The California Horse Racing Board has filed a complaint against apprentice jockey Eswan Flores, contending he tested positive for cocaine, according to a statement released by the regulatory agency.
Italian trainer Francesco Santella scored with his first North American starter when Coal Region Kid captured the third race at Hollywood Park Dec. 1.
Eswan Flores, already a winner on Quarter Horses, gets his first Thoroughbred victory July 4 over the Hollywood Park turf course. It was the Mexico native's first ride ever over a grass course.
