Calder: Another race, another disqualification


Another race and another disqualification after Midnight Serenade was taken down from first and placed off the board for bothering Senor Castrico in late stretch of the eighth race. Although Senor Castrico clearly seemed to be tiring at the time, Midnight Serenade definitely cut off his path and put both horse and jockey in peril and the stewards appeared to make the right call.  Burning Time became the beneficiary of this decision and appropriately so as he may have been best anyway, rallying wide to finish second following a slow start and despite not changing leads at the end.  Burning Time paid $11.00. That makes three take downs on the card including a pair of winners.
