Closing Date For Entries Is April 30 For The CTBA NorCal Yearling Sale The 2011 Northern California Yearling Sale will be held Tuesday, August 16, at the Alameda County Fairgrounds. The closing date for entries is Saturday, April 30. The future of the sale is dependent on the interest/support from owners and consignors. For more information, please contact Cookie Hackworth,

California Thoroughbred Breeders Association Sales Coordinator, at cookie@ctba.com or (800) 573-2822 ext. 243. Since the sale returned under the direction of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association in 2004, it has produced stakes winners such as: Bai and Bai, an earner of $724,983; grade II winner Sierra Sunset; and grade III winner Autism Awareness.

Nominations Close For Gold Rush XII This Friday, April 1 California’s best homegrown runners will be on display again at Gold Rush XII, an $805,0000 showcase event to be held on Saturday, April 23, during the opening weekend of the Hollywood Park Spring/Summer meeting. Four black-type stakes races are on tap, including the featured $150,000 Snow Chief Stakes for three-year-olds going 1 1/8 miles. Last year’s California Champion Two-Year-Old Male, Bench Points, would be a likely favorite if entered in the Snow Chief. However, he is currently headed to the grade I, $1 million Santa Anita Derby on April 9, in the hopes of earning a berth into this year’s $2 million Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. A chestnut son of Benchmark, Bench Points has won four of his five starts and earned $218,280. If Bench Points sits out, the race becomes a more wide open affair. Although $100,000 California Breeders’ Champion Stakes winner Thirtyfirststreet has not started since finishing fourth in the grade II, $250,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes on February 12, he has been working steadily at Santa Anita Park. Burns and Gab Power, who each won during the Santa Anita meet, are potential entrants as well.

The $125,000 Melair Stakes for sophomore fillies will be run over a distance of 1 1/16 miles. Another Californiabred champion, California Nectar, could meet a field that includes the Ron McAnally-trained Sugarinthemorning. California Nectar defeated $1,000,000 Kentucky Oaks prospect Zazu in the grade II, $150,000 Santa Ynez Stakes while Sugarinthemorning has won on both dirt and all-weather tracks. Both fillies won over Hollywood Park’s main track during the Oak Tree Racing Association meet in 2010. The brilliant sprinter Goggles McCoy could face a contentious field in the $125,000 Tiznow Stakes. A winner of five of seven starts in his career, Goggles McCoy recently defeated $1,552,291-earner Bold Chieftain in an allowance race at Golden Gate Fields on March 13. He will face Mobilized, who finished third in the Tiznow last year, as well as Earnednevergiven, a son of Cee’s Tizzy who has earned $334,240. In the $100,000 Sensational Star Handicap on February 27, Earnedneverigven finished fourth, beaten by Quick Enough, Amazombie and Dancing in Silks. While Quick Enough ran in the Dubai $1 million Al Quoz Sprint, this year’s $200,000 Continued on page 4

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.

Price Reduced For Microchips The Jockey Club recently lowered the price of microchips from $20 to $10. Though not a requirement for Thoroughbred registration and participation is voluntary, microchips are valuable as a secondary means of identification to support genetic testing and traditional markings-based procedures. They provide an additional layer of confidence when identifying Thoroughbreds at farms, veterinary clinics, transportation centers, horse sales and racetracks. 4 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED WEEKLY • March 30, 2011

Microchips can be ordered through Interactive Registration at registry.jockeyclub.com. Once implanted, the microchips can be reported through the site as well. The Jockey Club offers LifeChip® microchips, which are ISO 11784-compliant and consistent with those used by international Thoroughbred stud book authorities. For additional information about micro-chipping, including a fact sheet and FAQ, click here. www.ctba.com


Weekly Update Evening Jewel, Blind Luck And Switch Eye Apple Blossom Three California-based fillies and mares who have won grade I races, including one champion, are bound for the $500,000 Apple Blossom Invitational at Oaklawn Park on April 15. Blind Luck, the champion three-year-old filly of 2010, is part of a traveling group expected to include Evening Jewel and Switch. Blind Luck won the grade I Kentucky Oaks last year. On Thursday, Evening Jewel worked six furlongs in 1:12.80 at Santa Anita. “I worked her in company to get her race ready,” trainer Jim Cassidy said. “I think I might do it against next work and then give her an easy work before she ships.” The winner of the Sunshine Millions Distaff in January and two grade I races last year, Evening Jewel was second in the Valentine Dancer Handicap for statebreds on February 26.

