CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED

VOL. 136 NO. 5


A United Front From the Executive Corner by DOUG BURGE The California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA) has joined with other state horsemen’s groups, racing associations and the racing fairs in the formation of Horse Racing United (HRU). HRU provides a coalition in which the state’s racing interests speak with one unified voice as it pertains to internet gaming legislation. Currently, racing in California has the exclusive legal right to conduct internet wagering (Advanced Deposit Wagering) within the state. Therefore, any new legislation that removes racing’s exclusive rights could severely encroach and harm our multi-billion dollar agribusiness. Senate Bill 1463, which was recently introduced by Senators Steinberg and Wright, allows for the legislation of internet poker in California. While this legislation does include the potential for racing interest participation through obtaining a license to offer poker, the bill also provides for an unlimited number of participants while removing racing’s current exclusivity with internet wagering. Horse racing interests are not opposed to the prospects of internet gaming, if acceptable legislation were reintroduced. However, in its current form, we believe the bill could be extremely detrimental. To the right, we have included a letter of “oppose unless amended” that was recently sent on behalf of the CTBA, Thoroughbred Owners of California (TOC) and California Authority of Racing Fairs (CARF) to the authors of SB 1463. We will keep the membership posted as to the status of this bill as it moves through the legislative process.

On Target With six individual winners of seven graded stakes during Santa Anita Park’s 2011/2012 Winter-Spring meeting that concluded on April 22, California-breds are on target to have an even better campaign than last year, and what a season that was! In 2011, a dozen Cal-breds won 20 graded stakes events, including the Eclipse champions Acclamation and Amazombie who accounted for eight of those victories with five of theirs in grade I company. The latter was one of only four such winners at last year’s corresponding Santa Anita meet, and he successfully defended his title in the Potrero Grande Stakes (grade II) in 2012. However, Willa B Awesome was the standout Cal-bred at the Arcadia track this year, with wins in the Santa Ysabel Stakes (grade III) and Santa Anita Oaks (grade I), while fellow Cal-breds Norvsky, Frumious, Caracortado and California Flag also won graded stakes races at Santa Anita this past season. Besides its stories on Willa B Awesome, Amazombie and California Flag, this May 2012 issue of California Thoroughbred also features a CTBA Member Profile on Jerry and Ann Moss. This famous couple, whose similarly popular Zenyatta continues to amaze, have been supporters of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA) for more than 25 years. There are also advertorial pages spotlighting half a dozen 2012 foals each by Square Eddie at Vessels Stallion Farm and Don’tsellmeshort at Running Luck Ranch, while this year’s Barretts May Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training being held in the Hinds Pavilion at Fairplex in Pomona on Monday, May 14, is previewed. Securing the futures of our Thoroughbreds when they are done racing is always of the utmost importance, so we feature an Industry Insight piece that details the tremendous effort made to place in safe homes all those horses, including a host of Cal-breds, who were a part of HBO’s horse racing television drama series “Luck” which was unexpectedly canceled in mid-March. Racing In Southern California highlights the respective wins by Derby Gold and Warren’s Amber in the inaugural editions of the Echo Eddie and Evening Jewel Stakes—both $100,000 events—at Santa Anita on March 31, as part of the $4.85 million Golden State Series of stakes races for Cal-breds in 2012. Also celebrated this month is Bold Chieftain, who became the 50th Cal-bred millionaire when he won the $196,000 California Cup Classic Handicap on Oct. 3, 2009, during Santa Anita’s Oak Tree Racing Association meeting, while A Blast From The Past features Sagely whose claim to fame is being the Cal-bred with the most career wins ever; he won 51 races, 40 of them at Finger Lakes in New York, at the age of four to 15 from 1974 to 1985. Horse Care examines the use of “Bute” in horses and the CTBA’s Cal-bred Incentive Awards Program, including its 2011 Breeder and Stallion Award recipients, is detailed in this magazine. The latest Guest Forum piece is titled “Effective Deworming,” while the balance of the magazine includes all our other regular columns, features and departments that we hope will also prove to be both enjoyable and helpful. Until next time, may you breed In the Company of. . .Terry Lovingier (right), the breeder and co-owner of Willa B Awesome who won the grade I, the best to the best and not just have $300,000 Santa Anita Oaks at Santa Anita Park on to hope for the best!

Willa B Awesome: A Special Determination

The Grade California-Breds

S T O R Y

by EMILY SHIELDS California-breds. You just can’t count them out. Heading into the grade I, $300,000 Santa Anita Oaks, Willa B Awesome seemed merely an afterthought. Eden’s Moon and grade II winner Reneesgotzip hogged the headlines, poised for a rematch after Eden’s Moon defeated her rival in the grade I, $250,000 Las Virgenes Stakes last out. Toiling well behind them in fourth was Willa B Awesome, who was making her 11th lifetime start in the Las Virgenes. But prior to that disappointing day, Willa B Awesome had emerged victorious in the grade III, $100,000 Santa Ysabel Stakes, the second black-type score of her career. She knew how to win graded stakes just as well as the others and had experience where they lacked. Although bettors dismissed the daughter of Awesome Gambler at 13-1 in the Oaks, Willa B Awesome came through for those who had backed her. She and jockey Martin Pedroza rallied from third to nail Reneesgotzip on the line with Eden’s Moon back in third. After a nerve-wracking wait for the official photo, Willa B Awesome was declared the winner by a nose, having stopped the clock in 1:42.47 for the 1 1/16-mile distance. Willa B Awesome’s win increased her record to four wins, three seconds and two thirds in a dozen starts. Trainer Walther Solis missed receiving his first grade I trophy due to his daughter Maria’s wedding in Guatemala that same day. Owners Phil Daniels, Patsy London, John Winters and Terry Lovingier have to appreciate the sophomore filly’s lofty earnings of $428,896, but for breeder Lovingier, that is not all that matters. “I was there when Willa was foaled, and within 30 minutes I knew she was a nice filly,” Lovingier said. “She grew up in the pasture next to my house. It’s nice to win a grade I, but

it is extra special to raise a grade I winner. That’s by far and away harder to do.” Lovingier also bred and campaigned Willa B Awesome’s dam, Cause I’m Tricky, a winning daughter of Nineeleven. “She had a bit of talent but didn’t have a long career,” he explained. “For a lightly-pedigreed mare, she has been very good to me.” Cause I’m Tricky had already produced the stakes-placed winner Rio Tricky, a son of Rio Verde, and a full sister named Got Tobe Rio, a dual stakes-placed winner. Willa B Awesome is her third foal. She has a juvenile daughter by Rio Verde and a yearling colt by Awesome Gambler. She produced a filly by him this year and it will come as no surprise that she is back in foal to Awesome Gambler, who is now not only Lovingier’s premiere sire at his Lovacres Ranch, but arguably one of the best stallions in the state. “He’s the real deal,” Lovingier said. “As far as California goes, this stallion is magnificent, he looks like a Kentucky stallion. His female family is very good, and he has a ton of good two-year-olds getting ready to run this year.” Awesome Gambler, a stakes-winning son of Coronado’s Quest, was bred to 61 mares in 2011, and will see “between 80 and 90 mares this year,” according to Lovingier. As for Willa B Awesome, she’ll be staying home for the $300,000 Melair Stakes at Betfair Hollywood Park on April 28, rather than travel east for the Kentucky Oaks (grade I) on May 4. “We raced her a lot as a two-year-old,” Lovingier said of the decision. “She’s had a lot of races to get to the point where she’s at now. On top of that, I’m here to breed and run horses in California. She has a following here, so it’s just the right thing to do for her.”

