Hollywood for Sunday 28 April 2013


O.K. card to finish the first week of racing at Betfair Hollywood Park.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

2  Bobby Handy   GG Steve Sherman shipper is a different much improved runner since the addition of Lasix  (5 3 2 0).......Tamalo should get a nice ground saving stalk position behind a suspect leader

4  Big Note    turf sprint efforts/figs sure fit well is a matter of running two turns and handling the Cushion track.......should be loose here which is often a plus for a sprinter attempting a route of ground for the 1st time

5  Format V.    lifetime sprinter tries long.......he sure is in good form.......retains Bejarano.......I have no clue if he will handle a route but he sure fits in the hunt for the circle of joy if he does


race 2    average clarity

4  Full's Figurehead   big effort off of a 6 month layoff in 2012 for Powell.......1st time for Aguirre this afternoon who is better with laid up horses than Powell.....and the works suggest this filly is ready

1  U R My Candy Girl   nice move forward in 2nd lifetime start......and since the race this Puype runner has hit the track every 6 or 7 days since 23 Feb with some solid drills......that and the drop in claiming says the trainer means business here

5  Amulay   after 3 green poor trips this filly finally had a smooth trip but appeared to dislike the extra furlong......back to 6 furlongs today and if she puts in the same effort as she did in her other 2 6F races (and gets a good trip) lookout

2  Tribal Spy


race 3    average clarity

3  Tiz Snazzy     tossed a clunker in latest but if this V. Garcia runner rebounds to anyone one of his previous 4 of 5 races he sure would be the one to overcome here

1  Penny Maker   on the improve with every start and it has been reflected in the odds he has gone off (36-15-8-7-2 to 1) since his last suggest another move in the right direction will occur which will be necessary in all likelihood to handle the significantly higher level for today

4  Arial Artist    grass runner has something to prove on the AW but he was just claimed.......gelded.......and owns some solid works under the guidance of his new trainer Paul Aguirre


race 4    average clarity

3  Power Foot   colt owns some powerful grass efforts/numbers including his last......trouble is he seems to like to run somewhat wide...... so.......I sure like the fact he is in a 7 horse field instead of the 9 to 14 horses he has faced in his last 6 races

Barocci   28 to 1 for a 1st ever laid up invading from N.Y. horse in the Sadler barn suggests the race was needed and that much more will occur this afternoon.....ran 2 strong races at today's level at the prestigious Saratoga meeting last summer

2  American Blend    solid 1st at a route in last.......toss out only grass race as it was this gelding's MSW debut and he most likely was injured in the race because he needed 7 months to get back to the has tossed 6 grass winners from 7 starters.......yikes........this fellow might make it 7 for 7

4  Dreamcatcher


race 5    average clarity

5  Atticus Jack    barn is getting tired of not getting to the winners circle with this horse who has yet to win since they took him for 62,500 last they take a significant drop in claiming.....AW is fine.....2 for 4 on it......3 for 16 on the turf

2  Iron Joe T     faced significantly tougher on the step up in claiming in latest.....back where belongs.......Bhp AW proven and 7F seemingly will be a good fit

7  Charlie'sboywins    6 year old gelding runs well fresh.......runs best at the distance of 7F........and runs best on the AW at Hollywood (11 3 2 2 ) ...... (10 0 1 0) on other surfaces

3  Plenny Of Henny


race 6    average clarity

7  Just Fishin   best efforts for this Greely runner are off of 4 or 5 weeks between starts and those efforts fit well here........5 weeks since her latest

8  Unbridled Giant   on the improve with every start and the last effort is somewhat hidden........broke tardy 2, rank 2. and blocked 2 in the stretch in his1st ever running trainer Baffert most likely will get the kinks out for his 2nd lifetime grass route

6  Cacau   decent shot to get loose here and if he does shake free he...........might.............go.............all.............the.............way

11  Corinthian's Song


race 7    average clarity

3  Blushing Agent    conventional dirt races sure fit well will his 1st ever on the AW also fit?..........Salder got a nice 1st ever on the Hol AW drill into him  and it sure seems decent......and this filly gets 1st time Bejarano who is awfully hot these days riding Sadler horses

6  Miss American Pie   best ever that fits here was on the Bhp synthetic winning her maiden debut by a dozen......likely to welcome a return to it's surface today

5  Home Journey   speed horse who seemingly gets a good speed spot.......very dangerous if he can come close to matching either of his efforts run in the fall


race 8    average clarity

4  Moone's My Name    impressive 1st ever in the USA in last.........seems quite formidable with a logical forward move today for John Sadler

8  Halo Dolly    likes turf rated firm best and hasn't been very lucky catching good or yielding turf 4 of her last 5 grass races......also she had a bad trip in last.....and previously to that ran 2nd versus the boys

2  Nobilis   multiple Graded placed runner in France obviously fits......but........she still has something to prove in 1 mile grass affairs as her prowess has been in races 1 1/4 or greater

1  Purim Dancer

Long-shot possibilities:   7  Little Emily    last was better than it appears and it was run off of a layoff......good works early gas in the race......jock upgrade and the jock is an excellent speed rider.....should be the highest price on the board and will be dangerous if she is viewed as the weak horse not to worry about on the lead


race 9    slightly below average clarity

11  Caveman Keno   home-bred looked as if he was out for air in his MSW debut at SA.......doubt he will be today in his 2nd lifetime start in this bottom level maiden claimer.....gets to run at the track he has trained very well at especially considering the level of racing

3  Majestic Keno   maiden debut race which was 11 months ago at Hol is better than appears in print.......V Garcia runner sure has woken up in the a.m. seemingly out of nowhere

5  Warren's Wesley   on the correct end of the learning curve and that is a very dangerous thing these days when the conditioner is Jorge Gutierrez.....that Bejarano guy doesn't hurt either

14  Jaco Red    ran his best ever in 3rd lifetime start......3rd after the layoff today and drops out of MSW racing

6  I'll Run The Show

16  Unusual Flash
