Angel Castillo Suspended 30 Days For Not Persevering In Parx Races

Angel Castillo Suspended 30 Days For Not Persevering In Parx Races:
https://www.paulickreport.com/news/t...in-parx-races/

Quote:
The rides in question occurred during the second race on July 31 in which Castillo finished fifth, beaten a half-length for fourth, aboard Ironbound for owner Luis Holanda and trainer Louis Linder Jr. and the second race on Aug. 6 when he finished fourth, beaten a nose for third, aboard Final Blessing for Richard and Yvette Wira and trainer Philip Aristone.

Both horses were claimed from their races.

In Ironbound's race, Equibase chart footnotes state that “Ironbound dueled between foes, was taken back after quarter mile, split rivals into stretch, was not persevered with through deep stretch and was nailed for fourth-place monies.”

Stewards ruled Castillo “failed to put forth every reasonable effort and use proper diligence” aboard Ironbound.

The chart footnotes for Final Blessing state that “Final Blessing fell back after an alert start, raced wide, was unable to threaten top two and he was outfinished for the show spot when his rider stood up before the wire.”

For that ride, stewards said Castillo failed to “ride his mount out to the finish (persevere) and … to use proper diligence” in violation of Pennsylvania code, Title 58, Section 163.238 (A & B).

Stewards said the sanctions, issued Sept. 23, were “based on the video of the races and testimonial evidence presented before the board of stewards and after considering Angel A. Castillo's record of being previously warned and sanctioned numerous times for similar violations.”

Why aren't the punishments for these offenses stronger? Nothing good comes from not persevering with a horse involved in a money/placing finish...nothing. And as we all know...the bad that comes from it could well be very bad. What gives?

30 days is a pretty big penalty,especially when guys get 3 days for the same offense.

I wonder if the Parx stewards are being equally strict with the jockeys shown in the video who were whipping their horses on the head and face?
Haven't heard of any action against them. Where is the outrage against this cruelty?
