PETA Funds Lawsuit From Losing Horseplayer Against Trainer After Horse Tests Positive

According to a report from the Daily Racing Form, an Illinois-based horseplayer has filed suit against harness trainer Robert Bresnahan and owner J.L. Sadowsky LLC for more than $31,000 — the amount the man says he would have won if not for Tag Up and Go, who won the fourth race at Meadowlands on Jan. 15, 2016.

Tag Up and Go later came up with a positive for erythropoietin (EPO) on an out-of-competition test pulled prior to the race and trainer Bresnahan was banned from the track grounds for 60 days. Horseplayer Jeffrey Tretter claims that if Tag Up and Go had not been entered, he would have cashed win, place, show, exacta, trifecta, and superfecta bets totaling more than $31,000 since he had wagers on the horses in the second through fifth-place positions.

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is bankrolling the suit, according to the Form.
