Three members of the California Horse Racing Board were in conflict of interest when they voted against a request by harness interests for additional racing rights at Los Alamitos Race Course, a Sacramento Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday. In ruling on a suit against the racing board, Judge Allen Fields said that CHRB chairman Leslie Liscom, Ray Seeley and Rosemary Ferraro should have disqualified themselves from voting because of connections with Hollywood Park, which owns Los Alamitos.

A Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday in Sacramento that three racing board members--chairman Leslie Liscom, Ray Seeley and Rosemary Ferraro--were in conflict of interest when they voted last October to give harness horsemen a 17-week schedule, instead of the 22 weeks they said they were entitled to.

Race horses in California will be subjected to urine-testing for performance-enhancing drugs beginning this week at Hollywood Park, Golden Gate Fields and Los Alamitos. Racing Commissioner Rosemary Ferraro said Wednesday that the new procedure--which supplements the current testing done by Truesdail Laboratories--could begin as soon as today throughout the state, and "certainly no later than Friday." International Diagnostic Systems of St. Joseph, Mich., has been granted official status by the California Horse Racing Board to conduct the supplemental program, which will examine about 50 random samples taken at each race track every racing day. IDS spokesman Charles Prange said that any confirmed positives will be sent on to the equine-testing department at Cornell University for further verification.
