Kentucky Horse Race Commission: Post Derby and Oaks race test results cleared

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (KHRC)announced Tuesday it has received the post-race test results from both the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby, according to a press release.

After undergoing full instrumental analysis to detect more than 1,500 substances, all samples were cleared.

The KHRC’s official laboratory, LGC Science Group, Ltd. couriered samples to its lab Friday and Saturday evenings. Chemists and analysts worked through the weekend to expedite testing results.

“The ability to produce results quickly is integral in giving the wagering public, industry stakeholders, and all competitors the knowledge and confidence that these races were conducted with integrity,” said KHRC executive director, John T. Ward. “And, I am very thankful to the LGC employees for working through the weekend to apply their state of the art testing and produce results with such a rapid turnaround time."
