This issue is starting to become a hot topic

 

 

Horsemen’s groups largely support proposed changes in race-day medication rules but are drawing a line in the sand when it comes to the anti-bleeding drug Salix.

In the past few months two organizations have taken the first steps toward a race-day ban on Salix. Breeders’ Cup won’t allow use of the drug in 2-year-olds during the 2012 World Championships, and the American Graded Stakes Committee, which falls under the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association, voted to pull graded status for 2-year-old events next year if Salix, formerly known as Lasix, is used.

Are you ready to discuss the use of Lasix and training or do you stand by your statement that Lasix is not used for training, and let me clarify this to make it crystal clear, I am talking about works.

So if lasix is banned will horses be choking for hours after races as this blog suggests?

McLaughlin and Darley get an atta boy IMHO

Novak: McLaughlin experiments with Salix-free juveniles

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin has quietly been experimenting with running two-year-olds without anti-bleeding medication, reports Claire Novak for ESPN.  Novak says four times during the Saratoga meet, McLaughlin-trained juveniles racing for the Darley and Shadwell Stables went postward without Salix (Lasix).  One of the two-year-olds - a Darley runner named Alpha - won:

I meant to mention after his race that Alpha ran without Lasix.  Thanks for posting this.

I like this, a nice quiet way of going about it and see what happens. I wish a few other trainers would also start this and let's see what happens.

Lasix: Demystifying the drug, methods of training without it

Email
Staff illustration

Soon after leaving the service in the mid-1940s, Mel Stute went to work as a groom for trainer Yorkie McLeod at the old Tanforan Racetrack near San Francisco. McLeod had a funny way of trying to prevent his horses from the age-old problem of bleeding. He would ask his young groom to wrap copper wire around the base of a horse’s tail before a race − thin, eight-inch strips of the sort you would find in hardware stores.

Mizzy's owners are racing all of them without lasix and she said they all have done well - and they recuperate faster after a race without it.  I'm still a fan of no lasix/salix for ALL!

The pics were gross!
