Last night, at the OTB parlor, people were talking about a supposed incident with Rucker from about 10 years ago, where him and his vet were actually caught red-handed pre-racing a horse on race day. The guy that caught him worked for the state and this incident was supposedly the reason that Ken Rucker stopped using his name as trainer in the mid 90's. My questions are, did this event actually happen? What was the penalty? Could that have weighed against him when it came to handing out penalties in this latest positive?
Yes this is true, he had a stay and something elce for a year, It got piched out of court because what i hear to many holes our good IRB bad paper work,
