Promising horseman David White has had a busy week. He left for Victoria on Monday, raced on Tuesday and Wednesday before returning to Sydney to put the final touches on his four year old pacer Hollywood Sign before Saturday night's semi final of the Breeders Challenge at Tabcorp Park Menangle.

"I work for Blake Fitzpatrick and he has had some horses campaigning in Victoria and I have been looking after them but I am hoping for a good result in the semi finals of the Breeders Challenge back in Sydney on Saturday night that's for sure," White said.

"I think he has drawn the weaker semi final which will give him the best chance of progressing through to the final, he has got good gate speed and I have a couple of options in the race."

White races the horse in partnership with his uncle Trevor and friend Matthew Peden.

"Trevor did a great job with him in the Riverina and sent him up to me in great condition and he hasn't been too far away recently at Menangle. Actually Matt (Peden) said to me the other day his combined beaten margin since moving up here has been ten metres combined."

"To be honest he probably lacks that real high speed quarter, he doesn't possess the 26 second quarter and that is probably the difference between him and some of the other horses in the series but I'm hoping he can scrape in."

Hollywood Sign is the only horse that White is currently training and will compete in race four on Saturday night.

"Blake lets me work him in with his team and that is a great help, I have really enjoyed my 18 months with Blake, he has taught me so much and it is great to be working with the calibre of horses he has in his stable."

"When I moved up from Wagga it was something different for me being away from home but I really enjoy it and I still get to go home occasionally which is good."
