The Door To The Future From The Executive Corner by SUE GREENE The 2013 Triple Crown is upon us. As we look back over the past 40 years, remembering the incredible Belmont Stakes stretch run of the great Secretariat, I think that all of us who are involved with this sport hope that we will be privileged to see another Triple Crown winner like Secretariat, Affirmed or Seattle Slew. I can vividly recall watching Secretariat win the 1973 Kentucky Derby. As a Sham fan, I thought he couldn’t possibly come back and win the Preakness Stakes. Dismayed again that my horse Sham was defeated at Pimlico, I was certain he would redeem himself and win the Belmont. To this day, I still get chills and a slight tear when I hear the stretch call of Chic Anderson stating, “Secretariat is widening now. He is moving like a tremendous machine!” Our sport has evolved and changed over the past 40 years, and faces some monumental challenges in today’s economy. The California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA) has been working closely with lobbyist Robyn Black to regain a presence in Sacramento that has dimmed since the days of Ken Maddy. We have been supported by the Thoroughbred Owners of California (TOC), as well as prominent trainers and jockeys, in bringing personal contact with Legislators in Sacramento. I am also very excited with the response back from Sacramento. We have had the privilege to host several Legislators at all our major tracks throughout California; some have now even paid return visits with their families. Also through Robyn, we have taken several of our working community from Sacramento’s Legislative offices to various farms throughout the state. Allowing these men and women, who represent us through our various districts, to go to these farms and play with foals, walk through fields of yearlings and watch young horses gallop, we have developed new interests and devotion to our great sport. We recently had Legislators visit Santa Anita Park with their young families for the Santa Anita Derby on April 6,

and we were extremely excited through the graciousness of the Doug O’Neill barn to allow them to be present in the winner’s circle! What a wonderful impression and lasting memory for them, as well as the enthusiasm they now possess for a potential Kentucky Derby prospect! On April 18, I was fortunate to host Assemblymembers Franklin Bigelow (R-O’Neals) and Marc Levine (D-San Rafael), Katherine Wheeler of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) and the CTBA’s Doug Burge at my Woodbridge Farm in Oakdale after they, and Senator Tom Berryhill (R-Modesto), had earlier visited Pete and Evelyn Parrella’s Legacy Ranch in Clements. I introduced Frank and Marc to several foals, one of whom in particular became fast friends with the former! Marc has also taken the time to visit Golden Gate Fields, while Frank is no stranger to livestock. Having cattle and horses himself, he understands all that is involved in raising, as well as racing, our valuable livestock. Both visitors listened carefully as we spoke about the issues and plight we face in today’s economy. I believe this year, as the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont approach, these Assemblymembers, as well as their families, will watch these races with a heightened awareness and enthusiasm. They have met one of the contenders in person, and that puts an entirely new face on this industry for them as they sit in meetings and hearings in Sacramento. It is our goal to continue to bring more Legislators to both the tracks and farms, as well as to other events that support horse breeding and racing. A special thank you to Robyn, who works tirelessly to see that Thoroughbred breeding and racing continues to be an integral part of California’s great Agricultural future. I would also like to extend my gratitude to all the farms, trainers, jockeys and racetracks that have opened their doors so we can promote, educate and enlighten these Legislators to the “Sport of Kings” in California.

Managing Editor’s Welcome

Looking For The Next Secretariat

©Lisa Groothedde

C O L U M N

It’s been 35 years since the last Triple Crown winner, Affirmed in 1978, so it is that time of year again when everyone is looking for the next Secretariat, the legendary runner who broke a 25-year drought himself with memorable victories in the grade I Kentucky Derby and Preakness and Belmont Stakes exactly 40 years ago in 1973. This May 2013 issue of California Thoroughbred, the official publication of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA), celebrates this anniversary with a cover story that pays tribute to the achievements of “Big Red” and the impact that he has had on California’s breeding and racing industry since. The article includes details of the racing and breeding career of Big Red’s last foal Tinners Way, a two-time winner of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club’s Pacific Classic Stakes (grade I). He retired to stud in Kentucky for the 1997 breeding season and was then based at Harris Farms in the Golden State from 2000 to 2003, before relocating to Key Ranch in Texas where the 23-year-old is still alive and well today after being pensioned from stud duty in 2010. Also included in this magazine are: advertorials featuring some of the 2013 California foals at Rancho San Miguel in San Miguel and Victory Rose Thoroughbreds in Vacaville; a CTBA Member Profile on Herman Sarkowsky, whose most recent of many local successes was Omega Star’s stakes win last month; and a preview of this year’s Barretts Sales and Racing May Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training being held at Fairplex in Pomona on Monday, May 13, following an under-tack preview for the auction at adjacent Fairplex Park on Friday, May 10. There is a fascinating, must-read editorial titled “The Oakridge Estate: Preserving History” along with a review of the win by the California-bred mare Tiz Flirtatious in the Santa Ana Stakes (grade II) at Santa Anita Park on March 24. That Arcadia track was also the location for the past month’s black-type victories by the Cal-bred trio of Omega Star, Doinghardtimeagain and Sister Kate that are reviewed in Racing In Southern California, while the latest chapter in our CalBred Millionaires’ Row series features the 2010 California Horse of the Year, Evening Jewel, who became the 54th locally bred runner to pass the seven-figure mark in earnings at Churchill Downs in Kentucky on Nov. 5, 2010. A Blast From The Past spotlights the lone stakes win by Martin Wygod’s Settecento in the Derby Trial Stakes at Churchill Downs on May 1, 1973, when he defeated the legendary Mr. Prospector, while “Growth Rates In Foals” is the subject matter of this month’s Horse Care piece. Details of the CTBA’s Incentive Awards Program for Cal-breds, including listings of the 2012 Breeder and Stallion Award recipients, are also included in this issue and 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 the best to the best and not just have to hope for the best! In the Company of. . .Belmont Park’s statue of Secretariat, winner of the 1973 Triple Crown with victories in that year’s grade I Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Kentucky, Preakness Stakes at Pimlico in Maryland and Belmont Stakes in New York, on October 27, 2005.

Northern California Report: First & Foremost

News Bits When the five-year-old mare Luscious Lonna successfully exited from the inside stall for the running of the $61,350 Golden Poppy Stakes on April 7, she became trainer Nick Sloan’s first starter in a race above the claiming level. Slightly less than 106 seconds later, she was his first stakes winner, following a gate-to-wire romp in the 1 1/16-mile turf test at Golden Gate Fields. A daughter of the Ballena Vista Farm stallion Benchmark and Thunder Gulch’s Striking Point, Luscious Lonna broke alertly to lead her 10 rivals, including the even-money choice and grade II-winning California champion Halo Dolly, on a merry chase. At the top of the stretch, she scooted away for an eventual 2 1/2-length win over Lady Aspen in 1:45.86, with the favorite checking in for third.

Sloan claimed Luscious Lonna for himself and partners Jon Harris and Bonnie Marshall from her breeder Nicholas Alexander for $6,250 in

Freshman Sire Idiot Proof Comes Out Firing Grade I winner Idiot Proof, the 2007 California Champion Sprinter and California Champion ThreeYear-Old Male, leapt from the gate running as a freshman sire, with each of his first two starters from his inaugural crop of runners achieving wins in the early months of 2013. The nine-year-old Benchmark stallion, who set a pair of six-furlong track records at Santa Anita Park and Monmouth Park and earned a collective $1,294,484 from 17 starts, was represented by his initial winner on March 18, when his two-year-old filly On Autopilot won a 2 1/2-furlong race at Hipodromo de las Americas in Mexico. His first American winner was recorded on April 11, when his juvenile filly Frisco Fog captured her two-furlong career debut at Golden Gate Fields. Idiot Proof stands at Ballena Vista Farm in Ramona.

