Del Mar Concludes Fifth Fall Season Up in Total Handle

Starting Gate | Benoit Photo

Following on the heels of a stellar summer season, Del Mar Thoroughbred Club completed its fifth fall meet Sunday, highlighted by gains in total handle and four weeks of safe racing. All sources wagering for the 16-day session registered $165,289,183, compared to the 2017 total handle of $154,069,710, an increase of 7.3%.

“The fall meet has found its niche and that’s important for the overall health of the California racing calendar,” said DMTC CEO Joe Harper. “All in all, we are pleased with the results and when you combine them with the summer and our continued efforts to provide the safest possible environment for our horses and riders, it was a terrific year.”

Del Mar’s 2018 fall racing festival had several standout performances, including a smart victory in the Grade I Hollywood Derby by Peter Brandt’s Raging Bull on closing Saturday, then an equally impressive triumph by Sol Kumin, Michael Caruso and Robert LaPenta’s Uni the next day in the Grade I Matriarch.  Both of those eastern-based horses are trained by the country’s top conditioner, Chad Brown, and both were ridden by former three-time Del Mar riding champion Joel Rosario.

Trainer Peter Miller continued his hot run at Del Mar by winning his fourth fall conditioning crown with 15 victories, while jockey Drayden Van Dyke captured his first fall title with 17 firsts. The pair had swept the 2018 summer honors previously with 31 scores for Miller and 42 for Van Dyke during the 36-day stand.

Del Mar will resume racing on Wednesday, July 17 for its showcase summer season, the 80th in its long and popular seaside run.

VICTOR ESPINOZA BACK AT DEL MAR WITH OPTIMISTIC REPORT

Hall of Fame jockey Victor Espinoza was back at Del Mar Saturday for the first time since incurring a fractured vertebra and spinal cord trauma in a training accident here on July 22.

The official duties for Espinoza were to present the trophy to the winner of the Grade I $300,000 Hollywood Derby – which he did to owner Peter Brant and jockey Joel Rosario of Raging Bull with A-list acting brothers Luke and Owen Wilson alongside. Before and after the ceremony, however, Espinoza used the occasion to provide some good news to fans, horsemen and followers.

“My body is getting stronger day by day,” said Espinoza, whose initial treatment was done at Scripps La Jolla and who has been recuperating at his Del Mar residence. “Last week I saw my doctor and they checked the MRI and it came out perfect. I was surprised but really happy. Everything is coming along well and I don’t need surgery, which is great. My spinal cord has healed perfectly fine, which was my main concern.

“I think by sometime in January at Santa Anita I’ll be ready to ride again.”


LATE DOUBLE SATURDAY VAULTS VAN DYKE TO JOCKEY LEAD

Victories aboard Kingly ($10.20) in Saturday’s eighth race and Super Patriot ($16.00) in the nightcap, both for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, moved Drayden Van Dyke one in front of Flavien Prat, 17-16 atop the jockey standings entering today’s final day of racing.

Prat, who won the 2017 Summer and Fall meeting riding championships, and Van Dyke, who supplanted Prat this summer, entered Saturday’s program tied with 15 wins each. Prat moved ahead with a first-race win aboard Swamp Souffle for trainer George Papaprodromou before Van Dyke’s closing flurry.

The closing day schedules, each with five mounts, for the two contenders are as follows:

Van Dyke: Powder (2nd, 9-5), Adorably Sweet (6th, 3-1), Insta Erma (7th, 12-1), Red Lightning (8th, 7-2), Felix Leiter (9th, 8-1).

Prat: Arch Anthem (3rd, 3-1), Blitzkrieg (5th, 3-1), Dr Wysong (6th, 12-1), Vasilika (7th, 7-2), Captain Scotty (8th, 2-1).


MILLER COMPLETES SWEEP OF DEL MAR TRAINING TITLES

The fall training title which Peter Miller essentially secured with a four-win day halfway through the meeting – and shortly after he appropriately recorded his 1,000th career win at the track near his Encinitas home – gave him a sweep of the Del Mar seasons.

Miller took the summer crown by a 10-win margin (31-21) over Doug O’Neill and holds an unreachable 14-9 advantage over Jerry Hollendorfer entering the closing day program today for the fall meeting.

Miller becomes a Man For Both Seasons for the second time. In 2014 he shared the summer title with Hollendorfer and won the inaugural fall meeting outright. Miller tied for second, two wins behind in the fall of 2015, but has now won three straight by comfortable margins. Miller, who averaged 15.7 wins for the first four fall meetings, has three entered on the final card.


STATS DON’T LIE: BAFFERT’S AWESOME YEAR WITH DEBUT 2-YEAR-OLDS

Every year Bob Baffert unveils a bounty of 2-year-old winners at any track where he’s got a stable, but especially at Del Mar. And if you thought 2018 might have been an exceptional year for Baffert, research by venerable racing podcaster and columnist Ron Flatter has proved you royally right.

Flatter compiled a list of Baffert first-time starting 2-year-olds this year – down to Kingly winning Saturday’s eighth race, and the numbers are impressive. His overall 2-year-old record: 51 starters, 29-4-5.

