Santa Anita Park Races Update

Next, news of Santa Anita Park races update. Are races returning anytime soon? Yes.

Firstly, racing at Santa Anita Park was suspended on Friday at the direction of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. The notice provided by the department stated.

Secondly, “After a review by our department, live racing of horses has been deemed a non-essential operation. Horse racing may not continue under the health officer order.”

Therefore, despite the announcement by the state’s health department, Aidan Butler, acting director of California racing for The Stronach Group, said Sunday that he is “fairly optimistic” racing will soon return to Santa Anita Park.

“I’m an optimistic guy,” Butler said.

Furthermore, the health department’s decision came a few hours after the California Horse Racing Board released an advisory noting the board “is relying on state, county and local health authorities to determine whether horse racing is deemed essential for exemption from shelter-in-place orders issued by those authorities.

Upcoming Santa Anita Park Races Update Soon

“The CHRB will assist health authorities in enforcing their decisions.”
Even though racing has been suspended at the Santa Anita Park, it continues in other parts of the state. Butler said Santa Anita officials “are in an open dialogue with the L.A. County health department.

“They do seem to be understanding, or are starting to understand, the really unique circumstances surrounding horse racing,” Butler said on Thoroughbred Los Angeles. “Giving us the ability to train without the ability to race…doesn’t make a great deal of sense. Optically, to the outside world, it’s, ‘Why would you continue racing?’ I keep saying these people don’t quite get it.

However, if you understand how the ecosystem works, you need to train. If you have the inability to race, then the training is put in jeopardy because obviously the whole financial engine [of racing] funds all of the ability to keep the backside going, for instance. It just needs a little more explaining and a few tweaks to our protocols. But I’m fairly optimistic we can get back up and running.”

In conclusion, the we can expect races come May.

“Certainly things can change over time.” said Carstanjen, “but this was a very thoughtful. Carefully considered plan that we’re implementing. We feel really good about it, and we feel really confident about it.
“We also feel confident that we are going to run the Kentucky Derby, and we are going to run it with a crowd. The Kentucky Derby is a participatory event. Its energy and its magic really comes from everybody participating and being there to enjoy it.

“So we’re going to make it happen. This race has happened 145 years in a row. It’s going to happen 146. We’ll roll with the punches. However, we feel very, very good that September’s the right date.” Time will tell.

Bill Parcells Hopes Three Technique Qualifies For Kentucky Derby

Legendary NFL Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells won two Super Bowls as a head coach during his 19-year coaching career. He is hoping to add another major win to his resume. This at the 2020 Kentucky Derby with Three Technique.

Parcells’ three-year-old colt, trained by Jeremiah Englehart, ran his first race since November last week, finishing second in the Smarty Jones Stakes. He is entered in this week’s Rebel Stakes and Parcells is hoping he will earn enough points to book a spot in this year’s Run for the Roses. Can it be done?

“We both know what we’re trying to do. We just hope we can go forward,” Parcells said. “I don’t know exactly what to expect.”

Parcells purchased Three Technique for $180,000 at Fasig-Tipton’s Kentucky Select Yearling Sale. So far, he has shown signs of being a legitimate Kentucky Derby threat. This after winning two of the four races he participated in as a two-year-old. Also, finishing second in the other two races.

Does Bill Parcells Three Technique Have a Shot?

Bill Parcells Three Technique

“He’s doing everything right leading into the race,” Englehart said. “I’m pretty happy with where he is.”

When asked if having a horse in the Derby would compare to the adrenaline rush of a Super Bowl, Parcells replied: “I think if I am lucky enough to have a horse in there. I would feel pretty similar to what I felt (in the Super Bowl). Yes, I’m pretty sure I would. I get very excited when my horses have a big race. That would be the ultimate.”

Even though Parcells didn’t like owners breathing down his neck as a coach, he is very involved as a horse owner. This comes as no surprise to former players.

“For me, there is no surprise why he was such a successful head coach,” Englehart said. “We talk just about every day. Sometimes I’ve got good news. Sometimes I’ve got bad news. He processes all of the information well and makes decisions from there. Usually, the decisions he makes are pretty spot on.”

Will the Kentucky Derby be Postponed?

Many of our visitors have asked us, Will the Kentucky Derby be postponed? In a word, yes. The 146th Kentucky Derby will be postponed to September 5th, 2020. The race will still take place at Churchill Downs, however has been pushed back to September.

