On Tuesday (Oct. 30), the Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency issued a pair of notices, one in regard to the use of Levamisole and the other in regard to provincial Exercise-Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage lists.

In regard to Levamisole, the CPMA is reminding veterinarians and racehorse trainers and owners that Levamisole is a prohibited substance in Canada because it metabolizes into aminorex, a prohibited stimulant. Levamisole should not be administered to a racehorse for any reason.

In regard to the provincial EIPH lists, the CPMA notice states that the agency has received an inquiry concerning the requirement for a horse to remain on a provincial EIPH list for 100 days, when the horse moves from one EIPH list to a new province’s EIPH list.

The CPMA has stated that Pari-Mutuel Betting Supervision Regulations require provincial commissions to maintain an up-to-date list of horses that participate in their EIPH program. Any horse on a province’s EIPH list is required to remain on that list for a period of at least 100 days.
