Pennsylvania Racing Commission revokes Ramon Preciado's license

For the second time this month, Ramon Preciado's trainer's license has been revoked.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