CHRB Investigators Search Cerin's Stable

A group of California Horse Racing Board investigators made a surprise visit to trainer Vladimir Cerin's Santa Anita barn Friday morning.

The investigators spent more than an hour searching Cerin's barn, leaving with one box that contained several items. They would not comment on the contents of the box. CHRB spokesman Mike Marten, citing the agency's policy, said there would be no comment.

"Usually when something like that happens they send in about five investigators," said one eyewitness, who declined to be identified. "But today there were more than a dozen. I don't know what's going on, but I do know they were serious."

Cerin was not at his barn during the search and unavailable for comment.
