Edited, Combined Sources –Jason Servis was sentenced to a maximum four-year prison term Wednesday for his part in the widespread doping conspiracy that occurred in US racing in 2020.
Servis, 66, broke down in tears when the sentence was handed down in court on Wednesday [July 26].
Servis pleaded guilty in connection with his role in the distribution of adulterated and misbranded performance-enhancing drugs intended for horses he trained – including Maximum Security.
“No words can express how remorseful and sorry I am for the decisions I’ve made and the hurt I’ve caused my wife and others,” said Servis as he addressed the court.
Alongside fellow trainer Jorge Navarro, sentenced to five years in 2021, Servis is the highest-profile name to be charged as a result of the federal crackdown on horse doping in March, 2020.
