Bejarano Rides Caracortado in Daytona

Caracortado captures the 2010 Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita

Rafael Bejarano and Caracortado will be introduced for the first time Sunday. The meeting will take place in Santa Anita’s walking ring prior to the Daytona Stakes where Bejarano will prepare to climb aboard the 5-year-old gelding for the first time in the Grade III event at about 6 ½ furlongs on turf.


“He’s never been on him,” trainer Mike Machowsky said when asked if the jockey had ever been on the California-bred son of Cat Dreams. “I won’t tell him much. Raffy’s a very smart student of racing.


“Every time I’ve ever ridden him, he’s come to the paddock and pretty much analyzed everything. The Daytona is a very tough race. With me, Mr Gruff and Regally Ready in there, I think we probably have the three best turf sprinters in the country right now.”


Machowsky hopes to have a favorable pace scenario, with Regally Ready and Mr Gruff setting things up for Caracortado’s stretch run.


“Everything’s been perfect (coming into the Daytona),” Machowsky said. “It looks like there’s enough pace in the race, so we’ll just let him settle and kick home.”


The field for the Daytona, race eight on a nine-race card: Calimonco, Mike Smith, 12-1; Mr Gruff, Joel Rosario, 9-5; Victory Pete, Martin Garcia, 15-1; Caracortado, Rafael Bejarano, 5-2; Silver Summation, Garrett Gomez, 15-1; Regally Ready, Corey Nakatani, 8-5; and Al Instante, Kevin Krigger, 12-1.
