DOWN THE STRETCH

• Prince Khalid bin Abdullah, founder of Juddmonte Farms, died Tuesday at age 85, leaving a huge void in the industry. Abdullah, a legendary breeder of thoroughbred race horses, was responsible for such recent equine standouts as Frankel and Enable. His famous green, pink and white silks were carried to victory by other greats like Arrogate and Dancing Brave. His horses won more than 500 stakes races, of which he bred more than 440. Those stakes victories included 118 Grade I winners, of which he bred 102. Abdullah founded Juddmonte in 1980.

• Santa Anita stewards suspended jockeys Umberto Rispoli and Drayden Van Dyke this week for three racing days for riding crop violations. The suspensions follow fines for earlier infractions. Since October, jockeys in California are restricted to using their sticks in an underhand manner and no more than two times in succession without giving a horse a chance to respond. Horses cannot be struck more than six times during a race. Most penalties have been fines, up to a high of $1,000. Both were suspended for their fourth riding crop offense in the past 60 days.
