The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority’s Anti-Doping and Medication Control Program has been suspended nationwide for 30 days given a March 31 ruling by a judge in the Northern District of Texas Court. The HISA Racetrack Safety Program, which began in July 2022, is not affected by the order.

The ADMC Program includes a prohibition on use of Lasix in races for 2-year-olds and in stakes. The Maryland Jockey Club, which has had a prohibition on Lasix in 2-year-old races and graded stakes for years, announced that Lasix will be permitted in its non-graded stakes in April at Laurel Park.
