Masochistic has been officially disqualified from his 2nd place finish in the BC Sprint
Santa Anita stewards held a brief procedural meeting Friday, during which they formally disqualified Masochistic from his second-place finish in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Sprint after he tested positive for the steroid stanozolol.
The Daily Racing Form reports that stewards Grant Baker, Scott Chaney, and Kim Sawyer will issue an official ruling announcing the decision over the weekend.
According to the Form, the official order of finish and the prize money awarded will be amended for the third through seventh-place finishers of the race. The disqualification does not affect the race winner, Drefong.
Masochistic is owned by Los Pollos Hermanos Racing and Jay Em Ess Stable, and trained by Ron Ellis.
