Ken Ramsey, who along with his wife Sarah operate the most successful racing stable in North America this year, says the couple is dropping efforts to have a claim of one of their horses voided.
The suspension of a California Horse Racing Board rule governing statutory "jail-time" in claiming a Thoroughbred racehorse is just the latest development in a bizarre drama surrounding the controversial regulation.
The Claiming Crown is scheduled to return to Canterbury Park in 2004. In five runnings to date of the event, Canterbury has hosted it four times.
An information campaign paid off this year for the Claiming Crown, which lured a record 244 regular nominations, up from 177 in 2000. In addition, there were 36 "open" nominations, up from 33 last year.
