Racing! Congratulations to Forever Unbridled for winning the Distaff

Hello, my name is John Cherwa. Welcome back to our horse racing newsletter, and here’s wishing Stellar Wind a great new career.

Del Mar handled the first day (the easy day) of the Breeders’ Cup pretty smoothly. The racetrack definitely couldn’t do that if it didn’t cap attendance around 38,000. I heard a great analogy about the difference between Santa Anita hosting the event and Del Mar. Santa Anita is like a battleship with all the support and know-how of a military operation. Del Mar is like someone’s private yacht, a couple of smart people but mostly in it just for the fun.

Del Mar gets a solid A for the first day, although it was not sold out, as only 32,278 were at the track.

Let’s get to the capsules of Friday’s races, provided by my colleague Mike Tierney, and then we’ll follow up with my mini-previews of Saturday’s races. Remember, if you want to win, consult a professional (like Jeff and Aaron’s video below), don’t look to me.

Friday’s races

Juvenile Fillies Turf

Winner: Contestants in the Cup races for 2-year-olds cannot defend their titles, but trainers and jockeys can. Chad Brown and Javier Castellano, who teamed last year with the winning New Money Honey, repeated with Rushing Fall. The second betting choice at 3-to-1 in the maximum 14-horse field needed a fast break from the wide No. 11 post and got it, only to get bounced around. Castellano got the filly in front early in the stretch and held on by three-quarters of a length to stay unbeaten in three outings.

Scoop: Seven months ago, Brown told the horse’s co-owner, Bob Edwards, “Look, if you give her to me, I’ll take you to the Breeders’ Cup.” Assigning Rushing Fall to Brown was not exactly a risk. The master of grass racing earned his fourth Juvenile Fillies Turf victory Friday.

Quote: “He’s very dedicated. He picks the spot with the horse. ... He takes his time. ... He tries to pay attention to the little details. You put that together, and you always have a better result.” — Castellano on Brown’s turf success

Dirt Mile

Winner: Battle of Midway has raced on the lead before but, emerging from the No. 9 post in a 10-horse cast, ceded the pace and was situated behind the speed. Jockey Flavien Prat saved some ground with deft maneuvering, which allowed the 14-to-1 shot to enter the stretch in second place and run down front-running Sharp Azteca to score by a half-length. Battle of Midway topped his previous best effort two races back in his Del Mar debut.

Scoop: Prat has contributed beyond his riding to the horse’s winning ways. He urged trainer Jerry Hollendorfer to consider using blinkers to keep Battle of Midway focused on the task. Hollendorfer obliged, adding small blinkers prior to the triumph at Del Mar by 6 1/4 lengths in the Shared Belief Stakes.

Quote: “When Prat [first] came around, [trainer] Richard Mandella started riding him, and I think that perked a few people up. If Richard would use him, then everybody else thought they should give him a chance too.” — Hollendorfer

Juvenile Turf

Winner: It’s not often that a favorite goes off at 9-to-2. Mendelssohn, nearly 5-to-1, did so and rewarded his backers with a one-length win as trainer Aidan O’Brien and jockey Ryan Moore, the British version of Brown and Castellano, partnered for their fourth blue ribbon in this race, all since 2011. A late foal who is still green, Mendelssohn finished 33 1/2 lengths behind two efforts ago and placed eighth, 16 lengths back, in his inaugural race five starts back. He raced more professionally Friday.

Scoop: Though O’Brien’s horses have not hit the board in the Kentucky Derby, with a best finish of fifth in five attempts, he might give it another go with Mendelssohn, whose pedigree hints that he could excel on dirt courses. “We had it in our head that if everything went well today, he could be a horse we could train for the Kentucky Derby,” he said.

Quote: “I think one or two people quibbled about [the sizable amount of] his yearling price, which was $3 million, but I don't think they're quibbling now.” —Co-owner Michael Tabor

Distaff

View from the experts

In case you missed it, here’s some great handicapping advice from Jeff Siegel and Aaron Vercruysse of xbtv. Here is their analysis of the final four Breeders’ Cup races on Saturday’s card (watch here). And here is their look at the first five races on Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup program. (watch here).

Saturday’s races

Juvenile Fillies (noon)

Moonshine Memories, running for Simon Callaghan, is the favorite at 7-2 in this 1 1/16-mile race with 13 runners. She’s undefeated in three starts, two of those at Del Mar. She won at this distance at Santa Anita by a convincing 2 3/4 lengths. Separationofpowers, for Chad Brown, is the second favorite at 4-1. She has won two of her three starts, running in New York. Mark Casse is bringing forth Heavenly Love at 9-2. She has won her last two running in Kentucky. All three fillies have at least one Grade 1 stakes win. Moonshine Memories and Heavenly Love have the same sire, Malibu Moon.

Turf Sprint (12:37 p.m.)

