16-year-old jockey wins on first mount at Santa Anita


Citar
Call it beginner's luck or maybe the start of something special, but 16-year-old apprentice jockey Tyler Kaplan, a native of Norco, won on the first mount of his career Thursday at Santa Anita, guiding the 5-year-old mare Soldier Betty to a half-length victory in the fifth race.

"When we hit the wire, it was amazing," Kaplan said. "I couldn't believe it."

Kaplan graduated from high school at 14 after taking online classes. He attended a jockey school in Tehachapi and is an intern at Chris McCarron's North American Riding Academy in Lexington, Ky.

Camarero Horseplayer Wins $4.9 Million
Camarero Race Track had one very satisfied customer March 15, in the form of a horseplayer who walked away from the Puerto Rico track $4.9 million richer.

The winning ticketholder collected his payout on Poolpote, a carryover incentive for pick six bettors at Camarero. To win the Poolpote, the ticketholder must have the lone winning pick six ticket that day.

Poolpote is paid out to the winner, with the remaining 27% carried over to start the next pool.
A single Poolpote combination costs 25 cents. The winning ticket was purchased for $10.30.

According to Camarero president Ervin Rodriguez, Poolpote has been offered for about 12 years, with over 50 winners. The largest payout was more than $14 million in March 2007, after the pool had been building for almost two years.

“I think this carryover is unique in the world,” Rodriguez said. “You won’t find anywhere in the world right now with a carryover as big as this. This is completely tax free, and it’s in U.S. dollars.”

The 27% percent carryover begins the new Poolpote at $1.7 million.

Eskendereya Out of Derby


Eskendereya, the anticipated favorite for the Kentucky Derby, will not run in the May 1 classic due to a slight filling in his left front leg.

Trainer Todd Pletcher made the announcement about Zayat Stables’ 3-year-old son of Giant's Causeway   at a press conference at 9:30 a.m. April 25.

“Yesterday morning I noticed a little bit of filling in his left front leg,” Pletcher said. “We looked at and worked on it overnight but didn’t see any improvement. He’s too special of a horse to take any chances.

“Basically his left leg is filled from his ankle up to the knee,” he said. “We need to get some of that edema out of there before we can do any diagnostics. He’s not uncomfortable. I got him out early this morning on the asphalt and jogged him, and for me, he was slightly off.

“I spoke with Mr. (Ahmed) Zayat and we decided to stop here. The horse is not lame. The horse is slightly off. I haven’t felt like his last couple of gallops have been up to what we normally see. I was hoping that maybe it was attributed to the sloppy track but we’re going to do some more diagnostics later in the week when some of the swelling and filling goes down in his leg. Hopefully it’s nothing that would be career ending, but at this point it’s too premature for me to speculate.”

Eskendereya galloped over a sloppy main track at Churchill Downs April 24, but did not put in a work. Five of Pletcher's Derby contenders did participate in recorded workouts.

Earlier in the morning it was discovered that Eskendereya would not take to the track for his scheduled workout. Soon after that, Churchill Downs officials hastily put together the press conference on the backstretch.

Eskendereya was coming into the Derby off impressive victories in the Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth (gr. II) and Wood Memorial (gr. I). The colt has won four of six starts with one second and earnings of $725,700. Zayat purchased the colt for $250,000 at the 2008 Keeneland September yearling sale.

Pletcher still has plenty of fire power for the Derby with the colts Rule, Super Saver, Mission Impazible, Discreetly Mine, and the filly Devil May Care. Interactif may also be a starter.

“I don’t know if it (Eskendereya’s declaration) changes Interactif’s status,” Pletcher said. “I was hoping to work him this morning but felt the track was still drying out. Even though it may have looked better from a distance it wasn’t as good as it was yesterday. He’ll breeze tomorrow.

“I’d say the biggest impact will potentially be with the filly,” he said. “Obviously that opens up (jockey) John Velazquez which was one of our biggest concerns. Mr. (John) Greathouse is going to come over tomorrow and we’re going to look at it. It swings the pendulum toward her running, but that’s without any confirmation from Mr. Greathouse.”

Devil May Care, owned by the Greathouse family’s Glencrest Farm, became a consideration for the Derby last week. The daughter of Malibu Moon   may be entered in both the Derby and the April 30 Kentucky Oaks (gr. I). She won the nine-furlong Bonnie Miss Stakes (gr. II) at Gulfstream Park March 20 in her last start.

