Reibercrombie will compete in the George Morton Levy Memorial Series at Yonkers on Saturday night. Owner Steve Calhoun appealed the ruling of the New York State Racing and Wagering Board, which honored the horse's suspension in Ontario, and a stay was granted.
Earlier in the week, according to the New York State Racing and Wagering Board director of communications Lee Park, Reibercrombie's scratch came after "the presiding judges at every track in New York have been instructed to honor stewards' list prohibitions from any jurisdiction."
Reibercrombie won a division of the second round of the Cam Fella Series March 3 at Woodbine Racetrack, but had the positive for the Class III drug Ephedrine and Phenylpropanolamine after a second-place finish in the Cam Fella opener on Feb. 25. Reibercrombie was suspended 90 days, from March 20 through May 3. Trainer Casie Coleman, who shares ownership of Reibercrombie with Steve Calhoun, was given a 45-day suspension from March 20 through May 3 and a $5,000 fine. She will also have to serve two years probation following the ending of the suspension.
