Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we congratulate Chicago Style for winning the Hollywood
On Saturday, Del Mar will honor now retired jockey
Stevens suffered a back injury during a post parade last Saturday, although he continued riding that and one other race on that card. He took off his one mount on Sunday. On Monday, he had an MRI which revealed that any kind of fall could have much more serious consequences for the 55-year-old Hall of Fame rider. Stevens has retired twice before but this one most certainly will stick.
The other day, Stevens caught up with Hank Wesch of Del Mar to remember his very first stakes win at the track, aboard Tsunami Slew, in the 1985 Eddie Read Handicap.
“Tsunami Slew would get really nervous and wash out, but I got along really good with the horse in the mornings,” Stevens told Wesch. “I warmed him up before the race and he started to get a little bit nervous so I walked him over to the outside fence, where there was a hedge in those days. He stuck his head in there and started eating the leaves.
“I just let him, but I was thinking Eddie Gregson is probably wondering what the hell I’m doing right now and I hope these things aren’t poisonous.
“He chilled out and walked to the gate and we went wire to wire. I remember the race like it was yesterday. He was a cool horse, but he was a little nutso. Sometimes the Seattle Slew came out in him.”
It’s expected that Stevens will show up at the race track in some capacity, likely as a broadcaster, if past retirements are an indicator.
“As a friend, you hate to see such a career come to an end, but we all respect the decision,” said Joe Harper, the CEO of Del Mar. “And we hope and anticipate we’ll still have him around, in some capacity, in the sport he has served so well.”
Del Mar review
Friday’s feature, the Grade 2 $200,000 Hollywood Gold Cup (not run in Hollywood), showed how good a jockey Drayden Van Dyke has become. He took up Chicago Style at the back of the pack of the 1 ½-mile turf race until the far turn and the surged six wide to win by a neck.
“I knew they were going slow, but my horse was relaxed and I was comfortable with where we were,” Van Dyke said. “He’s a straightforward horse, you ask him and he gives. When it came time, I tipped him out and he went. It’s sure fun to ride ones like him.”
Chicago Style, trained by Tom Proctor, paid $5.80, $3.00 and $2.40. Bigger Picture finished second and Beach View, who lacked running room down the stretch, was third.
The win put Proctor one ahead of his father Willard with his 18th stakes victory at Del Mar.
Del Mar preview
It’s a really good card at Del Mar on Saturday. Think of this lineup: allowance (and by that we also mean optional claiming), maiden, allowance, maiden claiming, stakes, allowance, stakes, beaten claimers, allowance. We now claimers are the backbone of the industry, but, let’s face it, we really like allowance level horses. First post of nine races is 12:30 p.m. Five of the races are on the turf.
The first stakes is the $100,000 Jimmy Durante Stakes for 2-year-old fillies going a mile on the turf. A couple of
Motion’s other starter, Monette, is 4-1, and will be ridden by Kent Desormeaux. She has two wins and four seconds in seven starts. This is only her second start in the United States, as last out she was second in the Grade 3 Matron at Belmont. Post is about 2:30 p.m.
The bigger stakes, the $200,000 Seabiscuit Handicap for horses going 1 1/16 on the turf had morning-line maker Russell Hudak flummoxed with such an even field. He settled on Synchrony at a tepid 9-2. He is trained by Michael Stidham and Joe Bravo ships in to ride. He is seven of 17 lifetime and four of seven this year. He has won two Grade 3s at Monmouth and one Grade 3 at Fair Grounds.
The second favorite is Pincheck at 5-1. Jessica Harrington is the trainer and
Here are the field sizes, in order: 8, 6, 9, 6, 13, 9, 12, 10, 11 (3 also eligible).

Bob Ike’s SA play of the day
SEVENTH RACE: No. 10 Ohio (8-1)
Older gelding from the Michael McCarthy barn comes off a solid third-place finish in the City of Hope Mile at Santa Anita behind two tough milers after stepping up from a big win vs. $32,000 claimers over the Del Mar course. He has some back class and his last effort shows he fits with these, so tab in a wide-open stakes event and hope for some racing luck in this big field.
Friday’s result: Meritocracy (5-1) ran an even third when debuting in the seventh race.

Ed Burgart’s LA play of the day
SEVENTH RACE: No. 6 Barrymore Red Hot (2-1)
He should have been much slower than last fourth-place outing as the 8-5 favorite at the same level and now moves to the comfortable outside post. In last out, he veered in sharply to get bumped back after a sluggish start and finished running hard. He was sixth in debut vs. much stronger field when facing a solid winner who next ran second in an overnight handicap.
