USA : Racehorse doping racket uncovered

An investigation following the 2019 Kentucky Derby revealed that the racehorses had been given doping substances to improve their performance. “This is simply ill treatment of horses. The animals suffered from heart attacks, exhaustion, fractures, and some even died whilst the people engaged in this conduct continued to make money by embezzling the industry out of several billions of dollars across the world”, explained an FBI spokesperson. In total 27 people, including vets, were charged on several accounts, including tampering with medicines and planning to mislabel medicines.
