(1) INQUIRY / OBJECTION – 6TH RACE – NO CHANGE
The inquiry was posted following the race to review observed contact at the 3/16th pole between #3, “RAESBEAUTIFUL HOPE” with rider Leonel Camacho-Flores, the # 6, “STRIDING FOR GOLD” with Tyler Walker up, and #8, “CASA CHUMAREE” ridden by Jake Samuels. Mr. Walker also called an objection into the incident. Films confirm that #8 initiated the exchange by shifting out briefly into the path of a fast closing #3, bumping and causing #3 to check sharply to the outside to avoid heels. In doing so, #3 in turn bumped #6. Since #8 was out finished by both of the others, no disqualification was warranted.
(1) OBJECTION – 4TH RACE – NO CHANGE
Jockey Eduardo Gutierrez-Sosa, aboard the #3 horse “DIVA B GONE” lodged an objection against #5, “SILVIES” ridden by Leonel Camacho-Flores. Sosa alleged interference mid-race due to #5 lugging in and taking his path. The Board disagreed with his assertion. Sosa’s mount was bearing out as well contributing to the incident and always had racing room to the inside of #5, but chose of his own volition to guide his mount to the outside of #5.
(1) INQUIRY / OBJECTION – 3RD RACE – DISQUALIFICATION
The stewards posted the inquiry to review an incident near the 3/16 between the #4 horse “Thisdewarsforyou” ridden by Leonel Camacho-Flores and the #5 horse “Riotuff” with jockey Guillermo Muro. Camacho-Flores also filed an objection. Muro confirmed over the phone he had interfered with Camacho-Flores, stating his horse was a first time starter and ducked from the crop. Films show contact was made twice and that for the better part of 1/16th of mile, “Thisdewarsforyou” was prevented from maintaining the momentum required to hold his position. “Riotuff” finished second but was disqualified and placed behind “Thisdewarsforyou” who finished fourth.
(1) OBJECTION – 2ND RACE – NO CHANGE
Jockey Leonel Camacho-Flores (aboard #3 “Thinkin of Girls”) filed an objection against the #4, “Lil Touch of Dixie”, (with Kassie Guglielmino up), away from the gate. “Lil Touch of Dixie” won the dash while “Thinkin of Girls” finished 2nd. Guglielmino and her mount were held blameless however as they were part of a chain reaction that started due to a collision the first jump out between the #6 and #5. That bump sent the #5 into the #4, who in turn bumped #3.
(2) INQUIRY – 5TH RACE – NON-STARTER DECLARED
#6 “Cat King” was being fractious in the starting gate just prior to the start of the race and unseated jockey Javier Matias. Starter Harold Kent reported he dispatched the field mistakenly thinking the rider had regained his seat and was ready for the start. Having been denied the opportunity for a fair start, the Board of Stewards felt it deserving to the betting public to declare the horse a non-starter and ordered all funds wagered on the horse be refunded.
(3) INQUIRY – 7TH RACE – NO CHANGE
The Board posted the inquiry sign as a result of #6 “Gabe’s Pride” losing his rider, Rocco Bowen, as he left the starting gate. Films show “Gabe’s Pride” had every opportunity for a fair start but failed to capitalize on that having lunged in the air unseating the rider. For that, the stewards ruled the horse be considered a starter.
(1) TRAINER OBJECTION – 2ND RACE – NO CHANGE
Trainer Jacqueline Smith called an objection following the 2nd race claiming interference out of the gate. Her horse “Ginwillmakeusin” with Javier Matias up broke out of the three hole about a half length off of the two horse “Gilly Gone” ridden by Jake Samuels. Samuels mount did break out and make contact, shuffling “Ginwillmakeusin” back. However, Matias failed to make sufficient effort to persevere over the next 3/8 of a mile, with feet forward while yarding back on the reins. Due to those actions the Board was unwilling to award Matias a better placing.
(2) INQUIRY – 6TH RACE – NO CHANGE
The inquiry was posted due a very slow break from the gate by # 6, “Pioneer Charlie” ridden by Leonel Camacho-Flores. Films confirmed the horse was fractious in the gate prior to the break and again at the start when he reared as the doors opened. Since the horse was not prevented a fair start but by his own actions, no action was taken, with the results standing as is.
(1) INQUIRY/OBJECTION – 1ST RACE – DISQUALIFICATION
The Stewards posted the inquiry sign directly following the first race to review an incident at about the 1/16 pole. Also illuminated was the objection sign at the behest of Jockey Kassie Guglielmino. The #5 horse “Head Turnin Okey”, under right handed urging by Jockey Luis Gonzalez, drifted in and ultimately took the path of #1, “Shimmie Horn, ridden by Ms. Guglielmino, costing the latter momentum and the opportunity for a better placing. “Head Turnin Okey” went on to win the race while “Shimmie Horn” finished 5th. For the interference, “Head Turnin Okey” was disqualified and placed 5th behind “Shimmie Horn”.
(1) INQUIRY – 5th RACE – NO CHANGE
The Stewards posted the inquiry sign following the fifth race to review some bumping in the stretch run between the 2 horse “Hawksbury Ridge”, ridden by Kassie Guglielmino, and the 4 horse, “Fastest” with Francisco Lopez up. “Hawksbury Ridge” finished third while “Fastest” finished fourth. Films show that although “Fastest” lost ground due to the first incident inside the 3/16 pole, it was he that under right handed urging drifted in and initiated the contact. The two bumped again at about the 1/8 pole but no action was taken by the Board having ruled there was equal culpability between the parties.
(1) INQUIRY – 8th RACE – NO CHANGE
The Stewards posted the inquiry sign following the eighth race to review the start of #5. “Clemens Brook”, a 3-5 favorite. Films confirm the mare had every opportunity to break with the field but failed to do so due to her own actions. The horse was therefore declared a starter with no wagers refunded.
(1) INQUIRY – 9th RACE – NO CHANGE
The inquiry sign was illuminated due to some bumping early in the stretch run between the 2 horse, ”Kenai King”, and the 4 horse, “Jen’s Jag”, who was fading. Films show the contact was minor between the two and that no horse was compromised the opportunity at a better placing. The order of finish was left as is.
