Trainer and Groom Suspended In New York Drugging Case BELMONT PARK, Elmont, L. I., N. Y.. May 10. — Trainer Paul Greco and groom Anthony Hurley have been suspended for 90 and 30 days, respectively, by the stewards of The Jockey Club, following the discovery of benzedrine in the urinalysis of the horse Haberdashery after he won the eighth race at Jamaica, April 26. This is the first stimulation case, of the New York season. The purse was forfeited and awarded to Shoes, first; Preceder, second, and Eugarp, third. The official ruling follows: "Trainer Paul Greco is suspended for 90 days and the groom, Anthony Hurley, for 30 days. Both are denied admission to the grounds during the period of their suspensions. The horses under Grecos care may be started when transferred to a licensed trainer approved by the stewards. Part of Grecos suspension may be attributed to the fact that hypodermic needles were found in his possession at his stable, contrary to Rul 216 H, although there is no evidence that the hypodermic was used in this particular case."
