Racing! Roadster and Game Winner head to Kentucky

Racing! Roadster and Game Winner head to Kentucky

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as it’s time to start getting excited about the Kentucky Derby.

Let’s not waste any time and get right to the big day of racing at Santa Anita. And, the best news, everyone returned to the barn safely.

Santa Anita review

Let’s recap the day:

Evening Jewel Stakes: Sneaking Out seemed to get an effortless trip from Drayden Van Dyke in the $200,000 race for Cal-bred 3-year-old fillies going 6 ½ furlongs. He won by 2 ½ lengths and paid $3.00, $2.40 and $2.20. Dr Wysong was second and Ruby Bradley was third. “That was good, it was text book,” said trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. Van Dyke was a little more expansive. “She bobbed at the start, but she picked it up,” Van Dyke said. “I loved my position early. The track is deep, so I didn’t want to go too fast early. I gave her a tap at the 3/8th and she just took off. We eased up nearing the wire. I think she has a lot more left in the tank.”

Santa Anita Oaks: Bellafina couldn’t have made it look any easier in the Grade 1 $400,000 race for 3-year-old fillies going 1 1/16 miles. It was only a four-horse field after Stirred was a vet scratch. Bellafina was a little wide going into the first turn but settled nicely just off the lead. She was comfortably ahead by two lengths entering the stretch and won by 5 1/4, although it could have been whatever margin Flavien Prat wanted. She paid $2.60 and $2.10. Flor de La Mar was second followed by Chasing Yesterday and Slewgoodtobetrue.

Bellafina will now be pointed to the Kentucky Oaks, on the day before the Kentucky Derby. Her last trip to Churchill was in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies where she was a disappointing fourth. Trainer Simon Callaghan said her performance was flat because she was “in season.” “I’m looking forward to the Kentucky Oaks,” Prat said. “I’m confident she will run better than she did in the Breeders’ Cup.”

Owner Kaleem Shah also reflected on the last trip to Churchill Downs. “Last time in Louisville I think the team was disappointed,” Shah said. “We were hoping for a win but obviously that didn’t happen. Let’s see what happens this time. … I definitely wish that race in Kentucky was run here in Arcadia.”

Royal Heroine Stakes: Vasilika proved once again to be the best $40,000 claim ever when she won the Grade 2 $200,000 Royal Heroine Stakes for older fillies and mares going a mile on the turf. She has won 11 of her last 12 races. She was up a little closer than normal through the front stages of the race. She made her move on the far turn, had a 1 ½ length lead entering the stretch and cruised to win by 2 ¾ under Prat. She paid $2.60, $2.10 and $2.10. Meal Ticket was second and Space Talk was third.

“I talked Flavien a little before the race and told him if ‘You wanted to do something a little different, I didn’t mind,’” Hollendorfer said. “I think he was a little nervous about being back today, so he kept her a little closer and it worked anyway. She’s doing good right now, that’s for sure.” Hollendorfer indicated her next race could be the Churchill Distaff Turf Mile on Kentucky Derby day on May 4.

There were a few anxious moments when Ms Bad Behavior looked rank going into the first turn and was pulled up by Mike Smith. “I just didn’t like the way she was moving,” Smith said. “I’d rather be safe than sorry.” Ms Bad Behavior walked off the course showing no distress.

Echo Eddie Stakes: Lieutenant Dan, the morning-line favorite, ran comfortably near the front poked his head in front at the top of the stretch and won the $200,000 race for Cal-bred 3-year-olds going 6 ½ lengths. The winning margin was 2 ¼ lengths over Principe Carlo and Listing. Lieutenant Dan paid $10.40, $5.00 and $3.40 for Steve Miyadi and Geovanni Franco. “He’s still a work in progress,” Miyadi said. “He’s still slow to change leads, not in the morning but in the afternoon. We’ve got some work to do.” And before you ask, yes Lieutenant Dan is named after the movie character. “The name comes from the movie Forrest Gump,” said owner Nick Alexander. “It’s one of my favorite movies. I’ve seen it 20 times.”

Santa Anita Derby: We’ve got a separate story on this race on our website and in print. Just click here. But, as a quick refresher, Bob Baffert finished first and second with Roadster and Game Winner. They battled down the stretch but Roadster, flying on the outside got up by half-a-length in the $1 million race for 3-year-olds over 1 1/8 miles. Both horses qualified for the Kentucky Derby.

