Horse racing newsletter: Tiz the Law dominates

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter, as Mike Tierney gives his opinion on TVG’s Del Mar crew.

If there was any doubt before, there is absolutely no doubt now, Tiz the Law is the big favorite to win the Kentucky Derby. The colt added the Travers Stakes at Saratoga to his win in the shortened Belmont Stakes to prove to be the best 3-year-old in the country.

He dueled with Uncle Chuck early, but then he dispatched the Southern California shipper to win by 5 ½ lengths. It could have been more, but jockey Manny Franco geared down near the finish line.

Tiz the Law paid $3.00, $2.40 and $2.10. Caracaro finished second, followed by Max Player, South Bend, Country Grammer, Uncle Chuck and Shivaree. This will take Uncle Chuck out of the Kentucky Derby picture, especially with only two more preps races, one Sunday and one next week.

Tierney’s take on TV

We’re back with another contribution from Mike Tierney, our newly anointed horse racing TV critic. Since about 99% of people experience racing through television, this is a must-cover area. Mike has done just about everything in the journalism business and at a high level. He was even a sports-on-TV critic at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Mike, let us have it.

“Watching televised races from Del Mar nowadays is akin to viewing a tourism video of our favorite international summer vacation destination. The spectacle is eye candy, but it offers an agonizing reminder that we likely cannot experience either firsthand this year.

“For those of us forced to deep-six plans to patronize the meet Where the Surf Meets the Turf, TVG has provided a suitable alternative. The network pours considerable resources and emphasis into its coverage. The on-air crew numbers as high as six. Races elsewhere operating in Del Mar’s time window often receive short shrift, getting squeezed in between the extensive minutes devoted to TVG’s pet track.

“Some features, such as taped interviews with the connections of horses in upcoming races and live chats with race-caller Larry Collmus, work better than others. (“Hello Horses?” Borrrr-ing.) Fortunately, the dull paean to horse owners in the pre-race paddock scene appears to have been phased out.

“Deftly playing traffic cop for the army of analysts is Todd Schrupp, who drops in dollops of snarky humor. (“Do you like Columbian Gold?” he asked Simon Bray of a particular horse.)

“Sometimes, Schrupp gets carried away, especially when chattering into the post parade or pulling a Pincay by interrupting or talking over a colleague. After one of them scored with a longshot pick Friday, he said, perhaps with himself in mind, ‘And that’s why you need to watch the show without the mute button on.’

“The best of the rest is the affable Bray, though the British accent gives him a natural edge over his teammates. Christina Blacker exudes expertise. Britney Eurton displays the chops that has landed her on NBC’s race programs. Mike Joyce mixes welcome wisecracks into his analysis. The underused Joaquin Jaime conducts informative interviews as well as anyone.

“TVG got a scare when the meet’s second weekend was wiped out because of a COVID-19 outbreak among jockeys. Just after they had put down stakes, there was concern over possibly having to pull them up and head home.

“But the racing resumed, as did TVG’s coverage, albeit seemingly with fewer shots of the iconic scenes of waves crashing against the nearby shore. Perhaps the network wants to avoid reminding us of the beach vacations we are missing out on.”

Thanks, Mike. Can’t wait for your next analysis.

Del Mar review

Saturday was the full card of 11 races, as there will be on Sunday, except with two graded stakes instead of one. So, let’s get right to the big races.

Grade 2 $150,000 Best Pal Stakes: This six-furlong race for 2-year-olds could be an early glimpse into next year’s Kentucky Derby. Or, it might not be, especially when the winner is a gelding. (Only nine gelding have won the Derby.) Weston got up in deep stretch to edge Girther to win by a neck. The favorite, Roderick, a shipper from Kentucky, competed early but tired badly in the stretch and finished last in the seven-horse race.

