New York: Corticosteroid Rule Reinstated

During a meeting held Sept. 9, the New York State Gaming Commission approved a rule that will require a trainer of a claimed horse to provide records of any administrations of corticosteroids to the horse's new owner and trainer within 48 hours of the claim.

According to the Blood-Horse, Monday's ruling reinstates an earlier rule that expired March 10. Documents from the meeting stated that the rule was originally permitted to lapse while “trainers adapted to another emergency rule, which required them to submit a record of every corticosteroid joint injection to the commission within 48 hours of injection.”

Gaming commission officials said during a meeting Monday that the new records will allow the new trainer to “make more fully informed decisions about veterinary care.”
