Horse racing newsletter: Big turf day at Del Mar
Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter, as we learn more about the mystery of the jockey who hit a horse in the head.
The mystery is solved. If you’ve been paying attention, I’ve recently focused on a stewards’ ruling in which jockey Yuttakarn Chopthongland was fined $300 for disorderly conduct for striking a horse in the head with his hand on Nov. 1 at Santa Anita. The stewards’ minutes on this incident were as complete as my knowledge of neurosurgery. So, I filed a public records request for as much info as possible.
I still haven’t gotten a response, partially because of the Thanksgiving holiday, which all horsemen, this newsletter scribe, and a lot of our readers worked. But Scott Chaney, executive director of the California Horse Racing Board, no doubt sick of my insinuations that CHRB lawyers’ first instinct is to exclude rather than include public record requests, dispatched Mike Marten on the case early last week to go even deeper than public records would reveal. Sincerely, thank you, Scott.
Mike is the indefatigable public information officer of the CHRB. So, he went straight to the stewards to find out what happened. (To those in the horse racing business, a call from Mike is much like a call from the principal’s office; it rarely is to tell you about winning the lottery.)
He was told that Chopthongland was riding an unidentified horse during morning exercise when the horse became unruly and potentially dangerous to others on the track. Because use of a riding crop during training is prohibited, the jockey hit the horse with his open hand to get the horse’s attention. It was viewed a safety measure.
The violation occurred when there was no racing at Santa Anita, only training. So, there were no stewards in Arcadia to watch over things. So, it was decided the best way to handle this was to have Santa Anita’s security to issue a citation after the infraction was reported by an outrider.
Great sleuthing job by Mike, which would have been much easier if the stewards had been more expansive in their minutes. (Note to stewards: If the infraction involves a person hitting a horse in the head, maybe more detail is the way to go.) Thank you, Mike.
OK, I still have a question. If the jockey had a crop, would he have hit the horse in the head with the crop for safety reasons? If not, why did he choose to hit the horse in the head without a crop? I don’t ride, so I don’t know, but I’m hard pressed to come up with any reason to hit a horse (or dog, cat, person, etc.) in the head. Just sayin’.
Regular stewards’ rulings return tomorrow.

