The names of two trainers referred to in the Australian Crime Commission (ACC) report are unlikely to ever be known, according to Victorian horseracing's peak administrative body.
And Racing Victoria (RV) can't be sure anything discovered by the ACC would be relevant to their policing of racing.
"We don't know what it means," said RV's head of integrity Services Dayle Brown.
Brown said RV had been testing for the peptides referred to by the ACC in relation to footballers, and was yet to detect any in horses.
"We've been testing since before the spring carnival," he said.
Rather than plunging the racing industry into crisis mode as it has in the football world, the ACC report is being seen as an endorsement of racing's established practices.
RV's chief executive Bernard Saundry said racing spent $15 million a year on integrity.
"That's more than any other sporting organisation in the country.
"Integrity is our No.1 priority, we are committed to a level playing field."
The situation with the football codes has given racing the opportunity to shrug off, at least for moment, its troubles involving corrupt jockeys and allegations of race fixing.
Brown said procedures such as stable raids and testing that have long been in place in the racing industry should serve as an example to other sports seeking to upgrade their integrity.
"Other sports are going to have to look at doing what we do,' he said.
"Racing's been looking at these things for a long, long time."
