INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Last week GREY2KUSA wrote to the Alabama Governor’s Task Force with information about two racing greyhounds testing cocaine positive. We asked that the Task Force launch a formal investigation into the following incidents:

  • On or about December 23, 2009 a greyhound named Kiowa Fly Lucia tested positive for cocaine at Mobile County Greyhound Park.
  • On or about November 11, 2009 a greyhound under the control of an individual named Robert E. Trow tested positive for cocaine at the Birmingham Racecourse.
