New York horsemen to buy drug-testing equipment for lab


The New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association will buy drug-testing equipment worth $450,000 for the state’s drug-testing laboratory at Morrisville State College, the association announced on Tuesday, one day after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill extending an 8-year-old law that provides the association with 2 percent of the purse money generated by the New York Racing Association.
