Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we get ready for the final day of the Santa Anita fall meeting.
Let’s not waste any time and get right to Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup races.
Filly & Mare Sprint: With five Southern California horses in this race, including the two favorites, you would have thought the chance of a win was pretty good. But it wasn’t. Shamrock Rose, breaking from the 14, just got a head up in a blanket finish of four horses to win the seven-furlong race. She paid $53.80 to win and was followed over the line by Chalon, Anonymity (Richard Mandella), Marley’s Freedom (Bob Baffert) and Golden Mischief. Selcourt, for John Sadler, went to the lead early but faded badly in the stretch to finish 12th. Skye Diamonds (Bill Spawr) was 10th and Miss Sunset (Jeff Bonde) was 14th.
“Was I surprised we won?” asked winning trainer Mark Casse. “It was a tough race, but she’s a good horse. I told [jockey] Irad [Ortiz Jr.] I don't know if she's good enough, but she'll give you everything she has. And, she's good. It goes back to Allen Jerkins, who always said ‘run them when they're good' so we came back in two weeks.”
Marley’s Freedom was the beaten favorite.
“She just didn't get away like she can,” Baffert said. “I am pretty disappointed. And she was pretty wide the whole way. She tried but she was just not good enough today. You have to be real good today and she was not real good. … Didn't bring her A game.”
Turf Sprint: In a stirring stretch duel, Drayden Van Dyke was able to get Stormy Liberal a neck in front of World of Trouble at the wire to win the 5 ½ furlong race. Stormy Liberal, trained by Peter Miller, was the first repeat winner of a Breeders’ Cup race this year. The pair separated themselves from the field with the third-place horse, Disco Partner, more than seven lengths behind them. The 6-year-old paid $16.00 to win.
Miller had two other horses in the race, Conquest Tsunami (11th) and Richard’s Boy (14th).
“The emotions and the highs and lows I have gone through in this past year are indescribable,” Miller said. “I am just thankful to be back here. It is amazing to win this race two years in a row with this horse.”
It was the first Breeders’ Cup win for Van Dyke.
“Stormy Liberal likes to hang on horses and not pass them,” Van Dyke said. “But he got him. It was awesome.”
Dirt Mile: If it wasn’t for bad luck (at least for now), Sadler would have no luck at all as he failed to win his first Breeders’ Cup race in 43 tries. Catalina Cruiser was expected to be his best shot of the four horses entered on Saturday and went off at less than even money. But it was City of Light who dominated, winning by 2 ¾ lengths over Seeking the Soul. Catalina Cruiser was sixth.
It was the first Breeders’ Cup win for Santa Anita based trainer Michael McCarthy, who used to be an assistant for Todd Pletcher. City of Light paid $7.20 to win. Seeking the Soul was second followed by Bravazo, Firenze Fire and Giant Expectations (Peter Eurton). Isotherm (Phil D’Amato) finished ninth.
“I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting for this,” McCarthy said. “I always thought this would be a mismatch. … I thought he would love this racetrack. Backing up to one turn is where his best races were. I thought he would run away and hide and he did just that.”
Van Dyke had no excuses for Catalina Cruiser.
“He ran just fine but he just didn’t run his ‘A’ race,” Van Dyke said. “I think that’s about all I can say.”
Filly & Mare Turf: Chad Brown had five horses in this 1 3/8 mile race so it is little surprise that one of them, Sister Charlie would be the winner. But it was close. Sister Charlie came late to beat Wild Illusion by a neck.
The interesting part of this race was the couple minutes it took for the gate crew to get Wild Illusion, making her first U.S. start after racing in England and France, in the gate. They even resorted to blindfolding the filly, a practice I personally find as just wrong. How would you liked to be pushed and pulled when you can’t see? But, it appeared that scratching wasn’t an option because the horse was 5-2 and, as it turned out, almost won.
Sistercharlie, ridden by John Velazquez, paid $8.60 to win. A Raving Beauty was third.
“She’s all class this horse and she knows where the wire is,” Brown said. “She showed her heart there in the last stages.”
Sprint: Miller did the double again, winning his second race, the second year in a row, with the same horse. Roy H was dominant, winning by 3 ¼ lengths. It was also the first Breeders’ Cup win for jockey Paco Lopez. Roy H paid $7.40 to win. Whitmore was second and Imperial Hint was third.
“He’s really training good and doing good,” Miller said. “I just can’t say enough about this horse. Paco Lopez gave him a great ride. Just unbelievable. I can’t believe it. Too good to be true.”
Miller was worried that Lopez moved Roy H too soon, but his fears were unfounded.
“I loved my position early,” Lopez said. “I let him go a little early and he started a big move. I knew they were going fast up front. I just had a really good ride from him.”
