I am proud of New Mexico for taking this step in out of competition testing. It will help the trainers and owners who train in NM win races that in the past were won by shippers from Texas IMHO.

How long does it take for drugs to show up in hair? Do they compensate for drug therapy prior to a return to training? What if a worker transfers something from their hands to a horses' body/hair?

I think mostly they are looking for Anabolic Steroids, I believe they show up right away and they show up longer than a blood sample does. Transfer from a person to the hair is less likely to occur making this a safer procedure.
