CYPRESS, Calif. – Trainer Jorge Gutierrez has been fined $500 after one of his runners at Del Mar in July tested positive for two anti-inflammatory medications – phenylbutazone and flunixin.
Trainers are not allowed to administer more than one anti-inflammatory medication, according to California Horse Racing Board regulations.
According to a ruling published Sunday by Los Alamitos stewards, the positives were found in a post-race test taken from Stole My ‘Art, who finished last of eight in a race for $12,500 claimers on July 23.
Stole My ‘Art was claimed that day by trainer John Brocklebank.
