By Robert Geller ich Perloff grew up by Hollywood Park in LA, going to the track with his father, taking to the southern Californian tracks like a fish to water. No surprise that today he is one of the more established on-air presenters and racing analysts on the Television Games Network (TVG). This multi-talented individual began with the network just more than a decade ago in late 2001 after having worn a variety of professional caps. His lawyer days may be behind him, but this University of Michigan graduate who had a practice in San Diego presides today over Del Mar form instead. Rich embraces the national scene in a fair-handed way and has become a ag-bearer for a number of racing circuits that might otherwise have been dismissed by non-regional viewers. His open nature and intelligent approach means that Rich values his audience, welcomes fan input and is not afraid to smarten them up. A well-rounded man whose creative life outside of racing embraces his thespian talents, Rich was more than happy to share some of his insights and personal reections.

COVER STORY Continued from pg. 1

You say TVG is the one job you didn’t specificly train for, a job you have now been in just over a decade. It is also true that prior to joining the network in 2001, you had been a racing enthusiast for 30 years. How easy was it to turn a passion into a career? It was pretty easy, really. My extensive background as a racegoer, handicapper and horseplayer stood me in good stead. And, because I had a long background as a performing artist, the idea of being on a set and in front of a camera wasn’t foreign to me. Really, the only thing that concerned me going in was whether the idea of working in the horseracing industry would make it feel more like ... well, like work. Racing had always been a source of great pleasure and enjoyment for me, and I didn’t want to lose that. Fortunately, it was never an issue, and I’m happy to report that I love it as much as I ever did. More even.

and always come across as diplomatic. How personally challenging are these interactive segments? The Monday and Tuesday shows are, The roles of on-air presenter and racing without a doubt, the highlight of my work analyst seem to co-exist effortlessly for week. I feel very strongly connected to you, skills that not every talent can sucthose racetracks, and to those viewers, cessfully balance. What are the secrets to many of whom have been e-mailing so developing such a comfortable mix? regularly and for so long that I’ve come I’ve always been pretty clear on to feel as though I really do know them a the “division of labor” as between host little bit. The show used to have a slightly (presenter) and analyst. When I’m in rougher edge; I mean, we actually used the host’s chair, I know that my primary to call it “Zero Tolerance Tuesday.” I don’t obligation is to keep the show moving think I go looking for a fight these days, forward according to the producer’s “runbut, by the same token, I absolutely refuse down,” or itinerary. As a host, I also have to scrub and sanitize the e-mails that a responsibility to represent -- and speak express criticisms, or opinions that differ for -- the less experienced handicappers from my own. I don’t have a “screener,” and in the audience, which is why I tend to I’m the only one who sees what comes ask so many handicapping questions in. Some of the stuff I get is pretty nasty, when I’m hosting. When I’m sitting next to someone like Matt Carothers or Simon and that goes straight to the trash. I’m not about to provide a public forum for meanBray or Tom Cassidy, I know that there’s spirited name-calling. But I see nothing a great opportunity to get some of their the matter with a little lively debate, and tremendous store of knowledge into the people who watch the show on a regular conversation. As I learn, I believe that the basis know that I have no qualms whataudience learns, too. As a race analyst, my task is simpler: I’m there to explain, as soever about admitting when I’m wrong. Even at my advanced age, I’m trainable. clearly as possible, why I like who I like in The theory that underlies the Mona given race. And hopefully along the way, day/Tuesday shows is pretty simple. We’re I’m helping handicappers to expand their all at the racetrack together, enjoying a own repertoire of skills. day’s action. And, as happens at the track, When you answer viewers’ e-mails on you don’t talk about horses and races nonair as they come in, you are not afraid to stop ... which is why I’m likely, at a moagree or disagree with opinions expressed ment’s notice, to digress into a discussion

about movies, or music, or ... whatever. It’s pretty free-wheeling, but ... I absolutely insist on civil discourse. Debate is fine; at the end of the day, we’ll shake hands, and agree to meet tomorrow and do it all over again. But, if someone comes at me with something I find offensive, the chances are that they’re going to hear about it. You grew up with southern Californian racing and have had the chance to travel to different tracks across the country. The level of commitment you display toward the so-called smaller tracks appears equal to the bigger ones. How do you manage to stay so connected to such a broad spectrum of racing product from the comfort of a TV studio? Again, I’d say this is pretty much an outgrowth of the Monday/Tuesday experience. Those are my tracks, and I’m very protective of them. Nobody else at TVG watches as much Parx, Suffolk, Will Rogers, Fairmount, Turf Paradise and Sunland as I do. Over the years, I’ve become very familiar with the nature of racing at those venues. I know the race conditions, I recognize the top human players, and I’ve gotten comfortable with the look and feel of the product. Given your even-keeled personality it is hard to imagine anything fazing you. What would you describe as your most SureBet RacingNews.com, Inc. • May 1, 2012 • Vol. 6 No. 21 5


panicked on-air moment and what would be your proudest? Panic, huh? Well, here’s one. Every now and again, I’m dispatched to the racetrack to conduct pre- and post-race interviews. On one of my first such “reporter” assignments, I launched into an interview, only to become totally flustered because there was a flurry of noisy activity around me in the paddock. I immediately started saying, “Cut! Cut! Let’s start again!” And then hearing the producer in my earpiece saying: “Uh...Rich? This is live.” Oops. Proudest moment? I think that would probably have to be the fall of 2008, when the Breeders’ Cup returned to Santa Anita for the first of two consecutive years. TVG sent me to the track to be part of the Friday morning show, and I’ll never forget the scene. It was

a typically gorgeous fall day in Southern California. The track was all decked out in Breeders’ Cup purple bunting, the mountains were looming in the background, we were on the verge of Racing’s Greatest Day (two days, really) ... and I was a part of it. I was in front of a camera, offering up my thoughts and analysis on Breeders’ Cup races. Beyond my wildest dreams, truly. You appear to relish the intellectual challenge of handicapping. I notice for example, that you pay considerable attention to the condition of a race. How would you describe your approach to handicapping? It’s the greatest puzzle ever invented ... and, as all horseplayers know, there is absolutely nothing that compares with the feeling you get when the race you see unfolding on the track is the same as the

one you saw in your mind’s eye while you were handicapping. Handicappers are in the business of predicting the future ... which ain’t easy. When you get it right, it’s a pretty powerful buzz. There are as many approaches to handicapping as there are handicappers, and they all have a certain degree of validity, which is to say that they’ll all work sometimes. Even though I dabble in numbers and statistics to a certain degree -- it’s unavoidable in this game -- I believe, as I have always believed, that handicapping is essentially a right-brain enterprise. I use facts and figures to get me to the place where my intuition can take over. Bottom line: racing is a flesh-and-blood game, and it can’t be solved solely through the application of mathematical formulas. I talk a great deal about race conditions for a couple of reasons. One, I think that a lot of handicappers gloss over them; and, two, I’m convinced that this is where the handicapping process has to begin. If you fully understand the type of race you’re dealing with, then you wade into the past performances with a solid understanding of what would constitute a perfect “fit” under those conditions. You’re actively looking for that horse. As with all quests for perfection, you don’t often find exactly what you’re looking for, but keeping that ideal in mind gives you a clearer prism for assessing the horses you find in any given field. What are two of your favorite handicapping angles? Whichever one was successful for me most recently. It’s a tough question for me, because I’ve got so many of them. The main thing to

