Synchrony Takes Aim At Muniz; Good Samaritan, The Player Head New Orleans Handicap

Synchrony Takes Aim At Muniz; Good Samaritan, The Player Head New Orleans Handicap

Pin Oak Stable’s Synchrony made a successful return to the races in last month’s Grade III Fair Grounds Handicap and will look for another victory over the Stall-Wilson Turf Course in Saturday’s Gr. II $300,000 Muniz Memorial Handicap.

Trained by Mike Stidham, the son of Tapit’s victory in last month’s Fair Grounds Handicap was his first start since last May, where he finished second in the Gr. III Red Bank Stakes at Monmouth Park. Synchrony started off his career with trainer Donnie Von Hemel for whom he raced on the main track. He was a two-time winner on dirt and was third in the Gr. III Lexington Stakes in 2016 behind Collected. The following year, he moved to the care of Stidham, who switched him to the turf in his second start for the trainer. Since the surface change, Synchrony has never been worse than second in four starts. He is the lukewarm morning line favorite at 7-2 odds and will break from the rail under Joe Bravo.

If Synchrony wishes to add another graded stakes victory to his resume, he will have to successfully overcome  multiple shippers for the event, one of which is Gulfstream Park allowance winner Lucullan. Trained by Kiaran McLaughlin, the 4-year-old son of Hard Spun is in search of his first stakes victory. Two starts ago, he made his only attempt at graded stakes company when finishing second behind Yoshida (Jpn.) in the Gr. III Hill Prince Stakes. Like Synchrony, Lucullan also made started his career off on the main track. It was not until his third start that he would see the turf for the first time when he broke his maiden over the lawn at Belmont Park. He will be ridden by Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens at 8-1 morning line odds.

Also shipping from South Florida is Juddmonte Farms Inc.’s Forge (GB), who most recently was second beaten a half-length behind World Approval in the Gr. III Tampa Bay Stakes. The 5-year-old son of Dubawi (Ire.) is out of Heat Haze (GB), a four-time graded stakes winner. Forge started his career in his native Great Britain while racing for trainer Sir Michael Stoute and in 2017, transferred to the barn of Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott who has won previous editions of the Muniz Memorial with Amira’s Prince (Ire.) (2013) and Take The Stand (Arg.) (2015). In seven starts in the United States, Forge’s only win came over Churchill Downs’ Matt Winn Turf Course on Jun. 4. He breaks from post nine at 9-2 odds under Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez.

West Point Thoroughbreds LLC’s Ring Weekend (post 11, 5-1, Jose Ortiz) boasts the highest bankroll of any other starter in the Muniz Memorial field having $1,559,844 in career earnings. The 7-year-old son of Tapit also is the only Grade I winner in the field of ten. In 2015, he scored a victory at such caliber in Santa Anita’s Frank E. Kilroe Mile. Trained by Graham Motion, he also is the winner of five other graded stakes races. He enters the Muniz Memorial Stakes off of an allowance win over the Gulfstream Park turf, which was his first start since September, where he was third in the Gr. II Baltimore/Washington International Turf Cup.

Trainer Brad Cox will send out a pair of graded stakes winners for the Muniz Memorial with Arklow (post four, 10-1, Javier Castellano) and Mr. Misunderstood (post  eight, 5-1, Florent Geroux). Owned by Donegal Racing and Joseph Bulger, Arklow won the Gr. II American Turf Stakes at Churchill Downs as a 3-year-old which was his lone win against graded stakes company. Last time out, the 4-year-old son of Arch made his first start since August in an allowance race over the Stall-Wilson Turf Course last month where he closed from well off a slow pace to win by a nose. Stable mate Mr. Misunderstood has a solid resume on grass which consists of eight victories out of nine turf starts. Last time out, he suffered his first loss on turf when he fell to Synchrony in the Gr. III Fair Grounds Handicap. Owned by Flurry Racing Stables LLC, his victories on turf include wins in Churchill Downs’ Gr. III Commonwealth Turf Stakes and the Jefferson Cup as well as a victory in the Woodchopper Stakes two starts back. Before he became a multiple stakes winner, he gave jockey Florent Geroux his 1,000th  career win in December 2016 when running for a $30,000 tag.

Zulu Alpha (post two, 30-1, Brian Hernandez, Jr.), Galton (post three, 20-1, Joel Rosario), Danish Dynaformer (post five, 8-1, Rafael Hernandez), One Mean Man (post seven, 30-1, Marcelino Pedroza), and Revved Up (post ten, 6-1, Shaun Bridgmohan) complete the field.

