Stewards decline to sanction Desormeaux for Saturday ride


DEL MAR, Calif. – Del Mar’s stewards voted not to fine or suspend Hall of Fame jockey Kent Desormeaux for his ride in Saturday’s fourth race aboard the favored What a View, who was caught right on the wire by Professor Berns. To some observers, Desormeaux appeared to stop riding aggressively before the finish and then rose in the saddle as the horses got to the finish.
