Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we get to lots of things at Churchill Downs and Santa Anita and a handicapping lesson from Rob Henie.
Before we get to the Breeders’ Cup, apologies are in order for getting the Friday newsletter out late. Sometimes we have technical problems and that’s what happened. Thanks to all of you who emailed me asking where it was. Good to know we are part of your daily routine.
OK, on to Day 1 of the Breeders’ Cup. (Forgive any typos as the hands are shaking from being in the coldest 40 degrees I’ve been in for a while.)
Juvenile Turf Sprint: Bulletin shot out of the gate and was never headed in winning the 5 ½ furlong race by 2 ¾ lengths. The turf course was listed as good but the two days of rain may have affected the ability of some horses to make up ground making it easy for Bulletin to win. He paid $10.60 to win. Chelsea Cloisters was second and So Perfect was third. “Fantastic way to start,” said winning trainer Todd Pletcher. “He broke really well and was sharp. He took it to them the whole way. It was a big race. We wanted to leave there running. He finished up nicely.”
Juvenile Fillies Turf: Remember what we said about getting the lead in Friday’s turf races? Well, Newspaperofrecord went to front and stayed there to win the one-mile race by 6 3/4 lengths. Only in this case, it was clear Newspaperofrecord was the best horse. He paid $3.20 to win. East was second and Stellar Agent was third. It was trainer Chad Brown’s third straight win in this race. “I got a perfect trip,” said winning jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. “She broke good and pulled me to the lead. I just held her together and she relaxed. When I asked her, she exploded for home. It was the easiest Breeders’ Cup I ever won.” (Note to readers: The filly didn’t actually explode, otherwise the tone of this newsletter would be much different. The filly is fine.)
Juvenile Fillies: Trainer
“I had a good trip, but she never did feel quite right,” Prat said. “She wasn’t running smooth. I don’t know if she didn’t like the track or if it was an off day.” Callaghan was also searching for answers. “She broke a little flat footed and the rider had to use her a little bit early,” Callaghan said. “After that she had a pretty good trip but it just did not seem to happen today. It’s hard to know [about the surface]. It is the first time she has run over this sort of track.”
Juvenile Turf: This race made you feel like you were back in California with an interminably long inquiry after Line of Duty bumped Uncle Benny in deep stretch. It was the first Breeders’ race where the speed didn’t hold up. He won by a half-length and paid $9.00 to win. “It’s lovely to be here,” said winning trainer Charlie Appleby. “[Jockey] William [Buick] gave him a great ride. He managed to get him wide and come with a clear run. It’s great for the team and especially [owner] Sheik Mohammad.”
Juvenile: It was a great run by Game Winner to take this 1 1/16-mile race. He got off slow, had to run wide and the got bumped in the stretch, but he managed to win by 2 ¼ lengths. Now, it’s true that the top six horses in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile futures pool didn’t run in this race. But it’s hard to imagine Game Winner not beating most of all of them with his gritty performance on Friday.

Weekly handicapping lesson
Here’s our weekly 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 third race at Santa Anita. The floor is yours, Rob.
“This is an optional claimer at five furlongs. Much of the wagering menu Saturday, focuses on horizontal wagers, leaving us to find the most logical contenders, whether it be a single, or two, three, four runners to secure a race, keeping the wager alive. One of our favorite angles in certain races, is to use contrary running styles, especially if only wanting to go two deep. With this mentality, we’re seeking to find the sharpest runner from two points on the track, on the front end, and then, the most extreme opposite, a deep closer, in case things fall apart on the front end. We’ll start with top selection NAUGHTY SOPHIE (#1). We always preach the benefits of main-track speed moved to the turf course, where 22.2 splits become 21.2, over a surface which produces conveyor belt effects. Here’s ‘super feed’ trainer
“Hot / Cold Race Trends: none
“Win Contenders (order of preference): 1-4
“X Out Runners (eliminating on the win end): 8
“9 Favorite Trip - Conner is a nice fit off the layoff, good at relaxing his runners before finishing down the lane.
“2 Time and Chance - Not the right spot off the freshening.

