Lesson for Trainer: Read the Label

October 23, 1998| From Associated Press

NEW YORK — Trainer Tom Voss was suspended Thursday for seven days and fined $3,000 for using a medication he has often used for treating his horses.

The Belmont Park stewards ordered the fine and suspension, which runs from Monday through Nov. 1, after a post-race test of Grand Turk, second in the first race Sept. 3 at Saratoga, revealed the presence of lidocaine, a banned substance.

Voss said he did not realize lidocaine had been added to the over-the-counter product Campho-Phenique, an analgesic and anti-inflammatory medication he often has used to treat horses.

Voss waived his right to appeal.
