Racing! Long racing weekend at Del Mar
Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we look at the early Kentucky Derby odds.
Shortly after the horses crossed the finish line in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, Bovada, that’s a betting company not a watch, put out its Kentucky Derby odds, with about seven months to go. Not a lot of surprises, but let’s put together most of the 20-horse field.
1. Game Winner (8-1) Won the BC Juvenile.
2. Instagrand (16-1) Went on holiday last part of year.
3. Coliseum (20-1) Unraced but working at Santa Anita.
4. Improbable (20-1) 2-for-2 winning an ungraded sakes at Churchill.
5. Knicks Go (20-1) Second by 2 ½ in the BC Juvenile.
6. Rowayton (20-1) Third in American Pharoah, second in Del Mar Futurity.
7. Complexity (25-1) Disappointing 10th in BC Juvenile.
8. Endorsed (25-1) Sixth in the Champagne.
9. Mucho Gusto (25-1) Won only race, a MSW at Los Al for
10. Roadster (25-1) Disappointing third at Del Mar Futurity.
11. US Navy Cross (25-1) Fourth in Nashua Stakes at Aqueduct.
12. Vekoma (25-1) Winner of the Nashua Stakes.
Bovada then lists 16 horses at 33-1: Aurelis Maximus, Cairo Cat, Call Paul, Code of Honor, Dream Maker, Fortin Hill, Frosted Ice, Gunmetal Gray, King for a Day, Maximus Mischief, Mucho, Network Effect, Preamble, Signalman, Strike Silver, Tale of the Union.
Next 2-year-old race I’m looking to is the Los Alamitos Futurity in early December.
Del Mar review
The feature on Saturday was the $79,840 (remember, Del Mar likes to put in the added money rather than just rounding like everyone else) Let It Ride Stakes for 3-year-olds going a mile on the turf. And, it set up perfect for a longshot.
Risky Proposition, aptly named as 22-1, swept wide into the stretch and went by everyone to win by ¾ of a length. It’s was a smart patient ride for jockey Joe Talamo, for trainer Bill Spawr.
He paid $47.00, $17.80 and $6.40. Choo Choo finished second and Calexman was third.
Risky Proposition was claimed by Spawr and his ownership group for $50,000 back in July. He made $46,680 on Saturday. We’ll call that a decent ROI.
Del Mar preview
It’s a nine-race card starting at 12:30 p.m. (I’ve always wondered if I really need to put p.m., but, hey, I’m a conventionalist.) at Del Mar. There are four turf races. But, there are two races with six horses and three with seven. That’s not up to Del Mar’s usual standards. And, don’t forget Del Mar also has racing on Monday this week.
The feature is the $100,000 Betty Grable Stakes for Cal-bred fillies and mares going seven furlongs. Now, Betty was not a Cal-bred. She was born in St. Louis. So, I’m not sure why this works but maybe I’m just too picky today. Anyway, the favorite is Just Graze Me, at 5-2, for trainer Phil D’Amato and jockey Tyler Baze. She was unraced as 2-year-old and has won two of four and finished second the other two times. But, she has never run at the stakes level.
The second favorite is one of our personal favorites, Spiced Perfection, because one of his owners is Times horse racing contributor Mike Tierney. We used to be all over Brave Helios, partly owned by Eric (Manny) Sondheimer, but BH runs about as often as Halley’s Comet.
Spiced is four of 12 lifetime but has been running many Cal-bred stakes. Now, here’s what’s interesting, Talamo, who is Spiced’s regular jockey forever, is riding S Y Sky for D’Amato in this race rather than her. Hmmm. But, the filly picks up some guy named Flavien Prat to ride.

Bob Ike’s SA play of the day
FIFTH RACE: No. 6 Falcone (6-1)
High-priced maiden claimers going 1 1/16 miles on turf and the value might be with this sophomore colt trained by Keith Desormeaux. He has been second in four of five starts but had a nightmarish trip in his return at Santa Anita two weeks ago and gets a big rider upgrade today. He's a little slow on numbers but should fire a good shot in here.
Saturday’s result: Mercy Mercy (4-1) sat a great trip but lacked punch through the lane while running an even fourth in the fifth race.

Ed Burgart LA play of the day
SEVENTH RACE: No. 7 Bestest (3-1)
This filly ran a respectable fifth from an inside post in last Golden State Million trial outing three weeks ago and returns to the maiden ranks. I liked her solid runnerup effort two outs ago vs. My Mystery Lover, who returned to beat allowance company last week. Fire And Fury, the 2-1 morning-line favorite, looks vulnerable based on average recent speed figures.

TAPWATER three deep early, pressed the pace outside a rival then stalked leaving the second turn, was fanned out a bit and re-bid alongside that rival into the stretch, took a short lead in midstretch and gamely prevailed under a crack of the whip and good handling. BIZWHACKS had speed between horses then set a pressured pace inside, inched away briefly leaving the second turn, came off the rail into the stretch, fought back inside the winner through the drive and could not quite match that one late. GIZA GODDESS stalked inside then between foes into and on the second turn, continued just off the rail in the stretch and finished well. ASK THE CUSTOMER chased inside then between horses on the backstretch and second turn, continued between foes in the stretch and was outfinished. OUT OF BALANCE saved ground stalking the pace, split horses in midstretch and also was outfinished. ENCANTA stalked off the rail then outside a rival, went three deep on the second turn and into the stretch and lacked a rally. HYDE PARK CORNER (IRE) chased outside a rival then three deep leaving the backstretch, went four wide on the second turn and into the stretch and could not offer the necessary response. SAMANDAH broke a bit slowly, chased just off the rail then between foes leaving the backstretch, went three deep on the second turn and four wide into the stretch and did not rally. LANDON also a bit slow to begin, settled three deep then outside a rival, went three wide leaving the backstretch and again into the stretch and lacked the needed response. REACHREACHREACH had speed inside then saved ground stalking the pace, continued inside into the stretch and weakened in the drive.
