From the EXECUTIVE CORNER

Cal Cup Offers Much to Celebrate To all CTBA members, Te California Toroughbred Breeders Association is pleased to announce the 26th edition of California Cup to be held at Santa Anita Park in conjunction with the Sunshine Millions on Saturday, Jan. 30. Now in its third year to be merged with Sunshine Millions, this event will again be a showcase of some of the top California-bred and California-sired horses, with large felds and competitive racing. Total purses will exceed $1 million, with a 10-race card featuring the $250,000 Cal Cup Classic presented by City National Bank, the $250,000 Cal Cup Derby, $200,000 Cal Cup Oaks, $150,000 Cal Cup Sprint, $150,000 Sunshine Millions Filly & Mare Turf Sprint, and several overnight races restricted to horses bred/ sired in California. Te annual Cal Cup Party for industry participants and racing enthusiasts will be held again in Santa Anita’s upper-level grandstand. Excellent viewing and a festive atmosphere accompany the spectacular Cal Cup food bufet and generous bar. We thank our partners at Santa Anita, and our loyal sponsors, for all of their support honoring the California breeding industry. We hope to see you there. Sincerely, Doug Burge President California Toroughbred Breeders Association

Dear friends in the California breeding industry, Santa Anita Park is once again proud to welcome and support California-bred Toroughbreds and their owners, trainers, and breeders on Saturday, Jan. 30, for Sunshine Millions/California Cup Day 2016. Te California-bred is the backbone of the California racing industry, and the breeding of California-bred Toroughbreds is a multi-billion dollar industry for the state. Te 25 previous runnings of the California Cup have served as a launch pad for some of the greatest stars of our sport. Two years ago, California Chrome began his dual classic-winning, Horse of the Year season with a win in the California Cup Derby. In 1991, when the event was just a year old, a successful 39-year-old Quarter Horse trainer won three Cal Cup races, including the $250,000 California Cup Classic Handicap with Charmonnier. Ten days later, in large part because of his Cal Cup victories, that trainer announced he would leave Quarter Horses to care exclusively for his 20-horse Toroughbred stable. Twenty-four years, four Kentucky Derbys, and one Triple Crown later, Bob Bafert has lost the cowboy hat, but is still a large presence on Cal Cup Day. On behalf of everyone at Santa Anita, we look forward to hosting you to salute this year’s California-bred stars and welcome those whose light will shine into the future. Sincerely, Joe Morris Sr.VP, West Coast Operations Te Stronach Group

Trevor Denman, who has called races at Santa Anita since 1983, retired from that position, though he will continue to call the races at Del Mar. Denman made the decision in order to have more time to “kick back, relax, and enjoy” life. With the closure of Hollywood Park, Santa Anita took on an extended racing schedule. Tat meant Denman was calling races year-round except for the three short Los Alamitos meetings. He would occasionally take a couple of weeks of, with Frank Mirahmadi subbing for him the past two years. When Denman isn’t calling races, he lives on a farm in Minnesota. He said he wants to enjoy that life as well as do some traveling. “It is time to stop counting dollars and to start counting the stars,” said 63-year-old Denman. A native of Durban, South Africa, Denman is a former jockey and came to Santa Anita for the frst time to call two races in January 1983. When Oak Tree Racing Association announcer Alan Buchdahl moved to Hollywood Park full time, Denman was hired to call the races that fall. He became the full-time Santa Anita announcer for the 1984-85 season. Santa Anita has had just four primary track announcers: Joe Hernandez, Chic Anderson, Dave Johnson, and Denman. “We knew this situation would come one day,” said Keith Brackpool, Santa Anita’s chairman, “but we were selfshly hoping it would be many years down the line. We have had the privilege of listening to the bestof-the-best for 33 years. No one paints the portrait of a race like Trevor Denman.” Mirahmadi and Michael Wrona, who calls races at Golden Gate Fields, are sharing announcing duties for at least the frst part of the 2015-16 season. “We are not going to replace an icon of three decades in less than three weeks, nor are we going to try,” said Joe Morris, Sr. VP West Coast Operations for Te Stronach Group. “Santa Anita will undertake a world-wide search to fnd the next voice of Te Great Race Place for the next generation. In the meantime, we are extremely fortunate to have two exceptional race callers available to us in Michael Wrona, who is a member of Te Stronach Group family through his years at Golden Gate Fields, and Frank Mirahmadi, who has done a great job of subbing for Trevor during the last two seasons. While it is possible that the right candidate ultimately might indeed be Michael or Frank, we owe it to our fans to fnd the perfect person, whomever and wherever they may be.” Several days after Denman announced his retirement, Santa Anita management put out a press release saying that the track was accepting submissions and that several candidates would be invited to audition at Santa Anita throughout the winter and spring.

HISTORY

10 YEARS AGO As 2006 began, California-bred BROTHER DEREK continued his collection of graded victories with a win in the $150,000 San Rafael Stakes at Santa Anita Jan. 14. “We thought two turns was an advantage for us going into the race,” said trainer Dan Hendricks. He was right, as Alex Solis rode Brother Derek to a strong 11⁄2-length victory in the mile race over juvenile national champion and 2005 Breeders’ Cup Bessemer Trust Juvenile Stakes (gr. I) winner Stevie Wonderboy. Mary Caldwell bred Brother Derek, a son of Benchmark—Miss Soft Sell, by Siyah Kalem, and Hendricks trained him for owner Cecil Peacock.

25 YEARS AGO

California-bred VARIETY ROAD at age 8 won the $100,000 William P. Kyne Handicap (gr. III) at Bay Meadows Jan. 12, 1991. It was his second consecutive victory in the Kyne. Owner-breeder Kjell H. Qvale was standing Variety Road

at stud during the breeding season and returning him to the races in between. At the time Variety Road won the 1991 Kyne, his frst foals were yearlings. Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, the son of Kennedy Road—Variety Queen, by Macarthur Park, ran second to last in the early going of the 11⁄8-mile stakes and closed while racing four wide to defeat Coax Me Clyde by a length in 1:47.30 with Ron Hansen aboard.

