An Important Chapter Comes To A Close

From the Executive Corner

by DOUG BURGE proven-quality mares. It is extremely important that the industry does its best to retain this breeding stock. With the lucrative racing and incentive program offering over $30 million, such mares are immensely beneficial and vital to the continued production of top Cal-breds. Since the farm began in 1975, manager Russell Drake has been at the helm. For the past 15 years, I have annually visited nearly every farm in the state and I can tell you that there is not a more professional, hands-on and successful farm manager than Russell. I hope we can keep him active, as the industry will sure miss his presence. As I stated earlier, the entire Rive Edge operation will be very difficult to replace, but we do also have many other major breeders/owners who continue to invest in and support California. The CTBA will continue to do its best to represent those breeders/owners and farms, and provide the best programs to market their horses. On another note, as you can see on the cover of this edition of California Thoroughbred, the Cal-bred legend Best Pal is going to be a 2010 inductee into the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame. In August, he will become the seventh Cal-bred to be bestowed this honor. Bred and owned by the late John and Betty Mabee’s Golden Eagle Farm, Best Pal retired with 18 wins and more than $5.6 million in earnings. He is currently ranked second behind only Tiznow ($6,427,830) on the list of all-time leading Cal-bred money winners. Congratulations to the Mabee family and everyone at Golden Eagle Farm.

California’s Thoroughbred breeding and racing industry received some very bad news recently with the announcement that Marty and Pam Wygod’s River Edge Farm will be closing after 35 years of operation. Located in Buellton, California, River Edge has been one of the most successful breeding operations in the state each year. In fact, the Wygods were California’s leading breeders in 2006, 2007 and 2008, and have bred the earners of more than $50 million over the past three decades. They have continually stood the leading sires in the state, year after year, and have been one of the largest participants in the California-Bred Incentive Awards Program. The loss of this historic breeding power house will obviously have long term negative effects on the quality and quantity of horses produced in the Golden State. The Wygod operation is irreplaceable. There are very few that are willing and capable to make the investment that they made. Fortunately for California, the River Edge-based stallions will remain in the state and be relocated to other farms. In 2009, their stallions Tribal Rule, Benchmark and Bertrando covered 228 of 3,113 mares bred in the state. Their newest stallion, Dixie Chatter, reportedly covered nearly 80 mares this year. The Wygods have also announced that the dispersal of their California breeding stock and foals will take place at Barretts Equine Limited in conjunction with the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA) co-sponsored yearling sale in October. This will provide a significant opportunity for California breeders to purchase some

Managing Editor’s Welcome

A Worthy Choice

©Mesaros

When it comes down to a matter of opinion, like that of the 182-member National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, not everyone is going to agree with each decision that is made. But I have to agree with this group’s 2010 inductees to its prestigious shrine, especially the California-bred Best Pal who, after being on the ballot every year since 2005, is a worthy choice. With just one of his six career grade I wins achieved outside of his home state, many seem to think he is not deserving of this immortality, but the bay gelding was California’s proverbial “People’s Horse” with $5,668,245 in earnings from 47 starts, all but one in black-type company, that yielded 18 wins, 11 seconds and four thirds from the ages of two to eight. Bred and owned by the Golden Eagle Farm of the late John and Betty Mabee, Best Pal provides the cover story for this July 2010 issue of California Thoroughbred, along with the third in our four-part series of editorials featuring the California foals of 2010, this month highlighting the Golden State’s Central Coast. Besides an In Memoriam tribute to Snow Chief, the Eclipse Award-winning Cal-bred who died at the age of 27 on May 15 just hours before this year’s renewal of the grade I Preakness Stakes which he won in 1986, we have reviews of the past month’s graded stakes victories at Hollywood Park by the Cal-bred trio of Acclamation, Evening Jewel and Cost of Freedom. Our latest Racing in Southern California editorial features the May stakes wins by the Cal-bred duo of Unzip Me and U R All That I Am, while the CTBA Member Profile is on Mike Pegram, the breeder of four California champions and the owner and/or breeder of such top national performers of the last two decades as Real Quiet, Midnight Lute, Captain Steve, Silverbulletday, and this year’s Preakness winner Lookin At Lucky. This magazine also spotlights Villa Chardonnay: Horse With Wings, a horse rescue, retirement and adoption farm in Temecula, while other features include an analysis of the all-time highest-priced Cal-breds sold at public auction and an article on “Mossy” Mosbacher, whose career in horse racing has spanned nearly 80 years with his most recent stint being as a clocker at the San Luis Rey Downs training center in Bonsall. This month’s Down on the Farm piece is titled “What’s New In Suspension Fencing” and we also have for our readers the annual California-Bred Incentive Awards section that features an explanation of this lucrative program and complete details of all the Breeders Awards and Stallion Awards allocations for 2009, while the balance of this issue includes all our other regular columns, features and departments that we hope will also prove to be both enjoyable and helpful.

Best Pal: A Lasting Legacy

National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame

by EMILY SHIELDS The wildly popular California-bred Best Pal will join California-based runners Azeri and Point Given as the 2010 equine inductees into the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame. Having been on the ballot every year since 2005, it was only a matter of time before Best Pal joined the roster of racing’s most elite. Best Pal was foaled at John and Betty Mabee’s Golden Eagle Farm in Ramona on Feb. 12, 1988. The son of the farm’s stallion Habitony (Eng) was gelded early in life to damper an aggressive attitude, but it did nothing to temper his spirit. Under the tutelage of trainer Ian Jory, Best Pal debuted with a win at Hollywood Park on May 18, 1990. Two months later, the strapping juvenile began using the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club’s meet as his summer playground. He cantered through three straight impressive stakes victories, including the grade I, $200,000 Del Mar Futurity, before taking down his first grade I event in Santa Anita’s Norfolk Stakes. After a disappointing sixth-placed finish in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Belmont Park, Jory

sent the colt postward one final time in 1990. Best Pal took down the grade I, $1,000,000 Hollywood Futurity by a length over stablemate General Meeting. With that victory, he became the youngest Cal-bred millionaire in history, and added titles as California Horse of the Year and Champion Two-Year-Old Male to his rapidly expanding resumé. Best Pal prepped for the Kentucky Derby with a third place finish in the San Rafael Stakes (grade II) and a narrow loss in the Santa Anita Derby (grade I). He carried the hopes of his fanatical followers into the “Run for the Roses” and, for a few dramatic strides, he looked as if he would win the country’s biggest race. Strike the Gold ran him down on the outside, with Best Pal finishing a heartbreaking second. After losing both the Preakness Stakes and the Silver Screen Handicap, it appeared as if the magic of Best Pal was wearing off. Instead, it was just beginning, and Best Pal regained form to win the grade II, $150,000 Swaps Stakes by Continued on next page

He then defeated older horses in the inaugural Pacific Classic, outlasting Twilight Agenda and 1990 Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Unbridled to the wire. Although a fourth-placed finish in Louisiana’s Super Derby knocked the gelding out of contention for an Eclipse Award, the race boosted Best Pal’s earnings to over $2 million and earned him his second California Horse of the Year title, as well as the honor for Champion Three-Year-Old Male. Now under the care of trainer Gary Jones, who took over shortly before the Pacific Classic, Best Pal shook off a trio of late season losses and entered 1992 an even better horse. In the span of five months, he nailed down the grade II San Fernando Stakes, the Strub Stakes and $1,000,000 Santa Anita Handicap, both grade I events, and moved past Snow Chief as the richest Cal-bred of all time in the grade I, $500,000 Oaklawn Park Handicap. Unfortunately, Best Pal was injured in the Pimlico Special and missed the rest of the year, losing his Eclipse Award as Champion Older Male to Pleasant Tap, but he earned that award in California, as well as his third straight local Horse of the Year trophy.