note about “angles” is that all handicappers have them ... even the ones who maintain that they don’t. An angle is really nothing more than a collection of circumstances that we’ve noticed -- and capitalized on -- in the past. When we see the pattern repeating, we know there’s utility in it. It’s just a shorthand way of describing something that has occurred to us over time and (often costly) experience. I’ll describe a couple that I’m especially fond of. They’re relatively new weapons in my arsenal, as they were devised to deal with the sorts of races I watch on a daily basis at TVG. 1) The “Calendar” angle. I had never seen a “time-restricted” claiming race until I started watching some of the smaller tracks on TVG. That’s when I realized how many racing secretaries were writing races of this nature, races for horses that are non-winners during a specified period of time (six months, nine months, one year, etc.) The Calendar angle goes looking for a horse that won its most recent start prior to the cut-off date described in the condition. It’s a built-in class-drop angle, really; by definition, in such a race, that horse has been facing stiffer competition until the passage of time makes it eligible for the softer spot. 2) The “What’s Under the Hood?” angle (and I have to give credit to my old “Zero Tolerance Tuesday” partner, Randy Doerges, for coming up with the catchy name). This one can be especially valuable to players who feel up against it when confronting fields full of first-time starters (FTS) in maiden races. We’re looking for a FTS with particularly fast works early in the work-tab, which then give way to longer,


COVER STORY slower drills. Once the trainer knows the horse possesses speed -- and has shown it in early workouts where, presumably, the horse wasn’t being “asked” for much -- he or she can set about the business of building in stamina. It’s a little counter-intuitive -- players love to see those bullet drills just before a horse’s debut -- but, in the pari-mutuel universe, if you can zig when others are zagging, you’re going to be well compensated for your successes.

or con -- by looking at a horse’s appearance/demeanor on the racetrack. I do like to point out lead changes when I see them ... but, that’s probably just me congratulating myself for actually being able to spot lead changes. For about the first 25 years of my race-watching career, I had no idea what a “lead change” was, or what it looked like.

Even though your schedule does vary, is it possible to estimate, on average, how What do you believe are angles that fans much time you must devote to handicaptend to over-do that you prefer to shy ping each week? away from? I’d estimate that, for every hour I I call them the dreaded “B-words,” spend on-air, I probably need to do two Bounce and Bias. Let me be clear: I believe hours’ worth of handicapping.

my style, and it never will be. Call me Pollyanna, but I think racing is fine. It was around long before I was a gleam in my father’s eye, and it’ll be around long after I’m gone. Is it changing? Yes. Is it dying? No. Does that mean that the status quo is absolutely peachy, and nothing needs to be amended? Absolutely not. Racing is the greatest game of all ... but it can always be improved. And it should be improved. But, I refuse to partner with the “glass half-empty” crowd that always seems to be lurking on the periphery of the sport. I think most of those folks are just cynics, and cynics give me a gigantic pain in the hindquarters. If you see a problem, then roll up your sleeves and become part of the solution. But, if all you’re doing is standing on the sidelines and throwing darts, so that maybe one day you can say “I told you so” ... to me, that’s not admirable. What things do you consider key to attracting new fans? Oh, there are so many things, and I believe that a lot of racetracks are already embracing them. Night and/or afternoon racing on weekdays has certainly made a difference on several circuits. Promotions are great, too -- giveaways, contests, and the like. Racing needs to puff out its chest a little bit, and let people know that a day at the races is an event. It’s a party, and there’s nothing else quite like it. And, it’s not just for the “newbies.” Long-time racetrackers need to be reminded of that from time to time as well. You work at Emerald Downs, Robert, so you’ve seen some of this in action. Every time I visit that track, I’m struck by the number of young people in attendance, and, on the weekends, by the family atmosphere. Mom? Dad? Stuck for something fun to do on a warm Saturday afternoon? Pack up the kids and take ‘em racing. Reducing track takeout is another important concept, and I see more and more tracks testing these waters, what with the 50-cent Pick-5 in place at a number of venues. If you had the power to change one aspect of our sport tomorrow, what would that be? I think the single best adjustment the sport could make would be to organize a single, nationwide, strictly enforced policy with regard to the medications that raceSureBet RacingNews.com, Inc. • May 1, 2012 • Vol. 6 No. 21 7


COVER STORY horses can receive. The lack of uniformity from one racing jurisdiction to another makes any number of things in the game problematic, but this one reaches to every corner of the sport. It leads to reduced confidence among bettors, it taints the perception of the sport in the general public, and it impacts on the stoutness and soundness of the horses we’re breeding. Have you ever owned or part-owned a racehorse and if so, how was the experience? About 15 years ago, I bought a tiny interest in a low-level claiming horse through one of the first Internet ownership groups. “We” claimed him for $5,000 out of a race at Turf Paradise in March of 1996. His name was Mr. Baldini. I never saw him run in person, as he never came down to Southern California. But, on June 23, 1996, I stood in front of a television monitor in the clubhouse area of the simulcast facility at Los Alamitos, and I watched ‘Baldini’ romp home in a race at Stockton at 8-1. I was screaming like a fiend at the TV. My enthusiasm must have been contagious, because I soon had a few other folks yelling for him as well. And that was that. I cashed a bet, someone sent me a copy of the winners’ circle photo ... and, before too much longer, I sold my interest. It just wasn’t the sort of charge I go looking for at the track. Someday, I might try it again, but, to tell you the truth, it isn’t high on the “bucket list.”

Saturday and Sunday. I’m usually at the gym early, then running errands in the late morning. If I’ve got a few hours free in the afternoon, you can generally find me in a movie theater somewhere -- I’m an unapologetic movieholic -- and, in the afternoon-evening, I’m probably spending quality time with my son. What other sports interest you? I like most of the “major” sports here in America. I follow both basketball and football, but I much prefer the college game to the pro game in both instances. I used to be a very, very serious baseball fan, but ... not so much anymore. I still pay some attention, but generally don’t really get plugged into the season until around mid-summer. I guess the bottom line is that my favorite sports to watch anymore are whatever my son is playing at any given time.

Fans would love to hear about some of your experiences as an actor. What are some of your more memorable roles and are you active in film or theater today? I spent a lot of years gallivanting around the U.S. playing Shakespeare; those were amazing times, and, to this day, my favorite roles have mostly come from the Classics. I had the opportunity to play both Iago (“Othello”) and the title role in “Richard II,” which are among the greatest roles ever written in the English language. I played Iago on a 10-month national tour back in the early ‘80s. we performed the Do you enjoy wagering yourself and if so, show about 125 what is your favorite bet type? times, and, on closYes, I’m a player.

or two theatrical projects every year, whether as actor or director. Last fall, I appeared as Inspector Truscott in an area production of Joe Orton’s play “Loot,” which has always been a favorite of mine. I’m not sure what’s on the menu for 2012, but never fear; if and when I line up a project, I’m not shy about promoting it on the air. Who else in your family is into horseracing? Nobody who’s still with us, alas. My father took me to the track for the first time when I was 12 or 13, and for 30 years, until he passed away in 2002, it remained our most valued father-and-son activity. Whatever else was going on in our lives, we always had a great time at the races.

