Winning Horse Test Positive for Meth at Prairie Meadows

A Prairie Meadows racehorse that won the race tested positive for meth. On May 29, a horse called Drag Malibu was drug tested immediately after winning the third race of the day.

“The horse had trace amounts of methamphetamine in his body when the horse ran in the race,” said Brian Ohorilko, administrator of the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.

Ohorilko noted that while they encounter positive drug tests a few times a year, a horse being positive for meth is RARE.

The groom, who treats the horse before and after the race, tested positive for meth, according to the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.

As a result of the tiny quantities on his hands, Drag Malibu tested positive for meth.

“The groom had put a tongue tie on the horse and it’s very reasonable to assume based on the level of methamphetamine detected, that’s probably how the horse tested positive,” Ohorilko said.
