Samples collected from horses that breezed at the Fasig-Tipton Calder under-tack show Feb. 18 contained no performance-enhancing medication, test results showed.
The sale company said urine and/or blood tests were performed on 24 2-year-olds by Dr. Richard Sams of Ohio State University, and the testing was then evaluated by Dr. Thomas Tobin of the University of Kentucky.
Tobin, a Fasig-Tipton adviser, said he compared analytical results from the tests with medication reports in a repository. "The comparison established that no test sample analyzed by Dr. Sams contained any undeclared therapeutic or any other potentially performance-enhancing drug or medication."
Similar testing will be performed after a second under-tack show slated for Sunday. The Fasig-Tipton Calder sale will be held Tuesday.
