Safety measures , for horses, put into place at Churchill ( Keeneland will too) seem to be holding well. But in reading this, I believe it’s really meant for horses stabled there and not those coming for stakes races?

Mid Atlantic tracks see decrease in fatalities at their tracks, now we need to see that across the nation and with a continued downward trend in those numbers!

UC Davis gets the PETscan and will be also be used in scanning progressive laminitis too!

The racehorse population of Golden Gate Fields racetrack will also benefit from the new PET scanner. As the technique has quickly gained in popularity at Santa Anita Park, a few Northern California racehorses have traveled south to be imaged with PET. Now these horses won't need to travel so far. In addition to being in operation at UC Davis, the MILEPET scanner will soon be transported on a weekly basis to image horses at the equine hospital at Golden Gate Fields.
