Suspension Start: 8/17/2019 Suspension End: 9/16/2019
Ruling Text:
The Board of Stewards scheduled a hearing for Owner/Trainer David Palafox on November 12, 2018, for an alleged violation of providing false and misleading information while under oath to the Board of Stewards in an October 3, 2018 stipulated agreement.
 
 On September 30, 2018, the board summarily suspended Palafox based on findings by the DCI of a capped 18 gauge needle and a 12 ml syringe with 3ml of faint yellowish liquid that was inside the syringe in Palafox’s tack room. The needle was not attached to syringe. Prior to Palafox’s hearing on this matter, Palafox and the Board entered into a stipulated agreement (Ruling 46006) dated October 3, 2018.
 
In reaching the above mentioned stipulated agreement with the Board, Palafox testified that the substance in the syringe, contained medication for his (Palafox’s) ear.  (Stipulated agreement 4).     
 
On October 16, 2018, the Board received a report from Industrial laboratories stating the substance tested in the syringe taken by the DCI from Palafox’s tack room contained Lasix, Methocarbamol and Ketoprofen.  
 
Palafox participated in his hearing via telephone. Palafox’s daughter, Glynis, interpreted and acted as translator for Palafox.  Palafox testified he doesn’t know how the Lasix, Methocarbamol and Ketoprofen got in the syringe.  Palafox testified he believes the only explanation is that his disgruntled groom, Jose Munoz put them (Lasix, Methocarbamol and Ketoprofen) in the syringe.  Palafox further testified that he didn’t want to accuse or blame anyone else, but that is his only explanation.  Palafox further stated he has not been able to locate or contact Munoz.
 
The Board finds owner/Trainer David Palafox provided false and misleading testimony to the Board of Stewards in the above mentioned stipulation agreement.  The yellowish substance in the syringe (Lasix, Methocarbamol and Ketoprofen) was medication commonly used in injecting race horses.  Therefore, for providing the Board with false and misleading information in his stipulated agreement with the Board, Owner/Trainer David Palafox is hereby suspended thirty (30) calendar days which shall be served the first thirty days of Prairie Meadows Live 2019 Quarter Horse Meet.

The Stewards established that urine sample #27980 was taken from the horse “Pure Passion”, owned and trained by Gerald Brooks, following the running of the second race at Timonium Fair on August 26, 2018. The Stewards notified Mr. Brooks that: (1) the presence of methamphetamine and amphetamine in the system of “Pure Passion” at the time the horse ran constituted a violation under COMAR 09.10.03.04 Drug Prohibition - Horses; (2) He had the right to have the split sample tested by an independent laboratory prior to the Stewards conducting a hearing in this matter; and (3) He had the right to be represented by counsel at the hearing.
                    Mr. Brooks did not exercise his right to the split sample testing. (COMAR 09.10.03.09 H 1, 2, & 3)
 
A hearing was held on October 27, 2018. Mr. Brooks waived his right to legal counsel.  Attorney Alan Foreman was in attendance on behalf of the MTHA.
 
Based upon the evidence presented before them, the Stewards find the following:
(1) “Pure Passion” did carry methamphetamine and amphetamine in its system when it finished second in the second race at Timonium Fair on August 26, 2018, a violation under COMAR 09.10.03.04, Section C;
(2) Gerald Brooks, as trainer, was the absolute insurer of, and responsible for, the condition of “Pure Passion” at the time the horse ran (Sections D & F) ;
(3) A horse found to have carried a drug in its body during a race may be disqualified and the purse monies earned by that horse redistributed and                                                                                                                                                                                   
(4)  An individual found to have violated these Regulations may be subject to a fine issued by the Stewards of up to $2,500 and a suspension of any license issued by the Maryland Racing Commission of up to 360 days. COMAR 09.10.03.02, Section A.
                        The Stewards hereby order that:

(2) Michael E. Jones, Jr., as trainer, was the absolute insurer of, and responsible for, the condition of “Worktab” at the time the horse ran (Sections D & F );

Ruling Text:
On September 29, 2018, the Board of Stewards received an Iowa Department of Public Safety DCI Gaming Unit report dated September 29, 2018, stating DCI Agent (S/A) Don Smith met with PMRC security officer Perry Aldrich on the backside.  Aldrich observed S/A Smith conduct a tack room office inspection in barn D-4 operated by Owner/Trainer David Palafox-Meza.  The search, conducted at 12:15 P.M., produced a capped 18 gauge needle, 12 ml syringe with 3ml of a faint yellowish liquid that was inside the syringe that was located on top of a refrigerator behind a bag of cereal. Aldrich observed S/A Smith find the needle, cap, and syringe with a faint yellowish liquid inside of it…
 
Based on the above DCI Report, on September 30, 2018, the Board summarily suspended Owner/Trainer David Palafox’s IRGC Occupational licenses.  
 
Prior to scheduling a hearing for Owner/Trainer David Palafox, the Board of Stewards and Palafox, who chose not to be represented by legal counsel, entered into a stipulated agreement. The parties agree that the violations of Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission (IRGC) rules as outlined below occurred, and the Board notes that this ruling is final agency action regarding this incident and therefore, cannot be appealed.
 
The Board of Stewards and Owner/Trainer David Palafox hereby enter into the following stipulation:
 
    1. The Board of Stewards has full authority to interpret and enforce the rules of racing at Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino as set forth by state statute(s) and the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.
    2. David Palafox acknowledges the DCI report referenced above is accurate and factual in information.
    3. David Palafox has no knowledge of how the needle came to be in his tack room.    
    4. The yellowish liquid mentioned in the DCI report (syringe) is a medication he uses in his (Palafox’s) ear.
    5. He did not, nor did anyone else (other than a veterinarian), administer any drug or medication to any of his horses while they were stabled at Prairie Meadows.
    6. As a result of these violations, Owner/Trainer David Palafox agrees to serve a three month suspension starting September 30, 2018 through December 29, 2018.
    7. David Palafox is subject to a further notification of hearing for additional rule violations pending the results of the laboratory testing of the yellowish substance in the syringe.
This agreement between the Board of Stewards and Owner/Trainer David Palafox will be final agency action regarding this matter and cannot be appealed.