Amazombie: The Perfect Fit

The Grade California-Breds

S T O R Y by EMILY SHIELDS It is a fact that Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith has ridden some of the best horses to ever grace the racetrack, and that he is also one of the best riders of modern times. He has won each of the three grade I Triple Crown races, first in the Preakness Stakes aboard Prairie Bayou, then the Kentucky Derby with Giacomo, and finally the Belmont Stakes on Drosselmeyer. He has won 15 Breeders’ Cup races, tied with Jerry Bailey for the most of any jockey. He has even won a European classic by taking the 1991 Irish 2000 Guineas (group I) aboard Fourstars Allstar. He ranks ninth on the list of all-time leading money earners with over $225 million in purses earned. In addition to being the regular pilot for 2010 Horse of the Year Zenyatta, Smith, a two-time Eclipse Award winner, has scored major victories on Azeri, Heavenly Prize, Holy Bull, Inside Information, Lure, Skip Away, Sky Beauty, Stardom Bound and Unbridled’s Song. Smith’s 5,000th career victory came at Santa Anita Park on April 7, aboard California-bred Amazombie, a horse truly worthy of mention in that list of Smith’s best mounts. Under the rider’s expert handling, Amazombie, the Eclipse Awardwinning sprinter of 2011, successfully defended his title in the grade II, $150,000 Potrero Grande Stakes. The pair, sent off at 6-5, sat just off the pace set by Roman Threat before surging past that rival in late stretch to score by three quarters of a length. Amazombie completed the 6 1/2-furlong main dirt track contest in 1:14.16. Smith returned Amazombie to the winner’s circle while pumping his fist and kissing his horse to the delight of the large Santa Anita Derby-day crowd of 33,166. “I’m really

just beside myself right now,” Smith said after the race. “For it to happen on Amazombie is so fitting. Who could have drawn it up any better? I’m just really happy that I finally got to 5,000.” Smith is the 25th jockey to reach that lofty benchmark. Trainer Bill Spawr, who owns Amazombie along with Tom Sanford, was equally pleased and relieved by the effort. Amazombie was coming off a disappointing loss in the grade II, $200,000 San Carlos Stakes on Feb. 25, where he finished third behind The Factor and Sway Away. Although Spawr thinks Amazombie is bigger and stronger this year than he was last year, when he won five of nine starts including the $1,363,500 Breeders’ Cup Sprint (grade I), he was too heavy to compete successfully in the San Carlos. “I think now he’s at racing weight, what is should be,” Spawr said. Amazombie, a six-year-old gelded son of Northern Afleet, increased his earnings to $1,639,708 with the victory. He now has 11 wins, four seconds and six thirds in 25 starts. Amazombie, who was bred by Gregg Anderson, is out of the winning In Excess (Ire) mare Wilshe Amaze. Originally, it appeared that Amazombie’s 2012 campaign was going to mimic last year’s schedule with a defense of his title in the $125,000 Tiznow Stakes at Hollywood Park on April 28. However, Spawr then announced that his charge’s next start would be in the grade II, $400,000 Churchill Downs Stakes during the Kentucky Derby undercard on Saturday, May 5. Besides the higher purse, the decision was also based on the fact that Amazombie won last year’s Breeders’ Cup Sprint (grade I) on that Louisville track’s dirt surface.

California Flag: The King Of The Hill

The Grade California-Breds

by RUDI GROOTHEDDE It’s official, California Flag is “The King Of The Hill.” Just like dual graded stakes winner Cambiocorsa was crowned “The Queen Of The Hill,” courtesy of eight consecutive wins on the downhill turf course at Santa Anita Park from April of 2005 to April of 2006, her younger brother has now dominated this unique configuration since September of 2008, with five such victories of his own. California Flag’s quintet of triumphs at this about 6 1/2furlong trip include: the 2008 and 2009 editions of the Morvich Handicap (grade III), the $909,000 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint in 2009, the 2011 renewal of the grade III Morvich Stakes, and now this year’s April 21 running of the San Simeon Handicap (grade III). Reunited with jockey Joe Talamo, who rode the Californiabred gelding to the first three of these wins but hadn’t been aboard the grey since his last-placed finish in the Woodford Stakes at Keeneland in October of 2010, the eight-year-old son of Avenue of Flags scored his latest career triumph in typical gate-to-wire fashion. After posting fractions of :21.89, :43.25 and 1:05.52, California Flag’s final time of 1:11.59 in the $100,000 event was enough to hold off the race’s 26-1 longshot Sayif (Ire) by 2 1/4 lengths. Cal-bred Compari, the seven-strong field’s 9-5 favorite primarily based on his wins in the 2010 and 2012 runnings of the Sensational Star Handicap on the same course and distance, finished a further half-length back in third. “It was nice to see him back,” said trainer Brian Koriner of his first winner of the San Simeon. “I love the horse, and when I was being interviewed a couple of days ago, I predicted that he would win this race. I thought the horse would win because he’s doing really good and is super sound. The horse just loves what he’s doing.”

California Flag also became the ninth Cal-bred winner of this race in its 45 editions to date, following Poona Khan (1968), Single Agent (1972), Soft Victory (1973), Century’s Envoy (1975), Maheras (1978), Caballo de Oro (1988), Shadow of Illinois (2005) and Bonfante (2007). Bred by the Hi Card Ranch of Keith Card, a Past President of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA) who passed away on March 8, 2011, California Flag is now owned by his wife Barbara in partnership with Jim Atwell’s E-Racing.com, John Fradkin and Kevin Jacobsen. He is the seventh of 13 foals out of the Afleet mare Ultrafleet, the 2008/2009 California Broodmare of the Year who is also the dam of the multiple stakes-placed, 10-time winner Shadow Raider. Cambiocorsa’s own broodmare career is also proving to be a success with her first couple of foals of racing age being the four-year-old Ghostzapper filly Schiaparelli, who remained unbeaten in two starts following her downhill win at Santa Anita on April 22, and Vionnet, a 2009 daughter of Street Sense whose 2012 record includes a win and a stakes placing on the same grass strip. California Flag’s overall record now stands at 11 wins, two thirds and $1,288,825 in earnings from 26 starts, and he is also a black-type winner at Hollywood Park and the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. After his win in the former’s grade III, $150,000 Hollywood Turf Express Handicap on Nov. 29, 2008, California Flag then won the latter’s $100,000-plus Green Flash Handicap both in 2009—the year that he shared the California Horse of the Year title with Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner Dancing in Silks—and 2010. So with this year’s Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint being contested on Santa Anita’s downhill turf course, California Flag is now a serious contender for a repeat win in the grade I, $1,000,000 event on Nov. 3.