Switch, beaten a nose by Miss Match in the grade I Santa Margarita Invitational on March 12, is scheduled to work this weekend. Switch won two grade I sprints earlier at this meeting – the La Brea Stakes in December and the Santa Monica Stakes in January. Blind Luck is back at trainer Jerry Hollendorfer’s stable at Santa Anita after finishing second to top Apple Blossom contender Havre de Grace in the Azeri Stakes at Oaklawn Park on March 19. Blind Luck was scheduled to resume training this weekend. —www.DRF.com, by Steve Andersen PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This article has been republished with permission from www.DRF.com

Stronach-MI Developments Swap Approved Shareholders of MI Developments on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved a plan that will allow its chairman and chief executive, Frank Stronach, to swap his supervoting shares for all of the company’s racing and gambling assets, including Santa Anita Park and Gulfstream Park. The deal was approved by nearly 100 percent of the votes cast by qualified shareholders in three of the four voting blocs, according to the company, and by 86 percent of the voters in a fourth class. With the approval, the deal will be sent to an Ontario Superior Court of Justice for review on March 31. If the court approves the deal, it could close by June 30. Under the deal, Stronach would give up control of MI Developments by swapping his supervoting stock and $20 million in cash for the racing and gambling assets. Although the stock represents 1 percent of the nominal equity value of the company—or approximately $12.8 million –

Dr. John Woolsey Jr. Passes At 87 Veterinarian Dr. John H. Woolsey, Jr., a member of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association since 1964, passed away at the age of 87. One of his loves was horse racing and he and his former wife, Jackie, had much success in the field. A few of their better remembered runners were Raise Your Skirts, Grenzen and Ubetido. He leaves five children, five step-children, 14 grandchildren, two great grand-children, and wife Linda.

the shares control 57 percent of the voting power. The deal will allow Stronach to take private control of Santa Anita and Golden Gate Fields in California; Gulfstream and an attached casino in Florida; the Palm Meadows training center in Florida; a 50 percent stake in Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course in Maryland; Portland Meadows in Oregon; the XpressBet account-wagering company; the bet-processing company AmTote; and a halfshare in the horserace broadcasting network HRTV. The assets were valued at between $585 million and $730 million by a firm that evaluated the deal for the company. Many shareholders of MI Developments have been critical of the assets as a drag on the company’s earnings.—www.DRF.com, by Matt Hegarty PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This article has been republished with permission from www.DRF.com

California Group Seeks To Represent Horsemen A group of horsemen in California has formed a new organization whose goal is to become the official representative of horsemen in the state. The California Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association (CTHA) was officially announced in a March 28 release. It says its objective is to “unify the horsemen into one powerful, cohesive, transparent, and pro-active unit,” and that it will move to have the current representative—the Thoroughbred Owners of California (TOC)—decertified. Original principals of the CTHA are J. F. Ernenwein, Gloria Haley, Mike Harrington, Aase Headley, Roger Licht, Henry Moreno, John Sadler, George Schmitt, Cory Wellman and David Wilson. The CTHA in its release took to task the TOC, representatives of which couldn’t be immediately reached for comment. “The industry knows that change is needed,” Licht said in a statement. “The CTHA is committed to providing leadership that recognizes its fiduciary responsibility, as well as engaging the entire racing community in strategic long-term approaches aimed toward resurrecting California horse racing.” The release makes no mention of the California Thoroughbred Trainers (CTT), which also has sought a larger voice in racing in the state. California law permits only one organization to be the horsemen’s official representative in matter such as contract negotiations. —www.bloodhorse.com, by bloodhorse staff.

