The Chemical Horse, 2nd edition

Jane Allin’s groundbreaking report on the doping of racehorses — “The Chemical Horse” — has been revised to update its citations.

Allin’s update coincides with the US House Subcommittee Hearing of the Horse Racing Integrity Act which would establish an anti-doping agency to oversee all horse racing (for an interim period anyway) to include Quarter Horse, Standardbred and Thoroughbred racing.

Out of that group Thoroughbred racing in particular has demonstrated it cannot and/or will not police itself. It has been given many decades to do so, leaving behind a trail of injuries, broken horses and death, during training and racing.

We believe it must, and ultimately will, come to an end because the gamblers who sustain it and make it all possible are leaving in droves. They will not be replaced. There is absolutely nothing appealing about horse racing to America’s up and coming generations.
