Racing! Finishing up Santa Anita stewards’ rulings

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as Del Mar opens its Monday doors for a Veterans Day card.

We’re way behind on our review of stewards’ rulings, so let’s see what the adjudicators did during the end of the Santa Anita meeting.

--Owner Walter Swinburn was restored to good standing after he was suspended April 22 for failing to appear for a hearing dealing with an insufficient funds check of $1,503.58 that Swinburn paid to the Southern California Equine Foundation. The debt has been paid.

--Groom Lorenzo Contreras was fined $50 for removing a clock from the barn of trainer Ron Ellis on Oct. 4. The act was captured on surveillance cameras. Contreras admitted to taking the clock, which was recovered in his tack room. The official charge is disorderly conduct.

--Jockey Ruben Fuentes was suspended five days after his mount, Ultimate Bango, drifted out and caused interference in the sixth race at Santa Anita on Oct. 25. Ultimate Bango was moved from first to fourth. It was Fuentes third riding suspension in the last 30 days.

--Trainer Carla Gaines was fined $500 for a medication violation. On Sept. 3 at Del Mar, her horse, Sterling’s Temple, finished ninth in the third race but tested positive for an excessive level of Betamethasone, an anti-inflammatory. The horse had 66 pg/ml in his system. The allowable level is 10 pg/ml. Gaines said the injections were outside the recommended seven-day withdrawal period. CHRB Medical Director Dr. Rick Arthur submitted a letter saying that extra-articular administrations have extended elimination times.

--Jockey Assael Espinoza was fined $100 for using his riding crop more than three times without giving the horse a chance to respond. His mount Buck Duane finished fifth in the five-horse second race on Oct. 26. Espinoza admitted he violated the rule.

--Trainer Steve Knapp was fined $750 for a medication violation. On Sept. 6 at Los Alamitos, his horse, Ciao Luna, won the eighth race but tested positive for an excessive level of Phenylbutazone, an anti-inflammatory. The horse had 5.1 ug/ml in her system. The allowable level is 2.0 ug/ml. Knapp said he was confused as to how it could have happened. According to the vet report, the horse was treated 30 hours before post-time. The stewards felt there should be leniency since Knapp has not had a Phenylbutazone violation since 2013.

--Jockey Assael Espinoza’s appeal of his 10-day suspension was overruled. It stemmed from an incident on Aug. 4 at Del Mar, where he was said to have interfered with two horses while aboard Aussie Fox. The incident caused injuries to jockeys Corey Nakatani, who has still not returned to riding, and Geovanni Franco. Irish Spring was euthanized after the incident. Espinoza will not be riding on Nov. 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24 and 25, except in specially designated races.

--Trainer Hector Palma was fined $5,000 for a medication violation. On Aug. 23 at Del Mar, Midnight Lilly finished second in the sixth race but tested positive for an excessive level of Phenylbutazone, an anti-inflammatory. The horse had 2.59 ug/ml in his system. The allowable level is 2.0 ug/ml. Palma said he had no idea how it happened. It was his fourth offense in the last 365 days. If he has another violation before the end of the year, he would be suspended for no less than seven days.

--Trainer Robert Hess, Jr. was fined $1,000 for a medication violation. On Sept. 15 at Los Alamitos, Midnight Miracle finished fourth in the eighth race and had an excessive level of Phenylbutazone, an anti-inflammatory. The horse had 2.62 ug/ml in his system. The allowable level is 2.0 ug/ml. Hess said he had no idea how it happened, but said “it was not out of the realm of possibility that one of his employees may have given a bit of oral Bute to the horse, although no one is owning up to it.” It was the second violation in the last 365 days so the fine was larger.

--Trainer Mike Pender was fined $200 when Grandma Gertrude, who finished 10th in a 10-horse race on Nov. 2 at Santa Anita, showed up improperly shod for a turf race. Pender accepted responsibility.

--Jockey Alex Jimenez was fined $100 for disorderly conduct. A security report on Oct. 28 said Jimenez was uncooperative with a stable security officer who asked to see his license to enter the area. Jimenez then became “irate” and drove into the area anyway. Jimenez admitted he did not have his license but believed the gateman knew him and was rude. The security report said Jimenez directed profane language at the security officer, which Jimenez denied.

