An interesting story has surfaced in the horse racing world, and it has caught the attention of PETA.

A racehorse tested positive for meth after winning a race at the MGM Northfield Park in Ohio last fall. The horse, Gardy’s Legacy, submitted to a blood test after the race and tested positive for D-methamphetamine.

The positive test was a Class 1 Category A offense, according to TMZ Sports.

The horse’s trainer, Samuel Schillaci, was suspended for one year by the Ohio State Racing Commission and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.

PETA caught wind of the story and “light punishment” for Schillaci, which led to a statement being issued requesting the trainer be permanently banned from the sport.