March of 2011. “She got headed in her first race but came back on,” Sloan explained. “I thought she had heart. And you know Mr. Alexander does good things. I liked the cross. Actually, she’s even better on Tapeta.” Luscious Lonna’s record moved to 11-7-2-1 with $150,075 in earnings. She is Benchmark’s 36th stakes winner, moving him within one of five-time leading sire Unusual Heat on the list of active California stallions in this category.—Jerry Klein

Cal-Bred Lazy Slusan Produces Grade I Winner The grade I, $300,000 Madison Stakes at Keeneland in Kentucky on April 13, was won by Last Full Measure, a five-year-old daughter of Empire Maker and Lazy Slusan, Slewvescent’s two-time grade I winner at the age of six in 2001. Bred in California by The Robert H. Walter Family Trust, Lazy Slusan earned $1,150,410 from a 47-12-7-10 record while her fourth foal boasts four wins, a second, three thirds and a $293,245 bankroll from 11 starts. Thirteen-year-old Bartok’s Blithe, by Bartok (Ire), was another Cal-bred who became the dam of a blacktype winner this past month, when her third foal Kaminari, a four-year-old filly by First Samurai, won the $70,000 Gold Coast Stakes at Delta Downs in Louisiana on March 22, to increase her bankroll to $85,744 from a record of 8-3-1-0. A dual 2003 stakes winner for her breeder Morry Cohen, Bartok’s Blithe won three races and placed 10 times in 30 starts for earnings of $389,656.

Secretariat: Something Special

C O V E R

Equine Industry Milestones

S T O R Y

by DENISE STEFFANUS In the jock’s room weigh-in before the 1973 Belmont (grade I), Anderson asked Secretariat’s rider, Ron Turcotte, if he was “feeling the weight” of the Triple Crown. “It’s just another race,” Turcotte replied. In later years, the Canadian jockey admitted that he just tried to stay out of Secretariat’s way in the Belmont. He never asked him to run. He just let him roll. As silver-haired trainer Lucien Laurin saddled Secretariat for the race, legendary sportscaster Heywood Hale Broun compared Sham with his nemesis. “He looks like a million. But, unfortunately, in this next stall is a horse that looks like six million, with $80,000 thrown in for dessert,” Broun said. After the race, Laurin described Secretariat’s exhibition as the greatest moment of his life. Secretariat was the first Triple Crown winner to be presented with the modern silver trophy, which had awaited a recipient since its commission in 1950. This writer started at the racetrack as a groom in 1973. I remember riding on a van with a stable of claimers as it moved slowly through New York City. People rushed up to the window to ask excitedly, “Is that Secretariat?” Continued on next page

Forty years ago, Chic Anderson shouted the most adrenaline-pumping race call ever to blast over the loud speakers: “Secretariat is widening now. He is moving like a tremendous machine!” The 25-year drought since Citation rolled across the wire in the 1948 Belmont Stakes was finally over. Racing, at long last, had another Triple Crown winner. At the time of Citation’s coronation, Spike Jones’ “William Tell Overture” blared from radios on the 1940s backstretch; in 1973, the sound of Paul McCartney’s “Red Rose Speedway” celebrated the win by “Big Red.” And what a speedway it was, that sweltering June 9 at Belmont Park in New York. Secretariat trampled Citation’s time by 4 1/5 seconds while setting a new mark of 2:24 flat for the 1 1/2 miles. He was so far ahead of his rivals—by 31 lengths at the wire—that television cameras had to pan the field with a wide-angle shot just to get another horse in the frame. Emotions ranged from unbridled pandemonium to silent disbelief. In the grandstand, owner Penny Chenery flailed her arms about like she was waving down a runaway horse. Then she clenched her hands together high above her head in the sign of victory.

“Sure is. . .Big Red himself,” I lied. How I wished it were so. Something charismatic about Secretariat filled everyone with excitement and bestowed enduring celebrity on anyone with a connection to him. Of that privileged core, only Chenery, 91, Turcotte, 71, and exercise rider Charlie Davis, 73, remain. Ironically for Turcotte, the same place where his star shined brightest was also where he endured his darkest moment when a horrendous spill at Belmont left him a paraplegic in 1978. Laurin passed away in 2000 at age 88; groom Eddie Sweat died of leukemia in 1998, destitute, at age 58; and exercise rider Jim Gaffney died in his sleep from emphysema in 2010 at age 75. All were preceded in death by the great stallion, who succumbed to laminitis on October 4, 1989, at Claiborne Farm in Kentucky. Secretariat’s Legacy During his 16 years at stud from 1974 to 1989, Secretariat

Distaff, looking like a misty specter of her father as she opened up a five-length lead, clinched Horse of the Year honors. Lady’s Secret produced a dozen foals. Secret Stranger by Skip Away and Cool Valley Cowboy by General Meeting, her last two in 2002 and 2003, were California-breds. Risen Star may have got beaten up by a girl in the 1988 Kentucky Derby (grade I), when third to Winning Colors who grasped the roses in a gate-to-wire performance, but he would have his day—in fact, two of them. In the Preakness Stakes (grade I), the 17.1-hand son of Secretariat took over the lead in the stretch to defeat the Kentucky Derby winner in third. Racing was denied a Triple Crown, but three weeks later, Belmont crackled with excitement in anticipation of the test between Derby winner and Preakness winner. Racing analysts repeatedly referenced Secretariat’s tour de force, but no one imagined what was in store when the gates opened on the six-horse field. The gray filly rushed to the front, but Risen Star overtook her rounding the far turn. The son of Secretariat emerged from the turn with legs pumping like pistons at

produced a total of 663 foals. Among them were three champions—the 1986 Eclipse Horse of the Year and Champion Older Mare, Lady’s Secret; the 1988 Eclipse Champion Three-Year-Old Colt, Risen Star; and the 1978 Canadian champion two-year-old Medaille d’Oro—and five millionaires, Lady’s Secret ($3,021,325), Risen Star ($2,029,845), Tinners Way ($1,846,546), Japanese-raced Hishi Masaru ($1,704,721) and Australia’s 1990 Melbourne Cup (group I) winner Kingston Rule ($1,171,164). Secretariat excelled as a broodmare sire. His daughter Terlingua produced perennial leading sire Storm Cat, while Weekend Surprise produced both 1990 Preakness Stakes (grade I) winner Summer Squall and 1992 Breeders’ Cup Classic Stakes (grade I) winner A.P. Indy. Lady’s Secret won 25 of her 45 starts. In 1986, Californians were dazzled by the quicksilver daughter of Secretariat when she commanded the dirt at Santa Anita Park. She warmed up with a win in January’s El Encino Stakes (grade III), then added three grade I victories there, culminating with the Breeders’ Cup Distaff in November. Her performance in the