This is the second year in a row that the probable Derby favorite has been scratched prior to the race. Last year, morning line favorite I Want Revenge was scratched on the morning of the race.

Glen Fullerton Wins Nearly 1 Million Dollars With Super Saver Victory


A big-time bet on Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver paid of for racing fan Glen Fullerton.  The Texas resident won a Churchill Down sponsored contest to travel to this year's Kentucky Derby and place a $100,000 bet on who he thought would be the Kentucky Derby 2010 winner.  Fullerton put his contest money on Super Saver, whose odds were 8-1 second choice.

When Calvin Borel guided Super Saver in for the win, the Kentucky Derby dream bet paid off. The 40-year-old Fullerton raked in $900,000. NBC Sports reports that Fullerton chose Super Saver because of Calvin Borel, who had won two of the last three Derbys.

No Belmont Stakes for 'Lucky

On the morning following Lookin At Lucky's victory in the 135th Preakness Stakes May 15, trainer Bob Baffert said the colt would be given a break and will not contest the Belmont Stakes (gr. I) in three weeks.

Trainer Todd Pletcher had already announced that Super Saver, winner of the Kentucky Derby  on May 1, would not race in the June 5 Belmont after his eighth-place finish in the Preakness. This year's Belmont will be the first since 2006 in which neither the Derby nor Preakness winner will compete.

Special Duty Lands Guineas Double Again By DQ

Special Duty completed an amazing English/French One Thousand Guineas double when she was awarded a classic victory once again via disqualification, this time in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches (Fr-I) at Longchamp May 16.

Two weeks ago at Newmarket, the French-based filly also claimed victory in the StanJames.com One Thousand Guineas (Eng-I), after the stewards ruled she had been hampered by Jacqueline Quest, who had finished a nose in front of her. 

This time, Special Duty was promoted to first after a storming late run saw her fall a head short of Liliside at the wire. A stewards’ inquiry was quickly called after the finish due to obvious bumping and interference between several fillies within the final furlong.

Jockey Javier Castellano sets track record at Saratoga with five-straight victories


After losing the first race aboard Frivolous Buck, Castellano won five in a row, setting a course record for consecutive victories.

Jockey John Velazquez holds the Spa record with six in one day, set on Sept. 3, 2001, but not consecutively.

"It's an amazing day," said the 32-year-old Castellano. "I'm so thankful and blessed and appreciate all the trainers that give me support to ride live horses. I've got a lot of confidence in myself. It's a day every jockey looks for, especially at Saratoga were it's such a tough meet."

Castellano won on Yawkey Way ($7.60), Cody Samora ($3.80), Desert Key ($8.80), Fiddler's Chaparito ($5.10) and Stand Proud ($27).

The victory aboard first-time starter Stand Proud was especially impressive.

"He broke slow out of the gate and I didn't rush to give him a chance to let her relax under me," Castellano said. "Turning for home, it was amazing, when I asked he took off and I knew by the eighth pole I had it."

He didn't ride the seventh, before finishing last on Peace Wine in the eighth.

Castellano won five races at Saratoga on Sept. 7, 2004, and on Sept. 3, 2005.

Finger Onthe Pulse wins Galway Plate



Aintree Grand National heroes jockey Tony McCoy and owner J.P.McManus combined to win a thrilling renewal of the www.thetote.com Galway Plate with Finger Onthe Pulse at Galway today, marking a return to form for Cheltenham Gold Cup winning trainer Tom Taaffe.

McCoy indeed was a late substitution, for Mark Walsh, on Finger Onthe Pulse, with McManus’ other intended runner Dancing Tornado being withdrawn lame this morning and the 15 times Champion British Jumps Jockey excelled on the half length winner.

Finger Onthe Pulse raced prominently throughout, led from six out, and although he was headed by eventual runner-up Themoonandsixpence before the straight, regained the lead a furlong out, before battling to a famous win.

Afterwards Taaffe, relieved and elated in similar measure, stated “that’s a great result –I had previously won the 1990 Galway Hurdle (Athy Spirit) but this is my first time winning the Plate.”

He added “Finger Onthe Pulse was originally owned by financier Conor Clarkson and won the Jewson Chase at Cheltenham for us.”

“However the horse lost his way and when circumstances changed and Conor needed to sell him (Finger Onthe Pulse was entered but subsequently withdrawn from Doncaster’s Horses In Training Sale in May 2009), I was so so fortunate that J.P. McManus was big enough and bold enough to buy him and leave him in my yard.”

