A colt by popular Kentucky stallion Sky Mesa was the $60,000 topper at Tuesday’s 2013 Northern California Sale. That $60,000 sale-topping price for a yearling was a nine percent increase from last year’s high sale and is the highest price at the sale since a $72,000 purchase in 2006. In Tuesday’s sale, the 10th presented in Northern California by the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association, 73 yearlings brought gross sales of $438,700, an average of $6,010 with a median of $4,000, up from last year’s median of $3,700. This year’s sale also had six horses of racing age not included in the yearling sale totals. This year’s yearling buyback rate of 18 percent was down significantly from the previous year’s 27 percent. H & E Ranch bred the sale topper. The colt, the first foal out of the stakes-placed Broken Vow mare Serious Vow, was purchased by Del Playa Bloodstock. The highest-priced filly was by Lucky J. H., out of the Emerald Jig mare No Peso No Dance, was bred by Sky Chase Farm, consigned by Harris Farms and was purchased by Chris Carpenter for $22,000.

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.

The co-high weight in the field of five at 121 pounds, Tiz Flirtatious has seven wins in 11 starts, earnings of $624,800 and was coming off a second in the May 27 Gamely. “Such acceleration; wonderful. She reminds me of two other horses I rode that could kick like that—(multiple stakes winners) Gorella (Fr) and Forever Together. She was so relaxed today; going so easy. I wasn’t concerned about the (slow) pace. We were in a 2 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED WeeKlY • August 14, 2013
good spot and I knew she had her kick. Certainly nice to ride one like her” rider Julien Leparoux. “I didn’t envision the race going that way but it couldn’t have worked out any better. When she relaxes she raises her game to another level and today she was really relaxed and happy. I think she’s getting better. It has taken some time, but now she relaxes and Julien (Leparoux) has done a great job and understands her and knows how she needs to be ridden. I think a mile and a quarter is our next spot. We’ll look at the Rodeo Drive (at Santa Anita Park) and then hopefully the Breeders’ Cup,” said trainer Marty Jones. She ran the 1 1/8 miles on turf in 1:51.71 and won by 2 1/4 lengths at odds of 3-5. www.ctba.com

2014 Foal Crop projected at 22,000 The Jockey Club is projecting a 2014 North American registered Thoroughbred foal crop of 22,000, it was announced today by Matt Iuliano, the organization’s Executive Vice President and Executive Director. The Jockey Club also announced downward revisions for the 2012 and 2013 foal crops to 23,500 and 23,000, respectively. The original projection for both the 2012 and 2013 foal crops was 24,700. Additional foal crop information is available in The Jockey Club’s Online Fact Book at jockeyclub.com/factbook.asp and in the state fact books at jockeyclub.com/statefactbook.asp. The foal crop projection, traditionally announced in mid-August, is computed by using Reports of Mares Bred (RMBs) received to date for the 2013 breeding season. RMBs are to be filed by August 1 of each breeding season. “The revisions to the 2012 and 2013 foal crops are the result of receiving fewer reports after the August 1 reporting deadline of mares being bred,” said Iuliano. The 22,000 foal crop projection for 2014 represents a decline of 4.3% from the revised projection of 23,000 foals for 2013. Stallion owners who have not returned their RMBs for the 2013 breeding season are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. Interactive RegistrationTM, which enables registered users to perform virtually all registration-related activities over the Internet, is the most efficient means of submitting RMBs and is available at registry.jockeyclub.com. 6 CALIFORNIA THOROUGHBRED WeeKlY • August 14, 2013
FoX Sports, The Jockey Club in Deal FOX Sports and The Jockey Club announced a multi-year agreement to air prominent graded stakes races starting in 2014 from many of horse racing’s best known tracks on FOX Sports 1, America’s new sports network launching Saturday, Aug. 17. The newly created package of nationally televised races consists of up to 10 telecasts per year. Each telecast includes two top stakes races featuring the leading horses in North America. The agreement also includes international and Spanish-language rights, including the ability to air races on FOX Deportes, the nation’s leading Spanish-language sports network. The announcement was made by FOX Sports Executive Vice President of Production and Executive Producer John Entz and The Jockey Club Chairman Ogden Mills Phipps. “We’re proud to partner with The Jockey Club and to place a bet on the future of Thoroughbred racing,” said Entz. “FOX Sports 1 is all about making sports more fun, and few events in sports are as much fun as a day at a great racetrack. Our partnership with The Jockey Club highlights the elements that make horse racing fun: the power and grace of the Thoroughbred, the challenging puzzle of handicapping, and the social aspect of a day at the races. We look forward to showcasing the highest level of competition in one of the most storied of all sports.” “The Jockey Club is thrilled to be joining forces with FOX Sports to showcase many of this country’s most prestigious races before a national television audience,” said Phipps. “Increasing the national television presence of Thoroughbred racing continues to be a key component of our fan retention and development efforts under the America’s Best Racing banner, and it will be gratifying to see Thoroughbred racing alongside Major League Baseball, college basketball, college football, NASCAR, and UFC events on the new FOX Sports 1.” The race series features graded stakes races from some of the most historic racetracks in North America, including Del Mar, Gulfstream Park, Keeneland, Santa Anita Park and Woodbine as well as the race tracks of the New York Racing Association. The new series premieres on FOX Sports 1 on Sunday, February 9, 2014, from Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, Florida and features the grade I Donn Handicap and the grade I Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap. The complete 2014 schedule of races will be released at a later date. The race series spotlights many horses that previously competed in Triple Crown races.—From The Jockey Club