Indy. ABC’s Dave Johnson screamed, “He looks like his daddy,” as he counted off the ever-increasing margin. Risen Star won by 14 3/4 lengths in 2:26 2/5, the fastest time behind Secretariat’s record 2:24. California’s Secretariat Tinners Way could be called California’s Secretariat. The last foal from Secretariat’s final crop made 16 of his 27 career starts on Golden State tracks and was retired after bankrolling over a half a million dollars more than his sire. The Juddmonte Farms homebred, trained by the late Bobby Frankel, dominated back-to-back Pacific Classic Stakes (grade I) at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in 1994 and 1995, both in under two minutes. In the earlier edition, he equaled the track record for 1 1/4 miles in 1:59.43, matching his sire’s 1:59 2/5 mark for the same distance set in the 1973 Kentucky Derby (grade I). Tinners Way also equaled the Hollywood Park track record in the 1996 Californian Stakes (grade I), stopping the timer at 1:46.60 for 1 1/8 miles. Phil Leckinger had followed Tinner Way’s career from the chestnut colt’s successful sophomore year in Europe

www.ctba.com


through his triumphant return to the United States. On a whim, he called Harris Farms in Coalinga, where Tinners Way had stood at stud since relocating from Kentucky for the 2000 breeding season, to see if he could broker a deal to buy him from Juddmonte. “I’d never been on the stallion side of the business, so it was more heart than head,” he said. After negotiating for a year, Leckinger and partner Jerry Hardin acquired Tinners Way and took him to stand at Key Ranch in Salado, Texas. Although he was not the commercial success the partners had hoped, the engaging son of Secretariat illuminated the Texas breeding program, and fans flocked to the farm, just to feed him carrots and have their photo taken with him. “A lot of the old man rubbed off on him,” Leckinger said. “He’s a neat horse. Great personality. I think he puts on a good show for people.” At 23, Tinners Way has found a new home where he revels in his new vocation as ambassador of racing. In 2010, the flame-red stallion was relocated to Old Friends near Lexington, a retirement community largely for pensioned stallions. Billed as the “living museum of racing,” the facility enables each old campaigner to enjoy 24/7 turnout in his own paddock with a run-in shed—and plenty of opportunities to charm visitors and roll in the mud. He is a fan favorite at Old Friends, largely because of his royal lineage. Old Friends founder Michael Blowen jokes that the constant comparison with his sire has given Tinners Way a complex. “We’re going to get him a Freudian analyst,” he said. “No matter how many times Tinners says to them, ‘I’ve done a lot on my own. I made more money than my father,’ they still call him ‘Secretariat’s son.’” Across the aisle from Tinners Way is Williamstown, the 23-year-old son of Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew. But it is Tinners Way and dual Whitney Stakes (grade I) winner Commentator who have forged a special bond. “Like clockwork, Tinners comes down and talks to Com-

C O V E R

mentator about 3:30 every afternoon,” Blowen said. “It’s like two old guys meeting at the bar to discuss the day.” Leckinger is pleased that fans are able to visit Tinners Way at Old Friends. “Michael made a compelling case to move him to Old Friends,” he said. “I think Tinners can be more than a resident there. Ambassador is a great word for what he does. This is the next career step for him.” Secretariat’s son Country Side broke his maiden in France then returned to the U. S. where he spent almost his entire racing career in California. Winning only two of 24 starts as a claimer, he was retired to stud near Los Angeles as a six-year-old. That was where Jocelyn Kasmir fell in love with the friendly, Quarter Horse-looking stallion. She and husband Jeff bought the horse, and the three of them relocated to Diamond J Farms in Needville, Texas. Country Side has become Needville’s favorite son. Forty years after Big Red’s Triple Crown, the tiny Texas town hosts a regular stream of Secretariat fans, some of whom aren’t old enough to have witnessed the legendary horse race. “Country Side thinks he’s human, and I hear this about Secretariat offspring,” Jocelyn Kasmir said. “All his offspring are intelligent and fearless. They’re trusting and willing. . .I’ve talked to other people who have Secretariats, and I do believe it’s genetic.” Once & Future King Thirty-four years have passed since a horse (Affirmed) won the Triple Crown—the longest gap in racing history. With Seattle Slew’s death in 2002, racing was left without a living Triple Crown winner for the first time. Secretariat’s blood courses through the veins of today’s Thoroughbreds. Of this year’s top-20 Kentucky Derby contenders, all but six are his descendants. One of them may bring home the silver trophy in his great-granddaddy’s honor. You’ll know him when you see him. He’ll have that look of destiny in his eyes.

CTBA Member Profile

Herman Sarkowsky: A Serious Player For 50-Plus Years

by EMILY SHIELDS

©Benoit

After 35 years as a member of the California Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (CTBA), businessman Herman Sarkowsky is still immensely enjoying his involvement in the “Sport of Kings.” His affiliation with horse racing goes back even further than that; Sarkowsky bought his first “cheap claiming horse,” Forin Sea, in 1960, and has since been to the winner’s circle for some of the game’s biggest events, including the Breeders’ Cup. This year, Sarkowsky is represented by Californiabred gelding Omega Star, winner of Santa Anita Park’s $200,500 Echo Eddie Stakes on March 30. Sarkowsky was born in Germany in 1925, and moved to Seattle in 1934. He graduated from the University of Washington in 1949 and got involved in business, eventually investing in an NBA franchise that became the Portland Trail Blazers, and then becoming the cofounder of the Seattle Seahawks football team. Sarkowsky sold his stake in the team in 1988, shortly before the very best of his horse racing success came along.

Sarkowsky had already had two of his best runners at that point: his Pass the Glass won five graded stakes in 1975 and 1976, before retiring to stud at Martin Wygod’s River Edge Farm which started a long and profitable relationship between the men. Sarkowsky’s homebred daughter of Pirate’s Bounty named Pirate’s Glow, whom he owned in partnership with Wygod, took him to the inaugural Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (grade I) at Hollywood Park in 1984. Infamously, Pirate’s Glow was bumped in the stretch by Fran’s Valentine, who won but was subsequently disqualified. Pirate’s Glow finished her career with earnings of $179,005 and a placing in the grade I Oak Leaf Stakes to her name. The best was still to come, however: Sarkowsky’s homebred Phone Trick daughter Phone Chatter, out of the unraced Pass the Glass mare Passing My Way, took him back to the Breeders’ Cup in 1993. She avenged Pirate’s Glow in the Juvenile Fillies, winning by a head and three lengths over Sardula and future champion Heavenly Prize, respectively. “She was overall Phone Chatter (#6)

Like his sire, Dixie Chatter won the Norfolk Stakes, scoring in the 2007 edition, which was a grade I worth $250,000. He also missed the Triple Crown trail, but came back to win the grade II, $150,000 Arcadia Handicap on the grass in 2009. He retired with earnings of $464,606, and went to stand at River Edge Farm. He has since been moved to Ballena Vista Farm, where he is standing the 2013 season for $5,000. His first foals will debut this year. Wygod is credited with the $60,000 purchase of Pride of Pegasus, a daughter of Fusaichi Pegasus who became the dam of Wygod and Sarkowsky’s latest stakes horse, Omega Star. The Cal-bred debuted at Aqueduct on Dec. 13, 2012, finishing second at 22-1, 10 1/4 lengths ahead of the thirdplaced finisher. Wygod and Sarkowsky brought the son of Candy Ride (Arg) out to California, where he then broke his maiden by three lengths for new trainer John Shirreffs. After finishing second in the $300,500 California Breeders’ Champion Stakes, he took a crack at the Triple Crown trail, finishing seventh in the $300,750 San Felipe Stakes (grade II). Cut back in distance for the 6 1/2-furlong Echo Eddie, Omega Star rallied from fifth in a 10-horse field to score by a nose. This fourth performance at Santa Anita pushed his earnings to $213,250 with two wins and two seconds in five starts. “It’s unfortunate that he’s a gelding,” Sarkowsky lamented. “But we like to take advantage of the Cal-bred bonus program. He will run in the Snow Chief Stakes next.” Sarkowsky loves all of his California success, but the win that stands out most to him is the hometown victory by No Giveaway in the 2005 Longacres Mile (grade III). As an original investor in the company that developed Seattle’s Emerald Downs, and as a longtime Washington resident along with his wife, Faye, Sarkowsky says that the Longacres Mile is the race he wanted most to win. “The horse paid $122,” Sarkowsky recalled. “To me, that was even more exciting than the Breeders’ Cup. I tried to win that race for years and couldn’t do it, and I finally did win it with a homebred. It was such great fun.” Whether it is in California or Washington, look out for horses from the Sarkowsky brand. Year after year, he comes up with serious runners.