Martinez has a swimming facility on his farm in McDade, just minutes away from the Elgin clinic. Hays is a proponent of swimming horses to maintain fitness. He points to research that confirms that hydrotherapy can assist healing and building strength without stress or trauma to joints and knees. “We work together real well,” said Martinez. “He wants his horses to last, and if it means laying them up after a tough race, he’s good with that.”

Huge win with Sure Shot B Last November at Lone Star Park, Hays had the most rewarding win as an owner when Sure Shot B scored a

9-1 upset in the $1,158,941 Texas Classic Futurity (Grade 1). The gelded son of Stoli is owned by Hays in partnership with Charles Forbes Jr. The fourth-fastest qualifier, Sure Shot B earned $501,164 for the win and won the fifth of his six career starts. His lone defeat in 2011 was a sixthplace finish in the Ruidoso Futurity (G1). Hays is pleased that his champion emerged from the race in excellent condition and is training for the 3-yearold derbies at Ruidoso Downs under the watchful eye of trainer John Stinebaugh. The usually laconic Hays has high praise for Sure Shot B as he prepares for his 2012 debut. “He’s 100 percent fit and ready to run,” Hays said. “I believe we have a horse that everyone has to be worried about.”

On Sept. 8, 2006, the Gaston’s filly, First Tea Rose, suffered a severe leg injury in the Sam Houston Futurity. The track veterinarian recommended she be euthanized on the track, but Gaston vividly remembers that trainer Heath Taylor told the vet to wait while he called Dr. Hays. Taylor accompanied the filly in the two-hour van ride to Elgin for evaluation. At 6 a.m. the next morning, Dr. Hays had assembled a team and completed a meticulous surgery that required the insertion of 26 pins, First Tea Rose made a full recovery and has thrived as a broodmare, with five foals to date. “Tommy saved her,” recalls Bob Gaston, who still chokes up recalling the events of six years ago. “She was 30-seconds from being Kudos from trainers euthanized, but Heath made the phone call, and Dr. Hays and breeders performed an amazing sur“I worked for the late gery.

AHC Issues Forum to focus on reinvigorating the horse industry

The American Horse Council has announced that the theme for this year’s National Issues Forum is “Reinvigorating the Horse Industry.” This year’s National Issues Forum will be held on Tuesday, June 26, in Washington, DC during the AHC’s annual meeting. The annual meeting will run from June 24 to 27 at the Washington Court Hotel and will include the AHC’s Congressional Reception, the annual Congressional Ride-In, and sessions on federal advocacy. This year’s meeting will also include the AHC’s Breed Roundtable, a popular event that brings together leaders of horse associations to discuss common issues of importance to the industry. The AHC’s various committees and the Unwanted Horse Coalition will also meet to discuss issues affecting the equine community. Over the last few years the number of horses bred and overall participation in equine activities has declined. Clearly, a major factor is the downturn in the economy; but there is a growing concern in the industry that the longstanding connection between horses and people is at risk for additional reasons. Many organizations are looking at how they can get more people active with horses, attract more participants and spectators to their events, and restore the demand for horse ownership by growing the horse community. “Several national organizations have undertaken market-

ing initiatives to reinvigorate the industry. They are addressing what can be done to bring back those who may have left and attract new people. The Forum is an opportunity to hear from those organizations attacking this problem and to hear what they are doing,” said AHC president Jay Hickey. The Forum will also include presentations on the evolving changes in federal advocacy. “Advances in technology and social media and how constituents can contact their federal officials have affected grassroots activities. What other groups are doing and what kind of success they have had in mobilizing their members with new technologies will be addressed,” said AHC Director of Legislation Ben Pendergrass. Regardless of the method, grassroots activities are important to success in Washington and at the state and local level. Speakers will address these advocacy issues at the Forum. The AHC will be hosting its Breed Roundtable. This event was brought back last year and proved so popular that it will be done again. It allows leaders of horse organizations involved in various disciplines to visit with each other and discuss issues of common concern. The annual Congressional Ride-In will take place on Wednesday, June 27. 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 you don’t attend the AHC convention. Congress deals with many issues that impact the horse industry, including taxes, gaming, immigration, access to trails and public lands, diseases, and interstate and international movement of horses. This is an opportunity for the horse community to come to Washington in force and meet with their Senators, Representatives, and staffs. “The Ride-In puts an individual 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 voters, the horse people from back home who can tell Congress firsthand about the horse industry in their 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 or 202-296-4031. More information on these Forums and the entire AHC annual meeting, including registration and hotel information can be found on the AHC’s website, http://horsecouncil. org/events.php or by contacting the AHC.

Vinton, LA 2012 American Quarter Horse meet began April 27 at Delta Downs By Martha Claussen

Delta Downs Racetrack Casino & Hotel will kick-off its 2012 Quarter Horse Season on Friday, April 27. Opening night will feature trials for

the $55,000-added Alabama Futurity. The stakes schedule offers 27 featured races from April through July 14. A pair of 2-year-old futurities will highlight the Saturday, May 26 card as Delta Downs presents the Louisiana Lassie (RG2) and Louisiana Laddie Stakes (RG2). On July 7, the Firecracker Futurity and Firecracker Derby and the Delta Downs live racing season concludes with the stakes-filled Louisiana Showcase Night. Top horsemen to watch include Heath Taylor; Kenneth L. Roberts, Sr.; Frank Cavazos and Bobby Martinez. Janet VanBebber, who announced last month that she will disperse her public stable by the end of this year, was the leading trainer in earnings last year, finishing the meet in style on Louisiana Showcase Night with three takes wins, including a victory in the $458,180 Lee Berwick Memorial Futurity with Little Bit Trashy. The solid jockey colony includes last year’s leading rider, J. R. Ramirez; Alfonso Lujan; Danny Lavergne and Jeff Jerman. Delta Downs has the support of the Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders Association, (LQHBA) with a strong commitment to the accredited Louisiana Bred racing program. They host an annual Yearling Sale and Fall Mixed Sale and work closely with the American Quarter Horse Association to promote the sport. In 2011, the LQHBA paid out in excess of 4.3 million dollars in breeder (mare) and stallion awards, which offers further incentives for horsemen running at Delta SureBet RacingNews.com, Inc. • May 1, 2012 • Vol. 6 No. 21 13

Downs and all other Louisiana tracks. Since 2001, the LQHBA has given over $239,000 in youth scholarships to graduating high school seniors in Louisiana. Boyd Gaming, a publicly held Las Vegas casino company (NYSE:BYD), acquired Delta Downs in 2001. Slot machines made their debut in 2002. In 2004, another major $50-million expansion took place resulting in their on-site hotel and larger slot facility. The entire team at Delta Downs is eagerly anticipating the return of live racing, according to Steve Kuypers, Delta Downs Vice President and General Manager. “All of us at Delta Downs are looking forward to another exciting season of American Quarter racing in 2012,” said Kuypers. “ Our solid stakes schedule, along with daily programs that offer lucrative purses, sets the stage for another great meeting for both horsemen and horseplayers alike.” Live racing is set for Wednesdays through Saturday with first post at 6:45 p.m. The 46-day meet will continue through July 14.

