For the second time this month, Ramon Preciado's trainer's license has been revoked.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Ramon Preciado, the Pennsylvania-based trainer whose license was revoked in the state on Dec. 21 on two separate rulings, is unlikely to continue fighting the penalties and is preparing to leave horse racing altogether, his attorney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.”

At this rate, why not just call it a year and turn him out for a few months.
