In Lexington, Kentucky’s tough out-of-competition testing rule was due to be voted on today, with thoroughbred horsemen calling for a delay on grounds that, “Whenever you do something like that, you’re bound to put together something that’s just not going to work.”

But State Senator Damon Thayer, a member of Kentucky’s Equine Drug Research Council, responded by saying he thought it “important to send the message that we care about integrity issues in racing in Kentucky year-round,” not just for Breeders Cup and other special races.

The proposal calls for penalties of from five to 10 years suspension and a fine of up to $50,000.