APRIL 30, 2012 Nicholasville, KY Statement of Policy on race day medication and safety concerns from the Jockey’s Guild The board of directors of the Jockeys’ Guild has voted to adopt the following policy statement concerning race day medications and safety concerns: 1. The safety of human and equine athletes must be paramount at all times in racing. 2. We participate in, and support the mission of, the Racing Medication Testing Consortium board (“RMTC”), which is striving to develop and promote uniform rules, policies and testing standards at the national level; coordinate research and educational programs that seek to ensure the integrity of racing and the health and welfare of racehorses and participants;

and protect the interests of the racing public. 3. The rules regarding race day medication should be uniform throughout the United States through the creation of an Interstate Compact on Horse Racing which will enable states to act cooperatively with more uniform, effective and efficient practices, programs, rules and regulations related to racing. 4. We support the RMTC’s recommendation to reduce the threshold of in-blood for phenylbutazone (“Bute”) from 5 micrograms/milliliter (ug/ml) to 2micrograms/milliliter (ug/ml). 5. We support mandatory PRERACE veterinary exams as the only real guarantee against unsafe horses on the racetrack. We believe there should be a stronger emphasis on the responsibility of the veterinarian in the afternoon to scratch horses that are not warming up soundly during the post-parade. 6. We agree that the improper use of clenbuterol and illegally compounded non-FDA-approved substances is a serious concern. We support the RMTC’s current efforts to determine the withdrawal times before a horse so treated can be allowed to race. 7. We agree that corticosteroids have to be thoroughly studied and limited in use as the science dictates. 8. We support rigorous limits on extracorporeal shock wave therapy. Every owner, trainer, or veterinarian who owns or buys a shock wave therapy apparatus must register it with the Commission, Board of Stewards and race track where it is being used before it is used and give notice every time it is used. Shock Wave therapy needs to be conducted at a designated area, overseen by a regulatory veterinarian or racing official. The details of any such treatment for any horse shall be provided to all jockeys and the horse shall not race within 10 days of treatment as currently stated

in the ARCI Model Rules. 9. We agree that no adjunct race day medications are permissible. 10. We support continuing scientific studies of the safety of utilizing Furosomide (“Lasix”) as a race day medication and will work with the industry to take any actions necessary to ensure safety. If Lasix is used it shall be administered by a regulatory veterinarian.

Thursdays to Sundays, through February. In March racing expands to five days per week, Wednesdays to Sundays. In recent years the season started with five-day weeks before shifting to four-day weeks. “Assigning more dates toward the end of the season allows us to take advantage of historically better weather in March, which we anticipate will result in a net increase in turf races,” said Fair Grounds President Tim Bryant. “We also have found, for a number of reasons, that it’s easier to attract large and competitive fields later in the meet. This shift should improve the quality of our product from day one.” Outside of the normal weekly schedule, special holiday cards will be presented on New Year’s Eve (Dec. 31, a Monday), Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 21, a Monday), Mardi Gras (February 12, a Tuesday) and Washington’s Birthday, also known as Presidents Day (Feb. 18, a Monday). There will be no live racing on Super Bowl Sunday, February 3, when Super Bowl XLVII will be hosted in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The milestone 100th Louisiana Derby will be run as part of the meet’s penultimate card on March 30, a Saturday, five weeks prior to the Kentucky Derby. Closing Day, March 31, coincides with Easter Sunday.

& Hotel on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 17. This year will mark the 10th anniversary of the $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot, which is contested at 1-1/16 miles on a dirt surface. The race is one of the richest in the country for 2-year-olds and will provide a stepping stone to the 2013 Kentucky Derby with its lofty graded stakes purse money. The 2011 edition of the $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot program produced an all-time record handle of $4.4 million, which marked a 16 percent increase over the old record set in 2010, when fans put $3.8 million through the betting windows. The record-setting numbers produced in the last two years came after the race was moved from an evening program on the first Friday in December to an afternoon program in the third week of November. The schedule changes have received overwhelming support nationally from both horsemen and fans alike. The $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot Day program propelled the racetrack to its most successful meet to date. The 2011-2012 meet produced a total of $129,156,637 in handle from all sources compared to $122,282,916 that was wagered during the 2010-2011 season. That represented a 5.62 percent increase year-overyear. “We are extremely proud of the $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot program and how far it has come in just a few short years,” said Paul Chakmak, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Boyd Gaming. “The race has become one of the most important events on the 2-year-old racing calendar each fall and we look forward to even more growth as we celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2012.”

APRIL 29, 2012 SunRay Park, Farmington, NM Favorite Little Bit Southern wins Four Corners Senora Stakes A sharp break from her rail post helped Little Bit Southern score a neck victory in Sunday’s $85,000 Four Corners Senora Stakes (RG3) for New Mexico-bred distaffers at SunRay Park. Prepped by Victor Rodriguez for owner Edilberto Estrada, Little Bit Southern covered her 400-yard trip in :19.362 and earned a 94 speed index. The $51,000 winner’s share of the purse increased her earnings to $247,900 from 32 starts. Even though she broke from post 1, Little Bit Southern was positioned in the middle of the track at the wire. “I knew from looking at her form from Sunland Park that she liked to get out from the rail, but I was OK with that because she has good speed away from the gate and doesn’t bother anybody when she does get out,” said jockey Salvador Martinez, who was riding Little Bit Southern for the first time. “So I let her get out a little bit, and when she hooked up with (runner-up) Wish You Had One To, she came back and ran her race. “She was going really easy at the end,” he added. “I just hit her a couple of times, just to keep her attention on the race.” Little Bit Southern was bred by Richard and Patricia Shearer of Portales, New Mexico. The bay 5-year-old mare’s sire, Southern Corona, is a winning 11-year-old son of the Holland Ease stallion Corona Cartel and the winning and stakes-placed Reb’s Policy

On December 18, the mare scored her first career stakes victory in the 400-yard, $110,000 Lou Wooten Handicap (RG1) at Sunland Park. Little Bit Southern returned a $4.40 win mutuel as the 6-5 favorite in the field of seven. Wish You Had One To finished second and was followed by Wonwabbitwon, Snow Re-

