Quick update for those who are wondering... [Nov. 1st, 2008|03:44 pm]
Cara Blanco Owners' Community

Cara Blanco started his training as a Hunter-Jumper earlier this month, and the early report is that he's enjoying it.

SMOF Racing has acquired their replacement horse with a small investment greater than the proceeds of the sale of CB by picking up an RNA at the Barretts' Fall Mixed sale on Monday. Il Marchese (Hip 146) by Anziyan Royalty out of Spirit of Punches by Tanks Prospect. He's an April 2007 colt and will be boarded in Los Alamos, CA through his Breaking and Training mid-year 2009. Then, it will either be California or Washington to go with Chambers or a recommendation from Chambers.

There are currently 70 1% shares available at a $300 buy-in. We expect maintenance will be running less than $7/month for 1% for the At Pasture months while he's finishing his growing (Nov 2008 - mid-April 2009 we expect), as his boarding rate is $14/day when in a Yearling Pasture. Then Breaking & Training is at $45/day...and at a monthly rate, this figures to be roughly $1550/month with vet and farrier or $15.50/per 1% share until he's back at the track.  This buy-in price will go up quarterly, as expenses accrue.

If you are interested, please feel free to email me at: sandra.childress@gmail for more information.

Emerald Downs 2008 Meet ends: Martinez earns Riding Championship [Sep. 30th, 2008|08:29 am]

[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]

The 2008 Meet ended on Sunday, Sept. 28th, and our rider, Seth Martinez had a stellar season. With 597 mounts (8 fewer than Ricky Fraizer), he brought 122 home for Wins (5 more than Fraizer). Fraizer snuck past Seth in dollars earned by $745!!! Seth had purse winnings of $1,281,797 to RIcky's $1,282,542. And he missed the first 18 days of the meet due to the injury in the gate at Turf Paradise the day before he was to ride Cara Blanco the first time.

This was his first season at Emerald Downs. I don't think it will be his last.

ETA And Seth is 100 of 100 Top Jockeys in the USA based on purse winnings. If you sort the list available here, you can see he's higher based on total rides, total wins, total places, total shows, %Wins, %WPS. Bbut because he hasn't won a huge-purse race, he's just hanging on at the bottom of the list.

Jockey News: Seth on track for second Riding Championship [Sep. 9th, 2008|07:34 pm]

With 100 wins, Seth is tied with wins for first place with Kevin Radke (but breaks that tie with monies won at $1,049,699) at Emerald Downs. The meet has 12 more racing days to it, and Radke is out with 3 broken ribs. Back in third place is Ricky Fraizer with 98 wins...so it's anybody's guess as to how this meet will end.

Well, I've not had a chance to see it, but heard it while driving on I-70 in CO. Cara didn't get a good break, and ended up 3rd.

Still haven't spoken with our trainer in the last 3 days. Hope to tomorrow to know how he came out of it.

 And based on the review of the Past Performances and the Beyer Report....it's going to probably be Cara/Reason to Reckon/Naches Deputy (if he can get a clean trip). Okoboji for a Superfect (3rd/4th wheeled in) not a bad idea...but not moch higher. Larrythestableguy hits the handicapper selections, but doesn't earn enough points for the Concensus Pick.

So, I'm not going to tell you how to bet. I'm just going to say...I'd hedge them given the history of CB and a few of these guys.

Jockey news: Seth rides 6 winners on Sunday [Jul. 27th, 2008|07:21 pm]

I'm sure there will be an article tomorrow to link to it [edit:  here's the EmD Article.], but Seth rode six of the 10 winners on Sunday, including Chhaya Dance in the Mt. Rainier Handicap ($75,000 purse).

His races were:

#1 Shansey in a 1 mile 3yo maiden clain @ $12,500

#3 Malia Sofia in a 6F 3yo Allowance Opt. Claim @ $40,000

#4 Maxey Boy in a 1 mile 3 and up Claiming @ $25,000 - 22,500

#7 Chhaya Dance in the 1 1/8 mile stakes for $70,000

#8 Shampoo in the Boeing Handicap at 1 1/16 mile for $50,000

#9 Way Too Much in a 1 mile 3yo Allowance Opt. Claim @ $32,000

And if someone had bet Seth for a Pick-3 on races 7-9, it would have only paid $39.50.  I'd previously teased Seth about being able to have a Martinez-Pick-6 ticket one of these days, and he smiled -- flattered -- like that would be a dream day. Well, shoot, wasn't too far off...but EmD doesn't have a Pick-6 wager. Will have to wait until we're back at TuP for that to happen.

Next Race: C4000-NW2L .... so what does that mean? [Jul. 8th, 2008|11:05 am]
Cara Blanco Owners' Community

[Tags|, ]

Ok, time to decipher the condition book and translate the jargon for everyone now that Cara Blanco has "broken his maiden" (aka had his first win).

C4000-NW2L

C = claiming, another owner/trainer may submit a form and check (plus tax for geldings) to purchase the horses in this race

4000 = the price of the claiming tag (at EmD this is almost the bottom. $3500 is the bottom)

NW = non-winners of... means he's won at least 1 but not mre than....

2 = limit of the number of wins he can have to run in the race. In this case everyone has won 1 but not 2. If it was 3, all could have won 2 but not 3.

L = Lifetime. This means in his life of racing. Sometimes it could be NW2since January. So he could have won one or more before January, but no more than once since January.

There are also distance conditions with the NW# races. It could say "of 1 mile or longer", and that would mean he could have won all the 6F races he wanted, and they would not count against him for the conditions of this race. 

As for the WHEN. Mike said he could go this week if there was a race for him. Why not, he came back the way he has after all his other races. But looking at the condition book, the one that fits the C4000-NW2L at 1Mile or longer is on July 20 and is 1-1/16 Mile. There is one on the 18th, but it's a little different in the conditions. it's a C3500, with allowances for NW2 at a mile or over since Jan1 of 2lbs, or since Oct1 of 4lbs, and is being run at 1-1/8Mile. Cara would be much more likely claimed at $3500 than at $4000, so I don't think Mike would place him here...but the purse is worth more ($6600) than the other ($6100).
