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 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.

Tony Diaz, an old-time jock, trained him and he called me on the phone and kind of gave me good (information) because we didn’t have him long before the first race for us. The purses are so good here to win a starter allowance, he paid for most of himself on the first race. We’re into gravy time.” The $2,500 purchase at the Northern California Yearling Sale has three wins in four starts, earnings of $136,828 and was coming off an August 15 starter optional claiming win.

Del Mar To Consider Adding Races To 2014 Summer Meeting Del Mar Thoroughbred Club officials will consider expanding the racing schedule for the track’s 2014 summer meeting after field sizes showed a notable increase at the current meeting, which ends on Wednesday, September 4. Track President Joe Harper said Sunday that adding races to the existing 37-day calendar would be a likely option instead of adding racing days. “It certainly is a thought, just seeing how strong the entries have been for most of the meet,” Harper said. “I think it’s something we need to talk about.” Through Saturday, Del Mar had averaged 8.75 runners per race through 34 days of racing. Last year, the entire meeting averaged 8.66 runners per race. The highest average field size at Del Mar in the last 20 years occurred in 1995, with 9.01 runners per race. At the current meeting, Del Mar typically has run eight races on weekdays, 10 on Saturdays, and nine on Sundays.—continued at www.BloodHorse.com Click here to read more PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This article has been republished from www.BloodHorse.com

Weekly Update Oak Tree Stays Involved With Southern California Racing The Oak Tree Racing Association, which for 42 years between 1969 and 2010 ran a fall race meeting that annually was one of the high points of Southern California racing, has not seen its flag fly for racing purposes for the I past two seasons. But the not-for-profit corporation that channeled its profits into research, development and breeding, as well as other worthy charitable causes keyed by the theme of “horsemen helping horsemen,” still has a presence in the industry. On the final two days of its race meeting, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club will run the second editions of races Oak Tree helped establish and fund—the Oak Tree Juvenile Fillies Turf on Monday and the Oak Tree Juvenile Turf on Wednesday, September 4. Both races are at a mile on grass with $100,000 purses and quickly have become key stepping stones to their race counterparts on the Breeders’ Cup programs, which this year will be run at Santa Anita Park on November 1 and 2. (The Oak Tree Racing Association previously had hosted the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita five times—1986, 1993, 2003, 2008 and 2009.) Last year the Oak Tree board also enabled the shift of one of its signature races—the Yellow Ribbon Handicap—to Del Mar. The mile and one-sixteenth turf race carries a $150,000 purse and again will be presented at the shore track this year, serving as the featured event on Monday’s triple-stakes card. The Oak Tree Racing Association continues to function as a positive force on the racing landscape in California through its president John Barr, its executive vice-president Sherwood Chillingworth, and its directors—Dr. Jack Robbins, Thomas Capehart, Dr. Rick Arthur, Richard Mandella, Warren Williamson and Robert Zamarripa, Sr.
West Nile Virus Found At Santa Anita West Nile virus activity is increasing in the San Gabriel Valley. Tests conducted by the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District confirmed West Nile virus (WNV) in a sample of mosquitoes collected from the city of Arcadia and three of the District's chicken flocks located in the cities of Arcadia, Irwindale, and Monterey Park. The District routinely tests mosquitoes and chickens from flocks it maintains throughout the San Gabriel Valley as part of its disease surveillance program. —continued at www.CTBA.com
Mark And Carla: Friends Till The Very End If you would permit me, I’d like to share a true story about friendship and compassion few know of, but upon which many have commented. Thirty years ago two people became friends—dear friends. It was a friendship that continued and strengthened over the many years, as they often shared personal hardships and moments of wonder and joy. For much of my life I’ve been told that we should consider ourselves quite fortunate if our journey rewards us with one or two such friends. I, like many others who knew them, saw theirs as one of those friendships that comes along only once or twice in a lifetime, and to which we all aspire. Over the past four years each battled a different form of cancer. With the love, help, and support of the other, the first of them survived the battle, while the second sadly did not. In the days leading up to that death, he asked several of us for help in going to the racetrack so that he could enjoy that experience one last time with those he loved and had become acquainted over a 42-year career in racing..—continued at www.paulickreport.com Click here to read more PUBLISHER’S NOTE: republished Permission from www.paulickreport.com
Northern California Equine Association Meeting On Genetics Guest Lecturer Dr. Steven Tammariello On Saturday, September 14th, At Golden Gate Fields Interested in learning about Genetic markers and profiling in Thoroughbred racing and breeding? This relatively new science shows there are well-documented genetic markers which the great race horses have in common. Genetic profiling can tell from a hair sample, collected from any Thoroughbred horse, how many of these markers (alleles) your racing prospect has in common with the ”Greats.” Historically this information has only been available to extremely wealthy and powerful players in our sport. The Northern California Equine Association (NCEA) wants to lift the veil of mystery off this subject. We are honored to have as our guest lecturer for September, Dr. Steven Tammariello. Dr. Tammariello is an Associate Professor of Molecular Genetics and the Director of the Institute for Equine Genomics at Binghamton University in NewM York, and the owner of Thorough Gen LLC, a New York-based equine genomics company. Dr. Tammariello has extensive research experience in molecular physiology, proteomics and genomics and has published papers in scientific journals including The Journal of