50 YEARS AGO The great California sire KHALED continued to see his offspring do well at the track, with sons running one-two in the San Pasqual Handicap at Santa Anita Jan. 21, 1966. New Policy and Free Copy, both by Khaled, battled in the stretch of the 11⁄16-mile San Pasqual, with New Policy, ridden by Milo Valenzuela, emerging the winner by 11⁄4 lengths and stopping the clock in 1:413⁄5. Johnny Adams trained New Policy for owner Ralph Lowe. Mr. and Mrs. L.A. Boice bred New Policy, a 1957 colt out of the Fair Trial mare Feu Follett.

NewsBits MORE AWARDS FOR AMERICAN PHAROAH

Memoriam

Shared Belief, the champion 2-year-old male of 2013, died Dec. 3 after an acute and severe onset of colic that morning. He had been training at Golden Gate Fields for a return to racing. Rushed to the University of California at Davis, the gelding underwent surgery after tests, but veterinarians were unable to save him. Martin and Pam Wygod bred Shared Belief, a 2011 son of Candy Ride—Common Hope, by Storm Cat, in Kentucky. He began racing for them, and Alex Solis II and Jason Litt later bought the gelding privately. Jerry Hollendorfer, who owned a small interest in Shared Belief, trained him for the partnership of Jim and Janet Rome’s Jungle Racing, Kevin Nish’s KMN Racing, George Todaro, Solis, and Litt. Shared Belief won 10 of 12 starts and earned $2,932,200. Eight of those victories came in graded stakes, including the 2015 Santa Anita Handicap; 2014 TVG Pacifc Classic (gr. I), Awesome Again Stakes (gr. I), and Malibu Stakes (gr. I); and 2013 CashCall Futurity (gr. I). He suffered a non-displaced hip fracture in the Charles Town Classic (gr. II) last April. After a lengthy rest and rehabilitation program, Shared Belief had returned to Hollendorfer’s barn. Solis reported that the gelding had trained well the morning of Dec. 3 and later showed signs of colic. “Today we have suffered a devastating loss,” Jim Rome wrote on his Facebook page. “He was a champion, a fghter, and an unbelievable talent who impacted and changed all our lives. He loved to compete and run.”

Triple Crown winner American Pharoah continues to receive accolades. He has been named the recipient of the 2015 Secretariat Vox Populi Award, and the entire team behind the colt earned the Big Sport of Turfdom Award. Penny Chenery, who raced 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat, conceived the Vox Populi Award in 2010 to honor “the horse whose popularity and racing excellence best resounded with the American public and gained recognition for Thoroughbred racing.” The 2015 trophy is scheduled to be presented to the American Pharoah team Jan. 9 at Santa Anita. The day will include a Vox Populi poster give-away and autograph signing. In December at the Global Symposium on Racing and Gaming in Tucson, Ariz., the American Pharoah team received the Big Sport of Turfdom Award. The Turf Publicists of America annually present it to recognize a person or group of people who enhanced coverage of Thoroughbred racing through cooperation with media and racing publicists. Trainer Bob Baffert accepted the Big Sport of Turfdom for the entire team. Owner Ahmed Zayat, racing manager Justin Zayat, and jockey Victor Espinoza were unable to attend because they were out of the country. SKIP DICKSTEIN

Hall of Fame

The Class of 2016 DAVE McGLOTHLIN

H

arris Farms has been a major force in California racing and breeding for decades, in large part due to owner John Harris and farm manager Dave McGlothlin. John Harris is already a member of the California Hall of Fame, and now McGlothlin joins him. “It was a real surprise, and I am very honored,” said McGlothlin. “Tis is a culmination of everybody’s input. Everybody’s got a hand in it.” McGlothlin came to Harris Farms in 1981. “Dave has been a tremendous asset to Harris Farms,” said John Harris. “He combines a strong equine science background and a good way with people.” A Seattle native who grew up in Colorado, McGlothlin worked with show horses in his 20s and earned a bachelor of science degree and a masters of science in reproductive physiology from Colorado State University. He managed a stallion farm in Idaho before joining the Harris team as manager of the horse division. Harris Farms was frst and foremost a large cattle operation, but the horse division has grown from 140 acres when McGlothlin frst arrived to 320 acres today, with the River Ranch and Annex bringing it to about 450 acres. Two national Horses of the Year have been raised at Harris—Tiznow and California Chrome—as well as a litany of stakes winners. Every year the farm is among the leaders on the list of California breeders. Many of California’s leading sires have stood at Harris throughout the years. Te roster today includes Unusual Heat, Lucky Pulpit, Smiling Tiger, Heatseeker, Clubhouse Ride, Desert Code, Tizbud, and Lakerville. “Since I handle the stallions in the breeding shed, I’ve gotten quite attached to quite a few of them over the years,” said McGlothlin. “Certainly Moscow Ballet is one of my favorites, and Lucky Pulpit and Unusual Heat are right up there.” During these years McGlothlin and his wife, Sandy, have also raised a daughter, Lacy, and a son, Christopher. Central California has become their home, and McGlothlin knew he wanted to work for a frst-class operation like Harris from the moment he interviewed for the position.

CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED

Longtime farm manager Dave McGlothlin has been a fxture at Harris Farms since 1981.

McGlothlin’s job involves plenty of hands-on work as well as managing the employees. He does both well, as demonstrated by the fact that many people at Harris have been there a long time. Per Antonsen, the farm’s trainer, arrived about six months after McGlothlin while stallion manager Raul Rosas has been there since 1983. Dr. Jeanne Bowers-Lepore has been working with Harris since 1992 and was hired as the resident veterinarian in 1997. Everyone pitches in to help raise the horses. “When people ask about Chrome, I say that all of us have fngerprints on him,” said McGlothlin. Te horse division had only two barns when McGlothlin started. As McGlothlin has wanted to expand, Harris has eagerly embraced it.

