Untapable is 4-5 early favorite for Oaks

May 1, 2014

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Untapable should feel right at home when she takes to the track for the $1 million Kentucky Oaks.

After all, she's undefeated in two previous races at Churchill Downs, and she's the early 4-5 favorite for Friday's 140th running of the nation's richest race for 3-year-old fillies.

Untapable has won both her starts this year by a combined 17 1/4 lengths. She'll take on 12 rivals in the 1 1/8-mile race.

The filly will be ridden by Rosie Napravnik, who is seeking her second Oaks win. She became the first female jockey to win the Kentucky Derby eve race in 2012 aboard Believe You Can.

''It was so special,'' Napravnik said Thursday. ''It was my all-time favorite moment of my career. I kind of feel like it's my race. I'm really excited to ride a filly I have so much confidence in.''

Untapable's trainer, Steve Asmussen, has an Oaks win on his resume, too, saddling Summerly to victory in 2005.

He is under investigation for alleged abuse of horses by Kentucky and New York racing officials after People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals secretly videotaped scenes and conversations in his barn.

Untapable drew the No. 13 post on the far outside.

Fashion Plate is the early 6-1 second choice in the wagering. She's won her last three starts, including two at Santa Anita with 51-year-old jockey Gary Stevens aboard.

Three-time Oaks winner Todd Pletcher will saddle My Miss Sophia and Got Lucky in an attempt to become the first trainer since D. Wayne Lukas to win the race in consecutive years. He won last year with Princess of Sylmar. Lukas won in 1989-90. He used to employ Pletcher as an assistant.

My Miss Sophia is 3-0 in her career, most recently winning the Gazelle at Aqueduct in her stakes debut. Got Lucky finished second in the Gazelle in her last start.

Bob Baffert, a two-time Oaks winner, will send out Ria Antonia, who will be ridden by Hall of Famer Mike Smith. They were set to team up in Saturday's Kentucky Derby with early second choice Hoppertunity, but the colt was scratched Thursday with a foot problem.

Dallas Stewart will try to win his second Oaks. He trained and partly owned 2006 winner Lemons Forever, and he will send that winner's daughter, Unbridled Forever, to the post on Friday.

Also chasing a second Oaks victory is Calvin Borel, who was aboard Rachel Alexandra in her 20 1/4-length victory in 2009. This time he rides Sugar Shock.

The field for the Kentucky Oaks, from the rail out, with jockey and morning line odds (all starters carry 121 pounds): Please Explain, Jose Lezcano, 50-1; Ria Antonia, Smith, 10-1; Sugar Shock, Borel, 12-1; Rosalind, Joel Rosario, 8-1; Thank You Marylou, Julien Leparoux, 30-1; Kiss Moon, Victor Espinoza, 30-1; Fashion Plate, Stevens, 6-1; Aurelia's Belle, Channing Hill, 50-1; Unbridled Forever, Robby Albarado, 12-1; Empress of Midway, Corey Nakatani, 50-1; My Miss Sophia, Javier Castellano, 8-1; Got Lucky, John Velazquez, 20-1; and Untapable, Napravnik, 4-5.

Dance With Fate prepares for Derby

May 1, 2014


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - For several days this month, Dance With Fate's Kentucky Derby destiny hung in the balance.

The black colt earned a place in the gate for Saturday's 140th running at Churchill Downs by winning the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland on April 12. Despite vaulting to third place on the Derby points leaderboard with the victory, trainer Peter Eurton and Dance With Fate's ownership mulled whether he could make the three-week turnaround between that race and the Triple Crown's marquee event.

They decided the Florida-bred could.

Dance With Fate has shown enough energy and promise in workouts this week that Eurton and jockey Corey Nakatani believe he can overcome his early 20-1 odds and be a factor in the Derby. He drew the 12th post position Wednesday.

''I'm pretty happy,'' Eurton said. ''It's a great draw outside of a lot of speed. I think it's a good spot, just a great place to be.''

But it will be a test for Dance With Fate, who will make just his third start on dirt after building an impressive resume on turf and synthetic surfaces. He has three wins and three seconds in eight career starts, the latest of which suggested to Nakatani that he's just scratched the surface of his ability.

''He's earned his way here, that's half of it,'' said Nakatani, who will ride Dance With Fate for the second time. ''The other part is, I like his running style. He's showing me he's got the credentials to win the race.

''Hopefully, his energy level stays the way it is. Traveling didn't seem to bother him, and I'm pretty confident in his ability to go out there and give his best. That's what we're looking forward to.''

Bolstering Nakatani's and Eurton faith is Dance With Fate's knack for performing when the stakes are high. He preceded his Blue Grass triumph with a runner-up effort in the El Camino Real Derby at Golden Gate Fields in California and posted consecutive seconds in Grade 1 races at Del Mar and Santa Anita last year.

