I notice that vet put the blame solely on trainers, but aren’t some vets looking the other way or helping out some of those trainers? I wonder if she feels threatened she would have to answer /abide by a commission?

I've no first hand knowledge but from what one hears there are vets who look the other way.  And those that provide the 'goods'.

Was just reading Pletchers comments.  He is right.

"  ...we have to continue to work harder and do better at this. It’s a crisis. In racing, a lot of times, we get through one crisis and then we kind of coast. We can’t let our foot off the pedal. We have to get this thing sorted out and do a lot better than we’re doing now.”

That's the way to treat them right - give them a nice break at the farm.

Darn it...it was bad enough we all were holding our breaths for the BC races to be completed safely...then the breakdown. 

For the casual horse racing fan and what apparently happened according to this article, I fear the end of horse racing could come, at least in California.
