Harnessracing.com has learned Tuesday morning that a hearing scheduled for Wednesday, May 30, with the New York State Racing and Wagering Board (NYSRWB) and recently-suspended trainer Lou Pena has been postponed. According to NYSRWB spokesman Lee Park, the hearing has been "delayed at Pena's attorneys' request. The attorneys will confer to find a mutually available date."
Pena was indefinitely suspended last week by the NYSRWB as a result of an alleged 1,719 drug violations that involved 675 races in New York between January 2010 and April 2012. The suspension came as a result of an investigation that involved the NYSRWB and the New Jersey Racing Commission as Pena's horses are stabled at Gaitway Farm in New Jersey.
