BEFORE THE NEW MEXICO STATE RACING COMMISSION
FOR THE STATE OF NEW MEXICO
IN THE MATTER OF RACE APPEAL OF TRAINER JAIME G. ALDAVAZ, SR. (ID#19631), OF THE DOWNS AT ALBUQUERQUE BOARD OF STEWARDS’ DECISION FOR RACE #6 THAT RAN ON AUGUST 29, 2020 AT DOWNS AT ALBUQUERQUE 2021-Comm-6

Respondent.

DECISION AND ORDER

THIS MATTER came before the New Mexico Racing Commission (“Commission”) at its regularly scheduled meeting on January 14, 2021, virtually via Zoom, on the appeal by the trainer for the horse, “Girl With A Plan,” Jaime G. Aldavaz, Sr. (hereinafter “Respondent”). Respondent appeals the decision of the Downs At Albuquerque Board of Stewards' Decision for the 6th race on August 29, 2020, that resulted in “Girl With A Plan” being disqualified from 3rd to last place behind the #6 horse “Jesswhathaveigottado”. A hearing on the merits was held before the Race Review Committee on January 5, 2021, which recommended that the Commission affirm the Stewards’ decision. After reviewing the video replay of the race, the Commission voted unanimously to affirm the recommended decision of the Race Review Committee to affirm the decision of the Stewards. Pursuant to the Horse Racing Act, NMSA 1978, Sections 60-1A-1 through -30, the Commission issues the following:

FINDINGS OF FACT

      1. The Commission's Rules of the Race require that "when the way is clear in a race, a horse may be ridden to any part of the course, but if any horse swerves, or is ridden to either side, so as to interfere with, impede or intimidate any other horse, it is a foul." See 15.2.5.13(E)(3)(a) NMAC.

2. "The offending horse may be disqualified, if in the opinion of the stewards, the foul altered the finish of the race, regardless of whether the foul was accidental, willful or the result of careless riding." 15.2.5.13(E)(3)(b) NMAC.

3. "When the stewards determine that a horse shall be disqualified for interference, they may place the offending horse behind such horse as in their judgment it interfered with, or they may place it last." 15.2.5.13(E)(4)(a) NMAC.

4. Pursuant to 15.2.5.14(D)( l ) NMAC, a written protest may be made to the Stewards within forty-eight (48) hours of the race on the grounds of disqualification of a horse. See also 15.2.5.14(D)(2).

5. Additionally, any person who files a protest and knows the protest to be inaccurate, false, untruthful or frivolous may be subject to a fine of up to $2500, if the Commission determines that the protest is frivolous, unreasonable or unnecessary. See 15.2.5.14(D)(3) and (D)(4) NMAC.

6. Finally, pursuant to the Commission's rule at 16.47.1.8(T) NMAC, a person who holds a license issued by the Commission must be knowledgeable of the Commission's rules and by acceptance of the license, agrees to abide by them.

7. The video replay of the race completely and clearly showed that the #5 horse "Girl With A Plan" broke out, impeded the forward progress of the #6 horse, took its path and caused him to clip heels.

CONCLUSIONS OF LAW

1. The Commission concludes that a preponderance of the evidence shows that the #5 horse broke out impeding the forward progress of the #6 horse, taking his path and causing him to clip heels, which violated l5.2.5. l3(E)(3)(a) NMAC, when he failed to maintain a straight course.

2. The Commission further concludes that the Stewards' decision to disqualify "Girl With A Plan" from 3rd place to last behind the #6 horse in the race is supported by preponderance of the evidence and should be upheld.

3. Finally, the Commission concludes that because the video replay was complete and clear, the filing of the appeal by Mr. Aldavaz was frivolous, unnecessary and unreasonable and Mr. Aldavaz is subject to a fine of $2500.00.

ORDER
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Commission affirms the recommendations of the Race Review Committee to uphold the Stewards’ decisions to disqualify “Girl With A Plan” from 3rd place to last place behind the #6 horse in the 6th race at the Downs At Albuquerque on August 29, 2020. Mr. Aldavaz shall pay a fine of $2500 for filing a frivolous, unnecessary and unreasonable appeal.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, that the final results of the 6th race at Downs at Albuquerque on August 29, 2020 should be as follows:

Place Horse# Horse’s Name 1st 7 Separate Rain 2nd 3 Fireball Flash 3rd 8 Platinumm 4th 1 Rolling Along 5th 9 Little Party Wagon 6th 10 Mr. Eye N the Sky 7th 2 Smith Jerrod 8th 6 Jesswhathaveigottado 9th 5 Girl With a Plan

IS THEREFORE ORDERED, that this Order shall be served upon Respondent in accordance with law. Pursuant to Rule 1-075 NMRA, a person aggrieved by a final decision or order of an agency may appeal the decision to district court by filing in district court a petition for wrot of certiorari with proof of service, within thirty (30) days of the date of filing of this order.

