Horses killed, stables erased in California wildfires

Horses killed, stables erased in California wildfires

Posted in Horse Racing News

Southern California wildfires that swept through the San Luis Rey Downs training site on Thursday are being described as a “war zone” as an estimated 25 horses died in the fire or due to fire-related injuries, although the number of dead is expected to climb. According to the Los Angeles Times, a wind-driven fire, one of the many that are wreaking havoc on Southern California, engulfed eight barns at the 500-stall facility for thoroughbreds and quickly spread stable to stable with horses trapped inside. Horseman tried to free the horses from the barns with the intent to get them to the training track, which is out of harm’s way, but the fast-moving fire overwhelmed many horses. “It was dark, everything was hot and she wouldn’t come out,” horse trainer Cliff Sise told KFMB-TV about trying to save a filly. “I opened the pen and tried to get behind her and get her out, and she wouldn’t get out. She burned to death that quick.” Sise’s horrific and heartbreaking account was one of the many from the San Luis Rey Downs training site, located in Bonsall, California north of San Diego. Trainer Doug O’Neill had 46 horses at the training facility and says all but 10 are accounted for. “It’s like a horrible war scene,” O’Neill told the Times. “It’s beyond words of the devastation that the fire wreaked.” The San Luis Rey Downs fire is one of the many wildfires in Los Angeles, Ventura, and San Diego counties that have burned more than 130,000 acres and are far from being under control. The surviving horses were taken to Del Mar, and the Los Alamitos Race Course in nearby Cypress canceled its Friday afternoon racing program out of respect for the horses and people involved. Many veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other volunteers have donated their time to take care of the stressed and injured animals, and several organizations have donated feed and other supplies.

Former England soccer star ‘delighted’ with jockey debut at Ascot

Former England soccer star ‘delighted’ with jockey debut at Ascot

Posted in Horse Racing News

Former England soccer player Michael Owen made his debut as a jockey at Ascot Racecourse on Friday and finished with an impressive second place in front of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. Owen, who remains the youngest player to reach 100 Premier League goals, was thrilled with his finish in the charity event as he rode Calder Prince in an event staged to raise funds for the Prince’s Countryside Trust. Owen led towards the end of the seven-furlong race but was eventually overhauled by Golden Wedding. Racing supplements are part of horse racing. Racehorsemeds.com is an international supplier of veterinary products to maintain the health of your racing animal and to maximize their performance. Owen utilizes a number of veterinary products since retiring from soccer in 2013. He has long held an interest in racing, breeding and owning horses out of his stables in Cheshire in northwest England. “The horse was great and I’m really pleased with how it’s gone. I can’t keep the smile off my face, I loved it,” said Owens, who had never been on a horse before March, 2017. “They seemed to go really quick, it was the fastest I’ve ever been on a horse, but the horse slowed into the back and whipped up on the inside and all of a sudden I was in front – I was thinking ‘come on now’.” The former England, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester United striker was one of 10 amateur jockeys to take part in the race. He said he hopes to continue to be a jockey but will likely only ride in charity races. “It was such good fun and I’m really pleased with the whole outcome,” Owen said, via The Telegraph. “My horse ran a cracking race and I’m delighted to be second. “I’d like to think plenty of good will come out of it, lots of money raised for charity. We’re all home in one piece and I had the time of my life.” For more information about horse racing and other animal racing supplements, visit Racehorse...

Breeders’ Cup winner Battle of Midway retired to stud

Breeders’ Cup winner Battle of Midway retired to stud

Posted in Horse Racing News

After capturing the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile purse earlier in November at Del Mar, Battle of Midway has been retired from racing. The 3-year-old son of Smart Strike will spend the 2018 breeding season in Kentucky at WinStar Farm for a stud fee of $20,000. Like breeding, racing supplements are part of horse racing. Racehorsemeds.com is an international supplier of veterinary products to maintain the health of your racing animal and to maximize their performance. Battle of Midway won half of his 10 starts including wins in the Grade 3 Affirmed Stakes and listed Shared Belief Stakes. He finished third in this year’s Kentucky Derby and second in Santa Anita Derby. His Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile win brought his career earnings to $1,249,949. “We are extremely proud of Battle of Midway and the tremendous performance he put forth in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, passing such a fast horse as Sharp Azteca and doing so in such a fast time,” WinStar president Elliott Walden told Daily Racing Form. “It was an incredible race that affirmed the ability we always knew he had.” “Battle of Midway came out of the race in great shape, and it was a very bittersweet decision to make with our partners Don Alberto to retire this horse to stud,” Walden added. “Ultimately, we both partnered on him in the first place because we thought he could be the last great son of Smart Strike to carry on that line at stud, so we are sticking to that plan. WinStar and Don Alberto are very committed to supporting Battle of Midway with world-class mares, because we both believe he possesses the pedigree, looks, conformation, and elite miler speed to become a very important sire.” Battle of Midway was the initial racer out of the Grade 1-winning Concerto mare Rigoletta. His 108 Beyer speed figure marked the second fastest by a Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner behind only Liam’s Map over the last six years.

