Description

Des Moines Register looks at dog and horse racing in Iowa; shows how the state's "zero tolerance" drugging law and drug tests are easily circumvented by owners giving their dogs steroids; reveals the state racing commission is involved in questionable practices and lax enforcement of rules; finds only 20 percent of greyhound owners at Iowa tracks are natives of Iowa, and discovers fierce competition among Iowa cities that have dog or horse tracks.
