HEY 19

Posted by on 2/19/2014 7:28:30 PM

Steely Dan proved a prophet when they penned ‘Hey 19, no we can’t dance together, no we can’t talk at all, please take me along, when you slide on down’ but Richard Mandella will not be taking along his recent trainee Quiet Force.

The Hall of Fame trainer offered this runner for sale for the first time when he entered the colt in a $25,000 non-winners of 2 claimer on February 13 and he was coveted and online sports betting site players should be aware of runners that are very popular at the claim box.

One of the worst feelings in the world for anybody, human or equine, is to feel under appreciated but that was just not the case for Quiet Force.

A total of 19 claims were put in for this son of Dynaformer and when you look at his pedigree, one can understand why.

His sire could do everything. He won sprinting, he won routing, and he won on turf. He won multiple Grade 2s on way to a near $700,000 bankroll.

Quiet Force’s dam won in her second start at 2 on grass in France. She won several stakes including a Group 3 and earned nearly $450,000.

And if you go deep in Quiet Force’s pedigree one will find Grade 1 winner and millionaire Go Deputy and multiple Grade 1 winner Dare and Go, who earned over $1.6 million and won at the classic distance of a mile and a quarter.

When more than one claim is put in for a horse, there is a shake to see who is awarded the runner. A similar procedure to when they draw the races daily is used to randomly select who wins the horse.

Generally, the numbers will be assigned to each trainer that put in a claim and in the form of a pill or something like a dice and those numbers will go into a tumbler. After the tumbler is shaken and one pill rolls out, the corresponding trainer will win the claim for the horse.

For the record, Jerry Fanning won the claim and Fanning will have to step him up in class as he won the day he was claimed and he did it in fine fashion. And that was by far the most coveted runner at the claim box this meet at Santa Anita but not the first that was highly desired.

Miss Well Molded was entered last month in a $25,000 claimer and 8 claims were put in for her. She was in the barn of Doug O’Neill and Peter Miller won the shake. She has not raced back but has trained well since and will be looking for her 6th win the next time she races.

Burns Turn, a proven winner against $62,500 claimers, was dropped in for $40,000 last month and 7 trainers tried to claim her. John Sadler was her former claimer and again Peter Miller won the claim. She returned on February 1 for $40,000 and had to settle for second after breaking poorly. With a clean start next out, this miss can make amends.

Judge Carr does not have an inferiority complex. He has been claimed the last 5 times he ran and clever trainer Robert Hess claimed her twice.

Five claims were put in for him on January 10 and 2 claims were put in for him the next time he ran. This runner is popular because he brings back a lot of checks and if he ever learns to break sharply, he could move right up the ladder.

It will pay dividends to be aware of how these claimers change barns.