Weekly Update New purse requirements For graded Stakes , The Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders have higher purses for our top tier races,” said , , Association’s American Graded Stakes Dr. J. David Richardson, the Chairman of the "
Committee (AGSC) announced today new " " "requirements " purse for U.S. grade I minimum " and grade II stakes races in 2014. " Minimum purse levels will be increased by $50,000 for both grade levels to $300,000 for grade I stakes races and $200,000 for grade II stakes races. Minimum purses for grade III, listed and grade-eligible stakes races will remain at $100,000, $75,000 and $75,000, respectively, for 2014. “There had been no raise in the purse minimum for graded stakes for several years and the committee felt it was important to
AGSC. “Many non-stakes races now have purses comparable to graded races and we believe our best races should be set apart from the rest. With the declining foal crops we may see a movement toward somewhat fewer but more valuable graded races.” The AGSC intends on increasing the minimum purse level on U.S. grade III races to $150,000 in 2015. Listed and grade eligible races will undergo an analysis to determine if any change should be made for 2015.—From the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association

Jockey Club To push For Federal regulation of racing if Uniform Drug rules aren’t adopted The Jockey Club will push for federal regulation of horse racing if the vast majority of racing states do not adopt a set of uniform medication rules that has already been endorsed by a handful of major racing organizations, the chairman of The Jockey Club said Sunday at the close of the Round Table Conference on Matters Pertaining to Racing. Ogden Mills “Dinny” Phipps, the owner of the racing and breeding operation Phipps Stable, made the remark after a separate speaker at the Round Table had presented the results of a recent poll of horseplayers and casual fans suggesting widespread support for uniform rules. Phipps displayed a chart showing that eight racing states, mostly on the Eastern seaboard, already have vowed to adopt the rules by January 1. Another four states, including Kentucky and Illinois, are in the process of securing an endorsement, Phipps said, leaving 17 states, including Florida and Texas, without a position on the uniform rules.—continued at www.DRF.com, By Matt Hegarty Click here to read more pUBliSHer’S NoTe: This article has been republished with permission from www.drf.com

