In a landmark development, the New York State Racing and Wagering Board announced Thursday that, beginning Sept. 1, horses that run there can be treated with Lasix, a diuretic used in all other major racing jurisdictions to curb bleeding. The ruling will not affect the June 10 Belmont Stakes, the final leg of the Triple Crown, but on Oct. 28, Belmont will play host to the $10-million Breeders' Cup, a seven-race program that attracts horses from throughout the world.

NYRA will make "a couple of announcements" then, said Glen Mathis, a NYRA spokesman in New York City.

And the fans came in droves--more than 100,000 for the first time in its storied history--and bet an extra $11 million. This year, after two more record-setting meets, another four days were tacked on, giving the venerable track its earliest starting date ever.

The Triple Crown showdown between Lil E. Tee, the Kentucky Derby winner, and Pine Bluff, who won Saturday's Preakness, probably won't happen. And once again, New York's racing rules prohibiting use of the diuretic Lasix will be responsible. Lil E.