Best Pal’s connections contended that the bay gelding was never as good after returning from the injury. That is quite a statement, considering that Best Pal breached the $4 million earnings benchmark while winning the grade I, $750,000 Hollywood Gold Cup at age five, followed by the $250,000 California Cup Classic in the fall. At six, in the care of trainer Richard Mandella, he won the grade III Native Diver Handicap, and managed to win the grade II San Antonio Handicap at age seven. After a lone poor start as an eight-year-old, Best Pal was finally retired. The hometown hero returned to Golden Eagle Farm with $5,668,245 in earnings and 18 wins, 11 seconds and four thirds in 47 starts. He won 17 stakes races and is widely considered to be the best horse to never win an Eclipse Award. His record eight California championships outweigh that one glaring omission from his biography. After appearing bored in retirement, Best Pal was given a job as a track pony at Golden Eagle in Ramona. Unfortunately, while at work, he died suddenly of an apparent heart attack in November of 1998. With his induction on Aug. 13, Best Pal will become the seventh Cal-bred to join the Hall of Fame, along with Ancient Title, Café Prince, Emperor of Norfolk, Native Diver, Swaps, and Tiznow who was honored in 2009.

Buster Millerick In The Hall Of Fame The National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame will induct Michael Ernest “Buster” Millerick this summer, after the Historic Review Committee process elected to honor the California horseman’s accomplishments. The committee was formed to consider candidates who have been inactive for at least 25 years. Millerick was born in Petaluma in 1905. After a brief career as a jockey and a rodeo stock handler in the 1920s, Millerick learned the Thoroughbred training game from Hall of Famer Tom Smith, who conditioned the immortal Seabiscuit. Millerick galloped Seabiscuit on occasion before switching to training full time. Millerick became a fixture on the Southern California circuit for nearly 50 years, winning training titles at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Hollywood Park and Santa Anita Park. His 54 individual stakes winners included Countess Fleet, winner of the 1955 Milady and Vanity Handicaps, and the 1969 Del Mar Futurity winner George Lewis, a Californiabred son of Envoy. He also trained Fleet Nasrullah, who developed into one of the state’s leading sires, and Cal-bred Kissin’ George, a dazzling sprinter who scored 13 stakes victories in the 1960s. Millerick’s greatest success came with Native Diver ($1,026,500), a wildly popular, nearly black Cal-bred son of Imbros. Native Diver possessed blinding speed, but Millerick was able to coax that brilliance to hold over a route of ground: Native Diver won three straight Hollywood Gold Cups at 1 1/4 miles from 1965 through 1967. He won 37 of 81 starts, including 34 stakes races, while racing through

seven seasons. The mighty racehorse died just days after winning the 1967 Del Mar Handicap under 130 pounds as an eight-year-old. He is buried at Hollywood Park, and was inducted into the national Hall of Fame in 1978. Mr. Prime Minister became Millerick’s final stakes winner, taking the grade III Los Angeles Handicap in 1983. Millerick retired in 1984, having won 1,886 races in his career. He died in Arcadia on Sept. 30, 1986.

He’s “The One”

The Grade California-Breds

by EMILY SHIELDS E. W. “Bud” Johnston, the owner of Old English Rancho in Sanger along with his wife, Judy, knew right away that Acclamation was “the one.” The youngster by the farm’s premier stallion Unusual Heat stood saddled in the shedrow and caught Johnston’s eye. “It was when he first came up from the pasture to be broken,” Johnston recalls. “I turned to my wife and said, ‘This is the horse I’ve been looking for my whole life – this is the one.’” As Johnston predicted, Acclamation has developed into the farm’s first recognized grade I-winning homebred by taking the $250,000 Charles Whittingham Memorial Handicap at Hollywood Park on June 5. Old English Rancho has a history of producing top stakes horses, but has not scored at the highest level since the grading of races began in 1973. It has taken a while for Acclamation’s talent to bloom. The four-year-old colt had managed only two wins in 17 starts prior to May 15 of this year, always running well but missing the winner’s circle. Stretched out to 1 1/2 miles for the first time in the grade II, $150,000 Jim Murray Handicap, Acclamation responded with a dazzling runaway performance, winning by 7 1/2 lengths under jockey Christian Santiago Reyes. The rivals in that race allowed Acclamation to cruise along on an uncontested lead of up to 10 lengths, and were unable to catch him in the stretch. They couldn’t possibly allow him to get away with those tactics again, could they? They could, and did. In the Whittingham, Acclamation’s nine rivals dropped back and merely watched again as Reyes eased the front-runner to as much as a 3 1/2-length advantage on the backstretch. The pair waltzed through fractions of :24.58, :49 flat and 1:12.57 and, when it came

time for the closers to run on, Acclamation had enough to hold them off. He dug in gamely into the stretch and determinedly kept his rivals at bay. He lunged under the wire 1 1/2 lengths in front of Hyades as the 8-5 race favorite Loup Breton (Ire) closed to be fourth. The final time for the 1 1/4-mile distance was 1:59.45 on a firm turf course. Donald Warren, 58, conditions Acclamation, who became the first Cal-bred to win the Whittingham since Lava Man stormed home in 2006. Acclamation now has four wins, two seconds and six thirds in 19 starts for earnings of $497,048. Old English Rancho had even more of a stake in the Whittingham, as three of the 10 runners were sired by Unusual Heat. Besides Acclamation, Brushburn finished third and Unusual Suspect ran sixth. Brushburn was making his graded stakes debut coming off a stylish win in an allowance optional claiming event, and Unusual Suspect had finished fifth behind Acclamation in the Jim Murray. Unusual Heat, a 20-year-old son of Nureyev and California’s leading sire of 2008 and 2009, stands for a private fee. Acclamation’s dam is the unraced Silveyville mare Winning in Style. Five of her seven foals to race are all winners, including the stakes-placed fillies Strut Your Stuff and Always in Style. Acclamation is her only stakes winner. Johnston is enjoying the ride with his chosen star. “He's a beautiful colt with a big heart,” and the former President of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA). “We are all so proud of him, and are looking forward to more graded stakes wins.” That chance could come in Hollywood Park’s closing day feature, the $100,000 Sunset Handicap (grade III) on July 18, which is the next scheduled spot on Acclamation’s agenda.

The Grade California-Breds

Evening Jewel: A Shining Example

by RUDI GROOTHEDDE “The aim at Golden Eagle Farm has always been to breed quality horses,” said Larry Mabee, the only son of the late John and Betty Mabee, California’s leading breeders from 1988 through 2005, after Evening Jewel, whom he bred in partnership with his mom, won the grade II, $150,000 Honeymoon Handicap at Hollywood Park on May 31. “And Evening Jewel is a great example of this,” Larry concluded of the three-year-old daughter of Northern Afleet whose other career graded stakes score had come in the grade I, $400,000 Central Bank Ashland Stakes at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky, on April 3. Sandwiched between these two starts was another stellar start effort from this bay filly, namely a runner-up finish— by a heartbreaking nose—to multiple grade I winner Blind Luck in the grade I, $584,300 Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs in Louisville on April 30. Foaled at the Mabee family’s famed Thoroughbred nursery in Ramona on Feb. 26, 2007, Evening Jewel was sold for a mere $8,000 at the 2008 Keeneland September Yearling Sale, before being purchased privately for $132,500 by her current owners after being withdrawn from the OBS (Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company) Spring Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training held in Florida the following April. “We really like her owners,” said Larry of Tom and Marilyn Braly who are enjoying the thrill ride of their lives with Evening Jewel. Larry added, “We’re always happy when our horses can bring a lot of excitement and success to those owners who buy them.” That success now includes four wins and five seconds in 10 starts and a bankroll of $606,943 to date. A winner in her third trip to post, at Santa Anita Park on Nov. 8, Evening Jewel then parlayed a second-placed finish at Hollywood Park to subsequent grade II winner Caracortado, a fellow Cal-bred, into a victory in the

