss it out.....good post and like our top pick solid history at 1 mile on the sod

10  Mr. Commons   best turf animal in the field but draws a difficult post at 1 mile on the grass at Hol......needs a clever trip......a ton if he gets it

8  Mobilized   on the improve by leaps and bounds in 2012........lifetime best in last....doubt knocked him out because he just worked an impressive bullet 5/8ths drill

Long-shot Possibilities:   2  Wilkinson   red hot turf conditioner picks up a new horse....seems best on firm turf.....welcome to sunny California where forest fires and earthquakes are more likely than rain


race 9    average clarity

5  Private Bounty   1st off of the claim and 1st time blinkers in latest.....responded with a big effort where he was wide on an inside day.....easy hand ride late stretch.....good chance something left in the tank for today

3  Peacenik   claim back by Dollase is a positive.....very fast for class time in last.....but.......careful because he appears to be a lead type only and might not get the front

1  Adam Suances    good win despite being blocked in latest......smartly steps up a notch....likes the Hol AW and today's distance

9  Thomas Baines   trainer is in drop mode to get a few needed wins.....seems much better on the AW than the turf

13  Sir Hamilton   a lot like our 2nd pick.......seemingly needs the lead to win........seems like a 50/50 chance he will get it

6  Afleet Deal   Mikus is very dangerous 1st out after a claim and very dangerous when she teams up with Krigger
