Trainer/Owner Adolfo Macias Suspended 90 Days After Barn Search

Adolfo Macias has had both his owner’s and trainer’s licenses suspended for 90 days by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission, beginning Dec. 1 and running through Feb. 28, 2022. According to a ruling issued on Nov. 13, the suspension stems from a barn search at Ashwood Training Center on July 28, 2021, which turned up injectable medications, hypodermic needles and syringes.

In an additional ruling issued on the same date, Macias’ trainee Enraged has been disqualified from his win at Ellis Park on July 9, 2021. Industrial Laboratories indicated that a post-race sample from Enraged was positive for dexamethasone, and the split sample was confirmed by Texas A & M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory. The KHRC also fined Macias for the violation, his first in 365 days.

Macias, who has been training since 2005, has saddled 127 winners from 1,165 starters.

According to thoroughbredrulings.com, Macias has previously been cited for positives of phenylbutazone (Jan. 22, 2009; March 7, 2009; May 3, 2011), flunixin (May 3, 2011), and dexamethasone (Dec. 30, 2012)
