Federal Legislation Banning Medication in Racing Introduced

Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) and Congressman Ed Whitfield (R-KY) have introduced the Interstate Horseracing Improvement Act of 2011.  Its expressed purpose is “to prohibit the use of performance-enhancing drugs in horseracing.”  The bill amends the Interstate Horseracing Act (IHA).  By including the bill within the IHA, it applies the new prohibitions and requirements to any race subject to an interstate wager under the provisions of the IHA.  In effect, this means nearly every race in the country. Read More
