 This is the absolute worst news.  You are right about XY Jet--- how awful. No doubt those drugs played a role in his untimely death.  And poor Max-- now his great win in the Saudi Cup will be suspect. It is just such a shame. innocent horses at the whim of crooked people who will do anything to win. It makes me sick.

MS’s Saudi Cup win will definitely be looked at with  skepticism. You are correct not the horses fault at all.

We need a governing body, uniform drug rules in all 50 states and stricter penalties for doping.

So how come these PED’s didn’t show up in test barn tests? We’re they made up of legal drugs?

From the press conference:

"These animals were injected and force fed illegal and experimental drugs"

Blood builders - adulterated and mis-branded and customized

Pain blockers including cobra venom

Broncho dialaters

SGF-1000 which Servis used was unregistered

XY Jet was regularly doped with mis-branded and adultered blood enhancing drugs in a callous effort to increase that horse's performance.

So, I’m assuming this was done before the required withdrawal date if it wasn’t detected, or were drugs not that were not included in what they were tested for?

I hope this wasn’t another botched job by PETA, ala Asmussen ?

Some could not be tested for is what I am understanding.

No, I don't think this is a PETA job.
