Hollywood for Saturday 15 June 2013


Nice Fathers Day weekend of racing.

Good luck to all especially the Dads.


race 1    slightly above  average clarity

5  Cherry On The Cake    just claimed and training awfully well........ major rider upgrade to Bejarano who is 2 for 2 on this filly.......trainer is quite good historically 1st out after a claim

3  Christmas Candy   toss out last doesn't like the grass......toss out 2 back caught slop and didn't handle it.......3 previous races fit awfully since Feb but trainer is good off of long layoffs

4  Dilly's Dancer   Miller obviously made a bad claim last summer with this runner but that doesn't mean this mare's last wasn't a gimme to drop and go here......Miller sure has been firing on all cylinders


race 2    slightly above average clarity

7  Fly High   SCRATCHED   

2  Blazing Lute   good looking work tab for this Palma 1st timer with both speed and endurance put into his new 3 year old.....rather sure ready to roll

1  Dashing Ash   has always worked better than he runs........maybe being gelded since his last will get this morning glory to show similar prowess in the p.m.

8  Yacht Harbor


race 3   average clarity

5  Villeneuve   not much overseas both sure fired a decent effort in her 1st run in the good old U S of A.......and now we get a significant rider upgrade to Bejarano who put on a show yesterday

3  Blingismything    never easy to win a turf route in your MSW debut but this filly managed to.......trainer has scratched twice shopping for a good spot and/or post and seemingly is happy facing today's field

1  Miss Ellany   believe was the "rabbit" for late running barn mate in last running way way over her head.....back where belongs and can get loose here with a solid lead rider in the saddle

7  Tap The Magic


race 4    average clarity

2  On The Backstreets   impressive smooth looking win in MSW debut and for Miller who sure has been getting it done with his youngsters

4  Sensational Niki   SCRATCHED

5  Time For Angie   decent MSW debut win........but what I really like is the stout aggressive work regiment since......high likelihood of moving forward today

7  Sprouts


race 5    slightly above average clarity

4  Yes It's Snowing   so so effort in latest......but lookout if this Miller runner rebounds to his race 2 back

1  Mr. Bossy Pants    the energizer bunny of grass sprinters in S cal......just claimed and continues to work like a happy healthy

2  Blue Jay Attack   par like effort in last but lookout if this late running six year old fires his effort 2 back and gets just an OK trip.....had a very bad trip in the race and still snatched 2nd

3  Skimasco


race 6    average clarity

6  Spirit Rules   a ton here if this Aguirre runner returns off of the long hiatus from the track at least 90% of what he was........both races on the Hol AW are very strong efforts

7  Night Badger   best ever and by quite a bit was his 2nd lifetime start which was run in 2nd out after the layoff in 2013 ought to be a good thing especially running off of a turf tightener

4  Real Heat   nine tries to break MSW and the MSW breaking win was nothing special......but what intrigues me is a sizzling seemingly out of nowhere bullet drill of that is some real heat

3  Follini


race 7    average clarity

7  Cotton's Point    outstanding work tab for this filly who now is under the guidance of Jerry Hollendorfer.....1st on the sod but sure ran well on the Hollywood AW last summer and most runners that handle the Cushion Track handle the grass well

4  Harper Rae    big effort in lone career start in a 5F turf race at CD........that effort would most likely take this race but she returns in a cold barn with moderate works or would have been top selection

3  Vanilla Shake   O'Neill 1ster is training as if ready to roll 1st out of the box......good trainer/rider combo with the rider seemingly turning into a very nice grass rider after not seeing the green carpet in the Northwest and having to learn on the fly in California.......rather impressive

6  Glorious Luck


race 8    slightly below average clarity

7  California Chrome   nice forward move in 2nd lifetime start to break MSW......and an eye popping drill since of 59:1H....that is faaaaaast for a 2 year old in early June

6  Willie B Awesome    solid forward move to break MSW in 2nd lifetime endeavor......and two drills that hint he will move forward once again

2  Kobe's Back    expensive baby just bought in March for $480K shoots for a win in a Stakes race.........not like Sadler to start a runner in a Stakes race so this must be one nice youngster

4  Solid Wager


race 9    average clarity

6  Lady Of Fifty   seems to love the Hollywood Cushion Track........last was a nice layoff can be even better 2nd out the layoff

2  Byrama    last two 7f sprint races in Ky fir.......question is get she produce the same at today's 1 1/8th mile distance......Stevens (and of course his agent) must think so as they sure have picked their spots to ride awfully well

4  Royal Tiger   no fluke winning by 14L as a 3 year old Grade 3 (won by Tiz A Minister) went in 4 clicks slower 2 races later.....trainer has a dismal record in Graded races but he has a shot to help that stat right here


race 10    slightly above average clarity

8  Secret Demo    speed/Miller/Pedroza/good drills/5 1/2F.......... all suggest this laid up runner will fire a solid effort fresh off of the bench this afternoon

9  Goldilocks Planet   horrid trip in mc debut did awfully well to only get beat by 8 3/ jock today and I like the choice......good looking apprentice in Orozco

14  Rockin' Hard Gals   Craig Lewis is doing great with his limited starts this meeting and he has a shot to keep the ball rolling here if Gonzales can manage to give this filly a clever ride from tough outside post.....last sure fits and it was off of a layoff

1  Regift

10  Royal Weekend

12  Kandra
