Racing! Los Alamitos stewards’ ruling are in the house

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we congratulate Bellafina on a great performance.

At long last we can close the book on the Los Alamitos thoroughbred meeting with all the stewards’ rulings at once. Santa Anita is on deck for this week.

--Groom Arturo Aguilar was fined $50 for presenting false identification. No other details were provided.

--Apprentice jockey Luis Fuentes was suspended three days (Dec. 15, 16 and 26) for careless riding. On Dec. 7, he was riding Clear the Mine in the fourth race when his mount drifted out twice, once turning for home and then again near the half-pole. Clear the Mine was disqualified from second to third. The stewards unanimously levied their penalty for the second drift, which resulted in interference.

--Apprentice jockey Heriberto Figueroa was fined $100 for being late to the paddock walking ring before the first race on Dec. 7. In most jockeys’ rooms there is a bell that tells the riders when to go to the walking ring. Figueroa said he didn’t hear the bell. His mount, Here’slookinatya finished second in the race.

--Owner Michael Martin was restored to good standing after satisfying a debt of $2,016.60 to the Equine Medical Surgical Group. The original ruling came on Nov. 16.

--Jockey Mario Gutierrez was fined $100 for using his riding crop more than three times without giving his horse a chance to respond during the third race on Dec. 14. Gutierrez admitted to the violation on Smile Awhile, who finished second.

--Exercise rider Juan (Oscar) Ruiz was fined $100 for galloping a horse while the emergency lights were on at the track. No date was given. The stewards said Ruiz offered no valid excuse.

--Trainer Edin Walther Solis was fined $500 for trying to choke jockey John Jude in the barn area at San Luis Rey Downs. No date was given. Solis explained that the pair had a “history” and that while there was some physical contact, he downplayed the choke. Jude confirmed the pair had a “history” and said the choke was serious lasting for a few seconds. Solis apologized and said he just “lost his cool.” Solis must be evaluated by the Winners Foundation for anger management issues.

--Jockey Matt Garcia was suspended seven days (Dec. 26-Jan. 1) for twice weighing in more than one pound under his assigned weight on Sept. 14 and 15 at Los Alamitos. One day he weighed out (before) at 122 pounds and weighed in (after) at 120. The next day, he weighed out at 123.8 and weighed in at 121.6. When jockeys weigh out they do not have safety equipment but when they weigh in they do have that equipment, which accounts for about 2-2.5 pounds, which would make the discrepancy even greater. Garcia says he weighed out with a wet chamois and heavy girth channel but they were gone when he weighed back in. Matt Nichols, clerk of scales, said those items are not permitted at weigh out and that he did not recollect Garcia having those items anyway. A jockey can get away with being underweight by less than a pound.

(Cherwa note: Don’t know about you, but I certainly learned something.)

Where’s Rosario?

For the second day in a row, Joel Rosario was off all his mounts at Santa Anita. But, no fears, he’s coming back. “He’s got the flu,” Ron Anderson, Rosario’s agent, told Ed Golden of Santa Anita. “But he’s expected to resume riding on Thursday.”

Santa Anita review

Sunday’s feature, and the only stakes race in the country worth more than $100,000, was little more than a paid workout for talented 3-year-old filly Bellafina. She won the Grade 2 $200,000 Santa Ynez Stakes, a seven-furlong race, by 8 ½ lengths. And, she wasn’t really asked.

It was a tiny field of five, but she beat a pretty sturdy filly in Mother Mother, who finished second, and a surprise shipper from Northern California, Tomin, who was third. Reflect and Sold It completed the field.

Bellafina paid $2.80, $2.10 and $2.10.

There’s a pretty long story on the race both online and in print. You can read it here.

There was a tiny bit of trepidation on how she would run, after a flat fourth-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies. Trainer Simon Callaghan attributed it to her being in a breeding cycle.

“After the Breeders’ Cup, we jogged her for two weeks,” Callaghan said “And then she was showing such good energy, we got her back galloping and got her on a regular pattern.” And [owner] Kaleem [Shah] told me to run her when I thought she was ready. I said to Kaleem a couple of weeks before the race that we have to run, and he said that was fine.

“After a disappointment, and to see this kind of performance, it’s nice to see. I think she would have won the race if it was five, six, seven [furlongs], a mile or a mile-and-a-eighth.”

Flavien Prat, who has ridden her all six races, four of them wins, saw positive signs.

“She had trained well for Simon coming into this and I expected her to run well and she did,” Prat said. “She’s definitely improving. She was a little immature before, but [Sunday] she improved a lot.”

LOVING LYNDA stalked off the rail then three deep leaving the backstretch, angled in off the fence on the turn, came out in upper stretch, bid between foes, was no match for the winner in the final furlong but clearly best of the others. TYFOSHA was in a good position stalking the pace between foes or outside a rival, split horses into the turn, continued outside a foe, came three deep into the stretch, steadied when crowded in upper stretch and edged the pacesetter for the show. NO WINE UNTASTED sped to the early lead outside, set the pace off the rail then a bit off the fence, fought back in upper stretch and was outfinished for third. COPY BEGONE chased four wide then three deep, continued off the rail on the turn and a bit wide into the stretch and weakened. NICE ICE saved ground stalking then chasing the pace, continued inside in the stretch and also weakened. TRUSTINI settled inside chasing the pace, dropped back along the rail on the turn and into the stretch and gave way. Following a stewards' inquiry and a claim of foul by the rider of TYFOSHA against the runner-up for alleged interference in upper stretch, no change was made when the stewards ruled the incident did not alter the original order of finish.
