Racehorses Test Positive for Methamphetamine Exposure

Kentucky Horse Racing Commission officials are investing how two Standardbred horses became exposed to methamphetamine while racing at The Red Mile racetrack in Lexington, Ky.

Racing commission spokesman Dick Brown said the horses tested positive for the drug in post race spit sample analysis.

"Some trainer is responsible for both positives," Brown said.

Brown did not disclose how the horses became exposed to the drug.

Judges will be hearing the case soon, Brown said.
