“State racing commissions, with few exceptions, do a lousy job of identifying cheaters, investigating them and adjudicating them,” Irwin said. “Reasons include lack of will, lack of sufficient funding, lack of qualified personnel and failure to prevail in court against cheaters. So cheaters cheat, sometimes they get caught, but too many that do wriggle off the hook.”
Irwin said he preferred to buy and breed horses in Europe and other foreign countries, where horses do not race on drugs. ..............................
 
When it hits you that 24 horses die a week on American racetracks, you’d think if this was happening to human athletes, it would be an outrage,” Udall said after listening to the testimony. “Horse racing has reached a level of corruption and exploitation that has to stop.”