$100,000 California Breeders’ Champion Stakes at Santa Anita on Dec. 27. Her next two starts at the Arcadia track produced runner-up finishes in the grade III, $100,000 Santa Ysabel and grade I, $250,000 Las Virgenes Stakes, the latter—again by a nose—to Blind Luck. In Inglewood on Memorial Day, Evening Jewel went gate-to-wire, as she had done in the Ashland, to post a head victory over Cozi Rosie in 1:48.87 for the 1 1/8-mile trip as the 4-5 favorite on her turf debut. With Victor Espinoza in the irons, she became the 15th Cal-bred to win this prestigious event in 59 runnings, an honor role that includes the last locally produced victor in 1994, 12-time stakes winner Work the Crowd, as well as Bushel-n-Peck who triumphed in 1961, and whose son Wild Again won the inaugural edition of the grade I, $3 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Hollywood Park in 1984. The Mabee family bred both Evening Jewel’s second dam Jeweled Lady, out of Excellent Lady who was the 1999/2000 California Broodmare of the Year, and her first dam Jewel of the Night, an eight-year-old daughter of Giant’s Causeway whom Lee and Susan Searing purchased for $67,000 at the Barretts October Mixed Sale in 2007. Evening Jewel is the first of four foals to date out of this half-sister to Saucey Evening, voted the 2008 California Champion Two-YearOld Filly. Larry concluded, “Even though our local breeding industry is facing some challenges right now, I am positive about the future as we have so many other good quality mares in our breeding shed.” But the final words should probably go to Evening Jewel’s trainer Jim Cassidy who paid the ultimate compliment to this shining example of the Mabee family’s breeding program when he said, “I think that I’ll swim her next, that’s the only thing she hasn’t done yet. She’s just a wonderful filly.”

Cost of Freedom: Taking Another Bow

The Grade California-Breds

by MARCIE HEACOX California-bred Cost of Freedom served notice that he’s returned to full strength after a win in the grade III, $100,000 Los Angeles Handicap at Hollywood Park on June 5. He rose from the claiming ranks to become a grade I winner, but then had to grapple with recurring soundness issues and losing comebacks before his return to stakes glory. “He’s back to his old self, huh?,” winning jockey Tyler Baze said. “He’s just incredible. He’s one hundred percent right now and if they can just keep him like this for the rest of the year, it’s on to the Breeders’ Cup again.” Baze sent Cost of Freedom to his customary leading position shortly after the gates opened. Grade I-winning Cal-bred M One Rifle, the second choice in the field of seven, stayed on his hip in second. The expected showdown between the two speedsters never materialized as M One Rifle faded entering the stretch and E Z’s Gentleman took up his position chasing the even-money favorite. Cost of Freedom widened the gap at the top of the stretch and held sway to the finish line to win by three quarters of a length. He carried 122 pounds over six furlongs in 1:08.49, less than a second off the track record. E Z’s Gentleman finished second and longshot Cal-bred My Summer Slew raced in third throughout. M One Rifle, Hiya Silver, Jiggly and Bet On Victor completed the order of finish. Cost of Freedom is owned by Gary and Cecil Barber and trained by John Sadler, who posted a record fifth win in the Los Angeles. Bred by Harris Farms, the seven-year-old dark bay or brown gelding is by their stallion Cee’s Tizzy out of Freedom Dance, by Moscow Ballet. Sold for $20,000 at the 1996 California Thoroughbred Sales (CTS) Del Mar Select & Preferred Yearling Sale, Harris Farms claimed back Freedom Dance for $16,000 when she won her final career start in February of 2000.

“As I recall, Freedom Dance was bred to Cee’s Tizzy not for pedigree reasons so much as the fact he was the best stallion we had standing at the time, and she was from such a good female family,” farm veterinarian Dr. Jeanne BowersLepore explained. Freedom Dance is a half-sister to dual stakes winner Top of Our Game and stakes winner Truly Needy. She won nine times and earned $136,922 in 17 starts. As a broodmare, she’s produced four winners, including Cost of Freedom and the $148,680-earner Never Ever. Freedom Dance has a two-year-old Kitten’s Joy colt named Turn On the Pumps in training and is currently in foal to California’s leading sire Unusual Heat. Cost of Freedom began his career in claiming and allowance races, with a runner-up finish in the 2008 edition of the $150,000 Tiznow Stakes along the way. In July of 2008, Cost of Freedom was claimed for $50,000 by Sadler who also claimed Never Ever for $40,000 in October of 2005. “John Sadler and I have been friends for years, back to when he worked for Eddie Gregson,” said John Harris. “I never feel bad about losing a horse, and am delighted when they go on and do well.” Cost of Freedom proceeded to win an allowance race and then the grade I, $250,000 Ancient Title Stakes in September of 2008. Multiple failed vet exams followed, resulting in scratches from two stakes races. He made a comeback last September that culminated with a thirdplaced run in the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Sprint (grade I). After another six-month sabbatical, he returned with a sharp allowance optional claiming win at Hollywood Park. Cost of Freedom has now won eight of 15 starts and earned $666,105 since his debut in August of 2006. Gary Barber said his next race may be the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club’s grade I Bing Crosby Stakes on Aug. 1.

“U” Gotta Love These Cal-Bred Fillies

by EMILY SHIELDS Escape With Me’s three-year-old son of Redattore (Brz), made three starts at Golden Gate Park this winter. Escape With Me foaled an Aragorn (Ire) colt earlier this year. A Double Celebration Less than 48 hours after Unzip Me’s win, U R All That I Am took on a field of four state-bred rivals in the $62,400 Fran’s Valentine Stakes going a mile on the turf. Under Rafael Bejarano, her fourth pilot in five starts, U R All That I Am stalked outside of a fair pace set by Woman Warrior. She looked keen to make a move well before Bejarano cued her to take the lead in midstretch, and she drew clear to a widening 2 1/4-length victory, stopping the clock in 1:34.63. Woman Warrior held for second, while Salty Fries came under the wire third. You Lift Me Up, the 3-5 favorite, finished fourth, just as she did in the 2009 edition of the Fran’s Valentine. Tom and Debi Stull’s Tommy Town Thoroughbreds bred both U R All That I Am, whom they still own, and You Lift Me Up, who is campaigned by George Todaro and trainer Jerry Holendorfer. U R All That I Am is by Valid Wager out of the winning Fort Calgary mare Fort Silver, the dam of five stakes winners. U R All That I Am improved her record to eight wins, three seconds and a third in 15 starts, with earnings of $307,628. The Fran’s Valentine was not only her second stakes win of the meet, after taking the $147,000 B. Thoughtful Stakes on April 24, but was also her first triumph on the grass.