❙ January 2016 ❙ www.ctba.com

“He’s always been so forward-thinking and willing to try things,” said McGlothlin. “We were constantly in a state of construction, and it was fun. Our goal is to get the Kentucky Derby winner for him.” McGlothlin and Harris believe in raising horses in large pastures so that they have room to grow and develop. McGlothlin recalls one particularly lucky pasture in which they raised Tiznow and Ceeband, a graded stakes winner and earner of $636,265, the same year. Tiznow was always a big horse. McGlothlin tells the story of how the four colts in that pasture played so hard that McGlothlin was afraid they might inadvertently hurt each other and he had to separate them. “It’s nice to have a one-two combination of Tiznow to California

JIM AND PAT THOMPSON

R

28

idgeley Farm has been a staple of the California breeding industry for more than 50 years. As a testament to its longevity and impact, owners Pat Tompson and her late husband Jim are being inducted into the California Toroughbred Breeders Association Hall of Fame.

Jim and Pat Thompson’s Ridgeley Farm has been an integral part of the California breeding landscape for more than 50 years

Te Tompsons didn’t set out to build a stud farm empire. Jim was running a riding school in Virginia, and Pat had been working with show horses in Los Angeles before graduating from the University of Southern California as a business major. Tey met and were married in 1958, and just four years later, they purchased 40 acres in Hemet to open their Ridgeley Farm. Pat’s mother and father, Neil and Conny Curry, were also involved in the purchase and management of the farm. Neil carried lofty credentials as chairman of the California Horse Racing Board and president of the National Association of State Racing Ofcials before his untimely death in 1965. “My mother moved down here two years after my father passed, and my brother got involved, too,” Pat Tompson said. “With everything we did, family was always involved.” Although the farm was meant to be a private venture, that all changed with the acquisition of their frst stallions: frst the Nasrullah son Nagea, and then the Bold Ruler colt Neke. “After that we had Mr. Consistency, Pia Star, Tudor Prince, and Distant Land,” Pat

recalled. “We added 20 more acres and expanded to 60 total. We didn’t want to get bigger than that.” Jim specialized in the handling of the studs and managing the breeding. “He was exceptionally good with studs; there was no question about it,” said Pat, who deals best with the foaling on the farm and estimates that she has foaled out around 2,000 mares. “I’ve been involved in all the foals born on this ranch except maybe 10.” A steady host of loyal clients and dedicated veterinarians helps make Ridgeley Farm a special place. “I’ve had the same clients for 20, 25, or 30 years,” Tompson said. “Tat’s very fortunate. And we’ve had the same veterinarians around since the day we opened; only four in the whole time we’ve been here. It’s really part of the success we’ve been lucky enough to have that we don’t change much.” Te Tompsons have been represented by some of the state’s standout stallions and runners over the years. Chilean champion Memo stood at the farm for 14 years and produced standouts such as

CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED

❙ January 2016 ❙ www.ctba.com

millionaires McCann’s Mojave and Grey Memo, a homebred for the Tompsons. “He took us all the way to Dubai,” Tompson said of Grey Memo, who earned $1,736,683 with eight wins in 54 starts, one of which was the Godolphin Mile (UAE-II) at Nad Al Sheba in 2002. “He’ll always have a home here.” Grey Memo is still standing at Ridgeley Farm alongside Informed, who had three winners from six starters through the middle of December, and new stallion He Be Fire N Ice. Ridgeley’s success has been regularly recognized. It was named the Toroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (TOBA) California Breeder of the Year and the TOBA National Small Breeder of the Year in 2002. Teir horses are so well cared for that Tompson had a mare live to be 37. Although racetrack wins are plenty to drive the Ridgeley Farm business, for Tompson, part of the thrill has been the human aspect of the game. “I’ve always thought this is the one business where you meet people from all


Hall of Fame walks of life that you never would, otherwise,” she said. “We helped B. Wayne Hughes when he started out with horses worth $800, and we boarded horses for Jerry Moss. Where would I run into people like that if not for this business? Most people aren’t lucky to have a job they love like I do. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.” —Emily Shields

FRAN’S VALENTINE

B

eing the frst—and still the only—California-bred to win the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) would by itself be enough to qualify Fran’s Valentine for inclusion into the California Hall of Fame. But she accomplished so much more.

T & T ABAHAZY

Earl Scheib bred Fran’s Valentine in 1982 and gave her a very special name, after his late wife, Fran. Joe Manzi trained

the daughter of Saros—Iza Valentine, by Bicker, and it didn’t take long for the flly to develop into something very special. She broke her maiden in her second start and then scored in back-to-back stakes at Pomona within the span of a week. On Wednesday, Sept. 19, 1984, Fran’s Valentine won the Bustles and Bows Stakes. Te following Wednesday, she stepped into the starting gate again, capturing the Black Swan Stakes. Te Breeders’ Cup held its frst running that year, at Hollywood Park. Fran’s Valentine became the frst Cal-bred to fnish frst in a Breeders’ Cup race, defeating Outstandingly by a half-length in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I). However, she swung out sharply in the stretch, impeding fellow Cal-bred Pirate’s Glow, and was disqualifed to 10th. Before the year was out, Fran’s Valentine started three more times, running second in the Hollywood Starlet Stakes (gr. I), unsuccessfully tackling colts in the

