I'm surprised he hasn't been caught. I would think that if someone hired a private investigator that they would be able to track him and his associates and find out where he gets the stuff. That's how they caught Ledford, his horses never tested positive, the NJ state police investigated and found the stuff. Obviously Pena doesn't keep it around the barn but it has to be administered somewhere.

I know everyone wants better testing but I'm not sure that is the way to go. The handle keeps going down and no one wants to spend the money, plus there's no guarantee that better testing will catch everything. In my opinion the penalties for using illegal substances have to be much stricter and the owners have to be held libel too, not just the trainers. This way they can't use beard trainers and get away with it. The Lightning Lane Stable move their horses from one cheating trainer to another and have been doing it for years.
