American Trainer Banned from Churchill Downs

Popular American Trainer Karl Broberg has been banned from entering and stalling horses at Churchill Downs and it's other racecourses and properties. It's another crack down on horse welfare by American tracks. Here's there report on the matter. 

"On the night of Sept. 18, Karl Broberg's Rockandahardplace finished sixth of seven in a $10,000 claiming race at Churchill Downs. A claim for the 5-year-old gelding was voided after the race by rule when the horse was declared lame by a KHRC veterinarian at the test barn. The horse was returned to his stall by a paid hotwalker, but a subsequent investigation revealed that there was no responsible representative of the trainer on-site to make veterinary decisions or to take appropriate steps to protect the welfare of the injured horse. As a result of Karl Broberg's failure to properly care for the horse, Churchill Downs Incorporated has indefinitely revoked his stalling and entry privileges at all Churchill Downs Incorporated properties effective immediately."
