NEW JERSEY RACING COMMISSION APPROVES THOROUGHBRED OUT OF COMPETITION TESTING FOR EPO; ALSO APPROVES PRE-RACE TCO2 TESTING

The New Jersey Racing Commission approved on September 17 regulations to conduct, for the first time, out of competition testing for EPO (Epogen) and TCO2 testing in Thoroughbred racehorses competing at the four New Jersey racetracks. These regulations were part of several measures enacted by the Commission for the upcoming Breeders’ Cup World Championships, October 26 and 27 at Monmouth Park.

EPO, or Epogen, is a blood doping agent which enhances the red blood cells within racehorses, and has the potential to improve competitive performance. The EPO regulation will have a direct impact on testing produces for the upcoming Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Monmouth Park. Random out of competition EPO testing for horses pre-entered in the Breeders’ Cup World Championships will take place prior to the Breeders’ Cup. Regulators will be contacted in the various jurisdictions and countries to draw blood from the potential competitors.

TCO2 testing measures the total carbon dioxide level in a racehorse. Excessive TCO2 indicates that an alkalizing agent,  commonly referred to as a “milkshake,” was administered to the racehorse for the purpose of affecting athletic performance. During this year’s Breeders’ Cup, the TCO2 tests will be conducted at random approximately 45 minutes before post time at the receiving barn. Blood will be drawn pre-race and tested post race by New Jersey Racing Commission veterinarians.

The proposed out of competition testing rules were open for public comment by the Commission on July 16. Following the conclusion of the public comment period on September 14, the Commissioners agreed to adopt the new laws. The new regulations have been forwarded to the Attorney General’s office for legal review, and then will become effective upon publication in the New Jersey Register on October 15.

The NJRC also approved the following rules for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships:

    * A net pool pricing agreement was approved whereby wagering on the Breeders’ Cup World Championships in Canada will be placed into the common betting pool.
    * All horses will run uncoupled in the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, regardless of common trainers and owners.
    * Jockeys competing in the Breeders’ Cup World Championships will be permitted to wear advertising on their riding pants subject to NJSEA approval.