Already impressive as a speed horse, Dance With Fate raised his profile even more in the Blue Grass by rallying from deep in the pack to fly past Pablo Del Monte and favored Bobby's Kitten to win. Just like that, Dance With Fate became a Derby contender, at least points-wise.

But because that win, like Dance With Fate's wins out West, were achieved on synthetic or turf, the question is whether he can run as well on dirt.

His Derby odds somewhat reflect that doubt, to say nothing of the hurdle Dance With Fate already faces in a 20-horse field led by streaking California Chrome. He was made the 5-2 early favorite and will start from the fifth post position.

On the one hand, the surface might not matter because two of Dance With Fate's runner-up finishes came on dirt at Santa Anita. But that track also was the site of his eighth-place finish in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, where he was squeezed at the start and never was a factor.

Eurton believes his horse will make the transition to dirt, partly because he has seemed livelier in workouts, including in the slop Wednesday. If anything, Dance With Fate appears eager to build on the momentum from his Blue Grass win.

''I believe there are horses for courses, that old saying goes,'' Eurton said. ''But he's amazingly aggressive and nothing really bothers him. I didn't think there'd be a big process of him getting used to it.

''I just hoped he liked it like other tracks we've shipped him to. I don't think he'll have a problem.''

Rosie Napravnik chasing history in Derby

May 1, 2014



LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - She started out her career disguising her gender, riding under the initials A.R. Napravnik. In the male-dominated world of horse racing, Anna Rose Napravnik figured she'd have better luck if nobody noticed a woman's name in the track program.

With her red hair tucked under her helmet, she blended in with the male jockeys in their brightly colored silks, white pants and polished black riding boots.

Nine years later, Rosie Napravnik is one of the rising stars in the sport, having long ago discarded her ruse. Now the 26-year-old from New Jersey will try to make history this weekend and become the first woman to ride a Kentucky Derby winner.

She's achieved firsts before. She was the first woman to win the Louisiana Derby, and did it twice. She also was the highest-placing female rider in the Kentucky Derby, finishing fifth last year aboard Mylute. She was the first woman to win a riding title at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans in 2011, with 34 more victories than the runner-up.

She was the first woman to win the Kentucky Oaks, a $1 million race run on Derby eve, and has a strong chance to win it again Friday with early 4-5 favorite Untapable. Her mount in the Derby on Saturday is 20-1 long shot Vicar's In Trouble.

''When I think about the things I've done in my career, it seems like I just started yesterday,'' said Napravnik, a winner in her very first race just days after finishing her junior year in high school.

''I've been in so many different places. I've been so lucky to have ridden some of the horses I've ridden. It keeps building, and getting better and better and better.''

Not much would be better than winning the Derby on her third try.

She's facing a built-in challenge: Vicar's In Trouble drew the dreaded No. 1 spot in the starting gate. With 19 horses on his outside fighting to move inside to save ground, he and Napravnik will be under the gun when the gate springs open.

''He gets out of that gate fast every single time,'' she said. ''If I have to ride somebody out of there, I'm glad it's him.''

Amid the hustle of race week, Napravnik has been doing her homework, using her computer and smart phone to watch replays of previous Derbies. She's been focused on the horse in the No. 1 position. The rail extends into its path, so horse and rider need to be quick to avoid running into it.

Eight horses have won the Derby from the No. 1 post, most recently Ferdinand in 1986. Citation, the 1948 Triple Crown winner, started from there.

''It's probably not as bad as people think it is,'' she said. ''I think I'll be able to get Vicar into good position.''

Vicar's In Trouble is owned by Ken and Sarah Ramsey, a Kentucky-based couple who are among the sport's most successful owners.

''Rosie has ridden him in all of his races,'' Ken Ramsey said. ''She knows what to do.''

Napravnik's riding style can be as fiery as her red hair. After the Derby, she'll serve a four-day suspension for causing the disqualification of Bayern from first to second in last weekend's Derby Trial at Churchill Downs.

Napravnik and Bayern made contact with Embellishing Bob in the final furlong, and his jockey lodged an objection against Napravnik. The stewards agreed and changed the order of finish, elevating Embellishing Bob to first and dropping Bayern to second.

''Sometimes you go over the line, but it's all about getting the nostril in front,'' she said.

Napravnik is a strong finisher, riding hard to the wire without always relying on her whip to urge a horse on. She hones her strength not in the weight room, but on the track exercising horses in the mornings and then riding up to 10 races in the afternoons.

''You have to have the competitive drive to want to get it done,'' she said.

Her eagerness began when Napravnik broke her arm falling off a pony at age 4. Horses have been her whole life, having a father who is a blacksmith and a mother who ran a boarding and training stable.

