Horse Racing Chief To Speak To Congress About Steroids

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The president of the National Thoroughbred
Racing Association will be testifying to Congress later this month
as part of its investigation into steroids in sports.

Alexander M. Waldrop, president and CEO of the sport's governing
body, has been asked to appear Feb. 27 in front of the House Energy
and Commerce Committee's panel on commerce, trade and consumer
protection.

Also appearing will be representatives from professional
baseball, football, basketball and hockey, as well as collegiate
and high school sports.

Team sports - particularly baseball - have been under the most
scrutiny for their steroid procedures. But horse racing also has
recently been working to adopt new rules banning the use of illegal
drugs for its athletes.
