Fairplex: Stewards put 'Weave' first


POMONA, Calif. - Infinite Faith crossed the wire first by a neck in the $49,500 Phil D. Shepherd Stakes, but stewards disqualified him for interference in deep stretch and awarded victory to favorite Legendary Weave ($6.20). Good Meeting finished third in the 1 1/16-mile race, which was timed in 1:43.06.

Trained by Jack Carava and ridden by Martin Pedroza, Legendary Weave was a beaten horse when Infinite Faith, ridden by Felipe Martinez, bumped him slightly near the wire. Stewards ruled that Infinite Faith "cost Legendary Weave his rightful position."
