Alex G. Campbell's homebred Mean Mary wins second stakes, while trainer Graham Motion says lack of racing hasn't affected him so far

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla.--Alex G. Campbell's homebred Mean Mary, trained by Graham Motion, won her second straight stakes on March 28, winning the G3, $100,000 Orchid Stakes at 1 1/4 miles on the turf on the final day of Gulfstream's premier meet.

She now has four wins, including two stakes, and one second from six starts, having won the G3, $200,00 La Prevoyante Stakes at 1 1/2 miles on the turf on Jan. 25..

"She's been remarkably consistent,," said Motion, who has said that she was very difficult to train earlier.

"She's mellowed a bit now, but she's still a handful," said Motion. "I hadn't planned to run her in the Orchid. I had planned to save her for the bigger races in the summer."

Racing has been hammered by breakdowns, lambasted by animal activists like Peta, cancelled in many areas due to coronavirus and, in Pennsylvania, by Gov. Wolf's attempt to raid the breeders' awards, and everyone in worried about what effect a long cancellation of racing may mean to its future.

Jockey Castellano tested positive for coronovirus but Gulfstream can continue to race

FROM THE Thoroughbred Daily News

By Bill Finley

Hall of Fame jockey Javier Castellano has tested positive for the coronavirus, reports his agent, John Panagot. Castellano is the first North American-based jockey known to have come down with the illness.

JavierCastellanoSusieRaisherNYRAJavierCastellano (Photo by Susie Raisher NYRA)Castellano had been riding at Gulfstream, but Bill Badgett, the executive director of Florida racing operations for The Stronach Group, said that racing will continue at the South Florida racetrack. He said that Castellano has not ridden at Gulfstream since Mar. 15 and was tested on Sunday when he returned to Florida from New York.

“We put protocols in place where no jockey who had been out of town could ride here until they took a physical,” Badgett said. “The physical is where they discovered he had the virus, otherwise he still wouldn’t know that he was positive. The safety of the jockey and everyone else here is our main priority and it’s more important than racing.

The use of drugs and the number of fatalities in racing in the U.S. versus those in Europe

The arrests of 27 people, including Jason Servis and Jorge Navarro, on Monday, March 9 brought again to the forefront the discussion of the higher number of horse fatalities  in this country as compared to Europe.

Racing generic 2According to the Jockey Club, the fatality rate at racetracks in the U.S. is two and a half to five times greater than the fatality rate in Europe.

Much of the media blames this on the use of drugs in America, but in fact there are a myriad of reasons.

According to many well respected trainers, owners and officials, the difference in breaking, training and racing horses in England and Europe is the biggest difference in fatalities, not drugs.

In this country, almost from the time they are weaned, youngsters, instead of growing up in pastures, are worked in preparation for sales, often being walked on walkers, always to the left.

The they go to the track where they are worked constantly to the left, putting a bigger strain on the legs on that side.

New York-based trainers support eliminating race-day Lasix

OZONE PARK, N.Y.-- The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) will prohibit the use of Furosemide (Lasix) within 48 hours of racing for all 2-year-olds with the start of juvenile racing in April at Aqueduct Racetrack, ushering in a new era in medication reform.

Racig generic 3Last April, NYRA joined a coalition of leading racing organizations committed to phasing out the use of Lasix.

The initiative will begin this year, with NYRA prohibiting Lasix in all 2-year-old races at all three NYRA tracks across Aqueduct, Belmont Park and Saratoga Race Course.

Beginning in 2021, the same prohibition will extend to all horses participating in stakes races at NYRA tracks.

Coalition racetracks that have signed on to this initiative include all tracks owned or operated by Churchill Downs Incorporated and The Stronach Group as well as Del Mar, Keeneland, Lone Star Park and Remington Park, Los Alamitos Racecourse (Thoroughbred), Oaklawn Park and Tampa Bay Downs.

The coalition tracks represent 86% of the stakes races assigned graded or listed status in the United States in 2018.

jonathonsheppardWillowdaleJonathon SheppardBrevard Place, ridden by Gerard Galligan, won by 3 lengths going away over a field of 11 maidens, finishing in 4:02 3/5.

"He's a nice boy," said Sheppard. "We bred him. He's a useful horse. He's out of a nice mare that I've gotten some winners out of. He's got a little class."

Brevard Place is a 6-year-old by Quality Road out of Lovely Stay, by Flower Alley who won two allowance races on the flat before Sheppard decided to run him over fences.

"Brevard Place is a little green," said assistant trainer Keri Brion who saddled the horse in Sheppard's absence. "This was his first time over fences. He was basically in the race just to school. I told Gerard just to jump the last fence and see where he was. He won easily."

Penitence, also ridden by Galligan, won the second division of the maiden race by 1 1/2 lengths, finishing in 3:52 1/5, the fastest time over the 2 mile course and a full 10 seconds faster than her stablemate.

"I'm taking a bit of a shine to her sire Redeemed," said Sheppard, who has bred a few of his mares to the stallion standing at Northview with good results. "She was a useful filly on the flat."

BOSTON, Va.--Kathy Neilson saddled two winners at Rappahannock Hunt Point-to-Point on March 7, including Highway Prince in a very tightly contested Maiden Timber.

