JB there is a lot going on there. I am not certain that the trainer’s intent/ attempt to cheat is even relevant. As Fairduel’s Jesuit law professors likely taught him, mens rea is not an element of the offense.
If the split comes back clean that calls the entire testing process into question. Send samples to two other labs?
I know BB is a lightning rod but for me too many voices out there saying that injected hock/stifle too close to race day could produce the overage found in ME. If this is a horse with a weak hind end and he even competes in three races in five weeks without lasix that would be quite a training feat.
