February 11, 2005

Late Wednesday an attorney for trainer Jenny Belcher asked an Ohio judge to dismiss their lawsuit against the Ohio State Racing Commission and Northfield Park. The case was dismissed without prejudice and then Belcher's attorney quickly filed an appeal with the racing commission of her one-year suspension for a positive test and also requested a split sample test be performed.

Since that development, Northfield Park and The Meadows have refused to take the entries of Belcher's horses.

In early January a test on one of Belcher's horses came back positive for the Class I drug aminorex, which carries a one-year suspension in Ohio.
