Since this is going to be a hot topic for a while, I am starting this thread so that we do not clog the Jockey/Trainer thread with all the information that will be coming out.

I am going to post a few of the posts from the Jockey/Trainer Thread

I know I am a member of WHOA and while this morning’s news came as a shock it also doesn’t shock me.! This reminds me of the shakedown that happened in the Hunter/Jumper world in the late 60’s early 70’s. Back then it was tranquilizers and it rocked that world for a while. But it was definitely for the better long term.

I do hope this is a wake up call for racing and that we can finally get the uniform drug reform and NO drugs in the runners system on or before race day that is so desperately needed.

I also know that the A/R groups will be out there in force pushing to end racing period over this. 
So today I am asking all of you, I will be watching For any Legislation coming thru State and Federal houses and if I ask you to write or call your Legislators please please do so.

Looks like at least one of Navarros owners knew about the doping. What we don’t know is which one. 

It seems at least one owner was aware of Navarro's drug program. The indictment makes reference to a call with unidentified operators of a racing stable based in California about Navarro trainee Nanoosh. The owner asked if Navarro was “giving them all the [censored]” and asking “Is this horse jacked out? Is he on [censored] pills or what…” to which Navarro responded “Everything … he gets everything.”

Nanoosh is listed in Equibase as being co-owned by Rockingham Ranch, Zayat Stables and David Bernsen. Zayat Stables is based in New Jersey.

Scratched horses and a CA investigation themselves. So what are they investigating that the Feds haven’t? Other trainers at their tracks?

Scratching horses is the correct way to handle it because there will not be someone with a license to run them this soon. 
I missed the part about CA investigations where was that?
