The New Jersey Racing Commission’s new medication rules went into effect on Monday, November 3.

Via release, NJRC Chief State Veterinarian Dr. Deborah Lamparter announced that there are 26 medications categorized as Controlled Therapeutic Medications. These medications are permissible only when a racehorse tests below the threshold levels set forth in the RCI Controlled Therapeutic Medication Schedule, Version 2.1.

Trainers and veterinarians should review this schedule. The schedule may be found on the web at Choose Model Rules and Standards and then ARCI Controlled Therapeutic Medication Schedule - V.2.1. Pay particular attention to the dosing specifications for Betamethasone and Dexamethasone.

The threshold level for Betamethasone will decrease from 100pg/ml of plasma or serum to 10pg/ml of plasma or serum.

The threshold level for Dexamethasone will decrease from 100pg/ml of plasma or serum to 5pg/ml of plasma or serum.

The recommended withdrawal time for Clenbuterol will increase to 14 days.

The presence of Clenbuterol will not be allowed in plasma or serum and the threshold level for urine is 140pg/ml.
