Horse racing newsletter: First round of Santa Anita rulings

Santa Anita Park in 2013.
(Jae C. Hong / Associated Press)

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we remember legendary Dodger manager Tommy Lasorda.

The death of Dodger icon Tommy Lasorda on Thursday night has brought a rush of stories throughout the sports world. Most were about his reverence for Dodger blue, his motivational speeches and his nonstop promotion of the sport in general and the Dodgers in particular. And, of course, there were a lot of replays of the captured audio of what he thought about Dave Kingman’s performance and San Diego’s Kurt Bevacqua. (He couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat, Lasorda said with extra words.)

He wasn’t as closely tied to horse racing as some other athletes, but he got to the track every now and then. On Friday, Santa Anita placed a saddlecloth with the L.A. Dodgers insignia over the statue of Seabiscuit in the walking ring. After a moment of silence before the first race, Jay Cohen performed a special rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”

Rick Baedeker, a former race track executive who closed his career as executive director of the California Horse Racing Board, remembered this story.

“Lasorda bought the Baedeker [selection] card from me one night at the harness races at Hollywood Park,” Baedeker said. “He spontaneously told us the story of going to the track with two young players while he was managing at Albuquerque. He was losing every race but the two guys sitting in front of them were constantly winning.

“When they left their seats, Lasorda told the players, ‘Go watch them and get me twice whatever they get.’ The players came back with four roast beef sandwiches.”

Stewards’ rulings

The first round of stewards’ rulings from the Santa Anita meeting are in, and, as seems to be commonplace, are dominated by violations of the riding crop rules. Let’s get to them.

— Jockey Ricardo Santana Jr. was fined $500 for violating the riding crop rule while aboard Sasstserb in the first race on Dec. 26. Santana used the riding crop more than six times. Santana, who is not a regular rider at Santa Anita, was represented by valet Rafael Castaneda. Santana told Castaneda that he did not know the rule before the race. Darrel Haire, West Coast representative of the Jockey Guild, testified that he did tell Santana before the race of the California rules. It was Santana’s first offense in the past 60 days.

— Owner Richard Washingsky had his license suspended after failing to show for a hearing on Dec. 27. The complaint was over $17,178.75 in alleged unpaid training bills to Daniel Dunham. The suspension was to start on Jan. 7. Under terms of the suspension, Washingsky was to be denied access to all areas under jurisdiction of the CHRB.

— Trainer Peter Miller was fined $400 for a late medication declaration on Shashashakemeup. According to the stewards’ minutes, “Miller shipped the wrong horse to Santa Anita from San Luis Rey Downs, and when attempting to send the correct horse, it was determined that it had already been treated.” Shashashakemeup was scratched from the sixth race on Dec. 31.

— Hot walker Lew Winney was fined $100 for failing to wear his face covering properly on Dec. 31. Winney admitted that he had the mask below his nose.

— Jockey Tiago Pereira was fined $500 for violating the riding crop rule while aboard Never Be Enough in the Robert J. Frankel Stakes on Dec. 27. Upon reviewing the race, Pereira agreed he used the crop seven times, one more than allowable, and took responsibility. Never Be Enough finished second by three-quarters of a length. It was his first violation in the past 60 days.

— Owner Jeff Metcalfe was restored in good standing after paying a debt of $2,644 to trainer Manuel Badilla. The original suspension was issued by the Golden Gate stewards on Oct. 1.

— Jockey Drayden Van Dyke was fined $1,000 for violating the riding crop rule while aboard Tizamagician in the sixth race Jan. 2. Van Dyke agreed that he used the riding crop eight times, two more than allowed. Tizamagician won the allowance race by a half-length. It was Van Dyke’s third offense in the last 60 days.

— Jockey Heriberto Figueroa was fined $500 for violating the riding crop rule while aboard Bob and Jackie in the seventh race on Jan. 2. Figueroa agreed he used the crop seven times, one more than allowable. Bob and Jackie finished second by 2 ¼ lengths. It was his first offense in the last 60 days.

— Exercise rider Isaiah Ortiz was fined $500 unprofessional behavior during morning training on Nov. 10 at Santa Anita. The complaint said Ortiz kicked and attempted to strike his pony with his reins. Ortiz said he overreacted when he became frustrated by his pony acting up.

— Owner Tom Mansor was suspended after failing to keep up with a payment plan he had agreed to on Aug. 11, 2020 at Del Mar. Mansor agreed to pay veterinarian Melinda Blue $7,722 at a rate of $750 a month for unpaid veterinarian services. The suspension was to start on Jan. 10. During the time of the suspension, Mansor is barred from all racetrack premises.

Santa Anita review

Sunday’s feature was the $75,000 Kalookan Queen Stakes for fillies and mares going 6 ½ furlongs. Acting Out went out to a short lead on the backstretch but quickly got swallowed up on the far turn and by the top of the stretch it was Qahira’s to lose. The winning margin was a length.

