my mom works as a groom in a harness barn, she's not to big on the drugging either. they drug and drug but stop before the race so they don't get caught in a test. they pee test horses like humans.

she also not happy how some others in training smack them around. but she gives them a cuddle bug treatment, and some jerk horses become better performers.

but because she is "just a groom" it seems to be some people devaule her. but are amazed on the turn around on some individuals.
although she said there is one horse there who does better when he is smacked /spaked and yelled at, around

I thought that the U.S.A had banned the use of Lazex and other drugs used on horses a couple of years must be banned and if caught the trainer should have a lifetime ban..the horseracing industry must catch a wake up because to them its all about money..I know there are some kind trainers and nice horse people, but there are also some really rotten ones too.
