Saratoga: Lots of Stones declared non-starter; refunds given


If you wagered on Lots of Stones in Thursday's eighth race, you will receive a refund.

The stewards declared Lots of Stones a non-starter after they deemed he was compromised at the start of the race. He had his head turned and was still in the hands of the assistant starters when the doors opened.

 All single-race wagers involving Lots of Stones were refunded while multi-race wagers resulted in consolation payouts.

 The race was won by the favorite, Full of Gut, who was 7-5 when he crossed the finish line. However, with Lots of Stones now considered a scratch, Full of Gut went down to 6-5 and returned $4.40.
