Princess Secret (Khozan), winner of the Susan's Girl S. and My Dear Girl S. for owner and trainer Daniel Pita, was denied entry into Friday's GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies after testing positive for a banned substance. An Oct. 26 blood test administered by the Breeders' Cup Out-Of-Competition program turned up the presence of Stanozolol, an anabolic steroid expressly prohibited by Breeders' Cup under its conditions of entry.

According to Breeders' Cup constructs, any horse that tests positive for anabolic steroids or any ARCI-prohibited substances in any out-of-competition sample within six months of participation in the Breeders' Cup is ruled ineligible to participate.

“Breeders' Cup out-of-competition testing is done to the highest world standards and is vital to ensuring the integrity of the World Championships,” said Breeders' Cup President & CEO Drew Fleming. “All horses pre-entered for the Breeders' Cup are subject to our stringent medication and testing protocols and must meet these requirements in order to compete. Breeders' Cup will continue its work to ensure the safety and the integrity of our sport, including our strong support of the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act and other progressive reforms for Thoroughbred racing in the U.S. through our involvement in the Thoroughbred Safety Coalition.”

The field for the Juvenile Fillies now stands at seven.
