The MTHA Board of Directors Dec. 10 voted to increase the fee charged for administration of race-day Lasix to bring it in line with several other Mid-Atlantic racing jurisdictions.
The fee for Lasix, which is administered by regulatory veterinarians, has been $20 at Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course. It will increase to $25 effective Jan. 1 at Laurel.
According to a regional sampling, the fee at three New York Racing Association tracks—Aqueduct Racetrack, Belmont Park and Saratoga Race Course—as well as Parx Racing and Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, is $25. It’s $35 at Monmouth Park and $20 at Delaware Park.
