OBS Policy for Medication, Prohibited Practices, Riding Crops and Horseshoes
(Effective February 2009)
All medication administered to a horse within 72 hours of an under-tack show or beginning of a sales session must be
reported the earlier of 12 hours of treatment or 1 hour prior to an under-tack show or sales session. The reports must be
signed by a Florida licensed veterinarian and submitted to the medical information center. The reports must identify the
medication, and the amount, strength, and mode of administration; the date and time of administration; and the diagnosis
and/or reason for treatment. Medications may only be administered at or below manufacturers recommended dosages.
1) No more than two (2) non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) may be administered.
2) No more than one (1) cortico-steroid may be administered. 3) No bronchodilators, including but not limited to Clenbuterol and Albuterol, may be administered within 72 hours of an
under-tack show or sales session in which the horse is entered.
4) The following exogenous anabolic steroids or their esters may not be administered within 45 days of sale:
Stanozolol, Boldenone, Nandrolone, or Testosterone
The administration of any other exogenous anabolic steroid at any time is prohibited.
5) The following medications may not be administered on the sales grounds:
all substances classified as either Class 1 or Class 2 by the Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI). Current classifications and Florida Statute Chapter 535 are available at the OBS office, and on the website under consignor information. Please note: Prolixin (Fluphenazine) and Reserpine are class 2 medications
Please be aware many herbal supplements contain prohibited substances including bronchodilators and stimulants.


Post-breeze random testing will be performed on horses selected at the sole discretion of OBS. Buyers may request testing for exogenous anabolic steroids at time of purchase and undisclosed medication within 24 hours of purchase. Any horse that receives exogenous anabolic steroids or undisclosed medication identified by the test is subject to return. A horse will be withdrawn and promptly removed from the sales grounds if a positive test result is received prior to the sale and a split sample is not requested. A positive test result received or confirmed post sale allows the purchaser to rescind the sale. The consignor is responsible for expenses incurred by the purchaser and for OBS commission and entry fees. Test results will be submitted to the Department of Agriculture as required. The consignor is subject to penalties described in Florida Statute Chapter 535.08 including being charged with a misdemeanor and barred from selling for a period of 2 years.

of this rule will result in a $500 fine to be paid by the consignor. Chronic offenders may be banned from riding on the sales
grounds. The sales company or its representatives have full, final and sole authority to interpret and enforce this rule. Funds
collected from fines levied will be distributed to a thoroughbred industry related charity at the sole discretion of the sales
