Amicar is now banned by Pennsylvania Harness Racing Commission

Harrisburg, PA --- The Pennsylvania Harness Racing Commission, in consultation with Dr. Mary Robinson, University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School of Medicine, New Bolton Center, has announced that effective March 1 the pre-race medication Amicar will no longer be permitted to be used in conjunction with Furosemide.

The commission has made this determination after reviewing the scientific data and information regarding the efficacy of Amicar as a pre-race medication.

Accordingly, any findings of Amicar after March 1 from samples collected during routine testing will result in a positive test which may result in a fine and/or suspension and loss of any earned purse.
