Racing! Bellafina wins easily in Del Mar Debutante

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we offer up a special Sunday handicapping lesson.

We might have seen a new star on Saturday at Del Mar when Bellafina won the Grade 1 $300,000 Del Mar Debutante. She ran squarely with Mother Mother down the backstretch, accelerated when she hit the quarter pole and won by 4 ¼ lengths.

There is a longer description in the story I did for the web and print editions. Just click here.

Trainer Simon Callaghan said that this was the best filly he’s ever trained, which is saying something considering he trained Eclipse Award winner Abel Tasman, before she won the Eclipse. Callaghan was Abel Tasman’s first trainer but when an interest in the horse was sold to the China Horse Club things got sticky. In her first race with new interests they couldn’t find the China Horse Club silks and the jockey wore the old silks. Callaghan was fired and the filly went to Bob Baffert.

None of that really matters today if this filly is as good as he thinks.

“She broke sharp and was really into the bit today,” Callaghan said after the race. “It was a really good performance. The race went pretty much as we thought it might.

“It was really nice to see her show her class at the end. I told [owner] Kaleem [Shah] this is the best filly I’ve trained. … When you’ve got fillies like this, you just want to develop them. When you can [win] these races, it’s obviously a real added bonus. We’ve always felt she was really, really good. … I think she’s just going to keep getting better.”

Bellafina paid $6.60, $3.20 and $3.20. Mother Mother was second Boujie Girl was third. The favorite, Brill, was fourth in the five-horse race.

Bonus handicapping lesson

Here’s a bonus contribution from Rob Henie of the WCHR (West Coast Handicapping Report) and the ECHR (East Coast Handicapping Report). The thinking is if you can know and understand the strategies, it will make you a better handicapper.

Today’s lesson is from the first race at Del Mar. Take it away, Rob.

“The opener is an optional claimer at 5 ½ furlongs. Late in the meet, we can often rationalize with regard to when a horse is well meant, and/or doing so well, the connections are trying to squeeze another race in before the meet ends. Top selection is LAKERBALL (#7). Coming off a maiden win, Doug O’Neill has multiple spots he can choose from. He could easily have waited for Los Al, or, the first condition book up at Santa Anita. Instead, it’s obvious he’s simply trying to get this one back over a track he obviously likes, while, no question, doing well right now. By doing so, he’s accepting the fact that this is an optional condition, often not an easy task off a maiden win, and he’s bypassing the state-bred condition. He’s running against open company, thus, many signs pointing to confident connections, trying to squeeze in one more seaside race before things move back up the freeway to LA. Also, interesting is the fact Doug also has PALLADIUM (#4) in here, claiming him for $32,000, running in an optional claimer today, not to be claimed. He’ll likely run both here, understanding he’s got two runners with two different styles, the top pick on or near the lead, and this one from further back, offering contrary running styles to capture this event.

“Hot / Cold Race Trends: none

“Win Contenders (order of preference): 7-4

“X Out Runners (eliminating on the win end): none

“Negative Notes:

“1 Six Pack Gal - We never like to see a trainer overestimate their charge, winning a debut but then placing too high, allowing their runner to lose confidence.

“5 Edna - Won her debut nicely two weeks before Del Mar kicked off, then missed most of the Meet. Prefer to give the effort back.

“TOP PICK: LAKERBALL (#7 4-1 Delgadillo)

“SECOND CHOICE: PALLADIUM (#4 7-2 Bejarano)”

Del Mar review

The other stakes race on Saturday was the Grade 2 $200,000 John C. Mabee Stakes for fillies and mares going 1 1/8 miles on the turf. Flavien Prat, who won the Debutante, also won this race aboard Vasilika by 1 ¼ lengths.

Vasilika, now a winner of seven of eight starts this year, took a major jump in class by taking this race. She bided her time mid-pack and around the far turn started to edge to the side, looking for an opening. She made her way to third at the top of the stretch before edging past the leaders and holding off late-running Cambodia.

“We walked over with a lot of confidence,” said winning trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. “We respect Cambodia and Vladimir Cerin’s horse (Fahan Mura) but we thought we had a really good chance to win. She’s been training so well and doing so well.”

Vasilika paid $10.40, $4.20 and $3.40. Cambodia was second and Fahan Mura was third.

Del Mar preview

The penultimate card of the meeting has 10 races and two stakes, both on the turf. First post is 2 p.m. Both stakes favorites are the combination of Peter Miller, leading trainer this meet, and Flavien Prat, fighting Drayden Van Dyke for the identical jockey honor.

The bigger of the two stakes is the Grade 2 $250,000 Del Mar Derby, for horses going 1 1/8 miles on the turf. River Boyne is 5-2 favorite. He has won five of his last six races, which is when he was shifted from the dirt to the turf. He is five of 10 lifetime and has won his last two races.

Ride a Comet is the 7-2 choice, a shipper for trainer Mark Casse. He’ll be ridden by Van Dyke. This will be Ride a Comet’s seventh track in nine races. He has won four of nine. Post is around 5:35 p.m.

The other stakes is the $100,000 Del Mar Juvenile Turf, for 2-year-olds going one mile. Hartel is the 3-1 favorite. He is one of three lifetime, winning his last out. Rijeka is 7-2, for Richard Baltas and Mario Gutierrez. He also won last out, his second race.

The field sizes in order: 7, 9, 9, 8, 10, 10, 10 (1 also eligible), 12, 9, 10 (3 AE).

Bob Ike’s DMR pick of the day

THIRD RACE: No. 8 Nice Ice (6-1)

Sophomore filly from the hot Brian Koriner stable set the pace before settling for second last time but seems much more effective with a target at which to run. She beat morning line favorite A Walk in the Park one race back and will have to do so again but is an attractive gamble at this price.

Saturday’s result: Beau Square ($14.20) closed from well off the pace and kept coming through the land to run down the stubborn runner-up right on the wire in the opener.

Ed Burgart LA play of the day

SEVENTH RACE: No. 4 Trumper (2-1)

He is overdue for a clean trip in his 10th lifetime start and was a much better-than-looked third as the 8-5 favorite in last outing from the outside post where he hopped up and came away slow. Gelding finished nicely in a race where runnerup Zion Zima captured his next start for maiden $12,500. Freighttrain Blues, the 8-5 morning-line favorite, is quicker from the gate than Trumper but backed up during the final 1/16 of last sixth-place try at the same 330-yard distance.

KINDRED pressed the pace three deep, took a short lead in upper stretch, battled outside the runner-up in deep stretch and inched away late under urging.

JOHANSSON settled off the rail, came out four wide into the stretch and edged rivals late for the show. GIVEHERDALUTE stalked off the rail then inside on the turn, came out three deep into the stretch, drifted in through the drive and was edged for third. GLITZNGLAMOUR chased three deep, came four wide into the stretch, angled inward in upper stretch and was edged for a minor award between foes late. CREATIVE CONTESSA a step slow to begin, had speed between horses then dueled a bit off the rail, fought back inside on the turn and in the stretch and weakened late. BEYOND PLEASURE saved ground chasing the pace, continued inside into the stretch and lacked a rally. MAGICAL GRAY had speed four wide then stalked outside, came four wide into the stretch and weakened. SEE THAT KAT broke a bit slowly, went up between foes leaving the backstretch and into the turn, continued a bit off the rail leaving the turn and gave way. SANDONA GIRL stalked off the rail then outside on the turn and had little left for the drive.
