The owners of the mares Classic Martine and Frau Blucher have been informed that their horses will not be allowed to participate in any races at tracks owned by Jeff Gural unless they remove the horse from Chris Oakes’ stable. The ownership groups, which, in both cases, include Oakes’ wife Sue, have refused to do so.

Up until this year, Oakes was banned from overnight races at the Gural tracks but was allowed to participate in races that involved staking payments. But when Oakes was hit with a positive for the Class 3 drug Tripelennamine late last year by the Pennsylvania Harness Commission Gural extended the ban to all races.