Miller says Stormy Liberal and Roy H, geldings, will return as a 7-year-olds.
Mile: Sadler almost broke his now zero for 44 winless streak as Catapult just got passed at the wire in this grass race. Expert Eye won by a half-length over Catapult, while Analyze It was third. Expert Eye paid $13.80 to win and gave Frankie Dettori his 13th Breeders’ Cup win.
Expert Eye paid $13.80 to win for trainer Sir Michael Stoute.
“He’s run a great race,” Stoute said. “Last time at Chantilly, he did not get the rub of the green. … I thought down the back straight that Frankie [Dettori] may have had him two slots behind, but he was in control. We love coming to the Breeders’ Cup. It’s always great coming here.”
Van Dyke, aboard Catapult, just couldn’t hold off the winner.
“He broke sharp and put me in a good spot on the first turn,” Van Dyke said. “I had a clear trip from there on out. He gave me a good kick on the far turn, passed (Analyze It) late but couldn’t hold off the one on the outside in the last couple jumps.”
Distaff: No question that Monomoy Girl was the best horse in this 1 1/8-mile race, but the bigger question is what has happened to Abel Tasman, who finished 11th in the 11-horse race. The Eclipse Award winning filly has now run two terrible races in a row. It wouldn’t be surprising to see her retired soon.
Monomoy Girl paid $5.60 to win. Wow Cat was second and Midnight Bisou finished third.
“She ran the way she was training,” winning trainer Brad Cox said. “She was training like a monster and she ran like a monster. She is a special filly, one of a kind, an unbelievable filly.”
Baffert didn’t parse words about Abel Tasman’s performance. “She just quit,” Baffert said. “She just quit running. Sometimes they do that. I thought she was in a good spot, he (Mike Smith) got aggressive with her, but she just doesn’t want to run anymore it looks like.”
Smith was ever so slightly more hopeful. “I wish I knew what was wrong with her,” Smith said. “I wish it was something I can tell you so I can fix it.”
Mopotism, for trainer Doug O’Neill, was the best Southern California horse in fifth. La Force (Paddy Gallagher) was eighth and Vale Dori (Baffert) was 10th.
Turf: There were only two fillies in the $4 million Turf and they came up one-two. Enable, who has won nine-of-10 lifetime, fought hard to pass Magical in deep stretch to win by ¾ of a length. It was Enable’s first race in the United States. In fact, seven of the 13 horses are based outside the U.S.
Enable is coming off a second win in the prestigious Arc de Triomphe in France. She did have to work to get to the front, but in the end the 1 ½-mile distance proved just right for her. She became the first Arc winner to win a Breeders’ Cup race.
“She was wonderful,” said winning trainer John Gosden. “She’s had a hard race and as usual she showed enormous courage to go and win. Dettori was the winning rider.
Enable’s next move is up in the air. “There’s no great hurry [to make a decision],” said Teddy Grimthorpe, the racing manager for Juddmonte Farms. “She’s going back to Newmarket [England]. We’ll make sure she’s all right and then think about the future.”
Classic: Let the horse of the year talk begin. Sadler finally broke his long Breeders’ Cup losing streak with a win in the Classic with Accelerate. No doubt, Accelerate has shown sustained excellence over the entire year. But, Justify won the Triple Crown.
Accelerate had the outside post (14) on Saturday and broke cleanly as Mendelssohn went to the front. The Baffert pair of McKinzie and West Coast were in a good position off the pace. Accelerate was content to be fifth on the outside. Just shy of a mile, jockey Joel Rosario moved Accelerate to the front as the Baffert horses fell back. Heading into the stretch Accelerate pulled even. At the top of the stretch, he was in front by a length as Mendelssohn started to fade. From there, he withstood a challenge from Thunder Snow between horses and by the finish line held off the hard-charging Gunnevera to win by a length.
Accelerate paid $7.40 to win. Gunnevera was second and Thunder Snow was third.
“This horse is special,” said Kosta Hronis, who along with his brother Pete own the horse. “He’s shown up every time. He’s danced every dance. He’s been solid. This is horse of the year. It’s a body of work and what he’s done in the last 12 months. I think he’s well deserved to get that honor. There’s no doubt.”
And here’s another roundup of all the races except the Classic so, just click here.
A decent card was certainly overshadowed by the Breeders’ Cup, but let’s quickly get to the stakes winners. In the $200,000 Golden State Juvenile, for 2-year-olds going seven furlongs, Cruel Intention topped Galilean by a neck to win the race.
Cruel Intention at least gave Baffert a stakes winner on Saturday, and paid $3.60, $2.20 and $2.10. Luck’s Royal Flush was third.
“I knew he was a very good horse and he’s very smart,” winning jockey Evin Roman told Mike Willman of Santa Anita.
