Anti-bleeding drugs are at the focus of another Horse Racing Commission meeting today.

The Horse Racing Commission will hear debate about whether to ban the use of Furosemide on the days of certain races in Kentucky.

The drug, marketed as Lasix or Salix, is the only one allowed on race day in the U.S.

If the ban is approved, Kentucky would be the first state to take action against the drug which is already banned in other countries.
