The controversial horseman - Lou Pena.

Controversial Sacramento harness racing trainer Lou Pena had his defence team, spearheaded by Long Island lawyer Andrew J. Turro, confront the New York State Racing and Wagering Board today (Tuesday June 19).

Late last month Pena was suspended indefinitely for illegally drugging horses in nearly 700 races in New York State and amassing more than 1,700 equine drug violations.

Turro was seeking a stay of proceedings.

The Judge took the matter under submission. He wanted to take a day or two to read all the papers.

A decision is hoped before the weekend.
