Hollywood for Saturday 18 May 2013


Good looking card today!

Best of luck as always!


race 1    slightly below average clarity

5  Hard Play   bet hard in MSW debut back in Jan. and caught an off track and ran poorly......easy to ignore the effort.........trained well prior to his debut at SA and he is training even better this time around on the Hol AW.......likely to make amends today

6  Far Rockaway   needs to show a little more even with the small drop in class.......sure is working better with the switch in surfaces to the Hollywood AW and/or the blinkers added......decent shot to show best ever today

3  Brother Greg   managed to move forward in 2nd lifetime start......will need to do the same today........Kruljac runners have been firing on all cylinders


race 2    slightly above average clarity

4  Derringer   very capable of cutting some sizzling fractions.........sure looks loose here with a good shot to wire the field.........continues to train as if Sadler made an awfully good claim 4 races back

3  Noble Exchange   five year old has settled down nicely since being gelded two races back.....and he might be feeling good as this is the first time ever he has been able to run off of relatively short rest

1  Talk of the Town   broke maiden at 1st asking overcoming a bad trip in only a five furlong race.......broke slow and ran wide and still won going away.......needs a little more and a clean trip and he can fight for the right to the circle of joy here

7  Cunning Ride


race 3    slightly above average clarity

4  My Cinsation   2 for 2 on the green carpet with both wins coming in turf sprints at SA.......and 2 bullet works since her last including one on the turf at Hollywood......has won on the lead and stalking the lead.......should be solid once again today

7  Wednesday   improving filly also is working sharply and gets Bejarano back aboard who won by a wide margin the only time he was aboard in a race run 2 races back

1  Corlett Drive   definitely on the right end of the learning curve and will need to meet another challenge today as this is her 1st ever on the sod.......grass pedigree is so so but Sadler is quite good with judging visually which horses might handle the grass (i.e. a large hoof usually is good for the grass)

8  Darling Dodie


race 4    slightly above average clarity

1  Gifting   3 to 5 Baffert runner earned a sizable adjusted for trouble fig in MSW debut last with a trip from you know where........nine lengths of trouble in my trip log.......likely to be a ton with a clean trip today

5  Tizhardtoget   exits a very fast heat with not the best of trips where being beat by 15L wasn't that bad.......rider upgrade today........and the trainer is much better with 2nd time starters

3  Ridingwiththedevil   par like effort in last her 3rd lifetime start.......par is good but will need more today if our top pick shows the same energy as before and gets a better trip.......Glatt has been rather hot to start the meet so this filly might just show her best today in her 1st ever on a synthetic surface


race 5    average clarity

1  Top Kisser   keeps getting better with each lifetime start.......unreal jockey/trainer combo these days.......good post and a smooth running style on or near the front end.....that'll do

2  Sugarinthemorning   ran 2nd to a stout winner in this race last year and did it off of a 7F AW race........7 1/2 furlong AW race in last.......should be all set to compete for the top prize

3  Unusual Hottie   won her last (sprinting on the grass) running for the 1st time for Jeff Mullins......filly sure seems to like today's 1 mile distance on the grass (5  2 2 1) with 4 of those races on the Hollywood sod

7  Butterfly Beach


race 6    slightly above average clarity

2  Salty Forecast   strong run off of the layoff winning an abbreviated sprint of 5F in a good time/fig for the level......should be tough here if she is up to handling another furlong and she handles her 1st ever on the Cushion track

4  Spring Gal   woke up quite a bit in last in a route grass race......dueled in surprisingly fast pace and rightfully tired versus better......nice 4F drill on the Hol AW since.......believe she legged up on the grass and she is feeling quite good

5  Selleria   layoff last sure seems to be the tune-up and a 1st time blinkers test drive safely placed in a non-claiming event......full throttle today

1  Rock U Up


race 7    slightly above average clarity

1  Yes It's Snowing   0 for 2 on the sod but actually ran better on the turf than the dirt in the time period when he was running on the grass.....much more prolific horse these days on the the grass might actually be a plus....we shall see

2  Mr. Bossy Pants    ultra consistent sort and the 7 year old has a nice running style......highly likely to fire a nice effort once again

5  Blue Jay Attack   dislikes the SA hill turf course........likes the 6F Hollywood grass course and it showed in her last managing 2nd despite a bad trip........Bejarano rides again and will be out to make amends

3  Classic Bobby


race 8    average clarity

7  Storm Castle   laid up Puype MSW drop down sure is training as if he is meant and ready in for a tag........finished off a prolonged work series with 5 tightly spaced drills with the last work being a bullet

5  Sports Report   3 of 5 lifetime races seemingly fit well here including his maiden debut which was run on the Hol AW.....and the race is hidden.....broke slow and then ran on a dull inside

3  Rocky Barboa   nice sire Rocky Bar is off to a good start.......and this baby of his is working as if he might be ready to roll at 1st asking.....trains for Krujac as if he owns some early gas......and has a low % jock up but not when he rides speed types

11  Dramatic Allan


race 9    slightly below average clarity

1  Insideondoutside   sure seems like a good spot to be a late runner which this gelding happens to be.....good post and 1 for 1 on the Hollywood AW

4  Rock Me Baby   done nothing wrong in 5 lifetime sprint starts two of which were on the grass.....1st long but bred very well to appreciate the 1 mile distance.......needs to avoid a suicidal speed duel.....four year old has shown he can rate......that can come in handy here

3  Very Elusice    Euro invader was steadily improving until he fell off in his latest which was in as if he might be ready to roll in his return to the race wars.......and will most likely be an off pace runner which seemingly is a good thing here

7  Kid Dreams


race 10    average clarity

4  Lady Of Fifty   best ever was the only time this Hollendorfer runner ran on the Hol since Feb but sure seems pointed to today's race with a very impressive set of drills including a powerful 7F work under 1:26 flat to finish off her a.m. work

2  I Dazzle   just fired lifetime best (in a grass race) 1st time in the Sadler Sadler's no. 3 horse this gal has never run on an AW surface but she sure has always trained well on the Hollywood main track

1  Lady Aspen


race 11    average clarity

6  Maddog Maddie   overdo drop......very strong recent drill......trainer has been firing on all cylinders........decent shot at the circle of joy this afternoon

3  Goodtobewold   good move forward in 2nd lifetime start......and the drill since is the best she has ever shown......seems very likely to move forward again today

12  Speedy Vixen   improving sort just ran two consecutive maiden turf races that are much better than appear in print......drops way down......would have rated higher if he hadn't drawn such a difficult post especially for a jock looking for his 1st win at the new meeting

9  Only Josie Knows

11  Manta

2  Citizen Jane
