STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN -FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2019

first_imgSTATE-OF-THE-ART VIDEO BOARD DEBUTS OPENING DAY TALAMO SEVEN VICTORIES FROM 2,000 IN HIS CAREER TEAM BAFFERT KEEN ON McKINZIE FOR AWESOME AGAINSanta Anita Park, whose bucolic beauty has stood the test of time for more than eight decades, adds another seed to its verdant garden when it launches an Autumn Meet of 23 days a week from today, Sept. 27, featuring three Grade I stakes opening weekend and five “Win and You’re In” Breeders’ Cup Challenge Races, in advance of hosting the Breeders’ Cup on Nov. 1 and 2 for a record 10th time.One of the marquee horses scheduled to run Saturday Sept. 28 is McKinzie, who would enhance his resume for Horse of the Year laurels with a victory in the Grade I, $300,000 Awesome Again Stakes for three-year-olds and up at 1 1/8 miles.“He’s always been extremely talented and he’s been running well,” said his regular pilot, Hall of Fame member Mike Smith, before departing for Parx where he has stakes engagements on Saturday. “He’s just getting older and stronger. His last race was impressive. The horses he beat all came back and ran really well.“Next out, one of them won a Grade I, so it’s a good sign when you’re beating Grade I horses. So far, so good.” McKinzie worked five furlongs Monday in a bullet 59.80, fastest of 69 drills at the distance, the average time of which was 1:01.75.Smith fancies McKinzie’s multi-faceted talent, always a welcome commodity.“He’s come from last, he’s won on the lead,” Smith said. “He’s pretty much done it all. It just depends on how far you’re going and how fast you’re going early.”Owned by Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman and trained by Bob Baffert, McKinzie is a four-year-old Street Sense colt who verified his versatility by winning the Grade I Malibu Stakes at seven furlongs last Dec. 26 and capturing the Grade I Whitney Stakes at 1 1/8 miles on Aug. 3.The most recent Breeders’ Cup Classic rankings had McKinzie in the top spot with 287 votes, more than 100 points ahead of two-time Dubai World Cup winner Thunder Snow at 183.Also showcased at Santa Anita opening weekend will be the Grade I American Pharoah Stakes for two-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles; the Grade I Chandelier Stakes for two-year-old fillies at 1 1/16 miles, both on Friday; the Awesome Again; the Rodeo Drive Stakes for fillies and mares three and older at 1 ¼ miles on turf; and the Grade II John Henry Turf Championship for three-year-olds and up at 1 ¼ miles on turf, all on Saturday.The American Pharoah, the Chandelier and the Rodeo Drive are “Win and You’re In” events, giving the winner a fees-paid berth to their respective Breeders’ Cup races.Sunday’s feature is the Grade II, $200,000 Zenyatta Stakes for fillies and mares, three and up, at 1 1/16 miles on the main track. It also is a “Win and You’re In” event.First post time on opening day is 1 p.m. Admission gates open at 11 a.m.TWO GRADE I STAKES FEATURED ON OPENING DAY NEXT FRIDAYA first in Santa Anita’s storied history will take place opening day, Friday, Sept. 27, when The Great Race Place offers three graded stakes, two–the $300,000 American Pharoah and the $300,000 Chandelier–Grade I Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” events, and the other the Grade II, $200,000 Eddie D Stakes for three-year-olds and up at five furlongs on turf.“We’re excited to get the meet started with these two outstanding Grade I races on opening day,” said Santa Anita Vice President, Racing and Racing Secretary Steve Lym. “The Eddie D has been upgraded to a Grade II and we’ve also doubled the purse on it (to $200,000), so we’re expecting an outstanding field.”The American Pharoah is a prep for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile on Nov. 1, and the Chandelier is a prep for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies the same day.Although it is not a Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” qualifier, the Eddie D serves as a prep for the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint on Nov. 1.The 23-day meet which concludes on Nov. 3 will offer 43 graded stakes, 18 of which are Grade I events. Santa Anita’s complete 2019 Autumn meet stakes schedule is available at santaanita.com/stakes-schedule.BAFFERT JUVENILES EYE AMERICAN PHAROAH, CHANDELIER STAKESBob Baffert expects to start Eight Rings and Bast in the Grade I American Pharoah Stakes and the Grade I Chandelier Stakes, respectively, on opening day a week from today.“We’ll work them one more time, but so far that’s the plan,” Baffert said this morning.The American Pharoah is for two-year-olds, while the Chandelier is for two-year-old fillies, each a Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Challenge Race.After an impressive maiden win by 6 ¼ lengths, Eight Rings lost the rider soon after the start in the Del Mar Futurity, while Bast, a filly by Uncle Mo, won the Del Mar Debutante by nearly nine lengths after running second in her debut.NEWCOMER CEDILLO THREAT TO WIN SANTA ANITA CROWNTom Knust knows a good thing when he sees it.The veteran race tracker has served the game in several capacities, most recently as a jockey’s agent, currently representing Martin Garcia and Abel Cedillo.Knust had his eye on Cedillo when he was winning races in bunches at Golden Gate Fields earlier this year, with the intention of bringing him to Del Mar and then Santa Anita.The plan has come to fruition. A 30-year-old native of Guatemala, Cedillo finished third in the standings at Del Mar with 25 victories, behind Flavien Prat and Drayden Van Dyke, and looms a serious threat to capture the title at Santa Anita.