Casse: Kentucky, Louisiana Need To ‘Get On Board’ With Clenbuterol Restrictions

Hall of Fame trainer Mark Casse shared his thoughts on this year’s new clenbuterol restrictions with the Thoroughbred Daily News on Tuesday. First, he said he was pleased with the new policies implemented at Woodbine this year, and lauded the Mid-Atlantic region, Oaklawn, and Gulfstream Park for adding restrictions for 2021.

“As a result, we have seen almost none of the nonsensical form reversals that had haunted us in the past at Woodbine in 2020,” Casse told the TDN.

Still, there are several major racing jurisdictions that have yet to change their policies, Casse lamented.

“My question is, what is taking Kentucky and Louisiana so long to get on board?” he said. “I am very disappointed that we ran the recent Breeders’ Cup series at Keeneland with the same Clenbuterol rules that have failed us in the past. In life and horse racing, there are not many things I am certain of, but one thing I am positive about is the need for the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act to be passed by the Senate. Because only when we have national uniformity of medication rules will inequities of this patchwork quilt that has plagued the sport be solved.”
