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.

Someone else has the guts to do this, besides Churchill and NY- bravo! And in quarter horse racing too!

Gulfstream expands their “ voided claims” by having vets checkout horses after cooling out and can void if a horse bleeds or appears lame/injured

and this ........fr Joy Aten FB entry:

"The racing rags reported Jill and Bob Baffert’s gelding Dr. Dorr (pictured here) was retired merely due to “age catching up to him” (he was 7 - for the non-racehorse, that’s one just coming into his prime). Once at New Vocations, he was diagnosed with “suspensory desmitis” in ALL 4 LEGS and “arthritis” in his left front. " 7yrs and Not a leg to stand on
