The Chairman of the International Federation of Horse Racing Authorities (IFHA), Mr. Louis Romanet, has welcomed the Australian Racing Board (ARB) announcement of a total ban on the use of anabolic steroids both in and out of competition.
“I welcome and applaud this announcement by the ARB stating a total ban on the use of anabolic steroids both in and out of competition” stated Louis Romanet, IFHA Chairman.
"The ARB is to be commended for this historical decision. Additionally, I look forward to further discussion on this matter among all IFHA member countries to further two key objectives of the IFHA - to coordinate and harmonize the rules of the member-countries regarding breeding, racing & wagering and to ensure the quality and fairness of racing in the interest of both the breeding and the public”.
