Consistent Ultra Blend held off the late challenge of 2010 California-bred horse of the year Evening Jewel to win the $100,000 Valentine’s Dancer Handicap on February 26 for state-bred fillies and mares, beating a field decimated by seven scratches from the race that was moved from the turf to dirt.

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 2010 but is standing in the state in 2011, a double dagger (‡) that he is not standing in California in 2011 but will stand in the state in 2012 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-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.

She has eight wins in 18 starts, earnings of $460,646 and was coming off a third in the January 29 Sunshine Millions Distaff. Ultra Blend ran the mile in 1:35.58 and won by 1 1/2 lengths at odds of 6-5. Evening Jewel, the 4-5 favorite, was second and La Nez was third with Camille C last in the fourhorse field.

Quick Enough ran the 6 1/2 furlongs down the hillside turf course in 1:13.52 and won by one-half length over favored Sunshine Millions Sprint winner Amazombie, with 2009 Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner Dancing in Silks third. Quick Enough went off the 4-1 second choice.

Barretts March Catalog Online The Usual Q. T. To Miss Kilroe The grade I stakes winners The Usual Q. T. and Sidney’s Candy will miss expected starts in the $300,000 Frank Kilroe Mile at Santa Anita Park on March 5 because of minor injuries, their trainers said. An abscess will keep The Usual Q. T. from the Kilroe, trainer Jim Cassidy ©Heacox said. A five-year-old who won the The Usual Q. T. grade I Hollywood Derby in 2009 and the grade I Eddie Read Stakes at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club meet last year, The Usual Q. T. was second in the Sunshine Millions Turf here January 29. Cassidy said The Usual Q. T. will be pointed to the $150,000 Arcadia Stakes over a mile on April 9. Sidney’s Candy is suffering from a quarter crack in his right front foot, trainer John Sadler said Wednesday. The grade I Kilroe Mile was scheduled to be Sidney’s Candy’s first start since an easy win in the grade III Sir Beaufort Stakes on December 26. “It’s not that bad, but it’s cost me the training I think I need for a grade I race,” Sadler said of the injury. “It’s bad timing.” Owned by Jenny Craig, Sidney’s Candy has won six of 11 starts and five stakes, including the Santa Anita Derby last April. 4 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED WEEKLY • March 3, 2011

Weekly Update What The CTBA PACs Do For You The California Thoroughbred Breeders Association’s State, Federal and Local Political Action Committees have been responsible for a tremendous amount of positive legislation for racing and breeding Thoroughbred horses both in California, and on a national level. • The CTBA and many others successfully lobbied to achieve the passing of a very significant bill for all of racing, SB 1072, which boosted overnight purses through an increase of takeout on exotic wagers of two to three percent. CTBA was concerned with increasing takeout, and it is important to note that no increases were authorized for win, place, and show wagers. The only increases come from exotic wagering (Exactas, Trifectas, Superfectas, and other multiple bets). All of the proceeds can only go into overnight purses. Normally increased revenue is divided up between multiple parties, but due to industry cooperation, all of this incremental revenue goes to purses. The horse industry was very concerned that without increased overnight purses, the overall horse industry would continue to decline in California. • It is estimated that this will add approximately $25 million to $30 million in additional purse money per year. • CTBA was also successful with AB 2972, which revises the definition of an eligible Thoroughbred stallion as it relates to the Stallion Awards Program. Previously an eligible Thoroughbred stallion must have been continually present in the state during certain dates of the calendar year in which the qualifying race was conducted and if the stallion left the state and did not return, all stallion awards were forfeited. Under this legislation, an eligible Thoroughbred stallion that was present in the state during the calendar year that he stood stud will now qualify for awards regardless if the stallion subsequently left

the state. Only foals conceived in California would be eligible. CTBA believes this will help ensure that California continues to attract promising stallions. • In 2009 CTBA sponsored AB 1578, which provides for extremely lucrative bonuses for California-bred maidens by re-allocating a small portion of existing incentive award money and an additional matching amount from Thoroughbred Owners of California (TOC). The result is a 50 peercent increase in the number of maiden special weight winners over the previous year, yielding huge benefits to the owners and breeders of Cal-breds. All CTBA PAC funds are allocated to campaign contributions, other PACs that benefit the industry and for Legislative advocate expenses. • No stallion owner, farm owner or breeder receives PAC funds. Some stallion owners may show up as donors to the fund as the seasons they donate are technically political contributions. • Charges to the contrary are untrue. • PAC Funds are utilized for industry legislative services. • The CTBA contracts with a Legislative Consultant to verify that all PAC contributions comply with the law and that all required reporting takes place. The CTBA PACs are funded through the Stallion Season Telephone Auction, held annually before the start of the breeding season through the generosity of owners that donate seasons to their stallions. Plus individual owners and breeders also contribute to the fund. For more information on the CTBA PACs, email General Manager Doug Burge at dburge@ctba.com or President Leigh Ann Howard at vcfarm@aol.com or call the CTBA office at (626) 4457800.

