Racing! City of Light wins Pegasus World Cup

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we say goodbye to the racing careers of City of Light and Accelerate.

It was another display of the power of Southern California racing as City of Light and Accelerate moved to the front on far turn of the $9 million Pegasus World Cup. But, on this day, City of Light was much the best, winning by 5 ¾ lengths.

If you want to read more about the race and the thoughts of the winners and losers, just click here.

“Winning a Breeders’ Cup [Dirt Mile] was incredibly special,” winning trainer Michael McCarthy said. “To be able to follow it up with something like this, don’t know if it will ever happen again. If it doesn’t, I’m probably OK with it.

“I like that Vin Scully line, ‘Don’t be sad it’s over. Be glad it happened.’”

City of Light paid $5.80, $4.20 and $3.00. Seeking the Soul was second, Accelerate was third followed by Bravazo, Audible, Gunnevera, True Timber, Imperative, Tom’s d’Etat, Something Awesome, Kukulkan and Patternrecognition.

“[City of Light] was outside of a horse who couldn’t get the distance,” John Sadler, Accelerate’s trainer, said. “That other speed horse [Patternrecognition] couldn’t go that far so he was able to kind of cruise out there. We were kind of down in between some mud and dirt. I think he put in a good effort.”

Both City of Light and Accelerate will be picked up by the same horse trailer in the morning then fly to Lane’s End Farm in Versailles, Ky. to begin careers as stallions. Accelerate is already booked with 140 mares for a $20,000 stud fee.

In the other Grade 1 race, Bricks and Mortar won the $6 million Pegasus World Cup Turf.

How to improve the Pegasus

The wet, dreary weather certainly was not ideal for Gulfstream on Saturday. Weather can happen anywhere. All of which brings me to an idea that will make the Pegasus day better.

I think it’s pretty clear that the addition of the $7 million Pegasus World Cup Turf is not going to make a difference in the on-track attendance. The place is packed, the fans are happy, and, while I didn’t ask anyone, I’d be hard pressed to find someone say, “I wasn’t going to come out until they added the turf race.”

The Pegasus didn’t need fixing by adding another big race and the place is so small it’s not like you can add a big number to on-track attendance. But, maybe some others could benefit.

So, how about splitting the races and put the turf either at Santa Anita or Laurel on the same day. The advantage to taking it to Santa Anita is the track knows how to put on a big event and, well, it’s Santa Anita. The down side is it’s a ship for several of the horses. In Saturday’s race, three of the 10 horses were Santa Anita based, but only four were stabled in South Florida. So, that’s pretty much a wash.

If you hold it at Laurel, the track gets to practice a big event in advance of it one day hosting a Breeders’ Cup or becoming the permanent home of the Preakness. The downside is it’s Maryland in January.

On Saturday, the high in Hallandale Beach was 64, in Laurel it was 37 (it would be 48 on Sunday) and in Arcadia it was 78. People in Maryland are a hardy bunch, for sure.

The point is that The Stronach Group has the opportunity to make a big event at another of its tracks without seriously impacting anything at Gulfstream. Win-win.

Stronach family update

The bitter legal fight between founder Frank Stronach and his daughter Belinda Stronach was in evidence at Gulfstream on Saturday. Last year, they both appeared on the dais at the post-race media conference. Both had prominence in the track program.

But since then, Frank sued Belinda for essentially mismanaging and defrauding the company, wanted her ouster. Belinda has denied it and seems to have a stranglehold on the company. On Thursday, they sat at separate tables at the Eclipse Awards. In this year’s program, there is a front-of-the-book greeting from Belinda and nothing from or about Frank. Both skipped the post-race media conference. It’s pretty clear who’s winning this war.

In case you wondered

I tried going to the ADWs run by TVG, Twinspires (Churchill Downs) and NYRA (New York) using the wireless provided by Gulfstream. Guess what? All were blocked. But you knew that.

Weekly handicapping lesson

Here’s our weekly contribution from Rob Henie of the WCHR (West Coast Handicapping Report) and the ECHR (East Coast Handicapping Report). The thinking is if you can know and understand the strategies, it will make you a better handicapper.

