Sometimes IL visitor Al Stall got a 10 day suspension from Kentucky for a methocarbamol positive, his 2nd of the Fall Churchill meet.

This article muddies the water a little by calling it a "banned substance". Banned on raceday, maybe.

Substance in question is banned on raceday only. 48 hour withdrawal time.

They found a trace amount that was unlikely to affect performance, so it sounds like it was given too close to race day. No intent to cheat, IMO -- just a little careless with the calendar.

Agreed, however he still has serve the suspension as the rules have to be applied.  I've had it happen to me before and you are correct about a persons intent but it doesn't absovle you.

I don't understand this comment, unless it's meant as pure sarcasm.

Didn't mean that he should be absolved of responsibility...just wanted to make the point that it's unlikely Al Stall was cheating on this one. The overage was too small to be much other than a timing error.

I didn't think you meant it that way.  And I agree again, that overage would have absolutely no effect on performance...not one that small.

It wasn't at all.  Claiborne was always run as a super-clean outfit, going back to the days when Woody Stephens and David Whiteley were training their horses. Stall is a terrific trainer, and he has none of the indicia of the gas-man.
