Anabolic Steroids Rule Released
The Australian Racing Board (ARB) has today released its new rule banning anabolic steroids from 1 November and enforced from 1 May, 2014.
The major elements of the rule are as follows and vary in some notable aspects from the policy position announced by the ARB on 16th September, 2013:
“The ban on anabolic steroids has been endorsed by the majority of racing participants who look to the future of the industry,” ARB CEO Peter McGauran said today.
“Fortunately, modern feeding and training techniques in conjunction with developments in veterinary science have significantly diminished the use of anabolic steroids to the point where their application is the exception rather than the rule.”
“However, anabolic steroids which give an unfair competitive advantage have no place in an open, transparent and forward -looking racing industry.” Mr McGauran said.
New AR.15D applicable to unregistered horses and new AR.178H applicable to registered racehorses are attached with the several consequential amendments to the Australian Rules of Racing published on the ARB website.
