The Louisiana Racing Commission adopted national uniform medication rules during a meeting Monday, but there will be a grace period before penalties are levied against the connections of horses in violation of the new guidelines, state officials said. Trainers will be made aware of violations during the grace period that runs from Sept. 20, when the uniform rules take effect in Louisiana, through Nov. 15.
