08/24/135 AFTERNOON DECLARATION
Shortly after the third race was run the Stewards received notification from Safety Steward Luis Jauregui that when he was pulling up in front of the Receiving Barn he noticed an individual from the Doug O’Neill barn, which is situated across from the Receiving Barn, enter the stall of a horse with a detention sign on the door and administer a product into its mouth. He confronted the person, who turned out to be the foreman, and confiscated the tube, which had the brand name CB2A and contained amino acids, which are illegal to give on race day. The horse turned out to be Cinco de Mario, which was scheduled to run in the fifth race. Mr. O’Neill was informed of the situation and told that the horse would have to be scratched.
The refund amounted to $10,674.70
Perhaps it is merely a coincidence that this barn got sizzling hot after being ice cold the first three weeks of the meet.
O'Neill also had a postitive test for an anti-depressant in New York with a horse that broke his maiden .. the purse was taken away and the horse that won, who was claimed by Asmussen, is now eligible again for a maiden race. It is supposedly a trace amount and NYRA has not decided a course of action as of yet.

I read this as well in the stewards minutes and was shocked drf or Paulick didnt run with this (although I hear paulick and doug are bff's now so that would explain it). The guy and his crew are cheats pure and simple but if you have the biggest barn you can do whatever you want.
But I'll Have Another's scratch from the most important race ever(the Belmont,after winning the first 2 legs) was solely due to an "inury".....lolololololool. With the detention barn,he would've lost by 30 n the Belmont.Drug O'Neill should be banned for life.He is a scumbag of the highest(lowest) order.We ran him out of here(Monmouth) 7 years ago after only 2 weeks,when syringes were found aplenty all over his barn and in his underlings possession.He is the A-Rod of racing.He charms the "KNow-nothings" ,like those on TVG,because deep inside he knows he is a bogus cheater.Get people to like you,and then they won't investigate you.Here's to you Drug O'Neill,and hope there is a fiery plane crash in your future.
