Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we give you some interesting stewards’ rulings.

Sunday was the last day of the meeting at Santa Anita. Thirteen of the 14 Breeders’ Cup races went flawlessly. But it was the 14th, and last, that was still the talk of the industry. There has been a lot of social media chatter as to how fit was Mongolian Groom, the horse that broke down in the Classic. But, there were 30 vets at the track on Friday and Saturday. If there was something obvious it’s hard to imagine it wouldn’t have been caught.

We did a story for web and print on how the Santa Anita fall meeting went and what looks to be in its future. Just click here.

Stewards’ rulings

Advertisement

--Jockey Aaron Gryder is suspended five days (Nov. 8, 9, 10, 14, 15) for careless riding in connection with the fourth race on Oct. 20. Gryder was riding Go Daddy Go when the stewards determined that he altered course without sufficient clearance causing another horse to clip heels and stumble. Go Daddy Go finished in a dead heat for third. Gryder was given five days because it was his third offense in 60 days.

--Jockey Drayden Van Dyke was suspended one additional day (Oct. 26) for riding in a stakes race at Keeneland on Oct. 19 when he was on suspension in California. First Star finished second in the Raven Run Stakes.

--Trainer Oscar Heredia was fined $500 for a late declaration and a medication violation. On June 30, Stay Golden was entered in the sixth race at Los Alamitos. But on June 28, the horse was treated twice with Phenylbutazone within 1 hour and 20 minutes of each other. Apparently, the owner, Robert Olivas, and Heredia, both wanted to treat the horse with their own veterinarian. After the veterinarians discovered the mistake, they reported it to state veterinarian Tim Grande, who recommended the horse be scratched.

--Owner Christian Dickinson was suspended for failing to answer a complaint over allegedly owing veterinarian Dr. Ronald Magrini $669. During the suspension Dickinson is barred from the track and backstretch.

--Owner Randy Rennon, who does business as Summer Knights Stables, was suspended for failing to appear to answer a complaint over allegedly owing Robert K. Mitchell, known as Bonnie Acres Ranch, $985 for unpaid farm bills. The suspension was to start Nov.3.

--Jockey Norberto Arroyo, Jr. was fined $200 for failure to show up to ride Holly Hundy in the Autumn Miss Stakes on Oct. 26 at Santa Anita. Arroyo said he ran out of gas on his way to track. Steward Kim Sawyer voted for no penalty. Kent Desormeaux picked up the mount and Holly Hundy finished ninth.

--Trainer Luis Mendez was fined $500 for a medication violation while trying to remove Lookin for Revenge from the veterinarian list. On Sept. 14 at Los Alamitos the horse tested positive for Betamethasone (82pg/ML), an anti-inflammatory. Mendez said he had his veterinarian administer the drug 16 days before the work and thought that was enough time to clear his system.

Santa Anita review

Closing day was highlighted by the Grade 2 $200,000 Goldikova Stakes for fillies and mares 3 and up going a mile on the turf. No surprise that trainer Neil Drysdale wasn’t only the winner but was first and second. Streak of Luck wen to the lead with Toinette in a comfortable second spot. Around the far turn Toinette took the lead and breezed to the wire to win by 2 ¼ lengths.

Toinette paid $2.80, $2.40 and $2.10. Simply Breathless was second and Richmond Avenue finished third. The win gave jockey Flavien Prat his 21st win of the meeting, tying him with Abel Cedillo for the jockey title.

Here’s what the winning connections had to say.

Neil Drysdale (winning trainer): “She’s had a late year. We discovered she had an infected tooth and we had to remove it. Following that, we discovered she had another pocket of infection and we had to treat that, so we had to take our time with her. She’s come around very nicely and yes, we’re hoping for big things from her next year.”

Flavien Prat (winning jockey): “It didn’t look like there was much speed in the race, so we didn’t want to be too far behind. As you could see, she was very comfortable and she won pretty easy [Sunday]. Yes, I’m glad to hear she’s going to run next year. I think she can be a Grade I mare, no question. I’ve ridden her quite a bit and she’s faced some nice fillies. Neil has her in great shape now and I’m looking forward to riding her in the future. She broke sharp, put herself in the race and she is really easy to ride. She breezed well and gave me a really good kick turning for home.”
