How about criminal ankle bracelets and confined to the track barn 24 hrs for the two convicted for 5 yrs.

Two 12 hour shifts.  Mucking stalls. And wheel barreling their work to the outdoor pile.

But.. they have to...eat it all.

Back stretch workers do what the boss says.  As far as private vets, not sure how you police that. They get all drugs from a central depot? Wont change those that want to cheat. Testing quick as possible would good. If one continues to allow any drugs, immediate testing would be good if even possible.

Proof is in the pudding.  Those who figured it out:    ALL the superfecta horses in this year's derby have run lasix free their entire careers.

Not sure I follow totally. Lasix free is a great start. I've seen enough where maybe not !00 percent drug free. Maybe its baby steps. Nationwide industry standard enforcer might help level it.

The first 6 finishers are Lasix free in every race, of course we don't know if they use lasix in their works.

I would like to see it in all 2 yr old and 3 yr old races in the next step to get rid of lasix like somebody said baby steps

why do top trainers have 2 yr olds race with lasix in their 1st race or 1st 2 races and other 2 yr olds  without lasix .

I suggest we start asking them and get it out in the open, Why. are some bleeders , it could be used to mask something

else. I hear a trainer say I race with Lasix because everybody else does, what B.S. So it is used for Performance enhancing right !

use it to level the playing field is what I hear. Most of the rest of the World are Lasix free, I'm not saying drug free ,Lasix free !

I listed the 7 runners who have  raced with lasix on the 2021 2's thread and  that is easier to count then the 13 who have

never raced with lasix in any race. I'll be watching the Preakness  to see who is entered.

One of the reasons for Lasix 48 hours before race is the diuretic eliminates body fluids and runner carries less water weight

I remember you saying that years ago. 
I have never heard a trainer say that for the reason, have you,

Do you think in the 1700's they used Alfalfa for that, it's a diuretic , makes them pee a lot.
