Hello, my name is John Cherwa, and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we congratulate John Sadler and Hronis on winning the Santa Anita Handicap three straight years.

Saturday’s three Kentucky Derby prep races helped clarify the top of the ticket and answered some questions down the list.

There is little doubt that Authentic’s dominating win in the San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita makes him the favorite for the Kentucky Derby. He beat some pretty good horses including stablemate Thousand Words and Storm the Court, winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. The race us 1 1/16 miles. Authentic, who is undefeated in three starts, will next race in the Santa Anita Derby.

You can read more about the race in the story I did for web and print in The Times. Just click here. You can also find a summary of the race down below.

In New York in the Gotham Stakes, favorite Mischevious Alex, won the mile race by two lengths. He runs for trainer John Servis and is ridden by Kendrick Carmouche. Alex’s next race could very well be to Wood Memorial at Aqueduct.

And, in Tampa, in a real head scratcher, King Guillermo won the Tampa Bay Derby by an easy 4 ¾ lengths. The horse paid $100.40 to win, he second largest payoff in the 40-year history of the race. He is trained by Juan Carlos Avila and ridden by Sammy Camacho.

All three of those horses earned 50 points, which is enough to get into the Kentucky Derby on May 2. But, they are all likely to run one more time. If you come back to the newsletter on Friday, we’ll have Jon White’s Kentucky Derby rankings. We’ll see if he has Authentic on the top.

OK, let’s get to the big races at Santa Anita.

Santa Anita review

Grade 2 $200,000 San Carlos Stakes: Under a perfect ride, Victor Espinoza guided Flagstaff to a 1 ¼-length win in the seven-furlong sprint. Stablemate St. Joe Bay had the lead down the backstretch as Flagstaff was content to sit right off the lead. Flagstaff went four wide entering the stretch and rolled to an easy victory.

Flagstaff paid $4.00, $2.40 and $2.20. Roadster was second followed by McKale, Law Abidin Citizen, Manhattan Up and St. Joe Bay.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

John Sadler (winning trainer): “He waits a little bit when he gets in front so Victor was trying to sit behind as long as he could. Victor told me he got to the front a little quick, he was loaded [Saturday], plenty of horse. He’s really strong.”

Victor Espinoza (winning jockey): “Yeah, it was [a great race]. I tried to sit back a little bit and run at the end. I was worried a little bit on the backside because they slowed down, and I was a bit farther back than I wanted. When I moved out, that was it. It’s just another gear that he has.”

Grade 1 $400,000 Frank E. Kilroe Mile: River Boyne stalked the pace, went around pacesetter Kingly, and then went inside and held off favorite Got Stormy to win in a blanket finish by a neck. River Boyne was second favorite and paid $12.00, $5.20 and $3.40. After Got Stormy, the rest of the field was Next Shares, True Valor, Frontier Market, Sellwood, Ohio, Kingly, Desert Stone and Next Shares.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

Jeff Mullins (winning trainer): “A perfect trip. I told Abel [Cedillo] to try and get the same trip as he did last time [winning the Thunder Road at Santa Anita]. This time he had to go inside instead of outside. Abel has done a great job keeping him in position. That is the way he likes to run and he’s got a really good kick down the lane.”

Abel Cedillo (winning jockey): “Well, thank God my horse can go any where, inside or outside. I was trying to go outside, but when I saw him move up a little bit, I got plenty of room inside. … My horse responded really good. I’m excited, my horse is running really good.”

$75,000 China Doll Stakes: This ungraded stakes was for 3-year-old fillies going a mile on the turf. Warren’s Showtime ran well of the pace in this full field of 13 before rallying late to win by half-a-length. She paid $8.00, $4.20 and $3.00. Stela Star was second and Bella Vita finished third.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

Craig Lewis (winning trainer):She’s a terrific filly. I am just grateful I get to train her. We were very concerned about the 11 hole with a mile and a 14-horse field but Jorge [Velez] did a fantastic job getting her in in the clubhouse turn and then came through a very narrow hole. He’s very brave and so is the filly. We are very pleased with the ride and very pleased with the filly; she is terrific. She definitely knows where the wire is.”

Jorge Velez (winning jockey): “This filly is really nice. She likes going behind horses, she doesn’t care, she goes wherever. She’s really nice, easy to work and always ready for the race. I’ve ridden this filly six or seven times, and I’ve won three stakes with this her. All the time she runs really good in the stretch. She likes to run with pressure at the rail.”

Grade 2 $400,000 San Felipe Stakes: This 1 1/16-mile Kentucky Derby prep was dominated by Authentic winning by 2 ¼ lengths, but it could have much more. He beat a talented group of horses. He led from the start and was never seriously threatened.

