STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – SUNDAY APRIL 12, 2015

first_imgARKANSAS TRAVELER ALL THE RAGE FOR DERBYESPINOZA SAYS PHAROAH DID IT ALL ON HIS OWNMILLER GOES FOR TRAINING CROWN FROM AFARLEGENDARY YCAZA ON HAND FOR WOOLF AWARD Drayden Van Dyke22323282610%$1,506,413 Martin Pedroza18018272310%$781,994 MANNY YCAZA, WINNER OF 1964 WOOLF AWARD ON HAND TODAY            Known as “The Fiery Panamanian” throughout his legendary career, Manuel Ycaza, a winner of the 1964 George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award, will be on hand for today’s Woolf Ceremony honoring Mike Luzzi.“This is the first time I’ve been to Santa Anita in about 25 years,” said Ycaza, 77, who retired with a lifetime win percentage of 22.4. “I first came here when I was 16, in 1954 and I lived in a dormitory. Everything looks about the same and I’m finding my way around pretty good.”Known as a tremendous finisher who due to his intensity “led the league” in riding suspensions, Ycaza noted that he was indeed a pioneer. “I was the first Panamanian and the first Latin jockey to come here,” he said Sunday morning. “Milo Valenzuela was riding here and doing well, but he was born in Texas. I’m very proud that some great Panamanians followed me. Guys like Laffit (Pincay), Braulio (Baeza) and Jacinto Vasquez.”Although Ycaza is commonly associated with several stakes horses trained by James Maloney in the late 1960s such as Gamely, who won the 1968 Santa Margarita Stakes with Ycaza, his first added-money success came much earlier.“I had been leading rider at Golden Gate and my agent, George O’Bryan, got me on a nice filly here named Born Rich. She won the 1958 Santa Margarita and that was my first stakes win here at Santa Anita.”Ycaza, who retired due to injury in 1971, was inducted into Racing’s Hall of Fame in 1977, and made a brief return to the saddle in 1983. When asked to name the best horse he ever rode, he said, “I rode a lot of great horses, Dr. Fager, Lamb Chop, Ridan, Gamely, Dark Mirage, Damascus, Quadrangle, but the best horse I ever rode I think was Bald Eagle. He won the (Washington) D.C. International in 1959 and we came back and won it again in 1960. That was a really big race back then, at a mile and a half on the grass.”Great memories, great riders–What else would you expect when the George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award trophy is on display?

Said Jerry Hollendorfer: “Words can’t describe it.”Pharoah’s victory, the first in which he did not lead virtually from start to finish, as he did in his previous three triumphs, by a combined margin of 14 ¼ lengths, showed a new dimension, as if he needed one–stalking.Bridget’s Big Luvy, at 38-1, led until the three-quarter marker in the mile and an eighth race, then Victor Espinoza “moved at will to collar the leader in the second turn” . . . and the bay son of Pioneerof the Nile owned and bred by Ahmed Zayat “drew out as he pleased through the stretch without being asked for his best,” according to the Equibase chart.Espinoza never moved on the horse through the lane.“Moved?” observed one insider, eyebrows raised. “Hell, he never even said ‘giddy up.’”Bob Baffert watched the race on TV from his base at Santa Anita, leaving the maneuvers of execution to assistant Jim Barnes.“I was ecstatic,” Baffert said Sunday morning of American Pharoah’s performance. “I liked the way he shut it down. We thought he might be able to do that, but you don’t know until you actually do it in a race, because the adrenalin’s going through and everything else.“He got bumped leaving there a bit, and sometimes that gets them all charged up. But he was just so professional. I couldn’t have been happier the way it turned out. He got some things his own way, but it was good he showed he was not one dimensional; that’s a big plus.”Undefeated Dortmund, the gargantuan Santa Anita Derby winner and the other half of Baffert’s one-two Derby punch–call them The Dazzler and The Diesel–will leave Santa Anita for Kentucky April 26, Baffert said. American Pharoah leaves Arkansas tomorrow for Louisville, while Santa Anita Derby runner-up One Lucky Dane will ship to Louisville on an as-yet-to-be determined date.As American Pharoah and Dortmund continued to trump each other en route to the Derby, the fact remains that the playoffs are now over, and a full field of 20 could enter the starting gate for the mile and a quarter classic.Or not. Perhaps the 2015 Run for the Roses is a fait accompli.“If there ever was a year there shouldn’t be 20 horses in the Kentucky Derby,” said trainer Jim Cassidy, “it’s this year.” Mario Gutierrez1141016109%$559,052 Joseph Talamo25527274311%$1,875,618 Peter Eurton8815131517%$880,676 JockeyMts1st2nd3rdWin%Money Won Ron Ellis651551023%$605,440 Aaron Gryder9071188%$447,670 John Sadler14222201915%$1,485,820 Fernando Perez2101824279%$880,888 Edwin Maldonado12918131414%$625,704 Corey Nakatani11419111617%$933,348 Thomas Proctor5787314%$582,078 Doug O’Neill18923172512%$1,127,792 Steve Knapp4172317%$289,447 Felipe Valdez9813121613%$429,837 (Current Through Saturday, April 11) Flavien Prat16018182011%$989,114 Brice Blanc6273511%$343,340 Richard Baltas841715720%$751,585 Martin Garcia15130201720%$2,758,740 Jerry Hollendorfer17230222617%$3,323,658 Bob Baffert11326191523%$2,961,522 Elvis Trujillo23926352511%$1,545,808 Richard Mandella7217101324%$1,027,996 Michael Pender5489615%$221,950 A.

