Name: ROBERT WILLIAM ROE Ruling Date: 10/23/2020
Jurisdiction: Iowa Racing Commission Facility: Prairie Meadows
Ruling Number: 2020-PRM-68 Ruling Type: Medication/Drug Violation - Animal
Breed: Mixed Division: Horse
Fine Amount: $ 1000 Fine Paid: N
Suspension Start: 10/23/2020 Suspension End: 10/22/2021
Ruling Text: On October 7, 2020, the Board of Stewards received 2 reports from Industrial Laboratories. The first report stated sample #E398797 from #5 “Candy My Boy” who finished second in the ninth race on September 20, 2020 tested positive for Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine in blood and urine. The second sample #E398907 from #2 “Candy My Boy” who finished second in the first race on September 28, 2020, also tested positive for Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine in blood and urine. There is no acceptable level for either substance in a sample.

The Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI) classifies Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine as a Class 1, Penalty A. These are drugs or substances which have no generally accepted medical use in the racing horse, and have a high potential to affect the performance of a racing horse.

Mr. Roe was notified of the test results on October 9, 2020. He signed the Waiver of Split Sample Testing on October 10, 2020.

A hearing was held for Mr. Roe on October 22, 2020 in the Steward Office on the backside of Prairie Meadows. Mr. Roe, along with Mr. Moss (with the Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association) were in attendance. State Steward Tanya Boulmetis was in attendance; State Steward Rick Evans and Association Steward Rick Sackett participated telephonically.

Trainer Roe was fully cooperative during his hearing, and came well prepared. He testified he purchased “Kratom”, which is the substance that caused the positive test, and it is a legal supplement for humans that he took for his personal use. Mr. Roe testified it was a contamination when he accidentally spilled some into a joint supplement he feeds his horse. He did not think he had spilled enough into it that it would affect the horse. He did not speak with his personal Veterinarian, nor the State Veterinarian to get their opinion, nor did he throw out the contaminated joint supplement. During the hearing he acknowledged he should have just thrown the contaminated supplement out.

During his hearing he did not dispute the findings, nor did he deny he has to be penalized. His issue is with the ARCI and says the substance is misclassified, and should not be a Category 1 Penalty A. The ARCI guidelines for a Penalty A are a minimum one-year suspension absent mitigating circumstances. The presence of aggravating factors could be used to impose a maximum of a three-year suspension. A Minimum fine of $10,000 or 10% of total purse (greater of the two) absent mitigating circumstances. The presence of aggravating factors could be used to impose a maximum of $25,000 or 25% of purse (greater of the two). The Trainer may be referred to the Commission for any further action deemed necessary by the Commission.

The Board is considering it to be a single violation, as both tests occurred prior to notifying Mr. Roe. After considering both mitigating and aggravating factors, Mr. Roe is hereby assessed an administrative penalty of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) and is suspended 365 days from October 23, 2020 to October 22, 2021.

“Candy My Boy” is ordered disqualified from Race 9 on September 20, 2020 and from race 1 on September 28, 2020 and all purse monies are to be redistributed accordingly. “Candy My Boy” is placed on the veterinarian’s list for 180 days, and must pass a commission-approved examination before being eligible to run.

