Maryland Tracks Join Coalition to Ban Race-Day Lasix Use

The Stronach Group announced today, April 18, that Pimlico and Laurel will join the coalition of racetracks across the country working to ban race-day use of Lasix. This new initiative is committed to phasing out the use of Furosemide (Lasix) over the next three years. Starting January 1, 2020, two-year-old horses will not be allowed to be treated with Lasix within 24 hours of a race.

Kudos that the Maryland Horse Council and The Equiery also had a presence to support the working horse and sane and sensible regulations that support the welfare of the working horse. From school horses to guided trail ride horses, from pony ride ponies to Grand Prix school masters, from produce wagons to wedding and tourism carriages, the career options for the "working horse" are varied and a critical part of the fabric of our equestrian community and horse industry. Well done.

Thank you all for attending. I was appalled at the treatment of the Lambert Family and their horses and stunned that the City of Frederick allowed it.

It was heartening to see so many people and organizations turn out to support this cherished Frederick City tradition 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
