Hollywood for Friday 14 June 2013


After a difficult first race the race card looks good. Also, both Saturday and Sunday both seem to be nice cards and very playable.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    slightly below average clarity

3  Itsalwayssomething    Sadler has popped with 7 of his last 10 when he drops in claiming price first out after a claim....decent shot to sit in a nice stalk position

6  Justa Gusta   up in claiming price for the 2nd time in a row and his figs in last 2 endeavors support the move.......likely feeling awfully good

5  Bodaway  good history on the Hol AW........ solid figure in last..........would have rated higher if he wasn't a lead type only to date.......needs to avoid a suicidal speed duel with the 4 horse one way or another


race 2    average clarity

4  Kristinite   decent MSW debut........blinkers on and training great apparently with them on.........Kristin Mulhall runners have been firing on all cylinders

6  Cause Ur My Baby   broke slow and ran wide and still managed 2nd in MSW debut........Mike Smith will be out to make amends in 2nd lifetime start

5  South Sound    O'Neill 1st timer is working as if she owns an abundance of early speed........bought for $200K 2 months ago so the connections pretty much had a handle on what they were buying

3  Gagaoveryou


race 3    average clarity

1  Streets Of Heaven   believe this 8 year old is only doing average at best these days but he catches the easiest group this afternoon that I can recall 

7  Mr. Padre   Tup invader owns good speed in this spot.......wire to wire shot

2  Valkyrie Missile   a lot like our top pick..........only running so so but in with a soft looking bunch 

6  Marine Fog   impressive a.m work since Greenman claimed.......what we could use is his effort 3 races back which was very solid and turned out to be a key GG race


race 4    average clarity

6  Joeandbetty'sbaby   solid sprint turf race down the hill at SA two races back.........late runner has a small field to cope with as opposed to a large one where things can get jammed up and difficult to find room and an open lane......barn is hot of late and the recent drills for this filly are quite stout

5  Lady Katfish   was on the right end of the learning curve to say the least until forced to lay up in mid as if returning ready.....she sure fits if she can continue on from where she left off

3  Myntz Connection   decent return to the race wars in latest........fits fine if she can move forward off of the effort and her a.m. work hints that she will........Ron Ellis appears to be awakening of late and that is a scary thing


race 5    average clarity

2  Honey Fever   work regiment for this Spawr 1ster is very solid for someone like Spawr who doesn't push them too hard in the a.m........and it sure seems like a good sign his number one guy is aboard in the name of Mike Smith who sure came thru for The Racing Digest folks in the Belmont Stakes

4  Saint Leo   both lifetime races on the Hollywood AW are par like efforts for today's level.....and......the cut back of 1/2 furlong appears to be a plus for today

3  Super Dice   decent layoff race in last........fits just fine if logically builds upon the effort 2nd out after the break

1  El Tovar


race 6    slightly above average clarity

8  Top Kisser   best grass credentials in the a.m. work rider/trainer team..........and seemingly only has the the 1 horse to cope with on the front end

6  Chokecherymary   very nice mare needs a small rebound of sorts and her connections must believe the equipment change of blinkers on will provide it

7  Jolly Days   last two grass races don't fit.....might not care for the SA turf course......back on the Hollywood grass course where she has done her best running

2  Freedom Reigns


race 7    slightly above average clarity

2  Paynter    best early speed........great work tab.......only question mark seems to be the 1st ever on the AW 

6  Kate's Event   very good history racing at 7 and 7 1/2 furlongs........should be closing fast late as she always does in one turn affairs

5  Majestic City   obvious tune-up in last......should be a full throttle go this afternoon.....3 for 5 on the Hol synthetic.........0 for 6 on all other surfaces

7  Grand Berry


race 8    average clarity

1  Romantic Wish   very wide trip in last hides a better than par effort in last......claimed in the race and runs back at the same price........and with a much better post.......1 post versus 9 post.......most of her career is very competitive here

8  Smart Striking    another with a wide trip in last......and.....still managed to win.........impressive.........most likely will need a better trip from her jock in at least save some ground on one turn

4  Candy Trophy   logical drop for this filly as she has failed to earn her keep since being claimed for twice today's claiming price last Nov..........most of her career fits well at today's 25K claiming  level

2  Prettypriceygirl

9  Lilly's Perfect

7  Tribalicious