Jerry & Ann Moss: A Loyal, Dedicated Duo

by EMILY SHIELDS win the grade I Kentucky Oaks the following season. From there, the stakes wins started to come quickly. Brulay won the 1998 Railbird Stakes (grade II), A La Reine won the grade III Senator Ken Maddy Handicap in 2001, and Kudos took both the 2002 Oaklawn Handicap (grade I) and 2003 Californian Stakes (grade II). It wasn’t until 2005, that the Mosses first stole the industry spotlight when their homebred Giacomo, a son of Holy Bull out of their four-time stakes-winning mare Set Them Free, won the grade I Kentucky Derby at staggering odds of 50-1. Trainer John Shirreffs had always believed in the honest gray colt, who after breaking his maiden by 10 solid lengths in 2004, went on to complete the season by finishing second in the grade I Hollywood Futurity. Although he did not win any of his prep races as a three-year-old, the son of Holy Bull placed in both the grade II San Felipe Stakes and the Sham Stakes before running fourth in the grade I Santa Anita Derby. That performance earned him a spot in the Derby, which he won in dramatic come-from-behind fashion, rallying from 18th for the surprise score. Giacomo finished third in the Preakness, but suffered a setback in the Belmont, which ended his sophomore season. He won the grade II, $300,000 San Diego Handicap at four before concluding his career by finishing fourth in the grade 1, $4,580,000 Breeders’ Cup Classic. With a record of three wins, two seconds and five thirds and earnings of $2,537,316, Giacomo was retired to Adena Springs in Paris, Kentucky. He stood there for five seasons before making the transition to Magali Farms in Santa Ynez, California, where he now stands for $5,000.

In just the last few years, Jerry and Ann Moss have inadvertently become the most recognizable owners in horse racing. While the compelling duo, partners in life and in the horse industry, are most recently known for the campaign of their champion mare Zenyatta, they have been pillars of the California racing industry for decades. Last year, the Mosses celebrated their 25th anniversary as members of the California Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (CTBA). Already renowned in the music industry as the co-founder with Herb Alpert of A&M Records, Jerry Moss bought into his first Thoroughbred in 1970. Although his first stakes victory only came in 1981, at Santa Anita Park with Lovely Robbery in the Santa Ysabel Stakes, it wasn’t until after marrying Ann in 1984 that their success in the sport took off. In 1990, their Ruhlmann won the grade I Santa Anita Handicap, one of seven graded stakes victories on his resumé. The dark bay son of Mr. Leader retired to stand in California from 1991 until 1995, and thanks primarily to the success of the classy filly Top Ruhl, Ruhlmann became the leading freshman sire in the state during 1994. “Ruhlmann was a wonderful racehorse,” Jerry Moss said. “He had to be one of the best we’ve ever had. His victory in the 1990 Santa Anita Handicap gave us one of our biggest thrills in racing. As a sire standing in California, he put his ‘stamp’ on quite a few nice horses, but he never quite produced any one as good as he was.” Their next major runners were Altazarr, who won the grade II Hollywood Juvenile Championship in 1992, and Sardula; the daughter of Storm Cat finished second in the 1993 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (grade I) but went on to

Jerry and Ann Moss with Giacomo’s 2005 Kentucky Derby trophy at Churchill Downs and the incomparable Zenyatta at Hollywood Park in 2010.

Zenyatta produced her first foal, a colt by Bernardini, and has been bred back to Tapit for 2013. In 2004, before the heroics of Giacomo and Zenyatta, Moss was appointed to be a commissioner on the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB). “I feel very proud to have served for two terms with the CHRB,” he said. “I always believed that if ever I had the chance to be in a position to help our industry, I would, and that's what I tried to do. There is no doubt that protecting the integrity of our sport along with the lives of our horses and jockeys has to continue to be our number one priority. I also believe that every commissioner I served with felt the same way.” Racing in California has always been a priority for the Mosses, and aside from their Oaks and Derby victories, their biggest wins have come here. They have also had success as breeders in the Golden State. Although most of their mares are located in Kentucky, they have been responsible for some winning California-breds. “In retrospect I'd have to say that this amazing place has been real good to me, especially with the racing situation here,” Moss noted. “Aside from the weather, and, along with having the most talented jockeys and trainers, we're all very lucky here to have three of the most beautiful racetracks in the country to visit all year, and I've been lucky enough to add that I've had extraordinary experiences at every one of them.” After being such loyal and dedicated champions of the California racing industry, the Mosses deserve nothing less.

“We still own an interest in Giacomo,” Moss said. “It’s obviously too early to say how he'll do since he's currently standing his first season in California. But he does present a rare commodity, being, I believe, the only Kentucky Derby winner now based here. Also, he brings a ton of character to California breeding possibilities. He can obviously go a mile and a quarter, and he was one of the most courageous racehorses I've ever been around. He was durable, to say the least, and always tried hard in every race.” Despite modest expectations, Giacomo has been a good sire. He has produced 61 winners, five of them in stakes company, and had runners on both the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks trails this spring. His half brother, Tiago, won the grade I Santa Anita Derby for the Mosses in 2007, strengthening the depth of his female family. After the thrill of winning the Derby, the Mosses could never have guessed that something more was in store, but on Nov. 22, 2007, their filly Zenyatta made her career debut a winning one. All she did after that was rally off 18 wins in a row including 13 in grade I company, amass $7,304,580 in earnings, and assemble a legion of fans so dedicated that they still cling to her every move via social media outlets and the mare’s own web site, www.zenyatta.com. Her victory against a full field of males in the 2009 Breeders’ Cup Classic (grade I) at Santa Anita will be remembered as one of the most popular to ever take place over the hallowed course; the approving roar from the crowd shook the grandstand.

Article & Photos by MARCIE HEACOX On March 14, HBO released a statement saying it had cancelled production of its horse racing drama “Luck,” one day after the third equine fatality since production began in 2010. The crew had completed the first episode of season two and was filming the second episode at Santa Anita Park when the third accident occurred in the barn area. HBO’s statement read, in part, “While we maintained the highest safety standards possible, accidents unfortunately happen and it is impossible to guarantee they won’t in the future. Accordingly, we have reached this difficult decision.” Those safety standards included licensing of all handlers, supervision by veterinarians and American Humane Associ-

California-bred Stathy, an eight-year-old Unusual Heat gelding who was a maiden special weight winner for breeder and owner Dan Stathatos at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in August of 2008, is now being trained to be a hunter-jumper at Mountain View Farms in Duarte.

