Harnessracing.com has learned that In the wake of trainer Casie Coleman's 60-day suspension by the Ontario Racing Commission as a result of three positive tests for flumethasone at Woodbine Racetrack, horses trained by her assistants will not be allowed to race at the Meadowlands during the course of that suspension.
Coleman's suspension began March 5 and is scheduled to run through May 3, with a period of probation then in effect until May 2016. Following the announcement of the suspension, Coleman's East Coast-based horses that competed primarily at Yonkers Raceway were transferred to assistant trainer Andrew Harris. Although the Harris-trained horses continue to race at Yonkers, an official at the Meadowlands told harnessracing.com Wednesday afternoon that no horse trained by Harris nor any other of Coleman's assistant trainers will be allowed to race at the New Jersey track.
The official added that Coleman's situation will be reviewed following the expiration of the current suspension as to her future eligibility at the Meadowlands Racetrack.
