Jockey Corey Nakatani's attorney, Donald Calabria, said his client would seek a court stay pending an appeal of a 30-day suspension that was issued Thursday by the three Santa Anita stewards. Nakatani was disciplined after the stewards ruled that he was responsible for an incident in Saturday's sixth race in which his mount bumped another horse, who stumbled and unseated his rider, Javier Santiago. Santiago was not injured. Nakatani's suspension is scheduled to begin Thursday.

Jockey Corey Nakatani, who pushed another rider off his horse after a race Sunday, was suspended for the rest of the Del Mar meet by state stewards Wednesday. The three Del Mar stewards conducted a two-hour hearing earlier in the week into the incident. Altercations between jockeys after a race frequently result in small fines. This suspension, the equivalent of 26 racing days, will start Monday.

With a small army, trainer Bill Mott has done some early damage in his invasion of this track. From his New York base, Mott sent six horses west with assistant Simon Bray, all owned by Allen Paulson, who lives in nearby Rancho Santa Fe. So far, two of the five that have run have won, another (Clure) should have and only one has finished off the board. The sixth, Dowty, is expected to start in the Escondido Handicap on Friday. More importantly, both victories have come in stakes.

If so inclined, a horse player could have about 10 hours' worth of action today at Santa Anita.

Gentlemen defeated his stablemate Siphon by four lengths in June in the Hollywood Gold Cup, but their intra-barn rivalry figures to be closer Saturday in the $1-million Pacific Classic. Many horsemen here even think Siphon will win. Trainer Richard Mandella, who trains the South American imports for different owners, believes Siphon has a better chance Saturday than he did at Hollywood Park, saying he was rusty after a three-month layoff. "He's fitter for this race," Mandella said.