Gun Runner wins $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic

Gun Runner wins $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic

Posted in Horse Racing News

The richest purse in American horse racing — the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic — capped an incredible 13-race, two-day season-ending championship on Saturday at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club just north of San Diego, California.  The Breeders’ Cup championships are an annual series of Grade I Thoroughbred horse races that began in 1984. For all but one year, the series of races were hosted by United States racetracks. In 2007, the event was turned into a two-day fixture. Legendary horse trainer Bob Baffert was seeking his fourth consecutive Breeders’ Cup Classic win Saturday in the 1 1/4-mile race on dirt after Bayern, American Pharoah, and Arrogate won the previous three years. But it was 9-to-5 favorite Gun Runner, ridden by Florent Geroux and trained by Steve Asmussen, that captured the win over Collected and West Coast. 2017 Breeders’ Cup race winners $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf: Mendelssohn (jockey Ryan Moore) $1 million Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile: Battle Of Midway (Flavien Prat) $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf: Rushing Fall (Javier Castellano) $1 million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint: Bar of Gold (Irad Ortiz Jr.) $1 million Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint: Stormy Liberal (Joel Rosario) $1.5 million Breeders’ Cup Sprint: Roy H (Kent Desormeaux) $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile: World Approval (John Velazquez) $2 million Breeders’ Cup Distaff: Forever Unbridled (John Velazquez) $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies: Caledonia Road (Mike Smith) $2 million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf: Wuheida (William Buick) $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile: Good Magic (Jose L.

California County fairground houses displaced horses

Posted in Horse Racing News

The areas of California devastated by recent wildfires are the home not only of thousands of people, but thousands of animals as well. And animal welfare workers rallied to shelter as many as they could as the fires raged, the Modesto Bee reported, including at an abandoned horse racing facility. Sonoma County, the most well-known county in California’s wine country, is home to more than 27,000 horses, mules and donkeys, the Bee reported, and ranchers in the area also raise sheep, llamas, goats and other animals. Some people were able to relocate their animals before they had to evacuate, while some were left with the unfortunate task of going back home when it was safe and trying to find animals they had to leave behind. Many animals displaced by the fires were housed at the Solano County Fairgrounds. Since the fairgrounds was the site of horse races until about 10 years ago, it had vacant stalls and animal housing facilities available. The county Office of Emergency Services welcomed the displaced livestock, some spray painted with phone numbers in case they got lost, providing them refuge until it was safe to return home.    Rescue groups from the SPCA, government agencies and the University of California Davis Veterinary Medical Center, stepped in to search for animals and tend to the injured. Facebook pages were set up to help reunite missing pets with their people. Many veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other volunteers donated their time to take care of the stressed and sometimes injured animals, and several organizations donated feed and other supplies. Sonoma County Animal Services was working to reunite animals separated from  their owners using the social-media hashtags #tubbsfire and #LOSTPETSsonomacountyfire2017. The agency also is seeking donations to care for animals affected by the fires, as is the UC Davis veterinary teaching hospital Veterinary Catastrophic Need Fund.

Racehorses displaced by California fires

Posted in Horse Racing News

The horrific wildfires burning in Northern California have forced the evacuation of thousands of people in danger from the flames, with friends and relatives stepping up to house the displaced victims. But animals also are affected as fires threaten to destroy the farms and ranches where they live. Several race horses were among the animals that had to be evacuated from the Northern California region. When notified of the need to relocate the animals to safety, the Los Alamitos race track stepped up and offered to take in approximately 90 horses that were in danger, according to Horse Racing Nation. As of late last week, officials said firefighters were making progress in battling the blaze causing devastation throughout wine country, Fox News reported. The fires have left at least 26 dead and forced the evacuation of more than 20,000. Investigators don’t know what started the fires, but pointed to factors such as high winds, the fact that the fires started undetected at night and dried-out vegetation from lack of rain and a hot summer, per CNN. More than 8,000 firefighters from as far away as Australia were fighting the fire. Fortunately for people and horses alike, the blaze was directed away from Southern California and Los Alamitos, and people in that area were allowed to return home. The horses’ owners credited track officials for their willingness to take them in, and said the fact that the skittish horses were able to stay together calmed them down, per Horse Racing Nation. Los Alamitos Race Course, located in Cypress, California, hosts both thoroughbred and quarter horse races, including four quarter horse races with purses of more than $1 million, the most of any track in the United States.
