Hollywood for Friday night 13 July 2012


Average looking card tonight. Good Luck!


race 1    average clarity

3  Belo Purse    race 2 back is solid and it was 7 furlongs to 6 furlongs off of short rest......7 furlongs to 6 furlongs off of short rest once again today

5  Classical Slew   not exactly doing great but who is in this unique condition claimer for S Cal racing.....maybe new trainer and/or new rider can get this gelding to make a rebound of sorts......race two back is OK.....race three back is solid versus these

4  Lone Justice    woke up in latest 2nd out after a long layoff.......seemingly owns the best early speed in the race with the only other speed horse being our 2nd pick


race 2    average clarity

6  Hyena    Miller is quite good with maiden claiming 1st timers.......4 straight 5F drills to finish off the work regiment for this 2 year old filly is very impressive.......sure seems very meant and ready to roll

1  Half Moon Gambler   scenario here is:   debut was only a tune-up for this O'Neill charge as she went off at odds of 10 to 1 in a 7 horse field with a low % jock we get a vastly improved recent drill and Bejarano is named.....conclusion:  plenty more filly tonight in 2nd lifetime start

7  Snackable   obviously owns good early speed just missing in her lone start which was a 2F affair run at GG in April......good speed rider up for 1st time under the conditioning of Peter Miller

3  Pursuitofparadise   improving with every start......bit concerned about this being the 3rd race within 22 days for this 2 year filly......fits OK if she can handle the work load


race 3    slightly below average clarity

5  Above Par   consistent late runner catches a race that seemingly sets up for a anything motoring late.......1st on the grass but bred to be better on it.....sure seems like a smart move off of the claim by Fanning

2  You Little Devil   4 year old has broken slow from the gate in all 6 lifetime least in his last (1st time with Puglisi) he was only tardy 2L from the gate......but his tardiness is a good fit here in that the race appears set for a mid pack or late runner......his turf breeding is a tough call

4  Secret Spy   3 of his last 4 main track races fit fine but his turf breeding could be better......I'd rate it a small negative


race 4    average clarity

1  Secret Songbird   good work foundation put into this laid up filly whose problem was endurance and not speed when last seen last Fall.......1st time under the tutelage of Harrington who is good with horses coming off of long layoffs.....should be a nice price

10  Zenett   been a money eater but recent bullet drill and blinkers on hint she is sharper with the equipment change.....also her route run in last should help her endurance come crunch time

2  Nifty Dream   likes time between races and Fanning shows patience and gives it to her........been training awfully well for the last 2 months

3  Dark Gambler   ran evenly in maiden claiming debut last..........can build upon the effort and gets a positive rider switch


race 5    average clarity

4  Master Chef    Glatt may have snatched this gelding at the claiming box at a very good time because the horse improved greatly 1st time with the blinkers on in his last.......and he sure worked super for Glatt since.........same or more seems likely this evening

2  Floating Feather   wanted no part of 7 1/2 furlongs in last.......loves 6 furlongs (10 5 3 0) on the main track........bullet 4F drill just 6 days ago might have very sharp

3  Daylight Magic   done little wrong in 3 lifetime starts.........jock upgrade to the meets top gun........1st time ever that the horse gets to run off of relatively short rest........solid reassuring 6F work just 1 week ago


race 6    average clarity

6  Speedy Vixen   solid improvement in 3rd lifetime start both in final time and pace......very little speed in this race so this filly has a good shot to be on or near the lead and that is somewhat hidden

8  Malibu Love   solid history since the blinkers were put on......only race at today's seldom run distance of 7 1/2 furlongs was his best of 4 races without 1st time blinkers for a 7 1/2 affair seems like a good thing

4  Chocolate Delight    on the improvement with every start and now we get a very significant jockey upgrade......lookout if she improves again with a much better rider aboard

7  Tap Tap Ur It   clunker in last doesn't do the trick here.......race 2 back fits.....effort displayed (bad trip) 3 back her MSW debut would make her the one to beat .......drops from MSW to the bottom mc level.....what will we get today......toss a coin


race 7    slightly above average clarity

3  Donner Wasser    has won this condition at 1 mile on the grass (3 for 6 in the win column......0 for 7 at other turf distances).........Micthell is fairly solid wheeling a horse back in short rest........6 days since last sure qualifies for short rest

2 Running Isabella   M Smith's only mount of the night and he sure looks loose on the here.......Smith has had a dismal Hollywood by his standards but he still should be awfully tough on the front in a two turn grass race

8  Unusual Hottie   responds well to ample time between races and gets set of preparatory drills......decent chance to get a nice chase position behind our 2nd pick.......and we get a jockey upgrade.....plenty to like

7  Miss Speed Dialing   very strong late runner sat too far off a slow pace in last and still managed to close some.........won her previous start with a very strong late stretch run


race 8    average clarity

11  Tiz A Brite Miss    fell off in last but toss it out as this filly acted up at the gate....race 2 back is very solid here both in early pace and final time.....not afraid of the 11 post as this filly usually pops very fast 1st quarters in her races

7  Warren's Passion   bad trip in last somewhat hides a solid forward 5/8ths work since.........ran best ever was 3rd lifetime start so 3rd out after the layoff seems like a good thing

6  Color Girl   works seem good enough for a bottom level 1st timer.......and Bejarano accepts the mount for O'Neill

9  Salon Blonde   1st time M Jones is a very dangerous thing.....dangerous price shot

5  Stupendous Princess

12  Rock U Up
