Which Board Members Voted Sure to Drugging NRHA Horses

With the announcement of the brand new NRHA drug rule revisions, we’ve been arduous at work with folks hitting the telephones to learn how board members allegedly voted in “SediGate”. The supply to inject horses with a sedative half-hour previous to an occasion throughout warm-up occasions.

Within the open letter to all members, NRHA President Rick Clark, suggested it required a supermajority of 67% vote to go the brand new drug guidelines and penalties; subsequently requiring 12 votes minimal. The president can solely vote in a tie-breaker, so he’s excluded. Individuals can solely vote as soon as.

Clark goes on to put in writing “Just like the business, the board was break up between the individuals who needed the coverage and people who had been towards it. We didn’t have the help to go to a no allowance for Romifidine (Sedivet) right now. We had been confronted with some unlucky however very seemingly eventualities if we didn’t get the help we wanted to enact some adjustments.”

The Method it Allegedly Went:

18 votes on the Board of Administrators and Govt Committee:

  • 4 voted – No to Sedivet – 22%
  • 14 voted – Sure to Sedivet – 78%

Every individual can solely vote as soon as, even when on each the board and govt committee.

Particular person member votes are proven under.

If a member of the Board of Administrators or Govt Committee believes their vote is incorrectly reported, we invite the actual particular person to put in writing to us and advise their vote, and we’ll instantly replace the data.

These Sure voters are the individuals who, as acknowledged by Rick Clark, didn’t need any adjustments to the foundations and agreed provided that Sedivet was included as an permitted drug.

With such a margin of distinction, the probability of Sedivet being voted out is impossible within the foreseeable future. The potential of the present new penalties being squashed or watered down is extraordinarily excessive.

With the outcry on social media, their voting definitely doesn’t signify the membership’s needs.
