Top two disqualified, giving 'Halo' victory

August 25, 1996|By Bob Pickering

A double disqualification scrambled the result of the Bobby Hale Stakes, the opening-day feature yesterday at Timonium Race Course.

Tactical and Time In The Making, the one-two finishers, were taken down and placed sixth and seventh, respectively, for bumping shortly after the gates opened.

The interference resulted in the unseating of jockey Mark Rosenthal from his mount, Papa G. Rosenthal was not hurt.

After reviewing the replay for several minutes, the stewards awarded the winning purse to the original third-place finisher and outsider in the betting, Lay Low Halo. The colt paid $29.60. Citi- sphinx was moved up to second and Gin's Heir to third. The exacta paid $449.40.
