Dermorphin is made from the secretions of Waxy Monkey Tree Frog and said to be 40x more powerful than morphine. Racehorses are testing positive for dermorphin at tracks around the U.S. The horse racing industry refuses to take any sort of real action against it. Image by Afulki on Flickriver.

Independent lab tests have confirmed that all nine horses that originally tested positive in May for Dermorphin were indeed given that illegal painkiller.

Vince Mares, the executive director of the New Mexico Racing Commission, told the Albuquerque Journal that the three trainers responsible for the drug positives will be subject to an administrative hearing and could face suspensions, fines, and criminal charges. Mares added that the cases are being forwarded to Attorney General Gary King’s office for possible criminal prosecution.

Jeffrey Heath Reed trained five of the nine horses that tested positive. The positive tests occurred after qualifying races for the Ruidoso Futurity on May 25. Four other horses, two each trained by John Bassett and Carlos Sedillo, also tested positive.

In addition, two of Reed’s horses tested positive for stanozolol, an a synthetic anabolic steroid. Stanozolol is used to build muscle and increase red blood cell production and bone density. Jess A Zoomin, one of Reed’s horses that tested positive, broke down Aug. 17 at Ruidoso Downs and had to be euthanized. Jess A Zoomin had posted the second-fastest qualifying time for the upcoming All American Futurity.

The test results are in. They have been analyzed twice. Call the police already. Horse abuse. Call in the FBI. Betting fraud.

People are in jail for possessing half a joint. Yet horse racing can continue to defraud the betting public with secretly juiced up horses killing them like they did Jess A Zoomin. Bust these criminals and send them to j – a – i – l. –Editor
