Wednesday, September 6th, 2017
DEL MAR, Calif. – Trainer John Brocklebank has been fined $750 after one of his runners at Santa Anita in June tested in excess of the permitted level of the anti-inflammatory dexamethasone.
The test was taken from Spirit of Shanghai, who won a $40,000 claiming race for maiden 2-year-olds as the 6-5 favorite in the first race on June 18.
The post-race test found 149 picograms of dexamethasone, well above the permitted level of five picograms, according to California Horse Racing Board rules.
