Lasix-free Breeders’ Cup races could prompt wider action

Posted By

The decision by the Breeders’ Cup to ban the use of Lasix for its year-end races is likely to embolden other organizations that are against the raceday use of the drug, according to officials.

The ban will be applied to the five races for 2-year-olds in the 2012 championships and all 15 races for the 2013 event.

“Breeders’ Cup can obviously decide what rules they want to adopt for their event,” Bellocq said. “The fact remains that the [June conference] clearly showed that this is not a black-and-white issue. We’re still focused on working with all these groups on a policy that’s best for U.S. racing,” Remi Bellocq, the executive director of the National Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association.

Tough sentences by China for tainted pork

Posted By

A Chinese court on Monday handed out long sentences, including a suspended death penalty, who were involved in the production and sale of pork tainted with a poisonous chemical, the official Xinhua news agency said.

The pigs were fed clenbuterol for producing lean meat that sells for a premium in China, which is the world’s largest producer and consumer of pork.

“The accused, however, defended themselves by pointing out the loopholes in pork processing companies and government supervision. They also argued there was no relevant case in which consumers got ill as a result of taking in clenbuterol-tainted meat,” the report said.
