For the second time this month, Ramon Preciado's trainer's license has been revoked.

Preciado, the leading trainer at Parx Racing in both 2015 and 2014, has had at least 16 clenbuterol positives the past two seasons. The Parx stewards revoked his license in a Dec. 12 ruling for a clenbuterol violation in July.

Troubled trainer Preciado prepared to quit racing

Ramon Preciado, the Pennsylvania-based trainer whose license was revoked in the state on Dec. 21 on two separate rulings, is unlikely to continue fighting the penalties and is preparing to leave horse racing altogether, his attorney said on Thursday.

Alan Pincus, the attorney, said Preciado has not yet made a final decision, but he also said that Preciado’s legal troubles have escalated to the point where the trainer does not see a way forward. In addition to the license revocations, Parx Racing, where Preciado is based, has refused to take entries from the trainer.

How MANY federal investigations have taken place at Penn Nat in last 10 years.......sorry, I lost count.

They will just keep banning "a" trainer or something, so it looks like somebody is doing something.

I feel sorry for the horses.

Classic Empire ‘Not Going To Make The Pennsylvania Derby’

Temperamental 3-year-old Classic Empire has officially been taken out of consideration for the Sept. 23 Pennsylvania Derby, trainer Mark Casse told drf.com on Monday. The Pioneerof the Nile colt had recently shipped from Saratoga, where he'd refused to train on several occasions, back to Casse's farm in Ocala. It was a move that worked for Classic Empire leading up to the Arkansas Derby, but the colt is still not up to par.

“We're not going to make the Pennsylvania Derby,” Casse said. “He's doing fine, but I still haven't got him where I want him. We're going along, playing it day by day. I'm not going to worry about a race. I want to get him where I'm happy with him.”

Pennsylvania Governor's Cup purse redistributed after meth positive confirmed

A Pennsylvania Racing Commission ruling dated Sept. 22 has ordered the purse of the $200,000 Pennsylvania Governor's Cup at Penn National on June 3 redistributed after a split sample from the winner, Richard's Boy, confirmed the presence of methamphetamine in his system.

Bold Thunder finished first by a head over Richard's Boy in the five-furlong turf sprint but was disqualified and placed second for ducking out and bothering Richard's Boy in midstretch. Richard's Boy was awarded the victory and earned $114,800.

Parx Trainers Subpoenaed By Racing Commission For Financial, Veterinary, Phone Records

The Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission has begun issuing subpoenas seeking financial, veterinary and telephone records from licensed Thoroughbred trainers at Parx Racing in Bensalem, Pa. Jason Klouser, director of enforcement for the commission, did not provide any specifics as to the recipients, the number of subpoenas that have been issued or the purpose. “I really can't discuss it,” Klouser said. “It's an investigation that is ongoing.”

Janney Responds To Pennsylvania Commissioner: ‘There Were Indeed Regulators Asleep On The Job’

Stuart S. Janney III, chairman of The Jockey Club, has responded to a letter from Russell C. Redding – Pennsylvania's Secretary of Agriculture and chairman of the Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission – in which Redding said Janney's critical remarks at the Jockey Club Round Table in August spread “misinformation” and were “irresponsible.”

“I stand by them and I deny that I spread misinformation,” Janney said in his Oct. 17 letter to Redding.

Four suspended Parx trainers denied stay

The Pennsylvania Horse Racing Commission has denied a request for a stay for four trainers based at Parx near Philadelphia who were suspended this week for failing to comply with a subpoena, according to the attorney representing the trainers.

Alan Pincus, the attorney, said the commission denied the motion on Thursday while granting a request that the trainers receive a hearing on the matter, although a hearing date has not yet been scheduled. In the meantime, the trainers, two of whom are in the top 10 by wins at Parx this year, have been denied access to Parx and cannot enter any horses.

State Officials Reviewing Horse Ambulance Delay At Penn National
The Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission said it is reviewing a Nov. 17 incident at Penn National racetrack in Grantville, Pa., in which it took a reported eight minutes for the horse ambulance to arrive so that a stricken horse could be treated and, ultimately, euthanized.

Aspic, a 6-year-old mare bred, owned and trained by Candice M. Smith and ridden by Jacqueline Davis, suffered a catastrophic injury and fell while racing in third position in the six-furlong allowance race for registered Pennsylvania-breds. A second horse, Hygh Life, lost her rider, Kaylia Albright, trying to avoid the fallen horse but was not apparently injured. Neither rider suffered major injuries although Davis suffered contusions in the leg and collarbone area and was sidelined for 10 days.

Footnotes in the originally published race chart from Equibase, the Thoroughbred industry's official database, stated: “Aspic chased the pace on the outside, broke down at the three-eighths pole and was euthanized after the ambulance took about eight minutes to arrive.”

It's a little harder to sweep it under the rug when you have it in the chart, however briefly.

Has anyone seen the articles from Paulick about Mario Rafael Rodriguez not giving his horses immediate veterinary care? One of his horses, Silent Ruler was found in distress with a fractured leg. Now they rescued another horse from
his barn. This POS needs to have his license revoked and not come near a racetrack again.

And let's not forget that "...a horse was found dead in its stall in the Rodriguez shedrow Dec. 15 after it had been treated for colic earlier in the day."
That sounds like the poor horse was left to die in pain when that 'earlier' treatment didn't fix it.
The SOB needs to have his ankle broken with a baseball bat and then have his ass tossed out of the track. And have his license permanently revoked. :evil:

I really never understand this sentiment? It this awful? Yes.
Is wishing ill on other people awful? Yes.

Always give props to Paulick who actually takes it to some of the shit in racing and generally does not back down.

I don't 'wish ill' on other people very often. I'm pretty selective about whom I choose to curse.
This asshole qualifies, IMHO. :P

Here’s the original article about Silent Ruler. Trainer originally only given a 45 day suspension and a $500 fine, but then recently upped the suspension to a year. Hopefully he’ll be gone for good now since another horse needed emergency care and he didn’t provide the necessary care for the poor horse.