Today’s lesson is from the 10th race at Santa Anta. What say you, Rob.

“An allowance race at 6 ½ furlongs on the turf. These downhill turf races can produce some crazy front end wins, after all, it is, downhill, for much of the first part of the race, basically entering the top of the lane (following a brief main track crossing), with a head of steam down the lane. So, I always start up front, with a methodical process in place, asking myself, is there a front runner viable with a possible gate-to-wire effort? Are there multiple front runners, and if so, have one or the other proven the ability to rate off the speed if needed? If so, that’s always preferred, and here’s another issue to consider, if there are multiple front runners, is there one who’s fastest, forcing the other speedsters into the role of being ‘chasers,’ which often leads to a wire-to-wire effort when those doing the chasing simply spit the bit, not accustomed to the role of racing behind others. In this particular heat, #1 WHATSONTHEAGENDA is super fast, and is gonna have to use energy today from this rail slot. # MONTMARTRE showed :21.2 speed on the main track at Los Al, which translates on the turf to roughly a :20.3 turf opening split. #6 PADDOCK PICK is also quick, but none of these appear to be a clear-cut leader on the backside, nor have any shown the ability to rate before finishing, which leaves us with a strong inclination to look from a bit further back for the winner. With that in mind, top selection is EROTIC (#7) He won over this course three back over this shorter distance, and though showing little going long, we can establish she’s healthy, stringing four races together off the 10-month layoff, will be fit exiting those routes, and we love the work pattern, displaying quick works followed by the most recent very slow ⅜, telling us Richard Mandella needed nothing more from him while awaiting this next start. SHADOW SPHINX (#9) is similar, in that he had a few dull route tries, followed by a win over this downhill course last time out, galloping out well, back right on schedule with a pair of works, all the while retaining the services of Flavien Prat. Very easy to find right back, with the door wide open we believe for both of these finish well enough to get to the wire first.

“Hot / Cold Race Trends: none

“Win Contenders (order of preference): 7-9-5

“X Out Runners (eliminating on the win end): none

“Positive Notes:

“5 Jungle Warfare - Was finishing fact last time out (behind our top pick 5-1 winner), and this course is just a good one for him despite the 0 for 5 record, as he tries hard and usually comes running, while Desormeaux is back, a good fit for sure.

“Negative Notes:

“6 Paddock Pick - Would actually like to see this one going two turns on the turf.

“TOP PICK: EROTIC (#7 6-1 Talamo)

“SECOND CHOICE: SHADOW SPHINX (#9 4-1 Prat)”

Santa Anita review

Santa Anita had four Cal-bred stakes races, so let’s go through them.

California Cup Turf Sprint: Listing came four wide into the stretch and got up by half-a-length to win the $100,000 race down the 6 ½-furlong downhill turf course. Listing is a homebred for owner Paul Reddam, who has this horse with trainer Ben Cecil instead of his main trainer Doug O’Neill.

Listing, ridden by Mario Guiterrez, paid $7.00, $4.00 and $3.20. Takeo Square was second and Tivan finished third.

“It was a bit closer than I’d hoped, but he may have gotten a little tired” Cecil said. “I didn’t give Mario any instructions. He knows the horse. He had a good effort last time down the hill and we had to give him a little break prior to that, which he probably needed.”

California Cup Sprint: Touching Rainbows was patient watching Richard’s Boy go to a nice lead but in the end took advantage of the leader’s shortening stride to win the $150,000 six-furlong race by 1 ¼ lengths.

The 6-year-old gelding paid $8.00, $3.80 and $2.60. Richard’s Boy finished second and favorite Edwards Going Left was third.

“The race set up pretty well,” winning trainer Phil D’Amato said. “[Jockey] Tiago [Pereira] had him in the right spot and I liked that he pressed the button at the right time. He got him close enough to the other horse to engage him and wear him down. Hat’s off to Tiago. He’s not the easiest horse to ride. You have to press the button at the right time and Tiago did just that.”

Sunshine Millions Filly and Mare Turf Sprint: S Y Sky went wire to wire to win the $150,000 race for fillies and mares going 6 ½ furlongs down the hillside course. The winning margin was half-a-length for the D’Amato trained mare.

