‘Most’ back ban

THE MAJORITY of stakeholders in local horse racing are on board with the Barbados Turf Club’s (BTC) plan to ban all steroids from the sport.

This disclosure has come from BTC’s chief executive officer Rosette Peirce with the ban slated to take effect from July pending the final decision of the BTC’s directors.

She told WEEKEND SPORT the feedback was extremely positive when the Turf Club met with the stakeholders at a meeting in the Incitatus Lounge in the grandstand recently.

“I would say the response was surprising because of all the chatter I had heard before the meeting, a lot of people seemed to have concerns that the whole steroid thing was going a bit too far and it would stop horses from coming here for Gold Cup but a lot of those concerns were put to rest at the meeting.”