Qahira paid $5.00, $3.00 and $2.40. Amuse was second, followed by Biddy Duke, Mo See Cal, Dynasty of Her Own and Acting Out.

Joel Rosario (winning jockey): “It looked like she came out of there fine and it looked like those couple of horses (Acting Out and Mo See Cal) wanted to go ahead and go on with the speed, so I just sat right behind them a little bit and let her be happy with where she was. She ran really well.”

Jim Barnes (assistant to winning trainer Bob Baffert): “It went according to plan. Bob said to tell Joel [Rosario] to just come out of there and try to get a good position. The way it worked out, those two fillies (Acting Out and Mo See Cal) went and we were able to get outside of them. At the five sixteenths, Joel jumped on ‘em and she was pretty impressive. Joel gave her a perfect ride.”

GOLDEN settled off the pace, gained ground through the far turn, shifted in and bumped IVY LEAGUE mid-stretch and drew clear late. IVY LEAGUE angled in early, chased a bit off the rail, angled out on the second turn and bid three deep, led into the stretch, got bumped by GOLDEN mid-stretch and got outkicked while proving second best. FOCACCINA tracked near the rail or two wide to the stretch and held the show. LISETTE off a bit slow to begin, bothered by rival into the first turn then angled in around the bend, raced along the inside into the far turn then moved out into the two path and improved position. QUICK AND DIRTY closest to the pacesetter through the early stages, bid outside on the second turn, led past the quarter pole, overtaken into the stretch and weakened. BASIL FLAVOR bothered into the first turn then angled to the rail, traveled two wide to the stretch and could not rally. CHROME OF OUR OWN raced along the inside, steadied at the three-eighths, remained inside then moved out a bit in the stretch and was never a factor. MALIBU HANNAH sped to the front and crossed over to the inside, showed the way up the backstretch, challenged and relinquished the lead past the quarter pole and gave way.

MISS FIA stalked along the inside, steadied at the half-mile pole, angled out on the turn, exited the bend four wide and traveled five wide in upper stretch, closed outside the winner but lacked the needed final punch. GIDGETTA stumbled at the start, up close early between the top pair then dropped back to stalked between rivals, took the turn two wide and finished willingly for the show honors. ADORABLY SWEET tracked outside a rival then three deep on the backstretch, moved up alongside the top pair around the turn, could not keep pace into the stretch and flattened out.

NICE ICE steadied behind the leader around the first turn, went up to take control at the nine-sixteenths, cleared rival on the backstretch, inched away on the turn, drew off in upper stretch under a drive and held safely under hand in the late stages. KITTYHAWK LASS unhurried early and tucked inside, angled into the two path around the far turn, steered out in upper stretch and closed well. ELLIE ARROWAY stalked outside a rival, three deep at the quarter pole, lacked the needed response in the drive but bested the rest. SCHERZO (GB) steadied into the first turn and raced three wide around that bend, chased four wide into the far turn, angled down to the two path, summoned a mild rally and earned a minor award. TOO MUCH HEAVEN stumbled at the start, stalked the outside a rival then two wide into the lane and weakened. COLOMBIAN GOLD raced along the inside while in range, angled two wide around the far turn and could not rally in the drive. LAKERBALL angled in soon after the start, traveled along the inside to the stretch, came out in the lane and was never a factor. HURLEY traveled mid-pack early while two wide, moved a bit further out on the backstretch, went three wide around the far turn and had little left. JEWEL THIEF cleared quickly, angled to the inside, led into the backstretch, lost command at the nine-sixteenths, chased the leader from inside into and around the far turn and tired.

FIVE PICS PLEASE had speed along the inside, set the pace with company to the outside, cleared rival past the half-mile pole, drew away into the stretch and held safely. NIMBOSTRATUS (FR) tracked off the inside, angled into the two path, angled out at the top of the stretch, rallied and earned the place honors. PLUM SEXY traveled outside a rival then between foes, angled in nearing the turn, saved ground inside to the stretch, angled out with a sixteenth to go and finished well for the show. MISS COSTA RICA stalked along the inside, moved into second approaching the eighth pole but lacked the needed late punch in the final sixteenth settled for a minor share. MISS DRACARYS dropped back early, steadied at the seven-sixteenths pole, entered the turn two wide, angled out and came four wide into the stretch, angled out further at the eighth pole and was closing late. LITTLE VICKY chased four deep to the turn, remained four wide into the stretch and weakened. RISEN LADY hit the inside gate and had the rider lose the left iron momentarily, chased between foes then two wide around the turn and could not rally. EMPIRE HOUSE away quickly and crossed over to pressed the leader, chased that rival past the half-mile marker, took the turn two to three wide and weakened. INNER BEAUTY (IRE) chased three deep, started to weaken around the turn and faded. MAGICAL THOUGHT stumbled at the start, angled to the inside, steadied at the three-eighths pole, kept inside to the lane and had little left for the stretch run. SOBER stumbled at the start, tracked four then three wide around the turn and tired.
