There is no indication that reverse psychology works on a racehorse, at least not like the way it does on, say, a 5-year-old, or a recalcitrant boyfriend.You can stroll past the stall of an unruly colt waving the surgical implements of castration, and he wont bat an eye. Dont eat ? see if I care is rarely deployed as a training tool.After four straight losses as the heavy choice, the 3-year-old Tizbud filly Chao Chum had Gary Stute wishing he had more hair to pull. Her maiden win last July was visually impressive, and her subsequent starts were never embarrassing, with three seconds and a third. But she was burning money like mad. Stute was beginning to wonder if he was seeing things.I even tried training her two different ways for two of her allowance losses, Stute said. I tried old school and then went new school, but it didnt make any difference. I said to hell with it. Id been running her in those allowance races and Cal-bred races thinking she couldnt lose, so I put her in a race I didnt think she could win.The race was last Sundays $100,000 Betty Grable Stakes at Del Mar, a seven-furlong main-track event that looked like a slam dunk for Nick Alexanders Enola Gray. The daughter of Grazen won a similar race at Del Mar last summer by a pole, with a speed figure that caught everyones eye. Accordingly, Enola Gray was held at a dime on the dollar for the Betty Grable.Then horse racing happened, and Chao Chum beat Enola Gray by a conclusive length and a quarter after dogging the choice from the start. Kent Desormeaux rode the winner, after Tiago Pereira had been aboard all six of her previous races.The other kid rode her fine, Stute said. But theres just something about Desormeaux. Hes got those magic hands, and some horses really respond to that magic. Hopefully, shes one of them.Theres something magic about Del Mar, as well, no matter what time of year it opens for business, although the brief fall meet, now in its third season, is still a promotional work in progress, thrashing around between holiday themes and the residue of horse racings show biz glow.Only at Del Mar would there be a race named for Betty Grable, the leggy hoofer, WWII pinup, and wife of bandleader Harry James, whose colt Big Noise won the 1951 Del Mar Futurity under Hall of Famer Ralph Neves. The glamour couple were denizens of the summer seaside meet, when Harry would give his all-star band time off and Betty would dope out the races every day in the clubhouse.Of course, theres nostalgia, then theres ancient history. Del Mars naming committee came closer to this century with the $75,000 Let It Ride Stakes on opening Saturday, conjuring memories of the classic racetrack flick from 1989 that has supplied wiseguys with all the material theyll ever need. The Exchange Rate colt Defiantly won the mile on the grass for owner Mick Ruis and trainer Craig Dollase, with Gary Stevens doing the driving.If nothing else, the fall Del Mar meet gives players on both sides of the rail a chance for a deep breath. With the Breeders Cup at Santa Anita this year, the California season had the feel of coming to a loud and dramatic end, especially after the epic Classic between Arrogate and California Chrome left everyone limp and pleading, No mas.These last two months, split between Del Mar and Los Alamitos, put decent enough purses on the table for those who step up. Trainer Mike Puype, who deserves another headline horse now that two-time Breeders Cup winner Mizdirection is a memory, came on strong with three winners from six starters opening weekend. It was no surprise to see Flavien Prat fast from the gate with four wins, but the pleasant surprise was an opening-day double from Santiago Gonzalez, who was third in the Del Mar summer standings but went cold at Santa Anita in the fall.No one deserved to celebrate more than Stute. The cigar-chomping son and former assistant of perennial Hall of Fame candidate Mel Stute has been through some dry years. By his calculations, the victory of Chao Chum was the trainers first stakes win since the 2010 San Fernando with Papa Clem.I havent had many opportunities, Stute said with a self-effacing burst of his infectious laugh. Between six and eight horses has been my barn the last couple of years. Thats gets old, and it can get you pretty sour. When I became a trainer I didnt think about the part where you had to beg owners for horses.Chao Chum was bred and is owned by a partnership of Thai businessmen whove had horses with Mel Stute in the past. Her Betty Grable victory has Gary Stute thinking he might have a player in the division, with a race like the Grade 1 La Brea Stakes in late December coming into the picture.Going into the race the other day, the La Brea never crossed my mind, Stute said. Shed let me down so much, and I never planned on her running that good. I was getting kind of depressed. Now, Ive got to at least nominate her. She might be as good as I thought she was after all.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- After missing the first six games because of a concussion, Sidney Crosby has a chance to continue one of his most productive starts ever when his Pittsburgh Penguins visit the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night at the Honda Center.Crosby enters the contest with four goals and an assist in three games since returning to the lineup Oct. 25. Three years ago, Crosby collected four goals and three assists in his first three games -- including two goals and an assist in the season opener against the visiting Ducks.Last season, the two-time winner of the Hart Memorial and Art Ross trophies waited until Nov. 25 to score his fourth goal.I know what this means to him, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review regarding Crosbys quick start. Hes a focused guy. Hes a tremendous competitor and I think hes hungry for more.With Crosby on the ice, Pittsburgh won three consecutive games to take over first place in the Metropolitan Division while amassing 12 goals. Before their captains return, the Penguins scored 12 goals in six games while going 3-2-1. Four of Pittsburghs 12 goals since Crosbys arrival came from the power-play unit that includes him.Weve had a lot of movement and that shot mentality, and Sids part of that group, Sullivan told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Hes got great offensive instincts so whether hes beside the net or hes on the half-wall or hes in the slot, hes a dangerous guy, whether hes passing or shooting.Goaltender Matt Murray, who started all but three games in last seasons Stanley Cup playoffs as a rookie, makes his season debut Wednesday night after recovering from a broken hand. Murray suffered the injury while playing for Team North America in the World Cup of Hockey.ddddddddddddDefenseman Kris Letang also returns to the lineup for the first time since Oct. 18, when he sustained an upper-body injury against the Montreal Canadiens.Wednesday nights game begins the Penguins first West Coast trip. Pittsburgh faces the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night and the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.The Ducks are coming off Tuesday nights 4-0 rout of the Los Angeles Kings for their fourth victory in its past six games. Rickard Rakell, a restricted free agent before the season began, had a goal and two assists in his season debut nearly three weeks after signing a six-year contract worth $22.8 million Oct. 14. Rakells earned one assist on the Ducks power play, which converted twice in three opportunities.Rickys going to be a big part of our power play, right wing Jakob Silfverberg told the Orange County Register before the game. Anytime you can get your power play going, it helps the team get momentum and get all sorts of stuff going.Despite their recent success, the Ducks seek improvement. Entering Tuesday nights game against the Kings, Anaheim ranked 17th in the NHL with a 19.4 percent conversion rate on the power play and 25th with just 2.33 goals per game.I still think we have quite a bit of work to do, defenseman Cam Fowler told the Register. Theres little bits and pieces of our game that can certainly improve. I know what this team can do and I dont think weve even scratched the surface yet.
