Hollywood for Friday 21 June 2013


Good looking card.

Best of luck as always!


race 1   slightly above average clarity

4  Mia Lady   good MSW debut 2 back.....better 2nd lifetime start running better than par........continues to train like a happy healthy youngster

6  Lakeside Bride    lifetime best was in her latest and she has worked since as if the same of better is likely to occur this afternoon.......needs to overcome a small tendency to hang in the stretch

2  Tribal Syn    morning glory might be a shocker if she can break cleanly from the gate for the 1st time ever......often when horses do well in the a.m. and not in the p.m. they can wake up when on or close to the lead


race 2    slightly above average clarity

1  Raise The Hoof    solid combination of 1st time gelding and sharp recent drills signal that a strong effort is likely today for this Bonde baby that is dropping out of MSW racing

3  Snowmass Village   SCRATCH good work regiment for this Dean Pederson first timer and the conditioner is solid with mc 1st timers

8  Oso Smart    Doug O'neill 1ster appears ready at 1st asking but Krigger will need a clever ride from a tough outer-most 8 post at 4 1/2 furlongs

2  Western Showdown


race 3    slightly above average clarity

1  Too Fast to Pass   drop makes sense as this Miller runner has been facing a little too tough and $40K isn't chump change......gelding can be in the hunt from the get go

6  Laugh At Life   small drop of $10K helps......stout series of 3 works in preparation for today's race

5  Old Man Lake   improved in last and it is somewhat hidden in that this gelding ran 3 wide on a day the inside was quite good and he still managed to close in the stretch......and the trainer has had his best meeting by far in many a moon


race 4    slightly below average clarity

4  Visions of Candy   SCRATCH  no pace whatsoever to close into in mc debut and then a very bad trip in 2nd lifetime start.......same effort/energy with a decent trip might land her in the circle of joy

5  J K's Mischief   good speed in this spot and adds the blinkers......tried blinkers on in the past unsuccessfully but it was on conventional dirt which she appears to dislike......AW today and she has sprinted well on grass so most likely will take to the Hol Cushion track

2  Brandon's Princess   bad trip 2nd lifetime start in last was decent......bad trip 2 back was a solid maiden debut.....getting rather hidden

1  Elegant in Silk


race 5    slightly above clarity

3  Ismene   SCRATCH  most accomplished horse in the field and she seemingly owns the best early gas........a deadly combination with Smith up for Spawr

2  Bella Viaggia   when last seen she popped an effort that is quite strong and matches up well with our top since Oct 2012 but she has fired fresh off of the bench in the past

5  Belle De Luna   trainer is rather cold but too good to hold down too much longer especially with his grass stock....... turf route last looks like a tune-up to tighten up for today's sprint grass race


race 6    average clarity

8  Raised A Secret   big bullet 5/8ths work just 5 days city when it counts........and a significant rider upgrade from the bottom to the top of the jockey standings

3  Appolo Ten   gelding keeps stepping up and responding fairly well to the challenge.....steps up again and might own the best early speed in the race

4  Sizzlin' Joe   has been a smooth runner most of his career so I was a touch surprised to find out he was gelded (not so sizzlin' anymore) since his last.......but something bothered his sharp connections with his behavior so that is good enough for me

5  Warren's Wild Thing

Long-shot Possibilities:   6  Awesome Indy   awfully washy in last so toss it out........layoff total gimme previously......deserves another shot if doesn't get washy today?


race 7    slightly above average clarity

1  Coach Bob   very dangerous speed in this spot and he is training sharply.......only has to last 5 turf furlongs and gets what I think will be an advantages post for this seldom run turf distance at Hollywood

3  Chosen Miracle   needs to avoid a duel with our top pick by getting a jump on him out of the gate or sitting back off him some which I think he is capable of doing in a 5F race

2  Boat Trip   dangerous 3 for 5 on the sod off pace runner especially if Valdivia saves some ground as long as is possible

5  Kinsale King


race 8    average clarity  

(only giving 5 horses for night cap Super High Five because of the small 8 horse last race field)

8  Hidden Passion    seems like a new much improved individual since switching to 2 turn (AW) racing.....difficult outer most 8 post but well placed to win and Talamo handles this one well

5  Katy's Kitty   lead type only most likely will be out to to clear early and clear with the meets leading rider up.....dangerous if he does clear

1  Bonita Star   SCRATCH   not the best of trips and had to attempt to close into a lackluster pace.......should get good heat up front here to flatter her late run.......good trainer sure is do to wake up

2  Running for Jakob

3  Pearloftheorient
