Most recently it was discovered that on Tuesday, October 1, 2013, the State of New York Supreme Court in the County of Schenectady has rendered its decision in the case of Lou Pena and the State of New York. The decision was to direct the State of New York to dismiss all charges against him.
Pena, who has had limited racing opportunities the last two years, currently shows 2,836 career training victories and earnings of $23,408,104 from the horses his has trained. He was currently training and racing his horses primarily at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Pennsylvania. So far in 2013 he has sent out 228 starters with 49 wins, a UDR rating of .341 and earnings of $504,230.
No word yet if Pena will be able to return to racing at Yonkers Raceway or the Meadowlands when it reopens in November.
The Supreme Court Justice, Honorable Vincent J. Reilly, Jr.’s letter of decision is posted below in a pdf format.
