Asian Racing Federation Welcomes Kentucky Lasix Ban
The Chairman of the Asian Racing Federation, Dr Koji Sato, has welcomed the move by the Kentucky

forward for Kentucky itself this development carries the prospect of having wider influence in promoting
drug-free racing in North America. Kentucky plays such a prominent role within US racing and breeding that
I am hopeful that other States will follow the example which has now been set by the Kentucky Racing
“It is the Asian Racing Federation’s strongly–held belief that drug-free racing is essential. Ensuring the
welfare of our horses, achieving a level playing field for competitors, keeping the trust and confidence of
the public, protecting horses and jockeys from injury, promoting the strength and soundness of the breed -
these are all very powerful considerations and they all point in the one direction, namely that horses must
race free from the influence of medication.“