ation (AHA) officers, zero drug-tolerance, frequent X-rays and restrictions on how far and frequently a horse could run. Head trainer Matt Chew, who also operates a public stable, has 15 years’ experience working with the entertainment industry. “I worked on (the 2003 film) ‘Seabiscuit’ and roughly 40 other productions,” Chew said. “We had a perfect safety record prior to this.” Despite all the precautions, misfortune couldn’t be avoided, and hundreds of people and 50 Thoroughbreds were left jobless. HBO took action to ensure the horses found quality homes. Candace Chew, Matt Chew’s wife and Santa Anita’s director of print and graphics, volunteered to oversee the effort. She said most of the horses were owned by Scott Craigmyle, a Santa Anita outrider and that group’s union representative who worked with his son Keith Craigmyle as a wrangler for the show. HBO paid a lump sum to him and donated the horses to charities, most of which will then benefit by collecting adoption fees. Candace Chew said HBO, represented by attorney and Little Red Feather Racing partner Mary Ledding, wanted paperwork to go through charities “so it’d be done right and the horses would get good homes.” Adopters were required to sign agreements that they’d be responsible for a horse for the rest of its life, and can never race it or send it to slaughter. In the event a horse needs to be rehomed, the owner must notify the charity that did the paperwork. “We really tried to pair the right horse with the right person,” Candace Chew said. For example, diminutive mare Lady O’Dwyer went to Seattle-based animal sanctuary Wolf Town because owner T Yamamoto wanted a small horse who was easy to mount. The mare will be used for work with a flock of sheep. The three main horses who played fictional trainer Walter Smith’s (Nick Nolte’s) star runner, Gettin’up Morning, are going to three different in-state locations. Stathy, a California-bred gelding by leading sire Unusual Heat, went to Mountain View Farms in Duarte, where Jane Steiner will train him to be a hunter-jumper. Dancer Man, a Cal-bred gelding by pensioned California sire Turkoman, was shipped to three-day eventer Shirley Aronson at Winner’s Circle Ranch’s satellite facility in Petaluma. Kentucky-bred gelding Moldy Joe went to a barn near Ventura. Cal-bred gelding Bye Now—Ace Bernstein’s (Dustin Hoffman’s) fictional $2 million purchase, Pint of Plain— is moving a short distance to Encanto Equestrian Center in Duarte.

Bye Now, and Kentucky-bred Sunset Red, who played Foray Stables’ claimer, Mon Gateau, will both go back to their previous occupation as pony horses for the Craigmyles. Seven-year-old gelding Relieve was one of the most popular horses for riding scenes, and Matt Chew took him to retrain as a stable pony. Florida-bred Amore Di Aleyna joins his grade II-placed half-brother, We All Love Aleyna, with three-day eventing competitor Cindy Wilson. A majority of the horses used on the show were Calbreds. The three who died—Outlaw Yodeler, Marc’s Shadow and Real Awsome Jet—were among them, but many more Cal-breds and others had their chances at a second, or third, career improved by their participation. “This production was so far reaching,” Candace Chew said. “Most of the people who adopted had a connection to somebody in the production.” Chew used her position as a board member of the California Retirement Management Account (CARMA) to get recommendations on charities. Jamie Cuzick, the show’s barn manager who also played Walter Smith’s groom, Paco, stayed at the barns to show horses to potential adopters. Chiara Tellini helped place 10 horses. She’s a friend of writer John Perrotta and worked as an extra and horse handler. The aforementioned Steiner, who played a jockey in race scenes and gave riding lessons to actors Kerry Condon and Tom Payne, took six horses in addition to Stathy. Dr. Heidi Agnic-Wangerin, one of the show’s veterinarians, works at veterinarian Don Shields’ Winner’s Circle Ranch in Bradbury, where manager Leigh Gray helped find homes for more than half of the “Luck” horses. Gray’s own foundation is the Thoroughbred Rehab Center and her associate, Aronson, will train some of them in three-day eventing at the ranch’s Petaluma location. Other horses were shipped directly to their new owners after going through Winner’s Circle, and the response has been positive. “(Moldy Joe’s owner) called me and said her friend wanted to look specifically at ‘Luck’ horses because she was so impressed,” Gray said. Candace Chew said all of the horses go to their new homes with a microchip, complete X-rays, current vaccinations, deworming, dental care and more. “These horses came to me in excellent health,” Gray said. “One hundred percent of the ones I’ve gotten, their legs are clean and they look great.” In addition to their good health, the “Luck” horses have more training than the average off-track Thoroughbred, having been exposed to unusual situations with filming equipment, vehicles and people. Matt Chew and a large team of exercise riders also spent hundreds of hours teaching the horses not to be competitive while galloping in a herd. “Mentally, these horses have been conditioned to accept unique conditions,” Matt Chew said. “We spent six months to two years with each horse. They’re more relaxed. There’s not near as much fear in these horses.” “Luck” was a learning experience for many humans, too. Many on the cast and crew had little to no horse savvy but soon gained an appreciation for their four-legged co-workers.

“It’s incredible to see how many crew members became attached to the horses,” Matt Chew said. Candace Chew said Dustin Hoffman was initially intimidated by Bye Now, but the pair became fast friends, and the actor would always feed the gelding treats. Matt Chew said the first thing Hoffman would do when he arrived at the barn was ask how Bye Now was doing. John Ortiz, who depicted trainer Turo Escalante, is now a regular at Santa Anita and purchased a share of current runner My Yammy Heat, a Cal-bred filly by Unusual Heat. Condon, who played apprentice jockey Rosie Shanahan, adopted the Cal-bred gelding Yo Diamond from the show and continues to take riding lessons. This is just a sampling of the people and horses who continue to be affected by “Luck.” “HBO and us, Santa Anita—everybody included in it— put their heart and soul into this thing,” Candace Chew said. “It was a very unfortunate ending, but the good news is that these horses are going to go on to have great homes and be competitive.” For more information on remaining adoptable horses or how you can help, contact Candace Chew at her e-mail address of ccoderchew@gmail.com.

Bye Now, a Memo (Chi) gelding bred in California by Ridgeley Farm and the winner of three races, including a maiden special weight race at Santa Anita Park as a two-year-old in December of 2006, is currently being retrained at Encanto Equestrian Center in Duarte.

Racing In Southern California

Cal-Bred Duo Strike Gold In New Stakes Races

by RUDI GROOTHEDDE As the first two of six new races in the 2012 Golden State Series program, the annual restricted stakes race schedule for registered California-bred or California-sired horses, the $200,000 Echo Eddie Stakes and the $200,000 Evening Jewel Stakes at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia on March 31, provided a couple of upset winners in the form of Derby Gold and Warren’s Amber whose previous histories could not have been more diverse. Derby Dreaming? Already named Derby Gold when purchased by Arnold Zetcher for $105,000 as the sale-topper at the 2010 Barretts California Cup Yearling Sale, co-sponsored by the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA), this colt may have blossomed just a little too late to feature in horse racing’s ultimate prize, the Kentucky Derby (grade I), but there may be other Derbies later in the year that could fall within the scope of this easy winner of the Echo Eddie. Trained by Bob Baffert, the conditioner of three Kentucky Derby winners who was recovering in Dubai following a heart attack in that United Arab Emirates city on March 26, Derby Gold was making only his second career start in this 6 1/2-furlong test for three-year-olds on the main track. In his debut at six furlongs on the same dirt oval, he had led at every call except the most important one when losing by a neck to fellow Cal-bred Love That Action in a maiden special weight event on March 8. This time, Derby Gold sped away from the inside post position before settling in third behind Pulpit’s Express and Coach Bob who were both 3-1 wagering choices in the field of 11 Cal-breds. The 9-1 longshot then made a threewide move coming into the stretch before posting a final