Through Saturday, Baffert’s debuting babies have a record of 19 wins from 29 starters with one second and two thirds. That’s nearly a 66 percent win rate and 76 percent in the money.

At Del Mar during the summer meeting Baffert harvested 11 wins from 13 debut starters. One of those victories came at the expense of another Baffert trainee in the same race. Game Winner, who would go on to win the Del Mar Futurity and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, was one of the babes of summer. So were Roadster and Mother Moher.

During fall racing at Del Mar, Baffert sent out seven first-time starters and won three times – with Coliseum on November 17, Quahira on November 25 and Kingly on Saturday.

RAINS SHRINK FIELD SIZE NUMBERS … BUT WHO’S COMPLAINING?

Entering the final week of the meeting, the racing office could anticipate average field size numbers for the fall meeting to be close to the outstanding 8.5 of 2017.

Then rains hit Thursday and carried over into Friday. Seven races were taken off the Jimmy Durante Turf Course and switched to the main track. Twenty-four horses were scratched rather than make the switch.

Racing Secretary David Jerkens now projects an average field size of 7.7 in the final analysis after the finale today.

Fair to say that the meeting was to use a phrase of announcer Trevor Denman, “Moving like a winner,” until Mother Nature intervened?

“I think that’s a fair assessment,” Jerkens said.

In many ways, rain is always a blessing in arid Southern California. And betting opportunities may be considered a small price to pay by those who remember the tinder-dry conditions of North San Diego County one year ago next week, which fueled fires that devastated San Luis Rey Downs.

“We’re pleased with the meeting from a quality standpoint,” Jerkens said. “We’re finishing especially strong this weekend with the Hollywood Derby and Matriarch fields and I thought the Thanksgiving Week cards were also very good.

“Thanks to the local horsemen, and those who shipped in from out of state, for their support. We knew going in that the bar had been set high last year and there were some issues, not unique to Del Mar, that we’d have to be dealing with.

“When it’s all over, we’ll take a look at what went right and wrong and evaluate what to do looking forward to next year.”

Rosario, Brown Complete Grade I Sweep as Uni Wins Matriarch

Uni (GB) | Benoit Photo

Uni © Benoit Photo

Providing jockey Joel Rosario and trainer Chad Brown with a sweep of Del Mar’s two Grade I stakes events this weekend, Great Britain-bred Uni rallied from next-to-last with a blazing burst of speed in the stretch to win the $300,000 Matriarch Stakes Sunday, closing day of the 16-day fall racing season.

Content to allow Uni to lag in the early stages of the one-mile race over the infield Jimmy Durante Turf Course, Rosario steered his mount to the outside at the top of the stretch and the four-year-old daughter of More Than Ready responded brilliantly to overhaul 25-1 longshot Daddy Is a Legend in the last half-dozen strides and win by a length in 1:34.35.

Daddy Is a Legend, piloted by Manny Franco, appeared all over a winner until overtaken by the winner and was a length and one-quarter in front of third-place Quidura, also trained by Brown.  The 2-1 favored Vasilika was a neck farther back in fourth in pursuit of her ninth straight victory. Withdrawn from the race for older fillies and mares was Ms Bad Behavior.

Rosario and Brown teamed to win Saturday’s $300,000 Hollywood Derby in similar come-from-behind style with the talented Raging Bull. They also won the 2017 Matriarch renewal with Off Limits, and Rosario won the race in 2014 aboard La Tia.

Uni, owned by Head of Plains Partners and Bethlehem Stables, scored her fourth consecutive stakes win in four starts this year. Sent off at 5-1, Uni paid $13.20, $6.40 and $5 while earning $180,000 to swell her bankroll to $892,880. Daddy Is a Legend paid $16.40 and $10.80, while Quidura returned $6.40.


JOEL ROSARIO (Uni, winner) – “I could tell they were going a little quick up front, because my filly has some speed and we were far back. But she was comfortable, so I was too. I just wanted to make one move with her. About the three furlong (pole) I could feel she was good under me. So we went outside and she went on with it. She’s a nice one.”

MANUEL FRANCO (Daddy Is a Legend, second) – “I had the perfect trip; couldn’t have asked for better. We were outside and she fired. Just what I wanted. But the winner was just too good today.”

JOSE ORTIZ (Quidura, third) – “No complaints from me.  I was in a good spot with her; tucked her in right where I wanted to be.  Then we came running. She fired; we just weren’t quite good enough this time.” 

JOSE HERNANDEZ, assistant to Chad Brown (Uni, winner) – “It was not the plan (to be so far back). We told Joel to break with the field and see what happens. (Uni) can come from behind or be up close. I was a little nervous being so far behind, but she was really, really strong in the stretch. It’s a really great experience for me and it’s really nice for my boss. It’s my first time to (stand in and saddle stakes winners in 11 years working for Brown) at Del Mar, but I’ve done it in other places. (Brown) is one of the best men I’ve ever known and he has very good horses.”


