RSS Feeds Wednesday, February 18, 2009
February 18, 2009 - At a regularly-scheduled meeting last week, the New Mexico Racing Commission will on March 1 begin prohibiting the use of most anabolic steroids.
he use of four of them will be restricted on that date, including Winstrol, Equipoise, Testosterone and Nandrolone. Any horse that requires the administration of any of the restricted medications to recover from illness or injury after March 1 may be placed on the Track’s Veterinarian List for monitoring.
Once the horse is determined to be under the threshold levels set for such medications the horse will be allowed to resume racing in New Mexico. Violation of the threshold levels established for any of the above listed medications will be considered a class 3 medication violation. Penalty phase for violation of the rule will commence 90 days after March 1. Currently Winstrol, Equipoise, Testosterone and Nandrolone are federally controlled substances.
his means that the veterinarian who prescribes the medications must properly record and document any administration of the medications. This will act to further control the administration of the four medications to racing horses. The New Mexico Racing Commission recommends horsemen consult with their vets regarding this rule change.
