Based upon the evidence before them, the Stewards find the following:
(1) “Hill Shadow” did carry an overage of dexamethasone, in its system when it finished second in the third race at Laurel Park on November 30, 2019, a violation under COMAR 09.10.03.04,C;
(2) Robin Graham, as trainer, was the absolute insurer of, and responsible for, the condition of “Hill Shadow” at the time the horse ran (Sections D & F);
Based upon the foregoing, the Stewards hereby order that:
 
 Trainer Robin Graham, be fined in the amount of Five Hundred dollars ($500.).
 
                               A separate hearing was held to address the Multiple Medication Violation Point system.
      Trainer Robin Graham will be assigned one-half (1/2) Multiple Medication Violation Point.

Ruling Text: Having been properly noticed for a formal hearing and having waived that right on December 3, 2019, Trainer Pedro Hernandez-Sandoval (ADG #11080) is hereby fined one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) plus 5% Race Horse Adoption Fund surcharge for a total of one thousand fifty dollars ($1,050.00) and suspended thirty (30) calendar days (December 15, 2019, through January 13, 2019, inclusive) after receipt of a report from Industrial Laboratories indicating that blood sample #E358484, taken from the horse "STRIKE RATE", in the SEVENTH (7th) race at Turf Paradise Race Course on November 11, 2019, was confirmed positive for the presence of the Class III foreign substance CLENBUTEROL at a concentration of approximately 6.73 pg/mL.

This drug calls for a Category B penalty in thoroughbreds as put forth in the Uniform Classification Guidelines for Foreign Substances and Recommended Penalties Model Rule (January, 2019 (V.14.0). A.A.C. R19-120(C)(1) states that if the stewards determine that a licensee has violated this Section, the stewards shall consult the Uniform Classification Guidelines for Foreign Substances and Recommended Penalties Model Rule, both of which are established by the Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI).

The penalty guidelines for a second category B penalty within 365 days call for a minimum penalty of a thirty (30) day suspension and a one thousand dollar ($1,000.00) fine absent mitigating circumstances and a maximum penalty of a sixty (180) day suspension and a two thousand five hundred dollar ($2,500.00) fine with the presence of aggravating factors for the first (2nd) Class B penalty within a 365 day period. This is the second medication violation for Mr. Hernandez-Sandoval within a 365 day period. The board of stewards did not determine any mitigating or aggravating factors in this case.

The fine set forth above must be satisfied within ten days from the date of this order. If it is not paid by December 13, 2019, all licenses held by the respondent are automatically suspended for one hundred and eighty days beginning December 14, 2019, through and inclusive of June 11, 2020, and this matter is referred to the Director of the Arizona Department of Gaming/Racing Division with the recommendation that all licenses remain suspended until all requirements herein are satisfied.

During the term of his suspension Pedro Hernandez-Sandoval is denied access to all grounds under the jurisdiction of the Arizona Department of Gaming/Racing Division.

The horse "STRIKE RATE", in the eighth (8th) race at Turf Paradise Race Course on November 11, 2019, is hereby disqualified and declared unplaced. The revised order of finish is as follows: 1. #6 PLANET NINE 2. #9 DON'T REMEMBER 3. #2 MIDNIGHT MAUI 4. #8 MY WAY OUT 5. #7 ME 6. #4 QUIET BUT DEADLY 7. #3 RUNNING FOR GUS 8. #1 TOP ROCKET UNPLACED #5 STRIKE RATE

The horsemen's bookkeeper is hereby directed to make the necessary changes. This revision of the order of finish does not alter the Pari-Mutuel results of the race in question. The above described matter constitutes a violation in accordance with: A.A.C. R19-2-102(19)(39); A.A.C. R19-2-106(C); A.A.C. R19-2-111(A)(B)(C); A.A.C.

Ruling Text: Having been properly noticed for a formal hearing and having appeared on November 26, 2019, Trainer Pedro Hernandez-Sandoval (ADG #11080) is hereby fined five hundred dollars ($500.00) plus 5% Race Horse Adoption Fund surcharge for a total of five hundred twenty five dollars ($525.00) and suspended fifteen (15) calendar days (November 30, 2019, through December 14, 2019, inclusive) after receipt of a report from Industrial Laboratories indicating that urine sample #E358298, taken from the horse "COCO LOCO MAMA", first place finisher in the eighth (8th) race at Turf Paradise Race Course on October 21, 2019, was confirmed positive for the presence of the Class III foreign substance CLENBUTEROL at a concentration of approximately 344 (+/-20) pg/mL. The threshold for CLENBUTEROL in thoroughbreds is 140 pg/mL in urine.

