Eight States Commit to Uniform Drug Rules

In a move supporters believe is a step toward the uniform regulation of medication and drug testing in North American racing, the regulators of eight states in the Northeast region have committed to a uniform medication and drug testing program. The agreement announced on Tuesday, March 12, was spearheaded by the Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association (THA). It represents a dramatic change in medication regulation and testing and the THA believes it could pave the way for national uniformity. The participating states--New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Massachusetts--will implement the Mid Atlantic Uni­form Medication Program.
