Tom Evans, a peripheral figure in the California horse-drugging scandal that led to the recent firing of the state racing board's executive secretary, has said for at least the third time that he was asked by a trainer to travel to Canada to obtain quantities of clenbuterol, a medication that is illegal in the United States. Evans has said that he was fired by the trainer when he refused to make the trip.

Vladimir Cerin was the only trainer with a horse in the $1-million Sempra Energy Hollywood Gold Cup who attended the pre-race party Saturday night at the Beverly Hills Hotel. So one more handicapping angle has surfaced: Bet the trainer who goes to the party. Sunday, Cerin's Early Pioneer--a refugee from the $62,500 claiming ranks--beat favored General Challenge by one length in one of the biggest upsets in the 61 years of the Gold Cup before 29,151 at Hollywood Park.

The California Horse Racing Board, still trying to right the wrongs that emerged from last year's clenbuterol scandal at Santa Anita and Hollywood Park, may be digging a deeper hole. The seven commissioners are expected in the next few days to release a 30-page report, done by the California Department of Justice, that will name the implicated trainers in the horse-drugging controversy.

Trainers Gary Jones and Vladimir Cerin had complaints filed against them by the California Horse Racing Board Sunday after laboratory tests showed that their horses ran with prohibited medications in races at Hollywood Park. Jones' positive was for Made of Jade, who won a race on June 7. The drug was identified as phenylpropanolamine, which was described in the complaint as a decongestant. Cerin saddled horses in six races that tested positive for the stimulant caffeine.

Whether or not Treekster has earned a return trip to Kentucky remains to be seen. Trainer Vladimir Cerin and the colt's owners have a decision to make after Treekster's neck victory over Disposal in the $300,000 California Derby Saturday at Golden Gate Fields. A troubled third in the Jim Beam Stakes at Turfway Park two weeks earlier, the son of Badger Land led every step of the way after breaking from the rail under Gary Boulanger and then held off Disposal.

With the main track reopened as planned, Santa Anita was abuzz Saturday for the first time in three weeks. There were once again horses on the track -- close to 100 worked anywhere from three to six furlongs -- and the usual crowd was back at Clocker's Corner for their morning coffee and breakfast. For some, it was a chance to get caught up with friends they hadn't seen for a while. The new synthetic track has been closed for training since Dec. 4 for repairs to improve a drainage problem.

Spunky Gal and Warren's Whistle, already stakes winners at the meeting, share top weight of 118 pounds in today's $100,000 Las Madrinas Handicap for fillies and mares. A full and very competitive field is set for the 1 1/16-mile race, and a good case can be made for any number of horses. By virtue of the rail draw and her strong score in the E.B. Johnston Stakes on Sept. 15, Spunky Gal may rate a slight edge.

The most prolific has been Kona Queen. The 5-year-old Aloha Prospector mare has won six of 10 starts and has been third in three of her losses. The elder stateswoman of the bunch is Sweetcakesanshakes.