the best horse I had,” Sarkowsky said matter of factly. The Richard Mandella-trainee was named the Eclipse Champion Two-Year-Old Filly, retired in 1996 with earnings of $838,742, and would be even more important in the breeding shed. Sarkowsky took Phone Chatter’s Storm Cat daughter, Cat Chat, to the 1999 Keeneland July Select Yearling Sale, where she was hammered down for $1,300,000 to new owner Jayeff B Stables. Cat Chat won the grade II, $150,000 Nassau County Stakes in 2001, defeating the brilliant Xtra Heat, and later went on to produce 2012 grade I winner In Lingerie. Another daughter of Phone Chatter, Mini Chat, would later produce another of Sarkowsky’s top horses, Dixie Chatter. Sarkowsky didn’t have to struggle after the retirement of Phone Chatter, as Cal-bred Supercilious took over where that filly left off. She won the grade II Railbird Stakes in 1996, and retired in 1999 with 10 wins, nine seconds and five thirds in 35 starts for earnings of $843,454. She was honored with the 1995/1996 Valkyr Trophy, and sold to Japan’s Shadai Farm for $635,000 in 2001. Taking up the banner in 1999 was Dixie Union, whom Sarkowsky says was the best racehorse he ever owned. The son of Dixieland Band kicked off his career for Sarkowsky and co-owner Diamond A Racing Corporation with three straight wins, including two grade III events, before winning the grade II, $200,000 Norfolk Stakes over subsequent Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (grade I) winner Anees. Dixie Union finished fifth in that race, and injury prevented him from making the Kentucky Derby prep races that spring. He returned in 2000, to win the grade I, $1,000,000 Haskell Invitational Handicap at Monmouth Park in New Jersey before losing his shoe and finishing fourth in Saratoga’s Travers Stakes (grade I) in New York. Dixie Union concluded his career with a win in Santa Anita’s grade I, $200,000 Malibu Stakes in December of 2000. He retired with seven wins and three seconds in 12 starts and earnings of $1,233,190. Dixie Union went on to be a very promising young sire, but died tragically at the age of 13 in 2010. Before his death, Dixie Union produced another of Sarkowsky and Wygod’s top horses: the aforesaid Dixie Chatter.

it Northridge Farms. Ryan also bought Adrian and Gaynor’s plot in 1952. Northridge Farms greatly expanded his Thoroughbred breeding operations at Ryana Ranch and Lindley Ridge. All three farms were within three miles of each other. Ryan, wife Annette Ryan and business partner Mary Strnad continued boarding and training services and restarted breeding operations, at one point housing 11 stallions. Among the studs who stood at Marwyck/Northridge were five-time leading California sire Alibhai (GB), Australian champion Reading II (Aus), California-bred multiple stakes winners Apple Valley, Blue Reading and Pedigree, and multiple stakes winners Dogaway, Esprit de France (GB), King Saxon, Lucky Mel, Mafosta (Ire), Main Man, Roman Soldier, Saxon, War Glory and the aforementioned The Nut. Notable horses foaled and/or raised on the farm were Apple Valley and Blue Reading, as well as 1954 Florida Derby and Wood Memorial Stakes winner Correlation and 1946 Santa Anita Handicap winner War Knight. The latter’s accomplishment made him the all-time richest Cal-bred and the first to win a $100,000 race. Ryan continued farm operations until 1956, when health reasons compelled him to disperse his Thoroughbred holdings. He died four years later. By then, residential developers had already begun subdivision and construction. The only remaining evidence of Marwyck/Northridge is the main estate Stanwyck sold to Oakie. He grew citrus fruit and bred Afghan Hounds there until his death in 1978. The house was designated the 484th Los Angeles historic-cultural monument in March of 1990. Horne Oakie resided there until 2000, when she donated it to the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. The school in turn sold it to real estate developers who wanted to build 28 single-family homes on the land. When the economic recession halted their plans, former Los Angeles City Councilmember Greig Smith moved to purchase the estate with funds from the California State Quimby Act. The act requires residential developers to set aside parkland or pay a government fee allocated to local parks. The house was secured in 2008, and the remaining land in 2009, for a reported price of $3.35 million. The LA City Department of Recreation and Parks then appointed 11 community members to the Oakridge Estate Park Advisory Board (PAB), including Chairperson Dave Hasson, a Thoroughbred owner. Additionally, The Friends of Oakridge organization helps with outreach and fundraising. President Steve Harris lives in a housing tract where the farm used to be. “(The estate) is a unique site, being 10 acres but surrounded by development,” Harris said. “It would provide the San Fernando Valley and the people of Northridge a location to create a better sense of community.” Pat LoPresti, chair of the PAB’s outreach committee, said everyone’s learning more about the property as they go along. “Even people who did know why the house was here and when it was built had no idea that there was a Thoroughbred breeding

facility attached to it,” she said. “That was a huge eye opener, and everybody’s interested in horses.” The house is almost completely in its original condition aside from stolen doorknobs and chandeliers. It even survived a 6.7 magnitude earthquake in 1994, despite being two miles from the epicenter. The only noticeable damage was two fallen chimneys and a few short cracks in the tennis court. “It gives you an idea of the quality of construction,” Harris said. In December, Councilman Mitchell Englander helped the PAB acquire $1.3 million through Proposition K, a fund for LA parks. The money will become available in July. Hasson said the first step will be to make the house safe enough to host tours and hopefully inspire more support. The next undertaking will be the outdoor areas of what will be called Oakridge Estate Park. It will be a “passive park,” as opposed to the type of park across the street with

baseball fields. The pool will be converted to a fountain and the tennis court will be used as an event space. Most of the current meadow will remain. Hasson said there’s a lot of support for using the location for weddings, business retreats, art shows and other group events. The board also wants the property to have an educational purpose. The lot runs downhill from Devonshire, so they plan to build a watershed demonstration area at the bottom, southwest corner. They also hope to use some areas of the house for educational displays about the San Fernando Valley, Thoroughbred breeding and Hollywood. “I think it’d be a great place for the community to get a grasp of this history in a great setting,” Hasson said. Oakridge Estate supporters will need years and many more dollars to achieve their goals, but they’re not turning back. “The piece of property was isolated for so many years, and that helped preserve it,” LoPresti said. “Now we have a responsibility to continue that preservation process for generations.” To learn more about the development of The Oakridge Estate, go online to the www.theoakridgeestate.org web site.

by RUDI GROOTHEDDE From the moment she debuted at Santa Anita Park on Oct. 2, 2011, California-bred Tiz Flirtatious has been a model of consistency, and her latest effort took her to another level with a victory in the grade II, $150,250 Santa Ana Stakes at Santa Anita Park on March 24. The Pamela Ziebarth homebred has now earned $424,800 from just nine starts which have yielded six wins, including four stakes races, and three placings, including a runner-up finish in her only grade I appearance to date. Twenty-seven days after her winning debut in a six-furlong test on Santa Anita’s main dirt track, Tiz Flirtatious returned to Arcadia for another win by half a length, this time at 6 1/2 furlongs in an allowance race. She then completed her unbeaten three-year-old campaign on Dec. 11, with a 1 1/2-length triumph against Cal-breds in the $85,800 Cat’s Cradle Handicap. Stretching out to 7 1/2 furlongs and changing surfaces to the all-weather Cushion Track strip at Hollywood Park, the home base of her trainer Martin Jones, Tiz Flirtatious defeated next-out stakes winner Chokecherymary and the grade II winner California Nectar while posting a final time of 1:29.33. Her 2012 season began with a promising third-placed finish to subsequent dual grade I winner Include Me Out and grade II winner Great Hot (Brz) in the grade II, $150,000 La Canada Stakes going 1 1/16 miles on the dirt at Santa Anita on Jan. 22. But then she was absent from the races for nearly nine months. However, Tiz Flirtatious was soon back on track with a winning return on Oct. 13, when she defeated the grade Iplaced stakes winner Best Present Ever and nine other Cal-breds in the $100,000 John Deere California Cup Distaff Stakes. She then parlayed this grass debut of hers,

