Anybody know what happened with this positive?
« on: March 26, 2020, 09:24:10 PM »
Manchego    Gabapentin.   Never heard any outcome about the appeal.

JOHANSSON, NANCY C ALLENTOWN, NJ YOB 1981
 
 ScD on 9/7/2019 FINED: $500 FULL - 15 DAYS, 10/30/2019 THRU 11/13/2019 HORSE DISQUALIFIED, PURSE REDISTRIBUTION APPEALED - 10/25/2019 
 POSITIVE TEST- POST RACE 
 Scioto Downs Trainer NANCY JOHANSSON is hereby fined the sum of five hundred dollars ($500.00) and issued a fifteen day full suspension from October 30, 2019 through November 13, 2019 for violation of O.S.R.C. Rule 3769-18.01(A)(2), 3769-1801(B)(1),3769-18-01(B)(15-16-17),3769-18-02 & 3769-18-99. In addition, purse money of twenty-five thousand ($25,000.00) dollars must be returned to Scioto Downs. Blood Sample #858833 on the horse MANCHEGO tested by the Analytical Toxicology Laboratory at the Ohio Department of Agriculture on September 27, 2019 revealed a presence of Gabapentin, an anticonvulsant. During her suspension Mrs. Johansson is denied the use and privileges of all grounds sanctioned by the OSRC. All horses trained by Mrs. Johnasson are suspended and may only be transferred with permission from the judges or the director at the OSRC. If the fine is not paid and purse is not returned to the judges by 11/13/2019 you may be suspended or your licensed revoked 
 Status as of 10/25/2019 - Appeal - Trainer NANCY JOHANSSON has appealed this ruling in a timely manner

The Gabapentin positive trainers so far have gotten few days but the purse money will be taken back for sure.

DIDNT ONE OF YOUR CHEATING TRAINERS, AKA STEVE CARTER, GET CAUGHT CHEATING WITH THE ABOVE LISTED ILLEGAL MEDICATION?

THOUGHT SO

I am uncomfortable with the Gabapentin positives because they seem to be exclusively called in Ohio and that many of them have been called against trainers that I fell are beyond reproach. (Wollam as an example)  They have mostly been appealed and the penalty has been reduced to no days and loss of purse money.   I suspect a possibility of an anomaly in the testing process similar to the error that has caused dexamethasone positives when using the Blood builder that has shaken the Harness world.

Obviously the state commissions agree with you that these trainers were beyond reproach as they merely gave them a slap on the wrist!  A smaller guy would have been destroyed!

Here comes honest Sam.............. ..suspect........ ....would that include all of your suspects......... ......must have hit your head pretty hard when you fell out of the bike waving your whip in the air.............. what year was that Sam.............. ..I remember 2 maybe 3 wins a year........and then lightning struck........... ..........
Just love doing the broadcast. Shuley, Chumlee, Paddock have gotten used to the holier than thou attitude. We only work on the show, because we get paid. Dealing with Ringo is a different story.

Looks like it's still under appeal and not resolved like some of the others have been.

I would be more comfortable if these positives were spread over several states.

Left shaft broke at head of stretch.  I was able to hold bike in place with my foot.  Just after I crossed finish line the right shaft broke dumping me backwards.  I got up and showed three fingers indicating I had held on for the third.

Interesting story I read about Gabapentin

"my horse was on the maximum dose,  for over 6 months, it did not make him sedated or quiet, but it worked as a perfect anxiolitic. He became the most bombproof horse you could imagine, yet stayed very alert.
In all likelihood you could have landed a helicopter in his pasture and he would have looked at it with interest instead of galloping off in a panic"

Manchego has always been a bit "hot" Guess it calmed her down just enough.

The race in question was one of three track record or world record performances in a row. Scioto, Dayton, Red Mile, and she kept on going for the rest of the year. Only Six Pack beat her in the TVG final.

I would love to see the story you mentioned and others like it.  I have never heard of it being used and my vet claims he knows nothing about it.  If it is indeed being used as as a TQ or mood altering drug I think we should hang them,

The Takters would use anything to get a positive.  They are just smarter than everyone else. ngc3

I did a Gabapentin side effects on horses search and there was a lot of stuff. I ran across that story. I didn't copy the link just the comment but I'm pretty sure it was somewhere on The Chronicle of the Horse website