Lady Aurelia is the only 3-year-old in the five-furlong race. She debuted at Keeneland, where she won by 7 1/2 lengths and then shipped across the pond to race in Britain and France. She did come back for one other Keeneland race, which she won, and picked up John Velazquez as her jockey. She’s won five of seven and never finished out of the money. She’s the 5-2 favorite. Marsha, a 4-year-old filly, is shipping here from Europe with seven wins in 17 starts. If she wins, it will give us an excuse to say, “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha.” (Only those of a certain age will get that reference.) She’s at 7-2.

Filly & Mare Sprint (1:14 p.m.)

This is all about Unique Bella, a 3-year-old for Jerry Hollendorfer. Bella has won five of six races and looked like a favorite for the Kentucky Oaks before she was shut down in March with sore shins. She rested up and came back on Oct. 8 to win the LA Woman at Santa Anita by 3 1/2 lengths. Mike Smith is her regular jockey. She broke her maiden in her second race, at Del Mar, winning by 10 1/4. So she likes the track. Skye Diamonds is the second choice at 5-1 for Bill Spawr in the 14-horse, seven-furlong race. Finley’sluckycharm is at 6-1.

Filly & Mare Turf (2 p.m.)

Last year in this race, Lady Eli lost by a nose to Queen’s Trust. Both are back but are in different orbits. Lady Eli is the 5-2 favorite and has three Grade 1 wins in four races this year. She was second in the other race. Queen’s Trust (12-1) hasn’t finished better than third in her five races this year. Brown and Irad Ortiz should have the upper hand on this shipper. The second favorite is Grand Jete at 6-1.

Sprint (2:37 p.m.)

Drefong is hoping to become the second horse to win the six-furlong Sprint in back-to-back years. The first was Midnight Lute in 2008-09. The commonality? Both are trained by Bob Baffert. Drefong missed the first half of 2017 after he spiked a temperature late last year. Baffert kept him off the track and brought him back for the Bing Crosby Stakes in July, and he unseated rider Smith. He then went to Saratoga and won by a comfortable four lengths. He’s won six of eight lifetime races. He’s the 5-2 favorite. Roy H is the second favorite at 7-2. He also was in the Bing Crosby and finished second after being interfered with by a riderless Drefong. Imperial Hunt, at 9-2, has a five-race winning streak, running on the East Coast.

Mile (3:19 p.m.)

This turf race doesn’t have many horses familiar to Southern California horse racing fans. Only Midnight Storm for Phil D’Amato and Blackjackcat for Mark Glatt regularly run on this circuit. Both horses are 15-1. Ribchester is the favorite at 7-2. The 4-year-old colt was second in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Royal Ascot. World Approval, for Mark Casse, has won four of five this year, two of those Grade 1s. Velazquez has the mount for the 5-year-old gelding. He’s 9-2.

Juvenile (3:58 p.m.)

On the surface, no one can touch Bolt D’Oro, who crushed the field in the FrontRunner at Santa Anita by 7 3/4 lengths at the same distance as the 1 1/16-mile Juvenile. Trained by Mick Ruis, this 9-5 favorite hasn’t even been tested. Baffert, who has Solomini at 6-1, said he would be happy just running second. Free Drop Billy, from trainer Dale Romans, seems to be the best from the East. He won his last race, the Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland, by four lengths.

Turf (4:37 p.m.)

Highland Reel won this 1 1/2-mile race last year, and he’s back but not the favorite, despite winning two of five races this year. He’s the third choice at 5-1. The lukewarm favorite at 7-2 was the Irish-bred Ulysses, but he was scratched Friday night on the advice of veterinarians. He had won three of six this year, and in his last race, the prestigious Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly in France, he finished third. Trainer Brown is always dangerous on the turf, and he sends forward Beach Patrol at 4-1. This 4-year-old colt has two wins in six starts. The wins were his last two races, including the Arlington Million.

Racing at Del Mar

The first feature on Friday’s non-Breeders’ Cup card was the $200,000 Damascus Stakes over seven furlongs, which was won by Americanize. Callaghan was the trainer, and Rafael Bejarano was the jockey. He won by 2 1/4 lengths over favorite Mr. Hinx. Americanize paid $12, $6.20 and $3.60.

The $200,000 Golden State Juvenile Fillies, also at seven furlongs, was won by a late-charging One Fast Broad for trainer Ruis and jockey Corey Nakatani. Spiced Perfection, owned in part by my colleague Mike Tierney, finished second by a length. One Fast Broad paid $10.40, $4.60, $3.60.

In the 1 3/4 mile $200,000 Marathon Stakes, Destin went by Infobedad to win by 1 3/4 lengths. Destin paid $6, $4.20, $2.80 for winning connections of Todd Pletcher and Velazquez.

Belvoir Bay won the five-furlong Ken Maddy Stakes on the turf in the nightcap.

Remember, early post is 10:10 a.m. Saturday.

