    NY indictments charge 27 with offenses relating to the administration of illegal PEDS

    Customs and Border Protection in New York ("CBP"), announced the unsealing of four indictments charging 27 individuals with offenses relating to the systematic and covert administration of illegal performance-enhancing drugs ("PEDs") to racehorses competing across the United States and abroad.

    The Indictments unsealed today each allege the shipment and administration of adulterated and misbranded drugs designed to secretly and dangerously enhance the racing performance of horses beyond their natural ability, a dishonest practice that places the lives of affected animals at risk.

    "Over the course of the scheme, participants manufactured, purchased, sold, shipped, delivered, received and administered thousands of units" of performance-enhancing drugs, or PEDs, for use on racehorses, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman wrote in charging documents against 19 of 27 defendants.

    The indicted included 11 trainers, seven veterinarians and nine drug suppliers and distributors, according to Berman.

    "All involved in the cruel and systematic doping of racehorses across the United States and indeed around the world using misbranded, adulated and dangerous performance-enhancing drugs," Berman told reporters in New York.

    "This is the most far-reaching prosecution of racehorse doping in the history of the Department of Justice."

    Should we be shocked that some of the PEDs appear to be manufactured in Australia?
    Do the planes really fly faster coming back from America or?

    This is an excellent read - letter (from five prominent harness horsemen) and response (USTA President)

    http://www.harnesslink.com/News/USTA...semen-s-letter

    The response also contains a link that we all should read, it finishes with

    Times of peril are also times of opportunity. We’re aware, we’re outraged, we’re worried. But we’re also energized as perhaps never before. Now is our chance to do things that probably could not have been done before. The USTA will act. I invite industry stakeholders to join the USTA in developing a comprehensive template that will protect real integrity, support the health and welfare of our horses, and permit the beautiful narrative of horse racing to continue uninterrupted.

    A reader sent me this article from the Thoroughbred Daily News