“I also must praise the brilliant winning ride from Tony but must sympathise with Mark Walsh for missing the winning ride. However, Mark understands that Tony McCoy is retained by J.P. McManus.”

Taaffe, whose winnerless spell stretched back to last February, added “it isn’t right to complain when things are not going your way especially in the current economic climate but I just had to wait for things to go my way again and thankfully things changed today. I’d like to thank all my staff at home for doing such a great job with the horse.”

McCoy was subsequently severely cautioned for excessive use of the whip in the closing stages.

Favourite in the race, Majestic Concorde (whose rider Davy Russell himself received a one day suspension for excessive use of the whip), was a good third although stablemate Bobs Pride can be counted an unlucky loser, having fallen at the final fence when still travelling well.

Unfortunately, the race saw one fatality as Dont Be Bitin was subsequently put down having fractured his shoulder.

Canford Cliffs cruises to Sussex Stakes victory over Rip Van Winkle





Football teams are sometimes said to have handed out a 1-0 thrashing. Canford Cliffs did something similar to Rip Van Winkle here today as he took the Sussex Stakes by as comprehensive a neck as a Group One contest is ever likely to see. Rip Van Winkle, last year's winner, opened up a three-length lead going into the final furlong, but he was overwhelmed by the finishing kick of Canford Cliffs, whose combination of cruising speed and acceleration appears all but impregnable.

Rip Van Winkle is a fighter, as Sea The Stars discovered in the Eclipse Stakes last summer, but this was no contest. The race appeared to be slipping away from Canford Cliffs inside the final quarter mile, as the Ryan Moore-ridden Rip Van Winkle got first run on the 4-6 favourite, so much so that the winner drifted to 7-1 in-running on Betfair, but Richard Hughes, his jockey, knew better than anyone what to expect when he unleashed Canford Cliffs.

The gap closed so rapidly that he was able to start easing down a stride before the line, and while this was not an 11-length romp in the style of Harbinger's King George, it was, in its way, just as impressive.

Richard Hannon, Canford Cliffs' trainer, did not hesitate to nominate the colt as the best he has handled. "I love Paco Boy and my Guineas winners, but this horse just has it all," he said. "He's a gorgeous horse and always has been, and has a lovely turn of foot.

"We took him to Kempton about 10 days ago and he worked brilliantly. Richard got off him and said he'd improved about 7lb.

"I'd love to keep him in training next year, and if I can then I don't want to give him too much more racing this year. A mile is fine for him and I suppose the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes [at Ascot in September] is an obvious possibility, as well as the Jacques le Marois [at Deauville next month]."

Hughes confirmed that in his mind victory had never been in doubt. "He gave Rip Van Winkle a start and still beat him on the bit," Hughes said. "If you rode him work, you'd ride him that way [too]. He's unbelievable, simple as that. He's a superstar and you haven't seen the best of him yet.

"I don't mind what we run in or who we take on, and I hope we can keep him next year. He's getting bigger all the time, he's physically huge when you're on him now, and he's definitely still improving."

The eight-furlong match-up that would grab everyone's attention would be a meeting between Canford Cliffs and Goldikova, the winner of the last two runnings of the Breeders' Cup Mile. If Canford Cliffs does not contest the Marois, however, their paths might not cross this year, unless Canford Cliffs' owners – including Paul Roy, the BHA chairman – can persuade Hannon to set aside his aversion to racing in America in the hope of adding significantly to his value as a stallion.

Hughes and Hannon were completing a double on the day following the success of King Torus in the Group Two Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes. The victory was Hannon's 50th career winner at Glorious Goodwood, and his 65th juvenile winner this season.

Hughes was adamant before Royal Ascot that Strong Suit, the Coventry Stakes winner, was the best two-year-old in Hannon's yard, and though his opinion has not changed, he was deeply impressed by King Torus's finishing speed as he came six lengths clear of the field. Crown Prosecutor, the 6-4 favourite, was hampered early on and then faded swiftly in the final furlong, but King Torus was in a different league and deserves to step up to Group One company next time out.

The Racing Post Trophy, over a mile, and the Dewhurst at seven furlongs are possible targets. "Strong Suit is a brilliant horse," Hughes said, "but I haven't ridden a horse in this race that has finished as fast. You'd never know he was in the yard, he'd never win a bit of work but when you grab him [in a race] he goes into overdrive."

King Torus is generally a 20-1 chance for next year's 2,000 Guineas, while Strong Suit remains favourite with all bookmakers at a top price of 6-1.
