On Tuesday, August 1, the Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey issued a statement in regard to the Meadowlands Racetrack’s decision to bar the entry of $2-million earner Lady Shadow.

The Meadowlands announced on Saturday, July 29 that Lady Shadow would not be able to race at the East Rutherford, New Jersey track due to a post-race test at Harrah’s Philadelphia on May 28 which came back positive for Clenbuterol.

The contents of the SBOANJ’s release appears below.

The SBOA, on behalf of the horsemen of New Jersey, believes it must address the Meadowlands Racetrack's decision to ban Lady Shadow from the Lady Liberty Stakes this Saturday, August 5, 2017. While the SBOA applauds and supports the efforts to protect the integrity of the sport, it cannot agree with this decision.

Lady Shadow had a Class 3 overage for a therapeutic medication. The ruling is under appeal, with a stay granted by the Pennsylvania Racing Commission. The SBOA believes Lady Shadow's owners are entitled to due process and no action should be taken pending the outcome of the legal proceedings.
