Friday Show Presented By Woodbine: Looking Back At Breeders’ Cup, Ahead To HISA

What are the takeaways from the embarrassing mistakes made at the Breeders’ Cup world championships’ Future Stars Friday program when Modern Games was removed from wagering pools and then allowed to run for purse money only in the Grade 1 Juvenile Turf at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in Del Mar, Calif., on Nov. 5?

Was this simply a human error or something compounded by ill-preparedness, faulty communications and regulations not in step with modern technology?

To help answer some of those questions, Pat Cummings of the Thoroughbred Idea Foundation joins publisher Ray Paulick and editor-in-chief Natalie Voss in this week’s edition of the Friday Show to discuss what could have been done differently and would should be done going forward to avoid a similar occurrence. The mistake had a multi-million impact on horseplayers.

The trio also discuss the just-released draft of anti-doping and medication control rules from the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. How will medication policies differ under the Authority, which is scheduled to be active by July 1, 2022?

The Woodbine Star of the Week is Pink Lloyd, the seven-time Sovereign Award winner who won his 25th career stakes race last weekend at the grand old age of 9.
