Rojas found guilty on 14 felony counts of authorizing performance-enhancing drugs at Pennsylvania track

Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania’s Horse Racing Commission today revoked the licenses of trainer Murray Rojas following her June 30 conviction by a federal jury on 14 felony counts of administering drugs to horses on race days.

“The commission commends the United States Attorney’s Office on its successful prosecution of Ms. Rojas,” said Thomas Chuckas, director of the commission’s Bureau of Thoroughbred Horse Racing. “The commission will continue to exercise its statutory authority to test race horses for evidence of performance-enhancing substances.”

The commission noted that it will continue to take appropriate licensure action against those caught violating the law and regulations that govern horse racing in Pennsylvania.