time of 1:14.77 while defeating the 2-1 race favorite The Black by three widening lengths. With Martin Garcia again in the irons, he became the 53rd stakes winner for his pensioned sire Bertrando while enjoying a $110,000 payday which increased his lifetime earnings to $121,200. Derby Gold was bred in California by John Baird’s Win More Farm and is the sixth foal and first winner out of 13year-old River Gold, by Seeking the Gold. The Color Of Money At the other end of the spectrum is Warren’s Amber, a Benjamin Warren homebred who hails from the sixth and final crop of Broadway Moon and whose three quarters of a length victory at odds of 11-1 in the Evening Jewel for threeyear-old fillies made her the first stakes winner for her sire. Ridden for the first time by the hot, young apprentice Eswan Flores, she rallied from second to last against 10 Calbreds to collar the 8-5 race favorite and last year’s $100,000 California Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes winner Starlight Magic in a final time of 1:15.97 for 6 1/2 furlongs on the dirt. Warren’s Amber’s $110,000 paycheck upped her bankroll to $155,550 from a record of 7-2-2-2. In 2011, her five starts as a two-year-old yielded a win in a $30,000 maiden claiming race at Santa Anita during November, as well as a third-placed finish in the $100,000 California Breeders’ Champion Stakes on Dec. 26, opening day of the Arcadia track’s 2001/2012 Winter-Spring meet. Occupying the show spot in the Evening Jewel was River Kiss, a graded stakesplaced winner of last year. Warren’s Amber is the fourth foal and first runner out of unraced I’m a Cat’s Meow, an 11-year-old Mud Route half-sister to the stakes-placed, six-time winner Candi’s Princess.

Cal-Bred Millionaires’ Row

#50 Bold Chieftain: A Chief Among Men

by EMILY SHIELDS

©Vassar

Quick! Can you name a strapping dark bay Californiabred millionaire who won stakes races on all three surfaces, showed durable longevity by making 47 starts, and made a post-retirement comeback? If you answered Lava Man, you’d be close, but those statements also apply to Bold Chieftain, the handsome son of Chief Seattle who bested Lava Man by racing over eight seasons to Lava Man’s seven, and won 18 races to Lava Man’s 17. And while Lava Man attained millionaire status via flashy graded stakes scores, Bold Chieftain did it the hard way: by winning 14 stakes of which only one was graded. Without the pomp and circumstance reserved for graded stakes events, Bold Chieftain toiled away in relative obscurity until his consistency and tenacity won over the hearts of California racing fans, especially those in the Northern part of the state where Bold Chieftain was based. Bold Chieftain was born on March 7, 2003, as the fifth foal out of the stakes-placed Seattle Dancer mare Hooked On Music, who already had a strong produce record before her millionaire son came along. Hooked On Music’s first foal was stakes-placed Capt. Fly Hook, a son of Fly Till Dawn, and her third was the multiple stakes-placed Mr. Greeley filly Hooked On Niners.

Hooked On Music visited Chief Seattle in 2002, and the resulting foal was born inbred 4x5x4 to Nearctic and 3x3 to the brilliant mare My Charmer, dam of both Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew (sire of Chief Seattle) and world recordpriced yearling Seattle Dancer ($13.1 million). As a sire of sires, Seattle Slew was already represented by A.P. Indy and Slew o’ Gold, so it was only a matter of time before his dual grade I-placed son Chief Seattle came up with a major runner. Bold Chieftain went into training with Northern Californiabased William Morey, who also bred the colt in partnership with Ernest Langbein, Kenneth Robinson and Dwaine Hall. The muscular, near-black colt debuted at Golden Gate Fields on Nov. 6, 2005, and finished fourth after rallying from behind in the stretch. That effort set him up perfectly for his first of 18 career wins, which came in a six-furlong dirt race on Dec. 1. Bold Chieftain went to the lead this time and never looked back, scoring by 5 1/2 lengths under jockey Joe Castro. Bold Chieftain then finished the year by winning a Bay Meadows allowance optional claiming race by 2 1/4 lengths under Hall of Fame rider Russell Baze. After these two impressive victories, Morey and his other owners entertained brief Kentucky Derby notions by running him in the grade III, $250,000 El Camino Real Derby. Bold

Bold Chieftain, whose 47-race career yielded $1,683,181 in earnings and included 18 wins with 14 of them in stakes company, including this victory in the grade II, $150,000 San Francisco Mile Stakes at Golden Gate Fields on April 24, 2010, retired to stud for the 2012 breeding season at Ellen Jackson’s Victory Rose Thoroughbreds in Vacaville, California.

Chieftain was third, beaten less than three lengths, and defeated the favorite, Southern California-shipper A.P. Warrior. Unfortunately that race also ended Bold Chieftain’s spring season; the colt was put away until the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club meet in the summer. In his Southern California debut, Bold Chieftain finished third in the $106,000 Real Good Deal Stakes, performing admirably off the layoff. He then reeled off two straight wins, including the $57,000 Hayes Valley Stakes at Golden Gate Fields by five lengths, before ending the season with his second graded stakes placing, this time finishing second in the grade III, $100,000 Bay Meadows Derby. Bold Chieftain made six sarts in 2007, and won three of them. He took consecutive stakes in the $49,270 Alamedan Handicap at Pleasanton on July 8, also then won his first race in Southern California; the $136,200 California Dreamin’ Handicap at Del Mar on Aug. 3. That effort was merely a precursor to the biggest win of his career in the $250,000 California Cup Classic Handicap, run on Nov. 3 during the Oak Tree Racing Association meet at Santa Anita Park. In the Cal Cup Classic, Bold Chieftain would be facing the toughest field of his career. The heavy favorite was Lava Man, fresh off a season in which he won the Santa Anita Handicap

and Hollywood Gold Cup, both grade I events. Celtic Dreamin, recent winner of the British Columbia Breeders’ Cup Derby (grade III), was the second choice. Bold Chieftain and Baze were sent away as the third wagering choice at 5-1, but ended up prevailing in a thrilling four-horse finish. Bold Chieftain found the wire first, a half-length ahead of Celtic Dreamin, while Lava Man struggled home sixth. It was the only time that Bold Chieftain crossed paths with his fellow Cal-bred star. After this victory, Bold Chieftain began to amass a solid fan base all over his native state. He returned to Northern California for the spring, and reeled off consecutive victories in the $68,850 President’s Day Mile Stakes on the dirt and the $70,980 March Madness and $124,000 Bay Meadows Handicaps on the grass, all taking place during Bay Meadows Racecourse’s final spring meet. Although he finished fourth in the Ack Ack Handicap (grade III) at Hollywood Park, Bold Chieftain rebounded to defend his title in the $128,380 California Dreamin’ Handicap. He followed that with two runner-up finishes, first in the grade II, $328,000 Del Mar Mile, then in the $175,000 California Cup Mile Handicap. Continued on next page