One race prior, multiple graded stakes winners The Player and Good Samaritan will face off in the Grade II $400,000 New Orleans Handicap, which kicks off a $200,000 guaranteed all-stakes Pick 4.

Breaking from the rail, The Player will be going for his third graded stakes triumph. Last time out, the son of Street Hero won the Gr. III Mineshaft Handicap in wire-to-wire fashion by 4¼ lengths. In October of last year, he won the Gr. II Fayette Stakes at Keeneland by three lengths.  He is trained by William “Buff” Bradley who will be going for his first New Orleans ‘Cap victory since Brass Hat in 2006. Hall of Fame jockey Calvin Borel will pilot The Player who is the 9-5 morning line second choice. The Player is owned by Bradley in partnership with Carl Hurst.

The 8-5 morning line favorite is WinStar Farm LLC and China Horse Club’s Good Samaritan, who will be making his first start since the Gr. I Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs on Nov. 24, where he was second beaten a half-length behind Seeking The Soul. The 4-year-old son of Harlan’s Holiday has two graded stakes wins, which took place on dirt and turf. As a 2-year-old, Good Samaritan won the Gr. II Summer Stakes over the turf at Woodbine and last year won the Gr. II Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga, which was his first start on the main track. He boasts career earnings of $951,116. An at least second-place finish in the New Orleans Handicap would place him over the million dollar mark. He will break from post four under Joel Rosario, who has ridden Good Samaritan in all ten career starts.

Trainer Brendan Walsh and owner DARRS Inc. are looking for back-to-back wins in the New Orleans ‘Cap this year with Scuba (post three, 9-2, Florent Geroux) after taking last year’s edition with Honorable Duty. The 7-year-old son of Tapit is a multiple graded stakes winner having found most of his success in dirt marathon events such as the 2016 editions of the Gr. III Greenwood Cup at Parx Racing and the Gr. II Marathon Stakes at Santa Anita. His last victory came three starts ago in the Gr. III Hawthorne Gold Cup at its namesake track back in November of last year.

Hollywood Handsome (post two, Jose Ortiz, 15-1), Han Sense (post four, Rafael Hernandez, 12-1) and Leofric (post six, 9-2, Javier Castellano) round of the field.

Coolmore Buys Aylmerton Half Share

Coolmore Buys Aylmerton Half Share

Coolmore has bought half of G2 Todman S. winner Aylmerton (Aus) (Siyouni {Fr}), who lines up as a 16-1 chance in Saturday’s G1 Golden Slipper. Trained by Jean Dubois, Aylmerton won on debut at Canterbury on Feb. 21 for owner/breeder Woodpark Stud before taking the Todman 11 days ago over stakes winner Ef Troop (Aus) (Spirit of Boom {Aus}). Those also listed as new owners in the colt include John Camilleri’s Fairway Thoroughbreds, Emmaroo Bloodstock, Ramsey Pastoral and Clairden Racing.

Aylmerton, out of the Smart Strike mare Aloona, is from the family of The Queen’s G2 Hardwicke S. winner Dartmouth (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) and GI Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Arcangues (Sagace {Fr}), G1 Prix de Diane winner Aquarelliste (Fr) (Danehill) and GI Charles Whittingham Memorial S. winner Artiste Royal (Ire) (Danehill). He was conceived in France and is the lone runner Down Under for Siyouni, who stands at the Aga Khan Studs and was France’s leading sire last year.

“A lot of people don’t know about this stallion from France but he is very, very good and the leading stallion over there,” Coolmore spokesman Michael Kirwan told Sydney Morning Herald. “Alymerton caught our eye when he won at Canterbury and the Todman has always been a good guide to the Golden Slipper. He is a magnificent type and has the formula to go on and become a very good horse. He ticked all the boxes for us.”

Jockey Flores Clings to Life in Philly Hospital

Jockey Flores Clings to Life in Philly Hospital

Jose Luis Flores, the all-time leading money-earning jockey at Parx Racing and the former Philadelphia Park, remains hospitalized and in a coma with a grim prognosis as of noon Tuesday after suffering traumatic head and spine injuries in a spill at the Bensalem, Pennsylvania, track in the ninth race Mar. 19.

“He’s on life support and his wife is waiting for some family members to arrive from Florida to see him,” Sam Elliott, the Parx director of racing, told TDN via phone. “Then they’ll make the decision to do whatever they’re going to do. As of now, he’s still with us.”