going about 6 1/2 furlongs on Santa Anita’s downhill turf course in 1:11.70, into a second-placed effort behind Better Lucky in Betfair Hollywood Park’s grade I, $250,000 Matriarch at a mile on Nov. 29. Staying on the turf, but this time going 1 1/8 miles at Santa Anita on Dec. 30, Tiz Flirtatious next ran second to Qaraaba (GB) in the grade III, $151,000 Robert J Frankel Stakes before winning again in Cal-bred company in her five-year-old debut. In the grassy $100,500 Valentine Dancer Stakes on Jan. 26, she triumphed by 1 3/4 lengths in 1:35.17 over six opponents, including last year’s grade IIwinning California champion Halo Dolly. Tiz Flirtatious’ first graded stakes win then came in the Santa Ana, where she was ridden for the first time by Julien Leparoux. Though she pulled early, Tiz Flirtatious raced in fifth before making a three-wide bid into to lane to win by a length over dual grade I winner Lady of Shamrock in 1:46.62 for the 1 1/8-mile trip on the grass. “Julien rode a great race. She looked like she wanted to get a little keen and Julien’s just got a great way of getting a horse to relax. I think he fit her real well,” said Marty Jones. “We’ll have to talk with Pam and see what she wants to do, but I think the Gamely (grade I, May 27 at Betfair Hollywood Park) might be a race we’re looking at if everything goes well.” Tiz Flirtatious is by Harris Farms’ Tizbud, a full brother to the 2000 Eclipse Horse of the Year, Tizbud, whom Pam Ziebarth’s late mother Cecilia Straub-Rubens bred and raced. She is the second foal and winner out of the unraced Victory Gallop mare Masquerade Belle, whom Kathy Berkey’s Berkey Bloodstock purchased for $240,000 on Ziebarth’s behalf at the 2003 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

Racing In Southern California

Cal-Breds Close Out Santa Anita In Style

by EMILY SHIELDS A trio of California-breds won stakes races at Santa Anita Park in March and April. Two of the victories came in rich state restricted events for sophomores, while the third was in an open company contest for fillies and mares. A Potential Star Martin Wygod and Herman Sarkowsky have bred another good runner in a long line of classy standouts with Omega Star, who got his first stakes win in the $200,500 Echo Eddie Stakes on March 30. Jockey Joe Talamo guided the gelded son of Candy Ride (Arg) to a dramatic nose victory over 23-1 Fighting Hussar with 128-1 Lovmeister finishing third, resulting in an $886.50 trifecta. Ten horses completed the 6 1/2furlong contest, with the victory timed in 1:17.19. After debuting at Aqueduct in December of last year, Omega Star shipped to California and broke his maiden in his second start, scoring by three lengths on the final day of 2012. In his three-year-old debut, he finished second in the $300,500 California Breeders’ Champion Stakes behind Kentucky Derby prospect Tiz a Minister. After a failed attempt at the Triple Crown trail in the San Felipe Stakes (grade II), where he was seventh, trainer John Shirreffs cut Omega Star back in distance for the Echo Eddie. Omega Star, who is out of the Fusaichi Pegasus mare Pride of Pegasus, will stretch out again in the $300,000

Snow Chief Stakes at Betfair Hollywood Park on April 27. He has now earned $213,250 from a record of two wins and two seconds in five starts. Timing It Right About an hour and a half before Omega Star’s victory, a solid, evenly-matched field of 11 went to the post in the $200,750 Evening Jewel Stakes, contested just three and a half weeks after the race’s millionaire namesake produced her first foal, a filly by Medaglia d’Oro. The 7-2 second choice Doinghardtimeagain found the wire first in the 6 1/2-furlong race, scoring by 3 1/2 lengths in 1:16 flat. She carried jockey Rafael Bejarano to victory over Hail Mary and Cloudy Moon after sitting off the former’s quick early pace. California Breeders’ Champion Stakes winner Qiaona finished fourth, while the 2012 California Champion Two-Year-Old Female, Tilde, trailed the field. It was the second stakes win for Doinghardtimeagain, a Jerry Hollendorfer-trainee. The daughter of Tommy Town Thoroughbreds’ Ministers Wild Cat won the $196,000 Soviet Problem Stakes in December as a juvenile, then finished fourth in a sloppy edition of the California Breeders’ Champion Stakes and second in the $81,850 Sweet Life Stakes against open company. Her record is now three wins and three seconds in seven starts with earnings of $346,270.

Doinghardtimeagain is a homebred for Tommy Town Thoroughbreds and she is out of Conquistador Cielo’s Silver Hawk Lady, a two-time winner who is the dam of a couple of other winners. Strong Family Ties Stepping into stakes company for the third time, Sister Kate got her first black-type win with a score in the $83,600 Santa Lucia Stakes on April 14. Mary Caldwell’s homebred mare had finished third in the $125,000 B. Thoughtful Stakes and fourth in the $68,250 Harvest Stakes in her two prior stakes attempts, both in 2012. Trainer Hollendorfer had the gray or roan five-year-old primed for a big effort in the Santa Lucia, a 1 1/16-mile contest against open company. Sent off at 8-1, Sister Kate under Corey Nakatani stalked in second behind the grade I-placed stakes winner Candrea before overtaking that rival and besting her by three quarters of a length. Sister Glady Oh La finished third in a five-horse field, with the heavily favored Maker Or Breaker checking in fourth. The victory was Sister Kate’s fifth in 14 lifetime starts, with two seconds and four thirds for earnings of $206,984. Sister Kate has the pedigree to be a stakes horse; she is by Ballena Vista Farm’s Benchmark out of the 2005/2006 California Broodmare of the Year, Miss Soft Sell. This makes her a full sister to the multiple grade I-winning millionaire Brother Derek and fellow California champion Don’tsellmeshort, a grade II-placed multiple stakes winner. Both horses were also bred by Caldwell, and are standing at stud in 2013, with Don’tsellmeshort at Running Luck Ranch in California and Brother Derek at Airdrie Stud in Kentucky.

#54 Evening Jewel: A Shining Star

Cal-Bred Millionaires’ Row

by EMILY SHIELDS The Mabees sold Evening Jewel to Tim Kegel for a mere $8,000 at the 2008 Keeneland September Yearling Sale. Kegel later sold the daughter of Northern Afleet privately as a juvenile to the Bralys, who fell in love with her pedigree. The filly was transferred to the barn of longtime family friend James Cassidy, who prepared her for her debut. It took Evening Jewel three tries to break her maiden. She finished sixth, beaten 2 1/2 lengths, in her Del Mar Thoroughbred Club unveiling on Aug. 23, 2009. She resurfaced during the Oak Tree Racing Association meet at Santa Anita Park to be second by three lengths, and finally put it all together at that track to score on Nov. 8, 2009, winning a 6 1/2-furlong contest by a halflength. She was piloted to victory that day by Mike Smith, and stopped the clock in 1:16.80. In an unusual move, Cassidy put Evening Jewel in against males for her next start, an allowance race at Hollywood Park on Dec. 6. Evening Jewel ran quite well, finishing second behind eventual California Champion Two-Year-Old Male and multiple graded stakes winner Caracortado in a six-horse field. Continued on next page

The moving story of Evening Jewel is one of both brilliance and hope. She dazzled in her races and shone brightly in the hearts of her owners, Tom and Marilyn Braly, who got to enjoy their filly during a time when the former was fighting a losing battle with cancer. As if she somehow knew they needed a special lift, Evening Jewel outran all expectations to become the 54th California-bred millionaire. Evening Jewel’s accomplishments weren’t a complete surprise; her pedigree sparkled with Cal-bred success well before she stepped onto the track. Betty and Larry Mabee of Golden Eagle Farm fame bred Evening Jewel, and several generations of her pedigree called their Ramona Farm home. Her dam, Giant’s Causeway’s Jewel of the Night, is a half-sister to the 2008 California Champion Two-Year-Old Female, Saucey Evening, and dual stakes winner Petition the Lady. Their dam, the unraced General Meeting mare Jeweled Lady, is a full sister to $2.8 million-earner General Challenge, who counted the grade Santa Anita Derby, Pacific Classic Stakes and Santa Anita Handicap among his victories, and a half-sister to grade I winner Notable Career. Another full sister, Western Hemisphere, was a two-time stakes winner and grade II-placed.

