Ziadie's presence a new low for Maryland racing

Kirk Ziadie's success as a thoroughbred trainer in Florida generated more suspicions than accolades. He won races at an astonishing rate, and horses improved phenomenally under his care, but skeptics of his achievements could point to the fact that he had 13 medication violations on his record from 2004 through 2009. By last summer, Calder Race Course had had enough of its four-time leading trainer. The Miami track took the most drastic punitive action available to it, telling Ziadie on Aug. 20 that he was barred from its grounds and that he had 72 hours to clear out.
