Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome to our horse racing newsletter as we congratulate Joe Talamo on his 2,000th win.
We sort of previewed it for you in Thursday’s newsletter, but the California Horse Racing Board, after 87 minutes, ended up approving its version of the Woodbine experiment. In the end the board voted that a horse can not be struck more than six times in a race or twice in succession without giving the horse a chance to respond.
In addition, the jockeys must use the riding crop in the underhand position and it can not be raised above the shoulder. Riders who are found to be guilty will be faced with a fine up to $1,000 and at least a three-day suspension.
Now, this doesn’t mean you can go to the bank with this. It must now go through some legislative oversight stages and then a 45-day public comment period. And only then will it come back to the board. I’m guessing mid-way to the end of the marathon Santa Anita season.
Of course, this is all being done in the name of safety. Rick Arthur, equine medical director for the CHRB, brought up some interesting stats. He said that since July 1 until Nov. 30 that 58 horses have died. It includes not only racing and training but barn accidents and horses just getting sick from non-exercise induced reasons. Last year in the same period there were 67.
It’s not exactly a number to start jumping up and down about but it is an interesting year-over-year comparison. Also consider there have been fewer racing opportunities. The reason he used July as the start point is because the CHRB runs on a fiscal year, not a calendar one.
Rick Baedeker, the executive director, said in his report that for the calendar year, the average daily handle at all California tracks was down 7.6%. The reason he cited daily average is because there were 26 fewer racing cards this year. Let’s also realize that the Breeders’ Cup was at Santa Anita, so without those monster numbers the decline would be even more severe.
Baedeker also said, as predicted, that the results of the investigation into the Santa Anita fatalities will not be ready in December and the new target date is Jan. 15.
Los Alamitos daytime review
The big news on Thursday wasn’t a horse winning but a jockey. The popular Joe Talamo won his 2,000th race. He was aboard favorite Rizzi’s Honor in the fifth race. It wasn’t close as the horse won by four lengths.
“She was such a neat mare, she always tries hard,” Talamo told Bob Mieszerski of Los Alamitos. “I felt pretty confident down the lane she was going to win.”
OK, Joe, with all due respect. We don’t care about the horse, we care about your win.
“Besides [trainer Mark Glatt], there are so many owners and trainers to thank that gave me the opportunities that led to this milestone,” Talamo said. “I’m so grateful.
“[Jockey agent] Scotty [McClellan] and I have been together for about 13 years so it was pretty special to have him here [Thursday]. It’s hard to believe I’ve been riding this long.”
Talamo, 30, is taking his tack and moving to Oaklawn and the Midwest tracks in January.
Since I’ve been covering this beat, Joe has always been so accommodating and always willing to take my call, like most in this business. Everyone here will miss him. Glad he got his milestone in Southern California.
Los Alamitos preview
It’s the usual weekday card at Los Alamitos, eight races starting at 1 p.m. There are actually three one-mile races so we get some relief from Thursday races of mostly 5 ½ furlong contests. The high purse is the fifth race, a 5 ½ furlong maiden special for Cal-bred 2-year-old fillies. The favorite, at 5-2, is Shenandoah Star for trainer Steve Miyadi and jockey Assael Espinoza. She finished sixth in her only race at Del Mar.
Second favorite is Too Much Smoke at 3-1 for Peter Miller and Ruben Fuentes. This is her first race. Both horses are homebreds. Post time is around 3 p.m.
Here are the field sizes in order: 6, 6, 5, 6, 6, 6, 8, 10 (1 also eligible).
Ciaran Thornton’s Lrc pick of the day
RACE SEVEN: No. 2 Cunning Munnings (6-1)
Cunning Munnings won at this distance here in September for trainer Mark Glatt. Go fast from the gate jockey Edwin Maldonado takes the reigns and he is one-for-one hitting on a 70-1 longshot for this trainer already. The strategy is going to be simple in this race - bust the gate and go gate-to-wire. 6-1 is great value for today’s card.
Thursday’s result: Leedslimit went off at 22-1 and into the turn took the lead and looked a winner. If the race was four furlongs we win. Alas the horse faded to last.

Ed Burgart’s LA pick of the day
FIRST RACE: No. 3 Happier Together (5-2)
She is on the upswing while only making third start since March. In last runnerup try, she chased a wire-to-wire winner who was dropping down from the $5,000 ranks. Filly faces no class droppers while returning at the same level and retains leading distance rider Edgar Payeras.
