Horse Racing Commission to vote on steroid ban

Kentucky's newly created Horse Racing Commission is preparing to vote this summer on a steroid ban for the sport.

The commission met briefly Wednesday morning in Lexington to swear in its new members. Gov. Steve Beshear last week disbanded the previous Kentucky Horse Racing Authority and replaced it with the new group.

Commission members said the governor has indicated he wants swift movement on steroids. About 10 states have approved a ban, but Kentucky is a notable holdout.

Racing commission executive director Lisa Underwood says she expects a vote on the issue in August.