Kathy Neilson at ManorKathy Neilson (file photo)Armata Stables' Highway Prince (Ire), ridden by Eddie Keating, was up close throughout the race and just won by a head over G1 hurdle winner Swansea Mile, owned by Rosbrian Farm, trained by Ricky Hendriks and ridden by Archie MacAuley, who was making his first start over timber.

"Highway Prince was a point-to-point winner in Ireland that we got from John Redmond," said Neilson. "He had won a point-to-point on fast ground in Ireland, so we suspected he'd make a good transition to racing here. After the winter, he came around. He's not a very big horse, but he's very athletic."

"I was surprised he won," said Neilson. "I though Ricky's horse was a very nice horse. I was happy for Eddie. That was his first race back after missing all of last fall."

Highway Prince won the 2 1/2 mile race in 5:20 3/5, the fastest time of the day. with Larry Levy's Easy Exit third and First Friday, trained by Doug Fout flying at the end to finish fourth and just miss the win.

Northeast PA breeders and trainers respond to Gov. Wolf’s plan to fund scholarships by raiding Trust Fund for Breeder Funds

BERKS AND MONROE COUNTIES, Pa--Following Governor Tom Wolf’s visits today to Kutztown and East Stroudsburg Universities, local Pennsylvania residents from Luzerne, Northampton, Wyoming, and Berks Counties spoke out in opposition to his plan to raid $204 million from a trust fund used for horse breeder incentives and racing purses to pay for his new college scholarship plan.

Racing generic 2The money in the fund, which is paid for out of casino slot machine revenues and are not taxpayer dollars, serves as the lifeblood of the state’s horse breeding and racing industry by funding purses and breeder incentives.

The Governor’s proposal would force these individuals to close their farms and small businesses and possibly require them to move to another state.

They represent just a sampling of the more than 20,000 Pennsylvania residents who are employed as a result of the state’s horse breeding and racing industry, which provides a $1.6 billion economic impact and also preserves more than 100,000 acres of open space.

Under the Governor’s proposal, there would be no money left in the Race Horse Development Trust Fund for purses or breeder incentives.

While Pa. fights Governor's attempt to steal horsemen's fund, Md. organizes $389 million remake of Laurel and Pimlico

HARRISBURG, Pa.--While the Pennsylvania Horse Breeders Assocation fights Pa. Governor Tom Wolf's illegal effort to raid the Race Horse Development Trust Fund for $200 million, Maryland is forging ahead, not only with its own excellent breeders awards but also with a $389 million aid package that would revamp both Laurel and Pimlico racetracks and keep the Preakness Stakes in Baltimore.

Racig generic 3Wolf's proposal isn't legal, as it violates a trust fund created by the legislature in 2017, therefore it is going nowhere, but just the fact that he is trying to take the funds has negative consequences.

It calls into question the long-term viability and fiscal security of the state’s breeding program just days before the start of breeding season on Feb. 15.

The PHBA has reached out to all breeders to contact their congressmen to forcefully rebuke Wolf's proposal within the next few days and weeks, otherwise owners may choose to breed in other states where there is more economic certainty about the health of the industry, resulting in significant financial losses for Pennsylvania breeders.

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla.--Michael Matz saddled Amy N. Moore's Beale Street to win a $51,000, 1 3/16 mile Allowance race on the turf at Gulfstream Park by 1/2 length on Feb. 23.

Beale Street winsBeale Street winning at Gulfstream"I was pleased with her," said Matz. "She's probably run about 10 times, and she's been pretty consistent."

Beale Street has run 10 times with two firsts, two seconds and four thirds and earnings of $98.970.

"This was the first time we stretched her out," said Matz. "Maybe we'll  stretch her out again. Johnny (Valazques, her jockey at Gulfstream) said she could run all day. Maybe we'll try a stakes at Keeneland. There's a 1 1/2 mile stakes there at the end of the meet. We'll take a look at the entries and see how she'll fit there.

"She's a nicely bred filly," said Matz. "If we can put some black type on her, she would be worth quite a bit of money."

Beale Street is a 4-year-old filly by Quality Road out of Striking Tomisue, by Smart Strike.

Mean Mary wins the La Prevoyante Stakes at Gulfstream

HALLANDALE BEACH--Graham Motion saddled Alex G. Campbell, Jr.'s homebred Mean Mary to win the $200,000, 1 1/4 mile La Prevoyante Stakes on the turf at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 25.

Mean MaryMean Mary (Photo by Adam  Coglianese)Leading every step of the way, Mean Mary, ridden by Luis Saez, set slow fractions of 25.48, 51.60, 1:17.34 and 1:42.59 and had plenty left at the end to win by 5 lengths.

The announcer on TVG blamed the other nine jockeys for allowing Saez to get away with a crawling pace that let Mean Mary get away with an easy win.

"It looked like it was going to set up that way," said Motion. "There wasn't any other pace in the race."

"I'm not going to be in any hurry to run her back," said Motion. "She's had a bit of a campaign. I may put her away for awhile. I'd like to have her for a big summer and fall campaign in those bigger races. I think she could be competitive in that division."
