Ruling Text: Garth Alan Blattner 13821 N. Dekay Road Pocatello, ID 83202

Date: November 18, 2019

Re: Garth Alan Blattner - Violation/Chapter 7 Section 1(viii). Falsifying a license application.

On September 20, 2019, Mr. Blattner was provided a “Notice of Violation”. The notice required Mr. Blattner to notify the Commission no later than October 4, 2019. Upon receiving the appropriate notification from Mr. Blattner and considering the additional information received, the Commission’s Director issues the following warning:

The Commission has the authority to make reasonable rules and regulations for the control, supervision and direction of licensees pursuant to Wyoming Statute § 11-25-104(e). “Falsifying a license application” is a violation of Chapter 7 Section 1(viii). Mr. Blattner did acknowledge the mistake and it was noted that in previous years the ruling was properly noted as required by the WPMC.

Garth Alan Blattner WPMC license No. 19-1055, you shall make note of this and in future submissions to the Wyoming Pari-Mutuel Commission accurately represent yourself when applying for a license.

There are mitigating circumstances; this document is considered a warning letter. Any future violations without mitigating circumstances may result in a formal Commission action filed against you.

Ruling Text: Trainer, Kenneth W. Decker Permit #31114 On November 16, 2019, the Board of Stewards offered a hearing to Trainer, Kenneth W. Decker Permit #31114, DOB 07/14/1958 to which he waived his right to a hearing regarding a medication violation pertaining to his horse “Southern Barbeque” who finished first (1st) in the ninth (9th) race on Friday, November 1, 2019. The Stewards hereby find the following: The official blood sample #339306 taken on 11/01/19 was reported by Industrial Laboratories, the official testing laboratory, to contain Betamethasone which is a Class 4 drug, with a C Penalty, designation. The permissible threshold for Betamethasone is 10 pg/ml in plasma or serum. Sample #339306 contained 57.6 +/- 1.7 pg/ml of the drug, which is above the permissible threshold for this drug. The sample was taken from the Six (6) horse, “Southern Barbeque”, which ran in the 9th Race on 11/01/19, finishing first. Mr. Decker 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 Betamethasone is 10 pg/ml in plasma or serum. Because the amount of Betamethasone in “Southern Barbeque” exceeded the acceptable threshold set forth in Table 178-1 F, Mr. Decker may be held responsible and his occupational permit disciplined pursuant to 178 W. Va. C.S.R. 1, sections 49.4.a.2. and 51.1.a. Mr. Decker is assessed ½ point for this Betamethasone 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 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 horses aren’t racing under the effect of a medication that could affect performance.
  2. (Mitigating) The legal availability of the drug: Betamethasone is legally available.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 Betamethasone 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.
  5. The probability of environmental contamination exposure due to human use: This factor is not applicable to this case.
  6. The purse of the race: The race in question was a Claiming race with a $13,000 purse. The Stewards place no weight, either aggravating or mitigating, based upon the purse in this case.
  7. 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 Betamethasone. Therefore, this factor is not considered in weighing the penalty in this case.
  8. 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.
  9. 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 Betamethasone 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: Mr. Decker’s horse “Southern Barbeque” will be disqualified from all purse money and Mr. Decker will have a total of ½ points on his record. Mr. Decker is also fined $1000 dollars. The horse “Southern Barbeque” is disqualified from all purse money. The distribution is as follows: 1. #4 Envision Success 2. #10 Morning Muse 3. #2 Do Yahwanna Salsa 4. #5 Ice Docket 5. #9 One Proud Wildcat 6. #7 Wilko’s Goldeneye 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.