Ruling Text: On October 21, 2020 the Board of Stewards conducted a hearing regarding allegations set forth in a notice of hearing issued on October 16, 2020 to Trainer Jack Hurley Permit #36517 DOB 1/29/1997. Mr. Hurley was present in person and testified before the Board of Stewards. Mr. Hurley was not represented by council. The Board of Stewards hereby finds the following: The official sample #E363804 taken on September 17, 2020 was reported by Industrial Laboratories to contain Fentanyl, approx. 23 pg/ml and Eutylone, approx. 66 pg/mL Pursuant to Table 178-1 E of the Thoroughbred Racing Rule, 178 C.S.R. 1, Fentanyl and Eutylone are Class 1 Drugs, carrying a Category A penalty. The sample was taken from “Morality Clause”, which ran in Race 2 on September 17, 2020, finishing First (1st). The horse is trained by Jack Hurley. After notification to Mr. Hurley, he declined split sample testing. Pursuant to section 49.4.a.1. of the Thoroughbred Racing Rule, 178 C.S.R. 1, a finding by a Racing Commission approved laboratory of a prohibited drug, chemical or other substance in a post-race test specimen of a horse is prima facie evidence that the prohibited drug, chemical or other substance was present in the horse’s body while it was participating in a race. Fentanyl and Eutylone, confirmed to be present in “Morality Clause’s” body while it was participating in a race, is a drug or medication for which no acceptable threshold concentration has been established by the West Virginia Racing Commission. Additionally, as the trainer of “Morality Clause” Jack Hurley is the absolute insurer of and responsible for the condition of the horse he entered in the 2nd race at Charles Town ran on September 17, 2020. 178 C.S.R. 1, § 51.1.a. The Board of Stewards concludes that while Mr. Hurley is responsible for the positive in “Morality Clause” under § 51.1.a. and the presence of the drug has been established to have been in the horse during the 2nd race on September 17, 2020 there are substantial mitigating factors which cause the Stewards to impose no penalty against Mr. Hurley’s permit in this matter. Those factors are as follows: Mr. Hurley’s past record as a permit holder is good in that he has one medication violation in this jurisdiction in the past 365 days. The amount of Fentanyl and Eutylone found in the horse is a trace level which lends credibility to the probability that the horse was inadvertently exposed to the drug in some manner. Based upon an evaluation of the evidence, the Stewards conclude that the positive is attributable to inadvertent exposure. A licensee that worked for Jack Hurley, who had contact with “Morality Clause” for hours leading up to the race refused a drug test for Fentanyl. He has since been suspended. There is no reason to believe that Mr. Hurley knew of or caused the drug to be administered to the horse. 178 C.S.R. 1, §49.10.a, the Stewards are explicitly authorized to consider inadvertent exposure as a factor in determining medication violations. Further, pursuant to §49.1., the Stewards are to determine medication violations on a case by case basis and may determine to impose no penalty against a trainer’s permit, if warranted. Weighing and balancing these factors, the Board of Stewards find that while Mr. Hurley is held responsible for the positive in this case, the Stewards shall impose no penalty against Mr. Hurley’s permit. Therefore, the standard penalty for a first offense Class A medication violation (1 year suspension/$10,000.00 fine) is not imposed in this matter. In addition, the Stewards do not impose the 6 Multiple Medication Violation points that would typically be imposed under § 49.3.m. of the Thoroughbred Racing Rule. Because “Morality Clause” was found to have carried Fentanyl and Eutylone in its system during the running of the race, the purse of the race is ordered to be FORFEITED and “Morality Clause” is DISQUALIFIED from its (1st) first place finish in second (2nd) race on September 17, 2020. This disqualification is justified due to the irrefutable drug positive, even though Mr. Hurley’s permit was not disciplined in this matter. Although it is likely that the horse carried the drug in its system due to inadvertent exposure, it nonetheless carried the drug in its system which necessitates the disqualification to ensure the integrity of racing and to instill confidence in the betting public. The order of finish is hereby re-ordered as follows: 1. #7 Trinni Sunset 2. #8 Unexpectedly 3. #9 I Am Aine 4. #3 Rumourist 5. #2 Anshi 6. #1 Flicker’s Princess

