Letter to the Editor: Arthur Hancock



It is quite a wonderful feeling to watch the Winter Olympics, confident that every athlete in every event is competing without cheating. It is indeed moving and inspirational watching the win, place, and show recipients proudly and happily receive their medals, knowing that each Olympian competed without the use of performance-enhancing drugs.

We all owe a debt of gratitude to the governing body of the United States Olympic Committee for placing the rules, testing standards, and oversight in the capable hands of Travis Tygart and the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) to guarantee compliance. Would that the horse racing industry possessed such vision, integrity, and courage. – ARTHUR HANCOCK
