It was interesting to read what that owner said about SA’s sealed track when they had all those fatalities. But I think many new people (to horse racing) will lose interest reading it as it did kind of jump back and forth a bit.

8 of 10 runners in the Quarter Horse Futurity test positive. They did hair testing.

I use albuterol in my inhaler, I wonder if a handler also uses it? But, I think if it’s in hair, it’s been in the system longer?

If it's showing up in a hair sample they have been receiving it for a while.  Probably stopped it so it would not show in blood or urine, but hair test completely different

Honestly I wish they had banned the 6 from racing.

I don’t remember reading, would have to go back to see if they said when they instated that type of test, but I think it would have a different testing protocols with testing hair samples? But if it was never documented that they had been given it, then they should scratch them.
