Racing! Stewards’ rulings are back
Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we wonder if Santa Anita executives are sleeping well at night.
We’ve got some catching up to do on the stewards’ rulings at Del Mar. So, let’s get right to them.
--Jockey Ricardo Jaime was fined $100 for using his riding crop three times in succession without giving the horse a chance to respond. Now, here’s where it gets tricky. The stewards’ minutes and the ruling said the offense took place in the sixth race on Sun., Nov. 11, but Jaime did not ride in that race. So, here’s guessing the infraction took place on Mon., Nov. 12, where he rode Monterey Shale to a third-place finish in the sixth race. Who goofed, I’ve got to know? (Done for effect, really don’t need to know.)
--Jockey agent Richard Silverstein was fined $200 for failure to conduct business in a proper manner. In this case, he said he forgot to alert the stewards that his jockey Martin Pedroza would not be riding on Nov. 14. He only had one mount that day.
--Jockey agent Nelson Arroyo was fined $200 for failure to conduct business in a proper manner. Arroyo said he “spun” owner Nick Hines that his jockey would ride Empress of Joy in the fourth race on Nov. 17, according to the stewards’ minutes. The stewards did not identify which jockey was supposed to ride the horse but Arroyo represents Kent Desormeaux and Norberto Arroyo, Jr. Desormeaux was on another horse in that race. Now, there also was no horse in the race called Empress of Joy, but we are assuming it was Empress of Lov, who finished fourth with Luis Fuentes aboard. (See first ruling.)
--Owner Michael Martin was suspended starting Nov. 23 for failure to appear at a hearing at which it was alleged that he owed the Equine Medical and Surgical Group $2,016.60. He is barred from the all areas of the track until the suspension is lifted.
--Owner/trainer Lance Hellum was suspended for failure to fulfill a 2016 financial agreement that resulted in a debt of $1,159.61 to vendor Matt Unamuno of Angels’ Feed. The suspension went into effect on Nov. 25 and Hellum is barred from all areas of the track until the suspension is lifted.
--Owner Samantha Siegel of Jay Em Ess Stable and jockey Joe Talamo were ordered to return all purse money after Mr. Vargas, who won the seventh race on Aug. 18 at Del Mar, tested positive for procaine, an antibiotic. The stewards’ minutes said the level was 2,932 ng/ml, the ruling said it was in excess of that. It was further ruled that Mr. Vargas be disqualified and ruled unplaced in the race. Gato Del Oro is the new winner, however, the ruling does not change any of the pari-mutuel payouts. It cost Jay Em Ess Stable $34,843 and Talamo has to return $3,900. The monies are due by Dec. 18. Brian Koriner is the trainer of Mr. Vargas and was not named in the ruling.
--Trainer Mike Machowsky was fined $400 for a late declaration to not run his horse, Ria Munk in the second race on Nov. 22. The stewards ruled the trainer did not have a valid reason for scratching his horse.
Del Mar review
The feature on Saturday was the Grade 1 $300,000 Hollywood Derby for horses going 1 1/8 miles on the turf. The race lived up to its billing with the two favorites battling down the stretch. In the end, shipper Raging Bull for trainer Chad Brown, rallied from the back of the pack, entered the stretch wide and won by a half-length over a game River Boyne. Joel Rosario, who is relocated to Southern California, flew in to ride the colt.
“I thought I was on the best horse, so I rode him that way,” Rosario said. “With him, he has a powerful quarter-mile kick at the end. Terrific acceleration. So, I just needed to keep him outside, keep him in the clear where I could ride him at the finish. It worked out just the way I’d hoped.”
Raging Bull paid $5.80, $3.40 and $2.80. Instilled Regard, running his first race on the turf, finished third.
Brown was back at his stable in New York, and assistant Jose Hernandez came in to manage the shippers.
“I expected him to be a little closer in the first part,” Hernandez said. “The speed had been holding in the earlier turf races. But he came from off the pace very well. Rosario is a good rider and he knows what he’s doing, especially here in California. One [race] down, three [horses the Matriarch] to go.”
A few days ago, we put up the stats on 2-year-olds trained by Bob Baffert. In Saturday’s eighth race, Kingly won another one for the Hall of Fame trainer. His record with young horses seems incredible so far this year.
In sad news, Tribal Ann, a 4-year-old Cal-bred filly, broke down in the second race on the far turn. She was euthanized back at the barn.
Del Mar preview
This is it for the fall meeting at Del Mar, which except for a day or rain on Thursday, has had a seemingly very successful meeting. The closing day card is none-races starting at 12:30 p.m. There are four turf races including the Grade 1 $300,000 Matriarch Stakes for fillies and mares going a mile.
We rarely root for a horse but can’t help but love the story line on the favorite in the race, Vasilika at 7-2. I know I’ve told the story before, but I’ll tell it again. She was claimed 10 races back by Jerry Hollendorfer for $40,000. Since then she’s won nine of 10, including eight in a row. She’s won three graded stakes. Flavien Prat gets the ride. We’ve probably had a time in our life where we finally figure something out and, while not even Hollendorfer could have expected these kinds of results, it seems like this filly has figured it out, whatever “it” is.
Reminds us of the movie “City Slickers” where Jack Palance and Billy Crystal discuss the secret of life and try and figure out what’s the “one thing.” Classic scene, contains bad words, but if you want to watch it, here it is. Oh, and there are horses in it, too.
Back to our regularly scheduled newsletter. The second favorite is another Brown shipper from New York called Uni. She is three for three this year with two graded stakes wins. Brown also has Quidura (8-1) and Rymska (5-1) in the 14-horse race. Rosario will be riding Uni.
It goes as the seventh race at about 3:30 p.m.
Here are the field sizes on a mandatory payout last day, in order: 7, 7, 8, 10, 10, 10, 14, 7, 11.

Bob Ike’s DMR play of the day
SECOND RACE: Exacta Box 3-4
I like two 6-1 shots in here, Twisted Rosie and Brookes All Mine. Twisted Rosie tired after contesting the pace last time but is better with a target at which to run, and Brookes All Mine returns from Golden Gate and gets back on dirt, which is her preferred surface (she won here during the summer at 5-1). Box these two in the exacta and call it a meet at Del Mar.
Saturday’s result: Tapitha Bonita (9-1) dueled on the early lead from down inside and hung on as best she could before tiring late and settling for third.

Ed Burgart LA play of the day
EIGHTH RACE: No. 9 First To The Moon V (5-2)
Most eyes will be on CM Whatta About Me, dropping back to the maiden ranks after a solid fourth-place finish in the Wild West Futurity five weeks ago. But I loved the works on debut runner First To The Moon V, whose dam Your First Moon is a multiple Grade I winner. First To The Moon V was very quick early in both of her local 12.1 and 12.2 gate drills and was geared down with big strides in latest work. Also, her trainer Jaime Gomez is exceptional with 2-year-olds.
