Please Sign This Petition in Support of Race-Day Lasix and Return It to the Kentucky HBPA by June 1st

The Kentucky HBPA is gathering petitions to present to the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission in support of race-day Lasix at a town hall meeting on June 5th. If you support the race-day use of Lasix, we strongly encourage you to download the appropriate petition (there is one for trainers and one for owners) and send to the Kentucky HBPA no later than next Friday, June 1st.

It does not matter whether you are a Kentucky resident or not - the more signed petitions from horsemen anywhere in the U.S., the better.

furosemide (Salix/Lasix) both as a training aid and as a race-day medication to inhibit Exercise
Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage (bleeding) in race horses."
