Horse racing newsletter: Monday racing at Santa Anita

Santa Anita starting gate
(Kent Nishimura / Los Angeles Times)

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome to our horse racing newsletter as we see the impact of the new whip rules through the eyes of the stewards.

As promised last week, we thought we would look at the effect of the new whip rule put in place by the California Horse Racing Board. In short, it called for no more than six strikes and no more than two in a row. All have to come from an underhand position.

The stewards were encouraged to allow a grace period for slight violations and that’s exactly what it appears they did. I normally don’t report warnings, but for a few weeks it seems like it would be an instructive way to see how the new rules are being implemented. So, let’s get to them.

--Jockey Mario Gutierrez was issued a warning for using his crop seven times while aboard Dylans Wild Cat in the fourth race on Oct. 2. Dylans Wild Cat won by half-a-length. It was a majority decision as steward Luis Jauregui voted for a $100 fine.

--Apprentice jockey Alexis Centeno was issued a waring for using his crop seven times while aboard Devils Dance in the seventh race on Oct. 2. Devils Dance finished second. Steward Luis Jauregui was a dissenting opinion on the ruling.

--Jockey Victor Espinoza was fined $100 for using his riding crop nine times while aboard Lady Noguez in the fifth race on Oct. 2. Lady Noguez finished second by a head. The horse won $7,600 by virtue of the second-place finish. The standard jockey payment would have been $760.

--Jockey Juan Hernandez was issued a warning for using his riding crop seven times while aboard Hot Pastrami during the seventh race on Oct. 3. Hot Pastrami finished seventh.

--Jockey Juan Hernandez was fined $100 for using his riding crop three times in succession without giving his mount, Big Barrel, a chance to respond. Big Barrel finished fourth, earning a purse of $1,760. The standard jockey payment would have been $176.

--Jockey Heriberto Figueroa was issued a warning for using his riding crop in the cocked position on the shoulder of Silver Summer in the sixth race on Oct. 3. It appeared as if the problem occurred when he was trying to transfer the crop from his right hand to the left. Silver Summer finished second.

--Jockey Heriberto Figueroa was fined $100 for using his riding crop nine times while aboard Bob and Jackie in the City of Hope Mile, the eighth race, on Oct. 3. Bob and Jackie finished third and earned $24,000. The standard jockey payment for that purse would have been $2,400.

--Apprentice jockey Alexis Centeno was suspended four days (Oct. 11, 12, 16 and 17) for his ride about Run Snappy in the seventh race on Oct. 3. The stewards believed that Run Snappy crossed over without sufficient clearance in the turn causing interference. Run Snappy won the race by 4 ¾ lengths. Centeno also received a careless riding suspension for a race on Aug. 7, so an extra day was added to what would normally be a three-day suspension.

Santa Anita review

Favorite Galilean had to work hard in the stretch but did get up at the end to win by a head in the $100,000 California Flag Handicap, a 5 ½ furlong turf race for Cal-breds. Galilean paid $5.00, $3.00 and $2.20. Ultimate Bango was second followed by Rookie Mistake, Baja Sur and Mikes Tiznow.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

John Sadler (winning trainer): “He’s a really good horse. This is the third stakes we’ve won with him and he’s won six overall now. He’s got so much class. We changed things up, running short, but we added blinkers and as you could see, he’s got a ton of natural speed. Long range, it’s exciting because these Uncle Mo’s are doing so well at stud and that’s very encouraging for him. We’re excited about the new turf chute here at Santa Anita and we’ll look at running him in a stake going six and half (furlongs) this winter. We’ll probably stick with the state-bred program, there’s just so much money there.”

Umberto Rispoli (winning jockey): “I was a little bit in trouble at the top of the stretch when Baja Sur came out but then opened the gap on the inside. Unfortunately, my horse didn’t want to switch leads and he was hanging in all the way. I was obligated to just ride it with him and to try to make him as straight as I can but he’s a huge horse. I got it because he was the better horse in the race.

“He’s the kind of horse that is versatile. I think he can do dirt and grass. John [Sadler] is smart he saw it wasn’t the toughest race and he took a chance to place him inside. He put the blinkers on which helps. He’s a tricky horse he couldn’t win it any more easily than he did [Sunday].”

In what may be the worst card of the short meeting on Monday, there are eight races beginning at 1 p.m. Five of the races have only five horses before scratches. There are four turf races.

The feature is the sixth, an allowance/optional claimer for horses going 5 ½ furlongs o the turf for a purse of $59,000. The favorite, at 9-5, is Grit ad Curiosity, for trainer Peter Miller and jockey Juan Hernandez. He is three-of-nine lifetime and is coming off a third in the Eddie D at Santa Anita. Prior, he had two wins at the allowance level and Oaklawn Park. Tilted Towers is the second choice at 5-2 for Phil D’Amato and Abel Cedillo. He has won half of his lifetime four races, including the last two, a maiden and allowance. Post is around 3:42 p.m.

Here are the field sizes, in order: 8, 5, 5, 8, 5, 5, 5, 9.

Frank Mirahmadi’s SA pick of the day

FIFTH RACE: No. 2 Little No Way (2-1)

After a pair of third-place finishes at Del Mar, Little No Way most recently put in a good effort in a turf marathon at Golden Gate Fields. While his best work has come on turf, this is a soft group and the other two who will vie for favoritism are dropping and making equipment changes.

Sunday’s result: Seiche never got to the lead and was virtually eased after six furlongs when completely overmatched.

Ciaran Thornton’s SA pick of the day

EIGHTH RACE: No. 2 Silent Musketeer (8-1)

Silent Musketeer rallied four-wide last out going longer to run third by a length. Trainer Samuel Nichols is 29% off the bench. This horse has as much last race speed, back speed and class as the top choices but we are getting 8-1. Also use Most Sandisfactory jumping multiple classes for trainer Doug O’Neill who also owns. Last month Luis Saez was enticed to ride. This could be claim bait however but the price is right.

Sunday’s result: See Through It tracked perfectly in third into the stretch and looked set up for a closing run but faded badly.

GALILEAN stalked outside the leader, went three wide around the turn then floated out path into the drive, drifted inward in the lane, closed in on the ULTIMATE BANGO and got up. ULTIMATE BANGO shifted in at the start, dropped back back angled to the inside, remained along the rail and gained command in upper stretch, led through the drive, battled with GALILEAN in deep stretch and was nailed at the wire. ROOKIE MISTAKE bumped both sides at the start, stalked outside a rival then two wide around the turn, chased along the inside in the drive, lacked room and steadied inside the eighth pole, angled out with a sixteenth to go and stayed on for the show. BAJA SUR stumbled and bumped with inside rival at the start, trailed along the inside, came off the rail in the lane and passed a tired rival. MIKES TIZNOW broke out and bumped rival in the beginning, sped to the front, set the pace in the two path into the turn then three wide into the lane, floated in by GALILEAN in the stretch and checked past the eighth pole and weakened after. FOLLOWING AN INQUIRY, THE STEWARDS RULED THAT ALTHOUGH GALILEAN DRIFTED IN AND CAUSED MIKES TIZNOW TO CHECK PAST THE EIGHTH POLE, IT DID COST HIM A CHANCE AT A BETTER PLACING AND THERE WOULD BE NO CHANGE.