Evening Jewel, who became the 54th California-bred millionaire with her third-placed finish in the $909,000 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint (grade I) at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, on Novermber 5, 2010, with her first foal, a daughter of Medaglia d’Oro who was born at Taylor Made Farm in Nicholasville, Kentucky, on March 5, 2013.

Cal-Bred Millionaires’ Row Cont’d.

RACE RECORD

From there, she tried stakes company for the first time and won under new pilot Victor Espinoza, taking Santa Anita’s $100,000 California Breeders’ Champion Stakes by three quarters of a length as the fourth wagering choice on Dec. 27. She lost the California Champion Two-Year-Old Female title to Repo, who had won two stakes races in July, but would go on to much bigger and better things in the new year. On Jan. 10, Evening Jewel kicked off her phenomenal threeyear-old campaign with a length loss to Crisp in the grade III, $100,000 Santa Ysabel Stakes. She followed that up with a heartbreaking nose miss to Blind Luck in the grade I, $250,000 Las Virgenes Stakes, defeating Crisp and future dual grade I winner Switch. In that race, Evening Jewel was dismissed as the 18-1 second-longest shot on the board, but bettors wouldn’t make that mistake again as she proved she fit with a class filly like Blind Luck, who already had two prior grade I wins to her credit, and had narrowly missed being named the country’s Champion Two-Year-Old Female in 2009. Rather than stay in Southern California for the Santa Anita Oaks to test Blind Luck again, Cassidy shipped Evening Jewel East to Lexington, Kentucky, and the grade I, $400,000 Ashland Stakes at Keeneland on April 3. The tough field included Eclipse Champion and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies heroine She Be Wild and grade I winner Negligee. Ridden by Kent

Desormeaux and showing an affinity for Keeneland’s all-weather Polytrack surface, Evening Jewel turned them all away, leading throughout to win by a neck over longshot It’s Tea Time, with She Be Wild checking in third. That effort set her up perfectly to attempt to win the grade I, $500,000 Kentucky Oaks on April 30. Other than the heavy favorite Blind Luck, the race was wide open, and proved to be a thriller. Evening Jewel hit the front at the top of the lane, and stretched desperately all the way to the wire, trying to fend off the late charge from Blind Luck. Her old nemesis prevailed, scoring by yet another heartbreaking nose in a finish so close that racing fans at the track had to wait through several slow motion replays and the official photo before knowing the winner. Only a month later, on May 31, Evening Jewel was back in action, but with a twist: she went postward as the favorite in the grade II, $150,000 Honeymoon Handicap on the grass at Hollywood Park. The gutsy filly settled on the lead under Espinoza, and held on after another stretch battle to win by a head over Cozi Rosie, with grade II winner City to City settling for third. On July 25, Evening Jewel was at it again, winning Del Mar’s grade II, $150,000 San Clemente Handicap by three quarters of a length. Her ecstatic owners were not only enjoying their game filly’s exploits and close finishes, but also enjoyed entertaining the Evening Jewel Fan Club, who came to the races sporting bright orange clothing in honor of the Braly’s vivid silks. Tom and Marilyn took care to speak with and thank these admirers, who were in for yet another treat on Aug. 21.

Evening Jewel became only the third sophomore filly to win California Horse of the Year honors, following Windy’s Daughter in 1973 and Cat’s Cradle in 1995. After finishing fifth going down the hillside turf course in Santa Anita’s grade III, $100,000 Monrovia Stakes in her fouryear-old debut on Jan. 2, Evening Jewel rebounded to win the $300,000 Sunshine Millions Distaff Stakes over Amazing and future grade I winner Ultra Blend on Jan. 29. Evening Jewel only made three more starts in her career. After finishing second to Ultra Blend in the $98,000 Valentine Dancer Handicap on Feb. 26, she returned to Keeneland to run fourth in the grade I, $300,000 Vinery Madison Stakes on April 14. Another return to Churchill Downs saw her then finish sixth in the grade I, $345,600 Humana Distaff Stakes on May 7. Following that effort, Evening Jewel was retired with seven wins, six seconds and two thirds in 19 starts for earnings of $1,221,399. Marilyn Braly sold her filly to Oregon residents Aaron and Marie Jones. Evening Jewel now resides at Taylor Made Farm in Nicholasville, Kentucky, where on March 5, 2013, she produced her first foal, a filly by Medaglia d’Oro. Evening Jewel has been bred back to Bernardini for the 2014 season. Few fillies, Cal-bred or otherwise, have ever displayed the type of heart or versatility that Evening Jewel showed during her time on the track. That she was able to bolster her owners during a tumultuous time makes her story that much sweeter.

In the grade I, $300,000 Del Mar Oaks, Evening Jewel would be facing grade I American Oaks winner Harmonious and grade I Santa Anita Oaks winner Crisp, as well as the grade II-winning East Coast invader and future Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf winner Perfect Shirl. The classy Evening Jewel was sent off as the 7-5 favorite in the 1 1/8-mile grassy contest, and she rewarded her backers with another tenacious score, winning by half a length over Harmonious. Both of the Bralys were on hand for the race, which was completed in 1:47.27. On Sept. 2, 72-year-old Tom lost his seven-year battle with cancer. His death seemed to take some of the shine out of his prized filly’s star; in her next start, the grade I, $400,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes at Keeneland, Evening Jewel finished third, 4 3/4 lengths behind Harmonious. She raced one last time in 2010, backing up to a sprint and switching back to dirt in the grade I, $909,000 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint on the dirt at Churchill Downs, where she again finished third but became the 54th Cal-bred millionaire in the process. Her spectacular season saw her win grade I stakes races on both turf and synthetic, with the nose loss in the Kentucky Oaks separating her from both a surface hat-trick and the Eclipse Award for Champion Three-Year-Old Filly. With Blind Luck winning the national award, Evening Jewel was honored as not only California’s Champion Three-Year-Old Female, but also as the state’s Horse of the Year. She bested the eventual six-time grade I winner and future Eclipse Champion Older Male, Acclamation, and her own stablemate The Usual Q.T. for the award.

A Blast From The Past

Settecento: A Run To Glory

by JACKIE BARNES

©B L S photo

Three-time leading California breeders Martin and Pam Wygod have experienced many highs and lows while breeding and racing Thoroughbreds through the years. They have been fortunate enough to campaign such top runners as the 2004 Eclipse Champion Two-Year-Old Filly, Sweet Catomine, dual 2007 grade I winner After Market, the 2009 Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic winner Life is Sweet and, most recently, the 2011 grade I winner Courageous Cat. However one of the lowest points for Marty Wygod came on Nov. 7, 1972 when his close friend Fletcher Jones, the owner of Westerly Stud Farms, died in a plane crash near that farm. Texas-born Jones was an astute businessman who, along with Roy Nutt, founded the computer software company Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) in 1959. Within four years, it was the largest software company in the United States. In 1966, Jones purchased a 3,912-acre property near Santa Ynez that became Westerly Stud Farms. The farm stood such prominent California stallions as Rising Market, Promised Land and Fleet Host. Marty Wygod was a young investment broker who had become involved with CSC in 1964. He and Jones became close friends who shared a love for Thoroughbreds. Wygod became an owner when Jones gifted him his first two Thoroughbreds, Heliotropic and Verification, on his 25th birthday in 1966. During the Westerly Stud Farms dispersal at Hollywood Park in January of 1973, Wygod purchased a three-year-old gray colt named Settecento for $80,000 and his dam Nunzi

Settecento, Marty Wygod’s winner of the 1973 Derby Trial Stakes over Mr. Prospector at Churchill Downs in Kentucky.

