N. J. Stewards Suspend TrainerThomas Harraway Urinalysis of Star Ice Contains Drug in Nature of Amphetamine GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden, N. J., May- 7. — Trainer Thomas P. Harraway has been suspended by the stewards following the report that the urinalysis of the three-year-old Star Ice, which he saddled to win ,the fourth race, Monday, May 4, contained a drug of the nature of amphetamine. Har-raways suspension will continue until the New Jersey Racing Commission makes a disposition on the case. Also suspended along with the veteran conditioner were grooms Victor Keyes and Clarence Jackson, who were charged with the care of the horse. Meanwhile, all horses trained by Harraway have been barred awaiting the outcome of the case. Star Ice, who races for L. S. Thompson, led from start to finish to win by a neck from J. J. Colandos Milties Mite in the 6-furlong race. River Divide Farms White Label was third, C. M. Klines Night Spy fourth and Hartford Stables McDermott fifth. They have all been moved up and the purse redistributed. It was Star Ices first start of 1959 and first victory of his career. The Arctic Prince colt raced four times last season against some of the better two-year-olds on the New Jersey circuit and was once third and once fourth. In his last start of 1958, he was badly beaten in Atlantic Citys Seashore Stakes.