Del Mar review
Three great stakes races on Saturday. Let’s get right to them.
Grade 3 $100,000 Jimmy Durante Stakes. This one-mile turf race for 2-year-old fillies is run over, you guessed it, the Jimmy Durante Turf Course. Fluffy Socks ran a great race from behind and rallied big in the stretch to win the race as the favorite by half-a-length in the 10-horse race.
Fluffy Socks paid $5.40, $3.40 and $2.60. Javanica was second and Quattroelle finished third.
Jose Hernandez (assistant to winning trainer Chad Brown): “I don’t think that anything will happen [with the inquiry]. I don’t see anything that would make them change it. I really thought this filly was going to win. She’s a really nice one. ”
Irad Ortiz Jr. (winning jockey): “No special instructions for me. He (trainer Chad Brown) just said ‘Ride her like you did before.’ She felt like a winner all the way around. We had some traffic on the [far] turn, but I got through and got her to where I wanted to be. She’s a nice filly. Big kick.”
Grade 2 $200,000 Seabiscuit Handicap: Count Again came from next to last with yet another rousing stretch run to win the 1 1/16-mile turf race by three-quarters of a length. Count Again, who had been running in Canada, was making his first California start for new trainer Phil D’Amato.
Count Again paid $18.80, $8.40 and $5.80. Flavius was second and Next Shares finished third.
Phil D’Amato (winning trainer): “[Previous trainer] Gail Cox delivered this horse to me in excellent condition and I was really glad to have him. She got him going really good and his confidence up as well and I just kind of trained on from that. I’m just fortunate to have him. [Jockey] Juan [Hernandez] followed our plan. I just told him to save all the ground and come with one run. If the race sets up for us, great, if not we’ll stretch him out next time. He followed those instructions to a ‘T’ and he came with a monstrous run. ”
Juan Hernandez (winning jockey): “He’d been running longer races (10 and 12 furlongs) and when he broke a little slow [Saturday] I didn’t rush him. We were in a good spot on the backside and I could feel I had plenty of horse. When we hit the three-eighths [pole] I wheeled him outside and we started to pick them up. He ran hard through the stretch and we got it done.”
Grade 1 $300,000 Hollywood Derby: Domestic Spending came from far back, came four-wide in the stretch and beat a talented field by a head in a blanket finish in the big race on Saturday’s card.
Domestic Spending paid $10.40, $5.00 and $3.20. Smooth Like Strait was second and Gufo finished third. It was the second Brown-Ortiz win on the day and third in two days. Brown has three horses in Sunday’s Matriarch.
Jose Hernandez (assistant to winning trainer Chad Brown): “Three down, one more to go. I talked to Chad coming over to the paddock and he just said stay with the plan. He broke a little slow but he was in good position and at about the half-mile point he started picking it up and by then I knew he was going to be there at the end. He’s a really good horse. ”
Irad Ortiz Jr. (winning jockey): “I thought I was going to be closer with him but he came out of there a little slow and we were in the back. I worked my way up on the backside and he was running perfect. When I asked him for his run at the three-eighths [pole], he was ready. He really put in a nice kick. He’s been a little green in his earlier races but he’s getting better all the time.”
Del Mar preview
It’s closing day at Del Mar with a 10-race card starting at noon; that’s a half-hour earlier than normal. My main takeaway is Del Mar kicked you-know-what on field sizes this meet. There were some lean days early but Tom Robbins and David Jerkens showed why they are the best racing office in the state. Now, if it’s me, wouldn’t you want to make them in charge of all the state racing offices (and by all, I mean the main thoroughbred tracks)? Visualize those two guys shaking their heads no in as emphatic a nature as possible while reading this. (By the way, we don’t really presume they read this newsletter.)
OK, on to Sunday, where there are two stakes and five turf races. The first stakes is the Grade 3 $100,000 Cecil B. DeMille Stakes for 2-year-olds going a mile on the turf. The favorite, at 7-2, is Royal Prince for trainer Brad Cox and jockey Joel Rosario. He’s coming off a 1 ¼ maiden win in his second lifetime race. That’s it, all he’s got so far in his career. The second favorite is Wootten Asset, at 9-2, for Graham Motion and Manny Franco. He has won two of six, both those victories in France. He hasn’t won in his tow U.S. starts at Pimlico and Belmont. Post is around 2:58 p.m.
The big race of the day is the Grade 1 $300,000 Matriarch Stakes for fillies and mares going a mile on the turf. This one looks very challenging to handicap as the favorite, Viadera, is at 7-2 and there are three horses at 4-1 as second choices. Viadera runs for Chad Brown and Rosario will ride. She has won her only two U.S. starts, a stakes at Saratoga and a Grade 3 at Belmont.
The three second choices are Blowout (Brown, Flavien Prat), Juliet Foxtrot (Cox, Mike Smith) and Tamahere (Brown, Irad Ortiz Jr.). Post is around 3:56 p.m.
Here are the field sizes, in order: 12 (2 also eligible), 8, 12 (1 ae), 7, 12 (1 ae), 9, 11, 11, 9, 11.
Bob Ike’s DM pick of the day
THIRD RACE: No. 11 Got Curly (7-2)
Lukewarm favorite in this 2-year-old maiden race going one mile on turf comes off a very good second when stretching out and should be tough to deny as blinkers are added here. Caught three-wide early from outside post, settled mid-pack, fired through the lane but had to settle for second behind perfect-trip winner. Will again need to overcome an outside post but should be graduation day this time.
Saturday’s result: Abusive Gary (25-1), dead on the board, pressed leader early, then threw in the towel at 1/4-pole. Badly overmatched, as was this pick.

Ciaran Thornton’s SA pick(s) of the day
THIIRD RACE: No. 12 Airman (8-1)
Airman gets the first time Umberto Rispoli betting angle for Sunday’s race. This is the second start for this horse on turf after what can only be described as a bad debut ride. Stuck in Tijuana for most of the race, Airman made a late rally and galloped out past the winner after the finish line. Trainer John Sherrifs wins 40% second time grass and 29% second time routing. This small stable excels in races like Sunday’s. Airman has as much speed as the top choices and a nice 8-1 value. Thank you for reading my value plays here during the Fall Meet.
Saturday’s result: U.S. Danger was a scratch in the first race.

Chris Wade’s LA pick of the day
SEVENTH RACE: No. 5 Made Over (7-2)
He is an improving runner who has moved forward with each subsequent start while earning a competitive number for this Grade 2 level in three straight efforts. He had a sluggish start in his last effort 30 nights ago, but quickly made the lead and held sway while racing on his on to post a quality charting. He’s facing a strong runner in Grade 1 Los Alamitos Super Derby runner-up Mental Error, but with another step forward it’s not hard to think that he could deliver a win at a medium price. He’s a runner on the rise.