Ruling Text: On October 21, 2020 the Board of Stewards conducted a hearing regarding allegations set forth in a notice of hearing issued on October 16, 2020 to Trainer Timothy C. Kreiser Permit #34416 DOB 10/23/1963. Mr. Kreiser was present over the phone and testified before the Board of Stewards. Mr. Kreiser was not represented by council. The Board of Stewards hereby finds the following: The official sample #E363807 taken on September 17, 2020 was reported by Industrial Laboratories to contain Fentanyl, approx. 6 pg/ml and Eutylone, approx. 27 pg/mL Pursuant to Table 178-1 E of the Thoroughbred Racing Rule, 178 C.S.R. 1, Fentanyl and Eutylone are Class 1 Drugs, carrying a Category A penalty. The sample was taken from “Take Me Home”, which ran in Race 4 on September 17, 2020, finishing First (1st). The horse is trained by Timothy C. Kreiser. After notification to Mr. Kreiser, he declined split sample testing. Pursuant to section 49.4.a.1. of the Thoroughbred Racing Rule, 178 C.S.R. 1, a finding by a Racing Commission approved laboratory of a prohibited drug, chemical or other substance in a post-race test specimen of a horse is prima facie evidence that the prohibited drug, chemical or other substance was present in the horse’s body while it was participating in a race. Fentanyl and Eutylone, confirmed to be present in “Take Me Home’s” body while it was participating in a race, is a drug or medication for which no acceptable threshold concentration has been established by the West Virginia Racing Commission. Additionally, as the trainer of “Take Me Home” Timothy C. Kreiser is the absolute insurer of and responsible for the condition of the horse he entered in the 4th race at Charles Town ran on September 17, 2020. 178 C.S.R. 1, § 51.1.a. The Board of Stewards concludes that while Mr. Kreiser is responsible for the positive in “Take Me Home” under § 51.1.a. and the presence of the drug has been established to have been in the horse during the 4th race on September 17, 2020 there are substantial mitigating factors which cause the Stewards to impose no penalty against Mr. Kreiser’s permit in this matter. Those factors are as follows: Mr. Kreiser’s past record as a permit holder is good in that he has no medication violations in any jurisdiction since April 2010. The amount of Fentanyl and Eutylone found in the horse is a trace level which lends credibility to the probability that the horse was inadvertently exposed to the drug in some manner. Based upon an evaluation of the evidence, the Stewards conclude that the positive is attributable to inadvertent exposure. Because of PNGI Covid 19 protocols Mr. Kreiser could not enter the backside so “Take Me Home” ran out of the barn of Jack Hurley. Mr. Kreiser and Mr. Hurley were not acquaintances but were brought together by a mutual owner. A licensee that worked for Jack Hurley, who had contact with “Take Me Home” for hours leading up to the race refused a drug test for Fentanyl. He has since been suspended. There is no reason to believe that Mr. Kreiser knew of or caused the drug to be administered to the horse. 178 C.S.R. 1, §49.10.a, the Stewards are explicitly authorized to consider inadvertent exposure as a factor in determining medication violations.

This disqualification is justified due to the irrefutable drug positive, even though Mr. Kreiser’s permit was not disciplined in this matter. Although it is likely that the horse carried the drug in its system due to inadvertent exposure, it nonetheless carried the drug in its system which necessitates the disqualification to ensure the integrity of racing and to instill confidence in the betting public.

Ruling Text: On October 10, 2020 the Board of Stewards offered a hearing to Trainer, Jack Hurley, Permit #36517, DOB 01/29/1997 to which he waived his right to a hearing regarding a medication violation pertaining to his horse “Merry Merry Mojo” who finished fourth (4th) in the third (3rd) race on Thursday, September 10, 2020. The Stewards hereby find the following: The official blood sample E363772 taken on 9/10/20 was reported by Industrial Laboratories, the official testing laboratory, to contain Methylprednisolone which is a Class 4 drug, with a C Penalty, designation. The permissible threshold for Methylprednisolone is 100 pg/ml in plasma or serum. Sample E363772 contained 393 pg/ml of the drug, which is above the permissible threshold for this drug. The sample was taken from the Five (5) horse, “Merry Merry Mojo”, which ran in the Third (3rd) Race on 9/10/20 finishing Fourth. Mr. Hurley 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 Methylprednisolone is 100 pg/ml in plasma or serum. Because the amount of Methylprednisolone, ”Merry Merry Mojo” exceeded the acceptable threshold set forth in Table 178-1 F, Mr. Hurley 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. The Methylprednisolone positive in “Merry Merry Mojo” is Mr. Hurley’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. Mr. Hurley is assessed ½ point for this Methylprednisolone 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: Methylprednisolone 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 Methylprednisolone 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 $5000.00 claiming race with a $10,000 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 Methylprednisolone. 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 Methylprednisolone 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. Hurley’s horse “Merry Merry Mojo” will be disqualified from all purse money and Mr. Hurley will have a total of ½ points on his record. With the Methylprednisolone positive being the first medication violation in 365 days. Mr. Hurley is fined $1000 dollars. The horse “Merry Merry Mojo” is disqualified from all purse money; The distribution is as follows. 1. #2 Frathouse Music 2. #3 Top Hat Scrutiny 3. #1 Samadi Blue 4. #8 Castlefinn 5. #7 Just a Lil Lukey 6. #6 Man of Chrome

