Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we wrap up a full day of Cal Cup races at Santa Anita.

The Eclipse Award nominees were released on Saturday and what it proved is how dominant Bob Baffert is not just in Southern California, but nationwide. There were eight nominations for SoCal horses and all eight, over five horses, were trained by Baffert.

As it should be, Baffert was also nominated for trainer of the year. As for our votes, 76.5% of our choices made the final three. Plenty of time for analysis. If you need a little more context, just click here. Or, we can just give you the results.

Santa Anita review

All 10 races on Saturday were for Cal-breds and five of them were stakes. As the expressions goes, if you are a Cal-bred, don’t get no better than that. Let’s get to the stakes results.

$150,000 Sunshine Millions Filly and Mare Turf Sprint: This six-furlong race wasn’t much of a race as Leggs Galore led mostly from gate-to-wire to win by 3 ½ lengths. She went off as the second favorite. It was her fourth straight win and first stakes.

Leggs Galore paid $7.60, $4.60 and $2.80. Nardini was second and Warren’s Showtime, the favorite, was third.

Phil D’Amato (winning trainer): “She runs very well fresh and she’d been training as good as she can possibly train, so I was expecting a big performance but that was pretty impressive [Saturday]. I think being able to steadily develop her and the turf I think has moved her up here. She trains as good in the morning on the dirt as she runs on the turf in the afternoon, so you never know. [Owner/breeder] Jack Sims has been really good with that and I think that helped with the success today.”

Ricardo Gonzalez (winning jockey): “I knew it was going to be hard for them to beat her. She was doing it so easily, and running so relaxed. She had a lot left in the tank. I let her break and cruise easily. The trip went exactly how it was planned, and it couldn’t have gone any better. She loved it.”

$200,000 Leigh Ann Howard California Cup Oaks: This one-mile turf race for 3-year-old fillies was renamed for longtime owner-breeder Leigh Ann Howard, who died on Sept. 3 at 79. Closing Remarks ran a smart race off the pace and came three-wide into the stretch and held on to win by a length.

Closing Remarks paid $7.80, $4.40 and $3.60. Warren’s Candy Girl was second and Super Game finished third.

Carla Gaines (winning trainer): “We had quite a bit of confidence, just hoping she would get a cleaner trip this time, and that worked out well. This is one of the best cards on Cal Cup Day we’ve seen in a long, long time. We keep expressing to the management and the racing office how important the Cal-breds are here and this is a great indication.”

Umberto Rispoli (winning jockey): “It was nice to have a clean trip [Saturday]. My trip was fantastic.… The speed was on, and she was happy where she was. I was traveling and waiting for the stretch because I felt that they went pretty fast in the front. I knew she was ready, and who the target was this race. Carla does an amazing job, and fortunately we didn’t get stopped today.”

$200,000 California Cup Derby: Obviously, this is somewhat the male version of the Cal Cup Oaks race except 1 1/16 miles and on the dirt. Big Fish was the surprise winner given his last five races were on the turf. He ran mid-pack on the backstretch and rallied wide in the stretch to win by 1 ½ lengths.

Big Fish paid $10.00, $5.80 and $3.60. None Above the Law was second and Good With People, the favorite, finished third.

David Hofmans (winning trainer): “I thought he preferred the turf, but since he was a Cal-bred we thought we’d take advantage of that. He breezed well over [the dirt], the other day with Juan [Hernandez] and seemed to get over it well. He’s just maturing. This horse is just now coming into himself. I think we have a better future going forward. I dream all the time, it’s the only reason I get up in the morning, we’ll see what happens, how he comes out of it and go from there.”

Juan Hernandez (winning jockey): “He broke a little slow, and he was pulling a little bit at the start. On the backside the pace was a little faster and he relaxed much better. Around the turn I had a lot of horses to go, but I didn’t have any room to come through. I had to wait a little bit longer around the turn, and when a little space opened, I asked him and he came through.”

