The 2015 campaign at Hastings Racecourse is off and running with unseasonably favourable weather which has contributed to above budget wagering handles and fuller fields to start the season. The Sea to Sky Pick 6 was introduced on opening day and it has been a wagering success as the pools have been solid and amazingly the jackpot has been hit three times already this spring. The wager is a $0.20 base wager and is the mirror image of the Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream Park in which half of the pool is paid out every day to the most winners during the sequence, while the other half carries over if there is no solo winning ticket. The jackpot is only paid out if there is one lone winning ticket.

The incentive programs set in place last fall have proven to be successful as the field size has risen to almost one horse per race to start the 2015 year. The $2,000 wintering money bonus for horses that ran for $5,000 or less that did not race elsewhere throughout the winter and came back to make their first start at Hastings, has seen 91 horses to date take advantage of that incentive program. The 2 year olds that ran last year and raced back in 2015 as three year olds for $5,000 or less also qualified. The Ship N Win program has also boosted field size this spring as horses coming in from other jurisdictions that race at Hastings three times in 2015 qualify for special bonuses. They receive $500 plus a 30% top-up on their earnings in their initial start at Hastings, then they will receive $500 for the second start and $2,000 more after their third race here in Vancouver.

The usual suspects are on top the trainer’s standings early in the year; Craig MacPherson, looking for his third consecutive training title, Mike Anderson, currently on top, Troy Taylor and Dino Condilenios are also off to great starts. The jockey’s standings sees former Hastings leading rider, who took up training horses last year Pedro Alvarado, near the top. Pedro decided to trade in his trainer’s license and return to the saddle after a one year career change. Perennial top rider Richard Hamel is also getting to the winner’s circle frequently and this battle will likely go right down to the end of the season in late October.

It appears that there will be at least nine three year olds to join American Pharoah in the starting gate for the147th running of the Belmont Stakes, as he tries to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed won the title in 1978. The race will be run on Saturday, June 6th at approximately 3:00 p.m. our time.

Racing resumes at Hastings Racecourse tomorrow with seven races on tap and bettors will be greeted with a $10,300 Sea to Sky Pick 6 carryover.

Emerald Downs Wrap-Friday, May 29

AUBURN, Wash. (May 29, 2015) – Italian Warrior held off Cinematic Cat for a head victory Friday in the $11,900 Copiers Northwest Purse at Emerald Downs.

With Julien Couton riding, Italian Warrior ran six furlongs in 1:10.93 and returned $5.40, $3.60 and $2.60. Blaine Wright is the trainer for owners Luigi DiPietro and Diana DiPietro.

A 4-year-old Arkansas-bred, Italian Warrior has now won two straight after losing his first 11 starts. His overall record is 13-2-6-0, with earnings of $34,182. Friday, he swept past Cantcatchme in mid-stretch, opened a two-length advantage, and then was all-out to hold off Cinematic Cat.

Cinematic Cat, ridden by Jake Barton, finished with a late rush and was clearly second best. The runner-up paid $4.40 and $3.40.

It was 4 ½ lengths back to Kendini, a 27-to-1 long shot, and a $3.60 show payoff. Touch of Danzig finished fourth and Cantcatchme, the 9-to-10 favorite, faded to fifth.

NOTES: New track announcer Matt Dinerman called Friday’s third and fourth races, nailing both calls including a blanket four-horse finish won by Hot Bobby ($11.60) in race three. Dinerman is slated to call three races Saturday including the opener for Quarter Horses. . .Incidentally, Hot Bobby was the1,000th horse on the grounds when the track recently hit that milestone for the first time in four years. . . Robert Geller’s final day is June 7, and Dinerman takes over for good June 12. . .Italian Warrior ($5.40), Seadrifter ($7.80) and Wedding Kake ($6.60) became the 13th, 14th and 15th horses with two wins at the meet. . .Julien Couton rode two winners to extend his lead to 24-19 over Juan Gutierrez and Leslie Mawing atop the riders’ standings. . .Natasha Coddington rode first-time starter Rahys Ransom to a $47.40 upset in the nightcap for trainer Howie Gibson. Two of Coddington’s three wins at the meet have been on 22-to-1 long shots. . .Live Like Mike ($4.20) prevailed in Race 2 to give trainer Roddina Barrett her first win of the meeting. . .Live racing continues Saturday with first post 2 p.m. Charlie Thomas makes his Emerald Racing Club debut in race eight (5:28 p.m.) and is 5-to-2 on the morning line.

Secretariat’s Birthplace Named ‘Historic’

With American Pharoah attempting to make history June 6 by becoming the 12th Triple Crown winner, another bit of history was taking place in Doswell, Va., as the birthplace of 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat, located in The Meadow Event Park in Caroline County, was named to the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service May 28.
