‘Just A Ding-Dong Battle’; Delahoussaye, McCarron Relive Dramatic Distaff Finish Of 1993

‘Just A Ding-Dong Battle’; Delahoussaye, McCarron Relive Dramatic Distaff Finish Of 1993

With the Breeders’ Cup World Championships coming to Santa Anita for a record 10th time on Nov. 1 and 2, memories of great performances from years gone by are bound to be rekindled. Decided by a scant nose, the 1993 Distaff, which involved a pair of Hall of Fame distaffers and four Hall of Fame horsemen, occupies prime real estate on anyone’s stroll down Memory Lane.

It was Nov. 6, 1993, and two of the greatest jockeys of all-time, Eddie Delahoussaye, aboard the Neil Drysdale-trained Hollywood Wildcat, and Chris McCarron, aboard the Ron McAnally-conditioned Paseana, did battle the length of the stretch, with Hollywood Wildcat prevailing by a nose in one of the most dramatic finishes in Breeders’ Cup history. What made the result even more compelling was the fact Delahoussaye lost his stick inside the sixteenth pole.

“They were both very accomplished fillies going into the race,” said Delahoussaye (who had won the Breeders’ Cup Sprint earlier in the day with Cardmania), by phone from his home in Lafayette, La. “We both broke good and my filly was real comfortable. I made the lead entering the stretch and I had horse left, but I could hear McCarron just outside of me and I knew it was her (Paseana) and she was the one I was afraid of. At the eighth pole, we both really took off. I wasn’t sure if I was gonna hold on.  We were head and head going down the last sixteenth of a mile and naturally, I un-cocked my stick probably about (70 yards) before the finish line and I blew it…As I said back then, I even lost my composure.

“I knew I had horse and I said, ‘Uh oh, are we gonna get there?’ Actually, I probably didn’t even need the whip…It was a helluva horse race from the top of the stretch…Normally, I’m cool as a cucumber, but that day, it just freaked me out, letting go of that whip. As you know, all the races I rode the last 20 years of my career, I very seldom used the whip…I guess it’s like a crutch, you just have it and even though you don’t use it, it gives you confidence having it.  It was very close, but I thought I had won.”

Favored at 6-5 in a field of eight, Hollywood Wildcat, who was foaled on Feb. 4, 1990, was by Kris S., out of the Mr. Prospector mare Miss Wildcatter, and paid $4.60 to win.  Trained by Neil Drysdale, she carried 120 pounds and was owned and bred in Florida by Irving and Marjorie Cowan.

Paseana, an imposing 6-year-old mare bred in Argentina who had won the 1992 Distaff at Gulfstream Park, carried 123 pounds and was the second choice in the wagering at 5-2.

“She always ran her best races when she was in front turning for home, but she was a mare that didn’t have to be in front,” said McCarron from his home in Midway, Ky.  “She had good tactical speed and always stalked very comfortably. Eddie dropped his stick and I remember I caught hell back in the jocks’ room, because Eddie told everybody, ‘I knew it was Chris, so I just threw my stick away!’”

In the heat of battle, was McCarron aware of Delahoussaye’s miscue?

“Yeah, I saw it go,” he said. “I thought well, I got him now…But it was just a ding-dong battle and both of those mares gave everything they had…When we hit the wire, I was pretty confident I had finished second. It was close, but it wasn’t so close we couldn’t determine it. I just remember it was a very tough pill to swallow.”

And, yet another great moment in Breeders’ Cup history at Santa Anita.

Three Chimneys Releases 2020 Stud Fees, Led By Gun Runner At $70,000

Three Chimneys Releases 2020 Stud Fees, Led By Gun Runner At $70,000

Three Chimneys Farm is pleased to announce stud fees for the 2020 breeding season. Their roster is headlined by 2017 Horse of the Year, Gun Runner, whose fee will remain unchanged at $70,000. Gun Runner captured six Grade 1 wins including the Breeders’ Cup Classic and Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes before retiring to stud in 2018 with $15,988,500 in career earnings.