Quiet Oasis

collected his first local stakes win, hope the result was a positive omen for Saturday’s Kentucky Derby. Gutierrez will ride the Reddam-owned I’ll Have Another May 5 as the 3-yearold son of Flower Alley tries to repeat his success in the Santa Anita Derby. A 4-year-old Irish bred filly by Oasis Dream and the Sunday Silence mare Silent Heir, Quiet Oasis, who won by a half-length, had been idle since finishing sixth of eight in the Grade 1 Matriarch last Nov. 25. After recording six drills since March 7, Quiet Oasis was ready to fire for trainer Ben Cecil, winning for the third time in eight starts. Two of her wins have come in four starts in this country. She’s earned $122,379. Completing the mile on turf in 1:34.63 in the Grade 3, Quiet Oasis paid $33.20, $12.60 and $6.40. Briecat, the pacesetter, and Antares World, the longest shot in the cast at 46-1, finished in a dead heat for second. Briecat returned $4 and $4.60 while Antares World paid $19 and $12. Nereid, the 6-5 favorite who was making her 2012

Eyesa Western

debut for trainer John Shirreffs, was fourth, one length behind Quiet Oasis. It was the first loss in four tries over the Betfair Hollywood Park turf course for the 4-year-old daughter of Rock Hard Ten, whose biggest victory came when she finished in a dead heat with Cambina in the Grade 1 American Oaks last July 16. Off the board in her previous two attempts at the Wilshire distance, Quiet Oasis tracked the pace for most of the journey, then wore down Briecat late while outfinishing Antares World. The win was the third in the Wilshire for Cecil, one less than leader Bobby Frankel. The trainer credited Reddam with the decision to run in the Wilshire. “I told him we should run in the 6 ½ furlong allowance (the seventh race May 4) because I thought first time off the layoff she’d be a little keen. “I let him make the call and he made the right one to run here. He gets all the credit. We’ve always thought a lot of her. We’re hoping next time she’ll settle even more. How far she’ll go is a question mark.’’ John Shirreffs, who trains

Nereid for owner Eric Kronfeld, was far from discouraged by her return. Nereid’s most recent race before Sunday was a third in the Queen Elizabeth II Cup, a Grade 1, last Oct. 15 at Keeneland. “She ran really well,’’ he said. “I thought it was a very nice race first time back. We’ll move on from here.’’

APRIL 28, 2012 Delta Downs, Vinton, LA Eyesa Western true to form in Delta Dash

Anireal Chavira’s Eyesa Western is building a career in short-distance races and he raced true to form by winning the $35,000 Delta Dash Stakes over 250 yards on Saturday night at Delta Downs. The Randy Edison-trained Eyesa Western prevailed in the final 50 yards to get neck win in :13.041. Louisianaschoolboy was right there in second while it was one-half length back to Heza Grand Ds Dash in third place. Eyesa Western, the 8-5 favorite, scored his fourth win from 11 starts at the distance to go with one second and a pair of third-place finishes.

The seven-year-old gelding joined the Edison stable last fall and won a 300-yard optional-claiming race in his first start out of his new barn. He then moved up to stakes company with a close second over 250 yards in the Harrah’s Dash and won the 350-yard Swift Stakes by a neck. Runnerup Louisianaschoolboy, a 25-1 long shot, has spent much of his career in the claiming division with a win in a $5,000 starter-allowance race two starts ago for owner Wade Hall III and trainer Willie Simien Jr.

band, Jerry, Bok Man was ridden by their son, Jeff, who arrived just moments before the race. He had ridden the third race at Delta Downs, jumped in his truck and made the twohour drive to Sam Houston. He may have faced traffic on I-10, but navigated a flawless trip on the track, covering 870-yards in :45.791. “I really didn’t think I was going to make it on time, but God willing, it worked out,” said winning rider Jeff Jerman. “I hadn’t had a chance to ride this horse since last year. Dad sent him out to Sunland, but I watched his races. I felt that he wasn’t close enough, so that was what I tried to do tonight. He really has a good finish to him.” It was a jubilant celebration for the Jerman family as the striking gray entered the winner’s circle. “I have to give all the glory to God,” said Cynthia Jerman following the race. “He’s an awesome horse and part of our family. We’ve been hoping for something like this for a long time.” “Jeff did it for us; gave him a great ride,” said Jerry Jerman. “I want to thank everyone involved. Our groom, Jose, broke the horse and did a wonder-

ful job with him. It all came together.” Morning-line favorite Kite Flyer drew the coveted rail post and had the lead under rider Santos Carrizales, until Bok Man slipped by at the wire. “Unfortunately, he hadn’t run this year and needed an out,” said Carrizales. “We thought he was ready with the work we put into him. He’s a nice horse.” Mysterious Streaker ran third, followed by Kudos for Quick Dash, Midnight Bushwhacker and Im A Grand Believer. Bok Man left the gates as the third betting choice and paid $10.80 for the win. He will represent Texas in the $125,000 Red Cell Distance Challenge Championship (Grade 2) on October 27 at Prairie Meadows. Jerman indicated that he might make one more start this meet in the $25,000 Governor’s Cup Marathon on May 19.

Betfair Hollywood Park, Inglewood, CA Unusual Heatwave completes Bejarano quintuple; Willa B Awesome outnods Starry Skies in Melair

Unusual Heatwave, a half-

brother to 2010 winner Alphie’s Bet, collared favored Stoney Fleece in the closing yards to take the $300,000 Snow Chief, capping another memorable California Gold Rush Day for jockey Rafael Bejarano at Betfair Hollywood Park. About 24 hours after he had been sworn in as a United States citizen, Bejarano, 29, won four other races Saturday – three of them stakes – and this was the second time he’s had five wins on a Gold Rush card. The Peruvian-born rider also accomplished the feat in 2009. Through the first three days of the Spring/Summer meet, Bejarano has five stakes wins. The record for a Spring/ Summer season is18, set by Bill Shoemaker during a 77-day meet in 1971. In the day’s second most lucrative event for horses bred or sired in California, Grade 1 winner Willa B Awesome gained another nose victory, taking the $288,000 Melair Stakes. A narrow winner over Reneesgotzip in the Santa Anita Oaks when 13-1 March 31 at Santa Anita, Willa B Awesome prevailed by the same margin Saturday as the 11-10 favorite. The fifth victory in 13

starts for the 3-year-old Awesome Gambler filly out of the Nineeleven mare Cause I’m Tricky came after a race long battle with 2-1 second choice Starry Skies. Making her first appearance on synthetic after winning two turf sprints to begin her career at Santa Anita, Starry Skies took the early lead from Willa B Awesome and held it for all but a jump or two. The final time for the nine furlongs was 1:53.33. Owned by a partnership that includes breeder Terry Lovingier, Phil Daniels, Patsy London and John Winters and trained by Walther Solis, Willa B Awesome, who carried top weight of 124 pounds, seven more than the runnerup, increased her bankroll to $578,896. The chestnut filly has now won three stakes in 2012. Prior to the Melair and Santa Anita Oaks, Willa B Awesome had gone gate-to-wire at 11-1 in the Grade 3 Santa Ysabel Jan. 28 at Santa Anita. She was ridden Saturday by Martin Pedroza, who has been aboard for all but one of her victories. Willa B Awesome paid $4.20, $2.40 and $2.10. Starry Skies, who finished 3 ½ lengths in front of 3-1 third SureBet RacingNews.com, Inc. • May 1, 2012 • Vol. 6 No. 21 23

