Trainer gets two-year suspension


Owner-trainer Kimmy Gammon has been fined a total of $2,000 and suspended for two years in two rulings issued by the stewards at Beulah Park.

Gammon was fined and suspended for having in his possession numerous hypodermic syringes and needles as well as bottles containing undisclosed medications during a search of his vehicle when he shipped in horses to race here on March 13, according to the rulings.

According to state steward Herb Clark and track stewards Joe DeLuca and Jim Beck, two loaded syringes containing the sedative Dormosedan were found in the glove compartment of Gammon's vehicle. Numerous other syringes, needles, and bottles were also found in his horse trailer. The stewards said Gammon is planning to appeal the rulings.
