Pennsylvania judge stays suspensions of owners, trainers

A Pennsylvania judge has stayed the suspensions of a handful of trainers and owners who were ruled off last year after they failed to comply with broad subpoenas issued by the state racing commission.

Pennsylvania Racing Commission Director Sued Over Suspensions

Was the Pennsylvania Horse Racing Commission “out to lunch” during a hearing last year when they considered whether to quash or modify subpoenas issued to a number of licensed owners and trainers?

Jockeys' Guild Wants Paramedics at Every Track

According to the Jockeys' Guild, Parx Racing did not meet industry standards in terms of the medical personnel it had in place when veteran jockey Jose Luis Flores was involved in a March 19 fall there that claimed his life.

Flores, 57, died March 22 after the accident at Parx when his horse, Love Rules, suffered a catastrophic breakdown. The Guild said the track did not have paramedics in place at the time of the accident; Parx executives declined to comment March 26 on the medical staff in place.

I'm not surprised to read that Flores may have received insufficient emergency medical aid when he was injured. Isn't Parx the track where a horse broke down in a workout, but there was no attending vet on track to quickly attend to the stricken horse? IIRC, she lingered in pain, down on the track, for far too long before a vet could get there. :(

Elliott leaving Parx to help build Caribbean track from ground up

Sunday will be Sam Elliott’s final day as director of racing at Parx. On Tuesday, he will begin a new phase of his career as the chief executive of the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club, an under-construction racetrack scheduled to open in the eastern Caribbean in 2019.

Elliott, who has been at Parx Racing a little more than three years, is taking a leap of faith that the project will succeed. He has yet to visit Saint Lucia, a 35-mile-long island nation northwest of Barbados and south of Martinique that is much closer to Venezuela than the United States.

Pure Sensation seeks Parx Dash hat trick

Pure Sensation will seek to become the second horse in the brief history of the $200,000 Parx Dash (G3) to win the race three consecutive times when the five-furlong turf sprint is renewed Saturday.

Inaugurated in 2011, the Parx Dash was won by the late and beloved Maryland-bred Ben’s Cat from 2012-14. Pure Sensation beat that aging star in the 2016 edition and was a handier winner by 5 3/4 lengths last season.
