Horse racing publication: Who received’t we see subsequent 12 months?

Horse racing newsletter: Who won’t we see next year?

Hiya, my identify is John Cherwa and welcome to our horse racing publication as we get attempt to recover from our Breeders’ Cup hangover and surprise when everybody can see racing dwell once more.

Horse racing is every week faraway from its massive week, pleasure ought to be excessive and everybody ought to be trying ahead to subsequent 12 months and seeing these stars in motion. Proper?

Let’s see how this works on the massive race, the $6 million Traditional. (So as of end.)

1. Genuine. This man is simply 3. Certainly, we’ll get to see him as a 4-year-old, for the nice of the game. Nope. He’s going to face stud at Spendthrift for $75,000 a shot.

2. Unbelievable. Acquired to see him as a 4-year-old. How about at 5, please? Nope. He’s going to face at WinStar for $40,000 a pop.

3. International Marketing campaign. One other 4-year-old. Is there an opportunity at seeing him within the high divisions after solely 10 lifetime races. Nope. He’s going to face stud at WinStar for $12,500 a pop. (There have been hints he would possibly go as soon as extra within the Pegasus, however that doesn’t appear probably now.)

4. Tacitus. He’s a 4-year-old that has run 15 lifetime races. Coach Invoice Mott appears to assume he’ll be again for one more 12 months. And he’s owned by a breeder, Juddmonte Farm.

5. Most Safety. Effectively, he’s definitely been within the information. He received 10 of 14 lifetime races. Will we see him as a 5-year-old? Nope. He’s going to face stud at Ashford for $20,000 a pop.

6. Tiz the Regulation. This Belmont winner, clearly 3-years-old, will run subsequent 12 months for Sackatoga Steady.

7. Title Prepared. He’s 5 headed to six. That’s not a foul time to retire, however he’s by no means received a stakes race, graded or in any other case. He’s sticking round.

8. By My Requirements. This 4-year-old is probably going not completed. In reality, he’s a doable for the Clark at Churchill Downs later this month.

9. Tom d’Etat. He’s 7 headed to eight. The Benson household stored him round longer than most. He’s getting a well-deserved day job at WinStar for $17,500 a pop.

10. Larger Energy. He’s 5 headed to six. He deserves to take it straightforward and you may all the time rely on the Hronis brothers to do what’s greatest by the horse and for the business. He’ll be standing stud at Darby Dan for $10,000 a pop.

OK, so what did we study? Greater than half the Traditional subject received’t be again, together with the highest identify within the recreation, Genuine. The best way it appears, is the enterprise mannequin revolves round getting a horse to the breeding shed as a result of that’s the place the cash is. No shock there. Ought to the game be known as horse racing or horse breeding? Clearly, one is extra vital than the opposite on the high ranges.

Forgive me for shaking my head once I hear about teams reminiscent of, which offered microshares in Genuine, discuss in regards to the pleasure and wonderfulness of horse possession and attending to be a part of the general expertise. It began to promote shares in Genuine in June after which individuals obtained to look at their horse for, let’s see, one, two, three, sure, 4 races. However fairly darn massive races.

In full equity, the location solely had a 12.5% share in Genuine and sure had nearly no say on what would occur to the colt. Within the post-race interviews, Michael Behrens, who heads the syndicate group, mentioned: “We’d wish to maintain it going, don’t get me mistaken.”

Effectively, I’m guessing a lot of the 5,314 shareholders would in all probability wish to maintain it going, too, relatively than wait by their mailbox (or on-line checking account) to get their .001% share every time the horse breeds. Is retiring a horse after 4 races actually within the spirit of what’s being offered, even when it could be extra financially profitable?

And the “I’ve obtained a bridge to promote you second” belongs to Ned Toffey, basic supervisor at Spendthrift. “We simply felt there wasn’t much more to perform for a Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Traditional winner,” he mentioned. How a couple of second Traditional? Or an opportunity to be thought of one of many biggest horses of all time? Or is it that the risk-reward was simply too excessive? Good factor the Lakers and Dodgers don’t have that very same perspective.

Let’s face it, if racing is to outlive, it wants assist. It wants extra followers. Racing wants stars. Is that this the easiest way to perform it?

Wow, I feel I’ve blown my question-mark funds for the month.

Who goofed, I’ve obtained to know?

It was me and a fairly large goof. On Monday, when doing the recap of the Betty Grable Stakes at Del Mar, I used to be trying on the mistaken chart. I obtained the winner proper however the different horses had been mistaken. So, the official order was 1. Mo See Cal; 2. Warren’s Showtime; 3. Simply Grazed Me.