CTBA Working On Cal Cup The California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA) is working with Santa Anita Park and the Thoroughbred Owners of California (TOC) to ensure the continuation of California Cup this year. “We believe we can jointly come to an agreement to hold such an important day of racing for the California breeding program,” said Doug Burge, the CTBA’s Executive Vice President and General Manager. Since its inception in 1990, Cal Cup has been held during the Oak Tree Racing Association meeting at Santa Anita, except for 2010, when the Oak Tree Meet and Cal Cup were held at Hollywood Park because of safety concerns over Santa Anita’s all-wheather. That surface has since been replaced by traditional dirt. On February 17, the autumn racing dates previously granted to Oak Tree were awarded to Santa Anita by the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB). Cal Cup is a series of stakes races worth nearly $1 million run exclusively for California-bred and California-sired horses.

Santa Anita To Host ‘Beat Cancer’ Event Santa Anita Park and the City of Hope have announced a partnership that will unite the track’s racing fans and the California racing industry in the fight against cancer by presenting the first-ever “On-Track to Beat Cancer” event at Santa Anita on closing day, April 17. “We are thrilled to be able to announce this partnership and to invite the public to join the racing industry, The City of Hope, and Santa Anita for an inspirational walk down the stretch following the last race here on closing day,” said Santa Anita vice president of marketing, Allen Gutterman, February 18. “Through this partnership, we hope to be able to help the City of Hope in their efforts to fight and cure women’s cancers, in particular. For anyone who has ever wanted to walk down the storied Santa Anita stretch, where so many champions have run, this will be an unforgettable day. “The City of Hope has asked that we encourage all participants to wear purple, which is the official color for the Women’s Cancers, Women’s Cure program. We will have a purple logoed t-shirt for sale commemorating the event.” Gutterman noted that following the last race on closing day, the quarter-mile walk will be open to all segments of the California racing industry and to the public. “We are inviting the Thoroughbred Owners of California (TOC), the California Thoroughbred Trainers (CTT), the California Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (CTBA), the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB), handicappers, racing fans, unions, farms, vendors, media, other tracks, and racing associations and anyone at all who loves horse racing to take the walk.” Bo Derek, a commissioner on the CHRB, has agreed to be a walk leader. She’ll be followed by other celebrities, cancer survivors, members of the public, and representatives of the entire racing industry in the walk from the top of the stretch to the finish line. “We believe this is a remarkable way to end our meet, knowing that we’re 8 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED WEEKLY • March 3, 2011

supporting research to find a cure for cancer and doing something good,” Gutterman said. “We have great fans and great horsemen and a ‘Great Race Place’ for a late afternoon walk. For sure, all of us, in one way or another, have been touched by cancer.” “We’re grateful for the tremendous support from Santa Anita Park and its community of horse racing fans and supporters,” said Steve Martin, associate vice president of marketing for the City of Hope. “This special day marks the beginning of City of Hope and Santa Anita’s combined efforts in ridding cancers for all women.” Anyone making a minimum $10 donation to The City of Hope on closing day will be eligible to walk on the track. Fans are encouraged to bring signs and banners, create teams, take photos and dedicate the walk to cancer survivors or to the memory of loved ones who have succumbed to or who are battling cancer. “We’d like to set a Guinness Book of Records mark for the most humans ever to walk in unison on a Thoroughbred track,” said Gutterman. “We don’t know if such a record actually exists, but, if it doesn’t, we’ll set the standard.” The City of Hope will also be hosting ancillary events at Santa Anita on closing day. A Wellness Center will be erected in the infield, featuring blood pressure exams, healthy food demos, bone marrow transplant updates, and cancer screenings. Doctors and nurses will be present to facilitate those who wish to participate. Santa Anita’s infield area will also offer fans live bands, family fun events, food trucks and VIP buffet tents.
