A Cap on How Big ‘Big Brown’ Can Get

Four’s the Limit for Thoroughbred Gear


An interesting story came over the AP wire recently, with the New York State Racing and Wagering Board passing a proposal “allowing one of four types of steroids at a time used on a horse,” which also had set concentration limits for the drugs.

Now the guidelines will have to be evaluated by David “Pat the Bat” Paterson, governor of New York State, then they are sent to the Department of State for more evaluation, which includes a 45-day public comment period.

How would Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig react if the Player’s Association came up with a proposal such as this? (“The MLBPA promises to ensure the integrity of the game by limiting the following amounts of anabolic steroid use by their members: Testosterone (200 mg per week), Deca-Durobolin (200 mg per week), Anadrol (150 mg per week) and Dianabol (50 mg per week).) Not so sure that the commish would be thrilled, but it would regulate the game and make it an even playing field, wouldn’t it?
