I do not know how they can bring up issues that were over 3 years ago, that either he has paid the fines or no issues were found.

I think due to his “integrity” issues, they’re using as evidence?

I agree, I blame the anti racing zealots that I am sure are pushing the issue on the other side.

I’m posting this here as no where else to post it, Why would they leave this vet still in position with these allegations??

The petition specifically cited the ongoing investigation into the sudden death of Medina Spirit as a reason for the veterinary medical board's concern for swift action. It also alleges that in a two-month span, Blea administered medications to 3,225 horses in 67 working days, for an average of 48 horses per day.

“The records show Respondent Blea administered the same drugs for multiple horses with the same trainer consecutively at approximately the same time,” read the petition. “Respondent Blea provided drugs to a large number of horses not based on a documented examination, diagnosis or medical necessity, but instead based on what the trainer requests.”

I don’t even know why they leave that vet in his position after allegations. I’m glad they’ve switched to another vet.

Because he is considered innocent till proven otherwise. Also it’s basically lack of appropriate paperwork. From what I have read.
