Betfair Hollywood Park Begins What Could Be Final Spring Meet The 2013 spring meet begins Thursday at Betfair Hollywood Park, where picking winners is easier than predicting the future of the racetrack. Despite increasing likelihood the 75th anniversary season will be the final spring at Hollywood, racing secretary Martin Panza does not look beyond the current calendar. Is this the last hurrah for Hollywood? “It is not for me to say,” Panza said. “Until they tell me we’re closing, we keep going along. Certainly, there is a lot of chatter that way.” The Hollywood property is slated for future development, and track officials have not stated their intention to conduct racing, or training, past the 2013 fall meet that begins in November. As for 2014, who knows? Continued on page 14

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 2012 but is standing in the state in 2013, a double dagger (‡) that he is not standing in California in 2013 but will stand in the state in 2014 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.

Weekly update NORCAL SALE Continued from page 1

The 69 hips that sold in 2012 brought gross sales of $528,200, an average of $7,655 and a median price of $4,000.

For more information, please contact Cookie Hackworth, Calif-ornia Thoroughbred Breeders Association Sales Coordinator, at (800) 573-2822 ext. 243 or cookie@ctba.com Since the sale returned under the direction of the CTBA 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.

SENATE IMAGRATION BILL Continued from page 1

The bill would increase border security, provide a path for unauthorized immigrants to remain in the country and eventually apply for citizenship, implement an employment verification system, and improve current and create new temporary guest worker programs. If comprehensive immigration is debated by Congress in the coming months this bill will likely be the basis for reform. Comprehensive immigration reform has been a priority of the horse industry for many years. The difficulty horse farms, horse shows, trainers and others have had recruiting American workers has forced many to rely on foreign workers and utilize both the H-2B and H-2A temporary foreign worker programs to meet their labor needs. However, the current system is not reliable and is extremely burdensome to use. This bill would overhaul the U.S. immigration system and has the potential to finally fix some of the immigration issues facing the horse industry and all of American agricultural. This bill is very long and complex and would make many changes concerning border security and all aspects of our current immigration system. The horse industry is primarily concerned with changes to guest worker programs and a path to legal status for undocumented workers. Legal Status—The bill would allow undocumented aliens to apply for registered provisional immigrant (RPI) status if they were here by December 31, 2011, have not been convicted of any serious crime, pay back taxes, and pay a fine. They can then stay and work in the country. After ten years they could apply for permanent residence (Green Card), and eventually citizenship, if they pay additional fines and fulfill additional requirements. Undocumented farm workers including those on horse farms would be eligible for a separate agricultural legalization program, referred to as a “blue card,” that includes an accelerated five year path to legal permanent resident status if they continue to work in the agricultural sector. These changes would allow any undocumented individuals working in any capacity or segment of the horse industry to stay and continue working if they can meet the requirements in the bill. Temporary Worker Programs—The bill would replace the current H-2A program with a new, temporary agricultural foreign worker program that should be easier to use than the current H-2A program. The new program would be administered by the Department of Agriculture (USDA) as opposed to the Department of Labor (DOL), and provide two work visa options :1) a portable, at will employment based visa; and 2) a 12 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED WEEKlY • April 24, 2013

contract based visa program. Visas will be good for up to three years and could be renewed one time. Currently, H-2A visas are only good for 10 months. To participate in the program employers must register with USDA and will have to provide housing or housing stipend, pay transportation cost, pay a predetermined wage and take actions to recruit and ensure U.S. workers are not adversely affected, similar to the current H-2A program. However, the proposed program should be much less burdensome for employers to use than the current H-2A program. The bill also includes some reforms to the H-2B temporary, non-agricultural worker program such as an improved wage methodology. It also would exempt returning workers from counting against the 66,000 annual visa cap through 2018. Additionally, the bill would create a completely new low-skill guest worker program (W- Visa). This program would grant low skill foreign workers a three-year W-visa to work for American employers in industries that have difficulty finding American workers. The program would have an annual cap of 20,000 visas for the first year; 35,000 the second year; 55,000 the third year and 75,000 the fourth year after which the cap will be calculated according to a formula that takes into account several factors, like new job openings in the economy and the number of unemployed US workers. Employers would have to register for this program, demonstrate a need and take actions to recruit and ensure U.S. workers are not adversely affected similar to other guest worker programs. Non-agricultural horse industry employers like trainers, race tracks, and horse shows should be eligible for this program. Employment Verification—The bill would also require all employers to use the E-Verify system over a five-year phase-in period to make sure all their workers are authorized to work in the U.S. Employers with more than 5,000 employees will be phased in within two years; those with more than 500 employees three years; all others, including agricultural employers, will be phased in within four years. This bill is very complex and is over 800 pages long. The AHC is in the beginning stages of analyzing the bill and its possible impact on the industry. However, the bill has the potential to make the guest worker programs the horse industry relies on more reliable, less burdensome and less costly. Some of the reforms included in this bill could fix many of the labor issue the industry has been dealing with for many years. The AHC will be watching this process closely and working to make sure any final bill deals with the needs of horse farms, horse shows, trainers and the entire horse industry. www.ctba.com

Weekly update Storm Cat Euthanized At 30

BETFAIR HOLLYWOOD PARK Continued from page 1

“It would be sad if this place goes away,” trainer Doug O’Neill said. “It’s such a beautiful facility with so much history. I hope and pray we somehow figure out a way to save it. I keep staying optimistic that some Lee Iacocca will come knocking on the door and save the day.” Until then, the only certainty is a four-day-a-week spring meet that runs through July 14. After a long winter at speed-friendly Santa Anita Park, Hollywood offers a refreshing change for handicappers and horsemen. As racing secretary, Panza hears it first-hand.—continued at www.DRF.com, By Brad Free