A pair of flashy chestnut four-year-old California-bred fillies blazed over the Hollywood Park turf course in May, bringing home a pair of listed stakes races just two days apart. Another Victory Dash Unzip Me made it five wins in a row with a front-running victory in the $74,230 Great Lady M. Stakes during the Inglewood track’s Friday night program on May 21. The daughter of City Zip sprinted to a clear lead early, tugging aggressively in the first eighth of a mile before settling down three lengths in front. Minute Limit (Ire) rallied in the stretch but couldn’t get within 1 1/4 lengths of Unzip Me and jockey Joe Talamo, who completed the grassy six-furlong dash in 1:09.04. Porto Marmay (Ire) finished in third place, only a neck behind Minute Limit, while Cal-bred Dotsy Jean was another head back in fourth, beaten less than two lengths for the win. It was the third consecutive stakes win for the Martin Jones-trained Unzip Me, who was the 4-5 favorite in a field of seven coming off a score in the grade III, $100,000 Las Cienegas Handicap at Santa Anita Park on April 11. She now has a record of seven wins, two seconds and a third from 12 starts, and has earned $327,430 for owners Harris Farms Inc, Jones, Donald Valpredo and Per Antonsen. Valpredo and Harris Farms bred Unzip Me, who is out of the winning Arazi mare Escape With Me. She is her dam’s first foal to race, but isn’t the only one, as Stealth Rocket,

Mike Pegram: A California Success Story

by EMILY SHIELDS car dealer Hal Earnhardt introduced Pegram to trainer Bob Baffert. Earnhardt’s future success with the silver-haired horseman would include a victory by Cal-bred Indian Charlie in the 1998 Santa Anita Derby (grade I). When Pegram met Baffert, both a friendship and a business partnership were born that included Pegram’s first Quarter Horse purchase With Pegram’s urging, Baffert made the switch from Quarter Horses to Thoroughbreds. He saddled Broadway’s Top Gun, owned in partnership by Pegram and Bob Roth, to defeat future Hall of Famer and Cal-bred superstar Best Pal in the Ladbroke Futurity. Pegram and Roth used those earnings to purchase a Cal-bred son of Flying Paster out of the 1990 Barretts May Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training for $80,000. The lanky gray was named Letthebighossroll. “We had high hopes for him early,” Pegram said of Letthebighossroll. “He was a true fighter, running until he was nine, and he was my first really good horse.” Letthebighossroll banked $1,014,377 while winning 18 of 60 starts, including 10 stakes races.

Businessman and racehorse owner Mike Pegram is renowned for his success in the Triple Crown and at the Breeders’ Cup. In the past 12 years, he has campaigned such stars as Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner Real Quiet and two-time Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner Midnight Lute, as well as Dubai World Cup winner Captain Steve, Hall of Fame inductee Silverbulletday and recent Preakness Stakes hero Lookin At Lucky. But before he was making national headlines, Pegram was racking up stakes wins with California-breds, the bread-and-butter of his successful Southern California racing operation. Pegram was born on Feb. 16, 1952, in Fort Knox, Kentucky, but grew up in Princeton, Indiana. His first forays to the racetrack were at nearby Ellis Park in the Bluegrass State. It is remarkable to think that the quaint Kentucky track would be the springboard for Pegram’s future exploits! Pegram owned his first Thoroughbreds with his father, Jim, who also helped him start up his first McDonalds franchises in Seattle, Washington. In 1985, the Arizona-based

through five stakes as a sophomore, including the $125,000 C.H.B.P.A. California Cup Sprint Handicap, Letthebighossroll appeared to cool off, not winning another stakes until he was six, when he took the George Warwick Handicap at Bay Meadows Racecourse. At age eight, he won his first graded stake, winning the $189,000 Triple Bend Breeders’ Cup Handicap (grade III) by a hard-fought three quarters of a length over Score Quick, a horse half his age. Letthebighossroll retired in 1997, with two California championships to his name. That first success with a Cal-bred was hardly Pegram’s last. A California Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (CTBA) member since 1995, he campaigned Argolid, a half-brother to top California sire Flying Paster, to win the $111,600 On Trust Handicap. The son of Saros (GB) also finished second in the California Breeders’ Champion Stakes and third in the Louisiana Derby (grade III) en route to earning $504,441. Pegram found success with the sire In Excess (Ire), whom he originally owned in partnership with Vessels Stallion Farm. He campaigned many of the stallion’s offspring to stakes victories, including Fun In Excess, who won the $125,000 Cal Cup Matron and two other stakes races. The lovely bay filly Censored won the $100,000 Melair Stakes, followed by a couple of stakes as a four-year-old the following year. Pegram’s wickedly fast homebred Gibson County won the $150,000 California Breeders’ Champion Stakes and made $376,465 lifetime. Pegram originally wanted to make the quick colt a cutting horse upon retirement, but was convinced to try him at stud. Gibson County became an accomplished young sire, producing two stakes winners before his untimely death in Florida during 2008. Pegram’s filly Inexcessive Speed won the $100,000 California Sires Stakes five years before her full brother Icecoldbeeratreds burst onto the scene. In the summer of 2002, Icecoldbeeratreds won the $125,000 Graduation Stakes prior to scoring in the $250,000 Del Mar Futurity (grade II). He suffered a fatal injury while training in early 2003, meeting a similar unfortuante fate as Pegram’s Inexcessivelygood, a 1997 Triple

F E A T U R E

Crown candidate whose death in the Jim Beam Stakes dashed the owner’s early Kentucky Derby dreams. Pegram’s luck with In Excess carried into the breeding shed. Icantgoforthat won the 2003 Monrovia Handicap (grade III) for owners Andy Broberg and Palmer Knapp, while Controlled earned the title of California Champion TwoYear-Old Female in 1998, by winning the $111,500 Generous Portion, $100,000 California Sires and $150,000 California Breeders’ Champion Stakes for owner Edward Hand. Pegram bred and sold both fillies; Controlled is a full sister to Icecoldbeeratreds and Inexcessive Speed. She has since gone on to produce the $1,153,595-earner Bear Now, a grade I-placed multiple graded stakes winner. “Good horses come from everywhere,” Pegram explained. “We've never been the kind to buy a pedigree, we buy athletes.” He references the Cal-bred program as particularly useful weapon in the breeding and racing of Thoroughbreds. “The Cal-bred stake program gives you a longer time to develop a horse to become a top horse in open company,” he said. “For example, Letthebighossroll showed a Cal-bred could compete in open company and achieved great things. Because of the Cal-bred stakes program, he was given the chance to develop into a good horse in open company later in life.” It is in California that Pegram intends to stay. Now with 26 McDonalds franchises and two casinos in the west, as well as a home in Del Mar, Pegram is trying desperately to help keep the state’s racing industry alive and is an advocate of devising a plan—such as the expansion of Los Alamitos—to help the ailing sport. “There is no state that has better weather, and there's not a better racetrack in the world than Santa Anita (Park). There isn't a racetrack you can have more fun at than Del Mar, and there's no reason why we shouldn't continue to have the best racing in the world.” With a handful of juveniles preparing to be unveiled at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club this summer, Pegram will continue to etch his legacy in Southern California racing lore.

All of which provided a nice respite from the warming spring sun. After visiting the horses within their stable, they took me to meet some of their other inhabitants. One of these was the farm’s namesake. A beautiful filly named Chardonnay. Chardonnay is an elegant four-year-old filly and serves as a beautiful centerpiece to their sanctuary. Chardonnay was their first rescue in California. Her palomino coloring served as a beautiful complement to the day. Her natural color serving as a wonderful addition to the landscape. With blue sky and rolling green hills, Chardonnay permitted me the pleasure of brushing my fingers through her mane, all the while looking at my camera in curiosity. Once finished, she kindly “posed” for some photographs amidst our conversation. In recalling the moments, it seemed that her early curiosity served as a hint that she wanted her photograph taken. With this in mind, I kindly obliged her as she gently stood and “smiled.” I gently touched her nose a couple of times, and we then kindly traversed to the other side of the sanctuary to visit some of the other horses. After a pleasant walk through the sanctuary, we came upon a paddock of beautiful Arabians. Co-mingling with the Arabians were some other horses who, much like their Arabian counterparts, stood with ears pricked in a moment of equine curiosity. Walking up to the fence provided a moment of interaction. While all of them were curious, some were a little more reluctant to advance beyond their own comfort zone. After five minutes or so, a beautiful filly named Meyuchad advanced up close to visit us. Horses will look at you with a kind curiosity. Then a horse such as Meyuchad will look into you. She was the most personable of the horses within her paddock, and even began to follow me along the fence as I perused and took photos. As though she wanted to be the focal point of my visit. As with Chardonnay, I kindly obliged her. She placed her beautiful head both above and in-between the fence. As though playing her own brand of peek-a-boo. She provided me with moments that one would never ever forget. She was a portrait of Arabian elegance and childlike innocence. The type of qualities innate to horses, and in full abundance to Meyuchad. Translated, Meyuchad means “special.” In the moments that I spent with her, she made it abundantly clear why she was named so. This beautiful horse spoke to me through the fence of her paddock. Not with the use of words, but in the beautiful and sensible way that only horses can speak. I miss her and look forward to seeing her again. I will forever remember her looking at me as I walked away from her paddock and back to the center of the sanctuary. A look that would have been expressed in the simple words of “come back and see me sometime soon.” Meyuchad may have been the focus of my camera’s lense, but she found a special place in my heart that very day. Meyuchad spoke most intimately with me but, in retrospect, all of the horses of Villa Chardonnay spoke in their own manner and tone. Some more vibrant, while others more muted. Each horse possessing its own color palette of

