Golden Gate Fields race declared a 'no contest'


Sunday’s first race at Golden Gate Fields was declared a “no contest” when the starting gate in the one-mile race could not be removed from the track due to an equipment malfunction.

Jockeys were able to pull up their horses with no injuries after outriders and assistant starters ran up the track to the far turn to warn them.

All wagers, with the exceptions of the pick five and pick three, were refunded. In those two races, all bettors were credited with a win in the first leg.