Hollywood Futurity (gr. I), and fnishing third in the California Breeders’ Champion Stakes. She was named the year’s champion Cal-bred 2-year-old flly. But at 3 in 1985, Fran’s Valentine upped her game tremendously. She began at Santa Anita, where she triumphed in the Las Virgenes Stakes (gr. III) and Santa Susana Stakes (gr. I), the latter now called the Santa Anita Oaks. Fifth in the Ashland Stakes (gr. II) at Keeneland, Fran’s Valentine headed down the road to Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Oaks. Fellow Cal-bred Rascal Lass took the early lead, with Fran’s Valentine in second. Jockey Pat Valenzuela turned Fran’s Valentine loose in the stretch, and she scampered home in a stakes-record 1:50 for the 11⁄8 miles. Back home in California, Fran’s Valentine added the Princess Stakes (gr. III) and Hollywood Oaks (gr. I), giving her fve wins in her frst six starts at 3. She added a sixth victory at Santa Anita in the Yankee Valor Handicap in between two trips to New York. Tough those forays yielded no wins, she ran second in the historic Alabama Stakes (gr. I) and third in the Gazelle Handicap (gr. I). Snow Chief came along at 2 that season to wrest the Cal-bred Horse of the Year title away from Fran’s Valentine. But she added a second trophy, that of champion Calbred 3-year-old flly. Fran’s Valentine earned two more Calbred championships as best older female with excellent seasons. In 1986, she won the B. Toughtful Handicap, Chula Vista Handicap, and Dulcia Handicap and ran second to Lady’s Secret in the Breeders’ Cup Distaf (gr. I). Lady’s Secret clinched her Horse of the Year title in that race. At 5 in 1987, Fran’s Valentine won the Santa Maria Handicap (gr. II), defeating North Sider, who would win that year’s Eclipse Award as champion older female. Fran’s Valentine retired with 13 wins in 34 starts for earnings of $1,375,465. At the time she was the richest Cal-bred female of all time. Today, she is second only to Moscow Burning and 28th on the all-time Calbred earner list. —Tracy Gantz


Hall of Fame NOSTALGIAÕS STAR

T

Such a horse was Nostalgia’s Star. Because he got better as he aged, he stuck around for fve glorious years. He became the favorite of co-owner Dr. Jack Robbins and took the California-bred banner coast to coast. Racing 30 years ago, Nostalgia’s Star amassed earnings of $2,154,827, still an enviable bankroll, but back then astounding. Only Snow Chief, coming along a year later, put up those kinds of numbers among Cal-breds then. Today Nostalgia’s Star ranks 11th on the list of all-time leading Cal-bred earners, above such younger whippersnappers as Acclamation and Amazombie. John and Betty Mabee bred Nostalgia’s Star, a 1982 son of Nostalgia—Aunt Carol, by Big Spruce. He began racing for them, fnishing second in two stakes at Pomona and capturing the Juaneno Stakes at Los Alamitos, which back then hosted an Orange County fair meeting for a few years. Jack Robbins’ son, trainer Jay Robbins, pointed out to his father that Nostalgia’s Star might be on the market. “So I called John Mabee and asked if he was still for sale,” Robbins told writer Jay Hovdey years later for the Oak Tree Racing Association magazine Paddock. “He was, but the price was up to $75,000. Tat was okay. He won over $2 million and gave us a lot of fun.” Jay Robbins trained Nostalgia’s Star for most of his career for the partnership his father put together. Jack’s wife, Maggie, owned the colt with Mary Jane Hinds and Fred Duckett. At 3 in 1985, Nostalgia’s Star won the El Cajon Stakes at Del Mar and the Al32

Building ftness in juveniles should start before the youngsters make it to the track

oung horses get to the races in many ways, but virtually all of them first have to make it from the farm where they were raised to a trainer based on the track. Some are turned out after being broken in the fall of their yearling season and brought back the next year. Some pass through the sales ring after an in-training sale. And some have never even breezed when they arrive at the track.

Which methods do trainers prefer? Is there a way to ensure both the readiness and soundness of a horse soon after it arrives on the racetrack? What are farms doing to prepare their young stock? Tom Hudson, farm manager at Magali Farms in Santa Ynez, has utilized the farm’s training track to prep its juveniles in the past. 34

“We jog a mile and a half each day to warm up, then gallop 11⁄2 to two miles each day,” he said. “Ten we will progress to breezing an eighth of a mile in about 15 seconds, then twice we’ll do it in 13 or 14 seconds and gallop out threeeighths.” From walking out of the pasture to being ready to van to the racetrack, the process takes 60 to 90 days. “My horses are ready to go three-eighths when they leave here,” said Hudson. Te steady building of ftness starts long before horses make it to the track. “We start them in the round pen on a long line, then put a dummy on their back,” said Hudson. “Ten the riders. We walk and jog the frst couple of days on the track, then mostly jog, then gallop a half-mile, then a full mile. I put a lot of miles on our horses.” Young horses undergoing such a program need a lot of energy. “I feed my horses a lot,” Hudson said. “Tey get a lot of grain on top of their standard alfalfa. Not everyone 36

feeds this much grain, but they need it for their conditioning.” Tommy Town Toroughbreds, also in Santa Ynez, has a similar program. Manager Mike Allen said that within two weeks of being broken to a rider in the round pen and handled on a longe line, his horses head to the training track before being turned out for the winter. “Tey are in training about 45 days before being turned out,” he said. “So when we bring them back, they jog for two weeks before they start galloping.” After a good six to eight weeks of galloping, the horses are breezed for the frst time. “We do a few sixteenth of a mile squirts down the lane before we even do an eighth of a mile,” Allen said. “Tat way, they understand when you ask that you really want them to go.” With a seven-furlong training track, Allen is able to work his juveniles three-eighths of a mile twice before sending them to the racetrack. If it is later in the year, he will work them a half-mile twice.

Round pen and longe line work is an important step in the early training of all young Thoroughbreds

“We also do a lot of gate work, ponying, and galloping in company,” he said. “We practice loading in the trailer ahead of time so that they get used to all of that.” Mental ftness is nearly as important as the physical ftness. “To me, the ground work is the most important part,” said Manuel Ochoa, manager at Ballena Vista Farm in Ramona. “We don’t get riders on the yearlings until the 10th day of training. We have a round pen that is 55 feet across, and they can start loping together in pairs in there. One day we go left, the next day right, but that’s not until we’re into the second week of training.”

