‘Nice To Be Back Home’: Gaffalione Returns To Florida For Gulfstream Championship Meet

‘Nice To Be Back Home’: Gaffalione Returns To Florida For Gulfstream Championship Meet

Jockey Tyler Gaffalione registered his first win of the 2019-2020 Championship Meet aboard 1-2 favorite Durlyn in Thursday’s seventh race at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

After spending the past several months riding primarily in Kentucky with a summer sojourn to Saratoga, the 25-year-old native of nearby Davie, Fla. is happy to be home for the winter.

“It’s really nice to be back home. It’s been a great summer and fall but it’s nice to come home and see my family and enjoy the nice weather,” Gaffalione said. “It’s been pretty cold in Kentucky so I’m definitely enjoying all this. I’m just looking forward to the meet and riding some nice horses, hopefully.”

Represented by Matt Muzikar, Gaffalione tied for second at both the Keeneland spring and fall meets, each with 14 wins; amassed 24 wins and $1.5 million in purse earnings at Churchill Downs’ fall stand; and had 12 victories – two in graded-stakes – and nearly $1.3 million in purses earned in his first full summer at Saratoga.

Of his 14 graded-stakes wins this year, 10 have come since the 2018-19 Championship Meet ended topped by his first Triple Crown race victory with War of Will in the Preakness Stakes (G1) May 18 at Pimlico Race Course. Most recently, he won the Dec. 1 Matriarch (G1) at Del Mar with Get Stormy.

“I’m just very blessed, very fortunate. I have a great agent and he finds me good horses to ride. I’ve been able to ride for some good connections, the owners, trainers and some really nice horses. Hopefully we can just keep building on everything and we’re looking forward to a good winter.”

Gaffalione was fourth in wins (70) and sixth in purses ($3.2 million) at last winter’s Championship Meet, after ranking third in wins in both 2017-18 (87) and 2016-17 (62), with respective earnings of $4.039 million and $2.28 million.

“For this meet you always want to start looking ahead to the Triple Crown, so we’re looking for a nice 3-year-old for next year,” Gaffalione said. “The goal is always to be leading rider, but if we could crack the top three that’s a great accomplishment.”

Godolphin Repeats As John Deere Award Winner For Outstanding Breeders Of Breeders’ Cup World Championships And Challenge Series

Godolphin Repeats As John Deere Award Winner For Outstanding Breeders Of Breeders’ Cup World Championships And Challenge Series

Rewarded for wins by its progeny on three continents, Godolphin, one of the world’s most prominent racing and breeding establishments, has repeated as the winner of the John Deere Award honoring the outstanding breeder of the 2019 Breeders’ Cup World Championships and the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series.

The John Deere Award, presented by Breeders’ Cup Limited and NTRA Advantage, emphasizes the contributions of breeders to the Breeders’ Cup program. The industry’s breeders provide funding for the purses for the World Championships through the annual nominations of foals and stallions.

NTRA Advantage and John Deere will award a John Deere TS Gator Utility Vehicle to Godolphin.

The John Deere award winner is determined by the breeder who received the highest number of first-place finishes in graded/group stakes in the international Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series of 86 stakes races in 11 countries, and in the 14 Breeders’ Cup World Championships races (13 Grade 1 events, and 1 Grade 2) held this year at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif. Grade/Group 1 wins were worth 10 points; Grade/Group 2 wins were worth six points; Grade/Group 3 wins were worth four points, and listed stakes wins were worth two points.

Godolphin-bred runners earned 40 points by winning four Group 1 races in France, Japan and the United States through the  Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series. The 2-year-old colt Earthlight (IRE) gave Godolphin its first winner in the John Deere Award competition, when he won the Group 1 Darley Prix Morny at Deauville in France on Aug. 18. Godolphin then won three races over an eight-day span, starting with Tower of London (JPN), a son of 2008 Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Raven’s Pass, winning the Sprinters Stakes at Nakayama Race Course in Japan on Sept. 29. The following weekend, Godolphin homebred Maxfield, a son of 2006 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Street Sense, captured the Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland. Godolphin’s fourth win took place the next day at Longchamp in France, when Victor Ludorum (GB) was victorious in the Qatar Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere for 2-year-olds.

