Santa Anita: DQ in fifth


Runner-up Cremedelagold, a 15-1 shot, was disqualified and placed third behind Primed in Friday's fifth race after a bumping incident at the top of the stretch.

Cremedelagold moved out and bumped Primed entering the stretch of the sprint over 5 1-2 furlongs for $10,500 to $12,500 claimers. A few strides later, Cremedelagold appeared to brush Primed in early stretch. Cremedelagold finished a nose in front of Primed, and was 2 1-2 lengths in front of race winner Our Bellini Bikini ($4.60). The stewards took six minutes to reach their decision.

Cremedelagold was ridden by Alonzo Quinonez. Primed was ridden by Victor Espinoza.

Primed was claimed for $12,500 in a three-way shake by trainer Mark Glatt.
