A meeting of the California Horse Racing Board's committee on night racing at Hollywood Park, held Thursday in El Segundo, emphasized a broader potential problem for the sport: A split between owners and trainers who share membership in the California Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Assn. "The HBPA has failed to represent owners," said Mace Siegel, who races a large stable based in California. "The HBPA is no longer benevolent, and it is not protective of my interests as an owner."

A report by an independent New Mexico laboratory indicates that as many as 60 horses that ran at Santa Anita last year had suspicious postrace urine samples. International Diagnostics Systems of Las Cruces, N.M., which analyzed almost 500 urine samples from the 27-day Oak Tree meeting at Santa Anita last fall, found that the horses had possibly run with a variety of illegal drugs, including cocaine. The laboratory identified 16 chemical products that are banned by state racing officials.
