Indiana Throws the Book at Amoss

The situation made public last week regarding an administrative complaint recommending that trainer Tom Amoss be suspended for 60 days and fined $5,000 for an alleged violation of Indiana medication rules is troubling in many ways.

 

According to the complaint, filed Feb. 24 by Indiana Horse Racing Commission Executive Director Joe Gorajec, a horse trained by Amoss tested positive for the muscle relaxant methorcarbamol after a race Oct. 21 at Hoosier Park.

 

Tom Amoss is not a cheater.

Keeping the vets away would not stop it
As I have stated so many times here.. There needs to be national standards on drugs used in horse racing. As Arthur Hancock stated, there are over 100 drugs that do not even show up on drug screens. No stable vet or personal vet should be allowed near a horse within one week of a race. Only independent VETS should be allowed. And Yes, trainers should be liable for horses that breakdown due to drugs masking injury or lameness. And YES, trainers who make multi millions need to be fined again and banned. We need to get tought or horse racing will be over, forever!
