The Texas Racing Commission has approved the use of 31 "Horse Wizard" pari-mutuel wagering machines at Lone Star Park for the remainder of the fall meet that ends Oct. 31.
An examination of 1,450 horses stabled at Lone Star Park revealed no evidence of vesicular stomititis, a contagious disease that was discovered in three horses in southwest Texas.
Lone Star Park has ended its relationship with the Southern Racing Cooperative due to a possible conflict of interest in the future.
Two horses that raced at Lone Star Park April 13 tested positive for erythropoietin (EPO) antibodies, which brings the total number of horses to test positive in Texas this year to eight.