This drug calls for a Class B penalty in thoroughbreds as put forth in the Uniform Classification Guidelines for Foreign Substances and Recommended Penalties Model Rule (January, 2019 (V.14.0). A.A.C. R19-120(C)(1) states that if the stewards determine that a licensee has violated this Section, the stewards shall consult the Uniform Classification Guidelines for Foreign Substances and Recommended Penalties Model Rule, both of which are established by the Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI). The penalty guidelines call for a minimum penalty of fifteen (15) day suspension and a five hundred dollar ($500.00) fine absent mitigating circumstances and a maximum penalty of a sixty (60) day suspension and a one thousand dollar ($1,000.00) fine with the presence of aggravating factors for the first (1st) Class B penalty within a 365 day period. Mr. Hernandez-Sandoval has not had any medication violations within a 365 day period. The board of stewards did not determine any mitigating or aggravating factors in this case.

The fine set forth above must be satisfied within ten days from the date of this order. If it is not paid by December 6, 2019, all licenses held by the respondent are automatically suspended for one hundred and eighty days beginning December 7, 2019, through and inclusive of June 4, 2020, and this matter is referred to the Director of the Arizona Department of Gaming/Racing Division with the recommendation that all licenses remain suspended until all requirements herein are satisfied.

During the term of his suspension Pedro Hernandez-Sandoval is denied access to all grounds under the jurisdiction of the Arizona Department of Gaming/Racing Division.

The horse "COCO LOCO MAMA", first place finisher of the eighth (8th) race at Turf Paradise Race Course on October 21, 2019, is hereby disqualified and declared unplaced. The revised order of finish is as follows: 1. #2 GOFARGOGO 2. #6 TIZ LUCY 3. #4 I. C. BLUE 4. #7 ZUMBERTA 5. #5 PREFERRED 6. #1 CLASSIC JAZZ UNPLACED #3 COCO LOCO MAMA

The horsemen's bookkeeper is hereby directed to make the necessary changes. This revision of the order of finish does not alter the Pari-Mutuel results of the race in question. The above described matter constitutes a violation in accordance with: A.A.C. R19-2-102(19)(39); A.A.C. R19-2-106(C); A.A.C. R19-2-111(A)(B)(C); A.A.C.

The Stewards established that urine sample #30098 was taken from the horse “Reigning Fire”, owned by Kasey R Racing Stable LLC, Michael R. Day & Final Turn Racing Stable LLC and trained by Michael Moore, following the running of the first race at Laurel Park on June 30, 2019. The Stewards notified Mr. Moore that: (1) the presence of morphine in the system of “Reigning Fire” 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. Moore did exercise his right to the split sample testing. (COMAR 09.10.03.09 H 1, 2, & 3)
Upon receiving conformation from Industrial Laboratories that morphine was present in sample #30098 at a concentration of 114+-6 ng/ml. The Stewards set a hearing regarding this result.
 
A hearing was held on November 3, 2019. Mr. Moore waived his right to legal counsel.
 
Based upon the evidence presented before them, the Stewards find the following:
(1) “Reigning Fire” did carry morphine  in its system when it finished second in the first race at Laurel Park on June 30, 2019, a violation under COMAR 09.10.03.04, Section C;
(2) Michael Moore, as trainer, was the absolute insurer of, and responsible for, the condition of “Reigning Fire” 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:
 
      1.  Because of mitigating circumstances, Trainer Michael Moore not be fined or suspended.
      2.  Mr. Moore will be accessed 2 MMV points
(3)  The horse “Reigning Fire”, be disqualified from the first race on June 30, 2019 at Laurel Park.                    (4)  The Horsemen’s Bookkeeper redistribute all purse monies for that race in accordance

