The Red Mile has announced that it has resolved all differences with trainers Jan Johnson, Bob McIntosh, Jim Arledge and Joe Seekman.

The Red Mile is glad that a resolution could be reached and wants to make sure that there is no question regarding the conduct of these four trainers.

The Red Mile has reviewed the laboratory reports from the University of Pennsylvania Equine Toxicology and Research Laboratories for the horses for each of the four trainers whose horses were involved and confirmed that each of the reports was negative. The Red Mile has concluded and is pleased to report that none of the trainers’ horses had any illegal substances in their blood.

Based upon these findings, there should not be any suggestion that any of the trainers were involved in any wrongdoing. Jan Johnson, Bob McIntosh, Jim Arledge and Joe Seekman have been respected and successful trainers of standardbred horses for many years and will be welcome back to the Red Mile in 2009. Each of the trainers has confirmed their plans to return to Grand Circuit racing in 2009 and we look forward to their participation.