To me, the ground work is the most important part.” — Manuel Ochoa, manager at Ballena Vista Farm

Ochoa doesn’t breeze his horses before they head to the track, but he does do a lot of training at the farm’s starting gate, including galloping out of it. “It also helps with traveling because they are already used to being confned in the starting gate stalls when

Paul and Zillah Reddam have had a hand in both sides of Found Money’s pedigree. Tey bred Chanel My Belle and stand Square Eddie, a stallion who had an exceedingly successful 2015, especially with 2-year-olds. Chanel My Belle, a winning daughter of General Meeting, raced in Zillah Reddam’s name. Doug O’Neill, who trains Found Money, also conditioned the colt’s mother. “She only ran a few times,” recalled O’Neill. “We liked her, but she got hurt and Paul kept her as a broodmare.” Square Eddie and Chanel My Belle produced a Cal-bred colt who did well for himself despite the presence of several other talented 2-year-olds O’Neill had for Reddam. Tose included Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (gr. I) winner Nyquist and Hopeful Stakes (gr. I) winner Ralis, the latter another Square Eddie Cal-bred. Found Money jumped out to a twofor-two record in the spring at Santa Anita, breaking his maiden and winning the Santa Anita Juvenile Stakes. In three starts at Del Mar, he ran second in two stakes, impressing the Reddams and O’Neill so much that they sent him to Louisiana for the $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot Stakes (gr. III).

Found Money was vanned the whole way, and then he and jockey Mario Gutierrez didn’t have the best of trips in the race itself. “It was a big feld, and he got unlucky on the frst turn,” said O’Neill. “To run fourth with the unlucky trip he had was a credit to the horse and to Mario’s perseverance.” O’Neill praised Found Money even more for returning from that race to win the King Glorious three weeks later. “He’s as calm as can be,” said O’Neill. “Only a good-minded horse could van that far and come back in three weeks.” Bettors liked Found Money in the onemile King Glorious, sending him of the even-money favorite in the 10-horse feld.

Te Kretzes began scoring with such horses as graded stakes-placed Westwood Pride, but Black Valentine never reached the races.

After another third and a second, both at Santa Anita on the dirt, she broke her maiden Nov. 5 at Del Mar over a mile on the turf. She switched back to dirt in the onemile Soviet Problem.

Te feld let them get away with moderate fractions of :24.14, :48.28, and 1:12.79. Roo’s Valentine had plenty in reserve to hold of the favorite’s challenge, winning by a halflength in 1:37.75.

Poshky is a 2010 gelded son of Vronsky out of the Bold Badgett mare Pinky’s Posh. Patsy Beruman bred Pinky’s Posh with Bud and Judy Johnston, and she said she named the mare for her friend Chris Gilman, whose nickname is Pinky. Te family goes back to Winning in Style, Poshsky’s third dam. Winning in Style also produced Eclipse Award winner Acclamation, who stands at Old English and whose frst foals are 2-year-olds of 2016. Te Johnstons and the Berumans began racing Poshsky in 2013. Don Warren trained him, and he broke his maiden at Fairplex Park. He won again at Betfair Hollywood Park, and Silver Ranch Stable and Wachtel Stable acquired him in early 2014. Under trainer Peter Miller’s guidance, Poshsky developed into a solid allowance winner. He tackled several graded stakes and fnished third in the July 26 California Dreamin’ Stakes at Del Mar. But he put it all together in his frst trip to Northern California. Te Berkeley attracted a tough feld of seven, every one a stakes winner except for Poshsky. Favored G. G. Ryder, also a Cal-bred, had won two graded stakes at Golden Gate earlier in the year. Another Cal-bred, Pepper Crown, won the 2014 Berkeley, while Silentio and Cal-bred Tamarando were Southern California graded stakes winners. With Russell Baze in the irons, Poshsky came out of the gate well and settled into third early in the 11⁄16-mile Berkeley. Ankeny Hill drew of on the lead around the second turn. Pepper Crown cut the corner on the rail to get to the front at the top of the stretch. Poshsky never gave up, nailing Pepper Crown at the wire by a neck and completing the distance in 1:42.70. Pepper Crown had a half-length on third-place G. G. Ryder. “He jumped out of there and wanted to run, so I just let him run,” said Baze. “If I wanted to take him back, it seemed like he would have settled for me. It just didn’t seem like the wise thing to do, given the circumstances. I think he’s a very versatile horse.” With the Berkeley victory, Poshsky ran his record to six wins in 22 starts for earnings of $313,320.

BLOOD-HORSE LIBRARY

At the end of the day, either term is correct when discussing California-bred Horses of the Year, for they are the best in their feld while protecting and defending the honor of their state in “combat.” What might surprise the casual observer, especially one inclined to disavow anything as parochial as a state-bred champion, is just how good these horses really were in any company, from classics to Breeders’ Cup events. Since the Cal-bred Horse of the Year award was inaugurated in 1973, six of these horses have been Eclipse Award winners as well: Acclamation (2011), Bertrando (1993), and Tiznow (2001) were champion older males; Brown Bess (1989) was champion turf female; Snow Chief (1986), Tiznow (2000), and California Chrome (2014) were champion 3-year-olds. Tiznow and California Chrome were named national Horses of the Year in 2000 and 2014, respectively, in addition to their state-bred honors. But even horses that did not win Eclipse Awards were not only competitive, but also victorious at the very highest level. California Chrome is the most re-

also placed in classics: Best Pal and Cavonnier were second in the Kentucky Derby in 1991 and 1996, respectively; Free House (second in the 1997 Preakness, third in the Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes [gr. I]) and Golden Act (second in the 1979 Preakness and Belmont Stakes, third in the Kentucky Derby) placed in all three classics; and Jaklin Klugman was third in the 1980 Kentucky Derby. Te Golden State Horses of the Year have done even better in the Breeders’ Cup, topped by Tiznow’s yet-tobe-equaled back-to-back wins in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (gr. I) in 2000 and 2001. California Flag won the 2009 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint before it became a graded race, and Dancing in Silks won the main-track Breeders’ Cup Sprint (gr. I) in the same year. Second-place fnishers are Bertrando (second in the 1991 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile [gr.

