Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we’re back in business with more stewards’ rulings.
Tom Robbins, exec VP for racing at Del Mar, angling for an honorary doctorate in meteorology, has canceled racing on Thanksgiving (that’s Thursday in case you forgot) because of the threat of bad weather. He canceled this past Thursday, and, I’ve got to say, I did use my umbrella from the car to California Horse Racing Board meeting at the Del Mar Hilton that day. And, I used my wipers driving down Wednesday night.
“The weatherman is making it tough, but safety always comes first,” Robbins said. “We are appreciative of the cooperation from our horsemen. We’re planning on putting on a good show Friday and following that with tremendous stakes-filled cards on both Saturday and Sunday. We’ve got horses and horsemen coming into town from back east for our big races and we want them to know that their races will be presented as planned under safe and proper conditions.”
The Weather Channel lists the probability of rain on Wednesday and Thursday at 90%.
David Jerkens, the racing secretary, told horsemen that the $100,000 Red Carpet Handicap will be moved from Thursday to Saturday and redrawn, and the $200,000 Hollywood Turf Cup will be moved from Friday to Sunday. All of Friday’s turf races have been moved to the dirt. There will be seven graded turf stakes on the weekend.
Safety is certainly the driving force at Del Mar after suffering three deaths as the result of racing on opening weekend. This follows no racing deaths during the seven-week signature summer meeting.
Weather was thought to be a contributing factor for the spike of deaths at Santa Anita early in the year.
The cancellation also takes some of the strain off racing office, which is dealing with a smaller than usual horse population.
Del Mar will still have its traditional Thanksgiving meal, which will be available from 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The track will open at 9 a.m. on Thursday.
The Del Mar stewards and CHRB have finally published the stewards’ minutes for the opening week. So, let’s dig in and be glad we’re not Ruben Fuentes.
--Jockey Ruben Fuentes has dropped his appeal over rulings on Aug. 10 and Aug. 21. Both were for careless riding. He served the first suspension on Nov. 16, 17 and 21. The second suspension was for Nov. 22, 23, 24, 28 and 29. (The suspension on the 28th will be modified because of no racing.)
--Jockey Fuentes was also suspended three more days (Dec. 1, 6 and 7) after he failed to keep his mount, Mayan Warrior, on a straight course in the stretch in the seventh race on Nov. 9. He was disqualified from third to sixth in the race. Steward Grant Baker wanted a five-day day suspension because he thought the incident was dangerous. Fuentes said it happened because he was trying to get the horse to change leads.
--Jockey Donnie Meche was suspended three days (Nov. 15, 16 and 17) for violations of the riding crop rules. In the second race at Santa Anita on Nov. 3 he hit Willowglade on the head and also used his riding crop when the horse was clearly out of the race. Willowglade finished sixth in a six-horse race.
--Jockey David Cohen was fined $500 for using the riding crop more than three times without allowing the horse to respond. He was riding Coach Rocks in the Goldikova Stakes at Santa Anita on Nov. 3. The horse finished sixth in a six-horse race. Steward Kim Sawyer wanted an increased fine.
--Jockey William Antongeorgi was suspended three days (Nov. 16, 17 and 21) for interference for his ride on Ernie Banks in the third race at Del Mar on Nov. 8. The stewards believed that Antongeorgi crossed over without sufficient clearance entering the first turn causing Impression, the eventual winner, to steady. Ernie Banks finished second in the race.
--Jockey Heriberto Figueroa was fined $300 for striking Bob and Jackie five times in succession in the eighth race on Nov. 9. Bob and Jackie won the race by a nose. Figueroa admitted he overused the crop.
--Jockey Drayden Van Dyke was fined $300 for striking Dueling seven times in succession in the eighth race on Nov. 9. Dueling finished fourth in the five-horse race. Van Dyke admitted to overusing the crop.
Corey Nakatani retires
Jockey Corey Nakatani, who injured his back after a fall in a race in Aug. 2018, has officially announced his retirement from racing. He won 3,909 races and more than $234 million in purses.
“The time has come to officially announce my retirement from the sport of horse racing,” Nakatani said in a news release. “Although I never imagined this is how my career would end, I am very proud of my accomplishments and know that I competed at the very highest of levels, which gives me a sense of satisfaction. This game gave a young kid from Covina a purpose in life and I will forever be grateful for the opportunities it has given me. Without these amazing horses, I never would have considered my family and myself so blessed.”
Nakatani is 49.
Del Mar review
The $100,000 Cary Grant Stakes, for Cal-breds going seven furlongs, turned out just the way the morning line predicted the bettors would see it. Fashionably Fast stayed close for most of the race and took the lead coming off the far turn and won by half-a-length over Oliver.
Rick’s Dream was a trainer’s scratch leaving a field of five. It was the fourth straight win for Fashionably Fast, a 4-year-old gelding. He paid $4.20, $2.40 and $2.10. Oliver, the second favorite on the morning line but third in betting, was second followed by Ultimate Bango, Grinning Tiger and Shades of Victory.
Here’s what the winning connections had to say.
Dean Pederson (winning trainer): “Him maturing quite a bit has played a big roll [in his four straight wins], and obviously taking the blinkers off has helped. It helps him feel a little more relaxed in his running style. He’s a handy horse you can place where you want to and he has been a godsend to us. He has been a remarkable horse over a short period of time for us.”
Tiago Pereira (winning jockey): “I thought I’d be laying about third. I thought the 5 (Oliver) would go. But we came out of there really well and he’s plenty fast and he went to the front. Then he was running so easy I wasn’t going to take him back. I just let him go. I know this horse (ridden him in nine of his last 10 starts) and I know how good he can be. Four in a row. That’s good.”

ASARO sped to the early lead, set a pressured pace inside, inched away leaving the second turn and held on gamely under left handed urging. JET SET RULER angled in and chased outside a rival then between horses on the backstretch and second turn, came out in the stretch and split rivals late for the place. JAMMING EDDY pulled between horses then stalked outside a rival on the backstretch and second turn, came three wide into the stretch and was edged late for second. CONO pulled and steadied early, angled in then tugged his way along just off the rail on the backstretch, came out leaving the second turn and four wide into the stretch and was edged for the show four wide on the line. CLAIM OF PASSION had speed between horses then pressed the pace outside the winner, stalked leaving the second turn and into the stretch, drifted in late and was outfinished for a minor award. PERFECT WAGER angled in and saved ground chasing the pace, split rivals in deep stretch and could not quite summon the needed late kick. COAST OF ROAN broke out a bit, stalked three deep to the stretch and lacked the necessary late response. PUSH THROUGH pulled along the inside and was in a bit tight into the first turn, saved ground stalking the pace and weakened some in the stretch.
