In the past five years, the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission suspended three trainers after their horses tested positive for banned drugs.
Steven M. Schreibvogel, 53, of Garden City, Kan., trained Pulaski Runner, which finished first in the eighth race at Will Rogers Downs in Claremore on May 16, 2011. The horse later tested positive for a drug commonly known as MDPV, a central nervous system stimulant that is sold as bath salts and plant food. The commission suspended Schreibvogel for a year and fined him $2,500. The fine has not been paid, a condition of reinstatement.
Gerry D. McLean, 63, of McAlester, trained Jimmers Cashin In, which finished first in the second race at Remington Park in Oklahoma City on May 29, 2011. The horse tested positive for MDPV. The commission suspended McLean for a year and fined him $2,500. He has been reinstated.
Joe A. McAnally, 54, of Oklahoma City, trained Black Market Brick, which finished second in the sixth race at Will Rogers Downs on May 16 and Evil Attitude, which finished second in the seventh race the next day. Both horses tested positive for MDPV. The commission suspended McAnally for a year and fined him $5,000. He has been reinstated.
