Don't hold your breath.

What about a Federal law that would make it illegal to transport a horse younger than four years old across state lines for purposes of competing in events that award prize money?

That would be a hard sell, though, the racing lobby is strong and so many States get substantial tax revenues from track racing. That's why betting on horse races over the Internet was exempted from the Federal law restricting banking transactions to Internet gambling sites.
