CHRB: Modern Games Did Not Rear In Gate, Video Evidence Shows

The California Horse Racing Board released the following update Monday afternoon in its ongoing investigation of the events surrounding this year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf: 

Upon review of available videos showing the horses in the gate prior to the start of the race, the CHRB has determined that #1 Modern Games (IRE) did not rear up in the gate, as was initially reported to the CHRB by the veterinarians at the gate. The starter and assistant starter took protective steps by leading the horse out of the front of the gate. The horse did not break through the gate on its own, as was originally thought.

The CHRB is conducting a full investigation of this matter.
