Racing! Stewards’ rulings are back

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we look at final works before the Kentucky Derby.

Our coverage of the Kentucky Derby is actually starting in today’s print edition and Sunday on the web. You can start by looking at the five story lines to watch from the Derby. Just click here.

Check back at our different platforms during the week until the newsletter resumes on Friday.

Quickly, though, here’s a list of Derby workouts on Sunday, courtesy of Churchill Downs.

--By My Standards: Four furlongs in :48.40 (12th fastest of 76 at the distance). Fractions of :12.40, :24, :36.40, out five furlongs in 1:00.60, six furlongs in 1:12.80 and seven furlongs in 1:26.60.

Stewards rulings

Lots to catch up on, but few more interesting than our review of stewards’ rulings at Santa Anita.

--Jockey Geovanni Franco is fined $100 for using his riding crop four times without giving his mount, Posterize, a chance to respond in the seventh race on March 31. Posterize finished second in the race.

--Trainer Bill Spawr was fined $2,000 after a horse in is care, Matriculate, tested positive for Naproxen, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug used for muscle pain and soft tissue injuries. Matriculate won the second race on Feb. 1. Spawr said he thought the medication was given to the wrong horse since the horse in the stall next to Matriculate was on the medication. It was Spawr’s eight medication violation in the last four years.

--Groom Miguel Rodriguez has been restored in good standing and had his license reinstated. He was suspended on Oct. 20 when he was found to be living in a trailer on the grounds of Del Mar without being on a trainer’s work list.

--Trainer Michael McCarthy was fined $50 after taking a 2-year-old out to the training track before the allotted time on April 3. McCarthy accepted the penalty without dissension.

--Pony rider Roberto Ramos was fined $50 for entering the training track too early on April 4. Outrider Cindy Ellet also issued a violation notice to exercise rider Miguel Rodriguez for entering the training track too early on April 4. Ellet said Rodriguez directly ignored her orders.

--(Note: This involves a horse partly owned by our own Eric Sondheimer.) Agent Derek Lawson was fined $300 for failing to honor a jockey call promised to co-owner Jeff Siegel and horse Brave Helios. Siegel thought that jockey Flavien Prat would ride his horse on April 7 but Prat was rerouted to Feeling Strong for trainer Hector Palma. Lawson agreed that he did not honor the call. Feeling Strong finished seventh and Brave Helios finished ninth with jockey Drayden Van Dyke.

--Trainer Peter Miller was fined $400 for a late registration of Miss Flawless for authorized bleeder medication. Miss Flawless finished seventh in the Providencia Stakes on April 3. It was her first race in North America.

--Jockey Geovanni Franco was suspended for three days (April 14, 19, 20) for failure to keep his horse on a straight path in the stretch and causing interference. In the first race on April 6, Franco’s mount Fool’s Paradise angled in sharply and put pressure on Birdie Golo forcing the horse to bump Pulpit Rider, who had to check sharply. The stewards determined that Franco could have corrected his mount earlier but didn’t do it until after the interference. Fool’s Paradise finished fifth.

--Trainer Mark Glatt was fined $400 for late registration of Zorich taking bleeder medication before the ninth race on April 7. Zorich finished third in the maiden claiming race.

--Jockey Tiago Pereira was fined $100 for using his riding crop more than three times without giving the horse a chance to respond. His horse, The Street Fighter, won the race.

--Trainer Peter Miller was fined $400 for a late scratch of his horse River Echo on April 14. Miller said when he entered the horse he wanted the horse to be ineligible to being claimed. The racing official said Miller did not call for the horse to be ineligible. Because the problem could not be resolved, Miller did not run his horse.

--Jockey Mario Gutierrez was suspended for three days (April 27, 28, May 3) when his appeal of a suspension issued on Nov. 10 at Del Mar was overruled. In the Kathryn Crosby Stakes on Nov. 9, Guiterrez was cited for careless riding after Excellent Sunset in the stretch, causing interference. The horse was placed disqualified to second.

--Jockey Edwin Maldonado was fined $50 for failure to show for a film review on April 20. Maldonado said he forgot and apologized.

--Jockey Franco was suspended an additional day (April 27) for riding at Charles Town Race Track on April 20 while on suspension at Santa Anita.

--Jockey Evin Roman was suspended three days (April 28, May 3, 4) after his horse, Outlaw, was disqualified from first to second in the third race on April 20. The stewards ruled that Roman did not maintain a straight course and interfered.

Santa Anita review

The feature on Sunday was the $100,000 Singletary Stakes for horses going a mile on the turf. Neptune’s Storm switched barns when trainer William Morey was put on the bench while the CHRB investigated charges of milkshaking. Richard Baltas was the beneficiary.

Neptune’s Storm won by three-quarters of a length over Shining Through. Storm paid $6.80, $3.60 and $2.80. Jasikan was third.

“This is a very game horse,” winning jockey Drayden Van Dyke said. “We had [pacesetter] Big Scott Daddy as a target and when we passed him on the far turn, he threw his ears up and waited a little bit on those other horses. When they came to him, he re-broke and really ran hard. He’s a nice horse.”

Baltas recognized his good fortune in getting the horse.

“We got lucky with this horse, he came to us in great shape from Billy [Morey],” Baltas said. “He was a little lazy in his first work, but he’s been training well. I saw this morning that two of the clocking sheets had each given him a B-plus, which I’ve never seen. He doesn’t show off in the morning, but as you saw, he can run.”
