Owner And Veterinarian Suspended For Albuterol Possession In New York

According to a Daily Racing Form report, a veterinarian and an owner were given 30-day suspensions and fines related to the discovery of albuterol in the owner's car this week. Owner Raj Jagnanan was fined $1,500 for having a veterinary version drug, which should only be in the possession of a licensed veterinarian. Jagnanan said the bottle was unopened and had been in his car since it was prescribed for a horse several months earlier.

Dr. Camilo Sierra was handed a $2,500 fine for allegedly prescribing albuterol, a bronchodilator, to a horse without first examining the horse, and putting the prescription in a fake patient name. Sierra has appealed the suspension.

Jagnanan will not be permitted to start horses in his name or assist with “any aspect of ownership” during his suspension, according to the report.