FRACTIONS:  :22.80  :46.29  1:10.59  1:22.76  1:34.35


The stakes win was the second of the meet and third (he won it last year with Off Limits and in 2014 with La Tia) in the Matriarch for rider Rosario.  He now has 26 stakes wins at Del Mar.

The stakes win was the second of the meet and the second (he won it last year with Off Limits) in the Matriarch for trainer Brown. He now has seven stakes wins at Del Mar, six of them in Grade I races.

The winning owners are Head of Plains Stable of Sol Kumin of New York City, Bethlehem Stable of Michael Caruso of Bethlehem, PA, and Robert LaPenta of Yonkers, NY.

Raging Bull, Rosario Win Grade I Hollywood Derby

With a devastating rally in the stretch, 9-5 favored Raging Bull, an Eastern invader piloted by Joel Rosario, powered past a game River Boyne in the final strides to win the Grade I $300,000 Hollywood Derby Saturday at Del Mar.

In scoring his third victory on the program, Rosario was content to allow Raging Bull to cruise along near the rear of the 13-horse field in the early furlongs before turning him loose on the far turn to burst into contention from the outside. Taking dead aim on the 5-2 supported River Boyne, who had surged to the lead in the upper stretch, Raging Bull overhauled his rival nearing the wire to win by a half-length in 1:48.34 for the mile and one-eighth over the infield grass course.

River Boyne, who was piloted by Flavien Prat, was courageous in defeat, finishing two and three-quarter lengths ahead of third-place Instilled Regard, with Prince Earl fourth. Californiagoldrush was withdrawn from the original field.

Chad Brown, the nation’s leading trainer thus far in 2018, conditions Raging Bull as well as Instilled Regard, who was third. Brown won the 2016 Hollywood Derby with Annals of Time.

Raging Bull, a French-bred son of Dark Angel owned by Peter Brant, scored his fifth victory in seven starts and first money of $180,000 increased the bay colt’s earnings to $584,500. He returned $5.80, $3.40 and $2.80. River Boyne paid $3.40 and $2.80, while Instilled Regard returned $4.40 to show.

Rosario, who rode in the West with success for several years before relocating on the East coast, preceded his Hollywood Derby success with wins in the third race, aboard Eddie Haskell ($5), and Sauce On Side ($7.80) in the sixth.

Trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Drayden Van Dyke combined to win the final two races of the afternoon. Kingly took the eighth, paying $10.20, while Super Patriot won the ninth at $16. It was Van Dyke’s 17th win of the fall season, placing him one in front of Prat going into Sunday’s final day of the 16-day meeting.

Post time for the first of nine races Sunday is 12:30 p.m, featuring the Grade I $300,000 Matriarch Stakes for older fillies and mares.


JOEL ROSARIO (Raging Bull, winner) – “I thought I was on the best horse, so I rode him that way. With him, he has a powerful quarter mile kick at the end. Terrific acceleration. So I just needed to keep him outside; keep him in the clear where I could ride him at the finish. It worked out just the way I’d hoped.”

FLAVIEN PRAT (River Boyne, second) – “He ran great; excellent race for him. I think maybe he likes a mile better.”

FLORENT GEROUX (Instilled Regard, third) – “Very good effort from him, especially for his first time on the grass. And he showed good tactical speed; he was right up there with them. That speaks well for the future. He has lots more options now.”

JOSE HERNANDEZ, assistant to Chad Brown (Raging Bull, winner) – “I expected him to be a little closer in the first part. The speed had been holding in the earlier turf races. But he came from off the pace very well. (Joel) Rosario is a good rider and he knows what he’s doing, especially here in California. One (race) down, three (horses to saddle in Sunday’s Matriarch) to go.”


FRACTIONS:  :23.70 :48.20  1:12.48  1:36.74  1:48.34


The stakes win was the first of the meet for rider Rosario and his first in the Hollywood Derby. He now has 25 stakes wins at Del Mar.

The stakes win was the first of the meet, but the second (Annals of Time, 2016) in the Hollywood Derby for trainer Brown. He now has six stakes wins at Del Mar, five of them in Grade I races

Providing Hall of Famer jockey Kent Desormeaux with his second straight victory of the afternoon, Magic Musketier outfinished Extraordinary Jerry in the final strides to win Del Mar’s feature race Friday.

Originally scheduled to be run over Del Mar’s infield grass course, the contest was switched to the main track because of recent rain and remained at one mile. With the switch in surfaces, six horses were withdrawn from the original 12-horse line-up.

Magic Musketier, co-owned by trainer Jerry Hollendorfer and Kenwood Racing, went to the gate at 5-1 and prevailed by a half-length over a game Extraordinary Jerry, 5-2 second choice, after rallying from last place.  Third was Zestful, with 9-5 favored Shadow Sphinx fourth.

Magic Musketier, a son of Musketier bred in Ohio, was timed in 1:37.24 over a track labeled “good” and returned $13, $5.40 and $3.20 after his third win in 18 career outings. Extraordinary Jerry paid $4.20 and $2.40, while Zestful returned $3.40 to show.

Desormeaux also won the fifth race aboard the even-money Easy Shot. The two victories moved him to within seven of the 6,000-winner milestone in his successful career.
