Del Mar 10th Declared ‘No Contest’

From DMTC Publicity DEL MAR, Calif. (Aug. 24, 2013) -- Del Mar’s 10th and final race Saturday was declared a “no contest” by its stewards when a horse broke through the gate and triggered a chain-reaction effect by many of the other runners in the 12-horse field. Only quick actions by assistant starters on the gate prevented injury to horses or other starters, all of whom escaped injury in the rare incident.