et Problem (second in the 1994 Breeders’ Cup Sprint, against males). Tat is a remarkable record, made even more astounding considering that a) Budroyale is a full brother to Tiznow, b) California Chrome was placing in his Classic after a long campaign that included winning two-thirds of the Triple Crown, and c) Bertrando and Tiznow both became excellent sires. Still another prime factor in assessing the overall quality of these California champions is the number that won grade I races: 26 of the 33 horses designated as Horse of the Year in the state. Of the remaining seven, six placed in grade I races. Te only horse so designated who did not win or place in a grade I race is California Flag, who would have been a grade I winner had he won his Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint any year after 2009. From a sheer proft-making point of view, 22 of the 33 California Horses of the Year are millionaires. Eight of them (Tiznow and his brother Budroyale, California Chrome, Best Pal, Lava Man, Snow Chief, Bertrando, and Free House) won $2 million or more. Te tail-male (sire lines) of these excellent runners is Nasrullah-heavy (12 horses), as one might expect. But the Fleet Nasrullah branch of the line via Gummo really stands out. Ancient Title, Golden Act, and Flying Paster are all sired by Gummo himself. Cat’s Cradle is by Flying Paster, and Continental Red is by Flying Paster’s son Flying Continental. Fleet Nasrullah was also the broodmare sire of Windy’s Daughter. Seattle Slew also made a signifcant contribution to the Nasrullah legacy in California. California Flag and

Joey Franco are by Seattle Slew’s son Avenue of Flags; California Chrome descends from his son A. P. Indy via Pulpit; and Lava Man was by Seattle Slew’s tough and durable son Slew City Slew. In addition, Budroyale and Tiznow are out of the Seattle Song mare Cee’s Song. It may be even more noteworthy that Bertando and Tiznow made and are still making important contributions to the stud book, both descending from the In Reality sire line via Relaunch. Bertrando was by Breeders’ Cup Classic-winning son Skywalker, and Tiznow is by Cee’s Tizzy, a son of Relaunch. Tat California has done so much to continue this branch of the Man o’ War sire line is just one more stellar aspect of the state’s breeding program. Several other sires’ achievements are signifcant. Windy Sands was the sire of Crystal Water and Eleven Stitches, as well as broodmare sire of Brown Bess and Golden Act. Refected Glory deserves a mention, as he is the sire of Snow Chief and the broodmare sire of King Glorious. Petrone sired two Horses of the Year in Silveyville and Brown Bess. And while Petrone was not the broodmare sire of a Horse of the Year, his son Silveyville sired Acclamation’s dam, Winning in Style, to keep the line in play. Other noteworthy doubles or better include Moscow Ballet, who sired Horses of the Year Soviet Problem and Moscow Burning. Crystal Water was out of a T. V. Lark mare, and Bertrando was out of a mare by T. V. Lark’s son, Bufalo Lark. Free House died young but left behind Mo Chuisle, dam of Points Ofthebench. Finally, Bar Le Duc and My Host, broodmare sires, respectively, of Ancient Title and Eleven Stitches, are full brothers, by Alibhai—Boudoir II, by Mahmoud. Te tail-female (dam line) of these horses is equally impressive, and it also elevated 15 of their dams to California Broodmare of the Year status: Cee’s Song (Budroyale and Tiznow), Chickadee (Brown Bess), First Time Out (Fali Time), Fleet Judy (Windy’s Daughter), Fountain Lake (Free House), Golden Shore (Golden Act), Jewel

of the Night (Evening Jewel), Li’l Ms. Leonard (Lava Man), Love the Chase (California Chrome), Miss Snowfake (Snow Chief ), O’L Clementine (Eleven Stitches), Procne (Flying Paster), Soft Snow (Crystal Water), Ubetshedid (Best Pal), and Winning in Style (Acclamation). Besides the state honor, there are true breed-shapers in the mix. To mention just a few: Papila, dam of champion and major sire Crimson Satan, is also the taproot for Tiznow and Budroyale. Sister Sarah, the same taproot as Nearctic, sire of Northern Dancer, is responsible for Bob Black Jack and Joey Franco (out of full sisters Molly’s Prospector and Susan Powter, respectively). Cavonnier descended from Aspidistra, the dam of Dr. Fager and Great Above (sire of Holy Bull), and to whom Unbridled and his full brother Cahill Road were inbred. Te wonderful Crystal Water was

from Prince John’s family (Herodias), Silveyville from the same line (Plucky Liege) that gave us Lord Gaylord, Brown Bess from the same taproot (Lady Sterling) as Triple Crown winner Sir Barton, and, of course, most recently California Chrome from Betty Derr, who also gave us Swaps and Iron Liege—two of the three being Cal-bred Kentucky Derby winners. (Iron Liege was foaled in Kentucky at Calumet Farm.) Free House descended from Alcibiades, who also gave us Epsom Derby winner and excellent sire Sir Ivor. Golden Act came from the potent sire family of Beadah, which would later account for such a giant as Tapit. Prince Spellbound descended from the E. R. Bradley taproot of Macaroon, which gave us Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Alysheba and the infuential sire Lear Fan. Ancient Title, a gelding, came from the same family, Padua, as super sire Raise a Native. So far as inbreeding is concerned, the

most prominent lines carried more than once by these champions are Nasrullah, Hyperion, Northern Dancer, and Mahmoud. Other frequently found crosses include Alibhai (a son of Hyperion), Bold Ruler (a son of Nasrullah), Blenheim II (sire of Mahmoud), Bull Dog, and Prince Rose. Tree of the champions have sibling inbreeding in the frst fve generations: Brown Bess carries a cross of Nasrullah and his full sister Malindi via Noor and Prince Taj, respectively, Silveyville has Nasrullah and Malindi through Bold Ruler and Prince Taj, and Eleven Stitches has the full brothers Your Host and My Host (Alibhai—Boudoir II). Tus, anyone who talks about “regional breeding” had best give credit where credit is due. Tese were horses bred to run well. Tey lived up to the planning of breeders who chose the matches that created them and won races of the highest caliber nationwide.

