The California Horse Racing Board is dropping its case against Roger Stein, the trainer who was suspended for six months and fined $2,000 after one of his horses tested positive for cocaine after a race at Santa Anita in October of 1988. The Stein case is the last to be dismissed by the board, which dropped charges last year against five other trainers whose horses also tested positive for cocaine. Those trainers included Wayne Lukas and Laz Barrera, two of the biggest names in racing.

Trainer Roger Stein angrily denied Thursday that he or his barn employees were responsible for one of his horses testing positive for cocaine. "There's no basis for this whatsoever," Stein said. "I've never treated a horse with cocaine, nor have I ever known anyone to do so. I didn't do it, and no one under my hand did it. I don't know what else to say. I told the stewards that this morning. "I've been training for 10 years and I've never had anything like this happen.

"In the first batch, we found four positives for cocaine," Foote said. "In all probability, there will be additional positives. At least that's my informed guess."

The state testing laboratory that found cocaine in the system of a horse at Santa Anita last year has inadvertently lost much of the testing data because of a computer foul-up. The mistake was revealed Monday during a daylong hearing into the fine and suspension of trainer Roger Stein, whose horse tested positive and was disqualified after running second in a $10,000 claiming race Oct. 23. Stein was fined $2,000 and suspended for 6 months by track stewards.