In the other stakes, the Grade 3 $100,000 Sen. Ken Maddy Stakes for fillies and mares going 6 ½ furlongs down the hillside turf course, Storm the Hill pulled off a 1 3/4-length victory for trainer D’Amato and jockey Rafael Bejarano.
Storm the Hill paid $6.80, $3.40 and $2.40. Painting Corners was second and Poster Girl was third.
“She was much the best,” Bejarano said. “Her best performance is at 6 ½. … She won at the distance and won again [Saturday]. She had a good turn of foot in the stretch, especially with that pace.”
If you don’t have a Breeders’ Cup hangover, Santa Anita has a really nice closing day card. Plus, it’s a mandatory payout for the Rainbow Pick Six, and the pool is expected to exceed $7 million.
Also, can’t say enough about the field sizes, as seven of the 10 races have at least 10 horses. And, there are five turf races and two graded stakes. One more thing, post time is 11 a.m., which will be noon if you don’t forget to reset your clocks as we go off daylight saving time. It’s a great way to end its short fall season before Del Mar picks up on Friday.
The first stakes is the Grade 2 $200,000 Goldikova Stakes for fillies and mares going a mile on the turf. The deserved 9-5 is Vasilika, who is one of the best stories of the year. She was claimed for $40,000 by Jerry Hollendorfer and has won eight of nine during that stretch and seven in a row including the Grade 1 Rodeo Drive. Flavien Prat continues as the regular rider.
The second favorite is Cambodia at 5-2. She lost her last two races to Vasilika including a third-place finish in the Rodeo. Van Dyke rides for Tom Proctor. Post time is around 12:30 p.m.
The Grade 2 $200,000 Twilight Derby is the other stakes or horses going 1 1/8 miles on the turf. River Boyne is the 5-2 favorite for Jeff Mullins and Prat. He has won five of his last seven, although he was third last out in the Del Mar Derby. Have At It, a shipper from New York, and Platinum Warrior, who is running his second race in the U.S. after starting in Ireland, are both second favorites at 4-1. Post will be about 2:50 p.m.
Here are the field sizes, in order: 11, 8, 6, 8, 12 (2 also eligible), 10, 14, 10, 10 (2 ae), 12 (1 ae).

Bob Ike’s SA play of the day
SIXTH RACE: No. 9 My Man Chuckles (6-1)
Late-running sprinter from the Richard Baltas stable has been freshened since Aug. 24 but gets back on his favorite downhill turf layout and might be able to run these down at a solid price. Three of his four lifetime wins have come down the hill and he gets Rosario, who is in town to ride after a big Breeders' Cup weekend.
Saturday’s result: Painting Corners finished second in the eighth race.

Ed Burgart LA play of the day
SIXTH RACE: No. 3 Seaduction (3-1)
Making only her third career start, this 2-year-old filly has much upside and improved sharply when scoring a one-length trial victory in her second outing. She took advantage of bad gate antics by the two favorites in her trial victory but looked smooth throughout. She showed promise in prior neck debut loss at shorter distance when breaking slow. I also fear Tamura, a three-time winner who was claimed for $20,000 by Charles Treece from his last troubled nose win. I suggest a win bet on Seaduction and make a 3-6 exacta box.

LIL MILO went up inside to duel for the lead, fought back into the stretch and past midstretch and weakened late. ASTONISHING TWEET angled in and dueled between horses, stalked on the turn, angled to the inside entering the stretch and weakened. LEVI'S SAINT JAMES broke in a bit, settled off the rail, dropped back on the turn, came three wide into the stretch and was not a threat. ICOULDONLYIMAGINE saved ground chasing the pace, came a bit off the rail in the stretch and lacked a further response. DROPS IN THE OCEAN squeezed some at the start then bobbled early, settled just off the rail then angled in and saved ground but failed to menace.

STAYTHIRSTYMYAMIGO dueled three deep then outside a rival, inched away and angled in on the turn and won clear under urging. DISCRETE STEVIE B stalked between horses then three deep into and on the turn, angled in outside a rival into the stretch and was clearly second best. SASS MACHINE angled in early and chased inside, split rivals on the turn, found the fence again into the stretch and bested the others. DISCO TALE stumbled in a slow start, saved ground off the pace, came out into the stretch and lacked the needed rally. CASH FOR CASS had speed between horses then stalked between rivals on the backstretch and most of the turn, continued outside a foe into the stretch and weakened. DEPENDE DE TI stalked four wide on the backstretch and into the turn, continued off the rail on the turn and three wide into the stretch and also weakened. PALM D'ORO broke in a bit, angled in and dueled inside, stalked along the rail on the turn and had little left for the stretch. LA DOLFINA in tight early, settled a bit off the rail, dropped back outside a rival on the turn, gave way and was eased late.