Weston paid $12.20, $6.80 and $4.60. Girther was second, and Sonic Brees was given third place after Ambivalent was disqualified from third to fourth for interference.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

Ryan Hanson (winning trainer): “He broke sharp, just like we wanted him to, but then it looked like he just sat there for a minute. I got a little nervous when he got shuffled back, but then he got back up there and fought on. The time was not very impressive, but that doesn’t matter. I didn’t think we were going to win it. I thought we’d be second to the Peter Miller horse, who had had a trip over the track. But I’m just really happy. We’ll see how he looks tomorrow and let him tell us what to do.”

Drayden Van Dyke (winning jockey): “Boy, I had to work hard for that one. But I’m glad I did. I was happy to win it for Ryan Hanson. He such a kind man and a good horse trainer. And this horse showed some class, too. Ryan told me he never got to paddock him [prior to the race], but he was just standing in there like an old pro. I knew I got there in the end and I’m real glad I did.”

Grade 2 $150,000 Yellow Ribbon Stakes: This race was for fillies and mares going 1 1/16 miles on the turf and it resulted with a stirring finish with Bodhicitta winning by a nose. No surprise that Flavien Prat was the winning jockey, his eighth stakes win in 12 racing days.

Bodhicitta paid $11.20, $5.40 and 4.00. Tonahutu was second, followed by Harmless, Lady Prancealot, Beau Recall, Summering and Keeper Ofthe Stars.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

Richard Baltas (winning trainer): “The race went about like I thought it would, I didn’t see much speed in the race. She has more tactical speed than some of the horses, like Beau Recall and others who come from the back. He (Flavien Prat) saved a lot of ground and we needed all of it. When he won with her a while back, he said ‘This is my next (multiple-stakes winner) Vasilika’. It means a lot because he’s ridden a lot of good horses. We may go here in the Mabee [Stakes on Sept. 5.]”

Flavien Prat (winning jockey): “It’s been going well. I’m sitting on good horses. I had a good post (the 2), so I was able to get right on the fence and save ground. I knew they were going slow, but my filly has a good turn of foot and we got it done.”

Del Mar preview

The closing day of this week’s races has 11 races at the usual start time. Five of the races are on the turf and there is one graded stakes. Four horses can be counted on to win their very first race. The feature is the Grade 3 $125,000 La Jolla Stakes for 3-year-olds going 1 1/16 miles on the turf.

The favorite, at 5-2, is Smooth Like Strait for trainer Michael McCarthy and jockey Umberto Rispoli. He is coming off a win in the War Chant at Churchill Downs, although he has spent is career in Southern California having won three of seven starts.

Perhaps the more interesting horse is Storm the Court, at 3-1, for Peter Eurton and Flavien Prat. He won last year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and hasn’t won since. He had a third in the San Felipe, a sixth in the Arkansas Derby and a third last out in the Ohio Derby as the favorite. Clearly not destined for the Kentucky derby, he is trying the turf for the first time. Post is around 6:30.

Here are the field sizes, in order: 9, 6, 9, 9, 8, 10, 7, 8, 9, 8, 12 (2 also eligible).

Bob Ike’s DMr pick of the day

TENTH RACE: No. 6 Smooth Like Strait (5-2)

Not creative today as I think the favorite in the featured La Jolla Handicap is going to take this field gate to wire. The Michael McCarthy-trained colt was last seen winning a $100,000 stakes race at Churchill Downs and is proven over the Del Mar course. Making his first start since May 23, the work tab looks steady, so look for a formful result here.

Saturday’s result: Spud (9-2) broke much better in his second start, pressed outside the winner in a perfect spot, then was no match at the top of the stretch in a very disappointing performance.

Ciaran Thornton’s DMr pick of the day

RACE SIX: No. 1 Luvluv (8-1)

A first time Umberto Rispoli angle while making the first start since January for trainer John Sadler. This tandem is three-of-six at the meet thus far. Racing protected today at the same level as the January debut race, we are getting a nice 8-1 morning line value.

Saturday’s result: Can’t say I was a fan of the ride on Crooked Finger Ray, positioned poorly and came on late for third. Would love to see Rispoli ride this horse next out.

