Hollywood for Sunday 15 July 2012


My apologies for only having comments on the first three choices but I am away from home and my Internet access isn't what I was told it would be. Putting this online took forever.

Del Mar starts Wednesday!!!!!!!



race 1    average clarity

7  Changethechannel    very strong set of drills for the likes of McCarthy who usually doesn't get his younster's so cranked up......they most often need a race or two........ but......... this time appears to be an exception

3  Chloe   top notch trainer Marty Jones picks up a new horse that his been away since last year.........hard to tell if he has her ready to roll but she sure fits here if she is

2  Slendiferous Moon    Sadler 1st timer sure looks ready off of solid a.m. work

5  Creditcardroulette


race 2    slightly below average clarity

1  Never Say Know   plenty of foundation in his workouts suggest this 1ster should finish well especially in a cheap maiden 2 year old claimer.......Belvoir has a very strong history with mc 1sters

6  Taylor's Journey   improving greatly with every more similar move forward (and most likely a more difficult one) puts him in the winners circle with of course a decent trip

7  Romar Success   low % trainer with 1st timers but this 2 year old 1st timer sure is training well enough to be ready to roll in his lifetime debut

3  Tiz A Minister


race  3    above average clarity

4  Dhaamer   easily the best here even with his "B" game.....runs all day long so 1 1/2 miles is a big big plus

3  Juniper Pass   good improvement in last and will need another move forward today most likely.......blinkers on in hopes of getting that move in the right direction


race 4    slightly below average clarity

2  After Later   trainer has done wonders with his only runner this lookout here off of the claim and significant step higher.....3 nice little drills......seemingly set for much better today

6  Winter Blossom   speed of the speed here has a shot to go gate to wire

4  Woodman's Lass   great meet for the team of Aguirre/Puglisi (won again yesterday at a nice price as our 3rd pick) and they have another well placed runner in this spot

5  Kiss My Swiss


race 5    slightly below average clarity

3  Red Intrigue   1st on the sod but bred OK for it......... just keeps getting better.........and better..........and better...........and so does this runner's jockey Edwin Maldonado

4  Three Cuties   turf sprint races fit at this she needs to run the same at a route on the grass.......pedigree is OK for it ......running lines suggest she might not like it......50/50 chance it seems she handles a route

7  Around The Twig   last looks like the gimme to.......... go go go 2nd run after a long hiatus from the races

5  Smil'n From Above

Possible Long-shot:   6  Warren's Lover   ( 10 to 1 or greater)


race 6    slightly above average clarity

7  Sequoia Warrior   all 3 races since Bob Baffert took over the training responsibilities of this colt fit here and 2 of those races are quite stout 

3  Stoneside   I thought this gelding would like a return to a sprint on the AW in last and I was correct in my assessment........repeat of last puts him in the hunt for a win once again.....7F looks like a good fit

1  Nextdoorneighboor   just snatched at the claiming box........ andBaffert has won 4 of his last 7 1st out after a the fact he puts this runner back in a 7F sprint......good history for the gelding at the distance

5  First Strike


race 7    average clarity

8  Depth   likes the Hollywood AW......likes 7F.....just ran best ever in his layoff last almost winning despite a slow start and a wide trip.......2nd out after a layoff is usually a good thing

3  El Tango    very dangerous runner if his layoff last was needed.........races run last winter fit solidly......trainer has had a better Hol meeting than his record would indicate

2  What A Rush   Mitchell charge fits well at this level but has tended to flatten out at today's 7F distance.....use of light weight apprentice might help here

1  Last Memories


race 8    slightly above average clarity

3  Tanjero   poor trip in mc debut.........broke 3 slow and then ran on a dull rail........deservedly steps up.....OK grass pedigree

7  Montego Bay   early pace for this gelding seems to be improving with every start and that sure look like a good thing in this race void of much early gas......both route turf races are better than they appear in print

5  Silver Bidder   not much in MSW debut but impressive work tab since........and Bejarano accepts the mount......much more likely today

4  Berlusconi


race 9    average clarity

3  Top Debutante   race seemingly sets for her off pace style .......only mount of the day for an accomplished jock who is usually a good sign he has a live mount

5  Candera   laid up Baffert alw runners are usually ready to roll fresh off of the bench.........if this filly is she has a nice opportunity to sit in a good stalking position being a lively pace

6  Moonstruck Maya   exits a fast heat with a fairly easy average paced lead in last....good shot she feels awfully good coming off such a stress-less effort


race 10  slightly above average clarity

12  Coranto   quite the mc debut.....broke about 10 lengths slow out of the gate and only lost by 4........clean break and the same effort/energy wins this

14  Visionary Man   solid race in latest which was at today's same level and distance........and Bejarano sticks around who has won his last 6 of 14 mounts for Eurton over the last couple of months

1  Temple Of Gold   bad trip in mc debut.....race is better than appears on paper......Mitchell can be very dangerous with 2nd time starters

3  Fearsome Charisma

4  Salty Robin

8  Destino
