Hollywood for Friday 29 November 2013


Fairly decent looking nine race card.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

7  Charisma Code   seems best at Bhp.....all three efforts at Bhp are par like races considering today's level........and par is good especially versus a soft looking bunch

5  Warrensgoldenyears   1st time starter for Jorge Gutierrez is training decently for a Cal-bred maiden claimer about to make his debut......and the meets top gun and his agent want the has tossed 2 winners from 2 starters and they both precociously won at 2

4  Mosso   only one of seven lifetime races looks like it is good enough to compete for the win here and it was the last time this colt ran with the blinkers off as they are today.....and the race was at Hollywood.........and last but not least this baby just popped a vastly improved 5/8ths bullet drill

6  Head South


race 2    average clarity

6  Turn On The Brites   consistent sort and steadily improving one small step at a time..........smartly steps up one level after dropping in latest off of two consecutive very strong races.......apprentice Gonzalo Nicolas is starting to learn his craft and NOW appears as if his 7 lbs. allowance is well worth it 

4  Judge Carr   just claimed by Charles Treece who is stout 1st out after a claim and that includs competing on the "big" circuits.......likely to fire....... but......the three-old-gelding seems to show some "hanger" tendencies

5  Tribal Smoke   both lifetime conventional dirt races sure fit fine here.......needs to run similar on the synthetic (for the 1st time ever) this afternoon

2  Tale Be Told


race 3    slightly above average clarity

3  Trelawny   very consistent sort was just snatched at the claiming box by Moger off a very impressive 1st ever on the Santa Anita hill turf course........impressive work series for his new connections.......seems likely to reproduce the effort put forth in his latest

8  Mr. Bossy Pants   as consistent in grass sprinter as any 25-30K runner on the grounds.......seems overdo to toss a clunker but I have been concerned about that for the last 6 months or's kind of like the stock guy who has sweaty palms because just about everybody involved in the stock market is palms have been sweaty the last 2 years

2  Carbonite   barn mate Koast was hot at the windows in last......Carbonite was cold........drills since his iffy latest are improved......doubt our 3rd pick is cold at the windows today

6  Koast 


race 4    average clarity

9  Glad's Gals   both lifetime races on the Bhp AW are solid here......and the 2 drills since her latest are vastly improved and hint at a top effort this afternoon.........Gryder off.....waking up 7 lbs. app Nicolas up.......seems like a plus as usually solid jock Gryder is in a slump 

3  Perfect Tango   debut 3 back run on the Dmr AW is par like for today's mdn20K level......not much in next two starts both on conventional dirt.......gets back on an AW surface today......and sure is bred well to appreciate route racing

6  Nezi O's Gold   might be better running a route of ground....and might be loose in this spot.....retains Kayla Stra who is having the meet of her life.......might be the "baby needs a new pair of shoes" scenario..........literally

5  Lovely in Laguna

Long-shot consideration:   2  Speedy Vixen   very hidden move forward in last........ran wide on a day the rail was the express lane............and it was a fast heat where getting beat by 13L (considering her trip) was a good par like effort.....rider upgrade today as note of caution is that she tends to hang


race 5    slightly below average clarity

1  Level Headed   late runner is on the right end of the learning curse.........seems like a decent spot for a closer.........good rider.........extra 1/16th today looks like a plus

7  Heat Du Jour   in good form right now.......1 for 1 at today's distance.......two very sharp drills since her last hint that this Abrams three-year-filly has another good effort in her

4  Foxy Boss   filly really responds when she gets a mid pack or stalk position and saves ground and that appears likely here......and her jock Mario Gutierrez has developed a knack for producing some good stalking turf trips

9  Journey On


race 6    average clarity

1  Zuboff   significant drop in claiming doesn't bother me too much as this Miller runner loves the Hol AW and Hollywood closes for good in 3+ it is "win when it is an easier task even at the risk of losing a your horse"

8  Muchos Besos   all 5 races since Puype claimed fit well here at today's $12,000 lower level......drop bothers me some but not too much as Puype snatched this horse for only $10,000

9  Guidopanzini   another who seems best at Hollywood.......won her last despite a bad trip in a race run at one notch lower......low % jock best give this Farris runner a better trip today versus tougher

5  Sandy's Diamond


race 7    slightly above average clarity

5  Bio Pro   from mdn20k to my top choice in a Grade 2.......extremely improved and sharp runner.........likely to get a good ground saving stalk position behind a hot pace which has been his route to victory more than once.....and carries 8 lbs less than his strong last

8  Winning Prize   had to argue with (7 6 1 0) on the grass including 3 Grade ! wins in Argentina......broke the 133 Flat barrier in first U S of A endeavor and did it of an 8 month layoff....that'll do

7  Silentio   very consistent smooth looking runner.....1 for 1 at today's distance........retains Bejarano for the 7th straight race......seems likely to be in the hunt for the top prize as he usually is

2  Summer Frost


race 8    slightly below average clarity

1  Say Owe   2 for 2 at Bhp on the AW.......0 for 8 on other work preparation from Canani in many a moon strongly suggests he has pointed this three-year-old-gelding to be at a peak so that he get take full advantage of a surface that he loves before it is too late....last day ever at Hollywood is 22 December

2  Hadfunlastnight   eventful last and the effort is hidden.......dueled in solid pace and it is was an inside run on a dull rail day.......did extremely well to only get beat by 8L to the eventual B C Sprint winner in Secret Circle

5  Atta Boy Pete   two impressive works following an improved effort in latest.....cut back of 1/2 furlong sure looks like a plus.......should be on or near the lead from the get go


race 9    average clarity

10  Practising   66 to 1 in maiden debut in GB last summer and this filly ran 2nd against the boys.........went off favorite versus her own sex in her next and just missed....and the horse that beat her came back to win her since but working well for her debut in the good old U S of A......and the meets top gun and his agent want the mount

7  Kitten De Pere   so so drills prior to MSW debut and ran a so so effort.........drills since are improved so.........more seems likely this afternoon........trainer is red hot and he using Talamo as his top guy of late

9  Galchorn   decent sprint grass layoff run in last first out under the guidance of John Sadler........ran fine in a turf route at Delaware in late August........should have a good chance for a strong effort today with the sprint grass race under her belt

5  Elite Eight

2  Madame Heat

11  Grammy Times Six