California-Bred Champion unzip Me in Foal to Kitten’s Joy Unzip Me, the California Champion Older Female of 2011, has been successfully bred to Kitten’s Joy on a February cover for a 2014 foal. The flashy chestnut daughter of City Zip and Escape With Me, by Arazi earned $959,228 racing for the partnership of John Harris, Don Valpredo, Marty Jones and Per Antonsen. A multiple grade III winner, Unzip Me also placed third in the 2010 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (grade II). Kitten’s Joy is the sire of 14 stakes winners and 30 stakes performers in 2012 with earnings of $6,533,591 and stands at Ramsey Farm in Nicholasville, Kentucky. Unzip Me is now at Highcroft Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. “We are very excited to breed Unzip Me to a world class sire,” Harris Farms resident trainer Per Antonsen said. “I think they chose the right stallion they are both turf horses, and Unzip Me sure liked the Turf.”—continued at www.harrisfarms.com,

Joy Scott Moved to rehab Trainer Howard Zucker reports that jockey Joy Scott has been moved to Casa Colina in Pomona to continue her therapy. “She says the therapists are really good there,” said Zucker. Scott, 54, suffered a compound fracture of her right femur in a training accident at Santa Anita Park on March 12.

Bob Hubbard Passes At 87 Bob Hubbard passed away at the age of 87 on April 11 at his home in La Cresta. Bob Hubbard Horse Transportation was the official transporter for the 1984 Olympics, as well as ground transport for the 2010 World Equestrian Games. Established more than 40 years ago, Bob Hubbard Horse Transportation has a national scope, with bases in Southern California, Florida, Kentucky and in Washington State. Its customers have included the legendary Black Stallion, the Budweiser Clydesdales and Horse of the Year champions Cigar and Point Given. Mr. Hubbard is survived by his wife, Pat, sons Tom and Jim, daughter Kim, and granddaughters Ashley, Samantha and Payton. —From Santa Anita Publicity

trainer Bobby Wingfield Passes At 84 Longtime trainer Robert “Bobby” Wingfield passed away this past Saturday, according to his son-in-law, Darrel McHargue, who is currently a racing steward at Golden Gate Fields. “He died of natural causes,” said McHargue, who is married to the former Robin Wingfield and was America’s Eclipse Award winning jockey in 1978. “He passed away at his daughter’s house in Livermore with his family and friends at his side.” Mr. Wingfield was a fixture at Santa Anita Park’s Clockers’ Corner for many years and was a highly respected horseman. According to a post on twitter by Ray Paulick of the Paulick Report, “Among others, trainer Robert Wingfield trained stakes winners No No for Burt Bacharach and Bicker for Earl Scheib . . . “ Quick with a smile and an encouraging word, Wingfield was in close contact with the racing scene in Southern California, despite having been retired for several years. Robin Wingfield is currently Director of Group Sales at Golden Gate. Funeral services for Bobby Wingfield will be private..—From Santa Anita Publicity

Weekly update New Website For regulatory reform The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (TOBA) today announced the launch of horseracingreform.org, an advocacy and information website designed to promote improved regulatory standards for horse racing. The site replaces cleanhorseracing.org. “Over the course of the last year we have seen tangible progress in the area of medication reform — as evidenced by the Mid-Atlantic states’     of a uniform medication policy, the Association of Racing Commissioners International’s approval of a controlled therapeutic medication schedule, adoption and increased movement toward RMTC accreditation of drug-testing labs,” said James L. Gagliano, president and chief operating officer of The Jockey Club. “As the horse racing industry moves toward improved and uniform regulations, horseracingreform.org will provide important benchmark information, such as state-by-state summaries of medication rules and safety requirements.” Cleanhorseracing.org, launched in May 2012, featured news, videos, scientific studies and commentary in support of medication-free racing. Horseracingreform.org expands on those features and includes additional information pertaining to: The Jockey Club’s Thoroughbred Safety Committee · The regulatory rulings database (thoroughbredrulings.com) · State-by-state summaries of medication rules and safety requirements · Details on TOBA’s medication- and safety-related programs · Ongoing work of the Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit committees · The state-by-state graphic summary of medication rules and penalties in all racing states provides users with an efficient means to review regulations. Also included is a timeline charting industrywide medication- and safety-reform initiatives that have been launched since 2006. “The industry has made great strides in reform over the past several years,” said Dan Metzger, president of TOBA. “TOBA is proud to continue its collaboration with The Jockey Club, and we are continuously striving to improve the economics, integrity and pleasure of the sport on behalf of owners and breeders with initiatives like the Horse Racing Reform website.” “We have added a great deal of new content and the new name covers a broader scope of activities and more accurately conveys what we are trying to accomplish,” said Gagliano. “We believe that the objective, factual information on this website will enable visitors to learn more about reform issues and take action to encourage change.”——From The Jockey Club

Compared to last week: All classes of hay traded mostly steady to firm in all regions. According the US Drought monitor regions 1-3 continue to be abnormally dry, while regions 4-6 are in a moderate to severe drought. Additionally region 5-6 crop moisture index shows excessively dry in shallow soil profile. Despite some recent rain, snow pack and precipitation are well below seasonal norms. Above average temperatures coupled with strong dry northerly winds contributed to growing concerns about forage development. Kern and Imperial counties are beginning to realize losses of alfalfa due to aphid infestation. Demand good for all classes of hay on moderate to light trade activity. All prices reported FOB at the stack or barn unless otherwise noted. Regions are defined at bottom of report.
