Biancone Granted Conditional License By KY Horse Racing Commission

Patrick Biancone, who has not held a trainer's license in Kentucky since 2007, has been granted a conditional license by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.

The BloodHorse reports that the KHRC's License Review Committee approved the conditional license during its meeting Wednesday. However, the full racing commission will make the final decision as to whether or not to fully license Biancone. That meeting is scheduled for Aug. 15.

In 2007, Biancone had his Kentucky license revoked after cobra venom was discovered during a search of his barn at Keeneland. Officials had conducted the search after one of Biancone's horses tested positive for caffeine. The cobra venom was found in a container with the name of Biancone's veterinarian, Rodney Stewart, on the box.

During its meeting Wednesday, the license review committee included two conditions that Biancone agreed to follow. The first is that should Biancone be discovered with any Class A or Class B medication, regardless of what racing jurisdiction it is in, his license will be immediately – and permanently – revoked.

The second condition states that if Biancone is found to falsify any future license application in any other racing state, his Kentucky license will be revoked.

The conditional license was approved by a 4-1 vote.
