Conditioner Adolfo Macias has been suspended 90 days following the search of his barn at a Central Kentucky training center. The story was originally reported by the DRF based on a ruling issued by Kentucky stewards. Macias waived his right for a formal hearing on the suspension, which will begin Dec. 1 and run through Feb. 28.

The search, which was conducted July 28, turned up “injectable medications, hypodermic syringes, and needles.” The search took place about three weeks after the Macias-trained Enraged (Big Blue Kitten) won a maiden claimer at Ellis Park, after which he tested positive for dexamethasone. Enraged was disqualified and Macias was fined $500.
