Santa Anita: DQ in first

Email

The stewards disqualified Manofgold from first and placed him second behind Dave's Ruler ($5) after Friday's first race.

Reacting to an objection by jockey Joel Rosario, who rode Dave's Ruler, the stewards ruled that Manofgold, who was ridden by apprentice jockey Abel Cedillo, drifted out in deep stretch and cost Dave's Ruler "an opportunity for a better placing." The margin between the first two was a head at the end of a one-mile race for $10,000.

Dave's Ruler was favored, and was claimed in a two-way shake by trainer Julio Canani. Dave's Ruler, 4, has won 2 of 11 starts.
