TVG reports the Stronach Group, which already supports the Horseracing Integrity Act, is announcing its two California tracks will impose new house rules eliminating race-day Lasix, review and revise all medication policies, and examine other issues like use of riding crop.
@AyudaSOSVzla MI MAMA SUFRIO UN INFARTO necesita con caracter de urgencia DE CARDEVILOL DE 12.5, ATORVASTATINA DE 40, ASPIRINA DE 81, MEFORMINE DE 1000, CLOPIDROGEL DE 75, LASIX O FUROSEMIDA por favor ayudenos
GHF is happy to run under international rules. All of our horses in training are in California and first 2yos ship Monday.
Curious to see how “house rules” vs “horsemen’s consent” plays out.
Blaming recent horse deaths on lasix is like blaming global warming on abortion.
To me, lasix perhaps the least consequential portion of all of this. Whip issue massive for perception. Horses on grounds earlier and greater OOC testing might meaningfully cut down on incorrect usage of otherwise legal treatments. Hope fewer unsound horses even get to racetrack
"I think that’s probably a very big mistake."
"I’m comfortable with it."
"I do think there are horses that need Lasix."
Trainers react to new rules announced for Santa Anita and Golden Gate 👉 https://t.co/XGa2DUTrLW
Estas revisiones incluyen las mejores prácticas que se emplean actualmente en las mejores pistas del mundo:
• Prohibido el uso de Lasix.
• Aumentar la prohibición de los terapéuticos legales, las inyecciones conjuntas, la terapia con ondas de choque y los esteroides anabólicos.
Can TSG actually ban Lasix unilaterally? Isn't that a decision that has to go through Baffert/Pegram, err I mean CHRB/TOC?They are the ones that give out dates.
Get the popcorn and take a seat. I think the movie is just starting.
This is one of the worst executed deflections of the real problem i’ve seen. Even worse, openly admitting you’re basically ending the careers of horses that depend on lasix is infuriating. This whole process has just been handled so so poorly. 🤦♂️#Terrible #SantaAnita https://t.co/cjmt1aOyxy
Banning raceday Lasix is the correct move.
It discourages the use of P.E.D. 💉
Proponents of Lasix use would like to continue using the diuretic to flush out a multitude of other medications. Some of them 'could' be performance enhancers.
@augustus_neil Let’s not forget that lasix can mask other drugs. Sad for horses that really need it. Maybe they can have a rule that a state vet has to see the blood then a horse can get lasix. 🤷🏽♀️ We all know not every horse needs lasix.
@yasmelys10@AyudaSOSVzla Tengo Furosemida, pero en ampollas!.debo verificar la fecha de vencimiento.también tengo unas cajitas de Lasix en pastillas, pero esas si están vencidas!.puedes preguntarle al médico tratante si le sirve asi!! Trate de donarlas antes de que se vendieran pero nadie las solicito!
@BradWeisbord Europe, Japan, Dubai, Hong Kong all no lasix / no need for US to use it - NYRA had best horses and racing when they were the last holdout - hay, oats, water great for horses great for racing
@francesjkaron I think Lasix is not the problem. It is used to protect horses lung from bleeding. The real problem is the Track, trainers and Vet have been medicating for many years in the same way. The deaths of the 22 horses is recently
Lets face it all u degenerates (like me) u will bet if they run on lasix or not, you will bet if it is horses , sports, or dogs. U will bet if it is pro or college. U will bet if its Keeneland,Santa Anita or Delta Downs. Stop acting there are games on at 9PM to bet
@raypaulick I do support not using lasix, but also I don’t mind if a horse has a document bleed by a certified veterinarian that they could use them then. The use of lasix just to use lasix is a major problem. Once heard a vet from Rood and Riddle say that outcross horses almost never bleed
@DRFHegarty might as well close down california racing. i just hope this california crap doesn't spread to other tracks. its not the lasix or the whips. how many breakdowns on turf I'm guessing 2 or less. if the ratio is 10-1 dirt vs turf that tells me the surface is the problem
I am 100% all for lasix being a thing of the past in American Horse Racing BUT.....
As a handicapper, it is going to be VERY DIFFICULT in having a strong opinion in races where horses who have used Lasix there whole life ship in and cant...think about the Breeders Cup https://t.co/QzftES6c17
@TheSirBarton@JerseyTbred@ballydolphin@santaanitapark Gulfstream as well, yes. Exempt from Lasix, whip, and other new rules? or not? Others will know far better than I about Gulfstream's safety record this winter. *Guessing* that main track was made for Florida downpours?
@brooklyncowboy1 Exactly. They’re charging $25-30 for a single administration of lasix. Look it up and see what it costs. It’s dirt cheap.
I guarantee they do what a lot of companies do with shipping costs. Pay $15, and charge the customer $25.
There’s no way the track loses money on that deal.
@ballydolphin@BklynBckstretch Still trying to wrap my head around the all these changes,dont think they are bad, but are we addressing the current problem, the whip seems to be a PR smoother over(technical term there 🤷♀️) and when does every other track get on board with these?Do horses just stop using Lasix?