Godolphin, which won its first John Deere Award in 2018, ties Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey and Coolmore as the only breeders to win the honor twice.

“Godolphin is honored to win the John Deere Breeders’ Cup award this year,” said Dan Pride, Chief Operating Officer for Godolphin USA.  “We strive to compete at the highest level wherever we race around the world and this award recognizes a tremendous team effort to finish with Grade/Group 1 wins in three countries.”

“We once again congratulate Godolphin and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed for their outstanding success on a global scale as winners of the John Deere Award,” said Dora Delgado, Breeders’ Cup Executive Vice President of Racing and Nominations. “In addition to Godolphin, we also thank all breeders for their support and commitment to the Breeders’ Cup program, and extend our appreciation to John Deere and NTRA Advantage for their sponsorship of this award and their recognition of the importance of the breeding industry.”

“We congratulate Godolphin on this outstanding achievement for the second year in a row,” said Auston Till.  Equine Business Manager, John Deere. “We are thrilled to award a John Deere Gator Utility Vehicle for this outstanding accomplishment, and look forward to next year’s Breeders’ Award winner.”

Accentuating the competitiveness of this year’s results was that 12 breeders finished tied for second place, each with 20 points: Listed below are the names of the second-place finishers  and the progeny that won either a Breeders’ Cup Challenge race or a Breeders’ Cup World Championships race:

CONVICT (c, 2, Constitution–Southern Charmer {SP, $109,615}, by Dixie Union) was bet down to 9-5 favoritism from a 4-1 morning-line quote for this debut off a best-of-89 half-mile over the Belmont training track in :48 flat Nov. 22 and proved the public right with a gutsy score.

More Graytful (Graydar) ranged up to challenge the chalk in the lane, but Convict kept on finding to hold that rival at bay by a head. He is the 25th winner for his freshman sire (by Tapit). The winner’s dam has a weanling filly by Tiznow and was bred back to Justify. Sales history: $180,000 2yo ’19 EASMAY. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $34,100.

Stall Considering Pegasus Start for Tom’s d’Etat

Stall Considering Pegasus Start for Tom’s d’Etat

After declaring his intentions to give his recent Grade I winner Tom’s d’Etat (Smart Strike) the early months of 2020 off, trainer Al Stall Jr. said he is rethinking his options and may race the 6-year-old in the Jan. 25 GI Pegasus World Cup Invitational S. at Gulfstream.

Stall made the comments when appearing on this week’s edition of the TDN’s Writers’ Room podcast.

“I opened my big mouth and said ‘Let’s freshen him up a bit and point for the back half of the season,” Stall said. “That was before I had a chance to go over him really closely, jog him and had a chance to look at his demeanor. He really came out of the Clark well. I’m not exactly sure what we’re going to do. He’ll get a brief freshening for now. Whether we’d try the Pegasus again, I don’t know. He will definitely stay in America. No Saudi Arabia. No Dubai. If we don’t run in then Pegasus we’ll back off him a little more and point for something like the [GII] New Orleans Handicap or the [GIII] Ben Ali at Keeneland. We’ll look at some of the races Blame ran in in 2010, like the [GI] Whitney and the [GII] Stephen Foster.”

Stall’s also explained the reasoning for his plan to not leave the U.S. with Tom’s d’Etat despite the big-money Saudi Cup and G1 Dubai World Cup beckoning.

“Our horse will be seven in 2020,” he said. “It’s a long way to go and there’s a lot for him here domestically. I want to make it as easy as possible on the horse and keep him in our neck of the woods. We’d be very happy to win nice races like possibly the Pegasus, possibly the Stephen Foster, possibly the Whitney.”

Having overcome a series of setbacks in his career, Tom’s d’Etat did his best racing this year at age six. He finished up 2019 with back-to-back wins in the GII Fayette S. at Keeneland before winning the GI Clark H. His worst performance of the year came in the 2019 Pegasus, where he was ninth, beaten 27 1/4 lengths.
