Bob Baffert isn’t the only legendary horse racing trainer in hot water over substances found in animals.

The California Horse Racing Board (CHRB) served Ron McAnally a complaint after one of his horses tested positive for CBD, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

CBD is a prohibited substance and carries a Class 1 penalty because it is not specifically listed in a drug category within the CHRB, according to the newspaper. McAnally could face some kind of disqualification, suspension or fine if it is not reclassified.

CHRB spokesman Mike Marten told the Los Angeles Times the organization will ask those making the ruling to consider CBD a Class 3 violation. The horse in question – Roses and Candy – won a California race in November 2020 but a split sample confirmed the presence of CBD.

His horses have never won the Kentucky Derby, Preakness or Belmont Stakes.
