UK's BHA Seeks Tougher Stance On Steroids
At Tuesday's executive council meeting of the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities in Paris, there was a reiteration that "There is no place for anabolic steroids in horse racing either in or out of training." According to telegraph.co.uk, the statement was made as racing nations, among them Great Britain, Australia & New Zealand, continue to tighten up regulations surrounding the use of anabolic steroids and create harmonisation of the rules. The British Horseracing Authority's Jamie Stier revealed: "Britain already meets the minimum standards on the use of anabolic steroids, but we have committed to exceed those where possible. We will work through a consultation process looking specifically at the therapeutic use of steroids and tightening those controls."