CTBA.com, the official web site of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA), encourages breeders to submit photos of newly arrived foals for posting on the site. Digital photos will be accepted and should be sent as email attachments, accompanied by the names of the sire, broodmare, broodmare sire, breeder and foaling date. Submit Your 2011 Foal Photo to ctbaken@aol.com

On March 27, 1994, Halloween Treat, a son of Pirate’s Bounty, won the $65,000 Zany Tactics Stakes for three-year-olds at Santa Anita Park, with Royal Issue second and College Town finishing third in a field of nine. Halloween Treat was trained by Dan Hendricks and ridden by Kent Desormeaux. He ran the 6 1/2-furlongs on a fast track in 1:16 1/5 and won by a head at odds of 4-5. Halloween Treat was the first of 10 foals out of the Naskra mare Halloween Baby, who also foaled Snow Chief Stakes winner Pumpkin House and stakes-producing mare Renaissance Woman. The Zany Tactics was Halloween Treat’s third win in six starts. He placed in two other stakes and finished his career with seven wins in 38 starts and earnings of $194,419.

Weekly Update AHC Annual Meeting To Include Issues Forum “Congress on a Diet: What It Means for the Horse Industry” will be the theme for the annual National Issues Forum sponsored by the American Horse Council. This year’s National Issues Forum will be held June 21 in Washington, D.C. during the AHC’s annual meeting, which runs from June 19-22 at the Washington Court Hotel. The annual meeeting will also include an update on the national equine health initiative, the Congressional reception, and the annual Congressional Ride-In. This year’s meeting will also see the return of the AHC’s Breed Roundtable that brings together leaders of horse associations to discus common issues. The AHC’s various committees, including the Unwanted Horse Coalition, will also meet to discuss issues affecting the equine community. “The highlight of this year’s forum will be presentations from Members of Congress, staff, and federal regulatory agencies on the new fiscal realities in Washington.” said AHC president Jay Hickey. “They will discuss how Congress’ efforts to deal with the country’s deficits may result in cut-backs to federal programs and spending that could affect the horse industry. There is a new paradigm in Washington that will affect all American industries, including the horse industry.” The Breed Roundtable allowed leaders of horse organizations involved in various disciplines to visit with each other and discuss issues of common concern. According to a release, it was reinstituted this year by the AHC board because of the important issues facing the horse industry. There will also be an update on the national equine health initiative.

“This initiative resulted from the USDA-AHC hosted workshop at last year’s National Issues Forum, which provided an opportunity for the horse industry, key federal and state authorities, and others to discuss a coordinated approach to the handling of serious infectious equine diseases that threaten the health of our horses and the commercial health of the industry,” said Hickey. The annual Congressional Ride-In will occur Wednesday, June 22. The Ride-In allows members of the horse community to meet with their elected representatives and their federal officials to discuss important issues affecting them. All members of the horse community are encouraged to participate, even if they don’t attend the AHC convention. “The Ride-In puts a face on the $102 billion horse industry and the millions of Americans who are part of it,” said Hickey. “The most effective way to affect Congress is through the voters, the horse people from back home who can tell Congress first hand about the horse industry in their respective states, and districts and the issues that impact them.” The AHC will conduct a free briefing for Ride-In participants. Anyone wishing to participate in the Ride-In should contact AHC Legislative Director Ben Pendergrass at : bpendergrass@horsecouncil.org More information on these Forums and the entire AHC annual meeting, including registration and hotel information can be found on the Events Page on the AHC’s website: http://horsecouncil.org/events.php PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This article has been republished with permission from www.Bloodhorse.com

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 quartermile 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 12 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED WEEKLY • March 30, 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.
