Belmont Stakes 2012: Dullahan's Trainer Upset About Detention Barn

I'll Have Another is the main attraction in the 2012 Belmont Stakes thanks to his potential Triple Crown title, but the New York State Racing and Wagering Board is making a splash all on their own right now. They have created a strict drug enforcement rule requiring all participating horses to spend the final three days in a detention barn before the running of the Belmont Stakes on Saturday.

The rule isn't exactly a big hit among the owners and trainers. Dullahan's trainer (Dale Romans) doesn't like the New York Racing Association's decision:

"[The New York State Racing and Wagering Board] thinks we're all crooks," said Romans. "[Horses] are not cars that you can just go and move from one garage to the next.
