With over 50 years in racing and breeding Thoroughbreds, Jay has worked with, and indeed raised from birth, some top notch racehorses including Dontstop Themusic, Grade I winner of over $960,000, and Mitterand Grade I winner of over $440,000. As breeding manager for the Winick family's Delray Training Center, he worked with several of the industry's top stud farms such as Spendthrift, Gainesway, Darby Dan and the great Calumet Farm.
As a private trainer, Jay has always campaigned a small stable, usually one to three horses. So far in 2020 the stable is 33% in the money with one win and one second in six starts.
Cynci has been a Thoroughbred owner and founding partner in Cutter Nehf Racing Stable. She is a hands on horsewoman who assists in every aspect of the stable operation. Cynci is a practitioner of the Masterson Method of equine massage. She is also the stable's videographer, filming our horses' workouts for evaluation and analsysis. You can see her work in all of our YouTube videos.
A master of caring for racehorses for over 40 years, Luis applies his hard earned expertise untiringly to our horses with his signature quiet and gentle touch. He is a vital connection between our horses and our trainer and rider, providing the intimate observations that only an attentive, hands-on experience can provide.
Hannah has been riding horses for 19 years, She has ridden in Kentucky at Winstar Farm and Keeneland Race Course, in New York at Saratoga, and in California at Delmar and SA. We are lucky to have such a gifted rider who is particularly handy with finicky fillies.
One of the world's great race tracks and frequent host of the Breeders' Cup, Santa Anita is our home base. Located in Arcadia, California, just northeast of Los Angeles, Santa Anita provides excellent year round weather. Santa Anita is the only U.S. race track to provide the latest veterinary diagnostic equipment; nuclear scintigraphy, PET scan and MRI. Santa Anita's management, veterinary community and trainers work closely with the University of California veterinary school in both research and consultation.
You're starting fresh with a young Thoroughbred colt or filly to be purchased at the Fasig Tipton California Fall Yearling Sale, scheduled for Oct. 19, 2020. Our veterinarian, Dr. Sarah Birch, examines the horse, checks x-rays of the limbs, and examines the horse's airway with endospy before approving the purchase. Owners of registered Cal Breds, that's you, are eligible to receive cash bonuses for winning certain races. Our Cal Bred, Lord Admiral, was awarded $17,000.00 in addition to the purse money he won at Del Mar Race Course.
Your horse will turn two years old on Jan. 1, 2021. After February 1st, 2021, two year old horses will be allowed on the track at Santa
Anita Park and yours will ship in to Cutter Nehf Racing Stable's barn. The first races for two year olds are around May 1, 2021. Your off and running!
Run each January at Santa Anita Park, the California Cup races are:
The California Cup Derby: $200,000.00 for 3 y.o. colts 1 1/16 mile dirt
The California Cup Oaks: $200,000.00 for 3 y.o. fillies 1 mile turf
Just as a pro football team drafts the best players, our racing club's first challenge is to snatch the best racing prospect out of the October Fasig Tipton Sale specifically for the Cal Cup Derby or Oaks.
A maiden is a racehorse that has not won a race. So our first challenge is to win a miaden race, and if our horse can win a Maiden Special Weight race, it is good enough to compete for the Cal Cup. Special weight means the racing secretary assigns a certain weight to be carried by all the horses in the race, usually 122 lbs. This type of race is also the highest level of competition for maidens.
Preparation for the Cal Cup Derby or Oaks will depend on the timing between the horse breaking its maiden and race day for the Derby or Oaks. The prep races can be for Cal-breds or they can be unrestricted. There is an extra bonus if the horse wins certain unrestricted races, so we won't rule them out.
If the gods of racing smile upon us, we shall be there at the wire on Cal Cup Day at Santa Anita.