38 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED • MAY 2013

Nunzi for $6,200. In total Wygod purchased 12 head for $294,000. Settecento’s two-year-old season had been successful one with two wins from four starts for trainer A. T. “Tommy” Doyle. Eight days after his unplaced debut, he won over a mile in his second start at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club on Sept. 9, 1972. He then made two trips to post in allowance races at Santa Anita Park, winning the second one at 6 1/2 furlongs by six lengths before being sold. The newly turned sophomore colt made his first start for Wygod on Feb. 15, 1973, at Santa Anita where he was beaten a head by subsequent grade III winner Bensadream. Following a fifth-placed finish to track record setter Linda’s Chief in the $56,900 San Jacinto Stakes on March 1, he was sent to New York to join the barn of V. J. “Lefty” Nickerson. In his second of three starts at Aqueduct, Settecento won by four lengths going seven furlongs over a sloppy track on April 4. He was then shipped to Churchill Downs in Kentucky for the 46th running of the $21,000 Derby Trial Stakes at a mile on May 1. During the week of the Derby Trial, all the press was focused on Kentucky Derby favorites Secretariat and Sham. On race day, Settecento caught a break when the track came up sloppy. In a tremendous effort, he went virtually gate-to-wire to defeat the 3-5 favorite Mr. Prospector by 1 1/4 lengths in 1:37. He became the first California-bred to win this race but, more significantly, he defeated a horse who would become one of the most influential sires of all time. Four days later, Settecento ran third to subsequent Jersey Derby winner Knightly Dawn in an allowance race before he returned to New York. In 10 more starts at three, he placed four times, including his final career start at Aqueduct on Nov. 9, when he was claimed by Daybreak Farm for stud duty. As a sire, he ended up having 73 percent starters from foals and 63 percent winners from starters. Settecento was by the 10-time stakes winner Promised Lane who sired more than 25 stakes winners, including the 1966 Derby Trial winner Exhibitionist. His dam Nunzi Nunzi’s first foal was Molly O’Malley, winner of the 1963 Honeymoon Stakes who produced the 1974 stakes winner Gunhilda, dam of dual 1984 stakes winner Cryptarch. The Derby Trial was the second stakes win for Wygod. His first stakes winner was Bad Seed who became the dam of Wygod’s three-time leading California sire Pirate’s Bounty. Settecento’s career totals were a modest 21-4-5-3 and $50,862 in earnings, but his lone black-type victory ensured him a unique place in California’s Thoroughbred history.

Growth Rates In Foals

by HEATHER SMITH THOMAS Foals grow swiftly during the first months of life. Genetics, feed and environment all play a role in growth and skeletal development. W. B. “Burt” Staniar, PhD (Assistant Professor of Equine Nutrition at Penn State) has studied growth of foals all over the world. “The research we’ve been conducting focuses on the first two years of growth, and how nutrition provided by pasture and supplements influence that growth,” says Staniar. “In addition, we are paying more attention to how other variables, such as date of birth, age at weaning and when animals enter training, affect the growth pattern and, ultimately, the athletic potential of the animal.” One of the main issues regarding growth is trying to avoid various developmental problems that can occur. From a research standpoint and a management standpoint, we need a definition of growth. Do we want rapid growth? Maximum growth? Slow growth? What kind of growth will meet our objectives? “I think our objectives in raising a horse are to maximize the opportunity for that animal to realize the athletic potential that’s a part of its genetics. Optimum growth is what we’re looking for, but defining that is difficult. It may be different for each individual—and the end result is often several years down the road. It's hard to determine how growth at three months of age will influence what a foal will be at two or three years of age,” he explains. At many of the breeding farms he worked with, brood-

40 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED • MAY 2013

mares and foals are kept on pasture. Some mares are brought into stalls for foaling, but most foal out in the fields. “One thing we pay close attention to, in the research we’ve been doing (and for the health of the animals), is trying to sort out the relationship between the environment and the animal. By environment I mean the pasture, climate—all the things that surround and affect the animal and its physiology. One of the things we are able to do here is look at the physiologic mechanisms that are a basis for the pasture/animal relationship,” he says. Staniar has done a lot of work examining growth patterns. “The long-term growth pattern for horses has already been well defined. I think of this as their genetic potential, and there are some significant breed differences in that curve, but it’s basically a sigmoid curve. The foals grow in utero—slowly at first and then a period of exponential growth just before birth. After the foal is born, it continues to grow very fast for a while (fastest growth is during the first few weeks after birth) but as the animal matures, the growth slows and then reaches a plateau,” he says. “We are also trying to understand short-term patterns of growth. Long-term patterns are genetic whereas short-term patterns are affected by seasons, environment, etc. The latest NRC (National Research Coucil) update has a good growth curve that characterizes the growth of horses of many breeds. This data was mainly from Thoroughbreds,

www.ctba.com


Quarter Horses, etc., and maybe lacks some of the pony and draft breeds,” says Staniar. But there are some periods during growth where this doesn’t fit, due to short-term growth patterns. These are separate and apart from the genetic patterns, and involve the environmental influence (nurture versus nature). “How does temperature, available feed, weaning, etc., affect patterns of growth, for instance? These environmental influences are probably more important to the horse owner raising foals—in the day-to-day care and management of the foal—than are the long-term growth patterns. So that’s what our research is focused on,” he says. There are many questions. “One is how date of birth affects the foal. If it’s born in January versus April, does this influence pattern of growth? We’ve found that the short-term pattern is very different for a foal born in January versus a foal born in April. Conditions in which they are growing up are different, at different ages. The tricky thing is the intersection between age of the animal and its potential for growth, and the environment at that particular time (feed available, temperature and so on),” he explains. “When you compare the growth of foals born in January to those born in April, the April foals are growing more rapidly at a young age because they are born into a more nutrient-rich environment, with green grass. Foals born earlier will be heavier at that time of year because they are older, but they didn’t grow as fast at that young age.” The researchers study the relationship between the pasture and the animal, looking at growth rate, to see how they can match up where the animal is and its ability to grow. When talking about growth in foals, we need to differentiate between weight and height. “Weight is what we talk about in cattle or other livestock species. Weight is not so important in horses. It plays a role and is one of the factors we look at, but I am more interested in withers height because it’s a closer measure of skeletal development in young horses,” says Staniar. Many breeding farms measure withers height, but you won’t find a growth curve for withers height in the NRC recommendations. There’s not much research that’s looked at growth patterns in terms of withers height, even though it’s what we most often measure. “There are still questions we have no answers for. We think we want a smooth growth curve in a young horse. We think this is best because we don’t want large deviations in the short-term patterns. We don’t want the young horse to drop off in growth at weaning, for instance,” he says. “Depending on the breed and objectives of the owners, foals are weaned as young as three months of age and as old as nine months. There are numerous variables to consider,

