Hollywood for Thursday 6 June 2013


With the early post at Hollywood on Saturday because of the big day at Belmont ( an 11 race card at Hollywood and a 13 race card at Belmont)  our Hollywood selections will be posted no later than 6:30 a.m. Pacific time and most likely will be posted much earlier than that.

Best of luck today as always!


race 1    slightly above average clarity

1  Big Wags   drop after a win makes sense to me as this 6 year old loves the Hollywood synthetic......and the current meet is 1/2 over and Hollywood is a goner following the Fall meet

3  Bluegrass Reward   another who is making a drop in claiming that makes sense as Glatt snatched this gelding for only 8K.......recent works suggest the trainer means business here as he might believe he is going to lose the horse this afternoon

6  Husband's Folly   keeps dropping without success.....drops again but back in very short rest and the jock sticks around for a 2nd time.......hints at a gimme/go situation


race 2    average clarity

4  Lovemeister   best ever was turf to conventional dirt........colt is not bred well for the grass nor did he prform well on the turf on March May grass race was likely another turf  tightener for today's dirt affair (on the AW this time)

1  Corsa Di Cavalli   broke maiden at 1st asking last summer........fresh and training as if ready for his return to the race wars.......well placed to win in a conditioned claiminmg 25K race

5  Old Man Lake   2nd out after the claim by the red hot Adam Kitchingman.......blinkers off and a nice work........trainer is making all the right moves and maybe blinkers off for this gelding will be another one


race 3    average clarity

4  Nobilis   toss out last as this filly wants much more distance to negotiate to be at her best......gets it today at 1 1/4 and also gets a lower level of competition

3  Thisismystage   been racing at a higher level  in her last 8 races......last time this mare ran at today's lower allowance level she won by 2 1/4 and it was at today's 1 1/4 distance on the grass and at Hollywood.....hmmm

2  Showgirl Form   red hot trainer/rider combo in Yakteem/Baze.......3 year old filly faces older and at 1 1/4 miles which is no easy task but she has a pedigree that suggests the further she runs the better


race 4    average clarity

4  Sweet Lips Pooh   Solis has won his fair share of this early baby races as he usually does year after year and he appears ready with this mc50K 1st timer....filly works like she has a touch of early speed.....and I like that she has drilled at today's 5F distance

2  Evening News   seemingly wound up and ready to roll as this 1ster has hit the track an average of every 6 days since 28 March......happy healthy young horse for Sean McCarthy

3  She's Flush   ran fairly well considering she went off at 53 to 1..........seems very likely to move forward as I highly doubt she was all that meant and ready for Sherlock and company in her maiden debut

8  Tom Kha


race 5    average clarity

7  Queen Mercury   racing interval history for this filly hopefully tells the story for her effort today.........2 wins and 2 2nds in her last 4 races when she has run off of 6 to 8 weeks rest........7+ weeks since last here.....trainer has had a good year albeit with limited starters

2  Power Of Nine   ultra consistent sort and so is his trainer..........1st on the turf but seemingly owns a decent enough pedigree to handle it

8  Live the Forth   might own the best early speed in this affair.......jock has woken up from the doldrums of late and sure can be tough on the front end of things

3  Four Better


race 6    average clarity

2  Magnum Force   does his best running in two turn affairs and on the Hollywood the switch to Garrett Gomez as Smith has had 7 straight mounts on this Martin Jones runner and has yet to win with the maiden

1  Proud Boss   1st ever on the AW but bred fine to handle it and takes that ever significant drop out of MSW racing......difficult year for a good trainer in Janet Armstrong.......she sure seems due to turn things around

8  Gentlemen Pete   multiple 2 turn races on the turf or main track are better than par when adjusted for trip trouble.......but the colt is a wide runner so my guess is he will need to overcome a wide trip again.......lookout if this 3 year old ever gets to run on an outside bias a la 24 May @ Hol

6  Tucker's Point

Long-shot possibilities:   5  Brother Greg    decent forward move in 2nd lifetime race albeit in a grass guess is his last run off of 6 weeks rest was a gimme as I believe Kruljac would have run 3 year old much lower (like mdn30K) if he meant business..........30K today and back in short rest


race 7    slightly above average clarity

6  Biorhythm   exita a very key race when last seen on Aril 12th on the AW at Kee.......working as well as any young filly for Tom Proctor in many a moon.........should be in it from the get go 

2  Gifting   horrendous trip 2 races back in MSW debut at 3 to 5 and lost by 4........better trip in last but still had about 4L of trip trouble and won to break her maiden........might get it right in her 3rd start.....fits as well as anyone if she does

3  Corlett Drive   definitely on the right end of the learning curve.....1st ever on the AW but just ran well on the grass and most horse's that handle the sod handle the Cushion track at Hollywood


race 8    slightly below average clarity

6  Beautiful Spirit    broke tardy and ran wide making a strong looking turn move.......cleaner trip with the same energy makes her the one to overcome in her 2nd lifetime start

7  Stylish Sounds   trainer can score at handsome prices with maiden claiming 1sters.........this filly sure has been quick when she has worked out of the gate........and she has an impressive prolonged work has tossed 3 winners from 3 starters

9  My Best Ten   most of Kathy Walsh's stock have been firing this meet incuding her youngsters.......1st timer is training up to snuff and mom has been a perfect 6 winners from 6 starters

14  Midnight Lady

1  Cococ DE Carchy

10  Diva On The Track
