Racing! Santa Anita cancels Thursday card

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we try and lighten up the newsletter a little bit.

We’ll start with the news of the day. Santa Anita has decided to cancel its Thursday card based on the threat of impending bad weather. The track has set up for a mega-card on Friday (11 races starting at noon) when the weather improves. That is, if the weather pattern stays as it is.

As for the elephant in the room, Sunday’s training and racing went off without incident.

OK, folks, we need to lighten the mood of this newsletter of late, so I thought I’d look at some of the most sought after claimers from the last Del Mar meeting and the current Santa Anita meet. By sought after, I looked to see which claimers had the most number of people putting in a bid for them. It’s better known as “shakes.”

Now, don’t expect the kind of success Jerry Hollendorfer had with Vasilika, but let’s take a look.

--Powder (26). This now 5-year-old had 26 people wanting her when she ran on Dec. 2 at Del Mar. Her tag was $20,000 and trainer Genaro Vallejo won the shake. (Yes, I know the horse is actually bought by an owner not a trainer.) She came back and finished second in a $32,000 claimer and won $7,000 in her only subsequent race. That’s 35% of investment.

--Operandi (24). Steve Knapp was the winner of this 24-person shake on Nov. 11. This now 4-year-old filly has finished fourth in a $40,000 claimer and sixth in a starter allowance. She has won $2,631 since being claimed for $20,000. That’s 13% of investment.

--Rinse and Repeat (18). Knapp won an 18-person shake on Feb. 17 at Santa Anita for the $25,000 claimer. (Ever think of taking Steve to Las Vegas? Just sayin’.) This 5-year-old horse finished fourth in an allowance and won $3,420. That’s 13.7% of investment.

--Don’t Stalk Me (15). Robert Hess, Jr. was the winner of this 15-person shake on Nov. 16 at Del Mar for $16,000. The then 3-year-old gelding won his first race back, a $12,500 claimer at Santa Anita and was claimed again. Add the purse ($12,100) and the claim price and you have 153.8% of investment.

--Baby Ice (12). Vann Belvoir picked up this this 5-year-old mare for $16,000 on Nov. 23 at Del Mar. He ran her back on Dec. 14 on Los Alamitos, where she finished third and was claimed by Knapp. She won $2,040 and if you add in the $16,000 claim, you have 112.8% of investment. (Note: Knapp has won $22,300 with this mare since he acquired her. See Vegas comment above.)

--Speakers (11). The then 4-year-old filly (now mare) was claimed for $20,000 by Mike Puype on Nov. 9 at Del Mar. She ran back on Dec. 1 and finished ninth, winning $345 and was claimed by Andrew Lerner for $20,000. The previous owners won 101.8% of investment. Lerner has made $4,971 in three races since the claim.

--Don’t Stalk Me (9): Remember him? Doug O’Neill won a nine-person shake to win the then 3-year-old gelding for $12,500 on Dec. 28 at Santa Anita. Since then he won and finished fourth in a couple of claimers winning $22,080, which is 176.7% of investment.

--Tammy’s Window (9). This 5-year-old mare was claimed by Jack Carava for $32,000 on Feb. 1 at Santa Anita. She has run once since then finishing fourth in an allowance. She won $3,420, or 10.7% of investment.

--R Cha Cha (9). This 5-year-old gelding was claimed by Jorge Periban for $25,000 on Feb. 15 and hasn’t run back yet.

--Kazan (9). This 4-year-old gelding was claimed by William Morey for $40,000 on Feb. 24 and hasn’t run back yet.

So, there you have it, showing some people turned a quick profit and other are doing a long play.

Santa Anita review

It was a pretty good stretch duel on Sunday during the $100,000 Tiznow Stakes for older Cal-breds going a mile on the dirt. King Abner broke on top and looked as if he was going to wire the field but Edwards Going Left put forth a very gutty performance in a close stretch run to win by half-a-length. The track was listed as good.

Edwards Going Left paid $4.40, $2.20 and $2.10 for trainer John Sadler and jockey Joel Rosario. Surfing Star was third followed by Unusually Green and Shades of Victory.

“The track seemed like the horses in front were running really well, so I told Joel to ride him out of the gate, get him a good position, then figure out what you want to do,” Sadler said. “He’s such a nice horse, if you look at his form he doesn’t have a bad race on there, and his form serves him well.”

Here’s how Rosario recounted the race.

“He broke a little slow so I was having to use him a little right away,” he said. “It looked like a nice spot was there on the rail and he was wanting to go towards it. There was room so I dipped him in and he did the rest. I wanted to have him wherever he wanted to be and he was happy and traveling well once there. He tried really hard today and fought back. Last time I rode him he was trying to go by the other horses and didn’t quit, so when we were in it [Sunday], in the stretch I saw the same thing from him.”
