New Jersey Racing Commission Increases Fines For Navarro, Gindi

The New Jersey Racing Commission, following the advice of Monmouth Park stewards, has levied stiff fines on trainer Jorge Navarro and owner Randal Gindi for conduct “extremely detrimental to racing.”

The Daily Racing Form reports that during its regular meeting Sept. 20, the commission voted to increase the fine for Gindi – from the initial amount of $5,000 to $20,000. Navarro’s fine was increased to $10,000, up from $5,000.

The fines come as a result of a video posted on YouTube Aug. 4 which show both men using foul language, etc., while cheering on a horse trained by Navarro’s brother Marcial at Gulfstream Park.

Navarro expressed remorse for his behavior that day, and told the Daily Racing Form, “I embarrassed my family, my fellow trainers, my employees, and the handicappers. Monmouth Park has treated me nothing but fairly, and what I did to them was very bad.

“I promise I will never in my life behave that way again.”

In addition, the Delaware State Racing Commission scratched Navarro-trained horses from races at Delaware Park. The track also has been ordered not to accept any entries from the trainer.
