Oklahoma Quarter Horse trainer Roberto Sanchez-Munoz was fined $100,000 and suspended 100 years for 10 different cases of dermorphin positives during Remington Park's 2012 meet. The Oklahoma Racing Commission panel suspended 80 years of the sentence, requiring 20 years be served. Additionally, Sanchez-Munoz's assistant trainer Alejandro Sanchez-Munoz was suspended 20 years and fined $10,000.

The pair's suspensions could begin as early as Feb. 21 barring appeal. Remington Park's board of stewards ruled on the cases in early October and sent them to the commission to assess penalties for the positive “frog juice” tests.
