Hollywood for Sunday 19 May 2013


O.K card this afternoon after a wide open 1st race.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    below average clarity  (mostly because of no toss outs in the field)

6  Privivaled   vastly improved 1st after the claim by Heap in last and it is hidden by a bad since the race way back in November but shows up with Bejarano aboard......hints that he is ready fresh

4  Flower Power   speed type was claimed by O'Neill in last.....and I sure like that he puts Maldonado on the horse who often moves up these cheap claiming speed types with his aggressive style of riding

3  Guidopanzini   another just claimed.......and a sharp drill put in by Glatt hints he might have the trump card for this gelding.......jock upgrade.....needs a rebound of sorts and might get one

1  Scofield Barracks


race 2    average clarity

6  Belle De Lune   finally got her 1st win in the good old U S of A......stellar work series since not missing a beat in the a.m. over the last 8 weeks.......believe she is very pointed to this race her 1st around 2 turns in 2013

1  Byrony   been facing better with limited wins since July of last up for sale today for $62.5K to face easier and get to that magical circle of joy

3  Double Ante   solid win going away in the stretch 2 races back......went for the big time in last.....back to reality here......and back to Espinoza who owns both lifetime wins on this filly

7  The Only Key


race 3    above average clarity

5  Gentlemen Pete   mega forward move in last and it is somewhat hidden by a very wide ever on the main track is his lone effort on the Hollywood AW and also is hidden by a bad trip......and look who is aboard today on the drop into maiden claiming......Bejarano

2  Surf N Ski   solid move forward in his 1st on the Hol main track and with a switch to a more accomplished drill since.....same or better today

3  Sinfully   broke slow and ran wide in maiden debut with little support at the windows......trainer has been firing with most of his stock.....seems like a dangerous 2nd time starter

1  Our Lucky Son


race 4    average clarity

3  Proud Buck   wide trip in last hides a move forward and it was her 1st on the AW......1st long and her running lines and her pedigree suggest she will appreciate a two turn mile....small drop and back to Talamo who got the most out of this youngster

7  Backintheacademy   2 of 3 races since going on Lasix fit here and both are disguised somewhat by bad trips.....good work following a decent grass race at GG hint the turf race legged her up some

4  Charlsie's Song   might be the best early speed in this race so you know what Maldonado will be shooting for.......many a cheap maiden gets brave when loose going a route and this one might be

 1  La Pomme D'amour


race 5    average clarity

4  Chimi Dee   connections now seem to realize this filly prefers sprinting......late runner gets plenty of heat to flatter her close

6  Promiscuoussuances   never better than latest.......Mitchell claimed..........bullet work since.....feeling awfully good

2  Zanbo   off since Aug. but wound up like a top.......hit the track every 6 days to work for a prolonged period of time.....consistent sort is ready fresh

1  Atta Girl Alma

Long-shot possibilities:   8  Mark Of A Gem   sizzling speed seemingly out of nowhere down the hill at SA in last.......had a 5 length lead that diminished cut back of 1/2 furlong seems like a plus


race 6    average clarity

4  Tummel   much better in last and now we get a major league jockey upgrade......that'll do

2  Gutshot Straight   another who improved in last.....claimed by Hollendorfer and the works since the claim hint that this runner will show even more this afternoon

8  Gnarly  Dude    rebounded in last....steps up and has done well for Mulhall stepping up in the past

3  Innocent Man


race 7    average clarity

2  Sweep Swap   weird pace-less win in last......what we want is his strong effort 2 back

3  Compari   stellar grass sprinter has been away for one week short of a year....but she is training as if she is returning ready to roll......only needs to be 90% ready to be formidable here

5  Al Instante    laid up runner is working up to snuff.......2 for 2 in S Cal in alw turf sprints (won at 22 to 1 in one of them) .....and this is an alw race.....should be a price once again


race 8    average clarity

3  Hail Mary    big effort/fig 2 back.....easiest of wins in last......should have plenty in the tank for today

5  Iotapa   great 50K claim by Sadler......2nd to Beholder in last who ran a solid 2nd in the Ky Oaks.......Sadler has a good history with young fillies in extended sprint races which of course 7F is

2  Ciao Bella Luna   hard to argue with 3 wins and 1 2nd in 4 races on the AW........and has the backing of the hottest rider/trainer combo around over three past 3 months


race 9    average clarity

2  Don't Lose Faith    powerful pace and decent final time in last.......sure looks loose here and loose with the backing of a good speed rider and trainer

8  Heat Trap  Gaines first timer is nicely bred for the sod and seems to being training well enough to be ready at 1st asking

9  Tribal Syn   showed some early (hidden) speed in debut in what was likely a tune-up.......good grass sire and mom loved the turf......and Zucker is a decent grass conditioner.....blinkers on to help focus that speed

5  Keldy

4  Itsabeautifulday

7  Kana Flavor