personality and “attitude.” One must visit a sanctuary such as Villa Chardonnay. As prefaced earlier, the wind of heaven truly is that which blows through a horses ears. In my three hours or so at Villa Chardonnay, I was able to receive yet a small introduction into what heaven must be like. It is a place where human kindness and equine beauty intertwine to create a beautiful landscape of love and mutual regard. One can immediately sense the deep appreciation that each equine holds for those who simply love and care for them. Those who see them as an indispensable function within the lives of humans. A sign that not all is wrong within our world. That within the gates of Villa Chardonnay rest the peaceful waters and a valley of hope and love. All beautifully woven together by that very wind. For the wind that blows between a horse’s ears is the very same wind that brings human and equine together in a bond of mutual love and hope. A wind that blows so gently. A wind that can only be bequeathed by heaven itself. The Work. The Mission The Villa Chardonnay: Horses With Wings sanctuary is dedicated to the compassionate care of animals, primarily horses. They provide love, a home and critical care for abused, neglected, slaughter bound and/or abandoned creatures. By utilizing their horses for equine health-assisted programs they improve both human and equine lives. Their ultimate goal is to improve animal rights, eliminate abusive training and be the voice for those who cannot speak. Villa Chardonnay is supported by individual donations and receives no Federal, State, County or City funding. You can make a difference with donations of money or supplies, sponsorships and volunteering. All donations and sponsorships may be used for various horse related costs and with various horses. As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt agency your donations of equipment, feed, supplies or funds are deductible to the full extent allowable by law. Please consult your tax advisor for details. Ways To Help The Horses Every donation or sponsorship helps. Even small amounts make a huge difference in the end, especially if one can give on a regular basis. At Villa Chardonnay there are always costs associated with the basic maintenance of the entire sanctuary; every month. Just the basic costs are well into the thousands, then when one adds shoeing, vaccines, veterinary bills and all the special needs, the amount is staggering. Villa Chardonnay was started because Monica and Louise love horses very much and each one deserves the best care that they can give. Only thanks to continued help can they continue. It is also crucial that an emergency fund kept for unexpected medical emergencies. This fund is critically short at this time. Villa Chardonnay receives no federal or state funding, relying only on individual or corporate assistance from the general pubic. Please help Monika and Louise continue to care for all of their babies!

Nestled in rolling hills adjacent to the horse-related community of Santa Theresita, you will find one of the oldest and most beautiful homages to the Thoroughbred in this state, California Thoroughbred Ranch. Now in its fourth decade of operation, the ranch was built from the ground up by Jack and Susie Farmer who still own the beautiful facility and live right on the premises. Once an abandoned alfalfa field, the ranch is a striking portrayal of early California architecture, right down to the adobe and mission-style construction of the barns and office complex. The main barn contains stalls for 40 horses in training and the foaling barn comes equipped with closed circuit television monitors that are linked up to the farm manager’s office and residence 24 hours a day. Newborns are kept in stalls with their dams for the first 36 hours of life and monitored closely. After that, they are moved outdoors to grassy paddocks and pastures. The region’s temperate climate allows for horses to live outdoors year-round, and the ranch’s pastures range from two acres to almost 50 and follow the contours of the foothills. To date, more than 200 stakes winners have been foaled and raised on the ranch’s green fields. Others, like last year’s Eclipse champion juvenile colt Valid Point, were brought to the ranch as yearlings for breaking and schooling. California Thoroughbred Ranch also has an excellent reputation as a training center. It

offers five round pens, an indoor riding arena and a scenic uphill gallop that winds its way through the facility. There are also two treadmills and a swimming pool, where lay-ups can regain their conditioning without risk of further injury. The ranch is home to two of California’s finest stallions. Super Dad is the sire of 22 graded stakes winners and countless other stakes performers. His champion daughter Daddy’s Little Gal captured last year’s Cal Cup Juvenile Fillies and this year’s grade I Santa Anita Oaks. Moneymaker was foaled at the ranch and now stands at stud here. This graded stakes winner of nearly $400,000 has thrust himself into the national spotlight when his son Hayburner captured this year’s Travers Stakes at Saratoga. Winner of the Wood Memorial and second in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, Hayburner now has earnings over $1 million. The Cal-bred is now pointing for the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Farm manager Bob Trainer has more than 30 years of experience in this business and gives your horses the personal care and attention they deserve. Assistant manager and yearling trainer Steve Winner also has many years of veterinary experience, although the farm’s main vet lives just down the road and is on call 24 hours a day, especially during the busy foaling season. Visitors are welcome and encouraged to come and tour the facilities. Also visit their impressive website at www.Califthoroughbredranch.com.

The Best-Seller List

Industry Insight

by LISA GROOTHEDDE When the three-year-old colt Drosselmeyer crossed the wire first in the 142nd running of the $1 million Belmont Stakes (grade I) on June 5, it marked a milestone for the California breeding industry. His dam, Golden Ballet, was herself a notable runner who ranked at the head of her class in two respects earlier in the decade. The Moscow Ballet mare, who was bred in California by Jerry Dutton and Vladimir Popovich, won Santa Anita Park’s 2001 Santa Anita Oaks (grade I) and Las Virgenes Stakes (grade I), and was subsequently rewarded with a title as California’s Champion Three-Year-Old Female. That same year, she set a record as the highest-priced Californiabred broodmare prospect in history when she was purchased for $1.6 million by Aaron and Marie Jones at the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale in Kentucky. Like Golden Ballet, many Thoroughbreds featuring Golden State origins have commanded top dollar in the commercial marketplace. The results from the 2010 Belmont Stakes offer an opportunity to look back at the most expensive California-breds ever sold at public auction. More For Mares To date, 13 Cal-breds have achieved sale prices of $1 million or more. Among these seven-figure sellers, 12 are female, one of whom appears on the list twice. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the first statebred to reach this plateau. On Nov. 12, 1985, the Hollywood Park grade I winner A Kiss for Luck, then six years old, fetched $1.45 million from Texan George Aubin while carrying a Nureyev foal during Keeneland’s premier mixed sale. The Reflected Glory mare, a California champion juvenile runner who was bred by Rancho Jonata, later earned accolades as the second dam of La Brea Stakes (grade I) winner and 2004/2005 Valkyr Trophy recipient Alphabet Kisses. The Keeneland November sale yielded the highest-

priced California-bred of all time on Nov. 7, 2000, when Magical Allure entered the auction ring as a five-year-old broodmare. Consigned by her breeders, John and Betty Mabee, and offered with a Storm Cat foal in utero, the grade I-winning daughter of General Meeting, who had secured a California championship crown in 1998, was purchased by Shadwell Estate Company Ltd. for $4.2 million. Magical Allure ranked fifth on the list of top-priced broodmares sold in North America during 2000. She has since produced a sole winner, Kaseh — the colt she was carrying at the time of her record-breaking sale. The Mabees hit a second homerun at the 2000 Keeneland November sale with their homebred Career Collection, another talented filly from General Meeting’s 1995 crop. While racing for the couple’s Golden Eagle Farm, she captured two grade II events and ran second in the 1997 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (grade I), culminating her two-year-old season with a state championship title for her age and gender. Bred to Gone West as a five-year-old, she was sold for $1.9 million to Lisa Troutt of WinStar Farm, the Kentucky operation which now campaigns Drosselmeyer. Career Collection produced two early winners, and was re-sold at Keeneland in 2004 to the Japanese horseman Katsumi Yoshida for $450,000. Ranking second on the all-time list is the most expensive Cal-bred juvenile purchase and the state’s highest-priced male of any age: the David Newcomb-bred Unbridled Slew. Acquired by Darley Stable for a record-shattering $2.5 million at California’s 2006 Barretts May Sale of Two-YearOlds in Training after he worked one furlong in a blistering :9 3/5 at Fairplex Park, the Red Bullet colt was never entered in a pari-mutuel race. Another star-crossed Cal-bred was Charming Hostess, an $800,000 graduate of the 2007 Barretts March Sale of

