Racing! Accelerate overcomes a lot to win Awesome Again

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we watched some great racing at Santa Anita.

You couldn’t help but be impressed by Accelerate’s win in the Grade 1 $300,000 Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita. He was acting up in the gate. Broke a step slow. Got pushed wide on the first turn. And in the end, put away a very good horse in West Coast to win by 2 ¼ lengths.

He’s easily the favorite for the Breeders’ Cup Classic on Nov. 3.

I wrote a full story on the race for online and print. You can read it here.

Now, if you are worried about a tough race taking too much out of him, his connections aren’t.

“I’m not really concerned about this taking anything out of him,” said trainer John Sadler. “We kind of backed him up a bit from 1 ¼ miles so he’s not squeezed too dry. If everything comes out of this good, it’ll be guns ahead.”

Kosta Hronis, who owns the horse with his brother Pete, agreed.

“Maybe a race like this is better for him than what happened in the Pacific Classic when he sort of just ran free,” Hronis said. “Maybe the gutsy performance is better for him.”

Accelerate paid $2.60, $2.10 and $2.10. West Coast ran a very respectable second and Isotherm was third. The remainder of the field was Prime Attraction, The Lieutenant and Shades of Victory.

Santa Anita’s new program

I need your opinion. Santa Anita changed its paper program this meeting, going to a magazine size and eliminating the one that you could easily put in your pocket. The thinking with the new program is that you can still fold it, although, I have to say, it’s not that convenient. Also gone is the glossy cover. The cost is $2.50.

Now, the track also is introducing a program that has past performances for 50 cents more. Obviously, it has to be magazine size to get all the data in or you have to stack it like we do with our newsletter entries when viewed on a phone.

So, what do you think? Send me your brief thoughts. Put Santa Anita program in the subject field and make sure and leave your name. You can send to johnacherwa@gmail.com.

American Pharoah review

Game Winner won the inaugural running of the Grade 1 $300,000 American Pharoah Stakes, formerly known as the FrontRunner. The Bob Baffert trained colt set himself up on the outside of Rowayton and went to the front on the turn and won by 4 ½ lengths.

Game Winner paid $2.60, $2.20 and $2.10. Gunmetal Gray was second and Rowayton was third in the five-horse field of 2-year-olds going 1 1/16 miles.

“He came out of the Del Mar Futurity really well,” said Gary West, who along with his wife Mary owns the horse. “He’d been training well and we thought he’d like two turns. His family all like a mile and a quarter, but you never know until they do it.

“We’re looking forward to the Breeders’ Cup for sure. … I’ve been in the horse business about 40 years. All days are not like this one.”

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer was not happy with Gunmetal Grey’s second-place finish.

“No excuse for running second,” Hollendorfer said. “I don’t know yet whether we’ll go to Churchill Downs for the Breeders’ Cup.”

Chandelier review

Bellafina was just as impressive winning Sunday’s Grade 1 $300,000 Chandelier Stakes as she was winning the Del Mar Debutante. The winning margin in the 1 1/16 mile race for 2-year-old fillies was 6 ½ lengths.

Simon Callaghan made some adjustments to his filly including taking off the blinkers. She was having trouble switching leads but that seemed fixed on Saturday.

“I think the big key [Saturday] was to see her relax,” Callaghan said. And going two turns was very important. We took the blinkers off. It was a decision I thought would benefit her.

“When she had the blinkers on, she was a little more tense. … She switched leads and did everything right, and she dominated.”

She paid $3.80, $2.80 and $2.10. Vibrance was second followed by Brill, Der LU and Del Mar May. Flavien Prat was the jockey.

Rodeo Drive review

You have to be a fan of Vasilika. She was claimed for $40,000 nine races ago and by winning the Grade 1 $300,000 Rodeo Drives Stakes has won eight of them. She had to work to win, though, coming from second at the top of the stretch of the 1 ¼ turf race for fillies and mares to win by ½ length.

Now this was a “win and your in” Breeders’ Cup race. The problem is she wasn’t nominated so her connections would still have to pay the late fee of $100,000. However, the entry fees would be waived.

