I can remember when Lasix (Salix) was not an issue in racing. Things were much better in those days, if only because I was much younger. . .
Really like the two-page Wagering 101 section in the Keeneland program, but absolutely love it has the need to inform and educate newcomers to the sport. . .
Current storm over the Grand National at Aintree (think National Velvet) and whether the race should be continued in the wake of two horses dying from injuries certainly is indicative that tradition is no guarantee of the future. That message should not be lost on us in the U.S.
