What on earth? What would be the motivation for that? Insurance?

I don't know, but I do know that I'm glad this story is 'supposedly dead horse found alive,' instead of 'supposedly living horse found dead.' :shock:

--Jockey Joel Rosario was fined $1,000 when he failed to show for five mounts on Jan. 19 after he was unable to make it back from Dubai on time. He was scheduled to ride Into Rissa in the first race, Playa Chica in the fourth, Lostintranzlation in the sixth, Nadal in the seventh and Real Master in the eighth.

For me, I think this is a case of complete and utter BS, a case where "government" oversteps their boundaries. The folks involved, owners and trainers, can decide how much to fine Joel on their own by not using him in the future, having a few choice words etc. It's not like he missed his mounts after being spotted in a nightclub at midnight, a little tolerance is a wonderful thing.

Did he contact them and say he couldn't make it back? If he did then there shouldn't be a fine. If he just didn't show up well that's entirely different.

WHY "he was unable to make it back from Dubai on time" interests me. It is an athlete's responsibility to arrange flights in order to be present for all of his/her obligations.
If something happened to the flight schedules that was beyond Joel's ability to control, then IMHO the punishment may be harsh.
If, however, he missed his flight(s) due to his own actions, then maybe $1,000 isn't harsh enough.

California trainer Andrew Lerner reading the latest CHRB report was shocked to see that he had a fatality listed.
Upon further review, turns out it was a 19 year old pony.
Hmmmm.

On an emergency basis, flight plans were changed due to Middle East skirmishes, delaying his flight. Jock agent arranged for a helicopter once he arrived here to get him to the track asap, that didn't work out. They appealed to the stewards, lost the conversation, paid the fine and decided to move on, per Ron Anderson on SoCal morning radio.

I don't fully understand it but it came from a diuretic Tactical Affair got.

I've always found it interesting how the same medications are legal in some states and not in others. I also think its interesting how many articles about medication-based suspensions don't explain why that state or region has outlawed it.

Joe Sharp had 8 disqualified, including a stakes winner, because he used a dewormer his vet supposedly OK'd.

To add to your confusion, let it be known that it's not limited to horse racing.
Did you know you can now get a college degree in Colorado majoring in Cannibus!

Back to horse racing......always been my number one feeling of why a National Czar would never work, individual states have rights and decisions they make on their own without Federal endorsement.

Flavien Prat will ride the highly regarded Kentucky Derby prospect Dennis' Moment when he makes his 3-year-old debut in the Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park on Feb. 29, trainer Dale Romans said Monday.

Regular rider Irad Ortiz will be in Saudi that day.

I read the DRF article and IIRC wasn't the "dewormer" actually an off-label use of whatever medication it was? And it was restricted b/c it can metabolize into a "potent" (from the article) PED?

(It was also stated that none of Sharp's horses actually had any trace of the metabolized substance in any of their results, which is either good or a he-got-lucky-this-time thing. I *want* to believe that it was just a dumb mistake... )

Idol jockey Nanako Fujita fell and broke her left collarbone at Kokura today, will rule her out for a few weeks or so and also obviously won't be riding in Saudi.