“I knew he could ride, I knew he had the ability, but you never know until they show it here,” Knust said. “Sometimes it takes them longer to get going, but he had the support of a lot of trainers down here, and (trainer) Jonathan Wong deserves credit for putting him on good horses in the Bay Area and giving him the chance to succeed and be where he’s at right now.“Our relationship with Doug O’Neill has been great and helped tremendously. He’s been very supportive, as has Phil D’Amato, Peter Miller, Richard Baltas, Mark Glatt and others.“I think Abel is a very strong rider. He reminds me a lot of Joel Rosario, and trainers have told me the same thing, so that’s high praise. Abel will ride eight a day if he can and he’ll work 10 horses in the mornings, then fly somewhere and ride a stake the next day.“He’s very motivated and committed to Southern California. You need to have the horses and the opportunities to win a riding title, along with a little luck, but Abel has the talent and work ethic to be a leading rider.”Added O’Neill, fresh from winning the Del Mar title with 24 wins: “We watched him on TV for months up north putting up great ride after great ride. He showed right away at Del Mar that he fits in Southern California. He’s got a tremendous work ethic and to me he rides very much like Joel Rosario.“He’s so good at putting horses in position to win and he’s one of the strongest finishers I’ve seen in a long time. He’s a great addition to this colony.”OLD WAR HORSE MUCHOS BESOS RETIRED AT THE AGE OF 10Muchos Besos, one of the most popular and successful claiming horses ever to run at Santa Anita, has been retired at the ripe old age of 10.“He was sound, but a group of racing officials felt it was time for him to retire,” said Javier Jose Sierra, who trained the Kentucky-bred son of Macho Uno for Hugo Catalan. “But he was 100 percent sound.”Winner of 12 of 79 career starts, 10 of 46 at Santa Anita where he also had six seconds, 11 thirds and earnings of $242,636, Muchos Besos (“many kisses” in Spanish) ran third in his final race on June 29 at Los Alamitos.The gray gelding made his first start on Sept. 2, 2011. Overall, he earned $335,236.Sierra, who trained Muchos Besos for six years, winning six races, said he was purchased privately for $15,000 and turned out at the buyer’s home in Rancho Santa Fe. “The gentleman has three horses there, but they aren’t ridden or worked,” Sierra said. “He puts the horses on trails, so Muchos Besos should retire in comfort.”NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART VIDEO BOARD AT SANTA ANITA          Santa Anita has installed a new state-of-the-art LED Infield video board, which will offer viewers dramatically improved brightness and visual clarity beginning on opening day.Manufactured and installed by Daktronics, America’s leading manufacturer of outdoor LED (light-emitting diode) boards, this new 30′ x 54′ display contains 648,000 total 15 mm pixels, the optimum size for a board of this scope, ensuring an improved view of the races and all video content throughout the race day.Due to the breadth of this project, the previous board was removed in August and the new board was installed last month while the Santa Anita stable area was closed.Based in Brookings, South Dakota, Daktronics employs 2,500 people and parts are made in the USA. Daktronics is the preferred vendor for 21 of 31 NFL stadiums and 22 of 30 Major League Baseball parks throughout the United States.Santa Anita, which hosts the Breeders’ Cup World Championships for a record 10th time on Nov. 1 and 2, will also be offering fans other major new amenities, such as its Stretch Run Suites and Trackside Terrace Dining and Seating, at a cost of more than $5 million.(Santa Anita was the first racetrack in America to install an Infield video board in 2001).For additional information on Santa Anita’s 2019 Autumn Meet and two-day Breeders’ Cup World Championships, please visit santaanita.com or call (626) 574-RACE.FINISH LINES: Joe Talamo is zeroing in on his 2,000th career win, only seven from that milestone according to his agent, Scotty McClellen, a fastidious figure filbert who has represented the Louisiana native since he came to California at 18. He’s now 29, so it’s a span of some 10 years. “I haven’t really thought about it too much,” Talamo said Friday morning of the impending mark. “I hadn’t paid attention but Scotty told me last week. It’s pretty cool.” . . . Come-backing three-year-old stalwart Omaha Beach worked seven furlongs this morning in 1:27.20 for Richard Mandella on Santa Anita’s fast main track . . . Fasig-Tipton presents its California Fall Yearling sale at Fairplex Park in Pomona this Thursday, Sept. 26 at 12 noon. “We have 285 up for auction,” pointed out former trainer Mike Machowsky, now Fasig-Tipton’s California representative and account executive.

