The New Jersey Racing Commission has released the 2011 report of equine testing results for tracks in that state.

For the year just ended, there were a total of 18,777 blood and urine tests performed for prohibited substances at standardbred tracks. Of that number, 25 positive tests, or .0013 per cent of the total samples taken, resulted in positive findings. The breakdown was 11 for Flunixin, two for Stanozolol, two for Boldenone, one TCO2, one for Testosterone, seven for lasix (Salix) and one for Zomepirac.

These statistics include both Freehold and the Meadowlands Racetrack. The breakdown for each track was 16 positives from 10,536 tests at Freehold (or .0015 per cent) and nine from 8,291 tests at the Meadowlands (or .0010 per cent).

Out of competition testing for EPO was done on 51 New Jersey horses in 2011, with no positives. Of the 4,032 Blood Gas TCO2 tests done, there was one positive.
