State-Of-The-Art Lab Opens in Argentina


The new lab at San Isidro in Buenos Aires

Demonstrating its commitment to the fight against doping in Argentina, a new chemical services area has been opened at San Isidro Racetrack in Buenos Aires.

Professional staff at the lab belong to the Association of Official Racing Chemists (AROC) and regularly take part in the proficiency testing program, designed to check and detect the use of prohibitive substances in horses.

The Argentinian Jockey Club has invested about US$1.4 million in equipment and facilities over the last two years as it works towards certification from the International Federation of Horseracing Authority (IFHA) to become an IFHA reference laboratory to analyze samples from all Group 1 races conducted across South America.
