Horse racing newsletter: Stewards’ rulings are back

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome to our horse racing newsletter as we have one of those rare Monday racing cards not on a holiday.

Before we get to the good stuff, I wanted to call your attention to Sunday’s 10th race at Del Mar, a Cal-bred stakes race. We’ll get to the winner later in the newsletter. What’s worth mentioning is that in the stretch, Camino Del Paraiso likely clipped heels causing him to stumble and drop his rider, the talented Drayden Van Dyke.

Great spoiler alert, everyone is fine. Luckily, the horse was at the back of the pack, so Van Dyke, falling to the outside was OK. In fact, he showed more energy getting in to and out of the ambulance than I do in my morning workout.

But, while Camino Del Pariso continued to run past the finish line, it was jockey Tiago Pereira, aboard Desmond Doss, who kept the rider-less horse to his inside and under control until the outrider could corral the horse. TVG also noted Pereira’s exemplary horsemanship.

I can tell you first hand, in horse racing, there are few things scarier things than a rider-less horse going full speed. Pereira unquestionably knew this because a loose horse can run into things that can have devastating consequences. Pereira’s actions kept that from being anything to worry about. We’ll be checking to see if Pereira gets kudos in the stewards’ minutes.

And speaking of stewards’ minutes …

Stewards’ rulings

With a week off, the stewards have been less busy with no racing, but these rulings come from the first week of Del Mar. No big bombshells, but, as always, worth looking at.

--Trainer Jeff Mullins was fined $200 after KP All Systems Go showed up wearing toe grabs on his hind shoes for the Oceanside Stakes, a turf race on July 10. He finished seventh in the race.

--Apprentice jockey Jerick Ello was fined $100 for using his riding crop more than three times on his mount, Dynamic Duo, without giving the horse a chance to respond during the third race on July 10. Dynamic Duo finished fourth in the seven-horse race. The horse won $3,900, with the jockey’s standard share being $390. Ello admitted his error and said he would be more careful.

--Jockey Aaron Gryder was fined $50 for being late to the paddock to ride Unbridled’s Skye in the 10th race on July 10. The horse finished 11th in the 11-horse race.

--Trainer Alfredo Marquez was fined $500 when Storming Lady tested positive for Phenylbutazone, an anti-inflammatory, after winning the fifth race at Santa Anita on March 1. Marquez said his medications are administered by his veterinarian and could “offer no other explanation.” It was a Class 4C violation, which does not carry with it a disqualification or purse redistribution.

--Jockey Drayden Van Dyke was fined $200 for using his riding crop more than three times on his mount, Buyback, without giving the horse a chance to respond in the ninth race on July 11. Buyback finished fourth in the seven-horse race and the horse earned $2,220 in purse money. The standard jockey share would have been $222. Van Dyke acknowledged the violation. It was his second offense in the past 60 days.

--Owner Ahmed Zayat was suspended when he failed to show for a hearing over an alleged unpaid bill of $600 to horse transportation company known as B and S Equine Enterprises. The suspension was to start on July 20. During this time, Zayat is denied entrance to any race track facility in California.

Del Mar review

There were a couple of stakes races on the Sunday card, so that’s where we’ll focus this report.

Grade 2 $200,000 Eddie Read Stakes: This was a decent turf race for horses going 1 1/8 miles. United, the heavy favorite, set up nicely on the outside of pace-setting Neptune’s Storm and then waited until the right time mid-stretch and then surged ahead to win by half-a-length.

United paid $4.80, $3.40 and $2.60. Sharp Samurai was second followed by Neptune’s Storm, Bowies Hero, Originaire and Cleopatra’s Strike.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

Richard Mandella (winning trainer): “We ran him short (less distance) just to pick his head up. Sometimes you run them long too many times they get stale. But this horse is training so well on the dirt, month after month, I’m going to consider running him in the Pacific Classic. I’ve been thinking all summer about it. We’ll think about the Del Mar Handicap on turf, too, but if he keeps training on dirt as well as he has been…”

Flavien Prat (winning jockey): “The race came up perfect. He broke real well and we got a great spot. We went along fine and when I asked him, he just went on with it. When you ride a really good horse like this, it makes things easier. Good horses do good things; they put you in good spots. It’s all easier with his kind.”

$125,000 California Dreamin’ Stakes: It was a pretty full field of 11 for these Cal-breds going 1 1/16 miles on the turf. Up top, we mentioned what happened at the back, but how about the front? Galilean stalked nicely and then heading into the stretch, went wide and pulled ahead to win by a half-length.

Galilean paid $4.40, $3.80 and $2.80. Whooping Jay was second and Brandothebartender finished third.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

John Sadler (winning trainer): “A beautiful ride by Flavien [Prat]. A ground-saving trip and he liked the turf just as we thought he would. We like to run twice here so we’ll look for something at the end of the meet, but nothing really jumps out off the top of my head right now. We’ll see.”

Flavien Prat (winning jockey): “It’s going well [wining four stakes in six days]. Everything seems to be good. My agent (Derek Lawson) is working hard – he better be – and I seem to be riding well. This horse [Sunday] put me in a good spot, I was able to save ground and he ran well to finish.”