choice, returned $3.20 and $2.20. The show price on Starlight Magic was $2.40. “ I wasn’t going to let that other filly get away,’’ said Pedroza, back in action less than two weeks after suffering broken ribs in a spill at Santa Anita. “I figured that other filly (Starry Skies) is two-for-two and I can’t let her get away because she might hang in there tough and beat me at the end. “I got side by side with her to make her do a little something. The other filly hung in pretty tough, I’ll give her credit.’’ Getting his first shot at 1 1/8 miles, Unusual Heatwave took full advantage of the opportunity, earning his second win in nine starts and padding his bankroll to $265,262. He’s owned by Ellen and Peter O. Johnson, Sr. and Teresa McWilliams and trained by Alexis Barba, the same connections that campaigned Alphie’s Bet. Making his first start on a surface other than turf since he debuted over the Del Mar Polytrack last Aug. 7, Unusual Heatwave rallied in the center of the track to win by a halflength in 1:51.63.

Mobilized

$3.60 and $2.80. Stoney Fleece, the 19-10 choice, returned $3.40 and $3.20. He finished 1 ¼ lengths in front of maiden Dylan Donnelly. The show price on the 7-1 shot was $4.20. “It was a good trip,’’ said Bejarano, who has 15 Gold Rush wins, second to Victor Espinoza’s 21. “I followed the favorite the whole way and stayed out of trouble. “He was much the best today. At the beginning, it didn’t look like he wanted to go, but at the half-mile pole he really picked it up. I was waiting for the favorite to move by the three-eighths and I decided to wait a little more until I came to the stretch. As soon as we straightened away I let him run and he took off.’’ The easiest of Bejarano’s wins was courtesy of Mobilized, who won the $125,000 Tiznow by 7 ¼ lengths as the 5-2 second choice. Trained by Gary Mandella for owners Double JH Stables, Inc. and the Estate of breeder Robert Reseigne, the 6-yearold son of Soul of the Matter and the Red Ransom mare Valleyofthebells, Mobilized dominated after trailing for the first half mile and despite Bejarano losing his whip with

about three furlongs to run. Covering the 7 ½ furlongs over Cushion Track in 1:29.47, Mobilized won for the sixth time in 22 races. He’s earned $360,080. Third behind Amazombie and Quick Enough in the 2011 Tiznow, Mobilized paid $7.80, $3.40 and $2.80. Italian Rules, the 2-1 favorite, was second, a half-length in front of 15-1 shot Kingpin Ryno. Italian Rules returned $3.60 and $2.40. The show payoff on Kingpin Ryno was $7.20. Another of Bejarano’s winners, Warren’s Jitterbug, also took advantage of a contested pace as she rallied for an 11-1 surprise in the $125,000 B.

Warren’s Jitterbug

Thoughtful Stakes. The win was the most lucrative of three Saturday for owner-breeder Benjamin Warren and trainer Jorge Gutierrez. The pair combined to take the opener, a $50,000 claimer for maiden California bred fillies, with Warren’s Mo Money, then completed the triple with Warren’s Internet in the fourth, the $60,000 Alphabet Kisses. A 5-year-old daughter of Affirmative and the Peaks and Valleys mare Jitterbug Jan, Warren’s Jitterbug won the fourth time in 24 starts. The $71,250 payday pushed her earnings to $355,994. This was her initial win in 10 races over synthetic surfaces.

Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, the all-time leading Gold Rush trainer, added two wins to his total, taking the $72,800 Grey Memo with 8-1 shot Gatheratthealter and the $71,400 Warren’s Thoroughbreds with 2-1 favorite Sparkling Style. The 2 ½ length victory by Sparkling Style, who is owned by Arnold Zetcher, was her second in a Gold Rush event. A year earlier, the daughter of Badge of Silver had earned her maiden victory in the Alphabet Kisses. Joe Talamo rode Sparkling Style, who completed the seven furlongs over Cushion Track in 1:23.71.

The nose win by Gatheratthealter, a $32,000 claim last Dec. 9 by Live Your Dream Racing Stables LLC, which includes longtime handicapper and Television Games Network personality Bob Baedeker, was the 11th in the Gold Rush for Baffert. John Sadler is second with seven wins. A 4-year-old gelded son of Lucky Pulpit and the Nashwan mare Gather the Group, Gatheratthealter, who was ridden by Bejarano, has won five of 14 and earned $79,268. Defeating Relentless Heat by a head, he ran the seven furlongs in 1:23.74. It was his first victory in five outings since he was claimed at Betfair Hollywood Park. The Gold Rush wrapped when Valentine Boy, a 6-1 shot who had been idle since last July 24, won the $60,000 NTRA Stakes under jockey Chantal Sutherland.

Sadie’s Soldier ($12.00) uncorked a giant rally to win the $50,000 John Henry Stakes

for three-year-olds and up at Evangeline Downs Racetrack & Casino on Saturday evening. Sitting back in tenth position of the eleven runners and well off the early pace for most of the race, Sadie’s Soldier and jockey Kerwin Clark were able to weave their way thru traffic on the final turn and in the upper stretch before catching and passing Classic Cascade in the final 50 yards to win by ¾’s of a length. The running time for the distance of about one mile & one sixteenth on a turf course labeled firm was 1:41.05, less than one second off the course record. Classic Cascade, who grabbed the lead in the home stretch from early pacesetter Pirate Island when that one tired after setting early fractions of 22.75, 47.08, and 1:10.85, dug in but was unable to hold off the late charge of the winner while finishing more than three lengths clear of the 2.60 to 1 favorite Merkabah, who finished in third, a nose in front of Dandy’s Legacy.

ran his winning streak to five with a two-length score in Saturday’s 1-mile, $110,000 Jack Cole Handicap (R) for New Mexico-breds at SunRay Park. Under jockey Ry Eikleberry, who has been aboard Our Choice in all of his victories during the streak, the 7-year-old gelding made his eight-furlong trip in 1:38.04 after closing off of solid early fractions of :22.80, :45.85, and 1:11.22. Our Choice was coming off of a Sunland Park campaign in which he won four of his six starts at the meet, including the 4 1/2-furlong, $110,000 Mt. Cristo Rey Handicap (R) in a track-record :49.57 on March 10.