Neuroscience, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, and Cellular Immunology. He has been the recipient of multiple grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). His research lab is currently studying the genetics of athleticism in horses and humans, and the role of oxidative stress in human neurodegenerative disease. Please join us on Saturday, September 14, at Golden Gate Fields for an informative discussion where Dr. Tammariello will illuminate the possibilities this new science has to offer and also answer all your questions. The meeting will start at 9:30 am in the Bay View Lounge with a one hour presentation by Dr. Tammariello, followedby a Q&A forum Come early and bring an open mind. There will be a $10/head fee at the door to cover the cost ofrenting the room and flying Dr. Tammariello out to California.

Pleasant vs. Stern Human Voice’s Effect On Horses Admit it: You talk to your horse. We all do it. We know perfectly well they can’t understand the words we're saying, but shouldn't they be able to infer things from our tone of voice? For instance, your horse might appear to relax when you speak in a soothing tone. But is it just coincidence? Katrina Merkies, PhD, associate professor and equine program coordinator at the University of Guelph in Ontario, tested this theory and presented her study results at the 9th Annual International Society for Equitation Science, held July 18-20 at the University of Delaware, in Newark. “Anecdotally it is believed that speaking in a calm voice will inspire calm behavior in the horse,” she said. —continued at www.thehorse.com Click here to read more PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This article has been republished from www.BloodHorse.com
Researchers Study Horses' Startle Response To Novel Objects “He has a great temperament.” You might have heard an owner or trainer say these words when describing a horse, but how do we really define temperament? According to Jeannine Berger, DVM, Dipl. ACVB, of the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in California, one of the most useful and consistent indicators of equine temperament is a horse's novelty response, or how he handles or copes with new objects or situations. She presented the results of a recent novelty response study she and colleagues conducted on adult horses at the 9th Annual International Society for Equitation Science, held July 18-20 at the University of Delaware, in Newark. —continued at www.thehorse.com Click here to read more PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This article has been republished from www.BloodHorse.com

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.

California Weekly Hay Report From Friday, August 29, 2013 F or A n y Q u e s t i o n s O n T h i s L i s t P l e a s e C on t a ct : 97 0- 35 3- 97 50
Compared to last week: All classes of hay traded mostly steady. Many producers are beginning to store hay with hopes of the market becoming more favorable. Slightly above normal temperatures were seen across most of the state. Scattered storms in the Northern part of the state were seen while heaving rain due to an abnormal monsoonal flow, flooded region 5 and 6. Fire danger across the state still remains very high. According to the USDA National Forest Service there are 9 active fires burning nearly 290,000 acres state wide. The largest is the Rim Fire located in Tuolumne County at 199,227 acres. Range conditions continue to be fair to poor with little forage for livestock. Available water at lower elevations continues to decline. In Northern California dry land pastures and rangelands are done for the year forcing ranchers to look for alternative forage much earlier than normal. There was limited trade throughout the state with the sharpest decline in region 5 and 6. Due to heavy rain in the southern part of the state field work is at a standstill preventing shipment of current and new contracts. Trade was slow on moderate to light demand. All prices reported FOB at the stack or barn unless otherwise noted. Regions are defined at bottom of report.
