New Racing Restriction in France

The BHA wishes to alert all Veterinary Surgeons of a Rule change by France Galop to the effect that no horse shall race in France within 14 days of an intra-articular administration of gluco-corticoid (any type of corticosteroid). This provision came into effect from 1 January 2013.

The position of the BHA in relation to corticosteroids is still under consideration.
