Reports indicate that trainer Richard Banca was arrested on Monday (March 9) and released after posting a $200,000 personal recognizance bond for his part in the doping scandal that originally saw 27 indicted.

According to the report by Bill Finley in Thursday's (March 12) Thoroughbred Daily News, Banca's farm in Middletown, N.Y., was searched on Monday and the FBI found a number of illegal substances and handwritten notes with instructions on how to administer those drugs. The allegations charge that Banca, and previously indicted Louis Grasso and Conor Flynn, worked together to illegally administer the drugs to horses.

The report stated that Flynn was Banca's assistant and that Grasso supplied Flynn with adulterated and misbranded performance-enhancing drugs to administer or deliver to others for use.