Napravnik has an extra incentive to win the Derby this year. Her husband, Joe Sharp, is an assistant to Mike Maker, who trains Vicar's In Trouble. Sharp touted the Louisiana-bred colt to his wife of nearly three years early on.

''He's really impressed Joe the whole time,'' said Napravnik, who won her second Louisiana Derby with the colt. ''The story would almost be too good if we won the Kentucky Derby.''

Napravnik enjoys the support of female racing fans, which have hammered down the odds on both of her previous Derby horses through their wagering.

''Sometimes I feel like it puts me up on a pedestal when I don't feel like I should be there,'' she said. ''At the same time, I have learned to embrace it and be the role model that people want me to be. It's kind of inspiring to me that I've inspired other people.''

Napravnik is using her Derby opportunity to do some good.

In her name, Kentucky bourbon maker Wild Turkey is donating $10,000 to Old Friends, a retirement farm for thoroughbreds. Every time someone tweets (hashtag) RideWithRosie to (at) WildTurkey, the distiller will donate $1 to Old Friends, up to $10,000. If Napravnik wins the Derby, the donation will be doubled to $40,000.

It took a while after winning the Oaks for Napravnik to realize what she had done. Winning the Derby would take a lot longer to sink in.

''When you're in the middle of trying to get it accomplished, you're focused,'' she said. ''You don't really know until it happens. Hopefully, I'll find out.''

Kentucky Derby 2014: Who is bred for the distance?

Intense Holiday's pedigree ranks as the best of this Kentucky Derby field by distance capabilities.

No matter their résumé heading into the race, each horse in the Kentucky Derby field will be entering uncharted territory on Saturday when they stretch out to a mile and a quarter.

For most, the Derby’s 10 furlongs will be the longest distance they will ever have to run in competition. Since there is no racetrack performance to base an opinion on, one helpful tool to measure a horse’s distance capability is the average winning distance of the sire’s and dam’s progeny.
While there are always exceptions, the AWD numbers can provide a quick snapshot of a sire’s ability to impart stamina on his progeny or a dam’s capabilities as a producer. For example, if a stallion’s AWD is 7.75 furlongs, then the average distance of a race won by one of his offspring is between 7 1/2 furlongs and one mile. An average foal by that sire should be more likely to handle a route of ground than one by a sire with a lower AWD number.

Taking into account the comparative AWDs of the sires and dams of this year’s Kentucky Derby runners, Grade 2 Risen Star Stakes winner Intense Holiday emerges as the horse that appears the most capable of handling the classic distance from a pedigree standpoint.

Intense Holiday, owned by Starlight Racing, is out of the unplaced Unbridled’s Song mare Intensify, who had the highest AWD number among all the dams in this year’s Kentucky Derby field at 8.25 furlongs. Intense Holiday is Intensify’s lone winner from two foals to race, with wins at a mile and 1 1/16 miles. Those starts create the dam’s high average, which is admittedly somewhat misleading as it is solely based on Intense Holiday’s own race record.

The dark bay or brown colt is by the late Harlan’s Holiday, who ranked sixth among this year’s Derby sires with an AWD of 7.07 furlongs from eight crops of racing age. The offspring most applicable to Triple Crown discussion is Denis of Cork, who finished third in the 2008 Kentucky Derby, then returned to finish second in the Belmont Stakes at 1 1/2 miles.

Intense Holiday is the field’s only starter to have both his sire and dam rank in the top six by average progeny winning distance.
The only other horse to have both sire and dam finish in the top ten among the Derby entrants was Grade 1 Wood Memorial winner Wicked Strong.
The bay colt is by 2007 Kentucky Derby runner-up Hard Spun, who ranks eighth among 2014 Derby sires with an AWD of 6.96 furlongs. His four crops of racing age include Questing, the champion 3-year-old female of 2012, who won that year’s Grade 1, 1 1/4-mile Alabama Stakes by nine lengths.

Owned by Centennial Farms, Wicked Strong is out of the winning Charismatic mare Moyne Abbey, who is the dam of three winners from as many foals to race. She ranks fifth among Derby mares with an AWD number of 7.99 furlongs. Wicked Strong has won both at a mile and 1 1/8 miles, while half-sister Abbey Street, by Street Boss, won her maiden at 1 1/16 miles. Moyne Abbey’s first foal to race, a Fusaichi Pegasus colt, won his maiden going 1,300 meters (about 6 1/2 furlongs) in Korea.

Also of note, this year’s Kentucky Derby field features two sires represented by first-crop runners: 2009 Kentucky Derby runner-up Pioneer of the Nile (AWD of 7.11 furlongs, fifth among Derby sires), who is the sire of Grade 3 Sam F. Davis Stakes winner Vinceremos; and Two Step Salsa (AWD of 6.43 furlongs, 17th), sire of Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes winner Dance With Fate.