A

s the person who answers the phone at Madera Toroughbreds, Juliana “Julie” Diaz is the frst line of contact with clients. However, she is so much more than a secretary, as she does sales prep, owns and cares for her own horses, and is the farm’s farrier, too. “I live this job,” Diaz said. Diaz started out as a Madera Toroughbreds client, boarding her mare at the farm. But when farm owners Cal and Jill Fischer realized they had an opening for a secretary, the job was ofered to Diaz. “Tey approached me one day and asked if I’d like the job,” Diaz recalled. “Of course I said yes.” Her 11- to 12-hour days start with checking the phone messages and mail. Ten she makes sure the horses have been fed and are quiet and comfortable. “I do the emails, monitor the phone, and then in the evening I trim a horse or two before I take care of my own horses,” Diaz said. “Before working here I was just trying to make money to feed my horses, but now all I do is work with horses all day, every day. I do just

about everything aside from veterinary work.” Te Chicago native moved to California at age 11 and started riding of-track Toroughbreds. “I dabbled in jumping, but mostly I just liked taking care of the horses,” she said.”Luckily, I had all that experience before I started working here.” Diaz owns a California-bred Dominated Debut mare named Media Luna, whose frst foal is a yearling by Madera Toroughbreds sire Elusive Warning. Te stakes-winning son of Elusive Quality—Valid Warning, by Valid Appeal, will stand the 2016 season for $2,500. “He doesn’t look like any Toroughbred I’ve ever seen,” Diaz said of Elusive Warning. “I joked at frst that he is a lovely looking Quarter Horse, and asked if he’d won any halter shows. But he also looks like speed, and he’s a sweet stallion. I thought it was important to have a good personality in a horse I want to race.” Tere are 87 horses on the farm, and Diaz must keep tabs on all of their feet and other aspects of their care. “Tey even have me doing sales prep now,” she said. Jill Fischer noted that Diaz is “a

She was everything to us at the Del Mar sale this year, grooming and showing horses. She has picked up a lot of things in the last year and is just a hard-working person.” Diaz likes and admires her bosses, while noting that Cal Fischer loves his horses almost to a fault. “He truly loves them,” she said, “and is such a great boss.” She is also simply glad to be able to put her excess of knowledge to use. “You spend your whole life learning about horses and how to take care of them, gaining practically a veterinary degree of knowledge,” she said. “I love this job, I love who I work for, I love the horses around here and everything about this place.” Luckily for Diaz, the horses and humans behind Madera Toroughbreds love her, too.

SEPTICEMIA

MARGARET MUDGE

IN YOUNG FOALS Bacterial infections can be especially dangerous to foals BY HEATHER SMITH THOMAS

S

epticemia is a systemic disease associated with the presence and persistence of pathogenic bacteria and their toxins in the bloodstream. Tis sometimes occurs when a horse develops a bacterial infection, and it can be especially dangerous in young foals. Te infection can start anywhere in the foal’s body—the intestinal tract, umbilicus, lungs, etc.—and then spread into the bloodstream.

OUNCES OF PREVENTION Dr. Nathan Slovis, director of the McGee Center at the Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Lexington, Ky., says this serious condition is caused by the spread of bacteria throughout the body; the infection is no longer localized. “Bacteremia is the term for bacteria in the blood,” he said. “Septicemia occurs when both the bacteria and their toxins circulate through the body. It is mainly the toxins that do the damage. “Te only way a foal becomes septicemic is when bacteria gain 68

entry into the body, and the most common entry routes in young foals are orally (intestinal tract), respiratory tract (pneumonia), or through the umbilicus. Puncture wounds are another route, but not as common.” Because the intestinal tract and umbilicus are the most common routes, it’s important to have the foal checked by a veterinarian soon after it is born. PRE-NATAL INFECTIONS

“A foal can also become septicemic before birth—in the uterus—if the mare has an infection,” said Slovis. “In the frst day of life, the foal may suddenly develop a septic joint, and the most common way to be exposed to the infection that quickly was before birth. Te way an unborn foal becomes septicemic is via the bloodstream, from the placenta, if the mare has a placentitis. Infection enters the foal’s bloodstream and can travel wherever it wants to go. Tose foals are already sick when they are born. Some of them can be very ill and may even act like dummy foals. “Tey seem worse than a typical dummy foal, however, because they have utilized all their energy stores while they were in

Health somewhere—fghting a battle,” said Slovis. “We look for electrolyte abnormalities and check glucose levels and whether the foal is acidotic. At the same time, we take blood cultures, before we give antibiotics, to determine what kind of bacteria we are dealing with. “We ultrasound the foal’s chest, abdomen, and umbilicus to determine where this infection may be coming from. Ten we make a treatment plan, using our experience in these kinds of infections.”

A clean environment is very important—clean foaling stalls, clean mare, clean hands. Wear gloves when handling foals; wash your hands before handling foals. Don’t let a foal start sucking your clothes.” — Dr. Nathan Slovis

the uterus before birth, trying to fght the infection. Tey are weak and lethargic, with low glucose levels because they’ve already used up their sugars, and they may be dehydrated and have electrolyte imbalances. If you look at them closely after they are born, they may have white blood cells (pus) in their eyes. “Te medical term for this pus in the eyes is hyphema. Tis is what we were seeing with the MRLS (mare reproductive loss syndrome) foals. You can easily see this if you shine a fashlight in the foal’s eye.” If you notice this in a newborn foal, immediate and proper treatment is crucial. Tose foals may have only a 50-50 prognosis for survival, Slovis explained. EFFECTS OF SEPTICEMIA