Weekly Update USDa announces ongoing efforts To assist ranchers impacted By Drought As severe drought conditions persist in certain regions throughout the country, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan M. Garcia today announced temporary assistance to livestock producers through FSA’s Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Under limited conditions, farmers and ranchers affected by drought will be allowed to use certain additional CRP acres for haying or grazing under emergency conditions while maintaining safeguards to the conservation and wildlife benefits provided by CRP. In addition, USDA announced that the reduction to CRP annual rental payments related to emergency haying or grazing will be reduced from 25 percent to 10 percent. Further, the sale of hay will be allowed under certain conditions. These measures take into consideration the quality losses of the hay and will provide needed assistance to livestock producers. “Beginning today, state FSA offices are authorized, under limited conditions, to expand opportunities for haying and grazing on certain additional lands enrolled in CRP,” said Garcia. “This local approach provides both the appropriate flexibility and ability to tailor safeguards specific to regional conditions. States must adhere to specific guidelines to ensure that additional haying and grazing still maintains the important environmental and wildlife benefits of CRP. These safeguards will be determined through consultation with the state conservationist, state fish and wildlife agency and stakeholders that comprise the state technical committee.” CRP is a voluntary program that provides producers annual rental payments on their land in exchange for planting resourceconserving vegetation on cropland to help prevent erosion, provide wildlife habitat and improve the environment. CRP acres enrolled under certain practices can already be used for emergency
haying and grazing during natural disasters to provide much-needed feed to livestock. FSA state offices have already opened haying, grazing or both in 432 counties in response to natural disaster this year. Given the continued multi-year drought in some regions, forage for livestock is already substantially reduced. The action today will allow lands that are not typically eligible for emergency haying and grazing to be used with appropriate protections to maintain the CRP environmental and wildlife benefits. The expanded haying and grazing will only be allowed following the local primary nesting season, which already has passed in many areas. Especially sensitive lands such as stream buffers are generally not eligible. FSA also has taken action under the Emergency Conservation Program to authorize additional expenditures related to drought response to be eligible for cost share, including connection to rural water systems and installation of permanent pipelines. In addition, given the limited budgetary resources and better long term benefits, FSA has increased the maximum cost share rates for permanent practices relative to temporary measures. FSA encourages all farmers and ranchers to contact their local USDA Farm Service Agency Service Center to report damage to crops or livestock loss. In addition, USDA reminds livestock producers to keep thorough records of losses, including additional expenses for such things as feed purchased due to lost supplies. —Release No. 0139.13, From the United States Department Of Agriculture— Farm Service Agency

How to recognize and Help an overheated Horse
Botulism in Horses: an Update
QUESTION: What are some of the signs that a horse has overheated? ANSWER: The outward signs are those you’d see any time a horse is stress, so first you want to consider how hot it is and the current humidity. Those will both give you clues as to whether or not the signs are related to heat. Number one, the horse will be breathing rapidly. They are trying to blow out air and let off heat through the respiratory tract. Some might be sweating (though horses with anhidrosis will not sweat). You’ll also see a capillary break at the skin—you’ll see the capillaries coming up to the skin surface. Everyone should have a rectal thermometer in their first-aid kit. That’s the tool you need to tell where your horse is and if he’s overheating.—continued at
Rising hay prices and the financial crunch caused by 2009’s Great Recession drove many horse owners to seek less expensive forage sources, including large round bales, haylage, and silage. But according to Amy Johnson, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM, compromising on hay quality and feeding from half-ton bales led to a larger problem: an uptick in reported cases of equine botulism. Johnson, who studies the disease at the University of Pennsylvania’s National Botulism Reference Laboratory and treats horses at the university’s New Bolton Center, presented a lecture on “Advances in Diagnosis and Treatment of Botulism” at the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Forum, held June 12-16, 2013, in Seattle, Washington. So, what advances have taken place in the diagnosis of botulism in horses?.—continued at www.BloodHorse.com, By Michelle N.