Advertisement

Here’s a little trivia for you. Lawson, Prat’s agent, has guided the jockey’s U.S. career brilliantly. But last year, before the Arkansas Derby, Lawson pointed Prat to ride Galilean instead of Omaha Beach, as he had the first call on both. Well, Omaha Beach ended up the Kentucky Derby favorite. Sure, didn’t seem like a smart move.

But then, Omaha Beach scratches out of the Derby. Maximum Security wins the Derby only to be disqualified, moving up Country House. Who was his jockey? Well, by me asking the question you know the answer, Prat. That move was somewhere between blind, dumb luck and Einstein-like genius. You choose.

What is clear, if you were to name the top jockeys in the country, Prat doesn’t have very many names, if any, in front of him.

Del Mar preview

In what may be the only Monday card until Labor Day, Del Mar has 10 races with all of the even ones on the turf. It’s the usual post of 2 p.m. There are no stakes races but there are four allowance/optional claimers.

The feature looks to be the eighth, which is an allowance/optional claimer for horses going a mile on the turf. The purse is $53,000. The favorite, at 5-2, is Mesuit for trainer Carla Gaines and jockey Umberto Rispoli. This 6-year-old gelding has won two-of-13 lifetime and is coming off a second in the Siren Lure Stakes at Santa Anita. He was off from May of last year until June of this year.

The second favorite is Untamed Domain for John Sadler and Juan Hernandez. He has won two-of-15 lifetime and will be making his West Coast debut. He was previously trained by Graham Motion and has never raced west of Kentucky. He was racing a lot of graded stakes and finished second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Del Mar in 2017. His last race was Sept. 5 of last year.

Here are the field sizes, in order: 6, 8, 10, 11 (3 also eligible), 12, 11, 10 (1 ae), 6, 9, 12 (1 ae).

Bob Ike’s DMr pick of the day

FOURTH RACE: No. 5 Rio Oro (3-1)

Sophomore gelding from the Jeff Mullins stable is likely to go off favored in this maiden turf event but he should be ready to graduate with a clean trip. Euro import encountered all kinds of trouble in his U.S. debut on May 30 (broke slowly, took up in mid-stretch) before finishing on his own courage and galloping out strongly. He can definitely run and will be tough to deny in this spot.

Sunday’s result: Neptune’s Storm (7-2) made the lead but wasn’t able to shake clear from the winner at any point, finally cracked late and wound up third in the Grade 2 stakes.

Ciaran Thornton’s DMr pick of the day

RACE FOUR: No. 2 Munning’s Pilot (12-1)

Munning’s Pilot is 12-1 with Flavien Prat riding for Richard Baltas. This tandem is winning 50% right now so if Prat got the call Monday it shows Baltas means business second start off the layoff. They take blinkers off and Baltas is 23% on this move. The horse also races protected today. Prat is named to ride Bob Baffert’s AE however in post 14 it’s a slim chance that horse draws in. Prat also rode the favorite Rio Ocho in the US Debut in May. He chooses the Baltas horse over that one. Abel Cedillo rides Rio Ocho for Jeff Mullins and he is 0 for 11 for that trainer. Wide open race with a beatable favorite I am looking for value here for my Pick 5 and not using the favorite.

Sunday’s result: Brandothebartender sat perfectly off the pace but came just a little too late to run third. On the gallop out he passed the winner. Next out, watch out.

Trainer: Steve Knapp. Claimed–Bodega by Little Red Feather Racing. Trainer: Philip D'Amato. Scratched–none.

VODKA TWIST pressed the pace outside, dropped back a bit and chased up the backstretch, bid alongside the leader into the far turn, dueled and gained the lead near the quarter pole, put away that rival to the inside then held the runner-up at bay. DEBT MONGER reserved in the early stages, raced two wide, went between runners on the second turn, angled four wide leaving the bend, closed from the outside but was not enough to best the winner. ALL I CAN SAY pulled early to around the half-mile marker, angled out into the stretch and summoned a late effort to earn the show. SPEAKEROFTHEHOUSE three wide into the first turn, tracked off the rail, five wide into the far turn, six wide exiting the bend, showed a mild response and picked up a minor award. BODEGA three wide into the first turn, trailed off the inside, moved further out nearing the second turn, six wide into the bend and seven wide into the stretch then passed tired rivals. GO FOR A RIDE broke out, sped to the front and set the pace off the inside, inched away on the backstretch, dueled two wide around the second turn, relinquished the lead near the quarter pole and weakened in the final furlong.

MOANA LUNA tracked off the inside, bid four wide on the turn, pressured the winner in the drive but lacked the needed late punch in the final sixteenth. HUDSON RIVER PARK settled early while widest up the backstretch, crept closer around the turn, came four wide into the lane, drifted in late and held the show. SHARP SPEAKER chased from the inside, came out into the lane, drifted inward in the stretch and finished willingly. FIGHT ME sped to the front and crossed over, angled to the rail on the turn, lost command into the stretch and weakened.
