Murray Rojas has been sentenced to 27 months in a federal prison after the former trainer was found guilty of misbranding drugs and illegally administering race day medication to horses at Penn National Race Course back in 2013.

In 2017, Rojas, 53, was found guilty in a U.S. District Court on 14 counts of causing a prescription animal drug to be misbranded and conspiracy to commit misbranding. Trial evidence showed backdated invoices in attempts to conceal the sale and race day administration of drugs Rojas directed veterinarians to give to horses in her care. Hollywood Casino at Penn National Racecourse ejected the trainer in July 2017. Her husband Eduardo continues to train on the circuit. She will be required to do two years of supervised release following her release from prison.

One of the best articles on the state of emergency of our industry. Hits the nail on the head. If we want to save racing we must band together and actively work to save it. If we want the industry to die...we can continue with what we're doing.
