Horse racing panel to hear comments on drugs

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission will
meet Tuesday afternoon to hear public comments on a proposal to
phase out the use of an anti-bleeding drug on race days.
Kentucky would become the first to take the action against the
drug, which is banned internationally.
The ban would initially apply to 2-year-olds, starting next
January, and then to 2- and 3-year-olds starting the following
year. In 2015, the ban would apply to any horse.
The meeting is set for 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EDT at the Capitol Annex
in Frankfort.
