New Jersey Racing Commission to limit steroid use in horsesAccording to officials, the New Jersey Racing Commission has proposed a rule for the establishment of a testing program and strict penalties to inhibit the usage of androgenic-anabolic steroids in thoroughbred race horses. The rule would be very much in line with what is already been in practice in more than 20 states in the last few years.

It is believed that the strict penalties, which will be enforceable by the proposed rule, would go to a great extent for inhibiting the usage of anabolic steroids and adding fairness to horse racing. It is considered that this proposed rule would be providing a new and fair dimension to the game of horse racing, which has been in dark clouds after recent reports of steroid usage in the game.