Flores, 56, had attained the lead aboard 14-1 Love Rules (Not For Love) in a starter-allowance six-furlong sprint, but was engaged on both sides by challengers nearing the seven-sixteenths pole. His mount suddenly fell between those rivals, and it appears as if he was struck by a midpack horse, The Pooch (City Zip), who also fell and unseated jockey Ruben Silvera. Easy River (Not For Love) dislodged jockey Carol Cedeno when swerving to avoid the spills, and two other horses were eased in attempts to avoid further collisions.

“If you look at it, the horse in back of him just made really solid contact with him,” Elliott said. “I haven’t spoken to the doctors, so I don’t want to speculate on the exact nature of his injuries. I didn’t see him on the racetrack, but I saw him when they transferred him to an ambulance, and he was unconscious then.”

Flores is hospitalized at Jefferson Torresdale Hospital in Philadelphia, where scores of members of the Parx racing community have kept a vigil since Monday evening alongside his wife, Joanne McDaid-Flores.

“This is a well-loved, top-flight guy,” Elliott said. “Always helped younger riders. If they were all like him, boy this would be a real easy business. He’s 56 years old, still came out and worked hard every day. His wife used to be a jockey, and she still gallops horses. They have a seven-year-old [son] together, and Jose has older children.”

Elliott said Love Rules was euthanized, and that a necropsy scheduled for Tuesday might reveal more about what caused the horse to fall.

“If you look at the form of [Love Rules], he just won a $25,000 starter [allowance],” Elliott said. “Nothing indicates this would happen. I’m not sure anybody is really clear yet how it happened. The horse ended up with a broken shoulder. That’s usually from a fall. The horse is out for a post-mortem today at the New Bolton Center, so we’ll let them make the determination about how it happened. But ‘how’ isn’t really that important at the moment.”

Jason Klouser, an enforcement official with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Thoroughbred Horse Racing, would not confirm that the bureau is involved in any pending necropsy, but he did say other jockeys in the race would be interviewed by the bureau’s officials. “Any time there’s an incident on the track, it’s thoroughly investigated, and that’s as much as I can share with you at this time,” he added.

The other two fallen riders and horses escaped serious injury, Elliott said.

“Ruben Silvera walked back into the jocks’ room after it,” Elliott said. “He was shook up, and I think he’s probably a little body sore this morning. Carol Cedeno had pain in her neck. She had an MRI, they kept her overnight, and she was released this morning. I spoke to her, and they say she can return to work tomorrow.

“[The Pooch] was okay. And [Easy River], the outrider caught him and brought him back to the paddock,” Elliott continued. “He was sore enough that the veterinarian had the horse ambulance come get him. But he was able to walk onto the van, and as of this morning he’s probably a little body sore, but otherwise okay.”

Parx management made the decision to call off live racing Tuesday in the wake of the tragic accident. A notice on the Facebook page of the Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association (PTHA) said Parx would be closed for training Wednesday, Mar. 21, but that’s because a snowstorm is in the forecast. Similarly, the Parx horsemen’s awards banquet Wednesday evening had already been rescheduled for Mar. 28 because of the expected inclement weather.

Flores was inducted into the Parx Hall of Fame five years ago. A biography on the PTHA website explained that his father was a jockey in his native Peru, and once the younger Flores showed an interest in riding, he learned the trade at a farm before serving his on-track apprenticeship. As a journeyman, he moved to Panama in 1983, competing at Hipodromo Presidente Ramon for four years before settling in Miami and riding at Calder, Hialeah and Gulfstream.

In the early ’90s, Flores was a dominant standings-topper at Penn National. He switched his main base to Parx shortly thereafter. Equibase lists him with 4,650 wins from 28,684 starts with over $64 million in earnings.

Elliott said that beyond asking for prayers, the Parx racing community hasn’t yet outlined a definite way others can help.

“I think everyone’s kind of coming to grips with what happened here, and I’m sure some sort of fund will be set up for his family,” Elliott said. “We’ll figure that one out as we go along here. I went in this morning, and I just thought out of respect for Jose and his family that we shouldn’t operate today. Most of the riders were at the hospital comforting his wife, Joanne. It was good to see. Personally, I don’t think the riders would have been able to answer the bell today. On Saturday, weather permitting, we’re just going to regroup and go out and race–it’s what we do.”
