Honestly, I think the only people who will be floored by this are those who think U.S. racing, and everyone in it, is participating clean and honest.
"2 months after the Belmont Stakes the CHRB held a closed session and decided his food may have been contaminated" and the inquiry was closed...
I guess they don't realize that drugs are no long put in with hypodermic needles, they are in the feed itself. The feed guys are the new pharmacists, often coming up with new undetetables, and/or staying one step ahead of the testing technology.
The feed is tainted, but on purpose.
Guess we should expect that AP and Justify pass on their "classic distance stayer" genes to their progeny......watch them all turn out to be sprinters / milers.
CHRB starts to seem like one of those protection outfits back in the days of the mafia. They have to do what they have to do in order to keep the operation running ------ they will protect their own.
