The Shoe Is On The Other Foot


Kentucky’s new policy of having only commission vets administer race day lasix is a positive step forward.  However, having only commission vets administer race day lasix to non lasix horses which are tattooed, bear markings and should be accompanied by someone employed by the trainer of record, does not leave much room for such a mistake.  How did this happen?  Will we be told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?  The responsibility for insuring that horses on the lasix program are administered lasix and those horses that are not on the program are not administered lasix has shifted from the trainer to the racing commission.  What body will punish the racing commission for errors in this area as was the case when that responsibility rested on the trainer?