Once bacteria gain entrance into the body, they may start releasing toxins, depending on the type of bacteria. “Te toxins cause hemodynamic dysfunction, which means that suddenly the foal has low blood pressure and is going into septic shock,” said Slovis. “Blood pressure drops, heart rate increases, and temperature rises. Te foal starts breathing heavily because of the high fever, to try to dissipate heat. Te body starts using a lot of energy for this, and the foal becomes weak.” A young foal does not have energy reserves like an older horse and has very little body fat. “Te sick foal becomes acidotic because he can’t get proper blood fow to organs and muscles. Inadequate blood fow creates lactic acidosis, just like in an athlete who has been running hard. Te foal can’t get enough oxygen to those tissues. It’s similar to the condition a human may encounter after running a marathon and pushing the body to the limit. Te buildup of lactic acid may create weakness and dizziness.” Te sick foal sufers decreased blood fow to organs and muscles, and the in70

crease in lactic acid creates acidosis. “Tis causes weakness and abnormalities in heart rate and intestinal function,” said Slovis. “At the same time, there is poor circulation to the gut, so it shuts down. Te foal doesn’t nurse much. If he tries to nurse, the stomach just flls up because nothing can move on through the shutdown gut. So he quits nursing. “Tese foals become impacted and may sufer damage to the bowel, which causes release of more toxins into the system. Toxins can leak through the damaged gut wall into the bloodstream. Tis creates a snowball efect. Regardless of the original cause of infection, now there is an added efect—more toxins released into the body. Bacterial toxins afect the liver, and eventually the other organs of the body. Tere is multi-organ failure.” DIAGNOSIS

If a veterinarian suspects septicemia, bloodwork may help confrm the diagnosis. “If there is a low white blood cell count, we know those blood cells are going

“Whatever route the bacteria entered, antibiotic treatment is similar—except if it’s a lung infection,” said Slovis. “In that instance, we may give the foal inhaled antibiotics. If the entry route was the umbilicus, we may treat initially with antibiotics. But if it doesn’t respond quickly, we may surgically remove the infected umbilicus. In all cases, we give systemic antibiotics.” Some foals receive plasma because it is high in antibodies. “Tis might help fght the infection,” said Slovis. “We also put them on supportive fuids, feeding via nasogastric tube or I.V., giving nutrients and fuid orally or intravenously, depending on whether the bowel is functional or not. If the bowel is not working, we feed the foal through the vein. Fluids will also help reverse shock. Sometimes we give additional medication to try to help increase blood pressure. It all depends on the individual case.” Antibiotics and supportive care are crucial to recovery. “You just try to keep the body going. But if the infection has a head start and you are behind the eight ball, it may be a losing battle.” Oxygen treatment is one of the newer ways to treat foals. “We have a hyperbaric oxygen chamber here,” said Slovis. “Some bacteria are very susceptible to high concentrations of oxygen. So we put the foal in the chamber and pressurize it, up to three atmospheres, with a very high density of oxygen. Tis literally forces oxygen into the body via the lungs and bloodstream, forcing oxygen to become dissolved in the blood. Many bacteria can’t live in that kind of environment. Tree atmospheres is the highest, and this level can be deadly to bacteria.”

So important are antibodies to a foal’s health that some veterinarians recommend hand-feeding colostrum before the foal ever stands to nurse

Te high-pressure oxygen helps increase white blood cell function. “It’s also been shown that the high oxygen level can penetrate deep into bones, where infections may lurk. We leave the foal in the pressure chamber for 30 minutes to an hour, once a day, for several days—up to 20 treatments.”

PREVENTION

“A clean environment is very important—clean foaling stalls, clean mare, clean hands,” said Slovis. “Wear gloves when handling foals; wash your hands before handling foals. Don’t let a foal start sucking your clothes. Wash the mare’s udder and hindquarters after foaling. Te foal

will go right to her hind end and start sucking everything in his search for the udder. When a mare is foaling, she defecates a great deal; there may be feces all over her hind end. So clean her up, and clean her tail. “Make sure the foal nurses within two hours. Colostrum is very important to give the foal the antibodies he needs to combat common infections. If the mare has been leaking milk beforehand, have a bottle of good colostrum ready.” An emergency supply of frozen colostrum will enable you to give colostrum by bottle within an hour of birth, if necessary, to ensure that the foal gets adequate antibodies. A veterinarian can do a blood test to determine whether or not the foal received enough antibodies or whether his passive immunity should be augmented by other means (such as plasma). Dr. John Madigan of the University of California, Davis, says that colostrum is crucial. About 10 years ago, he started recommending hand-feeding colostrum before the foal gets up.

“Tis advice is based on evidence that foals, during the process of seeking the udder, can acquire bacteria that go into the intestinal tract and cross the open gut,” said Madigan. Te intestinal lining is permeable for a short time, to allow the large molecules of antibodies in colostrum to slip through into the bloodstream and lymph system. But this also enables bacteria to slip through. “On one farm where we experienced a large Salmonella outbreak, we began this process of getting colostrum into foals before they nurse, along with washing the mare and having a clean udder,” said Madigan. “Tere’s a lot of contamination because mares defecate in stage-two labor; there are bacteria on her and on the afterbirth. Once the udder is cleaned up, we milk the mare.” When a foal is born, it’s a race between pathogens and antibodies. Feeding colostrum immediately after the foal is born gets it into the gut ahead of the bacteria. Tis stimulates systemic immunity and gives local coating of the gut, providing antibodies to combat pathogens ingested

These statistics are for active California-based sires with a minimum of 50 foals of racing age, ranked here by their lifetime Average Earnings Index (AEI.) The statistics shown here are compiled by The Jockey Club Information Systems (TJCIS). While every effort is made to prevent errors and omissions, California Thoroughbred cannot guarantee their complete and total accuracy. A dagger (†) indicates a stallion that has been pensioned or has died, a dot (•) that he is now standing elsewhere (sires no longer standing in California remain on these lists until their last Cal-bred crop turns 3 years old), a double dagger (‡) that he is not standing in California in 2015 but will stand in the state in 2016. Freshman sires are highlighted in bold text.. 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 (UAE) only. Stakes winners and wins follow TJCIS stakes rules. Percentages are based upon number of named foals of racing age.
