Racing! As expected, monster handle at Santa Anita
Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we tie up some loose ends on the Breeders’ Cup.
It looks as if we will get to see Accelerate run another time. While it’s not official, since he came out of Saturday’s Classic in good shape, he will be pointed to the $9 million Pegasus Cup at Gulfstream in January. The brilliance of the Pegasus is a soon-to-be-retired horse can run in it and still participate in the breeding season, which begins sometime in February.
I wasn’t at the barns on Sunday morning, instead headed for an early flight out of Cincinnati. (Hint to first-timers to Louisville: Cincinnati is only about 90 minutes away and the flights can be a couple hundred cheaper.) So, all this information and quotes comes courtesy of the Breeders’ Cup notes team. Thanks, guys.
“You know the John Sadler human-interest story is a good line but this needs to be about the horse,” Sadler said, speaking in the third person. “I hope people will zero in on his campaign – five Grade 1 victories with four at the classic distance of a mile and a quarter and usually carrying high weight. He showed [in the Classic] with horses from around the world, that he was the best horse. He had a great campaign and we’re very proud of that. He’s really a champion.”
Accelerate is headed to Lane’s End Farm, where he’ll have a meet and greet with prospective clients for breeding and a little time off. Then it’s back to Southern California, where he will resume training before shipping to Florida for his final race.
Sadler also updated folks on some of his other horses. Without question, Catalina Cruiser’s sixth-place performance in the Dirt Mile was very disappointing. It was his first loss in five races.
“We’ll get him home to California and give him a full vetting and see what’s going on,” Sadler said. “That was a disappointing run for him yesterday, but the plan is to campaign him at 5 [next year] and you’ll see better of him going forward.
“We scoped him after the race and he came back clean. [Jockey] Drayden [Van Dyke] said he was in a good position around the turn but then started to lug out a little bit and didn’t really kick in. At that point, he didn’t force him or beat him up. He’s a lightly raced horse [five starts] so we’ll check him out and get ready for another day.”
Sadler also said it appeared as if Selcourt didn’t like the surface in the Filly & Mare Sprint. She’s headed to the Fasig-Tipton sale this month and may or may not be returned to Sadler’s barn, depending on if she is purchased.
Finally, Sadler was very happy with Catapult’s second place in the turf Mile.
“We’re really proud of him,” Sadler said. “It was a very good second. He handled the yielding turf really well. He’s been a really good horse. He won two nice stakes at Del Mar and he got beat by Sir Michael Stoute [Expert Eye] so that puts him in good company. He’ll probably run next in the $7 million Pegasus Turf [on Jan. 26].”
The big Santa Anita story
It didn’t make anyone rich, but the Rainbow Six mandatory payoff on Sunday was the story of the day. The combination of the carryover and new money created a pool of almost $7.9 million. That’s basically found cash for the track.
But, a progression of favorites or low-priced horses made for a lot of winners but not a lot of money. Here are the prices of the winners: $4.00, $4.40, $11.00, $5.20, $8.40, $6.60. So, the payoff was $601.10 for all 10,466 winners. Maybe not a good day to be a big-ticket whale.
Santa Anita review
One of the best stories at Santa Anita this year has been Vasilika, who won her eighth straight race on Sunday when she won the Grade 2 $200,000 Golidkova Stakes, for fillies and mares going a mile on the turf. Trainer
“I was worried about her getting trapped on the rail, but, fortunately, Flavien had her in a good spot the whole way,” Hollendorfer said. “He saved ground around the first turn, then when she was ready to go, he got through and rode a beautiful race, maybe his best race yet on her.”
Vasilika paid $4.20, $3.00 and $2.60. Fahan Mura was second and Madame Stripes was third.
In the closing stakes of the meeting, the Grade 2 $200,000 Twilight Derby, favored River Boyne came wide into the stretch and worked his way to a half-length win in the 1 1/8-mile race.
“Last time, he got a little rank and that didn’t help,” said winning trainer
Prat was also the winning jockey in this stakes.
River Boyne paid $5.20, $3.20 and $2.60. Desert Stone was second and Majestic Eagle was third.