Our Choice was claimed for $25,000 by Stable HMA and trainer Justin Evans on December 27, after the gelding had finished second in a 5 1/2-furlong allowance-optional claiming sprint at Sunland Park. “We were a little concerned about this longer distance, but we knew that he was a router earlier in his career,” said Evans. “The key with this horse is to get him to settle in, and Ry fits him perfectly. If he can get him to settle in and gallop along for a ways until he’s comfortable, when he pushes the button on him he just goes.” Our Choice was bred by

the Owens family’s Triple AAA Ranch, and the gelding is one of 21 stakes winners sired by Desert God, an unraced son of the Mr. Prospector stallion Fappiano and the leading sire of New Mexico-bred Thoroughbreds in 2011. Now 21, Desert God has sired the earners of more than $9.4 million from 144 starters. Owned by H.

share of the Jack Cole Handicap pushed Our Choice’s bankroll to $537,667, of which $201,000 has been earned since the claim. The gelding has won 12 of 47 starts, including four stakes, while racing exclusively in New Mexico. While racing from the barn of David Wolochuk last summer, Our Choice scored a three-quarter length victory in the 7-furlong, $50,000 E.T. Springer Stakes during the New Mexico State Fair portion of The Downs at Albuquerque meet. He also ran second, three-quarters of a length behind longshot winner Lota Talent, in the 7 1/2-furlong, $50,000 Land of Enchantment Handicap (R) at Ruidoso Downs. Evans indicated that Our Choice would be pointed to this year’s 54-day Zia Park meet, which opens Sept. 8. “We’re going to try to give him a little break – he’s definitely earned it,” added the trainer. “We might decide to race him on Zia Day at Ruidoso (on July 29) or Lineage Day at Albuquerque (on August 26), but our big campaign with him is going to be Zia next fall. He has a well-deserved break coming.” Brother Louie finished second in the Jack Cole and was followed by Smash Dancer, On Down The Road, Gotta Move, Attitude E Racer, Double Smart, Rig’s Runner, and Bigtruck El Paso.

Golden Gate Fields, Berkeley, CA Great claim Hudson Landing wins $150,000 San Francisco Mile

Hudson Landing, claimed for $50,000 two months ago by owner Jared Chappel, upset multiple graded stakes-winner Jeranimo in the Grade 3 $150,000 San Francisco Mile at Golden Gate Fields Saturday. Ridden by Juan Hernandez and trained by Blaine Wright, Hudson Landing won Northern California’s top turf race by a half-length over Jeranimo in 1:37.29. Gallant Son, the runner-up in the 2011 SF Mile, finished third in the 2012 edition while making his first start in eight months. The SF Mile win, worth $90,000, was Hudson Landing’s third straight victory since being claimed by Chappel. A 5-year-old gelding, Hudson Landing has earned $129,500 in his three starts for the lucky owner. “I’ve watched this horse for the past two years,” said Chappel. “I put in a claim twice (for $32,000 and $40,000) but lost the shake (a drawing to determine who gets the horse when multiple claims are put in for a runner) before I got him for $50,000.”


RACE RECAPS Hudson Landing won back-to-back allowance races at Golden Gate Fields before scoring his 8-to-1 upset in the SF Mile. “He had to win a couple of times to try this race, and he did that,” said Chappel, who races his horses under the stable name Chappell Alpine Farms. “He loves this track and this grass. To be able to take a shot like this and have it pay off is amazing.” Hudson Landing, who paid $19.60 to win, rallied from sixth in a field of 10 to take the SF Mile. “He relaxed and did everything perfect,” said Hernandez, who has been aboard Hudson Landing for the three-race winning streak. “When we were coming to the quarter pole I moved him outside and hit him, and he took off. He ran strong down the stretch.” The SF Mile is the second stakes victory on the Golden Gate Fields lawn for Hudson Landing, who captured the Alcatraz Stakes on the grass in 2010. Overall, Hudson Landing has 10 wins, five seconds, and three thirds in 29 career starts and $365,688 in earnings. Jeranimo, an owner of four Grade 2 stakes victories, dropped back to ninth in the early stages of the SF Mile and came up just a bit short with his stretch rally. Jeranimo was being ridden for the first time by Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who next Saturday will ride top contender Bodemeister in the Kentucky Derby. “I didn’t have a very good trip,” said Smith. “I got him to relax but he relaxed a little bit too much. I got caught behind a bunch of horses that were stopping and I had take the overland trip and ended up going too wide. I think he was the best horse, but you have to

give the winner credit. He ran a very good race.” So did Gallant Son, who was making his first start since Aug. 17 and was beaten only 1 1/4 lengths by Hudson Landing. “He ran a great race,” said jockey Leslie Mawing of Gallant Son. “I wish he’d had a race under his belt because then he would have been super tough.”

Lone Star Park, Grand Prairie, TX Endorsement powers past rivals to take Texas Mile

Casner Racing’s Endorsement, a five-year-old horse trained by Eoin Harty and ridden by Robby Albarado, powered past favored Canonize in deep stretch to win the 16th running of the Grade 3, $200,000 Texas Mile for threeyear-olds and upward over a fast main track at Lone Star Park on Saturday. A Grade 3 winner at three who was forced to the sidelines just prior to the 2010 Kentucky Derby, Endorsement has now won two consecutive races this year and provided Harty with his first Lone Star stakes win since R Fast Lady in 2005. “Even after his last, final workout for Derby week, I still thought he was my best chance at that point,” recalled Albarado of Endorsement. “I’ve ridden quite a few Kentucky Derbies and I thought he was the one. Unfortunately he got injured, but the fortunate thing is he got back. He’s back healed again and is getting better and better, and Mr. Casner gave me the opportunity to ride him again.” Endorsement was able to save ground while stalking fractions of 23.70, 46.97 and 1:11.42, then was shifted off the rail by Albarado near the quarter pole after Victor Espinoza, riding runner-up Canonize, had moved past him while 30 SureBet RacingNews.com, Inc. • May 1, 2012 • Vol. 6 No. 21

four wide around that turn. “I want to give full compliments to a very professional jockey,” said Harty. “It was a very professional ride. I told Robby, put this horse on the lead and stay off the fence. Things didn’t work out that way when the gates opened. When you’ve got a cool rider, and experienced rider, you get these results.” The $110,000 winners share of the purse boosted Endorsement’s lifetime earnings over half a million dollars from four wins in eight career starts. “It’s so much fun to win this race at Lone Star Park, in my hometown,” said owner Bill Casner. “This horse is a really special horse. He is a typical Distorted Humor. He’s got so much grit and try. He ran just an incredibly gritty race today, and Robby rode him to a tee. Just couldn’t be happier.” Endorsement paid $7.00, $3.40 and $2.80, runner-up Canonize returned $2.80 to place and show, and Get in Da House paid $5.60 to show. Coyote Legend, Moonshine Mullin, Oak Motte, Omniscient, Lydia’s Last Step, Fifteen Love and Hurricane Ike completed the order of finish.