Ruling Text: On March 10, 2020 Mr. Chapman applied for a permit as an exercise rider at the License Clerk’s office in Charles Town without disclosing his 2019 criminal conviction in Ohio. Specifically, on his application, Mr. Chapman falsely answered no to the question: “Have you or your spouse ever been convicted of, or forfeited bail on, any felony or criminal misdemeanor offense? (including DUI or DWI).” Upon information and belief, Mr. Chapman was convicted of a drug-related criminal offense in Ohio in 2019. As a result of Mr. Chapman’s untruthful application, the License Clerk issued a permit in error to Mr. Chapman. Upon subsequent review of the application by the Stewards, Mr. Chapman was contacted by the Stewards and advised that they were aware of the false information contained on the application. Mr. Chapman was advised that the Stewards were rescinding the erroneously issued permit and therefore, denying his application. Mr. Chapman indicated that he intended to provide further information about his criminal offenses to the Stewards for consideration. However, Mr. Chapman failed to follow through and provide any further information. In 2013, Mr. Chapman was granted a conditional permit by order of the West Virginia Racing Commission. Mr. Chapman’s request for a permit was before the West Virginia Racing Commission for consideration because he had a lengthy misdemeanor and felony criminal history, including a 2013 drug-related conviction in Virginia. Included in the conditions set forth in the Commission’s order, Mr. Chapman was obligated to report any offenses he was charged or convicted of to the Charles Town Board of Stewards. Mr. Chapman failed to adhere to this condition. Mr. Chapman was also obligated under the conditional order to refrain from purchasing or possessing any drugs or drug paraphernalia. Mr. Chapman appears to have violated this condition as well. Violation of any conditions established by the Commission in its order was expressly stated to be a basis for revocation of his permit. Based upon the foregoing, the Board of Stewards hereby ORDERS that Mr. Chapman’s permit application is DENIED. You have the right to appeal this ruling to the Racing Commission. Your appeal must be received in the Commission Office within 20 days of your receipt of this ruling and must include a security fee in the amount of Five Hundred ($500.00) Dollars.