STATE OF NEW MEXICO BEFORE THE NEW MEXICO RACING COMMISSION

IN THE MATTER OF: TRAINER JUAN D. TORRES #29080 FOR POSITIVE SAMPLE #NM20540 HORSE "CARTEL POWER" 2019-Comm-6

DECISION AND ORDER

THIS MATTER came before the New Mexico Racing Commission (“Commission”) at its regularly scheduled meeting on March 21, 2019, on review of the Hearing Officer’s Report, Proposed Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, Recommended Penalties in the above-captioned matter. A hearing on the merits was held on September 5, 2018, before Hearing Officer Felicia Orth, Esq., appointed by the Commission to act as the Hearing Officer in this matter. The hearing was audio-recorded in three parts by Commission paralegal Tina Arce and is in the custody of the Racing Commission. The administrative prosecutor for the New Mexico Racing Commission was Jose Puentes, Esq. The Respondent was represented by Daniel Marquez, Esq. Pursuant to NMSA 1978, §§ 60-1A-1 through -30 of the Horse Racing Act, having familiarized itself with the recording of the September 5, 2018 hearing, the Hearing Officer’s Report, and the exhibits admitted into evidence, and with an additional finding that two beta-agonists equates to aggravating circumstances, the Commission the Commission hereby rejects the hearing officers recommendations and adopts the following Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law:

FINDINGS OF FACT 1.) On August 13, 2016, the horse "Cartel Power" raced in the sixth (6th) race at the Downs at Albuquerque Racetrack located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, finishing the race in first (1st) place. [Exh. 1; Testimony of Investigator Johnson RPT Part II Min. 29-31]. 2.) On August 13, 2016, Licensee Juan D. Torres was the trainer of the horse “Cartel Power” at the time of the 6th race at the Downs at Albuquerque Race Track. [Id.]. 3.) On August 13, 2016, Mr. Juan Esquivel Jr. was the owner of the horse “Cartel Power” at the time of the 6th race at the Downs at Albuquerque Race Track. [Id.]. 4.) Upon completing the 6th race at the Downs at Albuquerque Racetrack, “Cartel Power” was designated by the racetrack Board of Stewards, 15.2.6.10(A)(l), to have urine sample taken at the Downs at Albuquerque Racetrack test barn. [Exh. 7; Testimony of Dr. England RPT Part II Min. 10-12]. 5.) Samples of urine were extracted from “Cartel Power” in the test barn at Downs at Albuquerque Racetrack following the 6th race at Downs at Albuquerque Racetrack on August 13, 2016. The horse sample was assigned the unique identifying code of NM20540. [Exh. 7; Testimony of Dr. England RPT Part II Min. 10-15]. 6.) The testing of “Cartel Power” was conducted in conformity with established procedures and supervised by official Commission test barn veterinarian Dr. England. [Exh. 7; Testimony of Dr. England RPT Part II Min. 10-17]. 7.) The taking, packaging and sealing of the samples was witnessed at all times by a representative of Trainer Juan D. Torres and supervised by Dr. England. [Exh. 7; Testimony of Dr. England RPT Part II Min. 22). 8.) After being sealed in the presence of Trainer Torres' witness, the sample was stored in a locked cooler, which was itself stored in a locked freezer, which was contained within a locked office, which was contained within the secure test barn. The samples remained securely stored until shipped in the same locked cooler to the testing facility in Davis, California. [Exh. 7; Testimony of Dr. England RPT Part II Min. 13-17]. 9.) The integrity of the chain of custody was maintained at all times during the period where the sample was under control of the test barn. [Id.]. 10.) No irregularities of any consequence were present with respect to the taking or handling of the samples. [Id.]. 11.) The urine sample was shipped via Federal Express bonded courier to the Commission­ approved testing facility known as the Equine Analytical Chemistry Laboratory at the University of California, Davis. [Exh. 7; Testimony of Dr. England RPT Part II Min.13-17]. 12.) Upon receipt, the Laboratory undertook to test urine sample NM20540. [Id.]. 13.) Employing established procedures and protocols, the Laboratory screened urine sample for the presence of drugs utilizing the method of liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry. [Exh. 8-9; Testimony of Dr. Stanley RPT Part III Min. 5-7]. 14.) The Laboratory divided the sample into two subparts called aliquots, conducting independent testing of two aliquots. [Exh. 8-9; Testimony of Dr. Stanley RPT Part III Min. 5-8, 10-11]. 15.) The Laboratory identified the presence of Zilpaterol and Clenbuterol in both subparts of sample NM20540. [Id.]. 16.) The result of the testing of the urine in sample NM20540 revealed a presence of Zilpaterol and Clenbuterol. [Id.]. 17.) On August 13, 2016, and at all times relevant to this proceeding, a valid Commission policy was in place that banned absolutely the presence of the drug Zilpaterol and the drug Clenbuterol in race horses. [Exh. 8-9; Testimony of Dr. Stanley RPT Part III Min. 11-12]. 18.) The Commission finds that detection of two beta-agonists simultaneously in the system of the horse is an aggravating factor due to the increased risk that the presence of two beta-agonists presents to the health and safety of the horse.
CONCLUSIONS OF LAW A.) These proceedings are governed by the Horse Racing Act, NMSA 1978, Sections 60-lA-1 through -30 (the "Act"), and the New Mexico Administrative Code provisions promulgated by the Commission pursuant to the Act (collectively, the "Commission Rules" or individually, a "Commission Rule"), 15.2.1through 15.2.7 and 16.47.1 NMAC. B.) The Commission is authorized to undertake discipline against persons licensed pursuant to the Act. NMSA 1978, § 60-lA-4,-5, -11; 16.47.1 NMAC. C.) The Horse Racing Act requires that the rules of the Commission be construed "to ensure that horse racing in New Mexico is conducted with fairness and that the participants and patrons are protected against illegal practices on the racing grounds." D.) The Commission rules are intended "to protect the integrity of horse racing, to ensure the health and welfare of race horses and to safeguard the interests of the public and the participants in racing." § 15.2.6.6 NMAC. E.) The Legislature has "confer[red] broad powers upon the Commission in order to properly protect the public safety, morals and general welfare in an area of activity wherein potentially dishonest practices and other evils often arise, unless the activity is carefully regulated and controlled." Jamison v. State Racing Comm'n, 1973-NMSC-028, 11 7, 84 N.M. 679. F.) The Act and the Commission Rules authorize the Commission to discipline licensees found in violation of the Act or Rules. § 60-lA-5; 16.47.1.8 NMAC. Disciplinary measures available to the Commission include the revocation, denial or suspension of a license, or the imposition of civil monetary fines up to $100,000 per violation. § 60-lA-5. G.) As set forth therein, the Act and the Commission Rules prohibit certain substances, medications, drugs, and chemicals from being present in race horses ("Prohibited Substance[s]"). §§ 60-la-4,-5, -11,-28; 15.2.6.9 NMAC. H.) Under Commission Rule 15.2.6.9(0) NMAC, Prohibited Substances include: [D]rugs or medications for which no acceptable levels have been established; therapeutic medications in excess of established acceptable levels; substances present in the horse in excess of levels at which such substances could occur naturally; substances foreign to a horse at levels that cause interference with testing procedures. I.) The Commission has not established an acceptable level at which Zilpaterol or Clenbuterol may be present in race horses, thus the presence of any concentration of the substance is a per se violation of Commission Rules and the Act. §15.2.6.9 NMAC. J.) The presence of Zilpaterol and Clenbuterol detected in sample NM20540 from “Cartel Power” was in violation of the Commission Rules. [Id.] K.) Under the Commission Rules, see 15.2.6.9(A), drugs, chemicals, medications, and substances are segregated into four classifications as set forth by the Association of Racing Commissioners International in the Uniform Classification Guidelines for Foreign Substances