Betfair Hollywood Park, Inglewood, CA Utopian earns first stakes win

After tracking a slow pace

throughout, Utopian edged Smug in the final strides to win the $98,000 Inglewood Handicap Friday at Betfair Hollywood Park. The first night program of the Spring/Summer meet also produced the season’s initial Pick Six carryover. The carryover for Saturday, which features the 13th California Gold Rush, is $65,323. Post time is 1 p.m. The Pick Six will begin in the fifth race, which is the $70,000 Grey Memo Stakes. Scheduled post time is 3:06 p.m. The Grade 3 Inglewood was reduced to four starters after the earlier scratch of Acclamation, the prohibitive

morning line favorite and the champion older male of 2011. Scheduled to make his first start since winning the Clement L. Hirsch last Oct. 2 at Santa Anita, Acclamation, a 6-year-old son of Unusual Heat, was declared from the Inglewood after taking what trainer Don Warren termed “some bad steps’’ following a Thursday morning gallop. “We’re not sure what was going on, but I saw what I saw and we can’t take any chances,’’ said Warren, who trains Acclamation for owner-breeders Bud and Judy Johnston and Peter and Mary Hilvers. “He’ll go back to the track (Saturday) and we’ll see if he’s OK. We took x-rays and everything was nice and clean and cold.’’ In the Eclipse Award winner’s absence, Utopian earned his first stakes win in his fourth attempt in a graded event. His best previous effort was a second – defeated by a head – in the Grade 2 San Marcos Stakes won by Slim Shadey Feb. 11 at Santa Anita. Owned by Jerry and Ann Moss and trained by John Shirreffs, the 5-year-old Rock Hard Ten horse out of the Storm Cat mare Storm Alert prevailed by a head as the 2-1 second choice. 32 SureBet RacingNews.com, Inc. • May 1, 2012 • Vol. 6 No. 21

Giving Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith his third Inglewood win in the last four years, Utopian completed the 1 1/8 miles on turf in 1:48.73. The victory was the dark bay’s third in 11 starts and pushed his earnings to $183,180. Trying to provide Hall of Fame trainer Neil Drysdale with back-to-back wins in the Inglewood after he won with Liberian Freighter in 2011, Smug couldn’t quite hold after setting leisurely 25.75, 50.23 and 1:14 2/5 splits for the first six furlongs. Holladay Road, the 3-5 favorite, was 1 ½ lengths back in third and Haimish Hy, who has lost eight in a row since winning the 2010 Hollywood Derby, wound up 4 ½ lengths behind the public choice. Now 2-for-3 over the Betfair Hollywood Park grass, Utopian paid $6.80 and $5.40. The place price on Smug was $6. There was no show wagering. “It was a great win for him,’’ said Smith, who also took the 2009 Inglewood with Madeo – for Shirreffs and the Mosses – and again in 2010 with Gallant Son. “(Utopian) deserves something like this. “He’s been running well. He just got beat by a head two

races back (San Marcos Stakes at Santa Anita) and was forced to make a real early move last time out (the San Luis Rey Stakes), so it was nice to come back today and get it done. “They were going really slow and I knew it was going to turn in to a sprint for home. I tried to move up on the leader early so I could get my momentum going and it worked.’’ Later in the evening, jockey Iggy Puglisi picked up his first win at Betfair Hollywood Park in 17 months when guiding 6-1 shot Woodman’s Lass to a come-from-behind score for trainer Paul Aguirre in the seventh. The last local victory for Puglisi, 38, prior to Friday was with 28-1 outsider Ghost N Your Heart – also for Aguirre – in the fourth race Nov. 27, 2010. A series of eight stakes races for horses bred or sired in California, the Gold Rush has purses totaling $1.11 million. Saturday also will bring a Fans Choice Giveaway, a promotion which features some past giveaway items. The souvenirs are available one per paid admission while

supplies last. The two richest Gold Rush events are the $300,000 Melair for 3-year-old fillies and the $300,000 Snow Chief for 3-year-old colts and geldings. Both will be contested at 1 1/8 miles over Cushion Track.

Bejarano sworn in as U.S. citizen

Some two months after passing his test, jockey Rafael Bejarano was sworn in as a United States citizen Friday. A 15-time riding titlist in Southern California, Bejarano, 29, was inducted in a ceremony Friday in Louisville, Ky. before flying back to California so he could honor his mounts in the evening at Betfair Hollywood Park. A winner of more than 2,700 races and over $123 million in purses, Bejarano was extremely proud of his status. “I’m really happy,’’ he said. “It was a big step for me. There were about 400 others who became citizens. “My good friend Julio Espinoza was there and so was Dante Zanelli, Jr., who brought me here to the United States. Dante lives in Kentucky now so he was happy to be there and enjoy everything with me.

APRIL 26, 2012 Betfair Hollywood Park, Inglewood, CA American Act overcomes turn issues in Henson; Bejarano, Delgadillo win pair on opening day

Despite drifting out badly entering the stretch, favored American Act was able to get up and defeat Senor Rain by a nose in the $72,350 Harry Henson Stakes on Thursday, opening day of Betfair Hollywood Park’s Spring/Summer meet. Ridden for the first time

by Rafael Bejarano, the 3-yearold Quiet American gelding earned his second win in six starts for Howard and Janet Siegel Racing LLC and trainer Jack Carava. In a race switched from turf to Cushion Track due to earlier rain, American Act completed the six furlongs in 1:11.00. This was the first time the Henson, named in honor of the legendary track announcer, had been run on something other than grass since Salish Shaman won under jockey Laffit Pincay, Jr. in 1999. Cutting back in distance after finishing seventh of 10 in the Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes March 10 at Santa Anita, the even-money choice was last in a closely bunched field while in the clear after breaking from outside in a field reduced to six starters. However, with about a quarter of a mile to run, American Act bore out and was seemingly out of the race. Once the Henson participants straightened for the stretch, the Kentucky bred surged on the far outside and was able to edge the 9-2 third choice. Out of the Boston Harbor mare Revolutionary Act, American Act increased his earnings to $116,360. He paid $4, $2.60 and $2.10. “He never showed signs

of doing anything like that before,’’ said Carava. “He’s never so much as got out a foot in the mornings, so it was a complete surprise. I don’t know what he was thinking or what made him do it. “Luckily he’s the kind of horse who could overcome it. I kind of gave up hope. In the middle of the stretch, I thought he could be second.’’ Eighth of nine in the Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby in his prior outing April 7, Senor Rain, who finished 1 ¼ lengths in front of 3-1 second choice Consulado, paid $4 and $2.80. The show payoff on Consulado was $2.80. Completing the order of finish were Chickie Charms, Sir Allison and Diamond of Blue. Koast, the 5-2 second choice on Russ Hudak’s morning line, was scratched Thursday morning when the race was taken off the turf. Passing Game was a veterinarian scratch prior to the start. According to Betfair Hollywood Park steward Tom Ward, the Game Plan colt was reported “off in the left front leg.’’ The Henson win was the second in four years for Bejarano, who had tallied with Backbackbackgone in 2009. Besides Bejarano, who also won the fifth with favored Caelis, the only jockey with more than one win was

Agapito Delgadillo. The veteran rider captured the third with 6-1 shot Folk Dancer, then sprung a $106.60 shocker with Banana Split in the sixth. The victory by Banana Split, a 3-year-old Posse filly who had been eased in her debut March 1 at Santa Anita, was the first for trainer Beau Greely since Luv Dragon prevailed July 18, 2010, the final day of the Spring/Summer meet at Betfair Hollywood Park.
