Santa Anita will conduct a hearing on May 2
The California Horse Racing Board filed a complaint against trainer William Morey alleging violation of California Horse Racing Board (CHRB) Rules 1843.5 (i) and 1629 pursuant to Rule 1887. The complaint further alleges that his assistant trainer administered a substance containing an alkalinizing agent via a dose syringe to two horses that were entered to race at Santa Anita Park that same day, March 29, 2019. Based on the information they had at the time, the stewards at Santa Anita scratched all three of the horses entered by Morey to run that afternoon, which has been the only action initiated by the CHRB concerning this matter. The stewards at Santa Anita will conduct a hearing on May 2.