A hearing was telephonically convened on Monday, August 13, 2018 for trainer Santiago Medina regarding allegations set forth in a notice of hearing issued August 6, 2018. After considering all testimony and evidence, the Board of Stewards hereby find the following: Industrial Laboratories reported sample number E234186 taken from the horse “Jennysregalman,” which finished 1st in the 7th race on Sunday, June 3, 2018 did contain Clenbuterol (approximately 2.40 pg/ml) confirmed in serum and Phenylbutazone (approximately 4.23 ug/ml) confirmed in serum, above the legal threshold. Clenbuterol is a class 3 drug carrying a B penalty and Phenylbutazone is a class 4 drug carrying a C penalty. A split sample was sent to Analytical Toxicology Lab, Reynoldsburgh, Ohio, which confirmed the presence of Clenbuterol in serum. Mr. Medina did not send a split sample for the Phenylbutazone. The Board of Stewards concludes that Mr. Medina has violated section 178-1-49.4.a.2 of the Thoroughbred Racing Rule, 178 C.S.R.1. This medication/prohibited substance violation is the permit holders 1st offense in a 365 day period for a medication/substance violation carrying a category (A) and a category (C) penalty. The permit holder has accumulated zero (0) points under the multiple medication violation point system prior to this ruling. The points assessed for this medication/substance violation are two (2) points for the Clenbuterol and one-half (1/2) points for the Phenylbutazone, giving a total of two and one-half (2 1/2) points pursuant to section 178-1-49.3.m of the Thoroughbred Racing Rules. The penalty guidelines set for in table 178-1E of the Thoroughbred Racing Rules provide a minimum penalty of fifteen (15) days suspension and a five hundred dollar ($500.00) fine for the Clenbuterol violation and a two hundred fifty dollar ($250.00) fine for the Phenylbutazone violation. Based on the above, the Board of Stewards hereby fine Mr. Medina seven hundred fifty dollars ($750.00) along with a fifteen (15) day suspension. The suspension shall start on Sunday, August 19, 2018 through and including Sunday, September 2, 2018. The following is the Stewards’ analysis of the mitigating/aggravating factors in this matter:

A.) The permit holder’s past record The permit holder had no positives in the past 4 years B.) The potential of the drug to influence the horse’s racing performance.

Drugs in this class may or may not have an accepted therapeutic use in the horse. Many are drugs that affect the cardiovascular, pulmonary and autonomic nervous system. They all have the potential of affecting the performance of a racehorse.

C.) The legal availability of the drug. Legal by prescription D.) Whether there is reason to believe the permit holder knew of the administration of the drug or intentionally administered the drug.

Trainer says he has knowledge of the drug.

E.) The steps taken by the trainer to safeguard the horse.

Trainer has stalls at the racetrack. No extraordinary measures taken to safeguard the horse.

F.) The probability of environmental contamination or inadvertent exposure due to human drug use.

There is a possibility.

G.) The purse of the race.

$6,300.00

H.) Whether the drug found was one for which the horse was receiving a treatment as documented by the treating veterinarian’s treatment records.

The horse was being treated by a veterinarian for this drug.

I.) Whether there was any suspicious betting pattern in the race.

None

J.) 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.

The trainer administered these drugs.

K.) Other factors deemed relevant by the Stewards.

The trainer has established a very respectful training career.

The horse “Jennysregalman” is disqualified from all purse monies and the purse is to be redistributed as follows: 1st) Merengon 2nd) Pure Trust 3rd) Hundred Across 4th) Go for Four Dude

The horsemen's bookkeeper is requested to make the necessary adjustments.

IN THE MATTER OF OWNER ARMANDO ARREOLA, JR. ID #30151 FOR POSITIVE SAMPLE #NM29577 AND RULING NUMBER 2018-SUN-130 HORSE: “LEONA WHO”

ORDER TO REMAND TO THE BOARD OF STEWARDS

WHEREAS, this matter came before the New Mexico Racing Commission (“Commission”) on November 15, 2018 on review of the Hearing Officer’s Report in the above- captioned matter for a decision pursuant to NMSA 1978, §§ 60-1A-1 through -30 of the Horse Racing Act. The hearing was transcribed by Debra L. Williams of Williams & Associates Reporting, LLC, and the transcripts are in the custody of the New Mexico Racing Commission. A quorum of the Commission, having familiarized itself with the transcript of the October 11, 2018 hearing, and the Hearing Officer’s Report, adopted Hearing Officer Fitzwater’s Findings of Fact as follows:

FINDINGS OF FACT

On October 11, 2018 a hearing was held in this matter before the Honorable Kevin L. Fitzwater on the appeal of owner Armando Arreola. The respondent, through counsel, raised the issue of lack of proper notice for the hearing before the Board of Stewards held February 27, 2018. Hearing Officer Fitzwater determined that proper notice was not provided to Armando Arreola for the February 27, 2018 hearing for the following reasons:

      1. It appears that Owner Armando Arreola filed a change of address with the Racing Commission sometime in February of 2018.

