At a meeting of the Ohio State Racing Commission Thursday (March 18), Walter Case Jr. was denied in his bid to regain his license to compete. In a vote of 5-0, Case failed in his request for reinstatement, however he was told that he could now request a formal hearing, which could be held as early as April 22.

"I'd die to drive a horse again," Case reportedly told the commission. "I know it won't happen today or soon, I just want a chance to train and make a living. I love horses very much."

Case, who apologized to the commission for having been placed in this situation, has not driven since last June. He surrendered his license in Ohio after accumulating nearly six months in suspension time. He was also arrested and spent some time in jail following an altercation at Northfield Park.

Hoping to make it back to the racetrack, Case is reportedly in an anger and alcohol diagnosis program and regularly attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
