Meadowlands addresses testing concerns
« Return to News
The concern was over the procedure in place for TC02 testing which required the samples be shipped to a lab in California, citing the possibility that there may be deterioration of those samples during the time spent in transportation.
After the onsite testing was done and results were returned to the NJRC from the California lab from that same weekend, those results were compared. That comparison of 35 samples yielded no significant difference and none of the tested samples came at all close to the threshold of what would be considered an overage.
"We continue to work with the NJRC to insure that to the best of our ability horses racing at the Meadowlands are racing on a level playing field," said Meadowlands Chairman Jeff Gural. "After receiving questions about the possibility that shipping the samples to California may be producing inaccurate results we decided to bring our testing equipment down from Tioga to be certain that was not the case."
