Hollywood for Friday 5 July 2013


Take note of the 7 p.m. Pacific starting time for this evening. Average card today but a nice one Saturday.

Early bird sign-up for full card selections for a magnificent day of racing at Arlington Park on Arlington Million day, August 17th will begin next week.

Best of luck as always tonight!


race 1    slightly above average clarity

7  Disco Lemonade   might not have cared for her 1st ever route endeavor in last........the race 2 back was an exceptionally strong sprint for the level and it is somewhat disguised by a wide trip close to a solid pace

8  U R My Candy Girl   trainer has been white hot the last two was 4th then 3rd then 2nd in last

6  Rich In Tradition   not much in last.......bad trip strong adjusted for trouble fig 2 back.......need a bounce back today to that race with a better trip-a-roo

2  Cardinal N Gold


race 2    average clarity

2  Four Better   SCRATCH

7  Rossi Reserve    lead type only seems to be tailing off.......likely needs a small rebound 1st out after the claim and get it under the guidance of a low % barn

6  Memo to Kathy   last off of the layoff and 1st out after the claim was very poor......needs a rebound in a big way 2nd out after the layoff and 2nd out after the aforementioned claim

4  Wrinkle Room


race 3    average clarity

4  Keep Movin'   big Z pattern (up close - fell back - came on late) in mc debut.......and the work regiment since in preparation for his 1st ever at a route of ground is stellar ( would be good for a MSW runner) for the bottom level maiden claiming in S Cal

5  Stayo   all three lifetime races (two of them turf affairs at Tup) fit fine here and his last over the Hol AW is hidden by a bad trip

3  Tuckers Point   fell off precipitously in latest.....race two back is solid and would make him a top contender if he can rebound to it

6  One Mint Julie


race 4    slightly below average clarity

6  Barocci    very strong run in last probably his lifetime best........definitely the one to beat by quite a bit if this Sadler runner has made a major breakthrough.....if he hasn't he is likely to regress some.......still some shot to win if he does regress as long as he gets a good trip

5  Old Time Hockey    3 of last 5 races for 2 months since last seen in Kentucky but training as if he is ready to roll fresh off of the bench

2  Temple's Door   difficult to tell when this Mullin's charge brings his "A game" but he sure could be formidable here of he is up to his best today


race 5    average clarity

8  Tom's Tribute   horrendous trip in MSW debut (tons the best horse in the race breaking bad and rushed).....trained like a good runner prior to his debut and has trained decently since....rider upgrade.......owns significant early speed.....needs to break well today

1  Blue Tone   SCRATCH

4  Mi Hijo   just shy of a par average for his 3 lifetime races......and par is usually a good thing........blinkers on and a bullet work hints the equipment change will do some good for this Miller runner

5  Okaad


race 6    slightly below average clarity

3  Langfurs Lightning   lone win came turf to Hol AW........that is today's scenario...... and...... the recent works hint this gelding is ready for a strong effort.......David Hofmans has had a good meeting with limited starts

2  Strictly Class   won rather easily at 1st asking in mc debut......claimed and training up to snuff for his new connections.......needs only a small logical move forward in 2nd lifetime start to be a major player here

10  Currahee   only race on the AW isn't so hot but his other 6 lifetime starts would make him tough here......deserves another shot on the Hol synthetic as he handles the sod and most that run on the grass fit fine on the Hollywood AW

6  Dashing Ash

Long-shot possibilities:    5  Turn On The Brites   definitely on the right end of the learning curve........2nd out of a layoff.........and hot apprentice is up


race 7    average clarity

1  Miss Pippa   appears to want to run all day and it showed in winning at today's 1 1/4 mile distance going away at the wire in her last......that race fits and today she runs with 8 lbs off......very significant running at 1 1/4

5  Customer Base   4 of last 5 races fit decently for this Tom Proctor turf filly.......1st at this mini-marathon distance but she owns a pedigree that suggests she will handle it

4  Midnight Music   runs as far as you want her to go so the distance shouldn't be a problem.....only 1 race in the last 10 months but that race which was run at CD in mid May would be a fit versus these


race 8    average clarity

1  Beautiful Spirit   wide near the pace in a very fast heat hides a decent run in last.....but more importantly just worked as though this filly has made a break through.....46:2 H   best of 30.......impressive for a bottom level female maiden claimer

7  Pipedreaming  SCRATCH

9  Scary Fast   off since debut in April of 2012 but ran well enough versus significantly better that if she comes back 80% of what she was she is a fit here......most of Gaines stock have been firing to some degree

5  Chaturunga

6  Angel Be Quick

8  Margies Rule
