Racing! Hakuna Matata

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as Santa Anita has a couple of 2-year-old stakes winners.

Just a couple of quick items before we get to the results.

--It sure riled up some of you when I wished you a Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Well, here’s the deal, Los Angeles no longer has Columbus Day. It has Indigenous Peoples’ Day. And this is a product of the Los Angeles Times.

Sure, I’ll admit to doing it just to tweak some of you whose humor gene has apparently gone dormant. It would be like me getting all upset because there is no Pulaski Day in Los Angeles.

Growing up in Seminole County, Fla. (at one time home to a harness track, a jai-alai fronton and two dog tracks), we were taught that Juan Ponce de Leon discovered what is now the United States, no doubt so he could race horses at Gulfstream and Hialeah.

So, now that I’ve been called a “moron” and worse and been told I’ve slandered an entire nationality of people, it brings me to my second item.

--On Sunday, it was revealed that Santa Anita was not going to give the stewards free copies of The Daily Racing Form. It was really quite funny, especially given that the stewards found it important enough to put in their weekly minutes.

I asked all of you to give me reasons to do a GoFundMe for either Santa Anita or the stewards. I got a few but not as many replies as normal. A couple were funny, a couple, as usual, were unsigned, a couple were too political, but most of the rest were just a little too mean spirited. So, thanks to all of you who sent me an email, but we’ll file this under “seemed like a good idea at the time.”

Hakuna matata.

Santa Anita review

There were two almost identical stakes at Santa Anita on Monday, both worth $100,000 for 2-year-olds running a mile on the grass. One was for fillies and one for colts and geldings.

Lakerball, the longest shot in the Surfer Girl Stakes, upset heavily favored Summering with a nice run down the stretch. The maiden won by a head.

“We talked in the paddock and it looked like [Tom] Proctor’s horse (Summering) was the speed and we thought maybe we’d be sitting just off of her,” said winning trainer Doug O’Neill. “As it turned out, [jockey Drayden] Van Dyke didn’t go, Mario [Gutierrez] took the lead, was able to save ground and it worked out. It’s great to get the first win for this stud, Lakerville, and we’re happy to have Janie Buss as part-owner. Her sister, Jeanie, is on TV all the time, but Janie does all the charity work for the Lakers and it’s great to have her as a part of this.”

Lakerball paid $69.60, $27.00 and $5.00. Ladyprancealot was second and Summering was third.

“I thought I was gonna be able to angle out there in the lane, but she was kinda leaning in with me and I couldn’t get her out,” said Van Dyke. “Other than that, I thought we had a good trip.”

In the Zuma Beach, for colts and geldings, King of Speed rallied strong through the inside to win by 1 ¼ lengths. He was seventh entering the stretch and then just kept passing horses from the inside and eventually caught the leader.

King of Speed paid $13.40, $4.40 and $3.20. Much Better was second and Rijeka was third.

“He’s a big 2-year-old, no question,” winning jockey Gary Stevens said. “He’s grown into a man from a boy in his last two races. When I first started getting on him, I thought he could be my Futurity horse and I still think he’ll run well on dirt as well. Now that he’s gone two turns a few times and he’s gotten the taste of settling and passing horses, he’s really moved forward.”

Winning trainer Jeff Bonde also expressed confidence.

“He’s getting better every time he goes out there,” Bonde said. “[Monday], Gary sat, waited and this colt did everything right. It couldn’t have worked out any better.”
