Racing! Frank Stronach to sell Kentucky farm with plan of moving some inventory to California

Hello, my name is John Cherwa, and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter where we are happy to report that the videoboard at Santa Anita has allowed the one post to emerge from the darkness.

One of the first big moves made by Santa Anita boss Tim Ritvo to revitalize racing in California didn’t happen here but in Kentucky.

Ritvo’s fingerprints were all over the announcement on Wednesday that Frank Stronach would sell his horse-breeding farm Adena Springs, near Paris, Ky. The rationale: to move some of his horses to California and Maryland, where he has racetracks.

Ritvo foreshadowed the move in a June interview with The Times.

“We talked about that,” Ritvo said then when asked if Stronach would move horses to California. “Everywhere that I got involved, in Florida or Maryland and now, hopefully in California, I’ve convinced him the business model is moving in the right direction.

“And [we could use] a little help from some of his inventory and stock. He’s open to it. About two years ago — when we were exploring about coming out here — we explored some of the farms and things like that. So there was always the thought that we would come back and breed some horses and have some inventory here.”

Stronach plans to keep his commitments in Kentucky to the 2018 breeding season but is open to leasing his stallions to whomever buys the 1,500-acre farm. He plans to relocate his mares and any employees who want to go to another of his farms near Midway, Ky.

“We have a shortage of horses in California, so I want to interface with the horse community there, the racing commission, the breeders, and the owners and say, ‘What can we do together?’ ” Stronach told Joe Nevills of the Daily Racing Form. “I think we might need a little better stallions and good programs so we have more California-bred stallions.”

There is plenty of money in this state for Cal breds running and winning in the state.

If you can score a maiden special weight race with a Cal bred in Southern California, the owner gets $17,500 plus the purse money. If you win in Northern California (as Brave Helios did on Sept. 17, more on him in a few days) you get $10,000.

Newsletter updates

The always moving, always changing nature of this newsletter adds another prognosticator, this time for quarter horses. Ed Burgart, the best quarter-horse announcer ever, will be giving you a spot play of the day for Los Alamitos. If you’ve never been to Los Al, you should make a trip there. It’s like stepping into a time machine. The track is weathered and dated but that becomes part of its charm. There is an upscale place to watch the races, the Vessels Club, named for Frank and Millie Vessels, who founded the Los Al race track. Best of all, the Vessels Club has a dress code. (Remember when R.D. Hubbard shook the racing world by not requiring men to wear ties in the Hollywood Park turf club?) Los Al exists today solely because of the passion of Ed Allred, known as Doc Allred. The track also has a series of short thoroughbred meetings sandwiched between Santa Anita and Del Mar meetings. The quarter horses run Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Los Al’s weekend

Since we have so much love for Los Al, let’s talk about its weekend. It starts with the running of the Grade 3, $184,000 PCQHRA Breeders Derby on Friday. LD Is Back is the 5-2 morning line favorite, heading a field of 10 over 400 yards. LD Is Back finished second in his derby trial on Sept. 16. Two-time stakes winner One Proud Eagle, for trainer John Cooper, is the second choice at 3-1. One Proud Eagle won last year’s Kindergarten Futurity. There are also stakes races named in honor of trainer Blane Schvaneveldt and jockey Kip Didericksen.

Undefeated KVN Corona, considered the top 2-year-old at Los Al, is the 3-5 favorite in the Grade 2, $400,000 PCQHRA Breeders Futurity over 350 yards on Saturday. He has won all four of his starts including the Grade 1 Ed Burke Million Futurity on June 18. He won his trial by 2¼ lengths. Sunday’s card will have four trials to the Wild West Futurity. Thirty-two horses will run in the trials with the 10 fastest moving on to the $100,000 final on Oct. 29. Los Al is also hosting the Los Alamitos Equine Sale on Saturday and Sunday.

Ed Burgart’s LA spot play

6TH RACE: #4 Boxcar Willi (3-1)

The 3-year-old gelding has leading rider Jesus Ayala up for new trainer Lindolfo Diaz, who is winning at a 24% clip and gets a positive class hike.

SA videoboard update

Yes, the No. 1 post at Santa Anita is alive and well. It was seemingly kidnapped by videoboard gremlins over the weekend and hidden behind a wall of black. Santa Anita had successfully tested it before the meet opened and everything worked, according to Nate Newby, Santa Anita’s marketing guru. But, much like how your car works perfectly when you take it to the shop, once you need it to work for real, the problem isn’t fixed. No difference here. Newby said they had to wait for a part from across the Pacific.

Santa Anita preview

Don’t know where Santa Anita found all the horses (maybe in the barns on the backstretch) but a lot of them are running in races now. After Thursday’s full-field race card, the track is coming back with another one on Friday. There are three turf races, the second, fifth and eighth, two of them down the hill. Check out these field sizes, in sequential order: 10, 10 (plus 4 also eligible), 12, 10, 10 (3AE), 9, 10, 10 (4AE).

A sentimental favorite will be Ziconic, in the sixth race, a maiden special weight over 1 1/16 miles. Ziconic is the equine version of Prince Harry, son of Lady Diana. Harry was royally born but will never be king, the curse of being second, and we really never paid much attention to him until he started dating Meghan Markle. Well, Ziconic isn’t dating anyone — trainer John Shirreffs would never allow it — but he is the son of Zenyatta, the Queen. The 4-year-old colt has found some hard luck being winless in nine tries. He has two seconds and four thirds. He’s earned almost $55,000. Maybe today will be the day.

No one hit the pick six on Thursday so Friday’s pool is expected to exceed a mil. There is a two-day carryover of $266,793 and there is a single winner pick six bonus of $111,442. Large fields make great betting opportunities and Santa Anita is taking advantage of it.

Before we leave the discussion, one subscriber asked about Thursday’s first race, on the turf, and why there were only eight horses running (with six also eligibles) and not more starters. The Santa Anita turf course has a movable rail and if you look on the program it says where the rail is set. On Thursday it was set at 30 feet, that’s a lot. So, the running area is smaller, thus only eight starters. On Friday, it’s set at 20 feet and there are 10 starters. This past Saturday, it was set at zero feet and there were 12 starters. The reason that’s done is to preserve the course, and to spread the hoofprints around and keep it from looking and being all chewed up. Hope that helps.

Jeff Nahill's SA spot play

8TH RACE: #1 Ava Forty Seven (12-1)

It's possible this is a prep race for going two turns for trainer Phil D'Amato, but he is 22% off a layoff of this length, 22% going from route to sprint and 20% on the turf. He puts Jamie Theriot aboard and they are 21% together, but an even better 29% at Santa Anita. Good works at San Luis Rey Downs in Bonsall. This is also the “other” D'Amato so might suggest an exacta box of Ava and #3 Be Mine (5-2).