If you’ve ever looked at a racing form, you can easily get overwhelmed. With stats, percentages and other jargon that doesn’t really make sense. These angles could be profitable. However, if you are able to bet them correctly but that is an art form into itself.

Therefore, what can you do to bring home a profit on Kentucky Derby day? What trends and analysis can you pick up in order to make educated wagers? Let’s look a bit closer at these trends that can help you pick winners.

Closers Haven’t Been Successful in Recent Years

Having said that, if you go back and watch the replays of the past few Derby winners, you’ll notice that most of them are on the lead or near the lead in the final turn. This is important to know. For the reason that horses that do not have to pass other horses have a clear pathway to generate momentum.

Firstly, they aren’t getting dirt kicked in the face. Also, they’ve covered less track since they can likely move towards the inside rail as they make their move.

However, if you had bet on horses with closing, come from behind styles, you’d be down money when you calculate wagers on a $2 metric.

Betting on Horses That Have Already Peaked

Secondly, one of the toughest things to do as a handicapper is to find the horse that has already peaked and throw him out. The way to look for this is to look for the horse that hasn’t won a race in months and perhaps only snuck into the Kentucky Derby on a perfect trip. Ready to do that?

In conclusion, the best example of this in the 2019 Kentucky Derby was By My Standards. He was a fantastic horse in his own right but he was entirely outclassed by the field at the 2019 Derby. He won his qualifying race at 22/1 betting odds to make it into the Derby but if you re-watch the race, everything went bad for his rival and By My Standards found daylight on the rail and took advantage.

Samy Camacho Believes in King Guillermo

Camacho’s faith in King Guillermo earns him a spot in the Kentucky Derby.

Kentucky Derby hopeful King Guillermo’s owner Victor Martinez and jockey Samy Camacho met for the first time on Wednesday. A few days before the three-year-old was to run in the Tampa Bay Derby. After the meeting, both men said they shared a belief that King Guillermo could win the Tampa Bay Derby.

“Samy said, ‘If this horse keeps going like he has been in his workouts, we’re winning the race,’” said Martinez, the retired Major League Baseball slugger who owns King Guillermo under his Victoria’s Ranch banner. “It gave me such a great feeling. He had so much faith in the horse, it gave me a lot of confidence.”

King Guillermo rewarded their faith by winning the Tampa Bay Derby impressively. Finishing the race in the third-fastest time in the 40-year history of the race.

Camacho, who was born in Venezuela like Martinez and trainer Juan Carlos Avila, felt an instant kinship upon meeting Martinez. Martinez retired from Major League Baseball after the 2018 season with 246 home runs, 1,178 runs batted in and a .295 batting average.

“We talked about everything – about business, about life, about baseball – and the thing that was most important to him was that I had faith in the horse,” Camacho said. “He’s a humble person who loves racing.
“I had asked Juan Carlos Avila two weeks ago to ride this horse. Because I love how he runs.”

“I just wanted to break well (Saturday) because we were in the No. 11 post, and it’s a short run to the first turn,” Camacho said. “The only thing we needed was for him to be relaxed and comfortable, and we got good position (behind pace-setter Relentless Dancer). I made one run between the half-mile pole and the 3/8-mile pole and he showed what he can do.”

After winning the Tampa Bay Derby, Martinez confirmed that Camacho will mount King Guillermo in the Kentucky Derby. The Kentucky Derby is Saturday, September 5th, 2020. Due to Coronavirus Covid-19 concerns the race has been moved from May into first Saturday of September.

John Shirreffs Happy To Have Honor A.P. Back On Track

John Shireffs-trained colt Honor A.P. hadn’t run a race since October last year thanks to a bruised foot in January, which forced the three-year-old to miss a scheduled start in that month’s Sham Stakes as well as training time.

On Saturday, Honor A.P. made his first start since the injury and finished second in the San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita Park, which brought a smile to his trainer’s face. After the race, a smiling Shireffs said, “I can’t wait to go a mile and a quarter.”

“He hadn’t run in four months — actually a little over four months — and it was his first time against winners in a graded stakes,” Shirreffs said. “There was a 2-year-old champion (Storm the Court), an undefeated horse (Authentic) and multiple stakes winners in the race. So I thought he ran really well.”

Will Honor A.P. Make John Shireffs Proud?

