Board files complaints against horse owner
ARCADIA, Calif. -- The California Horse Racing Board filed a complaint Monday against Martin Wygod, the owner of Sweet Catomine, alleging he committed conduct detrimental to horse racing for comments he made about the filly's health before and after the Santa Anita Derby.
Sweet Catomine finished fifth as the even-money favorite in the $750,000 race for 3-year-olds on Saturday. She entered having won five straight races and was considered a top contender for next month's Kentucky Derby.
Wygod said afterward that he had been 50-50 to scratch the filly, but he was reluctant to do so because Santa Anita had focused the race's publicity campaign around her. He decided the day before the Derby to run her.
He said Sweet Catomine's final workout April 3 was too fast and she bled. Then, she went into heat three days before the race and was treated with medication.
