Blu Moon Ace, the second-place finisher in the Sept. 16 Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash at Laurel Park, has been disqualified from the Grade 3 race because of a positive test for an excessive level of cobalt, the mineral that has been used under the belief that it can have effects similar to expensive blood-doping drugs.