Authentic paid $4.80, $3.20 and $2.60. Honor A.P. was second followed by Storm the Court, Thousand Words, Wrecking Crew, Fort McHenry and Swagsational.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

Bob Baffert (winning trainer): “He stumbled a little bit leaving there, and I anticipated that, but he’s so quick on his feet. Once he got him around the turn–I know they were going quick and I knew Thousand Words was closer. … When I saw the fractions, 22 and change, it was fast, but he was doing it so easy. The really good ones do that and I just love the way he looked down the backside. Turning for home I saw Mike Smith coming with that good horse (Honor A.P.) and I said, ‘We’ll see what he’s made of’ and I was hoping he wouldn’t do his shenanigans (ducking in).

“But he handled it well and he wasn’t tired. He’s a special horse and this was probably one of the toughest prep races that we’ve seen so far. Those were really good horses in there. We hope to stay healthy and run in the Santa Anita Derby (April 4).

Drayden Van Dyke (winning jockey): “It was a beautiful trip. He took a little tiny stumble out of the gate, but it wasn’t enough to cost us. I was just in cruise control. I was seeing if anybody was going to test me to make me pick it up. I kept him going a few times, just to keep him focused, but he got off amazing and it seems like there’s more in the tank. … I think he’s just getting more mature. That was his first time going two turns.”

Grade 1 $600,000 Santa Anita Handicap: Things weren’t looking so good for John Sadler and Hronis Racing when they woke up and favorite Gift Box had a minor ankle swelling. So, they scratched the horse. But, for the third time in a row Sadler and Hronis went on to win the Big ‘Cap with a different horse. They won with Gift Box last year and Accelerate the year before that.

The winner was Combatant, who held by a neck to win the 1 ¼-mile race. Combatant paid $21.20, $10.20 and $4.00. Multiplier was second followed by Midcourt, Brown Storm, Endorsed, Hofburg and Two Thirty Five. I got another story on this race that is online and in print. Just click here.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

John Sadler (winning trainer): “Obviously we wanted to run Gift Box. This horse we were considering somewhere else, but I put him in as an insurance policy. He trained really well and it looked like he had no distance limitations to me, so I thought it was a good chance to try him. He’s got some pretty good races on his form. He won his last start at Churchill before he came out here. We put some blinkers on him, did some minor changes, and he has responded well.

“We are lucky enough to have several horses in this division. We have Gift Box, Higher Power, and Combatant. We think there are opportunities for these horses in different races. These are problems we like to have. We like to have a lot of good horses. There’s never a problem having too many horses that can run. We can run them in different spots.”

Joel Rosario (winning jockey): “It’s beautiful. It was nice to win and to win it for John. I feel sorry that my other horse (Gift Box) scratched, but this was a nice thing to make up for that. He was in a good spot. It looked like they didn’t go too fast – it was a good pace for us. He was very comfortable where he was, and I was happy with how he progressed.”

Santa Anita preview

The field sizes remain strong, relatively speaking, on Sunday’s eight-race card starting at 1 p.m. Half the races are on the turf and there is a pretty good feature, the Grade 3 $100,000 Santa Ysabel for 3-year-old fillies going 1 1/16 miles. It’s a good prep for the Kentucky Oaks.

The favorite, at 4-5, is Donna Veloce for trainer Simon Callaghan and jockey Flavien Prat. She won her first race, finished second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies and then second in the Starlet to Bast, who has since been retired.

The second choice is Speech, at 4-1, for Michael McCarthy and Geovanni Franco. She has won one of three races, a nine length-maiden special. Speech was a $190,000 purchase while Donna Veloce went for $800,000.

Here are the field sizes, in order: 8, 6, 7, 8, 8, 9, 6, 11 (1 also eligible).

Ciaran Thornton’s SA picks of the day

RACE EIGHT: No. 6 Coast of Roan (8-1)

Coast of Roan was a big winner for us last time when Umberto Rispoli rode for the second time and perfectly timed the late run for the win. Rispoli stays here instead of riding for trainer Eric Kruljac who also owns Lincoln City. Umberto wins for Kruljac so staying here means he thinks this horse has a better chance. He is winning 60% for trainer Doug O’Neill and 80% in the money. When Umberto rides for O’Neill the horse is live. We are getting 8-1 value today on the morning line although I am thinking it likely goes much lower. If rain takes this race off turf it should be no issue as well. Use Lincoln City as well as this is Mike Smith’s only mount of the day and it’s the last race at 15-1.

Saturday’s result: Sash broke great and tracked in third into the stretch but lost steam and faded.

Next Shares flew late to just miss running third.

Chris Wade’s LA pick of the day

RACE THREE: No. 3 Seattle Encounter (7-2)

He has been second in each of his last three efforts against quality rivals and all figures earned from said affairs are very competitive in this evenly matched event. In his most recent outing 16 nights ago, this 5-year-old gelding broke a tad slow at the gate opening but was running well in the fourth position into the turn before having to take up while in close quarters while losing some racing momentum and valuable ground. He fought back mightily and finished second as he narrowed the gap at the wire. There’s a good mixture of speed horses and closers in this race and Seattle Encounter is versatile enough to adjust regardless of how the race sets up. I’ll take him at this price.
