Racing! Hey, Del Mar, you’ve got some splainin’ to do

Hello, my name is John Cherwa, welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as I’m trying to figure out how little work I can get away with over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Last weekend and this, Del Mar decided to honor, as it has in the last couple of years, film stars of the past with races named for Bob Hope and Betty Grable.

The Bob Hope Stakes was run last Saturday for 2-year-olds over 7 furlongs. It used to be the Hollywood Prevue Stakes, when there was a Hollywood Park.

Last Sunday was the Betty Grable Stakes, for Cal-bred fillies and mares 3 and up, and also over 7 furlongs. It used to be the Cat’s Cradle Stakes. (Wonder if Del Mar considered renaming it the Cat Stevens or Yusuf Islam Stakes. Uh, no.)

Today is the Desi Arnaz Stakes, which used to be the Moccasin Stakes, for 2-year-old fillies over, yes, 7 furlongs. And dare we say, the losers will have some splainin’ to do.

And on Sunday is the Cary Grant Stakes for 3-year-old Cal-breds over, of course, 7 furlongs. With all due respect to Cal-breds, Cary Grant gets a race for Cal-breds, while Arnaz get the one with open company? Really?

Now, you can’t argue Hope and Grable as big-time stars. They even starred in a couple of movies together, both in 1938. There was College Swing, which if you really want to watch is available on YouTube, just click right here. It’s really a vehicle for George Burns and Gracie Allen, but Hope and Grable have big parts.

And then there is Give Me a Sailor, which has Hope and Grable as the co-leads. There’s also Martha Raye, who in the trailer, is touted as having “gorgeous gams,” a phrase that will get you a visit to HR around most workplaces nowadays. If you want to watch (movie: just click here) or (trailer: just click here)

OK, we’re off topic.

Now you can understand Arnaz having a race named after him, because he lived in Del Mar for a long time and regularly attended the races. So that’s legit. But wouldn’t he be the guy that gets the Cal-bred race because he was Cal-living-at-Del-Mar? And, without Lucille Ball, a whole lot fewer of us would have ever heard of him, much like what the reputation of Cal-breds might be without California Chrome.

But it’s Grant, who has two more Oscar nominations than the other three combined (2-0-0-0), that gets a race for 3-year-old Cal-breds. In fact, Grant is more associated with Hollywood Park, for whom they named their original Pavilion and then one in the casino.

Hey, we’re just having fun with Del Mar. Rumor has it that Arnaz was quite the character around the track. I’ve been promised stories that no doubt would not be suitable for a family newsletter. So stay tuned.

Del Mar racing

Dream Tree will be the likely favorite in Saturday’s running of the $100,000 Desi Arnaz Stakes. It’s her second start after winning by a nose in a maiden special weight at Santa Anita on Oct. 27. She’s 2-1 on the morning line for trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Drayden Van Dyke, who seems to be getting a steady share of mounts from Baffert. She’ll be breaking from the six in the five-horse field.

Midnight Bisou, who was on the wrong end of the nose photo (wonder how long that same photo would take at Del Mar?) against Dream Tree is at 3-1 for trainer Bill Spawr and new jockey Rafael Bejarano.

Tiago Pereira was Bisou’s jockey but got off to ride Ms Bad Behavior, who he has ridden three ties including a win last time out. This filly is at 5-2 for Richard Baltas, who also has Secret Spice in the race.

“She’s had some time between races, she’s trained very well and the last couple of works have been very good, so this seemed like a logical spot for her,” Balgtas told Del Mar publicity about Ms Bad Behavior.

Steph Being Steph, who drew the rail, was going to be scratched Saturday morning.

Bob Ike’s DM pick of the day

NINTH RACE: No. 4 Bolitar (5-1)

Comebacker from high-percentage Peter Miller barn has been sidelined since April but is capable of firing fresh over a track he likes and has a steady seven-day work pattern for his return. He faced open company when last seen but returns in a restricted $16,000 seller and is entered not to be claimed off the seven-month layoff, which is a positive sign.

Friday Result: Mercer Island was scratched from the third race.

Bob Ike is a Partner/VP of Horsebills.com and the proprietor of BobIkePicks.com (full-card picks, 3 Best Plays and betting strategy).

Ed Burgart’s LA pick of the day

FIFTH RACE: No. 6 Twisted Sifter (9-5)

He was steadily bumped at intervals of last fifth-place try after a sluggish start in a fast race and now moves to the outside post. He was a strong third from the rail post two races back and has earned two consecutive strong Trackmaster speed figures.

BEAU SQUARE stalked three deep, came four wide into the stretch and rallied under some urging to gain the lead in deep stretch. BATIQUITOS saved ground stalking the pace, steadied in tight midway on the turn, waited off heels leaving the turn and into the stretch, got through inside past midstretch and edged a rival for the place. BOLD AT NIGHT stalked the pace inside, bid along the rail leaving the turn, took the lead into the stretch, inched away just off the fence in midstretch, could not quite match the winner late and just lost second. MIKENJANE a step slow into stride, pulled between horses chasing the pace, came out leaving the turn and four wide into the stretch and was outfinished. CANDY RULER stalked three deep on the backstretch and turn, came three wide into the stretch and was outfinished. DESERT MADAM settled a bit off the rail then inside, saved ground on the turn and lacked the needed rally in the lane. IRISH AND LUCKY sped to the early lead, inched clear off the rail, angled in some on the turn, came three deep into the stretch and weakened in the final furlong. TRAP QUEEN close up stalking the pace between horses on the backstretch and turn, had little left for the stretch.

CELEBRATE LIFE broke a bit slowly, was sent between horses then dueled between foes, inched away and angled in on the turn, kicked clear along the inside in the stretch and held gamely under left handed urging. TASTE'S LEGEND stalked between horses then outside, came five wide into the stretch, drifted in but closed willingly to just miss three deep on the line. CLIFTON BEACH stalked between horses then outside a rival on the turn, came three deep into the stretch and finished willingly between the top pair late. BELOVED HOLIDAY a step slow to begin, settled off the rail, angled in on the turn, came out into the stretch and found his best stride late. CAPTAIN WALKER had speed between horses then stalked a bit off the rail, went around a rival leaving the turn, found the rail into the stretch and lacked the needed late kick. BEYOND WONDERFUL angled in and pressed the pace three deep, stalked outside a rival on the turn and weakened in the drive. CALIFORNIUM chased a bit off the rail then between rivals on the turn, came three wide into the stretch and lacked a further response.

EIGHTY AND SUNNY dropped back between foes then settled off the rail to the stretch and failed to menace. CLOSE TO MIDNIGHT settled three deep then off the rail to the stretch and was not a threat. ATTICISM went up inside to duel for the lead, stalked along the rail on the turn and gave way in the stretch.
