Los Alamitos stewards have dismissed a case against quarter horse trainer Russell Harris for a positive drug test by one of his horses in November. "Our experts showed that the test could have arisen either through cocaine going through the system or contamination of the sample," said Conrad Klein, Harris' attorney, after the four-day hearing. "We also established: 1) contamination of the jars; and 2) cocaine within the vicinity of where the jars are left.

Quarter horse racing's newest millionaire, Florentine, turned in another championship performance at Los Alamitos on Friday night, breezing to a 3/4-length victory over Brace Your Glass in the $50,000 Anne Burnett Handicap. With all-time leading stakes rider Kenneth Hart aboard, Florentine broke in good fashion from her No. 3 post and widened her margin in effortless style the last sixteenth, covering the 400 yards in a rapid 19.75.

Ron Hansen , the leading rider in Northern California the past year, will ride regularly at the Del Mar meet, agent Wayne Macdonald said. Hansen was the leading rider at the Golden Gate Fields meet that ended in June. He also led the standings at Bay Meadows last winter "We're going to grind it out," MacDonald said.

Two more quarter horse trainers have had their licenses suspended by the Los Alamitos Board of Stewards for alleged horse doping at the track, California Horse Racing Board member Jim Parrish said Thursday. Steve Rothblum and Alvin Caddin were suspended after their horses tested positive for the narcotic, hydromorphone. The Stewards reached their decision Wednesday. Rothblum's Via Beaux was third in a June 27 race. He was suspended for 90 days effective July 10 through Oct.

At the start, trainer Russell Harris said that his "heart was in his throat," and owner Ginger Hyland hoped that it was somebody else's horse. But the stumbler was indeed Florentine, the 6-5 second choice in the $129,500 Breeders Quarter Horse Championship Classic Friday night at Los Alamitos. Despite the scare, Florentine recovered nicely and beat Meddlin Dash by a length to move one race closer to the world championship, which is the breed's equivalent to horse of the year.

Special Shake, ridden by John Creager, upset heavy favorite Runaway Winner Saturday night at the $698,000 Dash For Cash Futurity at the Los Alamitos Race Course in front of 7,133. Special Shake, owned by C.B. and Delellis A. Albrecq of Newhall, Calif., was the second best qualifier (19.90 seconds) to Runaway Winner in a trials race. The 2-year-old quarterhorse trained by Russell Harris, who lost to Runaway Winner twice in the last two months, covered the 400 yards in 19.

The 1985 Los Alamitos Race Course yearbook has it listed as the $100,000 added Sophomore Handicap (Grade 2). However, low wagering revenues at the track caused the purse to be cut $25,000. You would think that turn of events would have resulted in tonight's field being void of a big-name horse. But that isn't the case. The entry of Prissy Fein, a leading candidate for this year's quarter horse world championship, took care of that.

The rematch of Sixy Chick and Artesia in tonight's $50,000-added Dash for Cash Derby at Los Alamitos Race Course may prove to be one of the season's most interesting races. This 440-yard event comes a month after the Lassie Handicap, which saw last year's champion 2-year-old filly, Sixy Chick, finish second to Artesia, a consistent but undistinguished stakes contender, in one of the meeting's biggest upsets. Sixy Chick has a two-race losing streak to Russell Harris-trained horses.
