Concern over spike in drug violations
The Barbados Turf Club (BTC) is concerned about the spiralling drug infractions over the last eight months.
Chief executive officer of the BTC, Rosette Peirce, told THE NATION she was alarmed by the number of positive drug tests since last December.
“There have been a few too many. We have had too many in too short a space of time. I am definitely concerned.
“There are some that are still pending adjudication, so I wouldn’t be able to speak to those but in an overall sense, we are concerned about the high number of positive drug reports we have received.
“Not only trainers, jockeys, grooms, everyone has got be educated. We are all in it together. It is no good for the sport. We have all got to do our part to clean it up,” she said. (MK/LY)
