Urgent Notice

The Louisiana State Racing Commission (LSRC) adopted Uniform Medication Rules at a meeting held August 24, 2015.

The rules include changes to Title 35 Sections 1505, 1787, and 1725.

Section 1725 specifies that we will follow the “List of Controlled Therapeutic Medications” published by the Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI).

The rule changes are effective September 20, 2015 and will include a transitional period where the new drug thresholds will NOT trigger a positive test call until November 15, 2015.  The commission will notify trainers when they have a test that will cause a positive after November 15, 2015.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Any test that would have been a positive prior to the rule change will still be a positive during the transitional period.

The ARCI “Controlled Therapeutic Medication Schedule for Horses” is available on our website and at our offices.
