Pharmacy tells AP made mistake in polo horse drug

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Florida pharmacy has told The
Associated Press it incorrectly prepared a medication for 21 polo
horses that died over the weekend while preparing to play in a
championship match.

Jennifer Beckett of Franck's Pharmacy in Ocala told the AP in a statement the business conducted in internal investigation that
found "the strength of an ingredient in the medication was
incorrect."

The statement did not say what the ingredient was.

State authorities have been investigating.

The pharmacy says it is cooperating with the investigation.

The horses were part of the Lechuza Polo team.