This year’s field also has three horses that are the first runners by their dams. Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby winner California Chrome is out of the winning Not For Love mare Love the Chase (AWD of 7.17 furlongs, 12th), while Grade 3 Spiral Stakes runner-up Harry’s Holiday is out of the unraced Orientate mare Daisy Mason (AWD of 6.33 furlongs, 18th). Pablo Del Monte is out of the winning Bring the Heat mare One Hot Wish (AWD of 5.5 furlongs, 20th).

The Derby stallion with the highest AWD number among this year’s field is the late Dynaformer, the sire of Blue Grass Stakes runner-up Medal Count, whose 22 crops of racing age have won at an average distance of 9.13 furlongs. Dynaformer, the sire of 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro, is the field’s only sire with an AWD number over 1 1/8 miles, and he is one of just two in the field with a figure greater than a mile. The other is Giant’s Causeway, sire of Pablo Del Monte, at 8.54 furlongs.

Armadillo: Saturday's List of 13: DDLohaus analyzes the Kentucky Derby

Happy Spring Everyone!

I went through all my data and charts and narrowed my selections to the following four horses…listen, California Chrome checks all the boxes and is a legit favorite but there is no way I will take short odds in this race…with that said I am going to get right to it…

Samraat: Honest horse who really hasn’t done anything wrong; last showed his grit; home track (Aqu) and distance a bit of a question but I think this guy is worth a play…

Wildcat Red: Like his breeding and think he will be OK stretching out; ran second to Constitution who would be a solid contender here; must admit I am puzzled by all the rider changes but I am willing to give him a shot

Chitu: Has been handling the added distance each race without issue and I think he will use his speed to get position and get first run turning for home

Tapiture: Willing to throw out last and just missed against a potential winner (Hopportunity). Has won here before.

The Bets:

$20W Chitu
$15W Samraat
$5 WPS Tapiture/Wildcard Red
$2ExBX Chitu/Samraat/Tapiture/Wildcard Red
$1TriBX Chitu/Samraat/Tapiture/Wildcat Red

Total: $137.00
Good Luck!

Derby scene: California Chrome jogs; countdown begins


Steve Coburn knew when he saw the newborn colt.

“I saw this baby twice,” the co-owner of California Chrome said. “Once in a dream, and then the day after he was born.”

Since the chestnut colt with the white face hit the ground Feb. 18, 2011, the clock has been ticking down to today. Tick-tock.

On Saturday morning, California Chrome went for an easy one-mile jog with exercise rider Willie Delgado aboard, the sun just beginning to brighten the twin spires as they loomed over the Kentucky Derby favorite.

More than three years of planning, now just over 12 hours to post. Tick-tock.

The colt walks back to Barn 20, his home for the last week since arriving with trainer Art Sherman to intense media scrutiny. He disappears into the shed row. He won’t leave the stable area again until just before 6 p.m., when the call comes for the 19 Derby horses to assemble in the chute for the walkover.

Across the way in Barn 38, Tapiture – who was foaled on this date three years ago – pokes his head out of the stall. It’s a quiet morning for stablemate Untapable, walking the shed row, having emerged in good order from her emphatic Kentucky Oaks victory Friday before a near-record crowd of 113,071.

An even bigger gathering is expected today, and the eyes of that crowd and beyond will be on trainer Steve Asmussen, in the wake of allegations by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals that led to his removal from the Hall of Fame ballot, the firing of his top assistant, and a prominent client moving his horses. Asmussen now has a chance to become the first trainer to pull off the Oaks-Derby double since Ben Jones with Real Delight and Hill Gail in 1952.

Over in Barn 41, Ride On Curlin is full of energy, a hand-lettered sign on his stall door warning well-wishers that the colt bites. Earlier this week, trainer Billy Gowan – like Sherman, a Derby first-timer – leaned back in his chair and recalled his first Kentucky Derby memory – watching Secretariat launch his Triple Crown run in 1973.

A moment 41 years in the making comes later today when Gowan tightens the girth on his own Derby colt. Tick-tock.

It’s 8:30 a.m., training hours are over early, and fans are steadily streaming through the gates at Churchill Downs. Many congregating in the paddock area are sporting the colors of their Kentucky Derby selections – purple and green for California Chrome, red and white for Ramsey Farm’s two colts, blue and yellow for Intense Holiday. Women are sporting hats in an array of colors and styles, some matching the theme of their Derby choices.

The crowds gathering won’t have to contend with the breezy, occasionally cloudy conditions that prevailed on Oaks Day. Saturday morning dawned clear, and the weather at post time is expected to be in the 70s and sunny.

The track is fast. The turf is firm. It’s Kentucky Derby Day.

“The Derby is America’s race,” Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens, riding in his second Derby since coming out of retirement, said. “It’s definitely my favorite place in the world.”
