Hello, my name is John Cherwa, and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter where you can expect the unexpected.
So I wondered what to write about today. I could review the eight, yes, count them, eight stakes races at Belmont. Or, the seven stakes at Stronach-owned Laurel. Or, the one ungraded Cal-bred stakes at Stronach-owned Santa Anita. (Yes, that’s a shot.)
Or I could talk about going to the theater on Friday night. My wife and I went to see “On Your Feet!,” which is the story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan. I had seen it in New York, but now it’s on its national tour. (If you’re on the aisle, you may end up in a conga line.)
It got me thinking about the best song ever written about horse racing that made it to Broadway, none of which were in “On Your Feet!”
It’s easy as
The clip is from the movie but it debuted on Broadway in 1950. It’s from the musical “Guys and Dolls,” which has a strong gambling undertone to it. It still holds up pretty well. I saw it in Chicago and at the Hollywood Bowl, which you should do whenever that venue does theater.
If you didn’t click on the link and are still wondering, it starts: “I got the horse right here, the name is Paul Revere. And here's a guy that says if the weather's clear, can do. Can do. This guy says the horse can do. If he says the horse can do. Can do. Can do.”
So, it’s three guys all saying they have the winner. Nicely Johnson says it’s Paul Revere. Benny Southstreet calls it for Valentine and Rusty Charlie says it’s Epitaph.
Who wins? We don’t know, but here’s betting it was none of the three.
Got your favorite horse song from Broadway, send it along. Luckily, “Equus” wasn’t a musical. Still troubled by that one.
Santa Anita review
It couldn’t repair the loss of a star 3-year-old colt earlier in the week, but owners Paul and Zillah Reddam, trainer Doug O’Neill and jockey
“This was exciting,” Paul Reddam told Mike Willman of Santa Anita. “We were hoping this would help [shortening up to a sprint and moving to turf] and it did. Going 11/8 miles, he just doesn’t seem to finish. It looks like we’ve found the right thing for him now.
“So now the question is, is it the shortening or the surface, since we did the double switch. We’ll find out I guess. We’ll sprint on the dirt and see if routing was what was making him not as effective as he could be.”
B Squared sire is Square Eddie, who was more of a sprinter.
“Square Eddie will get all of our mares, which is probably in the 30s,” Reddam said. “And maybe just a handful after that. He’s priced ($25,000 stud fee) so that not too many people come to him. It’s kind of an odd strategy but the farm he’s at can only handle so much. If you want to breed to him, great. If you don’t, then you have to beat him.”
Santa Anita preview
The best race on a fairly average card is the third race, the $70,000 Anoakia Stakes for 2-year-old fillies, It’s got only five starters so you wonder if they moved it up in the card to keep it out of the pick six, which starts in the fourth race. Chatty us the 9-5 morning-line favorite. This will be her third race after a second in her debut and then she won her second race by five lengths. Main competition will come from

BLESSED UNION angled in and settled inside, went between foes on the second turn and three deep into the stretch and lacked the needed late kick. CONFORMATION saved ground stalking the pace, was in tight into the second turn, came out into the stretch then lacked the needed response toward the inside. POLISHED settled inside then outside a rival, came out off the rail on the second turn and three deep into the stretch and could not offer the necessary late bid four wide on the line. TEMPLE PRINCESS a bit slow to begin, angled in and settled inside then a bit off the rail, went three wide on the second turn and five wide into the stretch and also could not offer the needed late kick. RAG TOP stalked three deep then outside a rival, went three wide again on the second turn and into the stretch and did not rally. SUDDEN LIGHT close up stalking the pace a bit off the rail to the stretch, weakened in the final furlong. ALL NET saved ground stalking the pace, steadied off heels into the second turn, continued inside and also weakened. HARMONY VICTORY broke a bit slowly, settled a bit off the rail then inside, continued just off the inside on the second turn, came out in the stretch and was not a threat.
