Saratoga (New York):
  • The Pick Six carryover into Monday will begin at $577,107.
  • The star of the day was Ricardo Santana, Jr. who won three consecutive races and the $2 Pick 3 with him on top in each race returned $4,399. One win was $45.80 and another for $24.00.
  • Johnny Velazquez, mentioned yesterday for his rough start to the meet, won twice and both times for Todd Pletcher.
  • Meanwhile, the Ortiz brothers (Irad in the finale) combined for one win after their 7-victory day yesterday.
  • Feature race: Abel Tasman (Mike Smith/Bob Baffert) shipped east and won a nail-biter and an inquiry/objection in the $300,000 Grade I Coaching Club American Oaks. The 3-year-old filly is now 6-for-9 lifetime and is 3-for-4 under Smith's direction with a 3-race win streak. Elate (Jose Ortiz/Bill Mott) hugged the rail, went eye-to-eye with the winner and eventually Ortiz claimed foul against Smith but that was denied. Salty, under Joel Rosario, had a terrible start and recovered for third. It was Smith's only ride of the day.

Monmouth (New Jersey):
  • Jorge Navarro became the first trainer to saddle five winners in one card at the track. He won the first three races, the fifth and then had a win and a loss in the finale.

Canterbury (Minnesota):
  • McLean Robertson had one starter and at 6-to-1 was a gift with his numbers, especially at that track. He is my number one trainer there for a reason. Cecily Evans, the rider, was 1-for-50 this year.

Del Mar (California):
  • Trainer Peter Eurton completed a perfect 3-for-3 day including wins in the first two races.
  • Madam Dancealot (Jamie Theriot/Richard Baltas), the second-longest shot in field at 21-1, was the upset winner of the Grade II $250,000 San Clemente Handicap. A last-to-first rally got it done. Sircat Sally (Drayden Van Dyke/Jerry Hollendorfer) was vanned off with a fractured sesamoid (per Jay Privman of the DRF) and another report said retirement from racing was confirmed. She lost for the first time in eight races.

Woodbine (Toronto):
  • In the $125,000 feature race, a 3rd-time starter stood out especially at 6-to-1. The 2-year-old filly named Glamanation (David Moran/Michael Doyle) broke her maiden with an $8.90 victory. When paired with Luis Contreras's favorite, the exacta came back $29.30. What made the filly a standout was her two prior races were won by Dream It Is who, under the direction of Contreras, was mentioned in this thread for her impressive win at Saratoga a couple of days ago. But maybe as important, she is a January foal and had the advantage of being slightly more mature than all of her opponents.

He just bounced, imo. Happens almost all the time in this scenario. Not always, but it was definitely a great day to try and beat him with a price, unlikely you'd get that chance again.

^If anyone can get a horse to rebound it is Baffert. I have no doubt the horse will perform up to standards next time out. Horses are people, too, or whatever Radar O'Reilly said. They can have off days.

Saratoga (New York):
  • Since Hall-of-Famer Wayne Lukas was treated so regally Saturday after his win, what was the reaction following today's opener? My goodness. That has to be near a track record for any opener at the Spa. A 99-to-1 shot -- officially 115-to-1 -- smashes the tote board. Perplexed made the board just once (a third place finish) in nine prior starts all of which were in either Arkansas or Kentucky except his maiden race which was also at the Spa. Other than "all" bets, good luck to anyone who was alive in exotics after this race. And look at Mike Luzzi finish for third after a terrible start to the race.
  • The early $2 double was an astonishing $1,342.
  • The $2 Pick 5 following race 5 paid more than $36,000.
  • Nine jockeys and ten trainers won on the 10-race card. The only repeat winner was Joel Rosario, who as it is often said, will win a second time if he wins a first time during a race day. Miss Ella won the $200,000 Caress, a race she won last year, under Rosario.
  • Tyler Gaffalione brought his skills to New York today and won the finale with a $24.00 winner.
  • Reigning Jockey of the Year Javier Castellano is currently 1-for-31 at the meet. That is the same win total as Mike Smith who has 30 less rides.
  • Manny Franco is a good rider but he is 0-for-26 to start the meet. Saratoga can be difficult and humbling, Corey Lanerie and Julien Leparoux among others have found that out in recent years. It isn't always about the riders, sometimes it is about the mounts.

Stronach has desired a regional situation to include Maryland. Philly was once a rumor. It is too bad he couldn't get Suffolk Downs under his direction and control, that would have added to his empire which is now on both coasts.

There is still chatter that Laurel could be awarded a future Breeders' Cup, maybe in 2020. That would be a massive coup. Size is an issue but Keeneland overcame obstacles and Stronach has the resources to complete the possibility.

Quote:
Initial plans would call for a limited live season of 30 days in 2018 that would coordinate with the meets at the Stronach-owned Maryland tracks, Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course. It is unclear at this stage whether a Massachusetts meet would fit into the spring, summer, or autumn calendar.

Suffolk Downs in Boston, which is owned by Sterling Suffolk Racecourse LLC and has hosted live racing since 1935, has raced six days in a calendar year since 2015, and plans call for another six-day meet in 2018 even though the property was sold recently to a real estate developer with no interest in continuing live racing or simulcasting.

The purchase and sales agreement with the new owner allows Sterling Suffolk to lease the racing and simulcasting operation for $20,000 per month this year and next, with an option to continue dependent upon the demolition and construction schedule.

Triple Crown winner American Pharoah and two-time Horse of the Year California Chrome have arrived in the Southern Hemisphere for the upcoming breeding seasons in Australia and Chile, respectively.

American Pharoah, who has stood the past two Northern Hemisphere seasons at Coolmore’s Ashford Stud in Kentucky, will debut at Coolmore Australia for the breeding season beginning Sept. 1 and will return to Kentucky in December.
Quote:
California Chrome has shuttled to Oussama Aboughazale’s Haras Sumaya in Chile for the Southern Hemisphere season. Taylor Made Farm, which co-owns the stallion and debuted him at stud in Kentucky this year, said Sunday on its social-media outlets that he “traveled well and is settling in nicely.”
