Hollywood for Friday 17 May 2013


Bad news: Not an easy card today. Good news: Saturday's card looks great and it will be on line no later than 5 a.m. Pacific time on Saturday morning.


race 1    average clarity

2  Briteness  very solid run in last on the grass and it is hidden by a poor trip.......only race on the AW (and it was it Hollywood) was dull......but this filly deserves another chance as most horses that handle the turf run well on the Hol AW

4  Night Dance   Gomez/Mitchell have won 3 of their last 5 together........both races for this filly fit since Mitchell claimed her.........and the recent drills are improved.......same or better seems likely here

3  Swingaway   tossed a clunker in last on the first time drop into claiming at 1 t0 1.......claimed by Glatt and if he can get her to rebound she will fit as well as anyone in here......Glatt has been hot lately


race 2    average clarity

6  Warren's Morgan   better than par for the filly 8K level in last two which were run  on the SA conventional dirt course........should take this race if this filly can repeat the effort on the Hollywood AW which she has handled in the past......3 reassuring 5F drills hint she has held form

2  Pincelada   ran over her head in first two races with her new those two races might have been tune-ups to substantially drop and go this afternoon.......cut back in distance sure looks like a plus

4  Michailasheartlite   consistent sort but still needs slightly better than her last few.........might get it because she seems to do some of her better running at today's abbreviated 5 1/2F sprint distance

3  Cha Da Boom


race 3    slightly below average clarity

2  Topic   last two at GG and SA on the grass fit OK here but what we want is her run 3 back which was on the Hol turf......and that effort is somewhat hidden by a very wide trip

3  Scooter Bird   toss out dull number in shot to produce a good fig sitting too far off of a lackluster pace.......race 2 back with a decent pace up front fits

6  Twisted Purpose   last sure was run as if it was nothing more than a tune-up to leg up and be at full throttle 2nd time on the grass

8  Dance Team


race 4    average clarity

5  Captain Corrigan   wide trips in last two races or would have scored in both of them.....trainer has been on fire.......rider has a better post to work with and he had a big week last week

7  Tenkiller Kid   trainer/rider have been one of the hottest rider/trainer combos over a prolonged period of time in many a moon in the S Cal racing circuit.......and Hollendorfer is stout with runners dropping out of MSW racing for the 1st time

1  Neil Healy   two leg me up grass sprints to be fit for first ever at a route of ground on the AW......drops to the price the horse went at sale in May of last year.......Walsh historically is good sprint to route with a given horse

3  Brannaman

Long-shot possibilities:   2  Affirmed Arch   not much on the conventional dirt at like a vastly different much improved runner on the Hollywood AW


race 5    slightly below average clarity

1  Et Tu Walker   impressed 1st ever on the grass in last and it was at today's same level......good sign this O'Neill runner is stepping up multiple claiming levels.....must be feeling good......goes from difficult 11 post (bad history out of the turf sprint chute with posts 9 or greater) to a decent 1 post

4  Luckarack   rebounded nicely in last in a race on the Hol synthetic......and 2 for 2 on the grass at today's distance......very dangerous fellow if this Moger runner is coming around

2  Canonize   Ellis runner has obviously slipped some but he has had enough time off to recover to possibly put in a rebound......or it might be a "claim me please" situation

3  Thinking Of Girls


race 6    average clarity

4  Rousing Sermon   last fits at today's tougher level and the works since his winning last suggest he is moving forward today

1  Congenial   solid since Cody Autrey took over and put the blinkers on.....only has one other seemingly somewhat suspect speed horse to put away in the 5 horse .....and this gelding has a good speed rider in Maldonado aboard

9  Soul Candy   trained great prior to his strong run in last for his new trainer D'Amato and continues to work as if the trainer has the trump card for this gelding who owns some solid and hidden back numbers

8  Dreamy Kid


race 7    average clarity

2  Macha   consistent sort since switching to route racing........nice move forward in last......blinkers on for today and the recent bullet 5/8ths drill for this Hollendorfer charge hint another forward move is about to occur

3  Bonnie Lesley   trainer is awakening and we get a rider upgrade to Talamo who also is back on his game after a slow start to the for the horse she only needs a small move in the right direction and seemingly will get it with the trainer and rider both doing well of late

4  Sweet Red Cat   strong late runner fits with Garrett Gomez in a big way.......filly can roar on by them all if she gets a realistic pace up front


race 8    average clarity

6  California Chrome   broke slow and ran wide in a solid adjusted for trouble fig in MSW debut......easily the one to overcome if this baby learned from the experience and he gets a better trip from his rider

1  Hollywood Groom   works at GG are rather good and this colt's trainer is quite good with MSW runners......and he has managed to hit the board with 2 of his last 3 MSW 1sters

3  Better Bet   Harrington colt ran well enough in his MSW debut to be a factor in his 2nd lifetime race if he somewhat logically builds upon the effort

5  Win Wish

10  Awesome T

9  Charisma Code