Jeffrey Nahill’s spot DM play

10TH RACE: No. 7 The Tabulator (20-1)

Yes, I am going against the likely biggest favorite of the day in Bolt D’Oro, the local horse owned and trained by Ruis. He is the most-probable winner of the day, but the Tabulator is also a perfect 3-for-3 in the Midwest for trainer Larry Rivelli. Again looking for a big upset. I suggest exactas with Bolt d'Oro on top of the Tabulaor; Solomini and U S Navy Flag might pay well as a backup.

Friday’s result: Good Bye Greg didn’t take to the dirt in the first race and finished fifth.

Ed Burgart’s LA spot play

EIGHTH RACE: No. 4, Strawfinders Jessee (2-1)

She exits the best races and earned a strong 99 Trackmaster speed figure in her last fifth-place Grade I outing. Mare won three times last year and fits the restricted allowance conditions perfectly.

AMERICANIZE disputed the pace three deep, shook clear entering the stretch, turned back the bid of MR. HINX and increased his advantage. The latter was squeezed at the start, quickly moved into contention four wide, loomed large entering the stretch, flattened during the drive and was all out to hold the place, following the race MR. HINX was unsaddled on the turn and was vanned off. LOOSE ON THE TOWN settled in hand three wide within striking distance, got through toward the inside entering the stretch, churned on but settled for the minor award. KOBE'S BACK came away a step slow, tucked in to save ground leaving the chute while unhurried at the tail of the field, angled out six wide leaving the turn and improved position. GOOD BYE GREG contested the pace along the inside to the stretch and wilted. LEADING SCORE attended the pace off of the inside, shifted out a bit entering the stretch, but lacked a response when called upon.

DABSTER tracked four wide, came under a ride midway through the turn, reeled in CITY OF LIGHT inside the sixteenth marker and kicked away. CITY OF LIGHT broke inwardly bumping PRIME ISSUE at the start, disputed the pace with that one, opened clear leaving the turn, faltered in the final sixteenth, was unable to go on with the winner and was all out to hold the place. MIDNIGHT PLEASURE was unhurried along the inside, was roused with three furlongs to run, circled into the stretch seven wide and was making up ground. MESA SKY was allowed to settle, tucked in to save ground, shifted out entering the stretch, kept on between rivals and improved position. SIR SAMSON was restless in the gate, came away a step slow, moved into contention five wide, but flattened between runners in the drive. CAMINO DE ESTRELLA settled off of the inside, angled out six wide leaving the turn and finished with a mild improvement between horses. PRIME ISSUE was bumped at the start, set the pressured pace along the inside through the turn, but tired entering the stretch and faded. NEW KARMA was caught in tight between horses and steadied leaving the chute, angled in to save ground but failed to make headway thereafter. CHIEF OF STAFF was allowed to settle, circled into the stretch seven wide but failed to threaten. DONWORTH was close up off of the inside through the turn and tired. BOY HOWDY contended between horses for five furlongs and dropped out. PROUD ZONING was rank to place, dropped to the tail of the field and showed little thereafter.

DESTIN tracked four wide, moved up to engage INFOBEDAD (ARG) on the final turn, was floated out into the lane, came together with that one a furlong out, shook off that menace and kicked clear in the final yards while moving back in toward the rail. INFOBEDAD (ARG) opened clear to dictate terms well off of the inside, was collared between horses with a half mile to run, dug in when set down on the final turn, drifted out packing DESTIN wide into the lane, continued out and brushed with that one, wandered back toward the inside in the drive and grudgingly gave in. HARD ACES was allowed to settle, made a sweeping move six wide on the final turn, loomed large but flattened entering the stretch and settled for the minor award. NOBLE NICK was close up five wide through the final turn and faltered. ESTRECHADA (ARG) settled in hand, launched his bid between horses, got through entering the stretch but came up empty and faded. GROUND RULES was allowed to settle, tucked in to save ground entering the stretch the first time, took an early run at the leader after the opening mile, but stopped leaving the final turn, eased to the wire but walked off. ARCHANOVA settled saving ground, was put to pressure after the opening mile without response, eased to the wire but walked off. DRESSED IN HERMES was unhurried five wide, was never a factor, eased to the wire but walked off. 23.87 for the opening quarter.

BATTLE OF MIDWAY settled in hand, ranged up five wide to make a bold bid midway through the second turn, poked his head in front a furlong out and proved best following a stiff drive. SHARP AZTECA was away in good order, controlled the tempo off of the inside, fought doggedly through a prolonged drive but was unable to resist the winner. AWESOME SLEW was allowed to settle, angled in to save ground, got through into the lane, tipped to the outside for the final furlong, failed to make headway on the top two, but churned on to earn the show spot. PRACTICAL JOKE was unhurried into stride, tucked in to save ground at once, took closer order on the second turn, angled out entering the stretch for clear sailing and improved position. IRON FIST pulled to contention off of the inside, leveled into stride after a half, shifted out into the stretch, but flattened during the drive.
