I'll Take 5 Days Please

In Bermuda, after a few horses tested positive recently the President of the racing club talked about strengthening rules to make sure it does not happen again. But the racers had a vote and are now asking not for tougher rules, but for easier ones.

However, members are now pushing for reforms that some claim are "far more lenient" than the exisiting regulations, such as reducing the fine from $1,000 to $250 and a one-year ban to just five racing days for first time offenders.

They also want to be able to use a pain killer on race day.

Wow, no wonder they don't let the industry police themselves.

h/t to Standardbred Canada.