Thoroughbred Club. The Relaunch mare, who was foaled in 1986, went on to produce the 1995 El Encino Stakes (grade II) winner Klassy Kim and the 61-time starter Koolinger (Jpn), a multiple stakes winner and $4.2 million-earner in his native Japan. Three additional Cal-bred females are members of the seven-figure sales club, with purchase prices of $1 million each: Shywing, Moscow Burning and Leave Me Alone. The five-time stakes winner and grade I runner-up Shywing ran seventh for her new connections in the 1986 Breeders’ Cup Distaff (grade I), just one day after she sold as a four-year-old during a Hollywood Park auction which featured horses of racing age. Grade II winner and 2004 California Horse of the Year Moscow Burning, her home state’s leading money-winning distaffer with career earnings of $1,417,800, began her broodmare career in Japan after she was purchased as a six-year-old by Shadai Farm at the 2006 Keeneland November sale. California champion Leave Me Alone, the runaway winner of the 2005 Test Stakes (grade I) for three-year-old fillies at Saratoga Race Course, joined Frank and Jane Lyon’s Summer Wind Farm broodmare band after she was offered at the 2007 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Selected Fall Mixed Sale while carrying her first foal, by A.P. Indy. Falling just short of the $1 million benchmark is Tizdubai, a full sister to 2000 Eclipse Horse of the Year Tiznow who raised the commercial ceiling for California-bred weanlings when she brought $950,000 at the 2001 Keeneland November sale. The Cee’s Tizzy filly won Del Mar’s grade II Sorrento Stakes for owner Darley Stable in 2003. The state’s top-priced weanling colt is Daiwa Falcon, a stakesplaced winner in Japan who sold at Keeneland in 1999 for $425,000. By General Meeting, he was bred by the Mabees. Bringing the review of best-selling Cal-breds full circle—and back to the Belmont Stakes—is the 1985 state champion Barberstown, a grade II winner by Gummo who ran third in the 1983 edition of the storied New York race, then sold in a Del Mar dispersal two months later to McDermott Ranch in Texas. The $850,000 purchase price for Barberstown, who eventually found a niche as a regional sire in the South, remains a record among three-year-old males who have been offered at public auction.

Industry Insight Cont’d. Selected Two-Year-Olds in Training who was bred by Shields Thoroughbreds Inc. and who also went to Darley. A full sister to the stakes-winning, $600,000 auction purchase Race for Glory, the Cape Town filly set a record as her home state’s top-selling juvenile of her gender, but was euthanized after she sustained a training injury at Hollywood Park while preparing for her first start. Realizing a much happier fate was the state champion distaffer Gourmet Girl, whose $2.25-million pricetag from the 2002 Keeneland November sale is the third-highest among all Cal-breds and second-best among broodmares. The 2001 Eclipse Champion Older Female, a multiple grade I-winning millionaire by Cee’s Tizzy, was bred by Carl and Olivia Cannata and is currently represented by the dual stakes-placed winner Luxury Class. Occupying two positions on the list of top-selling California-breds is the regally bred winner Servaline, another product of the Mabees’ Golden Eagle Farm, which dominated the state’s leading breeders list from 1988 through 2005. The 2000 Storm Cat half-sister to four-time grade I winner Excellent Meeting sold to Brushwood Stable for $2 million at the 2001 Keeneland July Select Yearling Sale, then elicited a $1.275-million bid from Courtlandt Farm as a Keeneland November broodmare five years later. Servaline’s only starter to date, the Gone West filly Westline, is a winner. The state’s highest-priced yearling colt is Shamgaan, by Nureyev. Also bred by the Mabees, he commanded $600,000 at the 1991 California Thoroughbred Sales (CTS) Del Mar Yearling Sale, but ultimately failed to win in seven starts overseas. Recent grade I winners River’s Prayer and Romance Is Diane are each noteworthy for eliciting seven-figure bids as Keeneland November racing or broodmare prospects. The former, a 2003 daughter of Devon Lane who was bred by Vessels Stallion Farm LLC, sold for $1.5 million in 2007. The latter, a 2004 daughter of In Excess (Ire) and dual California champion who was bred by Swan Equine Service Co., sold for $1.35 million in 2008.

Living In The Fast Lane

Industry Insight by LARRY STEWART

When I walked into the office at San Luis Rey Downs in Bonsall, there in the waiting room, was a slight, fit-looking elderly gentleman. I knew he had to be “Mossy.” That’s what friends call Joseph Lee Mosbacher. They also call him a horse racing legend. Until recently, Mossy was employed as a clocker at San Luis Rey Downs, a training center located in Northern San Diego County. Because of recent financial difficulties, Mossy volunteered to step down. That doesn’t mean he is retired. He just no longer gets paid. No need to feel sorry for him, though. He has had a fulfilling career in horse racing that spans nearly 80 years. That’s not a misprint. Mossy ran away from home at age 13 and was soon galloping Thoroughbreds. He is now 92. ©Dave Cantrel Photography

F E A T U R E

Mossy has done it all. Besides being a clocker, he has been an exercise rider, a formidable jockey, a top trainer, a respected jockey’s agent, a friend to the biggest names in both horse racing and Hollywood, and is now a published poet. Not bad for an eighth-grade dropout. These days, when he isn’t helping out around San Luis Rey Downs, he’s playing golf with friends at the nearby San Luis Rey Downs Golf-Tennis Resort & Country Club course, going on long walks with his beloved dog Spike, or doing something. Getting Mossy, a friendly outgoing sort, to talk about his life was easy. And what a life it has been. Mossy was born in Buffalo, New York, on Oct. 19, 1917, and moved with his family to San Diego when he was nine after his father, who was in the Navy, got assigned there.