$200,000 Unusual Heat Turf Classic: This was a 1 1/8-mile turf race for older horses and in this case the winner was a 6-year gelding named North County Guy. The race started with 70-1 shot Cono acting like it was a five-furlong race — he finished last — with North County Guy staying mid-pack. He started his move on the far turn and eventually took the lead and held on by a neck.

North County Guy paid $10.40, $6.40 and $4.00. Heck Yeah was second and Acclimate, the favorite, finished third.

Richard Baltas (winning trainer): “He was training really good and obviously we had to put the money up to make him eligible. He’s been running against open but we saw the $200,000 mile and an eighth, which is his distance, so we did it. He’s at San Luis Rey, he has the outside den and has a goat. If he doesn’t have the goat and he’s not outside he runs the stall so it’s kind of funny, he comes up here in the van with the goat. We just try to keep him happy.”

Mario Gutierrez (winning jockey): “It was a perfect trip. When that other horse took off, I settled in a very nice position, and he settled really well. I never really had to push him, I was letting him run free and comfortable. I had a lot of horses to beat so I didn’t want to wait too long. When it was time to go, I let him go a bit wide, and when I asked him, he responded really well.”

$150,000 California Cup Sprint: This six-furlong race was named for longtime owner-breeder Don Valpredo but belonged to Brickyard Ride who led gate-to-wire and won by 3 ¼ lengths. It was the first stakes win for jockey Alexis Centeno.

Brickyard Ride paid $11.80, $6.60 and $5.00. Tigre Di Slugo, the favorite, was second and Fashionably Fast was third.

Craig Lewis (winning trainer): “I felt pretty good about it because I thought we had them double teamed. We knew we were going to try to speed away with Brickyard because he’s got wicked speed. We’ve learned now he just watches heads, so we don’t try to take him back, we just let him roll. He can rock ‘n’ roll as you saw. Probably made a little mistake, I had Juan [Hernandez] take Club Aspen too far back, because I knew they were gonna go fast, but he ran on very nicely as well. We have hope for him, they’re both terrific horses and they’re both by Clubhouse Ride, I couldn’t be happier to have them in my barn.”

Alexis Centeno (winning jockey): “First I want to thank God and Craig Lewis, who’s helped me a lot, and my agent. I’m happy. I believed in my horse and just went to the lead and didn’t look back, just go. [Brickyard Ride] is so special for me, I won two races in a row with him. I love this horse.”

Santa Anita preview

The big news about Sunday’s nine-race card starting at 12:30 p.m. is that after all 10 races on Saturday being for Cal-breds there are two more Cal-bred races today. I know I keep bringing it up, but Chris Merz has really energized the racing department. I’ve been told multiple times from multiple people about how he is on the backside every day trying to figure out what races to write for the horse population that lives there. With Golden Gate reopening, the task will be just a little bit more difficult as the population contracts very slightly.

As for the non-Cal-bred Sunday races, five are on the turf and the feature is the Grade 3 $100,000 Astra Stakes for fillies and mares going 1 ½ miles on the turf. No doubt, race caller Frank Mirahmadi will remind viewers that the horses will cross the finish line twice. The race starts a little more than halfway up the downhill course. Here’s predicting that sometime before the Kentucky Derby we’ll see a stakes race go down the hill at 6 ½ furlongs but don’t expect it to be a common occurrence, especially with the new chute working so well.

The favorite in the Astra, at 5-2, is Quick for trainer John Sadler and jockey Umberto Rispoli. She has won three-of-15 lifetime with five seconds. She has never won a stakes in the U.S. and as third last out in the Grade 3 Red Carpet at Del Mar.

Second favorite is Altea at 3-1 for Michael McCarthy and Abel Cedillo. She is two-for-24 lifetime with eight seconds. She was formerly trained by Chad Brown back East before moving to California. Last out she was seventh in the Grade 3 Robert J. Frankel at Santa Anita on Dec. 27.

Here are the field sizes, in order: 12, 8, 8, 8, 9, 7, 9, 6, 11 (1 also eligible).

