Holborn Hanover has been disqualified from his 1:47.4 win in the $203,000 American National at Balmoral Park in late August, and trainer Brett Robinson has been fined $2,500 after the 5-year-old pacer tested positive for the Class 3 drug Pyrilamine, an antihistamine.

Illinois Racing Board projects manager Mickey Ezzo told harnessracing.com Wednesday afternoon that a hearing was held Sunday night, Oct. 15, at Balmoral Park, and Robinson has five days to appeal the ruling. Holborn Hanover\'s winner\'s share from that Aug. 26 race for owners John Fielding and Canamerica Capital Corp. was $97,440. With Holborn Hanover\'s disqualification, Lis Mara has been moved up as the official winner.

On Aug. 5, Holborn Hanover paced to a world-record 1:46.4 victory in the U.S. Pacing Championship at the Meadowlands.
