The new out-of-competition testing model rule approved by the Association of Racing Commissioners International in December should be on the books soon in Maryland.
The Maryland Racing Commission Jan. 17 approved the rule under emergency provisions. The Delaware Thoroughbred Racing Commission approved the rule at its meeting Jan. 11.
“There is a little more wordsmithing to be done, but no substantive changes,” MRC Executive Director Mike Hopkins said. “We want to include the Prohibited List by reference so we don’t have to (approve changes) over and over again.”