Version 5.00 (the "RCI Guidelines"), which classifications are based in part on the therapeutic value of the substance. See RCI Guidelines at ii. L.) Zilpaterol is classified under this scheme as a Class 2 substance subject to a Category A penalty. See Id. at 3. Most Class 2 substances "are generally not accepted as therapeutic agents in the race horse." In addition, Class 2 substances "have a high potential for affecting the outcome of a race." [Id.] M.) Clenbuterol is classified under this scheme as a Class 3 substance subject to a Category B penalty. See Id. at 11. Class 3 substances "may or may not have an accepted therapeutic use in the horse," but they all have the potential for affecting the performance of a racing horse." [Id.] N.) Under the Commission Rules, "[a] finding by the 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 in a race." 15.2.6.9(D) NMAC. O.) The trainer of a race horse is absolutely responsible for any positive test of a prohibited substance in that animal. To wit: The trainer is responsible for the condition of horses entered in an official workout or race and is responsible for the presence of any prohibited drug, medication or other substance, including permitted medication in excess of the maximum allowable level, in such horses. A positive test for a prohibited drug, medication or substance, including permitted medication in excess of the maximum allowable level, as reported by a Commission-approved laboratory, is prima facie evidence of a violation of this rule. In the absence of substantial evidence to the contrary, the trainer is responsible. 15.2.6.11(A) NMAC accord 16.47.1.10(A)(l) NMAC. P.) The state satisfied its burden to establish prima facie evidence that a positive test occurred and that Respondent is responsible. First, it was established that Mr. Torres was the trainer and Mr. Esquivel was the owner of '“Cartel Power”' at all relevant times. Second, it was established that the horse was selected for testing, that the sample was extracted at the Albuquerque Downs Race Track test barn, and that the integrity of the sample was preserved throughout that process. Third, it was established that the sample remained intact and secure until being tested at the Commission-approved laboratory, where established protocols yielded positive tests for Zilpaterol and Clenbuterol. See Exhibits 2-4 and 7-9, and the testimony of Ms. Johnson, Dr. England, and Dr. Stanley. Q.) Under the Commission Rules, "prima facie evidence" stands "until its effect is overcome by other evidence." 15.2.1.7(P) NMAC. If the prima facie evidence is not countered with substantial evidence as demanded under the Commission Rules, the prima facie evidence "will suffice as proof of fact in issue." [Id.] R.) As set forth above, the Commission Rules governing trainer responsibility states that a positive test will stand unless the presumption resulting therefrom is rebutted by "substantial evidence to the contrary." 15.2.6.11(A) NMAC; see also 16.47.1.10(A)(l) NMAC. S.) Substantial evidence is "such relevant evidence as a reasonable mind might accept as adequate to support a conclusion." Jones v. New Mexico State Racing Comm'n, 1983-NMSC- 089, 11 20, 100 N.M. 434. T.) Respondent presented no evidence to rebut the State's prima facie case. U.) Asserted violations of rules that do not directly bear on the issues before the Commission are collateral. See Claridge v. N.M. State Racing Comm'n, 1988-NMCA-056, 107 N.M. 632,641,763 P.2d 66. V.) The Commission is not required to find the chain was established in sufficient detail to exclude all possibility of tampering. It is not necessary to establish every link in the chain, nor does conflicting testimony render the evidence inadmissible. [Id.] W.) The chain of custody on the split sample was adequately established by the standardized form signed by the Horsemen Association representative, acknowledging receipt of the sample identified as NM20540, and by the fact that the testing laboratory received the sample in good condition. X.) The legal residuum rule requires an administrative action be supported by some evidence that would be admissible in a trial. Bransford v. State Taxation and Revenue Dep't, 1998- NMCA-077, 11 18,125 N.M. 285 (citations omitted). Y.) There was sufficient direct evidence in the form of documentation and testimony of witnesses who participated in the investigation and collection of the sample for purposes of application of the legal residuum rule. Z.) The evidence presented established a prima facie case pursuant to Commission Rules that Respondent was responsible for the presence of the prohibited drugs Zilpaterol and Clenbuterol in the urine of the horse "“Cartel Power”." AA.) Because Mr. Torres failed to successfully rebut the state's prima facie evidence, he is absolutely responsible for the positive test and in violation of the Commission's prohibition on Zilpaterol. Owner Mr. Esquivel is likewise responsible. BB.) Under the Commission Rules, the penalty associated with a particular prohibited substance, drug, chemical,or medication is dependent upon its classification within the RCI Guidelines. See 15.2.6.9 NMAC. CC.) Rule 15.2.6.9 NMAC prescribes "recommended" penalty ranges upon the finding of a positive test. Under 15.2.6.9(C), penalty ranges are set forth for violations involving a positive test for a drug assigned to penalty Category A and a drug assigned to penalty Category B. DD.) "In issuing penalties against individuals found guilty of medication and drug violations, a regulatory distinction shall be made between the detection of therapeutic medications used routinely to treat racehorses and those drugs that have no reason to be found at any concentration in the test sample on race day." 15.2.6.9(8) NMAC. EE.) For a trainer, applicable Category A penalties are "a minimum one-year suspension to a maximum three-year suspension, a fine of $25,000 or 25% of total purse (greater of the two)." 15.2.6.9(C)(l). FF.) For Owners, applicable Category A penalties are disqualification, loss of purse and the horse shall be placed on the veterinarian's list for 90 days and must pass a commission- approved examination before becoming eligible to be entered. [Id.] GG.) For a Trainer, recommended applicable Category B penalties are "a minimum 15-day suspension to a maximum 60-day, and $500 to 1,000 fine.'' 15.2.6.9(C)(l). HH.) For Owners, applicable Category B penalties are "disqualification, loss of purse and horse must pass a commission-approved examination before becoming eligible to be entered." [Id.]
ORDER IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED as to Trainer Juan D. Torres: 1.) A three year suspension; to begin on May 2, 2019; and 2.) A $25,000 fine; is due on or before 30 days of this order This Decision and 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.
