“He had a little bit of heat in his knee,” said bloodstock agent Mersad Metanovic, who will handle the stallion’s bookings. “There’s nothing there.

It came down to ‘What does he owe anybody?’ Absolutely nothing.”—continued at

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 CARMA 6th Annual Charity Poker Tournament “Poker In Paradise A Night Under the Stars”
Saturday, July 20
In support of providing funding for the rehabilitation, retraining and/or retirement of Thoroughbred horses that have raced in California, California Retirement Management Account (CARMA) will be hosting their 6th annual charity poker tournament, “Poker in Paradise—A Night Under the Stars”, on Saturday, July 20, at the Del Mar Hilton Hotel at 6:30 pm. CARMA is a charitable 501 (c)(3) organization formed to assist Thoroughbred rehabilitation and retirement organizations that facilitate the care and retraining of horses who raced in California and whose racing careers have ended. CARMA ensures the racehorses have retirement options by managing and disbursing funds to qualified retirement facilities caring for such horses. Attendees of the “Poker in Paradise—A Night Under the Stars” event will enjoy a laid back tropical paradise theme along with heavy appetizers. Guests will mix and mingle with industry elite, including racehorse owners, trainers and jockeys. “We are extremely proud of the work we’ve done over the last six years for the horses in our racing community, and are looking forward to the continued support of our friends and partners at this year’s “Poker in Paradise” event,” said CARMA Board Chair Madeline Auerbach. “The CARMA program has been a proven success in terms of dollars raised and most importantly in the tangible results seen at our benefiting farms and facilities where the horses live. CARMA has become a leader in the retirement/adoption community and events like this make our work possible.” Individual poker players enter into the Texas Hold ‘Em style tournament with a $200 donation. Poker players are encouraged to bring guests to attend and enjoy the event. Table packages for 8 players are available for a $3,000 donation. Guests who are not playing in the poker tournament can enjoy the festivities—including a live band, delicious appetizers, no-host cocktails, 50/50 Drawing, a silent auction and more—for just $40. Register for the event by Monday, July 1, and receive a complimentary Clubhouse Pass valid any single day of 2013 Del Mar meet. Tickets for the Poker in Paradise event are now available at www.carma4horses.org . For questions please call (626) 574-6622 or email info@CARMA4horses.org . The Del Mar Hilton hotel is located at 15575 Jimmy Durante Blvd, Del Mar, California 92014. Attendees must be at least 21 years of age.
CARMA Launches New Program To Assist Owners with Safely Retiring Thoroughbred Racehorses The California Retirement Management Account (CARMA) is pleased to announce the development of a new service for owners and trainers to assist in the placement of their Thoroughbreds in need of retirement. Through the generosity of the Santa Anita Park After-Care Program—an initiative to support racehorse retirement created by owner-breeder Frank Stronach—CARMA has created the CARMA Placement Program. This new program will facilitate the transition of horses from the racetrack to an approved CARMA Aftercare Partner (non-profit benefactors of CARMA grant funds) for placement in their forever home. The Placement Program will work directly with owners and trainers to transition horses admitted to the program to Winners’ Circle Ranch in Bradbury, California, to be assessed, treated if necessary, and then placed with the appropriate aftercare partner. The aftercare partner will provide rest, retraining and adoption, both, or permanent retirement, if necessary. There are several prerequisites to be fulfilled before the horse will be admitted into the program. Owners or trainers must provide some information about the horse’s physical condition; we understand injury is a common reason for retirement. We cannot accept colts into the program but newly gelded horses, geldings, and fillies/mares are welcome. The Placement Program is funded by the Santa Anita Park After-Care Program so we require that your horse has run at Santa Anita, Hollywood Park or the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club within the last six months or has been training with recorded works over that time span (showing the intent to run at one of those tracks). A donation of $500 is requested to help defray the transportation and administrative costs associated with each horse. While we know many owners have the necessary connections and contacts to retire their horses directly, the Placement Program offers a safe and simple option for racehorse retirement. We invite all owners and trainers to utilize the program for horses in need of retirement. For more information please refer to the CARMA website: www.carma4horses.org/resources/carma-placement-program. You can also contact the office at (626) 574-6654 or by email at PlacementProgram@carma4horses.org.

Compared to last week: All classes of hay traded mostly steady. According to USDA-NASS, California has experienced its seventh warmest spring on record. Range and non-irrigated pasture continue to deteriorate from fair to poor. The Northern two regions received scattered showers throughout the beginning of the week which slowed trading activity. Summer continues to set in throughout Regions 5 and 6 with temperatures predicted to reach 110 to 115 degrees by the weekend. As a result, fire danger continues to be a concern throughout the Southern portions of the state and on the East side of the Sierras. All prices reported FOB at the stack or barn unless otherwise noted.
