Trainer Ron Ellis begins a 60-day suspension this week for the positive steroid test on Masochistic after the 2016 Breeders Cup Sprint. The length of the suspension requires Ellis to disband his stable, give up his assigned Santa Anita stalls, remove any signage, and not turn over any of his horses to anyone who has been employed by the Ellis stable within the last year.

This was his first medication violation in 37 years of training. It's a pretty stiff penalty for a first time offender considering there are so many repeat offenders still dong business trying to find new ways to mask illegal drug use.

Mmmmmmm. Wonder if Ellis was given this penalty for all of the years he violated the rules and either wasn't caught or, becuase he was a leading trainer, offiicals looked the other way......
