Hollywood for Sunday 3 June 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

1  Warren's Morgan   very consistent sort gets Bejarano who is wining at a very high rate for Gutierrez.....improved recent work......seems poised for a strong run

4  One Magical Girl   likes the AW........better since the blinkers were put on.......and Sadler steps up suggesting the filly is feeling well

2  Backwoods Belle   best speed and Joe T aboard.....a dangerous combination


race 2    slightly above average clarity

1  Perpetua   3 straight bad trips in her 3 lifetime races hides her ability......positive jock change for today for her 1st ever in a maiden claimer

6  Sudden Sunday   debut was fairly decent.......2nd time starter takes a small drop in maiden claiming and adds blinkers........might show better speed and that is obviously a good thing in a 5F affair

4  Kissin In The Dark   was training great for 2nd lifetime start and only ran so so at a hot 3 to 1.....continues to work like a runner.......just needs to do it in the p.m. when it counts

3  Tribal Chatter   not much in mc debut last March......but has 3 solid foundation building 6F drills under her belt since.....should can charging late


race 3    slightly above average clarity

1  Obviously   improving with every U S of A start.....and gets a jock upgrade

2  Majestic City   very special 2 year old last year.....very quick early when running in sprints......Miller is good with fresh speed.....1st on the sod but his turf pedigree is fine

3  Rauschenberg   3 for 4 on the Hol turf course......0 for 10 elsewhere on the sod....2 for 2 on the Hol 6F turf course....will be flying late


race 4    average clarity

4  Solar Rocket   bombed out on the turf in last.......has done everything right on main track surfaces including Hollywood's

6  Gallant Gent   toss out last....acted up badly at the look at his race 2 back where he had a strong win in a fairly fast heat.......running wide near a good pace

5  Circle Drive   very sharp drills following 2 grass races (the turf seems to have legged up this gelding quite a bit).......late runner seemingly gets the pace he needs to flatter his late kick


race 5    average clarity

3  Stratify   par like effort in last and seems poised for a forward run......good pedigree to appreciate the 1 1/4 miles and the turf....trainer is due to start winning a few

4  Yomybato   totally toss last as the rider lost the irons far too long at the higher win % jock today........strong grass race 2 back........bit concerned about the longer distance or would have been my top pick-a-roo

7  God Of War   might have needed last his 1st run ever in the good old U S of A......if so fits fine here.....bred to run all day long

5  Swift Eagle   bad trip in last hides his ability which fits at this level.......but I am not to nuts about his pedigree to get the distance of 1 1/4 miles


race 6    slightly below average clarity

2  E Z Led   scratched yesterday in a 25K claimer to run here.....have to like the fact the trainer (who is somewhat hot of late) elected to run at 32K versus tougher....very good chance Bejarano can get a nice stalking position saving plenty of  ground....that's a dangerous scenario

6  Hurricane Lake   takes a logical drop of a couple of notches to 32K where V Garcia snatched this horse at the claiming box back in Dec of 2011.....sure has been facing better

7  Temerity   I believe (about 60/40) that Ellis and/or Talamo will elect to sit behind the 1 horse and avoid a suicidal speed duel.....decent chance to win this if they do

4  Highway Bandit    nowheresville in 2 starts off of the layoff....but careful as he just popped a 5/8ths bullet drill on the Hollywood AW.....mega rebound city?


race 7    slightly above average clarity

3  He's Very Rare   seemingly never better.......very solid effort both final time wise and pace wise in last at 1 1/16 on the turf........solid drill since........ and 1 /16th less seems like a good thing

6  The Unusual One   2nd straight race in a row where I think Talamo should sit just off of it or he might pay a price pace wise.....two straight solid races under the guidance of his new conditioner Richard Baltas

7  Valley Cat   always seems to fire solid races when Bejarano rides....and he is back aboard this afternoon


race 8    average clarity

3  Holy Candy   very strong better than appear route races in 3 of 4 attempts going two turns......passed on the Ky Derby so he should be fresh and very ready here

5  Unusual Heatwave (tie for 2nd choice)   5, 7, 4 all seem basically the same.....strong for the level late runners training well.....they should come flying late unless the pace and/or their position in the race compromises their chances

7  Liason (tie for 2nd choice)

4  Blingo (tie for 2nd choice)


race 9    average clarity

6  Wild Truffles    very solid 1st ever on the grass considering she had been absent from the scene since October........nice reassuring work since.....better seems likely.....and better with an OK trip will be tough here

7  Revered   good return to the race wars in latest which is somewhat hidden by a bad trip.......1st on the sod but I sure like her pedigree for it.....Ellis is having a good Hollywood meet

5  Pure Smiles   1st timer had some nice tightly spaced shorter drills followed by some slow but endurance building 6F works....should be fit.......1/2 sister to outstanding Bonde sprinter Smiling Tiger.....turf pedigree is up to snuff

2  Autumn View   not much last winter......but sure is working like a different animal under the guidance of her new trainer

9  Tap Tap Ur It    broke slightly tardy and lugged out on the turn and still only beat by 6......blinkers on to help focus and hold the turn.........owns fairly good grass breeding

1  Candy Trophy   not bet at all in 2 lifetime starts.......believe Sadler is just trying the grass before he puts this filly up for sale in a mc claimer....does have a decent grass pedigree