“At the eighth pole I knew I was going to win,” Baffert said. “I just didn’t know which one.” The difference might have been the trip as Game Winner was hung out wide for a lot of the race and Smith was able to keep Roadster on the rail, saving ground.

“Mike Smith, he does things that are unbelievable,” Baffert said. “And he did one of those [rides Saturday]. I left him alone [with no instructions] and he was on his own. … They should induct him into the Hall of Fame again.” Roadster paid $8.20, $3.00 and $2.40. Instagrand was third followed by Nolo Contesto, Synthesis and More Ice.

Providencia Stakes: Guess what? When you are a Grade 3 stakes for fillies going a 1 1/8 miles on the turf and you are wedged between the Santa Anita Derby and Santa Anita Handicap, you’re not going to get a lot of love. So, briefly, Hostess rallied in the stretch to beat stablemate Maxim Rate to win by a nose. Both are trained by Callaghan. Van Dyke was the winning jockey. Hostess paid $53.00, $22.00 and $10.40. Lady Prancealot was third.

Santa Anita Handicap: We’ve got a lot of stuff on this race in a story for web and print. Just click here. It’s a wrap of all the other stakes races besides the Santa Anita Derby. But, we’re OK doing a quick refresher. Gift Box battled down the stretch and came out on top of McKinzie to win the prestigious race for older horses going 1 ¼ miles. The margin was a nose.

“To beat a top horse like McKinzie in a photo like that [is unbelievable],” trainer John Sadler said. It was a close photo to everyone but co-owner Kosta Hronis, who bought the horse as a 5-year-old last year with his brother Pete. “I thought we had it,” Hronis said. “I was the only one who left the box. I came straight down, but I did pause until it went up on the board because I kept hearing the crowd moan.”

Gift Box, with Joel Rosario riding, paid $6.20, $2.40 and $2.20. Mongolian Groom was third followed by Campaign, Prime Attraction and Prince of Arabia. Sadler and Hronis Racing won this race last year with Accelerate, who went on to win the Breeders’ Cup Classic. “This is very special,” Sadler said. “I grew up with this race, to win it two years in a row is incredible.”

Santa Anita preview

After a big day of racing, the following day is usual tepid at best. But, can’t remember the last time I’ve seen a Sunday card with five allowance (or allowance/optional claimers) races and one stakes race. First post on the nine-race card is 1 p.m.

The stakes, Grade 3 Las Flores Stakes for older fillies and mares going six furlongs, has a very intriguing story line. Is Dream Tree back to her old form? After winning her first five races, she ran horribly in an eighth-place finish in the La Brea on Dec. 26. Baffert brought her back for works after about a month and she seems to be doing well. She even has a couple of bullet works. Smith returns to ride her.

Emboldened is the 4-1 second choice, assuming the role of the “other Baffert.” She has won two of her four lifetime starts and is coming off a third in the La Brea. Joe Talamo gets the mount.

As a side note, Brave Helios, partly owned by my colleague Eric Sondheimer, is back off his nine-month vacation to run in the first race, an allowance going a mile on the turf. He’s 12-1 on the morning line. Best of luck to him and all horses and hoping for another safe racing day.

The allowance races are the first, third, fourth, fifth and seventh. The first, fourth, seventh and ninth are on the turf. Racing on the downhill turf course was suspended this week after the death of Arms Runner last Sunday.

Here are the field sizes, in order: 10 (3 also eligible), 6, 6, 7, 8, 13, 10 (2 ae), 10, 10 (3 ae).

Bob Ike’s SA pick of the day

SEVENTH RACE: No. 4 Dreams of Valor (10-1)

Let's take a shot with this Craig Dollase-trained gelding, who looks like the controlling speed in this nine-furlong turf event (rails out 20 feet). Not sure he is quite this good or if he wants to run this far, but he should clear under good speed rider Edwin Maldonado and could at least outrun his odds in this spot.

Saturday’s result: As the favorite, The Hunted couldn’t get going soon enough and finished third with a furious stretch rally.

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’s LA pick of the day

SEVENTH RACE: No. 2 Firey Colt (3-1)

He drops into a claiming race for the first time and earned solid Trackmaster speed figures in last pair despite finishing fourth and sixth. He exits a very fast 330-yard dash when fourth in last outing where he galloped out with good energy vs. winner Ray Donovan, who was a Grade I derby qualifier last year.
