Horse racing newsletter: Final Del Mar stewards’ rulings
Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter, as we continue to marvel at the full fields at Los Alamitos.
This closes out the Del Mar meeting with two weeks’ worth of stewards’ rulings, based on the minutes filed with the state. Let’s get right to them.
--Jockey Umberto Rispoli was fined $100 for violation of the riding crop rule while aboard Too Much Heaven in the first race on Nov. 15. Rispoli used the crop more than the allowable six times. Too Much Heaven won by a neck. Rispoli did not come for in the hearing but accepted responsibility.
--Apprentice jockey Alexis Centeno withdrew his appeal of a decision on Oct. 4 by Santa Anita stewards for a four-day suspension. He served the penalty on Nov. 26, 27, 28 and 29. The original ruling was for his ride aboard Run Snappy in the seventh race on Oct. 3. The stewards ruled that Centeno allowed his horse to cross over without sufficient clearance causing interference. It was his second careless riding ruling in 60 days causing an extra day of suspension.
--Trainer Blake Heap was fined $100 for failure to properly wear a face covering. Heap said he wasn’t around other licensees, which is why he didn’t have his face covering on correctly. The stewards were not persuaded.
--The connections of Git on Your Pulpit were ordered to forfeit all monies as the result of a second-place finish in the fourth race at Los Alamitos on June 28 after the horse tested positive for a metabolite of acepromazine, commonly used as a sedative. Owners Kathy Walsh and Marietta Gelalich forfeited $3,000. Walsh, also the trainer, has to give back an additional $300 and jockey Geovanni Franco lost $160.00. The horse was also stripped of second and deemed unplaced in the race.
--Jockey Drayden Van Dyke was fined $200 for using his riding crop more than six times while aboard Follow the Lute in the sixth race on Nov. 15. Follow the Lute finished second by 1 ¼ lengths. It was Van Dyke’s second violation in the last 60 days. It was a majority decision as steward Kim Sawyer voted for a $500 fine.
--Jockey Umberto Rispoli was fined $200 for using his riding crop more than two times in succession without allowing his mount Justin’s Quest to respond in the ninth race on Nov. 21. Justin’s Quest finished second by half-a-length. Rispoli agreed he violated the rule. It was his second violation in the last 60 days.
--Jockey Umberto Rispoli was fined $300 for using his riding crop more than six times while aboard Lionite in the third race on Nov. 26. Lionite finished third. Rispoli participated by phone and agreed he violated the rule. It was his third offense in the last 60 days.

--Jockey Flavien Prat was suspended three days (Dec. 4, 5 and 6) for careless riding while aboard Papale in the first race on Nov. 26. The stewards ruled that Prat altered course without sufficient clearance which resulted in Papale’s disqualification from first to second. Prat agreed he made a mistake in making that move. Prat was allowed to ride in designated races on those days.
--Veterinarian Jennifer Finley was fined $100 for failure to properly wear a face covering on Nov. 21. Finley accepted the penalty without dissent.
--Apprentice jockey David Mussad was suspended seven days (Nov. 29 through Dec. 5) for disorderly conduct for harassing exercise rider Hannah Leahey and apprentice jockey Jessica Pyfer during a workout on May 11. In addition, Mussad allegedly damaged Leahey’s car by kicking it on May 16. Leahey and Pyfer participated in the hearing by phone. Mussad must also be evaluated by the Winners Foundation for any anger management issues. Mussad accepted responsibility and the penalty.
--Trainer Bob Baffert was fined $2,500 after his horse Merneith tested positive for a metabolite of Dextromethorphan, a therapeutic often found in cough medicine, on July 25. The case was made that the horse was accidentally exposed to cough medicine by a groom that had the coronavirus. Baffert was cited for violating the trainer’s insurer rule which places responsibility on the trainer regardless of how the violation occurred. No appeal was planned.
--Trainer Val Brinkerhoff was suspended 45 days (Dec. 7, 2020-Jan. 20, 2021) and fined $3,000 after his horse Girl Can Partie tested positive for Metaproterenol, used to aid in breathing, after winning a maiden claiming race on Aug. 1, 2019 at Del Mar. Girl Can Partie was also disqualified from first and is now listed as unplaced. The penalty was more severe because a syringe was found in Brinkerhoff’s truck. The trainer said it was there as a precaution against the horse contracting colic as it was being transported to Emerald Downs. No appeal was planned.
(Note: I wrote a story when the two rulings came down. You can read it, just click here.)
There were two other rulings on Brinkerhoff based on a settlement agreement with the California Horse Racing Board tied to the adjudication of the above penalties.
--Trainer Val Brinkerhoff was issued an official warning when his horse Watch Me Burn tested above the legal limits for testosterone after finishing fifth in the sixth race on Aug. 22, 2019 at Del Mar.
--Trainer Val Brinkerhoff was issued an official warning when his horse Girl Can Partie was above the legal limits for testosterone in an out-of-competition testing on Aug. 18, 2019
--Jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr., is suspended three days (Dec.6, 10 and 11) for his ride aboard Fluffy Socks in the fifth race on Nov. 28 when he altered course without sufficient clearance in the second turn causing interference. It did not result in a change to the placing but the stewards believed Ortiz could have made more of an effort to avoid the interference. The 2-year-old filly won the Jimmy Durante Stakes by half-a-length. Ortiz accepted the penalty.
--Jockey Eswan Flores was suspended for three days (Dec. 6, 10 and 11) and fined $300 for using the riding crop more than twice in a row without allowing his mount, Big Bad Gary, respond in the sixth race on Nov. 28. He finished 11th in the 11-horse race. It was Flores’ fifth violation in the last 60 days.

Los Alamitos review
In Sunday’s feature, the Grade 3 $100,000 Bayakoa Stakes for fillies and mares going 1 1/16 miles, jockey Juan Hernandez got a pretty good pickup mount after Mike Smith was diagnosed with the coronavirus. Proud Emma benefitted from a tiring favorite, Stellar Sound, to win the race by half-a-length.
Stellar Sound was the favorite and broke slow, so jockey Victor Espinoza had to rush her to the front to keep her in the race. But the move might have taken too much out of her as she tired in the stretch. It allowed Message to go to the front and she couldn’t hold off a late-running Proud Emma.
Proud Emma paid $11.20, $3.80 and $2.40. Message was second followed by Stellar Sound, Miss Stormy D, Blue Diva and Donut Girl. Peter Miller was the winning trainer.
Juan Hernandez (winning jockey): “[Trainer] Peter [Miller] told me to just sit behind the speed and she’d give me a strong run. She relaxed perfectly, then really responded when I asked her to get by that other filly.
Tom Kagele (winning owner): “She ran great. We’ve been trying to get a graded stakes with her and she finally did it for us. She likes to sit off it and it set up very nicely for her. We were confident she would come running. She shows up every time, but this was awesome. The plan is to keep her in training in 2021.’’
