UK Moves On Foreign Raider Drug Concerns

Wednesday, 23rd July 2008

The British Horseracing Authority announced that from 2009 "horses trained overseas must be declared as not having been trained on non-therapeutic substances," reported racingpost.co.uk. The move (which follows recent headline-generating criticism of the present rules by trainer Mark Johnston) "is aimed at clarifying that all overseas runners are subject to the rules already in place for European-trained horses". From January 1, overseas trainers "will have to declare that their horses have not been trained on non-therapeutic substances or face a ban from running in British races".
