Court date set in It's a Bird DQ case


A court date in the case of It’s a Bird , who was disqualified from his six-length win in last year’s Grade 2, $500,000 Oaklawn Handicap, has been set for Aug. 26 in Pulaski County Circuit Court in Little Rock, Ark., according to an official with the Arkansas Racing Commission. It’s a Bird’s connections are appealing the disqualification, which came after the horse tested positive for naproxen, a Class 4 nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is sold for human use under the brand name of Aleve.