“I have been across the state to see most of the Gun Runner foals, and it’s an exceptional first crop,” said Three Chimneys stallion director Tom Hamm. “They’re good-sized, well-balanced, athletic and have a lot of class. We couldn’t be more excited about his prospects. Most breeders seem to be telling me it’s their best foal on the farm, or it’s the best foal a mare has thrown yet, that sort of positive feedback. The biggest problem I’ve had is that we couldn’t convince Ron Winchell or Mr. [Goncalo] Torrealba to sell any of their 25 weanlings between them – they have some real stars from some great mares – it’s exciting to see the quality out there.”

Three Chimneys also stands freshman stallions Palace Malice and Fast Anna who have each sired multiple stakes winners from their first crop. A stud fee for Palace Malice will be released following the Breeders’ Cup in November, where he has two runners.

“Three Chimneys freshman sires Palace Malice and Fast Anna are doing quite well,” Hamm said. “Palace Malice currently has two horses pointing to the Breeders’ Cup, stakes winner and Grade 2 placed Crystalle, and undefeated Structor who won the Grade 3 Pilgrim Stakes at Belmont. Fast Anna has also gotten off to a nice start with three individual stakes winners. The future looks bright for these two freshman sires who have already begun proving their value.”

Stalwart Sky Mesa, whose stud fee will remain unchanged at $15,000, has sired eight stakes winners in 2019 including Grade 1 Spinaway Stakes winner and Breeders’ Cup bound Perfect Alibi. Will Take Charge, the leading second-crop sire by graded stakes performers, will stand for a fee of $15,000 as well.

Grade 1 winner Sharp Azteca, who ran the fastest Ragozin of -2 ¼ in 2017, will take up second year stud duties for a fee of $10,000.

Stallion                       Fee

Gun Runner $70,000
Palace Malice TBA
Sky Mesa $15,000
Will Take Charge $15,000
Fast Anna $10,000
Sharp Azteca $10,000
Strong Mandate $5,000
Funtastic $5,000

Runner-Up in Disputed ’18 Santa Anita Derby Rebuffed By CHRB

Runner-Up in Disputed ’18 Santa Anita Derby Rebuffed By CHRB

Mick Ruis, the owner/trainer of 2018 GI Santa Anita Derby runner-up Bolt d’Oro (Medaglia d’Oro), has been rebuffed by the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB) in his attempt to get a hearing that would revisit the race results and post-race drug testing adjudication of that Grade I test, which was won by subsequent Triple Crown winner Justify (Scat Daddy).

But a bombshell story in the New York Times last month revealed Justify had tested positive for scopolamine after he won the Santa Anita Derby, and that illegal drug result was kept hidden from the public.

The Times further reported that CHRB officials arranged to handle Justify’s positive “differently than usual.” Then, more than four months after the 2018 Santa Anita Derby, in an executive session closed to the public, CHRB members voted unanimously not to disqualify Justify or to sanction his trainer, Bob Baffert.

In light of the recent public disclosure of Justify’s positive, Ruis has engaged attorney Darrell Vienna to “get to the bottom” of the issue. On Wednesday, the Louisville Courier-Journal broke the story that Vienna’s written request to the CHRB for a hearing on the matter was rejected.

“Please be advised that the Board dismissed the matter as authorized under (California) Business and Professions Code 19577(d),” a CHRB attorney wrote in a reply that was published in part by the Courier-Journal. “Therefore, further hearing on the subject is not required or warranted.”

Vienna did not respond to a TDN query for comment in time for deadline for this story.

But Vienna told the Courier-Journal via email that “The request for a hearing is necessary to exhaust administrative remedies prior to litigation. However, at this point, we are hopeful that the CHRB will provide a full, open and transparent hearing. Should the CHRB fail to provide such a hearing, we do not rule out the pursuit of any and all legal remedies.”

Ruis told the Courier-Journal that “A rules a rule. It was a banned substance. It was an overage. That’s it: disqualification.”

The difference in purse money between second and first was $400,000. But the 2018 Santa Anita Derby win also qualified Justify to enter the GI Kentucky Derby based on eligibility points, and that’s something that no re-adjudication could ever reverse.

“I could care less about the $400,000,” Ruis told the Courier-Journal. “That’s not it. But I do care for every small trainer and little guy who is running and racing clean on the backside to have a chance. Let the best horse win, not the best whatever-else-they-use win.”
