Oops. Standardbreds Get the Black Eye

At the recent USTA meeting, the official policy regarding Lasix was to continue using it as a therapeutic medication for bleeders on race days.  Okay, we all probably expected that.

Well news comes today that the Jockey Club updated their Reformed Medication Rules.  One thing of note is they stated that thoroughbred horses should run only when they have no race day medication, including Lasix.

Seems we have a disconnect here.  One thing for sure, on the case of medication, harness racing comes out looking worse.
