Racing! Gift Box, Maximum Security return this weekend

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we continue to wind down the Santa Anita meeting.

It’s only a week after the end of the Triple Crown season, but we have a couple of good races that are worth looking at, one for older horses and one for 3-year-olds.

There is the Grade 2 $600,000 Stephen Foster, under the lights at Churchill Downs on Saturday night. The lightly raced Gift Box is the 3-1 favorite. The 6-year-old horse finished second last out in the Gold Cup to Vino Rosso by ¾-length. The Stephen Foster is 1 1/8 miles.

And, there is the return of Maximum Security in Sunday’s Pegasus Stakes at Monmouth. When last we saw Maximum Security, he was being led away from the winner’s circle at the Kentucky Derby after being disqualified for interference.

Since then, his name has been in more lawsuits than your favorite personal injury attorney. His name is more famous than the eventual winner of the Kentucky Derby, Country House. Truth be told, if Flavien Prat wasn’t his jockey, I might have erased his name from my mind.

Country House may resurface at the Jim Dandy or the Travers.

And then there is Omaha Beach, who was the Kentucky Derby favorite until he had to scratch because of an entrapped epiglottis. He has recovered more slowly than thought and was just recently returned to Southern California. He’s scheduled to go in the Haskell, but since he hasn’t resumed training, anything is possible.

So, that’s a quick look at where the horses you may know about have landed.

Santa Anita review

The feature on Friday was a $77,000 allowance for horses going a mile on the turf. Higher Power, making his first start on the grass, held on through the stretch to win by half-a-length.

“We purchased him out of a sale in March and his previous trainer, Mike Stidham, said that he thought he’d like the grass,” winning trainer John Sadler told Mike Willman of Santa Anita.

Irad Ortiz Jr. rode him in the Gold Cup and he said he thought a mile and one eighth would probably be better for him. We wanted to try the grass and it looks like the change in surface suited him well.”

Drayden Van Dyke rode the winner. Higher Power paid $6.40, $4.20 and $2.60. Ritzy A.P. was second and Souter finished third.

Santa Anita preview

Santa Anita has a nine-race card starting at 1 p.m. The interesting thing to look at are the advance scratches, which may or may not have come from the super-panel that is looking to determine if a horse is at risk.

There are five horses that were scratched by Friday afternoon. First race: Finallygotabentley (trainer-Derek Meredith); Third: Suprema (Keith Desormeaux); Sixth: Thalia (Phil D’Amato); Seventh: Mason Dixon (Doug O’Neill); Ninth: Clever One (Paddy Gallagher). Not saying these horses were ruled off by the panel, just that they were scratched on Friday for Saturday’s races.

Apparently, there are no announcements of which horses did not pass the scrutiny of the super panel. Hope I’m wrong but I couldn’t find one. So much for transparency when the sport never needed it more.

The feature is eighth race, the $100,000 Thor’s Echo Handicap for Cal-breds going six furlongs. The favorite, at 9-5, is Desert Law for trainer Carla Gaines and jockey Rafael Bejarano. He is four-for-14 lifetime and won an allowance two back.

Coil Me Home is second favorite at 2-1 for Richard Baltas and Van Dyke. He is two-for-nine lifetime. It is the first stakes race for either horse.

Here are the field sizes, in order: 5, 9, 4, 10 (1 also eligible), 5, 11, 9, 7, 11 (1 also eligible).

Ciaran Thornton’s SA pick of the day

RACE SIX: No. 5 Charmingslew (15-1)

Charmingslew’s jockey Mike Smith has one ride today on this 15-1 morning line horse from trainer Neil French. Old-school horseplayers should play the connections alone. Automatically, I am intrigued seeing this tandem and this price. The horse bobbled at the start in April under Smith at this distance and still won going gate-to-wire and then was sixth last out off a seven-week break. Second start off the layoff and races protected Saturday in this allowance race where we have been seeing some big prices of late. The five post is also the second-place post at this distance on turf. This is a great betting race.

Friday’s result: Capture the Sea was as live as they come and despite being mugged at the start by the favorite, who veered into everyone, ran fifth. Two jockey objections were for naught and the result was left unchanged. Watch this horse next out with an un-interfered trip.

Ed Burgart’s LA pick of the day

SIXTH RACE: No. 2 Special Of Course (5-2)

He was well regarded in two starts as a 2-year-old last year and looks fit for first 2019 outing based on solo gate drills of 12.2 and 18.1 at 220 and 350 yards respectively. In last sixth-place Golden State Million trial outing eight months ago, he broke poorly while getting bumped at the start when sixth vs. talented Apollitical Pence, winner of this year’s Heritage Place Futurity. Drivven, the 6-5 morning-line favorite, looks like a trial maiden based on three consecutive runnerup tries.