“During the Depression, my parents got a divorce and my mother remarried,” Mossy said. “I wasn’t getting along with my stepfather, so I ran away from home and dropped out of school.” He found work on dairy farms and rodeo grounds and fell in love with horses. It is a love affair that has continued on through the whole of his life so far. First an exercise rider, he was a jockey by the time he was 14. Weighing only 107 pounds, he was the right size, but says he was only a mediocre jockey. He mainly rode on the fair circuits. By 1931, Mossy became a trainer, and a pretty good one. He also continued to gallop horses in the morning. And it was during this decade that Mossy became somewhat of a Hollywood personality. He worked as a stunt-double jockey in a number of movies, including the Marx’s brothers’ “Day at the Races,” “Stablemates,” starring Wallace Beery and Mickey Rooney, and “Saratoga,” starring Jean Harlow and Clark Gable. Soon Mossy was in with the “in” crowd. He matter-of-factly rattles off the biggest names in Hollywood when asked to list his friends, although he becomes a little frustrated when a fading memory doesn’t allow him to remember them all. In 1968, a Mossy-trained horse, Proper Proof, won the Derby Trial Stakes and was one of the favorites in that year’s Kentucky Derby. But Proper Proof finished ninth. Mossy struggled to remember that Johnny Sellers was Proper Proof’s jockey. However, there is nothing wrong with Mossy’s memory when he starts talking about his beloved wife Ida, whom he married in 1946. “She was more famous than I was,” Mossy said. “She knew everybody and everybody knew her.” In1975, Mossy and Ida moved to Del Mar. Still a trainer, Mossy also began clocking horses during workouts at San Luis Rey Downs, a job he held until earlier this year. As is the case in everyone’s life, Mossy has experienced some down times and sadness. On June 10, 2000— a day that will live infamy for Mossy— he lost Ida. She died of cardiac arrest and spending nine days in a hospital. “I went into a huge depression,” Mossy said. Two things helped him get out of his

A collection of his poems were recently published in a 92-page paperback. For more information, go onlilne to: http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/mossyspoems/8545871. Mossy and Spike, who have been together for seven years, go everywhere together. Spike and I go on a one-hour walk around the neighborhood every day,” he said, “and on Sundays we do a power walk. We go as fast as I can walk.” Even at 92, there seems to be no slowing down Joseph Lee “Mossy” Mosbacher.

Down on the Farm

What’s New In Suspension Fencing

by HEATHER SMITH THOMAS Suspension fences have been used on western farms and ranches and in New Zealand and Australia for many years. Advantages to suspension fencing include fewer posts (an advantage in rocky terrain, and also less labor for installation and maintenance), more resilience when struck by animals or vehicles and, therefore, less damage to the fence from wildlife or highway accidents. The posts can be set wider apart, with several lightweight stays between them. Animals running into these fences are less apt to be injured because there is so much flex and give; the fence can be pushed several feet without damage to it or the animals, and then rebounds back into place. Southwest Fence Systems and Southwest Fence and Supply Company Inc. in California have been working for several decades to improve suspension fencing. Chris Hanneken, its President, says their unique braces and lightweight stays make their fencing highly durable, thus minimizing maintenance. The Hanneken family developed their first suspension fence products in the 1970’s, originally as a means to create better fencing on their own ranches in the South. Today, their system is used throughout the country, not only on private farms and ranches but also by county and state municipalities, oilfields, the Nature Conservancy, USDOT (US Department of Transportation), EBRPD (East Bay Regional Park District), NRCS (Natural Resource Conservation Service), SFWD (San Francisco Water District), LADWP (Los Angeles Department of Water and Power) and many other entities.

38 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED • JULY 2010

Early suspension fences were constructed using wooden stays, which provided good visibility to livestock and wildlife but were labor intensive and costly to install, partly because of their weight. The Hannekens then tried metal twist stays but those provided poor visibility and were not always easy to install. The twist stays were also easily bent by wildlife hitting the fence or going under or over it, leaving the stays permanently bent—compromising the height or positioning of the wires. Metal stays are almost impossible to remove once they are bent; it usually takes bolt cutters to remove them when you need to replace them. More than 20 years ago the Hanneken family developed their ©SuperStay in an extruded HDPE (high density polyethylene) form, and this enabled the company to provide a lifetime guarantee. The latest design is similar, but created with an injection mold process, providing a stronger and more consistent profile. Other improvements to this stay include added reinforcement near the attachment lock-pin notches (there’s a lock pin for easy installation which is also effective for an electric fence) and more visibility. Another plus is that this stay is made in the USA from recycled material. The SuperStay is also widely used for rejuvenating old fences and making quick repairs. Posts for the suspension fence can be metal or wood, set anywhere from 16 feet apart from center to center to 50 feet (30 feet is the average distance). “This allows the fence to give and flex without compromise. Along a highway, cars often go through a fence. We have constant problems in highly populated areas where commuters travel county roads, with vehicles going through fences,” says Hanneken. It’s important that a rancher use fencing that won’t be torn down completely—or livestock may get out on the highway and be injured or cause accidents. Traditional fences usually won’t stay standing enough to hold livestock after a vehicle crashes through them—taking out posts and knocking the fence down. “We’ve found that cars can hit our suspension style fence and often the fence will stay up enough to contain the animals until repairs can be made. Even if they knock out a post and there’s an 80-foot section of unsupported fence, the wires generally will not break, and the fence will still be in place, and will still hold cattle or horses,” says Hanneken. Weather can be hard on fences. Heavy snow may weigh down traditional or electric fencing and break its wires, or even push a fence over. Freezing and thawing can disrupt the stability of traditional posts and braces, as frost heaves the posts upward. After a few years, the posts and braces may not stay in line or may come out of the ground. Con-

crete or railroad ties rarely stay in place in an area where frost or moisture levels rise and fall during the year. “The bracing system for our fences was designed to withstand freezing and thawing. Our braces utilize a diagonal rod similar to the anchor system on modular homes. This is where we got the idea. No suspension system can be successful without a good brace. We needed something simple, that anyone could put in,” says Hanneken. His family developed a permanent type of driven brace, which is quick and foolproof to install, without having to dig post holes. In good ground, it can be put in place within 15 minutes and installs one way only—which eliminates the chance of placing it incorrectly. The fence can be stretched as soon as the brace is installed. “The two brace posts are driven into the ground, and there’s a guide tube on each post that is cut and welded into that post at a 45-degree angle,” says Henneken. “After you’ve driven the post into the ground to the depth of the guide tube, you put the anchor rod through the post (via the guide tube), drive it into the ground and bolt it in place. In updating our patent, we have lengthened the brace (to eliminate the uplift effect) and this angled rod gives it even more stability,” he says. The Parker Ranch in Kamuela, Hawaii, installed the Southwest Fence suspension system 23 years ago, in 1987, and this fence has remained effective with virtually no maintenance. The stays in a suspension fence can be any material, but if the stays come clear down to the ground it is not truly a suspension fence. “Our black poly SuperStays are light and only come down to the bottom wire, so the fence is floating free between posts,” says Hanneken. This makes a better suspension system because it has a lot more give if an animal or car hits it. The stays manufactured by Southwest Fence Systems are lightweight and durable. This product can also be used with multi-strand smooth electric fencing. “Horse ranches find this very safe and effective. The first stays we made were steel, but they weren’t resilient enough and would bend. We’ve now had poly stays in 40-foot wire gates that have probably been run over by trucks thousands of times when the gates were laid down, and they are still performing. You can’t do that with metal stays,” he explains. The purpose of a suspension fence is to be flexible and resilient. “It won’t be successful, however, without a good brace. So we came up with a bracing system that would be part of the fence,” explains Hanneken. “There’s no way this type of brace will fail, unless you don’t drive the posts deep enough,” he says. Buddy Simmons, the Executive Vice President of Southwest Fence and Supply Company, says the SuperStay today is greatly improved over the previous versions. “One big plus is greater visibility. This is a tremendous deterrent for animals; if they can see the fence they are less apt to crash through it. They can see this stay a lot better than they can see a twisted wire stay,” he says.

www.ctba.com

Almost any type of gate will work with the braces. Hanneken designed a latch system for a wire gate that can keep a wire gate taut. The gate does not get saggy or become hard to open and close. “The new technology in wire—and improvements in tensile strength and durability—makes it to where traditional bracing with wood posts may be inadequate,” says Simmons. “We did years of research with our brace, and field-testing. This brace is stronger than the new wire technology, so these braces will always hold. If you’re using the new high tensile 14-gauge green wire (much higher strength than the old, softer, high-carbon wire), this brace exceeds the test for pulling that wire. This is so important, for the foundation of your fence,” he explains. “Most brace systems are not engineered; they are just a type of brace that people have been using for years and years and they don’t realize the wire technology has passed up the strength of the brace,” he says. Their suspension fence is engineered for a brace every quarter of a mile, and line posts approximately every 40 feet. By contrast, traditional fencing requires posts every eight to 12 feet if there are no stays. “A suspension fence can work with posts every 16 to 50 feet, using stays in between,” says Hanneken.

