Upperline DQ'd From Arlington Oaks

Arlington Park stewards have disqualified Upperline from her win in the $100,000 Arlington Oaks (G3) on July 3 and suspended her trainer Mike Stidham after she tested positive for etodolac, a prohibited non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

Stidham trains the three-year-old Maria’s Mon filly for a partnership that includes himself, John Adger, Stone Farm, and Oakcrest Farm. The Arlington Oaks was her first start since finishing fifth in the Central Bank Ashland Stakes (G1) on April 3 at Keeneland, and she has not raced since finishing first in the Arlington Oaks by six lengths
