Zoomin Effortlessly disqualified from Remington Park Invitational


Zoomin Effortlessly has been disqualified from his win in the Grade 1, $250,000 Remington Park Invitational after the Quarter Horse tested over the threshold level for stanozolol, a steroid. Moonin The Eagle has been elevated to first place in the race, which rewarded its winner with a berth in the Champion of Champions at Los Alamitos.

The Remington Park Invitational was run on June 4.

Zoomin Effortlessly captured his eighth straight race in the Remington Park Invitational and set a track record for 440 yards. A ruling on the overage was issued by the Remington board of stewards on July 29, and orders in the case were put out by the Oklahoma Racing Commission on Wednesday.

Richard Lee Robinson, the trainer of Zoomin Effortlessy, waived his right to a hearing and has been ordered to pay a fine of $1,500. Telesforo Perrett, who owns Zoomin Effortlessly, also waived his right to a hearing, according to the orders issued by the commission. Perrett was informed “any trophy or other reward” also was to be returned.

The Champion of Champions is a Grade 1, $500,000 race on Dec. 10 at Los Alamitos.
