Trainer Ron Ellis has been banned from entering any horses in the Breeders' Cup world championships this fall after being sanctioned by the event for a positive drug test involving his horse that finished second in last year's BC Sprint. Breeders' Cup officials said Tuesday that the ban also applies to the horse Masochistic, who tested positive for a trace amount of an anabolic steroid after last year's event at Santa Anita. The horse was disqualified from the Sprint and his purse earnings were redistributed. This year's two day world championships will be November 3-4 at Del Mar north of San Diego.
