Monmouth Stewards Urge Large Fines for Gindi, Navarro
onmouth Park stewards have fined both owner Randal Gindi and trainer Jorge Navarro $5,000 for conduct "extremely detrimental to racing"—behavior documented in a Youtube video—and have requested that the state regulator increase the fine for both men.

The video shows Gindi and Navarro watching a race at the Monmouth sports bar Aug. 4 with Gindi becoming vocal as the race concludes. Gindi said they were watching a horse trained by Navarro's brother, Marcial Navarro, reach the wire first in the final race that day at Gulfstream Park. Gindi yells, "The Juice Man," and later says, "That's the way we do it. We (expletive) everyone."

In the ruling, the stewards levied $5,000 fines for each man—the maximum the stewards can issue in New Jersey—but they recommended the New Jersey Racing Commission increase the fine for Gindi to $20,000 and Navarro to $10,000. NJRC executive director Frank Zanzuccki said the commission will consider the recommendations at its Sept. 20 meeting.

"It's important to address this type of conduct because of the negative effect it has on the entire industry," Zanzuccki said.

Don't really know where to put this, but it's good news!

Announcer Mirahmadi gets clean bill of health
Monmouth Park track announcer Frank Mirahmadi, who has had two surgeries for colon cancer in the past year, aced his latest round of tests at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York, and has been pronounced cancer-free.

Scans and other tests revealed no evidence of the disease. Mirahmadi is scheduled to undergo blood tests in March and have another round of scans in a year.

“I feel good, and obviously relieved,” Mirahmadi said. “The six months of chemo was taxing, but thankfully I was able to handle the side effects and fatigue without missing any work. I have had many people praying for me, and am a big believer in the power of prayer. I hope they will continue because cancer is a vicious disease.”

With the Monmouth meet over, Mirahmadi will be returning to California to call the Golden Gate Fields meet that begins Oct. 19, the day before his 50th birthday.
