Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we say goodbye to another Los Alamitos meeting and congratulations on a fatality-free meeting.
We would like to give you a resolution to the situation involving trainer
When opening day arrives on Wednesday he has no horses entered. But, in the eighth race, the
Tom Robbins, who along with David Jerkens, runs the smartest and best racing office in California, if not beyond, did go on Mike Willman’s Thoroughbred Los Angeles radio show on Sunday morning.
This partial transcript comes courtesy of Ron Flatter of VSiN:
“We’ve been having a lot of communication, our group along with Jerry and his lawyers and Dan [Ward]. We hope there is some resolution. It’s not just a
“Jerry is a wonderful guy and he’s been supportive of California for a lot of years. Hopefully things will work out down the road. Other than that, I can’t really say anything.”
According to Bryce
And, speaking of Del Mar, if I’m going to make it to the opener from Los Angeles, better gas up the car and get going because you know how easy it is to get to the track on opening day, or any big day for that matter. Wave if we’re both parked on I-5 in Oceanside.
Now, let’s finally wrap up the final stewards’ rulings from Santa Anita and some from the first week at Los Alamitos.
--Jockey Edwin Maldonado was fined $100 for using the riding crop more than three times without letting his mount, Boru, respond during the ninth race on June 16. Boru finished second.
--Jockey Norberto Arroyo Jr. was suspended for three days (June 29, 30 and July 4) for careless riding in the first race on June 21. According to the stewards’ minutes, Arroyo’s mount, Street Image, interfered with two horses on the backstretch. Arroyo and his mount were trying to cross over to the rail when he caused Mercy Rule to check and Lincoln City to steady. Arroyo thought the riders should have taken their mounts back, which the stewards disagreed with. Lincoln City finished third, Street Image was fourth and Mercy Rule was ninth in the nine-horse race.
--Owner and pony rider Jose Diaz Romero was suspended and had his license privileges revoked after failing to appear at a hearing to answer charges of violating licenses and fees provisions and conduct detrimental to horse racing. There were no additional details given.
--Jockey Kent Desormeaux was fined $100 for use of the riding crop more than three times without allowing his mount, Ollie’s Candy, a chance to respond. Ollie’s Candy finished second in the Wilshire Stakes. Desormeaux accepted responsibility.
--Jockey Heriberto Figueroa was fined $50 after failing to attend a film review on June 23. Figueroa just accepted the penalty. No other information about the film review was given.
--Trainer William Morey was suspended 45 days under than “trainer’s insurer” rule, which says a trainer is responsible for anything that happens or is done to their horses, after the stewards’ presented evidence that Tick Tock and Gate Speed had ingested a “blood buffer” or “milkshake” on race day, March 29. The suspension is from June 30 to August 13.
--Assistant trainer Miguel Delgado was suspended for 30 days in connection with the above ruling on William Morey. Delgado’s suspension is from June 30 to July 29.
--Jockey Alonso Quinonez was suspended three days (July 7, 11 and 12) for careless riding in the third race at Los Alamitos on June 29. St. Reno, with Quinonez riding in deep stretch, came out twice under a left-handed whip causing interference with the horse on the outside. St. Reno was disqualified from second to third.
--Jockey Ruben Fuentes was fined $500 for using his riding crop more than three times without allowing his mount, Queen Bee to You, to respond. The mare won the Bertrando Stakes by a nose. It was Fuentes fourth violation in the past 60 days.
Los Alamitos thoroughbred review
As we mentioned up top, Los Alamitos ran a fatality-free meeting. Granted it was only nine days, but can you come up with a better outcome for a short meet? I can’t.
The feature on the final day was a maiden special as Los Al runs its big races on Saturday. And, on the last Saturday of the meet, it had Eclipse Award and Breeders’ Cup winner Game Winner romp to an easy five-length win.
Sunday’s feature winner was longshot Edelman, who won a $40,000 maiden special over 5 ½ furlongs. Despite the long price, Edelman was a well thought of horse, having been purchased for $130,000 a year ago.
Edelman paid $52.20 and $10.60 for trainer Peter Miller and jockey Edwin Maldonado. Silent Fury was second Ginobili was third.
The winning margin was 1 3/4 lengths.
Apprentice jockey Jorge Velez, 21, won the riding title with nine wins and Miller won the training title with five.
According to Jack Liebau, the vice president of the Los Alamitos Racing Assn., all sources handle increased for the summer meeting.
“Even though we had hoped to run more days, it turned out to be a struggle to run three days a week,’’ Liebau told Bob Mieszerski of Los Alamitos’ publicity department. “Obviously, the Southern California horse population has shrunk and some categories of horses have just disappeared.
“Although we had trouble at the entry box, handle in all areas – including on track – was up 2% on a comparative day basis over last year.’’
