Belmont Park: Trainer Randi Persaud fined $1,000


ELMONT, N.Y. - The stewards fined trainer Randi Persaud $1,000 for failure to tend to business in a proper manner in regard to a horse of his that was on the veterinarian’s list.

In order to get a horse off the vet’s list and make him eligible to race again, the horse has to work before a veterinarian and only on medications that he would permitted to race on.

A blood test was taken on the horse in question and it revealed the presence of Bute, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory that the horse would not be permitted to race on. The horse was put back on the vet’s list for a 14-day period.
Entering Monday’s 10th race, Persaud was winless with his last 168 starters dating back to March 30.