I wanted to let him run a little, but I looked back and I was so far in front, I slowed him down a little bit. He did it all on his own, basically.“Bob Baffert didn’t want me to win by that many lengths, but sometimes you can’t help it. I know it’s only three weeks until the Kentucky Derby and you want to save as much as you can for that race.“But with a horse like him, he does things so easy, it was all I could do.” FINISH LINES: Peter Miller, currently tied with Jerry Hollendorfer for Santa Anita’s training lead at 30 wins each, has horses entered in four races today in an attempt to take the lead. Hollendorfer has 8-5 morning line favorite The Kentuckian going in race eight, the San Pedro Stakes. Winning would be more special, Miller said, “because I don’t think there’s ever been a trainer who’s won a meet from a training center. We’re going to try. We’re going to run everything we can. Jerry’s won enough titles.” Miller is based at San Luis Rey Downs . . . Hollendorfer said Santa Anita Handicap winner Shared Belief is scheduled to breeze Tuesday at Golden Gate Fields and leave Wednesday for Saturday’s $1.5 million Charles Town Classic in West Virginia . . . Trivia question: approximately how many Americans work in the horse industry? 2.1 million, 4.6 million, 500,000, or 5.8 million . . . Richard Mandella said two-time champion Beholder came out of her 2015 debut romp in the Santa Lucia Stakes in good order and is ticketed for the Grade I Vanity Stakes on May 9 and a possible meeting with streaking stakes winner Warren’s Veneda, trained by Craig Lewis. It would be mindful of the 1995 Santa Anita Derby, when Larry the Legend, trained by Lewis, lunged at the last second to hang a desperation head defeat on Afternoon Deelites, trained by Mandella. “That,” recalled Mandella, “was a nightmare.” . . .

first_imgKAREN HEADLEY, SAN ONOFRE, WINNER: “I’m very, very pleased . . . The strategy worked out perfect, finally. His last two sprints he had gone against monsters, not that this was a soft field, but there was no Masochistic in here.”“He’ll probably come back in the California-bred stake ($150,000 Donald Valpredo California Cup Sprint at six furlongs Jan. 30).” Bruce Headley explains his wife’s nom de course, Matson Racing: “Aase’s father shipped ammunition for three different wars using Matson Shipping Company. They shipped during the Korean War, World War II and Vietnam. The morning of Pearl Harbor, he was actually there in the harbor but they received a warning so he decided to ship out before the bombings began.” TRAINER QUOTES NOTES: The winning owner is Aase Headley of Arcadia, who campaigns as Matson Racing. JOCKEY QUOTES             ALEX SOLIS, SAN ONOFRE, WINNER: “He’s been training really, really good. He’s a different horse these last six months, he’s a different horse in the mornings, you can see it. He’s stronger and happier and he showed it today.“Karen and Bruce and myself, we’ll all sit down and discuss what’s best for him and go from there.” BRUCE HEADLEY, BREEDER OF SAN ONOFRE, WINNER: “Really good way to start the New Year; my daughter did a helluva job.“I wasn’t overly confident today, because these are all real nice horses and great trainers. I knew it’d be tough. I’m more excited for Alex than I am myself. Alex has a lot left in him, which he showed today. Me, I’m on borrowed time.“Karen did a great job, I had nothing to do with it.

I wish they were here, but it’s good to be here in their stead. We didn’t know if she could get the mile and a quarter, and we didn’t know if she could get the mile and an eighth in the Mabee. She surprised us there, and she got the lead here. She just cruised, and Flav rode great. (Richard) Mandella and the whole barn were incredible. She has a lot of speed and she can rate, but there wasn’t a lot of speed in the race. The Stidham horse (Zipessa) was the only other speed. As long as Avenge relaxed, we thought we’d be OK out there, and she obviously did it.” JOCKEY QUOTESFLAVIEN PRAT, AVENGE, WINNER: “She’s getting better with each race. She really surprised me out there today. Once I let go she really got comfortable and took the lead. Honestly, that was a lot of fun and we’ll see how she does for the Breeders’ Cup; it’s a big one.” -30-center_img NOTES: The winning owner is Ramona Bass of Fort Worth, Texas.last_img read more
