Quote of the Day

"The best menu for a horse is hay, water and oats"
-John B. Simoni, New York Racing and Wagering Board.

These comments were made with reference to the ban on certain type of anabolic steroids for Thoroughbred and Standardbred Horses in New York State effective January 1, 2009. There will be no grace period and apparently the Racing and Wagering Board will be tough in enforcing the ban.

I certainly hope they're tough. I'd really like to see a rule that forces horses out of the barn of any trainer who gets a suspension for anything other than trace percentages.

Racing has to realize that steroids will ruin the integrity of the sport and alienate any potential new fans.

It's time to clean up!!