Ruling Text: On February 18, 2020, the Board of Stewards offered a hearing to Owner/Trainer, Laura Carson, Permit #26462, DOB 03/23/1990 to which she waived her right to a hearing regarding a medication violation pertaining to his horse “Ghostly Song” who finished first (1st) in the second (2nd) race on Thursday January 30, 2020. The Stewards hereby find the following: The official blood sample #339785, taken on 01/30/20 was reported by Industrial Laboratories, the official testing laboratory, to contain Methocarbamol which is a Class 4 drug, with a C Penalty, designation. The permissible threshold for Methocarbamol is 1 ng/ml in plasma or serum. Sample #339785 contained 12.1 ng/ml of the drug, the measurement uncertainly is +/- 0.2 ng/mL at the 1 ng/mL threshold, which is above the permissible threshold for this drug. The sample was taken from the One (1) horse, “Ghostly Song”, which ran in the 2nd Race on 01/30/20, finishing first. Ms. Carson elected not to have a split sample tested. Pursuant to 178 W. Va. C.S.R. 1, section 24.11.o, The Stewards are authorized to take disciplinary action against a permit holder for violating any provision of the Thoroughbred Racing Rule. Pursuant to section 51.1.a, of the Thoroughbred Racing Rule, 178 W.Va.C.S.R.1: “The trainer is the absolute insurer of and responsible for the condition of the horses he or she enters in an official workout or a race, regardless of the acts of third parties. If testing or analysis of urine, blood or other bodily substances or tissues prove positive showing the presence of any prohibited drug, medication or substance, the trainer of the horse may be fined, suspended, have his or her occupational permit revoked, be prohibited access to all grounds under the jurisdiction of the Racing Commission, or may be otherwise disciplined. In addition, the owner of the horse, the foreman in charge of the horse, the groom, and any other person shown to have had the care, attendance of the horse may be fined, suspended, have his or her occupational permit revoked, be prohibited access to all grounds under the jurisdiction of the Racing Commission, or may be otherwise disciplined.” Pursuant to 178 W. Va. C.S.R. 1, section 49.4.a.2., a finding by a Racing Commission approved laboratory of a prohibited drug, chemical or other substance in a test specimen of a horse is prima facie evidence that the prohibited drug, chemical or other substance was administered to the horse, and in the case of a post-race test, was present in the horse’s body while it was participating. Prohibited substances included controlled therapeutic medications in excess of established threshold concentrations as set forth in the Association of Racing Commissioners International Controlled Therapeutic Medication Schedule, Version 3.2., contained in Table 178-1 F of the Thoroughbred Racing Rule Pursuant to 178 W. Va. C.S.R. 1, Table 178-1 F, the post-race threshold for Methocarbamol is 1 ng/ml in plasma or serum. Because the amount of Methocarbamol in “Ghostly Song” exceeded the acceptable threshold set forth in Table 178-1 F, Ms. Carson may be held responsible and her occupational permit disciplined pursuant to 178 W. Va. C.S.R. 1, sections 49.4.a.2. and 51.1.a. The Methocarbamol positive in “Ghostly Song” is Ms. Carson’s First Offense in this category for a medication/substance violation in a 365 days period. The permit holder has accumulated 0 points under the multiple medication violation point system. Ms. Carson is assessed ½ point for this Methocarbamol medication/substance violation pursuant to section 49.3.m. of 178 of W.Va.C.S.R.1. The Stewards determine the appropriate penalty for the underlying offense on a case by case basis by considering mitigating and aggravating factors. The following is an analysis of the factors set forth in section 49.1 of the Thoroughbred Racing Rule:
  1. (Mitigating) The Permit holder’s past record: The permit holder has no violations in the last 365 days
  2. (Mitigating) The potential of the drug to influence the horse’s racing performance: Pursuant to 178 W. Va. C.S.R. 1, section 49.2.d, Class 4 drugs may influence performance, but generally have a more limited ability to do so. This is a mitigating factor although it is always of concern to the Stewards when a horse tests in excess of a threshold set forth in the Thoroughbred Racing Rule inasmuch as such thresholds are designed to ensure that horses aren’t racing under the effects of the medication, to allow a state veterinarian conducting a pre-race examination to have as clean a look at the horse as is possible to make sure that the horse does not have some condition that would cause it to harm itself if it races, and to ensure the integrity of racing so that horse’s aren’t racing under the effect of a medication that could affect performance.
  3. (Mitigating) The legal availability of the drug: Methocarbamol is legally available.
  4. Whether there is reason to believe the permit holder knew of the administration of the drug or intentional administered the drug: Inasmuch as there was no hearing in this matter it was not established whether or not the permit holder knew of the administration of the drug, or the circumstances under which the drug may have been given. Therefore this factor is not considered in weighing the penalty in this case.
  5. The steps taken by the trainer to safeguard the horse: Inasmuch as there was no hearing in this case it is unknown what efforts the trainer made to ensure that the treatment of the horse with Methocarbamol was done within the withdrawal guidelines and dosing specifications set forth in 178 W. Va. C.S.R. 1, Table 178-1 F, so as to avoid a positive. Therefore this factor is not considered in weighing the penalty in this case.
  6. The probability of environmental contamination exposure due to human use: This factor is not applicable to this case.
  7. The purse of the race: The race in question was a Claiming race with a $12,000 purse. The Stewards place no weight, either aggravating or mitigating, based upon the purse in this case.
  8. Whether the drug found was one for which the horse was receiving as a treatment as documented by the treating veterinarian licensed to practice in West Virginia and holding an occupational permit issued by the Racing Commission: Inasmuch as there was no hearing in this matter it was not established whether or not the horse was being treated by a veterinarian with Methocarbamol. Therefore, this factor is not considered in weighing the penalty in this case.
  9. Whether there was any suspicious betting pattern in the race: There is no evidence of a suspicious betting pattern in this case and therefore, this factor is not considered in weighing the penalty in this case.
  10. Whether the trainer was acting under the advice of a veterinarian licensed to practice in West Virginia and holding an occupational permit issued by the Racing Commission: Inasmuch as there was no hearing in this matter it was not established whether or not the horse was being treated with Methocarbamol by a veterinarian. Therefore, this factor is not considered in weighing the penalty in this case.

Based on the above, the Stewards hereby impose the following penalty for the underlying offense: Ms. Carson’s horse “Ghostly Song” will be disqualified from all purse money and Ms. Carson will have a total of ½ points on her record. With the Methocarbamol positive being the first medication violation in 365 day. Ms. Carson is fined $1000 dollars. The horse “Ghostly Song” is disqualified from all purse money; The distribution is as follows. 1. #3 Shackled 2. #4 Quickhatch 3. #6 Faster Than Chrome 4. #2 Sterling Rebel 5. #5 Rhinestone Cowboy 6. #7 Bedtime for Bonzo

All fines imposed by the Stewards shall be paid to the Racing Commission within Seven (7) days after the ruling is issued, unless otherwise ordered by the Stewards, Per West Virginia Rule of Racing Number 178-1-8.5.n. You have the right to appeal this Ruling to the Racing Commission. Your appeal must be received in the Commission Office within 20 Days of your receipt of this Ruling and must include a security fee in the amount of $500.00