2. Investigator Lease Johnson, Commission Investigator, sent notice of the hearing to an address in Odessa, TX. 3. The Certified Mailing Receipt was returned as undeliverable and unable to forward.

4. The hearing was held in abstention, Owner Armando Arreola failing to respond or appear. 5. Hearing Officer found it likely that the new address was not provided to the Commission Investigator, and therefore, by administrative error, Armando Arreola was not properly noticed.

ORDER

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that this matter be remanded to the Board of Stewards for hearing with proper notice or other proceedings as the Board of Stewards deems proper. 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 writ of certiorari with proof of service, within thirty (30) days of the date of filing of this order. IT IS SO ORDERED.

Ruling Text:
In the matter of the claimed horses “Pete’s Boy” and “One for Don”, both entered in the fourth race at
Laurel Park on March 26, 2014 concerning owner/trainers Claudio Gonzalez and Carlos A. Mancilla:

On March 26, 2014, two claims were made from the fourth race at Laurel Park. “One for Don” owned by Island Wind Racing and trained by Hugh McMahon was claimed by trainer Carlos Mancilla. Also the horse “Pete’s Boy”, owned by Non Stop Stable and trained by Gary Capuano, was claimed by trainer Claudio Gonzalez, who won a public drawing for the horse with John Rigattieri. Shortly thereafter the Stewards were made aware that: (1) the claim slips appeared to be filled out by the same person and (2) Mr. Gonzalez’s stable employees had transported both horses to Mr. Gonzalez’s barn. An investigation was conducted by the Chief Investigator for the MRC.

Both Carlos Mancilla and Claudio Gonzalez were charged with violations under [COMAR 09.10.01.07 Claiming} and {COMAR 09.10.03.03 Prohibited Acts}, and ordered to appear before the Stewards for a hearing.

A hearing was conducted in the Stewards’ Office at Laurel Park on March 27, 2014. Trainers Mancilla and Gonzalez appeared in person. Both waived their right to representation by counsel.

Based upon the statements, evidence and testimony presented at the hearing, the Stewards determined the
following:

        1. On March 26, 2014, trainers Carlos Mancilla and Claudio Gonzalez entered into an agreement whereby they would drop claims for two different horses in the same race.
        2. Trainer Mancilla falsely representing himself as the trainer for the claimant of “One for Don”.
        3. Results of the State Investigator revealed that trainer Mancilla had not taken possession of “One for Don” and that both horses, “One for Don” and “Pete’s Boy”, had been delivered to Claudio Gonzalez where he had taken care and custody of both horses claimed from the fourth race.
        4. Both licensees admitted guilt and violation of Comar Claiming Rules.













Based upon the above, the Stewards hereby find Carlos Mancilla and Claudio Gonzalez in violation of the following regulations: [COMAR 09.10.01.07 Claiming] which states, in pertinent parts: C “For the purposes of claiming, a person may not be named as the trainer of more than one horse in a race, either directly or through another and, [COMAR 09.10.03.03 Prohibited Acts] which states, in pertinent parts: (3) Participating in any improper, corrupt, or fraudulent act or practice in relation to racing.”


Accordingly, the Stewards hereby order that:


        1. The claims of “One for Don” and “Pete’s Boy” out of the fourth race at Laurel Park on March 26, 2014 be voided.
        2. That “One for Don”, be returned to owner Island Wind Racing.
        3. That “Pete’s Boy” be, delivered to new owners Manny Roos and John Rigattieri, who submitted a proper and complete claim slip and were in a public drawing for this horse.
        4. Trainers Claudio Gonzalez 180 Patterson Ave., Shewsbury, PA. 07702, and Carlos Mancilla 9508 Mellow Court, Laurel, MD. 20723, be suspended for a period of 15 days, April 3 through April 17, 2014, and each fined one thousand dollars ($1,000.00)
        5. While this suspension is in effect both Mancilla and Gonzalez are denied the privileges of all grounds under the jurisdiction of the Maryland Racing Commission.

(Note: As per COMAR 09.10.04.05, failure to pay the fine within 48 hours from this notification may result in a suspension of license.)