Santa Anita review
The Breeders’ Cup didn’t have the only Juvenile race on Friday. At Santa Anita they unsealed $200,000 for the Golden State Juvenile Fillies for Cal-breds going seven furlongs. The winner was Give Me a Hint, who should have given bettors plenty of hints by winning her last two races by a combined 15 ¾ lengths.
The filly drew the rail and jockey Evin Roman kept her in fourth with about three furlongs to go. Then he angled her out and went four-wide at the top of the stretch and then breezed to a 2 1/4-length win. She paid $13.20, $5.80 and $4.00. Mucho Unusual was second and Hotitude was third.
“I trained the sire and this filly’s dam, so it makes it fun,” said winning trainer Bob Hess. “Mentally she’s a cool filly, she does things right. We thought she would run big today.”
In the other stakes, the $70,000 Lure Stakes for horses going a mile on the turf, Kencumin won by a half-length over Kenjisstorm. Kencumin paid $12.00, $6.00 and $3.60 for trainer Peter Eurton and jockey Brice Blanc.
“He relaxed beautifully for me,” Blanc told Mike Willman of Santa Anita. “I asked him to pick it up midway around the far turn and he responded nicely. Pete’s guys told me this horse comes to play and he sure did.”
Santa Anita preview
You got to get there early as live racing starts at 10:30 a.m. They have to do that to get the 11 races in. There are four turf races and two stakes, in addition to betting all the Breeders’ Cup races.
But before we get to the races, I have to comment on the brilliant shell game that Santa Anita is playing with their Rainbow Pick Six jackpot. The track has guaranteed a $2 million pay day on Saturday. The thinking is the purse will lure more betters and it will also lure more combinations and the chance of a single winning ticket is even less. Santa Anita doesn’t want anyone to hit the single ticket on Saturday.
All of which will lead to a massive last day mandatory payout that will bring in a gazillion dollars because every bettor knows that almost all their bets will be overlays. If you like horizontal betting, you would be a fool not to take a big shot on a mandatory payout day. This worked terrifically at Gulfstream in their Winter meet and track officials are trying to find the same magic here.
To be clear, I’m not saying there is anything wrong with this, in fact, it’s very smart. So, I’m kind of hoping it goes to the last day so we can see how much additional revenue can be gained.
The big stakes race on Saturday is the $200,000 Golden State Juvenile for Cal-bred 2-year-olds going seven furlongs. Your 8-5 favorite is Cruel Intention for Baffert and Roman. He won his only race by 5 ½ lengths. Second favorite is Galilean, at 9-5, for
The other stakes is the $100,000 Sen. Ken Maddy Stakes for fillies and mares going 6 ½ furlongs down the hillside turf course. Storm the Hill is the 7-2 favorite. He’s only one for seven this year but is four of six lifetime at Santa Anita, including winning the Wilshire Stakes in June.
Here are the field sizes, in order: 8, 9, 10, 7, 9, 10, 12, 10, 12, 8, 11.

Bob Ike’s SA play of the day
EIGHTH RACE: No. 6 Painting Corners (4-1)
Sharp filly from the Peter Miller stable has rattled off two straight while showing improved ability to relax early. She should again get first run on likely pacesetter Go On Mary and be in the right spot turning for home. Tab for the hat trick.
Friday’s result: Secretary at War was in position but couldn’t muster a closing kick and finished sixth.

Ed Burgart’s LA play of the day
THIRD RACE: No. 5 El Koreano (2-1)
He is the speed of the field and gets a rider upgrade from inexperienced Gerardo Vera to accomplished veteran Christian Aragon. In his last third-place try at this 870-yard distance, he dueled for the lead until lugging out badly midway on the turn. He doesn’t face many speed foes in this field and has won 40 percent of his 10 starts this year.