Cal-Bred Millionaires’ Row Cont’d. The strong year earned Bold Chieftain a spot in the grade I, $1,951,080 Breeders’ Cup Mile, which was held at Santa Anita. Although Bold Chieftain finished eighth, he earned the title of California Champion Turf Horse for 2008, defeating Lethal Heat and California Flag in the voting. At the time, Bold Chieftain had $828,327 in earnings, and co-owner Dwaine Hall expressed interest in breaching the $1 million mark. He also noted that they would be looking to stand Bold Chieftain in California in the near future. Little did they know that the grand colt would race 24 more times! Bold Chieftain made another nine starts in 2009, but did not win until Sept. 7, at the Sacramento Fair. He won the $80,000 Governor’s Handicap over 1 1/8 miles on the dirt main track, winning by five lengths in driving fashion. That effort primed Bold Chieftain for another run at the Cal Cup Classic. Although his powerful victory at 4-1 odds went overshadowed when two horses were vanned off in the $196,000 event, Bold Chieftain became the first horse to win the prestigious race twice. He also became the 50th California-bred millionaire, joining the ranks of such great state runners as Tiznow, Best Pal and Snow Chief. Rather than being put away for the year, Bold Chieftain made one more 2009 start in the $60,200 San Quentin Stakes at Golden Gate. Under Baze’s expert guidance, he won it in typical fashion, dominating by three lengths at the end. That victory marked his second straight score on an all-weather surface. Unfortunately, Bold Chieftain’s return to form came right at the time when California Flag and Dancing in Silks both won Breeders’ Cup races, so the popular dark horse was not awarded any year-end trophies, but he continued marching into 2010, and to his biggest victory yet. After prepping with a fourth place finish in the San Pasqual Handicap (grade II), Bold Chieftain went to the post

in the $500,000 Sunshine Millions Classic Stakes. Grade I winner and fellow Cal-bred The Usual Q. T. would go favored, but Bold Chieftain reached the wire first, scoring by a neck over Palladio in another thrilling finish. He had steadied in midstretch and was in traffic with less than an eighth of a mile to go, but rallied boldly between horses for the win. After two Cal Cup trophies and a win in such a rich race, it seemed impossible that Bold Chieftain had more in reserve, but he surprised again on April 24, winning the grade II, $150,000 San Francisco Mile Stakes back home at Golden Gate and finally getting his graded stakes win in his 36th lifetime start. After losing his next two starts, Bold Chieftain was retired. Morey carefully let him down while shopping for a stallion farm, but interest was weak, even for a millionaire with a strong pedigree and spectacular race record. When no agreement could be made, Bold Chieftain returned to training and pointed towards yet another season on the track in 2011. In his first six starts of the new year, eight-year-old Bold Chieftain finished second a frustrating five times. He even lost two allowance tries, suggesting that perhaps he had lost a step, but he suddenly came through again to win the $62,600 Bull Dog Stakes at the Fresno Fair, defeating graded stakes winner Uh Oh Bango. He had now won over seven different racetracks, all in the same state. In his lone 2012 start on Jan. 16, Bold Chieftain finished second by a nose in a Golden Gate allowance. With a stud deal firmly in place, he was retired with 18 wins, 14 seconds and four thirds in 47 starts and earnings of $1,683,181, placing him 16th on the all-time Cal-bred earnings list, although the two horses just below him, Amazombie and Acclamation, are both active. After parading in front of fans at Golden Gate on Jan. 22, Bold Chieftain took up residence at Ellen Jackson’s Victory Rose Thoroughbreds in Vacaville. He is standing for a listed fee of $3,000, and joins Grey Memo and McCann’s Mojave as the only Cal-bred millionaires standing in their home state.

A Blast From The Past

Sagely: The Numbers Don’t Lie

by JACKIE BARNES By the end of that season, a trainer named Bill Strange had acquired Sagely who then raced in the name of his wife. Sagely won his first three starts for Strange at Waterford Park in West Virginia. In July of 1975, the stable moved to Finger Lakes in New York, where Sagely won the first of his record breaking 40 races and which began its celebration of 50 years of Thoroughbred racing on April 20, 2012. Together, Strange won 17 of 22 starts with Sagely from 1975 to October of 1978, when the horse was claimed for $5,000 by J. J. Perdue. From 1978 through 1983, Sagley raced not only at Finger Lakes but at three other tracks in the Midwest. In 1983, at the age of 13, now trained by Harold George Bond, Sagely set a new track record of 1:59 4/5 for 1 3/16 miles at Finger Lakes At the age of 14, he won the 50th race of his career at Finger Lakes on Nov. 10, 1984. His last win came at Finger Lakes for Bond on May 12, 1985. Sagely was inducted into the Hall of Fame at Finger Lakes in 1996. From 1975 through 1977, he finished no worse than second while winning 12 of 14 races, while 26 of his lifetime wins came at the ages of 11 to 15. On the list of horses with the most wins since 1950, is Native Diver, California’s first millionaire with 37 wins, 34 in stakes competition. Also with 34 stakes wins is Exterminator, a 50-time winner from 100 starts. Kingston, a foal of 1898, holds the overall record of 89 wins in 138 trips to post, with earnings of $138,917. One final note on our hero Sagely. He was a horse whose career spanned 124 starts, while racing at distances from five furlongs to 1 3/16 miles. His career totals were 124-5123-11 with earnings of $116,196. The last line on his Hall of Fame bio says it perfectly, “Sagely’s longevity was matched by his courage and desire to compete.”

Statistics today play a huge roll in all facets of everyday life. Whether it is in business, planning household expenses, or especially in sports. Statisticians spend thousands of hours creating and maintaining various categories, be it basketball, baseball or alpine ski racing. In horse racing, there is also a wide variety of statistics which many wise handicappers study. One of the more studied areas involves percentages, which takes in earnings per start, performances at different tracks, their racing surfaces and various levels of competition. You can be sure that the more numbers there are, no matter how big or small, it will generate plenty of interest. On the flip side, the wisest students or sages of the game also take into consideration the pedigree on the sire and dam’s side of each entrant. Was the horse bred for speed, distance, can they handle the track surface or just versatile enough to do it all? If you research the list of the all-time leaders by wins, you’ll find that the numbers put up by some of these battletested warriors are staggering. California-bred Sagely, bred by Mrs. A. M. Peart, was foaled at Oak Leaf Ranch in Elmira on Mar. 23, 1970. This hardened veteran raced for 14 seasons, winning 51 times in 124 starts, a better than 40 percent win percentage. Among the many great California legends over the years, Sagely’s record number of 51 wins by a Cal-bred ranks him well ahead of the legendary Native Diver. Sagely made his only start as a two-year-old for his owner Mrs. Peart in a maiden race over six furlongs at Sacramento in August of 1972. He showed nothing, finishing a poor ninth in a field of 10 at 56-1. Following a 16-month layoff, Sagely’s sixth start as a four-year-old saw him break his maiden at 1 1/16 miles by seven lengths over a sloppy track at Golden Gate Fields on March 28, 1974.

On November 10, 1984, Sagely won the 39th of his record-breaking 40 wins at Finger Lakes in New York, and his 50th of 51 career victories that makes him the California-bred with the most wins of all time.

