Good for Mark Casse to speak out! I agree Clenbuterol isn’t a good drug!

Great job writing it, I wasn’t aware of the way it was used by some trainers.

I was aware of some of the uses but not all of them. Casse did a great job on it for sure!!

CDI is fighting against The Horse Racing Integrity Act . UGH

The final 2019 lobbying reporting required by the U.S. House and Senate has been filed in Washington, D.C., and made public on the U.S. Senate's website.
Reports from Churchill Downs reveal the organization has hired some "big guns" to lobby against the Horseracing Integrity Act, H.R. 1754/S. 1820. The reports reveal Churchill paid $30,000 to Harbinger Strategies for the period of January 1, 2019 - March 31, 2019, for lobbying services by Manny Rossman, a Senior Policy Advisor to former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-MS); Steve Stombres, a Chief of Staff for former U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA); and three additional lobbyists at the firm. 
Adding a second firm in the next quarter named Subject Matter with eleven total lobbyists also at $30,000, Churchill paid a total of $60,000 to the two firms for the period of April 1, 2019 - June 30, 2019, another $60,000 to the two firms for the period of July 1, 2019 - September 30, 2019, and $60,000 more to the same two firms for the period of October 1, 2019 - December 31, 2019
If Churchill Downs continues at the current rate of spending $60,000 per quarter, they'll likely shell out $240,000 this year - primarily to defeat the Horseracing Integrity Act that would end race-day doping, create a uniform national standard for drug testing under the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), and bring integrity back to the sport.