“We’ll probably talk about [the Breeders’ Cup],” Hollendorfer said. “We’re not nominated but I think it’s feasible to nominate her. We’ll have to do our homework and see if we’re going to do that or not.”

Dan Gatto, a part-owner of Vasilika, explains her turnaround from claimer to Grade 1 winner this way.

“The thing that Jerry has really done well with her is her weight,” Gatto said. “She was the highest weight in the field [Saturday] at 1,000 pounds and that’s all to his credit. When we first got her off the claim she needed the weight put on. He knew what to do with the right nutrients and therapy. The horse, of course, gets the credit but Jerry is right there getting credit because he’s done just a great job.”

Vasilika paid $5.20, $3.00 and $2.40. Paved was second and Cambodia was third. Prat was the winning jockey.

Santa Anita preview

When the weekend is over, Santa Anita will have run seven stakes races, five of them Grade 1 and six of them graded. Not a bad opening weekend. But, after this there is only one more Grade 1, although they have a representative number of stakes each weekend until racing goes to Del Mar.

The track has packed both its Sunday stakes in the middle of the program in the fifth and six races. It’s a nine-race card beginning at 12:30 p.m. There are four turf races.

The marquee race is the Grade 1 $300,000 Zenyatta Stakes for fillies and mares going 1 1/16 miles. It’s a six-horse field with Eclipse Award winning Abel Tasman as the 2-5 morning-line favorite. This will be her 10th straight Grade 1. She won her last two, the Ogden Phipps at Belmont and the Personal Ensign at Saratoga. She’s trained by Baffert and ridden by Mike Smith.

La Force is the 4-1 second choice for Paddy Gallagher and Drayden Van Dyke. She finished second to Unique Bella in her last two starts. Post time is around 2:42 p.m.

The other stake is Grade 2 $200,000 John Henry Turf Championship for horses going 1 ¼ miles. Remember, this is a race that starts low on the hill and crosses the dirt near the start. Fashion Business is the 2-1 favorite for Phil D’Amato and Prat. He won the Del Mar Handicap in his last start.

Liam the Charmer for Michael McCarthy and Tyler Gaffalione is the second favorite at 7-2. He won his last start in an allowance by a nose but 11th in the Del Mar Handicap in his previous race. Post is around 3:14 p.m.

Here are the field sizes, in order: 7, 6, 7, 10 (4 also eligible), 6, 7, 7, 8, 10 (4 AE).

Bob Ike’s SA play of the day

SEVENTH RACE: No. 2 Amers (7-2)

NoCal shipper from the high-percentage Jonathan Wong stable faded when sent long on turf at Golden Gate last time but is much more suited to the main track. She is proven over dirt and figures to fire a good vs. these mid-grade sophomore claimers.

Saturday’s result: Omaha Beach was bet heavily, fired a good shot but couldn't quite get to the winner when beaten a nose.

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

Ed Burgart LA play of the day

THIRD RACE: No. 2 Momma Tried (5-2)

This six-year-old gelding has an impressive work tab while preparing for his first start in 11 months and he showed his ability to fire fresh when victorious after a nine-month layoff last year. In addition, he is entered not to be claimed while landing a top local distance rider in Vinnie Bednar. Bonmont, the 8-5 morning-line favorite, has a tendency to lug out around the far turn.

PULPIT RIDER broke a bit slowly, settled just off the rail, went around a rival into the stretch and improved position between foes late. PURSUING THE DREAM (IRE) chased between horses, bobbled on the dirt crossing, came out three wide into the stretch and lacked the needed rally. SAPPHO (IRE) off a step slowly, settled off the rail then inside on the hill and into the stretch, steadied when crowded off heels in midstretch and lacked the needed rally. SUSPICIOUS SPOUSE dueled between horses then outside the winner leaving the hill and weakened in the drive. STEPH BEING STEPH had good early speed and dueled inside, stalked leaving the hill, came out a bit in upper stretch then drifted inward in midstretch and also weakened. MAY GIRL (GB) prompted the pace four wide then stalked three deep, came four wide into the stretch and had little left for the drive. Rail on hill at zero.