The Cal-Bred Incentive Program

California-Bred Incentive Awards

Questions and answers concerning California-breds and California’s lucrative incentive awards program, which was responsible for breeders, owners and stallion owners collecting over $11.5 million for 2009. Who qualifies for the awards? The breeders and owners of registered California-bred Thoroughbreds and the owners of California-based stallions. What are Breeders Awards? A monetary award which is paid to the breeder of a registered California-bred Thoroughbred finishing first, second or third in any race run in California and any graded stakes races conducted within the United States. Breeders will receive 75 percent of the remainder of the total incentive award monies after owner awards are paid, with an individual breeder receiving a pro-rated share of this breeders fund. The maximum purse considered earned in any qualifying race within this state shall be $330,000 for a win, $120,000 for a second and $90,000 for a third-place finish. Breeder awards always are paid exclusive of nomination, entry and starting fees. What are Owners Awards? A monetary award which is paid to the owner of a registered California-bred Thoroughbred horse which runs in qualifying races in California. Owners can receive at least a 20 percent bonus on the finisher’s share for finishing first through fifth in an open allowance or overnight stake race and up to a 20 percent bonus for finishing first in an open starter allowance above $15,000 and open non-maiden claiming races with a claiming price of $40,000 or greater in Southern California and $20,000 or greater in Northern California. These levels are purposely set high to encourage the ownership of high-quality runners and to restrict the number of qualifiers so that the awards will function as a major incentive. Owner awards always are paid exclusive of nomination, entry and starting fees. They are listed in the racing program and will be distributed at the same time as the purse by the paymaster. What is the Maiden Bonus Program? A Maiden Bonus award will be paid to the owner of a registered California-bred or registered California-sired foal for winning a maiden special weight race. The bonus amount is $10,000 in Northern California and $20,000 in Southern California. These awards are paid directly to the owner approximately 30 days after the win. What are Stallion Awards? In order to stimulate the acquisition in California of nationally prominent stallions, and retain high caliber California stallions, monetary awards are paid annually to the owners of registered California stallions whose California-conceived or Californiabred get have won a qualifying race or have finished first, second, or third in a stakes race in the state or any graded stakes race within the United States during the year. Qualifying races are any non-claiming races, including maiden allowance and starter allowance races, with a purse of at least $15,000, and open non-

maiden claiming races with a claiming price of $40,000 or greater in Southern California and $20,000 or greater in Northern California also qualify. Stallion awards are exclusive of nomination, entry and starting fees. Stallions must be registered by February 15 each year to be eligible for stallion awards. Stallion owners will receive 25 percent of the remainder of the total incentive award monies after owners awards are paid, with an individual owner of a registered California stallion (as of December 31) receiving a prorated share of the stallion fund based on the total qualifying earnings of the get during the year. The maximum purse considered earned in any qualifying race within this state shall be $330,000 for a win, $120,000 for a second and $90,000 for a third-place finish. The stallion must be continuously present in California from February 1 to July 15, inclusive, of the calendar year in which the qualifying race was conducted, and if the sire left California after July 15 of the calendar year in which the qualifying race was conducted, the sire returned to and was present in California by February 1 of the following calendar year and thereafter remained until July 15 of that year. The California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA) will help compile data, but it is the ultimate responsibility of the stallion owner to advise that official registering agency, on or before February 15 of any year, of any and all purses earned during the preceding year that shall be considered in determining the amount of the stallion award to which the owner is entitled. Does the program include races outside of California? Yes. The breeder of a California-bred Thoroughbred finishing first, second or third in a graded stakes outside of California, but within the United States, will be paid a pro-rated share of the breeders fund. The maximum purse considered earned in any race shall be $165,000 for a win, $60,000 for second and $45,000 for a third-place finish. CTBA will help compile data, but it is the ultimate responsibility of the breeder to advise the official registering agency (CTBA), on or before February 15 of any year, of any and all purses earned during the preceding year in graded stakes races outside of this state by horses bred by the breeder. Also, the owner of a registered California stallion whose California-conceived or California-bred get finished first, second or third in a graded stakes outside of California, but within the United States, will be paid a pro-rated share of the Stallion fund with the maximum purse considered earned the same as the breeders above. When are the premiums paid? Owner awards are paid at the same time as the purse by the paymaster. Breeder awards are paid twice a year with a conservative advance payment of 10 percent being paid by September 1 and the final payment for 2010 being paid by March 31, 2011. The stallion awards are paid prior to March 31, 2011. Continued on next page

California-Bred Incentive Awards Con’d.

What is the definition of a California-sired horse? A “California-sired horse” is a Thoroughbred that was conceived in California by a registered California Stallion. A California-sired horse is only eligible for entry in races restricted to California-bred or California-sired horses and is not eligible for any breeder or owner awards, except the maiden bonus awards.

Are there special racing opportunities for California-breds? Yes. Racetracks in California are re-quired by law to offer one race per day which is restricted to California-breds. Last year this amounted to 285 additional racing opportunities and over $12 million in additional purses for California-breds. In addition, the California legislature has declared its intent that at least 10 percent of the total stakes purses paid at any race meeting in California be paid on stakes races restricted to registered California-breds. This amounted to over $4.7 million in 2009. Also, in 2010, California Cup XXI will be held at Santa Anita Park during the Oak Tree Racing Association meeting on Saturday, October 30, 2010. Part of the funding for California Cup XXI will come from the incentive award category, the Californiabred Race Fund. Ten percent of the total incentive award monies will be used for this category, with the monies funding the promotion of California-bred races, the supplement of purses for California-bred races and the creation of new California-bred stakes.

How does one register a California-bred? Registration applications must be filed with the CTBA. Only those horses which are both registered with The Jockey Club and fulfill all requirements as outlined in the definition of a California-bred are eligible. The fees for registration are as follows: 1.) $100.00 for CTBA members, $125.00 for non-members if applied for by September 30 of foal’s yearling year; 2.) $125.00 for CTBA members, $150.00 for nonmembers if applied for after September 30 of yearling year butbefore January 1 following; and 3.) $750.00 if applied for after January 1 of two-year-old year. If desired, application can be made in advance of receipt of Jockey Club Certificates to escape penalty for late filing, but no actual registration will be made until certificates are available. CTBA has representation at California tracks to help facilitate late registrations.

What is the definition of a California-bred? The definition of a California-bred is as follows: A California-bred Thoroughbred is a horse dropped in California after being conceived in California, or any Thoroughbred foal dropped by a mare in California if the mare remains in California to be next bred to a Thoroughbred stallion standing in the state. If the mare cannot be bred for two successive seasons, but remains in California during that period, her foal will be considered a California-bred.

These statistics are for active California-based sires with a minimum of 50 foals of racing age, ranked here by lifetime Average Earnings Index (AEI). The statistics contained in these rankings are compiled by The Jockey Club Information Systems Inc. (TJCIS). While every effort is made to prevent errors and omissions, California Thoroughbred cannot guarantee their complete and total accuracy. A dagger (†) indicates that a stallion has been pensioned, an asterisk ( * ) that he has died, a dot (•) that he is now standing elsewhere, a number sign (#) that he did not stand in California in 2009 but is standing in the state in 2010, a double dagger (‡) that he is not standing in California in 2010 but will stand in the state in 2011 and in bold that he is a freshman sire. In all cases, a sire will remain in the rankings until the year after his last California foals are two-year-olds. Statistics cover racing in North America (U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico), England, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates only. Percentages are based upon number of named foals.
