New Jersey regulates steroids use in horsesJust like the new rule proposed by New Jersey Racing Commission executive director Frank Zanzuccki for standardbreds, a similar rule was proposed regarding the testing program and penalties for anabolic-androgenic steroids use in thoroughbreds.

Last Monday, officials of the New Jersey Racing Commission proposed that thoroughbred racehorses’ use of anabolic steroids must be banned. It could be permitted at very low specified levels, provided it cannot affect the horse’s performance in a race. Four anabolic steroids, namely, boldenone, nandrolone, stanozolol and testosterone, in trace amounts below 200 picograms/ milliliter are approved for use in horses. Trainers caught violating this policy could have their license suspended and a hefty fine will be imposed.

According to the commission, the new rule could be a positive deterrent on the use of anabolic-androgenic steroids. It will possible reduce the number of competing horses with anabolic steroids in their system.

It would help promote fairness in wagering, thus result in promotion of horseracing. It could significantly improve the racetrack attendance rate as well as the number of those who wager.

This new rule would be similar to those implemented in more than 20 states in recent years.