www.ctba.com

but one of the most important is the environment into which you are weaning the foal. If a January foal is weaned in the middle of a hot summer—when pasture conditions are poor—this may have a negative impact on growth. By contrast, an April-born foal, weaned in early fall when pasture may be re-growing, will likely continue a strong pattern of growth” he says. By six months of age, a considerable portion of the foal’s diet is already provided by pasture. “The manager needs to pay attention to the horses and the environment, and consider how best to fit the horse to its environment to optimize health and performance,” Staniar points out. “We still see a decrease in growth during weaning, because the animals are stressed, and though conditions for forage in October may be good, from that point on the pasture quality declines as we move into winter,” he says. Environmental conditions change and the foal’s body starts to conserve energy for thermal regulation (to keep warm) and for building a winter hair coat. There’s not as much energy put toward growth. It’s getting colder, pastures are declining in quality, and all signals to the animal are that the environment is changing and it needs to get ready for winter. “In all the growth data I’ve looked at, there’s a decrease in growth rates during winter months, with February usually being the lowest for horses raised in the northern hemisphere,” says Staniar. “The young horse’s body is conserving energy for other purposes and decreasing growth rate. But the decrease at this time represents an opportunity for managers. If you realize this will occur, you can provide the animal with more energy, and an environment that doesn’t allow growth to decrease quite so much,” he says. You can counterbalance some of the negative effects of that first winter for the weanling and make up for some deficiencies in the environment, such as providing good quality hay. “The thing that’s interesting is that if a foal really drops off in growth (such at weaning, when he’s stressed and especially if forage availability and temperature are less optimal) with all of these stresses happening at once, he makes up for it later. The more an animal decreases growth at this point and conserves energy (for maintenance instead of growth), when spring comes and there’s good grass again, the more the animal tries to catch up,” he says. This growth spurt is called compensatory growth and happens in all species. The more the young animal decreased growth through the first winter, the more likely there will be a greater increase in growth the next spring. And it is this type of growth spurt that has been indirectly linked with develContinued on next page

If you can compensate for the decrease during winter and think about it in spring (not complicating a growth spurt by feeding high energy feeds at that time), this can smooth out the peaks and valleys of the young horse’s growth and potentially help minimize some of the risk for DOD (developmental orthopedic disease). “This bumpy pattern of growth may or may not be detrimental. In extremes, it may play a role in skeletal abnormalities. One study from the 1940s and ’50s looked at wild horses’ patterns of growth. The young ones grow slower in winter and speed up in spring. These are normal cycles,” says Staniar. But fast growth in a wild horse is not as extreme as that of a domestic youngster on lush pasture, or one that’s being fed grain and other concentrates to push for faster growth in order to get it ready for early training. Wild horses mature more slowly in a natural environment. “We must be careful in making a comparison of wild horses and domestic horses, in regards to what we expect from our top athletes,” he says. Subjected to completely natural conditions (harsh winters and intermittent nutrient levels or shortage of available feed), a horse might not be able to develop full potential as a top athlete. “Breeders should pay attention to growth rates, measuring weight and skeletal development. You could do this as often as every two weeks, but at minimum I’d recommend taking measurements once a month. A weight tape isn’t as accurate as a scale, but can be a good estimate if you’re just looking for changes. There are also some good equations available for weight estimations, for growing foals,” he says. Problems can occur in foals if we try to maximize growth, and some foals (either due to genetics and/or environment) tend to grow too fast. The first step in dealing with this is awareness. If in your breeding decisions you’ve chosen a large mare and a large stallion and you expect the foal to grow rapidly, you should closely monitor that growth. “There’s a perceived connection between rapid growth and developmental problems. The mistake some people make is to take the animal off all energy to try to halt the rapid growth. It’s more important to look at the big picture, and the growth of that animal and what your objectives are over the first two years—and how you can try to moderate some of those short term changes,” he says. “You don't want to hinder the growth rate; you just want to maintain the genetic potential and long-term growth curve, with as few deviations as possible. You try to smooth out slows and spurts, and plan ahead for proper feed and management,” he explains. “If you bred a mare and stallion that both grew very rapidly and both showed signs in the past of some kind of DOD, you’d have to be even more careful. This match-up could be a disaster waiting to happen, but maybe you went ahead with this breeding because those individuals were extremely suc-

42 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED • MAY 2013

cessful. So you gamble. If you are aware of the problems, however, when that foal hits the ground you’ll be doing everything you can to reduce the risk of DOD,” he says. “You would not feed that foal a lot of high-energy feed. You would closely monitor how rapidly it’s growing, how much nutrition it’s getting from the dam, and feed accordingly. There is some evidence that moderate exercise might also be beneficial for these foals, to help regulate growth and aid proper development,” says Staniar. If you pay attention to that animal, and know it is at risk, you might be able to catch any problems early on, and avoid short-term deviations in growth patterns. “As milk production in the mare decreases, or you are getting ready to wean, this may be the time to creep feed with something that’s not a high energy feed—something more like you’d feed an adult horse that’s not growing. This kind of feed would not provide as much protein and energy as the typical creep feed,” he explains. Then as you wean, and the foal is adjusting to a nonmilk diet, this supplemental feed can help ensure that he doesn’t have nutritional stress at weaning time. “Choose a low-stress weaning strategy. Follow up with this kind of feed through winter so the weanling maintains growth (rather than dropping off) and when spring arrives pay close attention to what he’s eating. How much time will this yearling be spending out on pasture with access to high energy lush grass?” If the yearling doesn’t have access to pasture you can feed good quality hay but not one with high energy density. “This way you could maintain a smoother growth curve. As you manage that animal you have some influence on growth even though you have no control over temperature changes in winter/summer. You can pay attention to type and quantity of feed, and the environment you are keeping him in. You have control over the nutrition, and other management aspects such as exercise,” says Staniar. You may think that the foal, weanling or yearling out in the field is getting exercise, but if it’s living by itself it may not get as much exercise as it would if it were running around with a buddy. “In a field of 10 mares and foals, the foals play together. If there’s just one mare and foal, they don’t run around as much. This kind of exercise is important, developmentally. Maybe you could take the mare and foal for a walk, or pony the foal while riding the mare,” he says. “There are also ways to exercise a weanling or yearling. You don’t want to overdo it—but make sure they get a proper amount of exercise. The young horse’s muscles and skeleton are all making decisions for growth based on how much and what kind of stress they are under. This stimulates how much they grow and how much extra-cellular matrix the bones should lay down,” he explains. Exercise is crucial for building strong bones. You walk a fine line, which requires moderation instead of extremes, to strengthen the growing tissues rather than damaging them or not giving them enough stress to optimize their growth and strength.

The Cal-Bred Incentive Program

California-Bred Incentive Awards

Questions and answers concerning California-breds and California’s lucrative incentive awards program, which was responsible for breeders, owners and stallion owners collecting more than $10 million for 2012. 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 California-bred get have won a qualifying race or have finished first, second, or third in a stakes race in the state or any graded stakes race within the United States during the year. Qualifying races are any non-claiming races, including maiden allowance and starter allowance races, with a purse of at least $15,000, and open non-maiden claiming races with a claiming price of $40,000 or

www.ctba.com

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 year 2010 or any subsequent calendar year in which he stood at stud and fathered the participant in the race. If a sire dies in this state in the year 2010 or any subsequent year and stood his last season at stud in this state, or was standing at stud in this state on the date of his death in the year 2010 or any subsequent year, he shall thereafter continue to be considered an eligible Thoroughbred stallion regarding a race participant fathered by him in that season. 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 2013 being paid by March 31, 2014. The stallion awards are paid prior to March 31, 2014. Continued on next page

California-Bred Incentive Awards Cont’d. 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 248 additional racing opportunities and over $14 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 almost $4.4 million in 2012 and will grow significantly through the creation of the Golden State Series. Also, in 2014, California Cup XXIV will be held at Santa Anita Park on a date to be announced. Part of the funding for California Cup XXIV 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.

46 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED • MAY 2013

What is the definition of a California-sired horse? A “California-sired horse” is a Thoroughbred that was conceived in California by a registered California Stallion. A California-sired horse is only eligible for entry in races restricted to California-bred or California-sired horses and is not eligible for any breeder or owner awards, except the maiden bonus awards. 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? Contact Doug Burge or Mary Ellen Locke at the CTBA offices across the street from the Santa Anita Park racetrack in Arcadia at the address and phone numbers listed below.