S Y Sky paid $6.00, $3.80 and $2.80. Queen Be to You was second and Fiery Lady was third.

“It's good to get her back in the winner's circle,” said winning jockey Joe Talamo. “She shows up every time. As you can see, she's never missed a check, you see that in the form. She just skips over the grass.”

Unusual Heat Turf Classic: Rye may have won the $200,000 race for older horses going 1 1/8 miles on the turf, but the headline was jockey Kent Desormeaux getting his 5,999th win. Desormeaux made a tactical move to get Rye to the rail and it proved to be the smart move, winning by 2 ¼ lengths.

“Thinking about it tremendously and I’ll have more to say then,” Desormeaux said about his impending milestone victory.

Rye paid $13.40, $6.40 and $5.00 for trainer William Morey. Ashleyluvssugar was second and Accountability was third.

“We turned him out and gave him some time [off] up north,” said Morey, who also owns the horse. “We did that last year too with him, and this year we were only able to get one prep race in him but I like the idea of getting the prep race up there on the synthetic and just keeping him happy and fresh for this race and there are a lot of horses in here that maybe weren’t quite as fresh as we were and it worked.”

Santa Anita preview

Half of Sunday’s 10-race card, which begins at noon, are turf races. Three are down the hill an the other two are a mile. There are four allowance or allowance/optional claimers and five claiming races. The average field size, despite having four straight races with a field of six, is 8.2.

The feature is the $70,000 Clocker Corner Stakes, a 6 ½ furlong turf race down the hill for older horses. Conquest Tsunami is the 5-2 favorite for trainer Peter Miller and jockey Drayden Van Dyke. He is eight-for-28 lifetime and two-for-four at Santa Anita. Two back he was 11th in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint.

The second favorite is Hunt, at 3-1, who has been off since Aug. 19 when he was sixth in the Del Mar Mile Handicap. He is nine-for-29 lifetime and five-for-12 at Santa Anita. He is trained by D’Amato and ridden by Prat.

Here are the field sizes, in order: 10, 6, 6, 6, 6, 11 (3 also eligible), 7, 9, 10, 11 (1 ae).

Big day at Sam Houston

I know we are supposed to concentrate on Southern California racing but every once in a while we like to see what’s going on at one of the smaller tracks. So, how about Sunday’s card at Sam Houston? It’s pretty good.

The highlight is Mike Smith going in to ride Midnight Bisou. It’s Mike’s first trip to Sam Houston and, well, Bisou is a horse that’s worth making the trip. Of course, it wouldn’t be Mike if he didn’t do an autograph session from noon to 1 p.m. That’s just who he is.

Midnight Bisou is the 3-5 favorite in the Grade 3 $300,000 Houston Ladies Classic Stakes. It’s one of two graded stakes, the other being the Grade 3 $200,000 John B. Connally Turf Cup Stakes. There are four other stakes races on the card. Sometimes it’s fun to watch when the smaller tracks pull off a big day.

Bob Ike’s SA pick of the day

FIRST RACE: No. 5 Mongolian Window (4-1)

Peter Miller-trained filly comes off a solid try going nine furlongs and should appreciate the cut back to one mile here. She stumbled at the start but still got to the front before tiring to third through the final 100 yards in a race that was probably too far for her. This distance seems ideal.

Saturday’s result: Marckie's Water was within range on the far turn but offered no rally through the stretch in a disappointer.

Bob Ike is a Partner/VP of Horsebills.com (here's a video) and the proprietor of BobIkePicks.com (full-card picks, 3 Best Plays and betting strategy).

Ed Burgart LA play of the day

FOURTH RACE: No. 4 Blaze Thru Fire (5-2)

This gelding looked much improved in a 12.3 gate drill late last month while preparing for his first start since a fifth-place debut last July. In his 12.3 work, he broke sharp and reached out nicely midway under a hand ride to outwork his company by two lengths. Trainer Pat Visscher must have been impressed since she brings him back in a straight maiden race while getting the services of leading jockey Jesus Ayala. He also catches soft field for the level.