Shireffs added that he was happy with the colt’s performance, especially after such a long layoff.

“I’m very proud of him, and I thought he ran extremely well,” Smith said after weighing in on Saturday. “We were a bit behind coming in because he bruised his foot earlier…so we missed some time with him. But I thought if I could finish within a couple lengths of whoever won it today, then that would be a really good effort.

“If I was to win it, that would be incredible. He should move forward off this and have a better kick next time.”

Honor A.P.’s second-place finish earned him 20 qualification points for the Kentucky Derby. However, to qualify for the Derby, which is less than two months away, Honor A.P. will have to finish in the Santa Anita Derby exacta, which awards 100 points to the winner, 40 points to the runner up, and 20 points to the third place finisher.

Kentucky Derby Futures 2020

The 146th Kentucky Derby takes place Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 and below are Kentucky Derby futures. If you plan to bet on Kentucky Derby 2020 you may do so at these racebooks.

The best thing about the Kentucky Derby futures festival is that anyone can own a horse that can qualify for the big race. Of course, it is not easy to own a horse. Look at the 2020 Kentucky Oaks Champion Serengeti Empress. Her ownership group bought her for $5,000 and she was the only horse in their barn. Talk about luck!

While a Kentucky Derby winner can come from anywhere, it is important to look at some of the big players who own some of the up and coming Colts that could run on Derby Day. A complete list below.

Winchell Thoroughbreds

The Winchell family pioneered breakfast diners across the United States and Canada. Subsequently, this allowed them to fuel their passion of horse ownership.

Given the fact that Winchell Thoroughbreds has sank big money into buying top thoroughbreds, it wouldn’t be surprising to see this ownership group in the winner’s circle on Derby Day. Why you ask?

Betting Odds for Kentucky Derby Futures

Gary & Mary West

Most notably, the owners of the controversial Maximum Security have a large investment in a thoroughbred breeding operation. Also, they have a stable of talented up and comers. The Wests were famously bitter about the 2020 Kentucky Derby DQ and they might be more motivated than ever to see the Winner’s Circle. The West’s found success in the telecom world and parlayed that into horse racing success.

Mike Repole

The owners of the Breeders’ Cup Classic Champion Vino Rosso are on a roll and they could ride this hot streak all the way into the Kentucky Derby winners circle.

The Repole family first found business success in the sports hydration world. This investment helped Repole buy a stable and begin running horses in big races all around the world. The Repole barn certainly attracts the best trainers in the world and many horses that come out of this barn have a legitimate shot at winning the Kentucky Derby futures.

When you use the ownership factor when making your Kentucky Derby 146 futures wagers, you can accurately find the right angle that help you cash winning tickets on Derby Day.

2020 Kentucky Derby Trainers to Watch

One of the biggest story lines leading up to the 2020 Kentucky Derby is the trainers of the horses. Will big name trainers get a horse in the Derby? Can Bob Baffert win his 6th Kentucky Derby? Will other legendary trainers find infamy and glory on the first Saturday in May?

Let’s look at 3 trainers that you will undoubted hear about at Kentucky Derby 146

Bob Baffert

In 2019, Bob Baffert put 3 horses in the Kentucky Derby and none of them were successful. The esteemed trainer of Justify and American Pharoah will continue to be a living legend and this year’s crop of horses promises to give him many chances at an elusive Kentucky Derby title.

Todd Pletcher

Did you know that Todd Pletcher has quietly won 2 Kentucky Derbys over the years? Many analysts continued to criticize Todd saying that he couldn’t win the big races. Pletcher silenced the critics in 2017 when Always Dreaming won the Kentucky Derby. To not leave any doubt about his abilities, Vino Rosso regained top form and won the 2019 Breeders Cup Classic at Santa Anita Park for the Pletcher barn.

Doug O’Neill

The California based Doug O’Neill always seems to have his horses ready to run in the Derby. The trainer of I’ll Have Another and Nyquist always seems to send a string of horses to Churchill Downs to compete on the world’s biggest stage. Because of this, any horse Doug O’Neill puts on the Kentucky Derby Trail should be regarded as a serious threat to win.

Keep these three trainers in mind when you are watching for horses that could win the Kentucky Derby. Carefully examine all of the trainers up and coming horses and determine which trainer could have an actual chance at winning the Run for the Roses in 2020.
