Chrome’s win in the Cal Cup Derby was by 5 ½ lengths.“Going a mile first time, he went very well,” said Hollendorfer, rarely one to head to the Winner’s Circle before the race is official.The California Cup Derby will be run as the fourth of nine races Monday with a 12:30 p.m. first post time.Monday, Presidents’ Day, is Dollar Day. Fans can imbibe on beer and soda for abuck apiece and feast on hot dogs for $2.The field for the Cal Cup Derby: Loud Mouth, Joel Rosario, 8-1; Whooping Jay, Mario Gutierrez, 8-1; Irish Heatwave, Kent Desormeaux, 3-1; Galilean, Flavien Prat, 2-5; and Feeling Strong, Tiago Pereira, 12-1.‘DAVID’ PROVES A GOLIATH WITH ONE-HORSE STABLEDavid Randall accomplished a racing rarity Friday. He ran every horse in his barn and won with all of them.Catch is, the 66-year-old trainer has only one horse, a five-year-old mare he also bred named Kaydetre, who broke her maiden in Friday’s first race, leading throughout the one mile test taken off the turf and run on the main track.A massive overlay at 6-1 on the morning line, Kaydetre won by three-parts of a length under Brice Blanc and paid $50.40 to win, earning a handsome $33,000 for Randall, who also owns the old gray mare, bred in Kentucky by David and his wife, Vida.Randall’s nom de course is Ranch Runners Ltd. Inc., named for the horse transportation company he formerly operated. The horse is named for Golden State Warriors’ superstar Kevin Durant (kay-de-tre), formerly of the Oklahoma Thunder.“We’re big fans,” said Randall, a native of Billings, Montana. “My grandson, Mino Solomon, was in charge of ticket sales for the Oklahoma Thunder and now holds a similar position with the Los Angeles Rams.”Randall, popular with his peers on the backstretch, got his trainer’s license in 1980 after running his horse transportation business for several years. Congratulations were the order of the day Saturday morning after Kaydetre’s victory.“I had one horse before Kaydetre, and that was her sister,” Randall pointed out. “I had one horse before that, and it was her mom. I like having one horse to mess with and enjoy. I don’t want all those headaches.“I had to lay up Kaydetre a couple times because she had some problems, but time is a great friend when you’ve got problems. She gets really game on the front end. That’s where she wants to be and they weren’t going to catch her yesterday.”Though he’s in his comfort zone with numbers now, Randall’s stable could double at any time. “I have a two-year-old out of Kaydetre’s sister, an Arch mare, and she’s back in foal,” Randall said, “but I’m just taking it one at a time with something I can afford.“You get horse-poor and it’s not fun then. You get too many bills. I’ve retired from the vanning business so this is enough.“It’s exciting to win, especially when you’ve bred the horse and bred their mom; it’s a family thing. That’s my joy, breed them and develop them to reach their potential.“I’ve been doing this a lot of years, just enjoying the life at the race track. We’ll give Kaydetre some time, get her feet back under her and let her keep doing what she does.”SINGLE TICKET RAINBOW PICK SIX JACKPOT CARRYOVER OF $148,819.50There is a 20 cent Single Ticket Pick Six Jackpot carryover of $148,819.50 going into Saturday at Santa Anita.A total of 57 horses were entered on the 10-race card and are eligible to run in Saturday’s Rainbow Six sequence, making for average field size of more than nine runners per race.

The turquoise tones of Río Celeste (Spanish for “Blue River”) – one of Costa Rica’s most prominentnatural jewels – “is mostly an optical phenomenon, not a chemical effect in the water,” a research team formed by experts from the University of Costa Rica (UCR) and the National University (UNA) reported this week.For years many have speculated as to the cause of the coloring, and until now the most accepted version was the river’s proximity to Tenorio Volcano, in the northwestern province of Guanacaste, which meant that the turquoise color of the water was due to a high concentration of minerals, particularly copper sulfate, calcium carbonate and sulfur.The new study’s results, disclosed this week, indicate the coloring is not caused by a chemical substance tinting the water, but rather it is a perception created by the scattering of sunlight and reflected by the riverbed.According to researchers, most of the rocks on the river’s bottom are covered by a substance composed of aluminosilicates – a combination of aluminum, silicon and oxygen – that are capable of absorbing all colors, except blue, present in sunlight. The rejected blue rays of sunlight create a visual sensation in the human eye of “blue water.”Río Celeste’s bed is formed by waters from two completely transparent rivers: Quebrada Agría and Buena Vista. At the junction of these two rivers, Río Celeste’s water turns turquoise along its 14 kilometers.During the investigation, UNA and UCR scientists took several samples of water from the two rivers and concluded there is no copper or any other metal dangerous to humans.Instead they found that a combination of other minerals present in both rivers create the layer of aluminosilicates that cover most of the rocks on the riverbed and are responsible for the optical effect.The conclusions of Tico scientists were accepted by the scientific journal “PLOS ONE,” which will publish them soon.Researchers from both universities also are working on a training program for tour guides in the area so they can properly explain to tourists the effect that is created in the human eye by the famous waters of Río Celeste.
