Borderland Derby results contested


The results of the $100,000 Borderland Derby last month at Sunland Park have been appealed by the connections of Raise the Bridle, who finished first but was disqualified for impeding a rival and placed second. The appeal of the stewards' decision is scheduled to be heard at Thursday's meeting of the New Mexico Racing Commission.

Raise the Bridle races for Buena Suerte Equine and Double Eagle Ranch, the New Mexico-based partnership that owns Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird.

Henry Dominguez trains Raise the Bridle as well as Storming Saint, who was placed first in the Borderland after the disqualification.
