California has become the latest state to enact medication reforms developed by the Racing Medication and Testing Consortium and adopted as model rules by the Association of Racing Commissioners International.
The Maryland Racing Commission voted Feb. 19 to adopt a uniform equine medication, penalty, and testing program proposed for Thoroughbred and Standardbred racetracks throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
With regulators and industry groups leading the charge, many horse racing stakeholders believe sweeping medication reform could become a reality in early 2013.
