Racing! Will the Breeders’ Cup stay at Santa Anita?

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we get ready for Belmont Stakes week.

Among the many subplots that will be playing out in the final three weeks of the Santa Anita season is will this crown jewel of the Stronach empire be hosting the Breeders’ Cup in November?

Craig Fravel, the head guy at the Breeders’ Cup, testified before a California assembly special meeting attended by virtually no one that the Breeders’ Cup was “scheduled” to be at Santa Anita. Not an endorsement but not a death knell either.

And then there was a third horse fatality in nine days when Kochees could not be saved despite extraordinary measures to save him. Santa Anita has not had any fatalities since then, about a week.

I’ll be in New York this week for the Belmont and have requested some time with Fravel. There is no confirmation that will happen but it would be pretty weak if it didn’t.

All of this leads up to a column written by my friend, Tim Sullivan, columnist at the Louisville Courier Journal. He’s top shelf, multiple award winner, including an Eclipse Award. He makes the case that the Breeders’ Cup should be moved to Churchill Downs. You can read the full column here.

Here are some excerpts:

“The Breeders’ Cup commitment to Santa Anita is unbroken but may be untenable.

“Thoroughbred racing’s so-called ‘world championships,’ the sport’s biggest showcase outside of the Triple Crown, are still scheduled for Nov. 1 and 2 at the picturesque plant at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains.

“Yet the death of 26 horses at Santa Anita since Dec. 26, the mounting pressures and investigations that have resulted and the inherent risks in tempting fate all argue for a change of venue, and most likely a return to Churchill Downs. …

“What began as a drumbeat now sounds like a whole percussion section. What has been the most postcard-pretty Breeders’ Cup site now seems the most problematic. …

“Now, after … more fatalities, the 14-member Breeders’ Cup Board of Directors must weigh whether it can afford to show solidarity with Santa Anita or should move its main event for the sake of the sport.

“There’s no way to hold a Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita this year without dead horses being a dominant theme, and horsemen living in fear of another catastrophic breakdown. However improbable, the possibility of a Breeders’ Cup fatality at Santa Anita is so fraught with peril that to run that risk this year seems like folly.”

Tim goes on to say that there is no guarantee any other site would be any safer. He also points out that nine of the 14 Breeders’ Cup board members have ties to Kentucky horse farms. The board meets the last week of June after Santa Anita closes on June 23.

Of course, I would like to see it stay at Santa Anita but it pretty much has to run the table as far as safety for the remainder of the season. And that’s very possible. If you can do six weeks, what’s to say you can’t do the next three weeks?

If that happens the Breeders’ Cup will be in a tough spot. No one, absolutely no one, wants another breakdown, but sadly it would probably make the decision to move easier.

It’s unlikely we’ll know the decision before the board meets. After all, if it could, the Breeders’ Cup logo’s version of “E pluribus unum” would be “When we have something to announce, we’ll announce it.”

Even though Fravel is the top guy, the decision to stay or move will be made by the committee, but possibly after a recommendation. How that turns out will likely define his tenure at the Breeders’ Cup.

If Santa Anita stays clean and the event is moved to Louisville, what will that say about his appearance before the California legislature?

Yes, there’s a lot left to tell on this story.

Santa Anita review

A couple of notes before we get to the feature. The first race winner, Camby, has Rocco Baldelli, manager of the Minnesota Twins as his co-breeder. That factoid comes courtesy of TVG’s Kurt Hoover. … And, in that same race horse Silenced and jockey Tiago Pereira checked out OK after the 3-year-old gelding blew the turn heading into the stretch with Pereira ending up on the turf and the outrider grabbing Silenced. It was a five-furlong turf race. Is it my imagination or do a higher than normal number of horses blow the turn? Another safety risk? Hope not. (Yet, they moved the Monrovia Stakes off the turf and onto the dirt at that distance while leaving all the mile races on the grass.)

The feature was the $150,000 Cinema Stakes for 3-year-olds going 1 1/8 miles on the turf. Neptune’s Storm, under a thoughtful ride by Drayden Van Dyke went to the front with about two furlongs to go and won by a length over Parsimony.

Neptune’s Storm paid $5.00, $3.00 and $2.40. King of Speed was third.

“The thing about him is he’ll rate,” said winning trainer Richard Baltas. “He doesn’t have to have the lead . . . but he came home fast. I didn’t have to tell Drayden anything. He rode the horse last time. I just told him to have him up close.”

Van Dyke made it seem like it wasn’t a difficult trip.

“Yes, we got away with some soft fractions and that helped,” Van Dyke said. “I learned from riding him last time and then working him in the mornings that when horses come to him on his outside, he’ll re-engage and fight back. On the gallop out today, horses came to him and he took off. He should like more distance.”