Ciaran Thornton’s SA pick of the day

FIFTH RACE: No. 3 Here Comes Ralphie (15-1)

Here Comes Ralphie is nothing on paper after four starts. Sunday trainer Gary Stute finally moves this horse to turf for the first time, in what could be a key move as the dam had five turf winners from nine starters. First time Lasix also helps. This is a wide-open tough race that should pay us!

Saturday’s result: Afternoon Heat stunk up the house and was merely out for an exercise ride.

Chris Wade’s LA pick of the day

SIXTH RACE: No. 5 Delighted (7-2)

He has proven to be very consistent at level of competition and his past figures are very comparable for this affair. The gray runner also draws the outside post, which could help ensure a clear run to the wire. In his last effort, this runner broke a little head high and inward to lose almost a length of ground to a perfect tripped winner. After a less than stellar getaway, Delighted showed a decent amount of speed midway and finish down the lane to run into the runner-up position at the wire and putting up a solid number for tonight’s event. Should be close up early and in the photo late at an expected medium mutual.

POLICY tracked the pace off the inside, went three to four wide around the turn, rallied four wide in the drive and bested the runner-up. DESMOND DOSS broke in and brushed rival, angled to the outside and was sent to a forward position, went three wide into the lane, drew alongside the leader in upper stretch, led briefly past the eighth pole but was outkicked by the winner. I WILL NOT broke out and bumped rival, chased two then three wide around the turn and finished willingly to earn the show. SHADY EMPIRE set the pace between rivals, held a short lead to the furlong marker, lost command soon after the eighth pole and yielded to a minor award. EL DIABLO ROJO brushed leaving the gate, went two wide into the turn, angled out and came four to five wide into the stretch, chased within striking distance in the drive but needed to find more late. JETOVATOR pressed the leader from inside up the backstretch, chased that foe around the turn and into the drive and finished evenly along the fence. AGAMEMNON chased along the inside to the lane and never produced a bid. AFTERNOON HEAT traveled near the back of the pace, took the turn two wide, angled out in the stretch and never threatened. RINSE AND REPEAT saved ground into the lane and was never a factor. BRACE FOR IMPACT bumped leaving the gate, pressed the pace three deep, continued to apply pressure from outside around the turn, then weakened in the lane. ASARO raced off the pace, came three wide into the lane and proved no menace.

BURNIN TURF stumbled leaving the gate, angled to the inside early, moved out around the first turn and went outside the leader into the backstretch, chased foe to the far turn, bid outside near the three-eighths pole, cleared foe in upper stretch, then held late under a drive. MAMBA COOL tucked inside on the first turn, stayed inside then moved into the two path around the far turn, angled out in upper stretch, closed well and gained second while gaining on the winner. SECRET CLUB went two wide around the first turn then went between foes, steadied off heels past the five-eighths pole, went up between another pair of foes to close the gap on the leader, entered the stretch two wide, drifted in and bumped rival upper stretch, gained ground late but got edged for the place. TALLEMARK sped to the front and crossed over to the inside, met bid around the far turn, held a short lead into the drive, lugged in and brushed the rail past the three-sixteenths pole, then flattened to a minor award. CRANKIN stalked the pace from inside, saved ground to the stretch, bumped by rival in upper stretch and kept on through the late stages. FLY BUDDY FLY stalked off the inside then three deep, asked three wide around the far turn and weakened. BIG BILLY traveled three wide around the clubhouse turn then three deep into the backstretch, went three wide around the second bend and had little left for the drive.

TETON VALLEY dueled with outside rival into and around the turn, cleared foe at the top of the stretch, led to the eighth pole but proved no match for the winner. SWIFT AS I AM tracked between rivals, two wide exiting the turn, lacked room into the stretch, angled out and kept on to gain the show. SHIMMER ME TIMBERS stumbled leaving the gate then broke out and bumped rival, dueled for the lead from outside into and around the turn then gave way.
