Ruling Text: Jockey Paul Nieto, having been duly notified, appeared before the Board of Stewards on August 9, 2020 for striking his mount “Give It Away” in the face and about the eyes (confirmed by the trainer afterwards) in the 4th race on August 8, 2019 at Ruidoso Downs Racetrack. Observation of this violation with video confirmation provided, aggravates consideration of an increased penalty. For this rule violation, the Board of Stewards assess Apolonio (Paul) Nieto-Hinojosa, a penalty in the amount of one thousand dollars (1000.00) dollars. Further, should any veterinary invoices/medication expenses occur for this horse he will be held liable. The fine is to be paid on or before September 10, 2020 in accordance with 15.2.3.8(B) (3) (l) NMAC. Failure to pay the fine within the time prescribed will result in immediate suspension. Aggravating Factor: Professional judgement dictates his knowledge/correct use of the riding crop. His denial of the violation versus admission of error, justifies an increase in penalty. Cruelty, mistreatment and/or abuse, has no justification for this licensee's actions.

Licensee is found to be in violation of: 15.2.5.13(E)(6)(e) Use of riding crops. Indiscriminate use of the whip is prohibited including whipping a horse: on the head, flanks or on any other part of its body other than the shoulders or hind quarters except when necessary to control a horse; during the post parade or after the finish of the race except when necessary to control the horse; excessively or brutally causing welts or breaks in the skin; when the horse is clearly out of the race or has obtained its maximum placing; persistently even though the horse is showing no response under the riding crop; or striking another rider or horse. 16.47.1.8(U)(2) General Provisions, Protection of horses: No licensee or other person under the jurisdiction of the commission shall subject or permit any animal under their control, custody or supervision to be subjected to or to incur any form of cruelty, mistreatment, neglect or abuse or abandon, injure, maim or kill orkill or administer any noxious substance to or deprive any animal of necessary care or sustenance, shelter or veterinary care.

This ruling is written in accordance with: 15.2.1.9(B)(4)(A)NMAC Notice Except as provided by these rules regarding summary suspension, jockey riding infractions and trial races, the stewards or a racing commission designee shall provide written notice, at least 10 days before the hearing, to a person who is the subject of a disciplinary hearing.

Ruling Text: On August 7, 2020, the Board of Stewards offered a hearing to Owner/Trainer, John A. Casey, Permit #30288, DOB 7/15/1961 to which he waived his right to a hearing regarding a medication violation pertaining to his horse “Feisty and Sassy” who finished first (1st) in the first (1st) race on Saturday June 13, 2020. The Stewards hereby find the following: The official blood sample #363287, taken on 06/13/20 was reported by Industrial Laboratories, the official testing laboratory, to contain Dexamethasone which is a Class 4 drug, with a C Penalty, designation. The permissible threshold for Dexamethasone is 5 picograms per milliliter of plasma or serum. Sample #363287 contained 253 +/-.6 pg/ml of the drug, which is above the permissible threshold for this drug. The sample was taken from the Five (5) horse, “Feisty and Sassy”, which ran in the 1st Race on 6/13/20, finishing first. Mr. Casey elected to have a split sample tested. The split sample #363287 was sent to Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory in College Station Texas. The findings at Texas A&M confirmed the testing at Industrial Laboratories. Sample #363287 was subjected to instrumental analysis for the presence of Dexamethasone. Dexamethasone was found at a concentration of 242 +/- 63 picograms per milliliter. 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 Dexamethasone is 5 picograms per milliliter of plasma or serum. Because the amount of Dexamethasone in “Feisty and Sassy” exceeded the acceptable threshold set forth in Table 178-1 F. Mr. Casey 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 Dexamethasone positive in “Feisty and Sassy” is Mr. Casey’s First Offense in this category for a medication/substance violation in a 365 days period. The permit holder has accumulated ½ points under the multiple medication violation point system as a result of this issuance. Mr. Casey is assessed ½ point for this Dexamethasone 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 this class category 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: Dexamethasone 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 Dexamethasone 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 an Allowance race with a $29,000 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 Dexamethasone 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 Dexamethasone 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. Casey’s horse “Feisty and Sassy” will be disqualified from all purse money and Mr. Casey will have a total of 1 point on his record. The Dexamethasone positive, being the first medication violation in this class category in 365 day. Mr. Casey is fined $1000 dollars. The horse “Feisty and Sassy” is disqualified from all purse money; Re-Distribution is as follows. 1. #3 Dubai Was Lit 2. #6 Moonlit Night 3. #4 Meltech 4. #1 Mean to Amend 5. #2 Mayhem Like Me 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.
