Horses on Steroids

Yes even horses take steroids to get an unfair advantage and win races.  Horse trainers Mary Wolfson and Nick Canani were fined after their horses were found to have prohibited substances in test samples.  Wolfson was fined $3,000 after horses Jessica Is Back and Miss Singhsix finished second and third in the Sixty Sails Handicap at Hawthorne Race Course with positive tests for prednisone, a synthetic steroid.  Canini was fined $1,000 and suspended 15 days after his horse Copper Forest won the second race at Arlington on May 6 and tested positive for etodolac, a banned non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
