This is good news! But they don’t say what the actual technique is. Is it dye used like in an mri, or is it more of a scan? They also don’t mention costs of this diagnosis.

Page 4 of this PR sales article explains it a little bit more, I do not think they inject die, but not 100% sure.

More can be done in racing on injuries. That jerk Pender that got suspended was going to run his horse with fractured sesmoids, knowingly!!!!

 OMG- what kind of human being would do that, actually race a horse he/she knew had fractured sesmoids? he should never be allowed on a race track ever again

He should be banned for life IMHO. To want to race a horse knowing it has fractures is beyond stupid and cruel. IMHO

 As you said it is cruel and abusive beyond words. A lifetime ban should apply in this case.

Doing the right thing and lead by example - Stonestreet of course!

The program was developed in response to reports of off-label bisphosphonate use in growing horses.

At Stonestreet Farm, we focus on breeding and raising the strongest, healthiest yearlings possible.

It’s why we have developed an innovative blood sampling, testing and secure storage protocol in partnership with the University of Kentucky Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center—to give buyers absolute assurance.

We invite everyone to join us because breeding and raising the healthiest, strongest racehorses is not only good for business, it’s good for the sport.

Stonestreet Farm partners with University of Kentucky on blood-testing repository

Nicole RussoJul 29, 2019

Several notable breeders and auction consignors applauded the policy as an important step toward transparency and integrity, including Barbara Banke’s Stonestreet Farm. Now, Stonestreet has gone a step further by essentially developing its own bisphosphonate and anabolic steroid test repository.
