Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we have only two weeks of racing left at Del Mar this meeting.

Time to get caught up on the stewards’ rulings.

--Jockey Edwin Maldonado was fined $200 for using the riding crop more than three times on his mount, Italiano, without giving the horse a chance to respond in the fourth race on July 28. Upon reviewing the video, Maldonado agreed he exceeded the three-strike rule. It was his second violation in the last 60 days. Italiano finished third.

--Jockey Kent Desormeaux was fined $200 for using the riding crop more than three times on his mount, Cool Runnings, without giving the horse a chance to respond in the seventh race on July 28. Desormeaux pleaded guilty over the phone and did not attend the hearing. It was his second violation in the last 60 days. Cool Runnings finished second.

--Jockey Drayden Van Dyke was fined $50 for failing to show up to review an incident on July 27 where his mount bore out shortly after the start of the race. Van Dyke said he forgot about the meeting, which is why he didn’t show up. Van Dyke did show the next day and was not issued a fine or penalty for the incident.

--Jockey Mario Gutierrez was suspended three days (Aug. 9, 10, 11) for interference in the fifth race on Aug. 1. According to the stewards’ minutes, Gutierrez angled his mount, Smiling Rose, out at the top of the stretch in the hope of getting a clear path for the stretch run. However, the horse continued to go out and made contact with another horse. Gutierrez explained that the horse went out further than he intended. Smiling Rose finished second. It was a majority decision as steward Kim Sawyer did not think the ride deserved a suspension.

--Jockey Norberto Arroyo Jr. was suspended 10 days (Aug, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23, 24) for causing interference in the seventh race on Aug. 2. It resulted in the horse, Square Deal, to be disqualified from first to third in the Graduation Stakes. The stewards determined Arroyo did not have sufficient clearance and interfered with Pas de Parique, ridden by Abel Cedillo. Arroyo said he thought he had enough clearance. It was Arroyo’s fourth riding infraction since June 21 and third at the Del Mar meeting. Steward Sawyer voted for an eight-day suspension. The stewards also said Arroyo can not ride in “designated” races, usually stakes, which jockeys normally can ride in while on suspension.

Who goofed, I’ve got to know?

It’s me. When I said that John Sadler and Hronis Racing was the first trainer-owner combination to win the Pacific Classic in back-to-back years, the words I left out were “with different horses.” It had been done previously with the same horse but on Saturday Higher Power joined Accelerate as the first time it was done with different horses.

Great source for racing

On occasion you’ve seen comments from Robert Kieckhefer, both a friend and nationally accomplished racing writer. He does two pieces a week for UPI and is known as an expert on international racing. One piece, late in the week, previews the weekend races both in the U.S. and across the various ponds, and then on late Sunday or early Monday he reviews all the races.

Now, I don’t want you to abandon me, but his national look is way better than I can do in this newsletter, in which we cater to Southern California racing fans. This past week, his tech geniuses figured out a way to collect all the horse coverage in one spot. It’s still a work in progress (as if we haven’t had tech issues lately ourselves), and you have to scroll through a lot of picture roadblocks (that’s an actual web/digital term) to get to the headlines, which link to the story.

Here’s where you find it. www.upi.com/topic/horse-racing

Not every story is his, but most of them are. Did I mention it’s free? I didn’t? OK, it’s free. Take a look.

Del Mar review

Prince Earl, running for the first time in almost nine months, used a late charge in deep stretch to beat a competitive group of older horses in the Grade 2 $200,000 Del Mar Mile on the turf.

He was sixth entering the stretch and then found some room between horses to win by three-quarters of a length. He paid $21.60, $11.00 and $7.60. Sharp Samurai was second and Grecian Fire finished third.

Here’s what the connections had to say:

Phil D’Amato (winning trainer): “I thought a lot of him as a 3-year-old. He had some unlucky trips in some pretty strong races his last two as a 3-year-old. We gave him plenty of time off, did a minor throat procedure on him and he’s come back with a vengeance as a 4-year-old. We decided to take a big shot here and got a great ride by Geovanni Franco.”

Franco (winning jockey): “Phil [D’Amato] said ‘He’s going to run big, just be patient.’ I had the good post (No. 1) to save ground on the grass and it worked out just that way. He was very responsive to me all the way around. When I asked him, he had a nice kick. It was a lovely ride.”