Horse Care

Using “Bute” In Horses

by HEATHER SMITH THOMAS Phenylbutazone (“bute”) is an anti-inflammatory drug— a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory similar to aspirin, Advil, Motrin, Banamine, etc. Bute has been used for decades in horses to relieve pain, particularly in musculoskeletal injuries, navicular syndrome, arthritis and so on. Melinda Freckleton, DVM (Haymarket, Virginia), says this is a drug that’s used frequently and is a comparatively safe and effective way to reduce pain and inflammation. Veterinarians prescribe it for a wide number of problems, but horse owners should be aware of possible side effects, just like when using pain relievers in humans. “Even though most humans can tolerate a little aspirin or ibuprofin once in awhile, there are a few individuals who cannot use these. The same is true with horses and bute. There are also some risks when using these drugs inappro-

priately—such as at too high a dose or for too long a duration,” she says. “This is why there are some very specific dosing recommendations that horse owners need to be aware of, realizing that even though the drug is helpful, giving more than the recommended dose is not going to give more benefit. Several studies have shown that there are diminishing returns when increasing the dosage. On a practical basis, one gram will give a certain amount of pain relief, while three grams will not give you more,” explains Freckleton. Giving an increased dose will, however, result in more side effects (and may be quite dangerous to the horse) without giving more pain relief. Horse owners should try to administer the lowest dose that gives benefit to the horse. Giving more may cause more adverse reactions. These side effects include gastric ulcers, kidney dysfunction and, occasionally, right dorsal colitis. Gastric ulcers are the most common risk. “There are certain horses who probably won’t get gastric ulcers no matter what we do to them (similar to certain humans who can tolerate continual use of aspirin with no problems). But you need to realize that often the horses who are receiving the most bute, the most frequently, have other risks at the same time (such as stress, pain) that also make them more prone to ulcers. A drug like bute is a risk factor for gastric ulcers, but so is any kind of physiologic stress. This could include the condition you are treating, or even being confined in a stall. Often, whatever painful condition you are treating requires you to confine the horse or change its routine and restrict its activity,” she says. Thus the risks are often multiplied. “The horses we know are at risk for gastric ulcers should probably receive a different drug or we might, in addition to the bute, recommend giving a gastric protective product such as omeprazole (Gastrogard or Ulcergard) or ranitidine (a generic ulcer treatment). We have options for dealing with this risk and need to keep these in mind,” says Freckleton. Less common side effects of bute

include right dorsal colitis. “This is a more serious GI tract condition that bute and other NSAIDs can cause. It’s rare, but causes diarrhea and sometimes fever. I have only seen a couple of horses in which this problem was confirmed. I’ve never confirmed it as having been directly related to use of bute, but any horse that has a history of right dorsal colitis should not be given bute.” That horse could be treated with the new drug Equioxx instead. Kidney failure is also a possibility when overusing bute. “I have not seen this in any horse where bute has been administered correctly, but some veterinarians have reported owners accidentally giving the entire tube of bute paste in one dose— 12 grams at once. That can cause kidney failure,” she says. Some people forget they have to adjust the dosage on the tube. “When you pick up a tube of dewormer, you typically give the horse the whole tube. The new Equioxx is marketed in individual doses—one tube per average size horse,” she explains. But with bute paste, don’t give it all at once; the tube is calibrated for multiple dosings and you have to change the setting to give the correct dose. If you give all 12 grams at once you will make the horse very ill. If this ever happens, by accident, it’s a serious emergency. Call the veterinarian immediately, to save your horse’s life. “If a veterinarian can get there right away, we can lavage the stomach (flushing some of the drug back out) and administer charcoal to help absorb some of the rest of the bute (so it can’t be absorbed by the horse). We’ll also start the horse on IV fluids to make sure the kidneys are well flushed. These actions can prevent potential life-threatening illness that could result,” says Freckleton. “The horse who gets an accidental overdose should also be given gastric protection such as Gastrogard, because the excess bute will have GI tract effects as well, such as ulcers or right dorsal colitis,” she says. You are more apt to see these adverse side effects in any horse who has suffered an overdose. “Another caution, when people are using bute at home, is to make sure they read labels and are giving the correct amount,” she says. In earlier years, the only form of bute was pills, which were often difficult to give to the horse. We typically crushed these with a hammer, to create a powder to be mixed with feed or with applesauce or molasses and water and given by oral dose syringe.

This was more time-consuming and inconvenient than the powders, or tubes of paste we have today, but the dosage was much more specific. One tablet was one gram. You might waste a little when crushing it into a powder, but you knew how much you were giving the horse. Today there are some different formulations of bute powder. “They are much easier to give than the tablets, but they come in varying concentrations. In people’s tack or feed rooms I see some brands in which a tablespoon of the powder contains a gram of bute, and some in which a teaspoon equals a gram of bute,” she says. This can get you into trouble if you can’t remember what the dosage should be. Always keep labels from packages, and read them before administering the powder.

“I’ve seen some people who keep the bute powder in a plastic baggie, and then wonder how much to give. If they no longer have the original label, they should just throw it away. There’s no way to know the concentration of that powder, without a laboratory analysis,” says Freckleton. She advises saving the original package and not moving the product from package to package, as well as always reading the label carefully. The label may say to give one scoop. So don’t lose the scoop! If you do, you’d have to call the manufacturer to see what size it was. If you own a horse who has trouble with bute, avoid this drug altogether. “This is easier to do now, since we have the new drug Equioxx, which acts a little bit differently. It’s a COX2 inhibitor, and does not produce some of the side effects that bute may cause. It’s a little more expensive than bute, about the same price as Banamine paste, and is cheaper than giving a horse bute and Gastrogard (which was the only alternative we had earlier when using bute or Banamine in some individuals),” she says. Equioxx is fairly reasonable for most people, if their horse needs it. Not every horse needs to have this instead of bute, but for the ones that can’t handle bute, this is a good alternative. The possible side effects that can occur with bute are the reason that this is a prescription product, to be given to a

certain horse in a certain dosage, as recommended by your veterinarian. “And because it is a prescription, this is why you should not hand it to your neighbor to give, without a veterinarian saying that horse should receive it. But it is a comparatively safe prescription product and has been used on thousands of horses for many decades,” she says. One thing to remember when using bute or any other NSAID, is to take your horse’s temperature before you give the drug. The anti-inflammatory drug will lower a fever, and may also make the horse feel better and mask the pain of lameness. “If the owner has misdiagnosed something and then calls the veterinarian, my coming and taking the horse’s temperature later, after they’ve given bute, won’t give a true picture. And if your horse has a minor lameness please don’t give him bute before you call the vet to come diagnose lameness. The veterinarian must be able to see the lameness to pinpoint the problem,” explains Freckleton. “This happens a lot, and it’s very frustrating. The owner feels bad for the horse who is lame, and gives them bute, and then is annoyed when the veterinarian can’t see the lameness well enough to diagnose it properly. If they are lucky, it will get better and there’s no need to have the veterinarian come back out again another day to try to diagnose it, but otherwise this is not a very efficient use of their money and their vet’s time.” It also just prolongs the interim before they can figure out what is really wrong with the horse.

