Thursday, February 27, 2014 Ambitious Brew Wins Sensational Star Stakes

Poker Bills Would Exclude Racing Two Internet poker bills have been introduced in the California Legislature for consideration this year, but neither includes the racing industry on the short list of entities eligible for licensing. Josh Rubenstein, Senior Vice-President for development of Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and spokesman for a coalition of racing interests, said the bills were disappointing in that regard but were by no means the final word. “That’s the initial language. But the way bills start out and the way they finish, as we have seen, are usually quite different,” Rubenstein said by phone February 26. The measures were among hundreds introduced February 21 in time to meet the submission deadline for 2014 Legislation. Senate Bill 1366, authored by Sen. Lou Correa, and Assembly Bill 2291, by Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer, received their first readings on Monday, February 24. —continued at www.BloodHorse.com, By Jack Shinar PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This article has been republished with permission from www.BloodHorse.com

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 2013 but is standing in the state in 2014, a double dagger (‡) that he is not standing in California in 2014 but will stand in the state in 2015 and in  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-yearolds. 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.

As Strong As Ever by RUDI GROOTHEDDE A quarter-century of auctions under the Barretts banner will be celebrated on Monday, March 3, when the Pomonabased company hosts its 25th Anniversary March Select Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training. Back on March 5 and 6, 1990, Barretts Equine Sales hosted its inaugural sale and the Hinds Pavilion at Fairplex will once again be the venue for this year’s offering of juveniles by Barretts Sales & Racing. Twenty-five years ago, 196 of the 270 two-yearolds through the sales ring sold for $16,405,000, while 2014 will see a catalog of 140 entries, 14 of whom are California-breds, hoping to improve on last year’s totals for 61 juveniles sold of $8,751,000 in gross receipts and average and median prices of $143,459 and $100,000, respectively. The 2013 buyback rate was 33.7 percent. Last year’s $675,000 sale-topper Corfu has had a busy time since then, winning the Saratoga Special Stakes (grade II) in stakes record time and earning $214,200 overall before retiring to stud at Bridlewood Farm in Florida for this year’s breeding season. Other graduates of this annual March auction who have also performed well during the last 12 months include: the 2013 Champagne Stakes (grade I) winner Havana, a $575,000 purchase last year who has since earned $708,000; the $$422,140-earner Gervinho, a grade II winner of 2013 whose $120,000 reserve was not achieved in 2012; and Sum of the Parts, sold for $150,000 three years ago and now a dual graded stakes winner of $806,543. Following the Training Preview starting at 10:00 am on Thursday, Feb. 27, this year’s sale will commence at 2:00 pm on March 3, featuring sire power second to none. Besides offering sons and daughters of eight of last year’s top 10 national sires, namely Awesome Again, Giant’s Causeway, Harlan’s Holiday, Kitten’s Joy, Macho Uno, Malibu Moon, Unbridled’s Song and War Front, the catalog also boasts a filly by the internationally renowned Galileo.

Weekly Update CHRB Continued from page 1

The audio of this entire board meeting is available on the CHRB Website (www.chrb.ca.gov) under the webcast link. In brief: • The board approved the application for the Los Angeles Turf Club to conduct a race meet at Santa Anita Park from April 25 through June 29, essentially a continuation of the current meet in Arcadia that runs through April 20, with a four-day break in between. The application was approved pending clarification of the schedule of stake races historically run in Southern California. • Several commissioners reported on working with racetracks on the development of fire evacuation plans as well as fire prevention measures. These efforts will continue and their progress will be detailed in public reports. • The board approved for 45-day public notice a proposed regulatory amendment to eliminate the maximum daily restriction on samples that may be tested and to give the CHRB access to horses stabled at non-CHRB regulated facilities by requiring them to be registered in advance of racing and thereby subject to out-of-competition testing. • The board voted to direct portions of the existing takeout from exotic wagering pools to help fund workers’ compensation programs for thoroughbreds, quarter horses, standardbreds and fairs, within the limits authorized by statute. • The board voted to deduct a portion of market access fees generated by Advance Deposit Wagering in Southern California to help offset stabling and vanning expenses at southern racetracks and training facilities, as permitted by statute. • The board authorized the distribution of $37,403 in race day charity proceeds by the Los Angeles Turf Club II to 13 beneficiaries. • The board approved a two-year license for the Game Play Network Inc. to conduct Advance Deposit Wagering once they provide several outstanding items required of all ADW companies. While Game Play will operate a traditional ADW website for all, the major focus will be to attract non-racing fans that play online games.—From the CHRB

Thoroughbred Hoof Care: Foal To Racehorse To Sport Horse Thoroughbreds are born to run. But to satisfy this need for speed, the horse must have a strong foundation on which to gallop—we're talking about his hooves. South African farrier Robbie Miller, ASF, has decades of experience trimming and shoeing race- and sport horses. He shared his hoof care suggestions with industry members during the 2014 Cape Breeders Club seminar, held January 27-28 in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Starting with foal feet, he followed the horse's natural progression to the sales, races, and, ultimately, retirement from the track.—continued at www.BloodHorse.com, By Alexandra Beckstett PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This article has been republished with permission from www.BloodHorse.com

Moving Day Coming Soon For Native Diver Of all the loose ends left by the closure of Hollywood Park, none has generated more attention than the remains of the great Native Diver.

From San Luis Rey Downs To The Winner's Circle

It’s not like the place wasn’t already on the map. San Luis Rey Downs was built in 1969. But the cluster of runners that vanned up to win at Santa Anita Park last weekend helped poke a hole in the idea that the newly invigorated training center is located somewhere near the ends of the earth. It’s not, although you can see it from there. Last Saturday, Peter Miller’s San Luis Rey stable cracked with On the Backstreets (by Street Boss, out of a Springsteen classic) in the $81,650 Sweet Life Stakes down the hillside turf course, then came right back on Sunday to win the $97,450 Baffle Stakes, also down the hill, with the Tribal Rule gelding Red Outlaw. —continued at http://www.drf.com, By Jay Hovdey PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Republished with permission from www.DRF.com
