Seven horses have been scratched during Little Brown Jug week at the Delaware (Ohio) County Fairgrounds--including two on Jugette day Wednesday--for pre-race elevated blood-gas tests. All seven horses tested over the Ohio limit of 38 in the tests taken in the Delaware paddock.

The two horses scratched on Wednesday due to high TCO2 tests were the Barbara Redder-trained Mac\'s Jess P Punch out of a $3,000 conditioned pace and the Virgil Morgan Jr.-trained Sure Mark N out of a $4,000 conditioned pace. According to current Ohio regulations, there are no other sanctions toward the trainer, horse or owner other than having the horse scratched.