A recent study at Louisiana State University looked at the pathological effects of bute on the right dorsal colon in horses (results published in the November 2008 edition of the American Journal of Veterinary Research). The researchers administered bute orally (at a rate of 8.8 mg/kg of body weight, which is a typical daily dose) once a day for two weeks, to one group of horses, and a placebo to another group. The purpose of the study was to assess systemic effects of routine doses of bute on healthy horses. Some of the horses receiving bute showed lower than normal levels of albumin and white blood cells during the first three days of treatment, along with increased arterial blood flow to the right dorsal colon and decreased volatile fatty acid production in the colon. Two of the horses receiving bute developed colits (inflammation of the colon) curing the 21 day study period. The report stated that these results demonstrate the extreme variability in how horses tolerate bute. “The low albumin would probably be the result of gut inflammation. The bute may be causing some low grade inflammation that we don’t realize just by looking at the horses. I wouldn’t necessarily be alarmed by this, in the average healthy horse that needs the medication,” says Freckleton. “But this kind of warning reminds us that with prescription drugs, we should not just give it to a horse unless the horse really needs it.” The affects in the colon, observed in the study, fits with the potential side effect of right dorsal colitis. “It

may be that some horses heal up from this insult better than others,” she explains. One advantage with bute is that it has been around such a long time and we’ve had a chance to study it more than some of the newer drugs or alternative therapies. “We’ve certainly studied it a lot more than the herbal treatments some people like to give as an alternative. There are a number of herbal products that may or may not help the horse, and we don’t know what the side effects might be. We haven’t looked at them closely to see if they cause decreases in albumin or any other parameter. There are lots of people who feel very good about giving these alternative medications to their horse, and maybe it’s a good thing and maybe it’s not. We have no idea. We don’t know if these herbal products are effective and we don’t know if they have adverse side effects.” Just because something is “natural” doesn’t mean it is better, or safer. There are many “natural” poisons. “We can get the same compound that’s in aspirin out of willow bark, but you don’t know how much of that compound is in any given batch, and it also has side effects.” Willow bark was one of the first pain relievers used by humans, and aspirin is a great drug, and still prescribed by veterinarians for certain horses. But it does have some serious side effects, similar to the side effects of bute. So just because something is natural does not mean it is any safer than a prescription drug.

California-Bred Incentive Awards

The Cal-Bred Incentive Program

Questions and answers concerning California-breds and California’s lucrative incentive awards program, which was responsible for breeders, owners and stallion owners collecting nearly $10 million for 2011. 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 $17,500 in Southern California and $10,000 in Northern California and at all Fair meetings throughout the state. These awards are paid directly to the owner approximately 45 racing days after the win. Only races at 4 1/2 furlongs or longer will qualify. 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

42 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED • MAY 2012

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 up to 10 percent being paid by September 1 and the final payment for 2012 being paid by March 31, 2013. The stallion awards are paid prior to March 31, 2013.

Are there special racing opportunities for California-breds? Yes. Racetracks in California are required by law to offer one race per day which is restricted to California-breds. Last year this amounted to 286 additional racing opportunities and over $13 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 $3.6 million in 2011 and will grow significantly through the creation of the Golden State Series. Also, in 2012, California Cup XXIII will be held at Santa Anita Park on a date to be announced. Part of the funding for California Cup XXIII will come from the incentive award category, the California-bred Race Fund. 9.5 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. 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. 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.

www.ctba.com

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. 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 but before 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. How can I obtain more information?

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 2011 but is standing in the state in 2012, a double dagger (‡) that he is not standing in California in 2012 but will stand in the state in 2013 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.

Effective Deworming Guest Forum

by MARY KNIGHT The effects of internal parasites range from dull hair-coat and unthriftiness to anemia, colic and even death. They lower a horse’s resistance to infection, interfere with nutrient absorption, and can cause permanent damage to the internal organs. Failure to control parasites in young horses will seriously compromise future success. While there are more than 150 species of parasites that can infect horses, the most dangerous are: • Large Strongyles (bloodworms) Attach themselves to the walls of the large intestine where the females pass eggs into the manure. The eggs hatch and grazing horses swallow the larvae. The larvae then migrate to the large arteries of the intestine and cause damage to the walls of the arteries. • Small Strongyles Do not penetrate the intestinal wall or migrate through

the tissues. They burrow into the lining of the intestine and remain encysted for several months before completing their life cycle. In this stage, they are resistant to most dewormers. Larvacidal therapy is recommended to treat the encysted small strongyles. Fenbendazole is the only FDA-approved product to treat all stages of encysted strongyles in horses. When large numbers of larvae emerge from the encysted stage at the same time, they can cause severe damage to the lining of the intestine. Colic and diarrhea are common in heavily infected horses. Weight-loss, slowed growth, poor coat condition, pot-belly and lack of energy are visible results of infestation. • Roundworms (ascarids) Are prevalent in young horses (especially foals, weanlings and yearlings). Adult round worms are large (several

Once in the lung, they are coughed up, swallowed and return to the digestive tract to complete their lifecycle. • Tapeworms Previously not considered a problem in horses, are now known to cause colic. The intermediate host is a mite that is swallowed while horses are grazing. There are a number of readily available, easy to administer products for controlling parasites in horses. Unfortunately, resistance to these products has become widespread and is directly related to this ready availability and easy administration. Resistance develops when the recommended dose of the dewormer doesn’t kill 100 percent of the parasites in an individual horse. The resistant survivors mate with other resistant survivors to produce resistant offspring. Most farms follow the standard policy of deworming every two months. This approach is a factor in the trend toward resistance to common anthelmintics. To combat the parasites on your farm, it is important to know which dewormer is still effective on your farm, which individual horses require minimal, moderate or intensive control measures, and what intervals or timing will best achieve success. Kansas State University recommends a dewormning program for foals starting at 30 to 60 days of age and continuing every other month until the foal is at least 18 months old. An example deworming strategy includes ivermectin, pyrantel and double-dose fenbendazole in a rotational schedule. This should insure that your foal is parasite-free. Please note that moxidectin should not be used in foals less than six months old. The new deworming program is evidence-based treatment. Performing a fecal egg count will assist in developing a parasite control program and

monitoring the effectiveness of that program. Fecal egg count requires the collection of a fresh manure specimen from the horse being tested and sending the sample to a veterinary laboratory. Results are most useful when several horses on a farm are tested on the same day. This information provides a good idea as to the level of parasitism on the property. There are three basic types of deworming programs. • Continuous—feeding a daily dewormer year-round • Interval-deworming at regular intervals of one, two or three months • Strategic—deworming only at certain times of the year or when fecal egg counts rise There is no single deworming program that suits all horses and all situations. The type, number and ages of the horses on the farm, pasture management and geographic location will decide the ideal program for you. Whichever program or combination of programs you choose it is a good idea to monitor your progress with fecal egg counts every six to 12 months. Since parasites are primarily transferred via fecal material, good pasture management is an essential part of a complete program. • Keep the number of horses per acre to a minimum to reduce pasture contamination. • Pick up and dispose of manure regularly. • Do not spread manure on pastures to be grazed by horses. • Mow and harrow pastures periodically to break up manure piles and expose larvae to the elements. • Keep foals and weanlings separate from yearlings and other horses to minimize their exposure to ascarids. • Use a feeder for hay and grain rather than feeding on the ground. It takes a great deal of time, trouble and money to breed, raise and train a horse to race. Every obstacle that can be identified and overcome along the way assures a smoother road to success.