Weekly Update positive, Negative reinforcement in Horse Training Compared As the concept of positive reinforcement gains popularity, researchers are trying to confirm its effectiveness at a more baseline level. According to a group of Midwestern equitation scientists, training young horses to load into a trailer is equally effective and stressful whether they’re trained using positive or negative reinforcement. “Both methods (positive and negative reinforcement) proved equally effective in young, inexperienced horses with limited prior experience to handling,” said Kristina Hiney, PhD, associate professor at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, who described her study on the topic at the 9th Annual International Society for Equitation Science, held July 18-20 at the University of Delaware, in Newark.
In their experiment, Hiney and her fellow researchers taught eight yearlings and seven weanlings that had never been exposed to a trailer how to load into a stock trailer. To keep the stress level as low as possible and to avoid influence from environmental factors such as separation anxiety, the researchers used a trailer next to the horses’ pasture where they could stay close to their herdmates, Hiney said.—continued at www.theHorse.com, By Christa Lesté-Lasserre Click here to read more pUBliSHer’S NoTe: Republished with permission from www.Bloodhorse.com

California-Bred Flashback: Cherry river On August 14, 1976, Cherry River, a son of Bounding Main, won the $25,000 Bing Crosby Handicap at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, with Sawtooth second and Fast Spot third in a field of seven. Cherry River was trained by Doug Oliver and ridden by Laffit Pincay, Jr. He ran the six furlongs in 1:09 2/5 and won by a nose at odds of 8-5. Cherry River was the second of 11 foals out of the Comic mare Cherry Festival, who also produced the stakes-placed Ripple River and River Festival. The Bing Crosby was Cherry River’s 23rd win in 54 starts. He won a total of 12 stakes, including the Bing Crosby twice and the Governor’s Cup at Pomona three times, and finished his career with 33 wins in 95 starts and earnings of $311,289. Cherry River was bred by L.C. Howard, was foaled at Howard Stock Farm in Moorpark and was owned by Stan or Doug Oliver.
Nestled in rolling hills adjacent to the horse-related community of Santa Theresita, you will find one of the oldest and most beautiful homages to the Thoroughbred in this state, California Thoroughbred Ranch. Now in its fourth decade of operation, the ranch was built from the ground up by Jack and Susie Farmer who still own the beautiful facility and live right on the premises. Once an abandoned alfalfa field, the ranch is a striking portrayal of early California architecture, right down to the adobe and mission-style construction of the barns and office complex. The main barn contains stalls for 40 horses in training and the foaling barn comes equipped with closed circuit television monitors that are linked up to the farm manager’s office and residence 24 hours a day. Newborns are kept in stalls with their dams for the first 36 hours of life and monitored closely. After that, they are moved outdoors to grassy paddocks and pastures. The region’s temperate climate allows for horses to live outdoors year-round, and the ranch’s pastures range from two acres to almost 50 and follow the contours of the foothills. To date, more than 200 stakes winners have been foaled and raised on the ranch’s green fields. Others, like last year’s Eclipse champion juvenile colt Valid Point, were brought to the ranch as yearlings for breaking and schooling. California Thoroughbred Ranch also has an excellent reputation as a training center. It
offers five round pens, an indoor riding arena and a scenic uphill gallop that winds its way through the facility. There are also two treadmills and a swimming pool, where lay-ups can regain their conditioning without risk of further injury. The ranch is home to two of California’s finest stallions. Super Dad is the sire of 22 graded stakes winners and countless other stakes performers. His champion daughter Daddy’s Little Gal captured last year’s Cal Cup Juvenile Fillies and this year’s grade I Santa Anita Oaks. Moneymaker was foaled at the ranch and now stands at stud here. This graded stakes winner of nearly $400,000 has thrust himself into the national spotlight when his son Hayburner captured this year’s Travers Stakes at Saratoga. Winner of the Wood Memorial and second in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, Hayburner now has earnings over $1 million. The Cal-bred is now pointing for the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Farm manager Bob Trainer has more than 30 years of experience in this business and gives your horses the personal care and attention they deserve. Assistant manager and yearling trainer Steve Winner also has many years of veterinary experience, although the farm’s main vet lives just down the road and is on call 24 hours a day, especially during the busy foaling season. Visitors are welcome and encouraged to come and tour the facilities. Also visit their impressive website at www.Califthoroughbredranch.com.
