from Aug 1950 Hoof Beats.

Better Not Chew

C. I. Schilling
Columbus, Ohio

 Hearing under Rule 20, Sect. 4, investigating positive report of the chemist on saliva test from Chief Long following the three‑year‑old Pace at Louisville, Kentucky, June 15, 1950.
 The report of the chemist showed a presence of nicotine and the track veterinarian observed tobacco in taking the  saliva test. Testimony revealed that tobacco had been repeatedly and frequently given the colt by the trainer, caretaker, and starter at the meeting, and that he had, in all probability, been given tobacco at any time the afternoon and evening of his race.
 Inasmuch as nicotine is not defined as a stimulant and is not considered a drug as it results from the general use of tobacco, no penalty is imposed and there is no finding of an "offense" under Rule 20, Sect. 7, but all those connected with this matter are reprimanded for feeding a horse anything that can result in a positive chemical report.

Verrry interesting (as Sgt. Schultz would say).

I wonder what constituted a positive in 1950?  That snippet references Rule 20, Article 4.

Only a reprimand for feeding a "horse anything that can result in a positive chemical report" ... what did you have to do to get suspended?  Just curious.

I've just archived the 1950 USTA By-Laws (two PDF files over two-months-iisues) and there was a previous article by Henry Knauf on Drug positives.

 If anybody is interested in these items contact me by email and I'll send.

The nicotine article by then USTA President Knauf, stated that nicotine was basically caffeine, which offered a stimulating effect.

 Seems to me in recent years there were either some caffeine positives or another generic drug which offered the same effect?

your right about the caffeine stimulant,,,,when you think about it ,,how did they give a horse in 1950 the stimulant,,don,t think it was injectable than,,,and can,t imagine horse would willingly chomp down on the chew,,don,t think anyone is suppose to swallow the chew

When I initally read Mr. Knauf's monthly column (The President Speaks) to the membership?

 I sorta chuckled and wondered what Mr. Knauf would think if he was aware of the methods and penalties imposed today (2010).

 I'm sure it would have been difficult for the 1950 Mr. Knauf to even grasp the subject of "Arm and Hammer" Wink

Sure they will.  We trained horses for an old farmer who would take the chew out of his mouth and give it to the horses, which they took willingly.  He claimed it killed worms
