Saturday Wrap: Higher Power Raises Game in Pacific Classic - Posted on: August 18, 2019

By Margaret Ransom Make that a double for John Sadler and Hronis Racing, the powerful trainer/owner duo that now claims consecutive victories in the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic (G1). A year ago, it was Accelerate who not only won Del Mar’s premier race, but went on to capture the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) and earn the Eclipse Award as the nation’s top older horse of 2018. On Saturday, Team Sadler/Hronis was back in the winner’s circle with Higher Power, who took charge in the stretch and pulled away for a 5 ¼-length victory and earned an all-expenses paid spot

The Great Day looking for a great race in the Del Mar Handicap - Posted on: August 17, 2019

By Margaret Ransom A multiple Group 1 winner in Argentina, The Great Day has come up short in his first two starts in the United States. On Saturday, perhaps the third time is a charm when the 5-year-old owned by Lael Stables takes on eight rivals in the $250,000 Del Mar Handicap (G2) on the turf. Post time for the race, which precedes the $1 million Pacific Classic, is 5 p.m. PT. Bred in Argentina, The Great Day finished fifth in the Prince George’s County Stakes at Laurel in his U.S. debut, and then ran second in the Arlington Handicap

Best Bet: Handicapping the Empire 6 Mandatory Payout on Sunday at Saratoga - Posted on: August 16, 2019

By Sean Morris While most eyes will be fixed on Del Mar for the Pacific Classic and its supporting stakes, the “best bet” this weekend is undoubtedly the first mandatory payout of Saratoga’s Empire 6 on Sunday. With an affordable base and very low effective takeout on force-out days, these are the type of wagers I live for, especially when paired with the quality racing Saratoga provides. I would, however, be remiss to not at least mention the Pacific Classic, which drew a fun and competitive field. My top pick is Pavel, who I’m not sure has moved up with the

Long shot War Story ready for another chance at the Pacific Classic - Posted on: August 16, 2019

By Lynne Snierson Once again, War Story will be deployed to take on the challenge of trying to win the first Grade 1 race of a career that has seen the durable 7-year-old gelding earn close to $3 million from 35 starts at 15 different tracks for nine different trainers. This time, he’s back for the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic (G1) on Saturday, his second try at the premier race of the Del Mar summer season. In 2016, War Story finished seventh behind two-time Horse of the Year California Chrome. The Pacific Classic will be the chestnut’s 11th start

Maximum Security, Game Winner both out of the Travers - Posted on: August 15, 2019

By Richard Rosenblatt The early news concerning the 150th edition of the Runhappy Travers (G1) on Aug. 24 came from California and two-time Triple Crown winning trainer Bob Baffert on Thursday: Game Winner, one of the likely favorites, won’t run because he’s developed a cold. The later news came from New Jersey and trainer Jason Servis: Maximum Security, who finished first in the Kentucky Derby (G1) but was DQ’d for interference and most recently won the Haskell Invitational (G1), won’t run because he’s not eating well or putting on weight. What’s a Midsummer Derby to do? Not to worry. Even

Seeking the Soul searching for victory as mild favorite in $1 million Pacific Classic - Posted on: August 15, 2019

By Margaret Ransom A wide-open field of 10 is set to line up for the 29th running of the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic (G1) at Del Mar on Saturday, with Seeking the Soul the slight morning-line favorite in a Breeders’ Cup Challenge “Win and You’re In” race. One of the top races in the country, the winner earns an automatic berth in the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 2. The 1 ¼-mile race first run in 1991 has produced a pair of Pacific Classic-BC Classic double winners: Pleasantly Perfect in 2003 and Accelerate last

It’s Alabama Time at Saratoga Race Course - Posted on: August 15, 2019

By Mike Farrell It has already been a remarkable meet for the fillies at Saratoga Race Course. Thus far, we have witnessed Guarana keep her undefeated streak alive in the Coaching Club American Oaks (G1), Concrete Rose score a pacesetting win in the inaugural Saratoga Oaks, Covfefe outgame Serengeti Empress in the Test (G1) and Got Stormy beat the boys in the Fourstardave (G1). Now comes the biggest distaff event of the season, the $600,000 Alabama (G1) on Saturday. One of the venerable events at the Spa, the 1 ¼-mile Alabama will be run for the 139th time. The latest

Handle Up At 2 Western New York Harness Tracks - Posted on: August 13, 2019

On Monday July 1, Yonkers Raceway hosted a 12-race card.  That is not news, but what did catch my eye was race number eight which was run for a purse of $18,500. It wasn’t because of the conditions; this was for non-winners of $10,000 in their last five races.  In addition, any horse that earned $70k or more in 2019 were not eligible.  That wasn’t what I noticed. It was the distance. The race was contested at 1 1/16 miles on the half-mile oval at Old Hilltop, meaning the horses would cross the finish line three times.  Some of you