Trevor’s alarming call

During Sunday’s fourth race, Wild Verse had a difficult start, unseated jockey Heriberto Figueroa and race caller Trevor Denman reported that the horse jumped the fence and was in the parking lot. TVG’s Rich Perloff, in the L.A. studio, was obviously concerned because “horse and parking lot” in the same sentence is not a good image. Journalist Britney Eurton of TVG was on the scene reporting that Wild Verse was corralled on the backstretch and Figueroa walked to the ambulance and appeared OK.

Turns out everyone was right. When Denman said the parking lot, he wasn’t referring to the parking lot where the BMWs were dropping off the valet keys. There is a stretch of dirt inside the backstretch chute that is a makeshift parking lot on race days. In short, it’s really just dirt in which cars can be parked with not a lot of traffic. There were a couple dozen cars parked there on Sunday. And, Wild Verse was picked up on the adjacent backstretch.

Best part of the story, both jockey and horse were OK.

Del Mar review

Now, I’m not going to say we predicted the winner of Sunday’s feature, the $100,000 Betty Grable Stakes for Cal-bred fillies and mares going seven furlongs. But, only because one of the co-owners of Spiced Perfection is Mike Tierney, a Times contributor and friend of the newsletter. We mentioned the jockey change on the filly as Joe Talamo, a greater rider and person, got off Spiced Perfection to ride favorite S Y Sky.

The connections of Spiced Perfection ended up with, as I put it, some guy named Flavien Prat. A joke, clearly. But all you had to do was watch Prat at the top of the stretch where he went between horses where there appeared to be no room—and I mean no room—to go to the front and win by 2 ¼ lengths. He made the move with no interference, no foul, just the skill of a talented and fearless jockey.

So, now trainer Brian Koriner needs to figure out if they stay with Prat, if he’s not riding a Jerry Hollendorfer horse, or go back to the talented Talamo.

“We had a very good trip,” Prat said, understating his ride. “Sat right behind the speed in a perfect spot. She split horses and went right on with it. She’s a good one.”

Spiced Perfection paid $10.60, $5.00 and $3.20. Just Grazed Me was second and S Y Sky was third.

“She’s a tough filly who runs great every time,” Koriner said. “Flavien rode her great and she responded for him. I thought she was a little far back early, but a hole opened up for her coming for home and once she poked her head through there, that was it.”

Del Mar preview

There is a special Veterans Day card at Del Mar on Monday starting at 12:30 p.m. The thing you don’t see often is the featured race being the second, but that’s where the track put the $100,000 Desi Arnaz Stakes for 2-year-old fillies going seven furlongs. There are three turf races.

A problem that Santa Anita had in its recent meet was getting decent sized fields in its stakes. And, that’s the problem on Monday at Del Mar with only five starters. So, in order to keep it out of the Pick Six, the Desi Arnaz is the second race, just in case you needed some ‘splainin.

Not much to go on in the feature, but the favorite is Chasing Yesterday, a 6-5 choice for trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Drayden Van Dyke. The filly has won two of three races and was seventh in the Grade 1 Spinaway at Saratoga.

The close second choice, at 7-5, is It’sjustanillusion (boys and girls, notice the proper use of the apostrophe). Hollendorfer trains and Prat rides. She has won one of two starts and finished second to Chasing Yesterday in the other. Interestingly, both horses were ridden previously by Mike Smith, who is not riding in the race. Knowing who he would choose might be helpful.

Bob Ike’s DMR play of the day

SEVENTH RACE: No. 2 More Ice (9-2)

Two-year-olds going a mile on grass, let's go with this Jerry Hollendorfer-trained colt who is the only one proven over the Del Mar turf course. He was a handy maiden winner here on Sept. 2 before disappointing in a stakes race at Santa Anita. Perhaps he's better locally and switches to Prat, so give him the edge at a square price.

Sunday’s result: Falcone got hammered in the wagering but lugged in and offered no stretch rally in a disappointing performance.
