Racing! Taking a break before racing resumes on Friday

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we look deeper into the jockeys no-whip card on Friday.

Friday is the next biggest day of the meeting. It starts with a California Horse Racing Board meeting that morning to determine how much authority it has should Santa Anita decide it wants to transfer any of its dates. Then, it continues with a purpose pitch by the Jockey Guild, which plans to run the card under futuristic rules where the jockeys aren’t allowed to use the riding crop.

There was speculation that both trainers and the betting public would stay away from the card. Well, we have half that answer. The trainers weren’t looking to make a statement. Here are the current field sizes for Friday, in order: 8, 6, 5, 9, 11, 4, 7, 9. Doesn’t look that out of whack. I do know there was no organized effort by the trainers to freeze the entry box and make a point.

So, let’s look at the jockeys. Well, J.C. Diaz has six mounts; Edwin Maldonado and Geovanni Franco has five; Tiago Pereira and Ruben Fuentes have four. Drayden Van Dyke, and others, have three.

So, who’s missing? Mike Smith and Flavien Prat. They are both out of town at Keeneland and Oaklawn. So, nothing to read into that.

Rafael Bejarano, a superior jockey, is only named on one horse.

Joel Rosario has packed his bags and gone to Keeneland.

Also named on a horse on Friday is Victor Espinoza, who is not a member of the guild. Technically, he wouldn’t have to abide by the guild directive of no whips. However, according to his agent, Brian Beach, Victor plans to ride without a whip if that is what the other jockeys are doing.

So, all of this will make Friday very interesting. This is a chance for the bettors to weigh in on the no-whip rule. Will they be passive? Will they affect the mutuel handle? Stay tuned to our web, print and newsletter editions to be among the first to know.

Whatever happens, Friday should be very interesting.

Before we forget, and how could we, all horses made it back to their barn safely on Sunday.

And, on another note, Santa Anita had previously planned only three-day racing weeks the next two weeks. So, sorry to disappoint, but the newsletter won’t be back until Friday.

Who goofed, I’ve got to know?

Not sure this is an official “who goofed” but it does bear clarifying. In Sunday’s newsletter, I declared Vasiika the best $40,000 claim ever. Well, taking nothing away from Vasilika, but on Oct. 16, 2016, Peter Miller picked up Stormy Liberal from a 6 ½-furlong down the hill claimer at Santa Anita. He won that race. The price? Yup, you can guess. Well, two Breeders’ Cup wins and an Eclipse Award later you can make a pretty compelling case of Stormy Liberal being the best $40,000 claim. Long as we’re talking Peter Miller, if you missed it on Saturday, Cal-bred horse of the year Spiced Perfection won the Grade 1 Madison Stakes at Keeneland. Congrats.

Santa Anita review

We don’t see a lot of longshots in the Santa Anita stakes schedule but Sunday was one of them as Danuska’s My Girl won the Grade 3 $100,000 Las Flores Stakes for older fillies and mares going six furlongs by 3 ¼ lengths.

The surprise in the race, however, was the second straight lackluster performance from Dream Tree. She finished a non-threatening fifth.

Danuska’s My Girl paid $43.20, $15.60 and $8.60. Emboldened was second and Show It No Mo It was third.

“Danuska’s got such a big heart,” Franco told Mike Willman of Santa Anita. “I knew it the second time I rode her, she showed me she had lots of hear [Sunday], the only way to steal this race was to just go. I knew she would fight them off whenever they got close to her and she sure did.

“She could feel [runner-up] Emboldened coming and she just kept on going. I let her know Dream Tree was coming and she responded well, she was still finishing strong.”

Jerry Hollendorfer was the winning trainer
