Kentucky Horse Racing Commission looking into regulating compounders

Kentucky Horse Racing Commission chair Ned Bonnie

The commissioner of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission announced that the organization is looking into ways it can add regulatory oversight of drug compounders. The action comes after a year that has seen horse deaths at a training center and other issues related to equine drug compounders. Rules committee chair Ned Bonnie said it has become a serious issue for horse racing in Kentucky and other states. There is little federal oversight of compounders compared to the regulation of pharmaceutical companies that manufacture drugs. Article
