O'Neill Will Serve 45-Day Suspension

Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Doug O'Neill said he will drop his appeal of a 45-day suspension in California stemming from a carbon dioxide overage in one of his horses in 2010 and will serve the suspension from Aug. 19-Sept. 27.

During that time, when the boutique Del Mar Turf Club meet is being held, O'Neill's barn and horses will be under supervision of his assistant, Leandro Mora.

"I think my time and money would be better invested by dropping the appeal," O'Neill said July 11. “Like everyone, as a trainer you are going 100 miles per hour six to seven days a week. It will give me a chance to slow down a little and help me try to be a better trainer when I come back. (During the suspension), Leandro will keep it as consistent and smooth sailing as possible."

Can't wait to have you back Doug, enjoy your vacation! What a stupid technicality.
So, "All of these medications are used frequently and all are peer-approved treatments: albuterol, acepromazine, xylazine, omeprazole, polyglycan, phenylbutazone...? It seems to me that if a horse needs this many medications to be able to race he shouldn't be racing
Dutrow and many others would, by being judged by degree of charge, be MILES ahead of him in the line up to the big house.
I think he needs to go to jail and get out of racing. Not good for biz