Diego López faces the challenge that resists him

first_imgDiego López will live today his sixth duel against Barcelona with the blue and white shirt and in the previous five he has received 14 goals. The last in Cornellà-El Prat, last year, does not keep excessive good memories because Espanyol fell 0-4, Leo Messi scored two goals and is scored a goal in his own door. Diego López will try to leave history behind a Barcelona that is choking him today. In addition to having scored 38 goals, it is the second set against which he has won the most losses (11). Only Madrid has won more times (12). Diego López, who ends the contract at the end of this season and is now free to negotiate with any other team, is focused solely on helping Espanyol seal the salvation. And everything happens to show its best version. Leaving his goal to zero against Barcelona is something that would give him wings at the motivational level and, in addition, catapult his team. Of course, it is a subject that has pending before the Catalans. He has faced in Primera in 17 games and the balance is two wins (with Villarreal and Real Madrid), four draws and 11 losses. And in them he only left his goal zero once. It was with Villarreal, the 2011-12 season (0-0). With the yellow set he wore, but he also had to suffer the greatest culé punishment because that same course suffered a 5-0, on day 2, at Camp Nou. Diego López has a challenge today against Barcelona: leaving his goal to zero. The Espanyol goalkeeper suffers when he faces the Catalans, and that is the team that has scored the most goals in Primera (38). Diego wants to claim, dry Barça, and yesterday, through his Twitter account, he was in charge of putting the spotlight on today’s clash: “Maximum difficulty, total motivation. It’s time to be together. Come on, Espanyol“he said.last_img read more

Murillo: “Bale forgets the ball, he can injure Rafinha”

first_imgHow did you see the fans at the Bernabéu? Take this opportunity to congratulate the fans, we know how important they are. Everyone knows that these matches are life or death. I wish both of you luck, although I have a nice memory of my time in Barcelona. May the best win.How do you see James?He’s my friend, I’ve known him since childhood. But I don’t get into personal matters, I always wish him the best.And the entrance of Bale to Rafinha? Bale completely forgets the ball, grabs it from behind, with the option of clearly injuring him. Luckily, Rafa is fine.Should he have seen the red one?It is a moot move, he totally forgets the ball, he can injure it. The referee decides. That’s how it looked in the field.Do you think that because he was the Bernabéu he was not expelled?In that I can not judge, the referee decides. We play. Those decisions are not ours.How about Oscar?He is a technician who has things clear, tries to do his best, speaking, supporting. Tactically try to get the team to grasp the idea.last_img read more
