Statement on behalf of Candy DeBartolo owner of Life At Ten

The following statement was sent to the Paulick Report by David Vance on behalf of Candy DeBartolo:


Kentucky’s Chief State Steward, John Veitch, has elected to make a public announcement saying that our horse, Life At Ten, didn’t need to be scratched from the Breeders Cup Ladies Classic because there was “no overt sign of a physical problem” Moreover, he said the stewards decided not to test her after finishing a quarter of a mile behind a horse she had beaten twice in the last four months because the test barn was too crowded.


On both counts, it appears that Mr. Veitch is in total denial or is attempting to justify the stewards’ failure to adjudicate the case properly. Life At Ten, without equivocation, should have been scratched from the race. What’s more, to ignore testing that type of form reversal in a $2 million race on national television is tantamount to letting a suspected criminal go free because the jail is too crowded.