Chris Wade’s LA pick of the day

RACE EIGHT: No. 3 Badhabit Jess (9-2)

He represents a solid jockey/trainer combination that’s winning an 18% ratio and comes in after finishing a much better than looked third in his last start 110 nights ago in a very much needed effort over the racing surface. A Grade I finalist during his 2-year-old campaign, the gelding broke slow and inward to be bumped back and crossed by quicker rivals in that outing. He lost two lengths in the process before angling out for a clear path and rushing in the second half to finish third. He’s back against a solid field in the Flight 109 Stakes at 350 yards on Sunday, but the 6-5 favorite Tequila Sangria has not raced in over seven months and top contender Corona Jumpim MRL usually does his best work at 400 yards. The time could be right for Badhabit Jess to surprise at a good price.

DEHYDRATION broke in and bumped SOUTH BOOT SHIRLEY leaving the gate, dueled with that rival for command, inched away on the turn, responded when challenged once again a furlong out and turned away the runner-up, moving clear late under a drive.

A MELIS had good early speed from the outside, cleared the field and crossed over to the inside, controlled the pace up the backstretch, padded the lead around the far turn, kept to task in the drive and won easily. HOT ON THE TRAIL off a bit slow to begin, went three to four wide on the first turn, chased off the rail throughout, finished well while unable to threaten the winner but was clearly second best. TIME FOR EBBY threw head and off slow to begin, settled, inside, asked at the three-eights and put to a drive shortly after, came out at the top of the lane, drifted out in the stretch and gained the show. FLYING BUSINESS went three wide into the first turn, chased outside a rival, took aim at the leader up the backstretch, lost ground around the far turn, angled in on that bend and faded in the lane.

MASTER RYAN stalked inside, saved ground around the turn, angled out in the stretch and finished well. CROOKED FINGER RAY stalked off the rail, two wide around the turn, produced a mild rally and bested the rest. N. K. ROCKET MAN chased a bit off the rail, steadied at the three-eighths pole, moved inside and came in tight quarters from the quarter pole to the stretch, gained a clear path and kept on for a minor award. JUNGLE ROAR traveled along the inside, steadied off heels at the three-eighths, saved ground inside, angled out at the top of the lane and showed a mild response. SPUD pressed the pace outside into and around the turn, chased two wide entering the stretch, came out some in the lane and weakened. SQUALOTORO off slow to begin, chased outside a rival, angled out at the three-sixteenths and proved no menace. FLY BUDDY FLY off slow at the start, traveled a bit off the rail, came out into the stretch and lacked a rally. EL CHAPIN attended the pace from the outside, went three deep into the turn, outpaced around the bend and came three to four wide into the stretch and faded. RAWHIDE RAWLINS chased three deep early then outside a rival on the turn, came four wide into the lane and had little left for the drive. HUMBOLDT off slow leaving the gate, dropped back and was always outrun. HAND TIMED.

WILSHIRE DUDE between foes early then stalked off the rail, went three wide into the far turn, came out of the bend in the four path, range up three deep upper stretch, took over at the eighth pole inched away under urging. EL HUERFANO forwardly placed outside the pacesetter, closed in and headed the leader at the three-eighths, dueled around the turn and into the stretch, took a short lead in upper stretch, outkicked by the winner and held the place. KYLEMORE raced a bit off the rail, asked right-handed at the quarter pole, angled in at the three-sixteenths, finished well along the inside and missed the place. TREASURE HUNTER set the pace inside, responded when challenged at the three-eighths and dueled with EL HUERFANO into the drive, could not keep pace in the final furlong, came out near the sixteenth marker and weakened. INCREDIBLE LUCK floated out on the first turn, chased off the rail to the stretch and never made an impact. IMAGINEIAMFASTEST pulled early then drifted out on the first turn, settled off the pace, two to three wide around the far turn and never threatened.
