Racing! Justify retires, Jon White looks at his legacy

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we wish Justify well in his new career.

The big, but not surprising, news is obviously the retirement of Justify. The move had been telegraphed for the past couple of weeks and I think most people figured it out when he was set to parade at Del Mar. On Wednesday, it was announced that the injury to his left front ankle makes a fall campaign an impossibility. So, after six races, we have the first undefeated Triple Crown champion.

Saturday, at about 3:45 p.m., will be your last chance to see him in California. Santa Anita had a crowd of more than 17,000 when Justify paraded there.

Mike Smith will also be signing autographs between noon and 1 p.m. Hopefully, that’s not his whip hand, because it will be tired. And Smith is so generous with his time it’s difficult to believe he will get up and leave people in line. If you’ve never met him, he’s just as nice as he appears.

It’s expected that Justify’s breeding rights will be sold to Coolmore for around $75 million. So, let’s do the math. It’s said his initial stud fee will be $150,000. He can easily cover 200 mares a year. He’ll cover more but not all will produce live foals. That get’s us to $30 million in stud fees. Now, there are expenses but $30 million will cover that. And based on the quality of his progeny, his fee could go up.

Yeah, you can see why they didn’t want to risk anything with this colt.

It does make you appreciate people such as the connections at Juddmonte Farms who let Arrogate run as 4-year-old, even though it didn’t end as well as all had hoped.

The math just doesn’t work for a Triple Crown winner to keep racing past the age of 3. Too bad in a struggling sport in desperate need of superstars.

Here’s the story we wrote about Justify’s retirement with quotes from the principals. Just click here.

Jon White looks at Justify’s legacy

We asked our resident racing historian, Jon White, to look at how history will judge Justify.

“That Justify had only six lifetime starts no doubt is going to be viewed as a negative vis-a-vis his standing among the all-time greats in the eyes of many. That he never raced against older horses, unlike fellow recent Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, also will be held against Justify by many. American Pharoah did face older horses in his final career start when he put an exclamation point on his racing career with a 6 1/2-length victory in the Breeders' Cup Classic.

“On the other hand, it is a plus for Justify that he retires from racing with an aura of invincibility. It's also to Justify's credit that he managed to accomplish as much as he did in a relatively short period of time. The ride he took racing on from his debut victory at Santa Anita on Feb. 18 to his Belmont Stakes triumph on June 9 was extraordinary. He became the first Triple Crown winner who did not race at 2. He was the first Kentucky Derby winner who did not start at 2 since Apollo in 1882. He also broke the record for defeating the most total starters in the three Triple Crown races. Justify beat a total of 35 other starters in the three races, breaking the record of 32 set by War Admiral in 1937.

“Of this country's 13 Triple Crown winners, the only one besides Justify to not race after the Belmont Stakes was Count Fleet. Count Fleet was retired after he rapped an ankle during his 25-length tour de force in the 1943 Belmont. Despite not racing after the Belmont, Count Fleet ranked No. 5 on the BloodHorse magazine's list of the Top 100 Racehorses of the 20th Century, behind only No. 1 Man o' War, No. 2 Secretariat, No. 3 Citation and No. 4 Kelso.

“But while both Justify and Count Fleet were retired after the Belmont, Count Fleet's body of work certainly was much more robust than Justify's. Count Fleet won a total of 16 races compared to just six for Justify. Count Fleet was the 2-year-old male champion. Justify did not even race at 2.

“It is clear that Justify was ‘a phenomenal talent,’ as Bob Baffert said after the colt won the Santa Anita Derby in only his third lifetime start. But many understandably will downgrade Justify to some extent for not racing more than he did when trying to determine where he belongs among the sport's all-time greats.”

Del Mar review

There was a decent-sized upset in the rare Wednesday stakes race at Del Mar. Beach View had a great rail-saving trip, which can be important in a 1 ½ mile race, to win the Grade 3 $100,000 Cougar II Handicap.

He beat the heavily favored Hoppertunity by a widening 4 ¾ lengths. Beach View paid $20.00, $5.80 and $3.80. Full of Luck finished third.

“He was 0-for-2 on the dirt, but one of them was the first race of his career and the other was the Tokyo City Cup, where he ran the best number of his life,” said Leonard Powell, the winning trainer. “I thought we would be a bit closer to the pace, but [jockey] Rafael [Bejarano] made the right call. We’ll see how he comes back. … We have options with him.”

Bejarano talked about the easy trip he had.

“My horse has speed, but we came away from there nice and easy and he was relaxed, so I took a little hold,” Bejarano said. “My position was good throughout. Then coming for home, I got through inside and he went. He likes the distance. It’s good for him.”

Beach View’s next race could be the Del Mar Handicap on Aug. 18.

Del Mar preview

Thursday’s card at Del Mar isn’t as good as Wednesday, which included a graded stakes race, and the field sizes are shrinking back a little but all is still good at the track. Overall handle is up at Del Mar, although on-site attendance was down on opening day and the on-site handle is about the same.

Thursday’s eight-race card starts at 2 p.m. Five of the races are claimers and there are three races (the last three) are just for Cal-breds.

The feature is the seventh, a one mile allowance/optional claimer on the turf for fillies and mares 3 and up. It’s carries a purse of $62,000.

X S Gold is the 5-2 favorite for trainer James Cassidy and jockey Kent Desormeaux. She’s won one of her eight lifetime starts but finished second in her last two races, allowance races at Santa Anita.

Bob Ike’s DMR pick of the day

SEVENTH RACE: No. 7 Ragazza Di Vola (7-2)

A five-time winner facing a group of one-time winners, let's go with this Golden Gate shipper from the good John Martin stable. She circled wide on the far turn but didn't follow through in her most recent but perhaps she can return to her earlier form with a change in venue.

Wednesday’s result: Tomasino (2-1) got bet down from his morning line but could only manage a non-threatening third vs. $8,000 claimers.
