Driver Mike Stevenson has been suspended for five years after a positive test for a controlled substance
earlier this month.
According to the Maritime Provinces Harness Racing Commission, Stevenson's infraction occurred on October 1 at Summerside Raceway. When asked for comment by CBC News if he would appeal, Stevenson simply stated, “There is nothing to appeal.”
With more than 1,200 wins in his career, Stevenson was in the midst of a career season with a personal best total of 115 wins from 602 starts. Neither the MPHRC nor Harness Racing PEI would comment.
