So you're saying there is no drugging of any horse, what-so-ever, because they test them after every race?
There are always those people who cheat the system( no matter what the sport) but here in Australia competing horses are checked before races and place getters are checked after the race.
There is a strike system in place so the public isn't made aware of first strikes etc
I'm not saying there isn't drug abuse in the sport but the system is there to stop it.
The biggest problem in racing is corrupt Jockeys and trainers.
Where there is money and humans are involved there will always be someone trying to cheat the system. There are bad eggs trying to do this wether it is big business, Football, or horse racing. I think the horse racing industry has taken a lot more steps to clean the corruption up in there game than most professionals sports or business organizations.
No doubt the sport has cleaned up from what it was, I think all racing has ( some would argue that harness racing is still very corrupt tho)
It's a shame really because there are a lot of hard working people in the industry, you don't produce a winner overnight and if your not involved there alot of minute details that people
Look at black caviar in Australia, it takes a week to recover after each race, needs to be constantly moving before a race ( doesn't stay in the stable on a racecourse), yes it has unbelievable talent but it doesn't win because of that alone.
Black caviars full brother is an absolute donkey....
