Wow Irish racing authorities are taking a very strong stance here, banning for life every horse given any prohibitive substance.

It's too bad the USA can't get their act together and make a stand like this!

I think this is a pro active approach by the vets.

About time... I've often wondered how some vets avoid getting sanctioned or losing their credentials for stuff like prescribing meds for healthy horses who don't have certain conditions, but use it for performance enhancement.  If vet organizations would start policing their own ranks better, some of these issues would diminish and there'd be fewer dead horses.  I'd like to see it overseen at a level above the NAARV to take out the conflict of interest issues. It would be better if the national vet credentialing agency become the overseer - more objectivity.
