Santa Anita: DQ in seventh

Email

Star Dance MD was promoted from second to first in Friday's seventh race after Coal Region Kid was ruled to have drifted out and cost Star Dance MD a better placing in deep stretch of the six-furlong sprint for $12,500 claimers.

The stewards conducted a seven-minute inquiry before making their announcement. The margin between the two horses was a nose.

Star Dance MD ($22.40) was the first longshot winner of the day. A 3-year-old colt, Star Dance MD was claimed by Matt Chew. For Friday's race, he was ridden by Hector Berrios for trainer Kathy Walsh.
