This is not Lasix, but I think it is a good step towards zero drugs in race horses.

I've been watching the tweets - I'm sorry they did not let Roman's speak.

Supporters of the new rule said that the provision would allow the committee to support a rollback of the ban if other states do not pass similar rules and the prohibition leads to weaker racing on the Kentucky circuit
