Gulfstream House Rule on Clenbuterol:
- Clenbuterol use is prohibited in racing and training unless the following conditions are met:
- The prescription for clenbuterol is made for a specific horse based upon a specific diagnosis. The prescription and volume dispensed cannot exceed a treatment period of 30 days.
- The veterinarian must provide a copy of the prescription and diagnosis to the Gulfstream Park Senior Veterinarian for review and approval. The horse may not receive clenbuterol before this approval is issued.
- Trainers must make daily notification to the official veterinarian of horse(s) in their custody having been administered clenbuterol. Notification shall be made on a form and by a deadline designated by Gulfstream Park.
- A horse to which clenbuterol has been administered shall be placed on the official Veterinarian’s List and must include a timed workout and blood and urine sampling. Both samples must have no detectable clenbuterol. The testing costs will be paid by the owner(s) of the horse.
- A horse may not enter to race until all the requirements have been completed in subdivision (d).
- If a clenbuterol is detected in a horse’s post-race or out of competition sample and appropriate notification as outlined in subdivision 1(a) or (b) was not completed, the horse shall immediately be placed on the official Veterinarian’s List pending the outcome of an investigation. The horse shall be required to meet all conditions for removal from the veterinarian’s list outlined in subdivision 1(d), above. The confirmation of clenbuterol in a test sample of a horse without a valid prescription or in a post-race sample constitutes a violation of Gulfstream Park House Rules. In addition, possession of clenbuterol without a valid prescription is a violation of Gulfstream Park House Rules.
