Red Baron’s Barn or Rancho Temescal’s Zoffarelli, in from England just a week earlier and unable to even get a work in over the Del Mar track, didn’t let that stop him as he ran well and survived a bumping match through the stretch to be declared the winner of the $150,500 La Jolla Handicap Sunday at the seaside track north of San Diego, Calif.

Jackie’s Warrior Dominant In Amsterdam, Brings Asmussen Closer To Record

After a thunderous deluge delayed the Grade 2 Amsterdam for thirty minutes, soaking the sealed Saratoga surface, Jackie’s Warrior showed that the delay and the track were no trouble at all for the son of Maclean’s Music. At Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., the 3-year-old’s multi-length triumph brought Steve Asmussen another victory closer to passing Dale Baird and becoming racing’s winningest trainer. A troubled break in the Grade 1 Woody Stephens last time out compromised Jackie’s Warrior’s chances at the victory on the Belmont Stakes undercard, with Drain the Clock taking that G1 stakes race. The two hooked […]

With NYRA Ban Overturned, Baffert Plans To Enter Gamine At Saratoga

After a judge overturned the New York Racing Association’s ban of Bob Baffert on July 14, the trainer told the Daily Racing Form he plans to enter reigning champion sprint mare Gamine in the Grade 1 Ballerina Stakes at Saratoga on Aug. 28. NYRA notified Baffert ahead of the Belmont Stakes that it was suspending his ability to enter horses in races or have stall space at its racetracks due to his recent history of medication violations, the conflicting statements he provided to media around the Medina Spirit scandal, and Churchill Downs’ suspension of the trainer.

Pedroza Splitting Time Between Ellis Park, Indiana Grand

Marcelino Pedroza’s hope still is to ride seven days a week this summer: Mondays-Thursdays at Indiana Grand in Shelbyvlle, Ind., where he has a 12-victory lead in the jockey standings with 42 victories and a meet-leading $1.12 million in purse earnings, and then Fridays-Sundays at Ellis Park in Henderson, Ky. While he’s found the Ellis opportunities limited so far, the jockey is making the most of them. With only five mounts spread over four days, Pedroza has two wins and a second. His victories contain Saturday’s fourth race for locally-based trainer Billy Stinson Jr. in Pedroza’s only mount of the […]
