    He was a serial offender. Stateside when the Drug issue first started being enforced-To Punt–You would pick the states that were strickly enforcing the rules-Then You would Take on the super Trainer as they are called in the US–& Chuck them throw them out Fancy on a in form lessr Win % trainer-And The Strike race was high—Or A Horse you know was on Steriods-Now you know he’s off-First race out you would see a 1/5 Fav go down Outta the Money—

    Today? I dont know? But Being A cop I know Several ways to beat almost any drug test. Thats humans not horses–Horses I Dunno?

    I hope Steve A wasn’t that dumb again. :cry:

    I see Asmussen won the feature event at Philadelphia Park last night though a much bigger story from a UK point of view broke there on Friday that the Journalists on here don’t seem to have picked up as yet.

    They must be spending too much time on here!

    Bud, I really didn’t know you were sick. I just presumed the poster who seemed to be saying he didn’t understand what you were saying couldn’t follow the American references and the American style of presenting them. Anyway best of luck, and keep on keeping us informed please. Z

    Yes I took it as Both–But a heads up–Sometimes I may want to write and it will be a mess–You’ll know–Shoot I don’t even notice at times—

    The little story I wrote-((Super Trainer)) Steve A Rick D–Trainers with high% when they took there animals off the juice the animals do to the Past Perfprmances were highly reguarded-well bet– Well most of these were vulnerable favorites–This went on for about 6-8 months– New York was SLOW on the Changes–So a Steve A was a great bet there still some others—

    We have mant meets ending–I will let you know Del Mar & Saratoga’s atmoshere-If you can do All Weather-Del Mar could be a prophitable late night..Also Saratoga–Fine Turf racing- Remember Late Foot on US Turf–The fellow on ATR who does the US races is real good–I listened in tonight–Real good–Great I should say–Well one night – Lets not get ahead of myself–

    Drug tests-I’d never do anything illegal–Be well

    Good luck with a speedy recovery BUD. Your right about the drug testing, it is exactly the same with horses too. There are several ways in which you can obtain a negative result, I have never doped a horse and never would but it does go on in many countries. Before they cottoned onto milkshaking, it was an easy option for a person to slip a few drops of narcotic into the mix. The bicarb mix would reduce the effects of lactic acid and the narcotic which was made undetectable by the milkshake reduced fatigue, stress, tiredness. Horses would reguarly go off 10 lengths in front and stay there for the whole race. The unlucky ones would drop dead during or after the race.
    We had a big scandal in NZ a few years ago where blue magic (propantheline bromide) was widely used by trainers. This relaxes the muscles and increases blood flow. Some trainers were so involved that they took their own lives.Didnt you guys in OZ have the same problem?.

    The whole thing is a joke anyway. These super trainers, like Assmussen, Pletcher etc, have multiple strings of horses scattered at various tracks throughout the US. So basically each string is actually being trained on a day to day basis by assistants. When the trainer gets a ban all his horses are then transfered into the name of the assistant trainers. So nothing really changes on a day to day basis as far as the horse is concerned. For example, Curlin ran under Scott Blasi’s name for a chunk of his career, while Assmussen was sitting out an earlier ban.
