Warren Stute, a longtime Southern California trainer who gave Bill Shoemaker a leg up in the Hall of Fame jockey's first $100,000 stakes win, died Thursday. He was 85. Mr. Stute and Shoemaker teamed to win their first $100,000 race in the 1951 Santa Anita Maturity with Great Circle. Mr. Stute owns the distinction of longest time between Kentucky Derby runners. In 1967, he saddled Field Master to a 13th-place finish. Two years ago, Illinois Derby winner Greeley's Galaxy was 11th.
Tishmeister rebounded off a narrow second-place finish in her last start to win the $150,000 Cab Calloway Division of the New York Stallion Series. Twistaway threw jockey John Velazquez and nearly made a complete circuit of the inner turf course before she was contained by an outrider. Velazquez appeared unharmed, and Twistaway was a late scratch. Laurentide Ice was stopped by her jockey and reloaded into the gate. She finished off the board. Tishmeister covered 11/8 miles in 1:50.16, winning by 1-1/2 lengths over Don't Mind Me.
