The Louisiana State Racing Commission enters day two of meetings on Friday to hear the appeals of eight trainers who have had horses test positive for the powerful painkiller, Dermorphin. These are the first public hearings on Dermorphin, which has been discovered in several states this year.
Ray Paulick is on the scene in New Orleans and will be continuing to report the developments during Friday's hearings.
The commission is expected to hear from four more trainers today.
