Issues

Horse racing

In February 2014, the New Mexico legislature passed legislation to crack down on horse racing cheating, including rules against trainers and owners who dope their horses with performance-enhancing drugs.[1] The bill would eject anyone whose license had been suspended or revoked for drugging horses from the grounds of their facilities. Ezzell supported the legislation. “I think it makes all the sense in the world,” said Ezzell in an interview. “We need to be a leader in the nation and not have everybody looking at New Mexico and saying, ‘If you want to cheat, go the Land of Enchantment.’”[1] Ezzell said further: “Everybody should play by the rules. It’s time cheaters understand we aren’t going to allow this to continue in the state of New Mexico.”
